Recent News analyst Lance Zierlein compares Clemson senior WR Mike Williams to ex-Giants star WR Plaxico Burress.
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Williams is slightly smaller than the 6-foot-5, 231-pound Burress coming out of college, but he plays the same physical game and may be able to run a little better than the high 4.5-second range that Burress logged. "What Burress lacked in speed, he made up for with his ability to pluck the ball out of the air," Zierlein wrote. "Burress was mostly a two-level wide receiver and that should end up being the case with Williams as well. Additional play strength was a need for both guys, as prospects, but their ability to become scary red-zone factors is yet another similarity between the two wideouts." Dec 2 - 12:44 PM

Clemson HC Dabo Swinney said that he believes senior WR Mike Williams is a more complete receiver than former Tiger wideouts Sammy Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins.

"[Williams] can sink his hips, he's got [Hopkins'] ball skills. He's incredibly intelligent. He's passionate about the ball, about his technique, and the discipline of route-running," Swinney said, "like Sammy was. He's a load. He's going to be a great, great, great pro." In 12 regular-season games this year, the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder has worked to a 79-1114-10 receiving line. He is expected to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft, presumably after Clemson has completed its bowl assignment, be that Playoff or otherwise.

Clemson senior WR Mike Williams caught six passes for 100 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's demolition of South Carolina.

Williams made scoring grabs of 34 and 19 yards in the first quarter, then logged one final touchdown with a 16-yard grab in the closing seconds of the first half. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound senior has been hot of late, registering at least 100 yards receiving in three of his last four games. For the campaign as a whole, Williams has caught 79 passes for 1,114 yards and 10 touchdowns over the course of 12 games played.
Nov 26 - 11:17 PM

Clemson senior WR Mike Williams posted six receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over Wake Forest.

In his return to the field, Williams has turned in his best season yet. He's up to a 73-1,014-7 line. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder, who lost last season to a neck injury, caught 57 passes for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns in 2014. Clemson gets South Carolina on Saturday.
Nov 21 - 5:49 PM

Clemson senior WR Mike Williams caught 15 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 43-42 loss to Pitt.

With the fantasy playoffs kicking off in many formats this week, owners of Pitt and Clemson entities had themselves field days. Among the statistical stars in the game, Williams, Deshaun Watson (580 yards passing, three touchdowns) and Wayne Gallman (weirdo game of 36 yards rushing and three touchdowns) on Clemson's side of the ledger and Nathan Peterman (five touchdown passes), Scott Orndoff (9-128-2) and James Conner (132 yards rushing, two touchdowns) on Pitt's side. For his part, the 6-foot-5, 202-pound Williams has been a man aflame of late, having caught 40 passes for 524 yards and three touchdowns over his last four games.
Nov 12 - 8:07 PM

Clemson senior WR Mike Williams had six catches for 106 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 54-0 win over Syracuse.

That's more like it. This is only Williams' second 100-yard game since the opener, but there's very real reason for optimism here because they both occurred in the last three games. In fact, he's posted a cumulative 25-322-2 line the last three times out.
Nov 5 - 7:07 PM

A says Clemson redshirt junior WR Mike Williams is the best prospect in the Clemson-Florida State game on Saturday night.

"I love Mike Williams," he said. "He's long, athletic and smooth. He has outstanding body control. He can run every route and he's capable of playing inside or outside." The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Williams boasts a 39-578-4 line on the year.
Oct 28 - 7:42 PM

Clemson redshirt junior WR Mike Williams caught 12 passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in the school's 24-17 overtime win over NC State.

Williams dealt with a hamstring injury leading up to this game, but his performance was vintage Williams: winning at the catch point. He did lose a fumble while fighting for extra yards, but the rest of his game compensated for that one negative moment. Williams is one of the nation's best offensive weapons.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney expects redshirt junior WR Mike Williams (hamstring) to play Saturday versus North Carolina State.

Not only that, but Hunter Renfrow is expected to take the field against the 4-1 Wolfpack as well. "I expect Mike (Williams) to play," Swinney said. "I think (Hunter) Renfrow will hopefully get some time this week. I expect both of those guys to play. Jalen (Williams), I expect him to play. Austin (Bryant), all of those guys should play this week." Williams tweaked his upper hamstring against Boston College. He's posted 27 catches for 432 yards and three touchdowns on the season.

Clemson redshirt junior WR Mike Williams will be held out of practice on Monday after tweaking his upper hamstring against Boston College.

Williams will be evaluated on Tuesday. The star receiver missed all of 2015 after breaking a bone in his neck, but returned this season and has looked outstanding. Williams has 27 catches for 432 yards and three touchdowns on the season. His body control to adjust for targets is some of the best in college football.

ESPN's Todd McShay ranks Clemson senior WR Mike William as the No. 14 overall draft-eligible prospect.

"Williams has again proved to be a terrific deep-ball threat," McShay wrote. The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Williams has averaged about 17 yards per catch over his career.

Clemson senior WR Mike Williams had only two catches for 24 yards in Saturday's 30-24 win over Troy.

Deshaun Watson and Williams just couldn't seem to get on the same page in this one, which is a real credit to the Troy defense after Williams had his way with Auburn. Watson missed Williams on two deep routes and the pair appeared to have communication issues. Hopefully that gets sorted out next week, because the first-round talents are unstoppable when they're clicking.
Sep 10 - 5:01 PM

Clemson senior WR Mike Williams caught nine passes for 174 yards in Saturday's 19-13 win over Auburn.

Williams infamously suffered a season-ending neck injury in the opener a year ago. This time around it was a far happier affair for the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder. He averaged 19.3 yards per reception and while he did not find the end zone in the win, that should be of no concern. That Williams is back playing football at all -- and doing it awesomely -- is nice for fantasy owners and all humans with hearts.
Sep 4 - 1:06 AM

Clemson receivers coach Jeff Scott believes senior WR Mike Williams can be every bit as good as DeAndre Hopkins, Martavis Bryant and Sammy Watkins.

"I think he has potential to be as good as any guy that we've had here. He definitely has potential to be in that conversation," Scott said. "He's made some plays in practice that remind us of some of those guys whenever they were here. There's no doubt we see him in that same light." The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder was lost for the season with a neck injury in last season's opener. In 2014, he caught 57 passes for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns. Stud Clemson CB Cordrea Tankersley had this assessment about covering Williams in practice: "(It's) the hardest thing ever. You can have the best technique down, get the best jam on him, and he'll still make that catch. None of it matters."
Aug 16 - 6:14 PM

Clemson senior WR Mike Williams had Pro Football Focus' No. 12 grade among wide receivers in 2014.

Of Williams' 18.1 yards per reception in 2014, 7.6 came after the catch. He piled up 11 forced missed tackles on 57 receptions. "A healthy Williams steps right back in as the top playmaker for Clemson," Steve Palazzolo wrote. PFF lists Williams as the No. 58 player in college football.
