With their extra third round pick they got from the trade with the San Fransisco 49ers, the Cowboys were ecstatic about selecting Williams here. Dallas fans…not so much. Again, the Cowboys had plenty of pressing needs and with Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Dwayne Harris returning, receiver wasn’t one of them. Still, Williams was the 2012 NCAA leader in receiving yards. And he has a receiver’s frame at 6’2, but he ran a pedestrian 4.52 forty time at the NFL Scouting Combine which accounts for his drop in the draft.

After a horrible NFL debut, where he dropped two passes and ran a bad route that ended up being Tony Romo’s only interception of the game, Williams bounced back in Week Two with three catches for 28 yards. Last week, he didn’t even register a single reception and didn’t need to because of the Cowboys successful running game. This weekend against the San Diego Chargers, Williams will be a starter for the first time to fill-in for the injured Miles Austin.

Grade so far: C-

The Cowboys were in love with this pick when they first drafted Williams. I think the bloom has fallen off of the rose a bit now that they see how slowly the rookie is acclimating the the NFL. Unfortunately, injuries might press him into the starting line-up prematurely. For better or for worse, the Cowboys need him to play well now.
