The San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders will host a pre-draft visit this week with Colorado State wide receiver Preston Williams, according to a report from NFL Draft Diamonds.

Williams has 96 receptions for 1,345 yards with 14 touchdowns for the Rams this past season. He sat out the 2017 season due to NCAA rules after transferring from Tennessee.

"I'm the best receiver in the class, hands down," Williams recently said via the Denver Post. "Just press play."

The league revoked Preston's invite to the NFL Scouting Combine in February due to 2017 misdemeanor charges of tampering and harassment for allegedly being involved in a domestic dispute.

"I'm not that type of person," Williams said. "Everything is in the past that happened. It won't happen again."

Lance Zierlein of, who compares Williams to Martavis Bryant, wrote the following about Williams within his scouting report:

"Tennessee transfer who put on a show in his single season at Colorado State under the tutelage of position coach and former NFL receiver Alvis Whitted. Williams was able to run by cornerbacks on tape, but the speed and explosion totals were disappointing for his pro day. Williams played in a pro-style passing attack and used his size and ball skills to attack secondaries successfully on all three levels. His character flags will likely cause him to drop, but there is talent to cultivate if he can accept coaching and focus on football."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst wrote the following about Williams within his scouting report:

"A transfer from Tennessee, Williams turned in a terrific campaign in 2018 and looked like a dominant, game-controlling wideout at times. He possesses great physical skills, but he's unpolished in almost every area of his game and will need a lot of work before he's NFL-ready."

Brad Kelly of The Draft Network wrote the following about Williams within his scouting report:

"RED FLAGS - Torn ACL while at Tennessee. Served a suspension for an off-season misdemeanor assault charge. Transferred from Tennessee to Colorado State, sitting out the 2017 season."
