Summary

Williams entered the league in 2015 as an undrafted free agent despite elite testing numbers (4.43 speed at 6'3, 204 pounds) in large part due to the level of competition he faced at tiny Western Oregon. He burst onto the scene in his second NFL season, catching 69 passes for 1,059 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2016. His production slipped in both 2017 (728 receiving yards) and 2018 (653 receiving yards) as he fell behind Mike Williams on the depth chart and Keenan Allen returned to health. While he didn't get enough volume to put up big numbers, Williams was extremely efficient with the targets he got. He averaged more than 10 yards per target in both 2017 and 2018 due to a solid catch rate and 16.4 yards per catch average. His big play ability made Williams a hot commodity on the free agent market this offseason. The Raiders signed him to a 4-year deal worth more than $44M dollars. There is no question what role Williams will play in Oakland's offense. He will be the #2 wide receiver behind Antonio Brown. While Brown could dominate targets to some extent, the Raiders lack of depth and talent behind their top two pass catchers could still allow Williams to see 90+ targets, which makes him an intriguing upside pick in the mid-rounds.
