Where Williams is now.
At one point, the Chargers expected Williams to miss his entire rookie season due to a herniated disc, so the fact that he played in 10 games and caught 11 passes means he exceeded expectations. Things got better in 2018, as Williams played in all 16 games and had 10 touchdown receptions despite only catching 43 passes.
With Keenan Allen around, the Chargers don’t need Williams to be their no. 1 receiver, which takes some of the pressure off him. Since he missed most of his rookie season, his development is almost a year behind, so he’s not exactly a bust, even if he still has a lot to prove as a former top-10 pick.
