Leonard Williams believes he should be the top overall pick in Thursday's draft.

Williams is rated by RealGM's Jeff Risdon as the top overall prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft.

"I respect his confidence," Williams said Wednesday when asked about comments from Dante Fowler thinking he is the best defensive player in the draft. "I feel like every player is going to have to have that type of confidence to do well at the next level, but at the same time I feel like I'm the best defensive player."

Williams was asked if he feels like the best player in the draft.

"Yeah, I feel like I should be taken No. 1," he said with a smile.

Williams has been linked to the Tennessee Titans at No. 2.

"I love the D-line coach (Giff Smith), we have a pretty good connection," he said when asked about the Titans. "The defensive scheme they showed me, I feel like I'd fit in pretty well. With (defensive lineman) Jurrell Casey being from USC, I feel like he would be a good mentor for me."
