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.
