Potential top-15 pick Mike Williams declares for the 2017 NFL Draft
Williams was Clemson's top wideout during the Tigers' national championship season
Arguably the top NFL prospect on Clemson's national championship-winning team has officially declared for the upcoming draft.
On his Twitter account Wednesday, receiver Mike Williams announced he would skip the 2017 season and move on to the pros.
As a redshirt junior, Williams had one more season of eligibility, but it was hard to see him using it. Williams caught 98 passes for 1,361 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2016. At 6-feet-3 and 225 pounds, Williams has the prototypical big body of a No. 1 wideout in the NFL.
CBS Sports' Rob Rang gave Williams a top grade for his performance in the 35-31 national championship win over Alabama.
Demonstrating the body control, timing and strength to project as a No. 1 target in the NFL, Williams was the most impressive NFL prospect in the title game, hauling in eight passes for 94 yards and a touchdown. To crack the top 10 this spring Williams will have to run well but his size and ability to win on contested passes projects very well to the next level.
Additionally, CBS Sports projects Williams as a top-15 pick and the first wideout off the board.
