Cowboys selected Baylor WR Terrance Williams with the No. 74 overall pick.
Williams (6-2, 208) succeeded Kendall Wright as Baylor's No. 1 receiver as a senior, catching 97 passes for 1,832 yards (18.9 YPR) and 12 scores. Despite a pedestrian 4.52 forty time, Williams is very much a vertical stretcher. The pre-draft concerns among NFL scouts were that Williams lacks quick-twitch explosiveness, and is a one-trick pony with stiff hips and little or no physical element to his game. He'll get a chance to prove them wrong in Dallas' vertically-minded attack. An aging and increasingly injury prone Miles Austin will be on the spot this season. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 09:19:00 PM

Date:'s Gil Brandt considers Baylor WR Terrance Williams the 37th best prospect in the 2013 draft.

After discussing Williams' pro day, Brandt described the receiver as "a really good looking athlete and is a likely second-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft." We aren't so certain that Williams will draw a top-64 pick, since he is a bit of a one trick pony at this point, specializing in vertical routes.

A lot of teams have third-round grades on Baylor WR Terrance Williams, according to NFL Network's Mike Mayock.

Mayock believes Williams followed up a less than average Senior Bowl with a poor COmbine performance, showing little explosiveness in lower body tests. Apparently, teams see him as a glider or smooth athlete who lacks a quick twitch or second gear.

Baylor' Terrance Williams is no longer included in NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock's top five WRs.

Williams was Mayock's third receiver in his last batch of rankings, with Tavon Austin, Quinton Patton and DeAndre Hopkins all surpassing him now. Earlier in the process, Williams was considered by some as a first-round option, but we've felt he is a bit of a one trick pony in terms of vertical receiving ability.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco believes the Minnesota Vikings should select Baylor WR Terrance Williams in the first-round.

Prisco mentioned the aging linebacker position as an area of need, but ultimately the Vikings need to give Adrian Peterson help on the offensive side of the ball. He added that a Calvin Johnson type receiver would help, but specifically meant a large body that can stretch the field. Williams put together a great 2012 season but has a history of questionable hands.

Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams was held to two catches for 68 yards against UCLA.

We bet Williams would have received more targets if the game hadn't been over so early, with Baylor taking a big lead over UCLA. His 48 yard receptions took place on Williams' best route, a vertical pattern down the sideline, which will most likely be his role early on in the NFL. We would buy a Torrey Smith-like projection for Williams.

Baylor will take on UCLA in the Holiday Bowl on December 27.

This will be a fun contest, with Baylor's fast scoring offense against a very talented Bruins defense. The Bears top offensive talent, receiver Terrance Williams, has broken the school's single season all-purpose yards record and consistently wins vertically. He will face two potentially draftable corners in Sheldon Price and Aaron Hester. Defensive lineman Datone Jones can win off the snap with power or quicks and UCLA junior outside linebacker Anthony Barr may have more buzz surrounding him than any other prospect in the country. On offense, tight end Joseph Fauria is an intriguing receiving threat and running back Johnathan Franklin is very consistent.

Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams has 22 catches longer than 25 yards this season.

14 of those catches have gone for over 40 yards. Williams is at his best when taking the top off of coverages and beating them vertically. Yes, he lacks technical route running ability, but Williams has shown a willingness to go up and get targets this season, and his straight-line speed will intrigue many.

Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams caught seven passes for 175 yards and a touchdown Saturday against Texas Tech.

This performance allowed Williams to set the Baylor single season receiving record, breaking Kendall Wright's mark from last year. We don't like Williams as much as we did Wright, but that is mainly due to the former's history of bobbles. We can't doubt Williams' straight-line speed, however.

Despite coming into the season with a seventh-round grade, SI's Tony Pauline says that Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams is now a top-60 selection.

We thought we were low on Williams, but we never considered him as late as a seventh-rounder. Pauline says that the senior has "surprised scouts with his deep speed and ability to stretch the field vertically." Williams has always had that speed, but he has shown a physical side at the catch point this season.

Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams tallied three receptions for 163 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against TCU.

Williams' day can be whittled down to two long receptions of 74 and 77 yards, both resulting in a touchdown. In these two instances, Williams just ran past the coverage on vertical routes and was able to haul in bucket catches. That is his strong suit, especially from the slot, and he won't have to expand his route tree in college.

Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams tallied 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's loss to West Virginia.

Not to be outdone by Mountaineer quarterback Geno Smith and junior receiver Stedman Bailey, Williams had his own career best performance. Even more than the stat line, we like how Williams went up and caught the ball and flashed working through physical play downfield; we had not seen that before.

Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams registered 84 receiving yards on four receptions, including two touchdowns, in Friday night's win over Louisiana-Monroe.

The first down was simple, as Williams ran right by the Cover 2 corner and the safety could not close quickly enough on the sideline. The second was the game clincher, as Williams ran a deep post and made a nice hands catch in the endzone. Many are touting the Baylor product as a top-five senior receiver, but we are skeptical of his ability to reliably catch the football or win outside of running vertically.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay considers Baylor WR Terrance Williams the second best senior WR prospect.

McShay claims that Williams, 59 catches for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns, was just as productive as Kendall Wright, 108 catches for 1,663 yards and 14 touchdowns, last season. Williams is now the Bears' top target in an offense that will continue to put up numbers. We think the senior is quite overrated due to his lack of separation ability outside of vertical routes and inconsistent hands.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco considers Baylor senior WR Terrance Williams a better prospect than former teammates Kendall Wright and Josh Gordon.

As you know, Wright was recently selected in the first-round while the Cleveland Browns used a second-round pick on Gordon. This is certainly a bold opinion since defenses will key more on Williams without Wright alongside him and Robert Griffin there to stretch out secondaries. However, many do consider Williams one of the top senior receiver prospects and an increase in targets could be in his future.
