Chargers Draft: Was The Mike Williams Pick a Mistake for LA?

Chargers Draft: Was The Mike Williams Pick a Mistake for LA?

"He's a great quarterback and I am looking forward to getting to the facility and start catching balls from him".

The Los Angeles Chargers have drafted wide receiver Mike Williams.

Not only did Williams overcome the injury, he has worked his way back to become the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

American Airlines Group's (AAL) "In-Line" Rating Reaffirmed at Imperial Capital
Following the sale, the director now directly owns 35,077 shares of the company's stock, valued at approximately $1,586,181.94. American Airlines Group Inc . has a beta of 0.94 and the weekly and monthly volatility stands at 2.22% and 2.32% respectively.

Telesco also said the Chargers had discussions about trading down, but made a decision to stay put and take Williams at No. 7.

Rivers will now have a complete arsenal of weapons on the offensive side of the ball with Williams, Keenan Allen, Travis Benjamin, Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman competing for snaps on the outside.

The biggest complaint with this pick would be that of all of the Chargers needs, wide receiver probably doesn't even come close to the multitude of other needs the team has- most specifically on defense.

Andy Murray loses to Dominic Thiem in Barcelona Open semi-finals
Thiem started strong, breaking Murray's first two service games before adding a third break en route to taking the first set. Rafael Nadal also eased into the semi-finals with a 7-6 (7/1) 6-2 win over Hyeon Chung of South Korea.

Williams might be the most polished receiver in the class. Corey Davis gives him a fight for that title, but Davis hasn't gone up against the competition faced in the ACC.

In the past, Chargers general manager Tom Telesco has been active in the second round. DE Malik McDowell and S Budda Baker could be possible that the Chargers make in round two and names like CB Sydney Jones, who may be one of the best corners in this draft whose stock fell due to injury, might be available in round three. Williams will help the Chargers put up points, but this is a team that surrendered the fourth-most points in the National Football League a year ago. Pete Prisco was less impressed with Los Angeles selection of Williams, giving the Chargers a "C-" and saying "I know they need receivers, but I don't think this kid separates well enough".

Want your voice heard? Telesco said Williams ran 4.49 and 4.50 40-yard times on the Chargers team scout's stop watch, so speed is not an issue.

Drug use eclipses alcohol use in fatal crashes for first time
Roadside screenings for drugs that use saliva are being tested, and tests that use breath are being developed, Hedlund said. Furthermore, the records only record drug presence, not drug concentrations that can be compared to blood-alcohol levels.
