1. Mike Williams (Los Angeles Chargers No. 7)
Even though he wasn’t the first player selected at his position, Clemson’s Mike Williams is still considered one of the top wide receivers from this year’s draft class, and the Los Angeles Chargers are certainly lucky to have him on board. Philip Rivers has always been considered one of the toughest quarterbacks in the NFL, and to see the veteran bring a dominant playmaker like Williams on board will certainly make life much easier running the Chargers’ offense.
For Williams to bounce back after missing just about all of the 2015 season by catching 98 passes for 1,361 yards with 11 touchdowns last season with the Tigers shows how special this kid truly is, and he certainly would have been a great addition for the Los Angeles Rams on offense. When comparing Williams to what Jared Goff currently has to work with in the passing game in Tavon Austin and Robert Woods, there’s no debate the former Clemson star would have easily made the jump to being the team’s No. 1 option in the passing game.

After looking at all of the struggles from the 2016 season, it’s clear the Rams need some sort of upgrade at wide receiver if Goff is going to develop into the type of quarterback they are hoping for. Obviously, it would have been impossible for Los Angeles to land Goff last year if it wasn’t for the trade with the Tennessee Titans, but it’s difficult not to wonder what could have been with Williams when seeing how desperate they are for help at wide receiver.
