Can Mike Williams dwarf his 2014 numbers this fall?

Clemson fielded one of the most potent air attacks in the ACC last season. Led by All-American quarterback Deshaun Watson and a talented group of pass-catchers, the Tigers averaged 8.3 yards per pass attempt (second in the ACC) on their way to a 14-1 finish.

This year, the passing game could be even more dangerous. The biggest reason: the return of junior wideout Mike Williams.

A broken neck kept Williams sidelined for all but three minutes and 53 seconds of the 2015 campaign. The 6-4, 220-pound wideout sustained the injury while colliding head-first with the padding of the goal post after a four-yard touchdown grab against Wofford.

Williams has since made a full recovery and will be starting this fall. Should he and Watson stay healthy, the potential is there for them to become the best quarterback-receiver tandem in the conference.

They weren’t all that far off in 2014.
