Mike Williams is a big-bodied receiver who makes big plays
Had an injury not ended his 2015 season, Mike Williams would probably have been drafted in this past NFL Draft, and likely would have been a high pick. In 2016, he recorded 84 receptions for 1,171 yards and 10 touchdowns, and he’ll be in contention to be the first wide receiver taken in 2017.
At 6’3″ and 225 pound, Williams has the size that the NFL covets. He also knows how to use it to make plays on the field. He uses both his height and his strength very well, boxing out defenders and making difficult catches in traffic. He also does a terrific job of going up and making the tough, contested catches. There are sometimes lapses and he drops ones that he should catch, but if he straightens that out, he could be a star at the next level.
Williams could be the first receiver off the board, and might go inside the top ten, so the Cardinals might not be able to get him, depending on where they wind up picking. He gives them an Anquan Boldin-like talent to play alongside Fitzgerald, and then take over as their top guy once Fitzgerald hangs them up.
