Mike Williams ran routes at Clemson’s pro day, and scouts were impressed.
Deshaun Watson and Mike Williams highlighted Clemson’s pro day on Thursday. Williams ran routes for Watson, and the two connected like it was a regular season game.
Williams impressed scouts with his ability and route running during the pro day. One NFL scout at the pro day compared Williams to a receiver taken in last year’s Draft — Michael Thomas of Ohio State.
Scout at the Clemson pro day just text me that Mike Williams is another Michael Thomas. (That's a compliment)

The New Orleans Saints drafted Thomas in the middle of the second round, yet the rookie dominated in his first season in the big leagues. Williams is likely to be drafted in the first round.
