Mike Williams won’t run 40 at combine
- Updated: March 3, 2017
For scouts who were waiting for Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams to run the 40-yard dash so they could decide if he was good at football, they’ll have to wait a little longer.
Williams said he won’t be participating in the 40 at this week’s NFL Combine.
“Long season,” Williams said, via ESPN.com. “[I] haven’t had much time to prepare for it, so I’m going to take this week and next week to prepare for it and run it at my pro day. … You only run the 40 once, ever, in your life. You always be running routes. I was just focusing on what I’m going to be doing for a long time.”
He’ll run at his pro day, but who cares? Watch him on the football field. He’s a stud and probably a top-ten pick.
