After posting more than 1,000 yards receiving in 2015, Williams will have to make an NFL roster the hard way.

After not being selected in the 2016 NFL Draft, former WSU wide receiver Dom Williams will now be trying to make it as a professional by going the undrafted free agent route, reportedly signing with the San Diego Chargersaccording to the Seattle Times' Stefanie Loh.

Williams' most marketable attribute is his speed, which allows him to get past unsuspecting defenders. But his height (6-foot-2) and ability to track balls coming his way down the sideline make him a tough cover for corners, who often are helpless to keep him from using his long arms to haul in deep passes.

Williams posted 75 catches for 1,040 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015, and in his four-year career, he totaled 192 passes for 2,889 yards and 30 touchdowns.

Williams is the third Cougar wide receiver to join the NFL ranks in four years, as the Cleveland Browns selected Vince Mayle in the fourth round of last year's draft, and Marquess Wilson was selected in the seventh round in 2013.
