Chargers grab Clemson WR Mike Williams with 1st pick in LA

The Los Angeles Chargers knew they needed to get Philip Rivers more help and that is exactly what they did by adding Williams.

Here's what you need to know about Williams.

While at Clemson, Williams suffered a scary injury to his neck/back area that caused him to miss the entire 2015 season.

D'Onta Foreman: Texans do not think Foreman needs surgery
His girlfriend is due to give birth to the couple's next child on September 16 - the one-year anniversary of D'Onta Jr.'s birth. D'Onta Jr. died on November 5, the same day his father rushed for 341 yards and three touchdowns against Texas Tech.

Those skills were especially on display during the national championship game against Alabama, when he battled the Tide's corners all night and posted eight catches - including the fantastic one below - for 94 yards and a touchdown. "He'll have to be coached up with his routes and releases, but he has the talent to become a big safety blanket for a young quarterback". Outside of that, Williams has a clean bill of health. 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.

"Jerry Rice didn't run a fast time", said Williams. Just being able to have him as a weapon is a big factor and he's a guy that you can throw it up in that range and he's going to come down with it.

Some question whether Williams has the speed to translate to the NFL. His explosiveness is likely lacking after running just under the 4.6-second range at the Clemson pro day, but Williams could lead this team in receiving touchdowns even if he's only third or so in line for targets.

France rejects extradition to Serbia for ex-Kosovo PM Haradinaj
His government had previously said it may abolish its extradition treaty with France if he was not handed over. Kosovo's government also hailed Haradinaj's release, calling the French court decision "a confirmation that".

Williams returned to the Tigers for his senior season to help Clemson capture their first national championship since 1981. Williams took plenty away from their time together.

"That's why I don't think - I would've handled it OK - but it wouldn't have been great", he said. "We put in a lot of work, and we liked him". With Keenan, I'm excited to have him on the other side of me as someone who can win (one-on-one).
