    He's an athletic guy, no doubt about that, but he has pretty poor hands and sucks as a route runner. Hi hype, was as a late day three pick. He was a volume receiver.

    My point was people get this idea in their head and they forget there is a reason the guy dropped out of the first 7 rounds...there were 28 WRs drafted and he was seen as below all of them.

    I see reasons for optimism, but I agree. He’s not some elite tier receiver that fell through the cracks and we lucked in to.

    Wouldn’t be shocked to see him make the team, I believe some may be sipping the juice jusssst a little much w/ this guy

    If he does turn into a productive starting wide out, we all win

    I respect your opinion and I assume you've watched a lot of tape on this dude but
    in this case I have seen zero evidence to support your claim "poor hands" and
    "sucks as a route runner."

    I think his pro day more than anything dropped him -- obviously compounded by
    his (supposed) "character issues." From my perspective -- I could care less what his
    40 time vertical eyeball twitch factor is -- I see a kid that makes plays and via his
    interviews I think he gets "it" at this point in his life.

    Beyond that -- I'm giving myself the luxury of being totally optimistic about the kids
    upside and what he can bring to the field.

    Everybody here gets it -- he wasn't drafted and there are reasons for that -- however
    that fact does NOT preclude the possibility he will demonstrate some of the (IMO) impressive
    attributes he showed in his 1 season to shine...

    I think the kid is hungry. And I think he's out to prove a big sharp jagged point!

    Perhaps it will prove laughable but I'm as excited about his potential as I am for any
    player we drafted.

    Have fun!

    Drink more tequila!

    Brandon London was a guy that I remember.

    Also, Isaiah Ford was expected to push for playing time last year.

    That's a biiiiiiig stretch.

    He averaged 667 yards per season during his time in Miami.

    Awful is Leonte Carroo, who was drafted in the mid rounds and barely saw the field.

    Bess as a UDFA, to turn into a receiver that was reliable in the slot was certainly not awful.

    This dude did not want to talk to the media and I don't really blame him.

    I assume he knows what he has to do to make this team. He's lost a lot of money already based on mistakes he made in college. Hopefully he has someone in his ear that can offer some guidance and keep him on a path that's both beneficial for himself and the team.

    Waste of a roster spot. This board has a problem hyping up players who aren't worth the time of day. Never changed the outcome of the team during a game. Never was a fan.

    You don't get 700 and 800 yards in a season by accident and by being a waste of a roster spot

    FSU is referring to his domestic violence. He pleaded guilty to pushing a woman several times

    I think awsi is onto something with the 5 star athlete stuff. Preston was a 5 star recruit out of high school. The kid has undeniable talent

    Title should read, "Preston Williams is 'just workin'.'"

    was a 4* on most.

    I'm not saying he's an untalented bum, but talent on takes you so far.

    I don’t agree with your evaluation... this was a Tennessee receiver that only ended up at Colorado ST due to off-field reasons... he tore it up last year against some big time opposition... you are grossly underestimating his ability.
