According to OverTheCap.com, Williams will receive a four-year contract worth $19,750,056, which includes a signing bonus of $12,503,676. The contract also has a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2020.
Williams, 22, was considered to be the top wide receiver prospect in this year’s draft class for much of the draft process, but it turned out that Corey Davis was the first receiver to come off the board. Even so, he lands in a good situation with a proven quarterback and should be able to step in and be a day-one contributor for the Chargers.
During his college career at Clemson, Williams caught 177 passes for 2,727 yards receiving (15.4 YPR) and 21 touchdowns over the course of 38 games.
