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

I think that solidified Mike Williams.

Although wide receiver wasn't their biggest area of need going into the draft, bringing Williams to Los Angeles is by no means a bad move.

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

Going into the draft, there was plenty of speculation that the Los Angeles Chargers would use their first overall selection in the 2017 National Football League draft on the defensive side of the ball. Steven Ruiz gave the Chargers a B+ for picking Williams, calling him a receiver who will "dominate at the catch point".

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. I think you look at him as a player who is going to work hard.

With such a strong defensive class, this seemed like the flawless chance for them to take a good player to improve their secondary or front seven.

Wide receiver wasn't an area that struck many as one to be addressed in the first round.

In the past, Chargers general manager Tom Telesco has been active in the second round.

"I think it's a good pick for the San Diego Chargers, but I also look at Mike Williams as a high-jumping rebounder", Steve Smith said on NFL Network.

"Mike is you know our relationship is very very tough, it's very strong and we're very close especially this past year", Watson said at the NFL Scouting Combine. Bosa was named the 2016 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

The 2017-18 season is looking good after the first round of this Chargers draft. 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.
