Roy ranks himself 6th or 7th

Lions WR Roy Williams visited with the media in a conference call this morning. The Texas product, who is coming off a 204-yard, nine-catch outing at Philadelphia, has a TD catch in his last five consecutive games dating back to the Bears-26-21 victory at Ford Field last Dec. 24.

Williams went to the Pro Bowl last season after posting 82 catches for 1,310 yards, and was asked if he's the best in the league.

"No, by no means," Williams said. "I would love to be the best receiver in this league but I still have a long way to go. I’m probably six or seven. There’s probably five to six more wide receivers that I would put in front of me."

He was asked who is ahead of him.

"I would say Steve Smith, Mavin Harrison, Chad Johnson, you gotta go with T.O. and ... maybe Andre Johnson. Andre Johnson is a big, physical guy. And then that’s where me and [Larry] Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Donald Driver, we’re all in that same little boat right there."

In five career games vs. the Bears, Williams has 24 catches and two touchdowns. With the Bears expected to be without starting CB's Nathan Vasher and Charles Tillman, Williams will be the No. 1 receiver in the league this week to a battered defense.
