The Athletic's Dane Brugler reports that Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams will be off draft boards due to character.
Brugler continues to call Williams (6'4/210) a "big-time talent" and a potential steal if he matures around NFL teammates. At Colorado State, Williams posted a 96-1,345-14 receiving line on a ton of targets as the clear best offensive weapon on the team. Williams was certainly productive, but his 7.7 yards per target will near the bottom among Day 2 and Day 3 wide receiver prospects. The prospect will be a debated player, but Williams needs to ace NFL interviews to secure a draft selection. Fri, Dec 28, 2018 07:29:00 PM

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams has announced that he will enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

Williams (6'4/210) was highly productive in his lone season at Colorado State, posting a receiving line of 96-1,345-14. For his efforts the Tennessee transfer earned first team All-Mountain West honors, and now he'll turn his attention to the next level. The Draft Network cited Williams' physical tools in its breakdown, but noted that he is "not an especially polished route-runner." That being said he is considered to be one of the better draft-eligible wideouts heading into the 2019 draft.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams rolled up 12 receptions for 248 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's 27-19 road loss against Air Force.

Williams said after the game that he hasn't made a decision on whether or not he'll return to Colorado State or declare for the 2019 NFL Draft. He is expected to discuss the decision with his family in the next week before announcing his decision. He is already considered one of the top prospects at the wide receiver position if he were to announce his intentions to play on Sundays. He finished his junior season with 96 grabs, 1,345 yards and 14 touchdowns in 12 games.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams recorded six receptions, 77 yards, and two touchdowns in Saturday's 29-24 loss to Utah State.

Williams nearly had a third score on a failed hail mary as time expired. He caught the ball in the end zone but was called for illegal touching as he barely stepped out of bounds 15 yards into the route. Both of his touchdowns came in the fourth quarter, the first from nine yards away and the second from 17. He now has 1097 yards and 11 touchdowns on 84 receptions this season. He'll look to add to his gaudy season stats next week against Air Force.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams posted team highs with seven receptions, 69 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 49-10 loss at Nevada.

The Rams got drummed by the Wolf Pack in Reno, but Williams still had a pretty decent showing. He has racked up seven or more reception in four straight outings while totaling 39 receptions, 509 yards with five touchdowns across the past five contests. The All-America and Biletnikoff Award candidate has nine TDs this season, and he went over 1,000 receiving yards for the season with two games left on the schedule. Next up is a home game against Utah State before a Thanksgiving road test at Air Force.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams snared 10 passes for 126 yards in a 34-21 loss to Wyoming on Friday.

Once again, Williams looked like the best player on the field for the Rams, and if we're being honest, the best player on the field period. He didn't score, but he showed off his impressive route-running and hands, and he set up a pair of rushing scores for the Rams. It just wasn't enough. Williams will go again when Colorado State faces Nevada on November 10.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams snagged nine receptions for 154 yards and a touchdown in a 56-28 loss to Boise State on Friday.

The Rams defense was awful, and the quarterback play by K.J. Carta-Samuels left a lot to be desired. Williams, on the other hand, was brilliant. Again. The former Tennessee wideout has scored eight touchdowns on the year, and is now at 825 yards receiving. You can't help but be impressed with what Williams has done. He should be good again next Friday against Wyoming.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams caught nine passes for 93 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 20-18 win over New Mexico.

Williams (6'4/210) found his way into the end zone on a five-yard touchdown catch just over a minute into the game. The former Tennessee wideout has been as advertised this season and owns a 52-671-7 receiving line through seven games played. He's caught at least nine passes in four games this year. Williams will try to loosen up Boise State's secondary next weekend.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams racked up four receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-30 win at San Jose State.

Williams found the end zone twice, while his partner in crime Warren Jackson also scored a pair of touchdowns, as the Colorado State offense erupted for a season-high 42 points against the defensively-challenged San Jose Spartans. The Rams offense will look to keep up the good work against Mountain West foe New Mexico next Saturday.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams took part in warmups ahead of Saturday's game against Illinois State.

Williams, who was listed a probable earlier in the week due to an undisclosed injury, has accounted for at least 100 receiving yards in three of Colorado State's four games this season. In CSU's Sept. 15 loss at Florida the redshirt junior caught nine passes for 106 yards, and for the season he's caught 36 passes for 497 yards and four touchdowns.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams (undisclosed) is "probably probable" for Saturday's game against Illinois State.

CSU HC Mike Bobo coming in with the inventive language, here. It's not known what injury Williams might be dealing with, but it would seem to be relatively minor. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound redshirt junior has registered at least 100 yards receiving in three of four games this season and owns a 36-497-4 receiving line on the whole. He ranks as the seventh-leading receiver in the FBS on the basis of per-game average.

ESPN's Phil Steele lists Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams as one of the transfers making an immediate impact in 2018.

The transfer attention naturally goes to the quarterbacks, and LSU's Joe Burrow and Michigan's Shea Patterson have been the big names and have made an impact over the first three weeks. Williams, however, has been as good as anyone, if not better. He has 36 catches for 497 yards and six touchdowns, and he's looked good doing it. Give some credit to K.J. Carta-Samuels, but Williams (6'4/210) has star potential, even in the Mountain West Conference.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams caught nine passes for 106 yards in Saturday's 48-10 loss to Florida.

This very well could be Williams' toughest matchup of the year, but it didn't stop him from once again surpassing 100 receiving yards. Through four games, Williams has 36 receptions, 497 yards and six touchdowns. Quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels and the Rams offense can sling the football around at a decent clip, so we should expect Williams to constantly put up large numbers. Nothing will be different next week against Illinois State at home.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams caught 12 passes for 154 yards and two scores in a 34-27 victory over Arkansas on Saturday.

Williams was everywhere on Saturday, as he has been for most of the season. He picked up a four-yard score in the third quarter to make it 27-17, and a quarter later he connected with KJ Carta Samuels for his second score from 10 yards out to make it 27-24. He already has 27 receptions in his first three games, and he's scored four touchdowns in that time frame. A tough match-up comes next week against Florida next Saturday.

Colorado State redshirt junior WR Preston Williams caught nine passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 43-34 loss to Hawaii.

Williams (6'4/210) was a major reason Carta-Samuels broke the Colorado State single game passing yards record. Williams fought for extra yardage and was able to get beyond the secondary on multiple plays, including on a 69-yard touchdown pass. Williams, who was suspended from the team for much of the offseason, looked like the Rams best offensive weapon for Carta-Samuels. With a lot of production left with Michael Gallup's production, Williams and WR Olabisi Johnson could be in for big seasons.
