NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Clemson junior WR Mike Williams as his No.4 wideout to watch in College Football.
"Williams has the size and frame that NFL scouts pay close attention to, but what I really like is that Clemson uses him as a big, downfield receiver rather than sticking him with a bunch of dink-and-dunk throws that wouldn't suit his strengths," Zierlein writes. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Williams recorded 57 receptions for a team-high 1,030 yards, with six touchdowns in 2014. Zierlein notes that Clemson's deep-threat wideout had "20 catches of 20-plus yards last year" with "83 percent of his catches" going for first downs over the last two years. Jun 26 - 3:16 PM

Clemson junior WR Mike Williams "gives QB Deshaun Watson a big, physical target with great hands and ball skills on the outside," notes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"Williams caught 57 passes for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns last year, averaging 18.07 yards per catch, and he should have no problem repeating that success if Watson overcomes his injury problems," Brown wrote. Your older brother's Tigers had Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant and now Williams and Artavis Scott are tormenting opponents. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Williams drew comparisons to DeAndre Hopkins when he first stepped onto campus.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Clemson junior WR Mike Williams "has the talent to be one of the top receivers in college football this season."

"While still raw in some areas, most notably his route running, if I was an opposing coach in the ACC, I would be tempted to ask the officials to check Williams' hands for glue because of the acrobatic grabs he has produced on tape, showing tremendous body control and focus. He has the talent to be one of the top receivers in college football this season and a very interesting NFL prospect," Brugler wrote. The Clemson prospect had a solid season as a first-year starter, replacing Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant. Williams lead the Tigers with 1,030 receiving yards on 57 catches and six touchdowns in 2014.

Clemson sophomore WR Mike Williams hauled in seven receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win versus Georgia Southern.

Williams end-of-season stats will look nice, but his consistency wildly vacillates. To be fair, much of that can be pinned on the Tigers' inconsistent quarterback play. Williams, compared by Clemson WR coach Jeff Scott last summer to former first-round pick DeAndre Hopkins, has 45 catches for 859 yards and five touchdowns.

Clemson sophomore WR Mike Williams hauled in eight receptions for 128 yards in Saturday's 17-13 win over Boston College.

Last summer, Clemson receivers coach Jeff Scott compared Williams to former first-round pick DeAndre Hopkins. Williams is finally starting to live up to that hype. In three of the team's past four games, he's exceeded 120 yards receiving. Overall, he's got 30 catches for 671 yards and four scores through seven contests.

Clemson sophomore WR Mike Williams hauled in six receptions for 155 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Saturday's 41-0 romp over North Carolina State.

The super sophomore is really heating up, having six catches and two touchdowns in each of his last two games for 122 and 155 yards, respectively. Overall, he's up to 21 catches for 520 yards and four scores through five contests. Last summer, Clemson receivers coach Jeff Scott compared Williams to former first-round pick DeAndre Hopkins.

Clemson sophomore WR Mike Williams "has the talent to become the go-to receiver" as Sammy Watkins' replacement, according to NFL.com.

Clemson must replace both the No. 4 overall pick Watkins, but also fourth-rounder Martavis Bryant. Williams (6-3, 205) is expected to be Cole Stoudt's main target, while junior Charone Peake (6-2, 205) will likely start on the opposite side. Clemson also has senior Adam Humphries (5-11, 190), a reliable possession target. Last July, Clemson receivers coach Jeff Scott compared Williams to former first-round pick DeAndre Hopkins. "They're definitely similar in their ball skills and their ability to go attack the ball in the air," said Scott at the time. "Both of them are also very good basketball players. Their body styles are different, in that Mike is a little bit taller, whereas Nuk was more of a point guard-type in basketball. But as far as attacking the ball and the ability to use your body to kind of box out, they're very similar."

Clemson receivers coach Jeff Scott compared freshman WR Mike Williams to first-round pick DeAndre Hopkins.

"They're definitely similar in their ball skills and their ability to go attack the ball in the air," said Scott. "Both of them are also very good basketball players. Their body styles are different, in that Mike is a little bit taller, whereas Nuk was more of a point guard-type in basketball. But as far as attacking the ball and the ability to use your body to kind of box out, they're very similar." Clemson needs to find an offensive weapon across from Sammy Watkins, and Williams could emerge thanks to that high-pointing ability.
