Excellent time for him

Guy is a stud...

he'll be a great NFL WR. Have watched him for years in the ACC. But he won't be on the Giants radar.
That should make him a Titan..

He reminds me alot of AJ Green

He reminds me of Michael Thomas from last year

And that's the #1 guy I wanted in the second round

How nice would that have been.
I wonder how represented the Giants were

at Clemson Pro day,
Not on Giants Radar?

Unless there's something about him we don't know about. Reese would jump over his mother to draft him if he was there at 23
Don't remember the source offhand  
GiantsLaw : 3/16/2017 11:52 am : link
but heard on some show recently that Clemson is pretty well-known to have a "fast track." I have no idea if that's accurate, just throwing it out there into the ether.
So really somewhere

Between 4.60 & 4.65.

Artavis Scott ran the same thing as Williams did today. He ran a 4.61 at the combine. So there times are probably very similar.

With all the talent there? I wouldn't be shocked if both Reese and Ross were there with a contingent of scouts.
Don't see the AJ Green  
ryanmkeane : 3/16/2017 1:13 pm : link
comparison at all...Green was a fluid route runner and extremely athletic. Williams is more of a physical go up and get the ball type, and can win the 1 on 1 battle.

Which is why the OL sucks. The LBs are utterly average at best and TE is thin thin thin. All he does is draft WRs high. Every year. Year after year.
I'm guessing

this is close to what he needed to run. 4.60 isn't a disaster, but I don't know if he's a top 10 pick this year.

I don't think we'd take him. Other surer things at need positions with similar talent levels.

The comp for Mike Williams  
RAIN : 3/16/2017 1:48 pm : link
would be a power receiver, like Micheal Irvin or Plaxico. He doesn't get much separation with speed, but with power. He rag dolls db's at times.
I'd run that card to the podium if he's there at 23  
illmatic : 3/16/2017 4:52 pm : link
somehow. Marshall will only be on the team for a year or two. Plus it's depth for when the inevitable injuries happen. Williams is going to be very good. He'd work well with Eli. It would be another Eli to Plax kind of connection.
While I think he's better this reminds me  
LauderdaleMatty : 3/16/2017 8:40 pm : link
Of last year where more than. A few people insisted Treadwell should be the pick last year. No thanks. There will be better players at positions of greater need 23. Doesn't mean he's not going to be a good pro. But w the needs at TE, LB, and OL there almost certainly be a guy there just as good at those positions. Heck I'd take a CB before a WR w DRCs age and history of being banged up all the time

WRs are a dime a dozen
Mike Williams was always going to go in the Top 15 imo...  
Torrag : 3/17/2017 1:05 am : link I'll be surprised if he makes it out of the Top 10.
BC Eagles94 : 3/17/2017 11:41 am : link
Just meant that he isn't on our radar, due to no way he is making it to pick #23. And no way Reese would be trading up in the first round for another WR. Which may be our most solidified position on the roster now.

On talent alone, of course Giants would be interested.
