2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0: First-Round Predictions for All 32 Picks

6 of 34

5. player. 35. . Wide Receiver. Clemson. Mike Williams

The Tennessee Titans have the opportunity to take one of the best wide receivers in this draft. Mike Williams stood out after having a fantastic QB in Deshaun Watson display his skills. Williams with his 6-3″ 220-pound body build makes him the perfect downfield weapon. He will be a match-up nightmare for any defensive back.

His speed will make defenses stay true. Safeties won’t be able to cheat up towards the line or Williams will blow right past them. He’s able to make you have to down the field and away from the run.

What makes Williams such a smart player is that even with his size, he can still track down a pass and catch it with his hands rather than his body. Not to mention that his route running is crisp and dangerous. He knows how to position his body to make almost any catch in his area.

He’s also a pure football player. He’s not scared to lay out for a catch or even make a catch knowing a hit is coming. His size also helps him with blocking which is done with great technique. Williams

Williams is a solid top WR in this draft with all the attributes needed to strive in the NFL.

(Note from the editor: With the fifth pick in the 2017 draft, the Titans have an opportunity to take their team to a whole new level by drafting Williams. Marcus Mariota will finally have a top tier receiver to depend on in 2017.)
