As early as it may be in training camp, members of the media can’t help but get excited about second-year WR Mike Williams and how he has looked thus far.

After a rookie season that saw Williams catch just 11 passes for 95 yards, the 2017 seventh-overall selection has looked like a whole new player with his lingering injuries in the rear-view mirror.

Following Day 2’s practice, Ricky Henne over at Chargers.com listed an acrobatic catch from Williams as one of the most impressive plays of the day:

Mike Williams high-pointed the ball on a back shoulder throw, using his strong hands to pluck it out of the air as he shielded it away from the cornerback.”

At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Williams has all the necessary tools to be a bully against defensive backs and the tenacity to win those 50-50 balls. It looks like he is finally showing the coaching staff what he is capable of at full health.

Again, take the early hype with a grain of salt, but something seems a little bit different about the 2018 edition of Mike Williams.
