Chargers Get Playmaker WR Mike Williams with 7th Pick in 2017 NFL Draft

The Chargers wanted a playmaker with their first draft choice after their move to Los Angeles, and feel like they got that on Thursday with the pick of Clemson receiver Mike Williams.

The 6-foot-3 Williams won the national title last season, and the Chargers passed over a handful of elite defensive prospects to add a big-play target for Philip Rivers with the seventh overall selection.

The Chargers have been looking for a dominant receiver since Vincent Jackson left for Tampa Bay in 2012. Their top pass-catcher last season in San Diego was 6-foot-4 Tyrell Williams, who could team with his new teammates to provide an imposing size matchup for any defense.

Williams is the second receiver taken in the first seven picks.
