The Dallas Cowboys draft picks so far have had many fans scratching their heads. Even though I liked the previous pick of tight end Gavin Escobar, we still have a need for safety and help on the offensive line. Dallas continues to baffle fans with the 74th pick the Dallas Cowboys selected wide receiver Terrance Williams from Baylor University.
Williams adds to the staple of wide receivers which already include Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley, just to name a few. Williams will add reliability with his hands and he is a good route runner. He is durable, polished, and well-rounded receiver.
Williams does not possess great speed. He is not overly fast or big, and will not be very physical with defensive backs. Williams also lacks run blocking skills. But he can make the tough receptions and has enough quickness to get some separation. Williams will never be a number one receiver, but he could be a solid number two. My guess is that the Cowboys are looking for a Kevin Ogletree replacement.
Williams caught passes from Heisman Trophy Winner Robert Griffin III and produced some crazy numbers. Hes caught 59 passes for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns. His senior year, he caught 97 passes for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Again, Dallas picked a good athlete but they continue to fall short of meeting the team’s true needs.
