"I just kept the Wide Receiver U thing going".
All of that made the drafting of Williams, at a position where the team has depth, a bit of a head-scratcher. They drafted wide receiver Mike Williams, who provides Rivers with another target for his passes and sends a message that they are focused on the here and now more than what might happen a few years from now. The biggest, of course, is the fact that the Chargers are firmly behind him as the starting quarterback, opting not to take his heir in the first round.
Early on in his collegiate career, it was apparent that this would be another in a seemingly long line of players with the name Mike Williams to be drafted into the NFL.
The biggest complaint with this pick would be that of all of the Chargers needs, wide receiver probably doesn't even come close to the multitude of other needs the team has- most specifically on defense. Current number one wideout Keenan Allen has been unable to stay healthy the last two seasons and if he happens to go down again, the Chargers won't have to rely on the likes of Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman to carry the load like they did last season. "As I've told you guys, and as I truly believe, I think we're nearly in a window as we were in '06, '09, and that part is pretty exciting".
Volkswagen considering possible Ducati sale
Italian motorcycle brand Ducati may have new owners soon if Volkswagen goes ahead with a possible plan of selling the brand. According to many, the deal reflected Ferdinand Piech's, former VW Chairman, passion for Ducati .
With such a strong defensive class, this seemed like the ideal chance for them to take a good player to improve their secondary or front seven.
In the past, Chargers general manager Tom Telesco has been active in the second round. "We thought Mike was the best available on our board".
A strong defense isn't made up of one star player from the first round- it is 11 good players who work well as a team and with many picks still to come in the 2017 National Football League draft, the Chargers have a chance to draft some solid players to work with Joey Bosa.
Want your voice heard? Considering he's the type of athlete who can turn a small gain into a large one, getting the ball to Williams a half dozen times per game is a must.
