The Tennessee Titans are back on the clock again. After selecting safety Jamal Adams earlier in the draft, interim general manager Lead Hunter is back on the clock. With the 18th pick in the Pride Of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Titans select wide receiver Mike Williams out of Clemson.

So I helped the secondary with the fifth pick overall picking Safety Jamal Adams and have been setting up a list of possible CBs, WRs and TEs that I would like to draft with the 18th pick. I have to say it was a pleasant surprise to see that Clemson WR Mike Williams was still on the board. I couldn't get the email to Jeremy typed soon enough. If there was a position I wanted to fill with a future elite player, WR was the position and Mike Williams is the perfect player to fill it.

Clemson had a lot of depth in the receiver position and Williams still managed to make 20 catches for 316 yards and three touchdowns as a true freshman. In his sophomore year, he became the No. 1 receiver and led all receivers with 1,030 yards, earning him Third Team All-ACC Honors. In 2015, as a junior, Williams injured his neck 12 plays into the season causing him to redshirt the year. After recovering he returned in 2016 as a junior and led the ACC with 98 catches for 1361 yards and 11 touchdowns earning First Team All-ACC Honors. He is a big physical receiver at 6-foot-4 and 218 pounds, and uses his size to win jump balls more often than not. CBS Sports says he is a combination of A.J. Green and Michael Floyd while Walter Football compares him to Mike Evans. If all his medical issues from the neck check out, Mike Williams will be a much welcome target for Marcus Mariota.
