    A wide receiver? Another skill player? Where is the need for Terrance Williams when you have Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Dwayne Harris? Let me tell you this, Terrance Williams fills a big need and was an absolute steal in the third round for the Dallas Cowboys.

    For the last two years, I complained that the Cowboys have lacked two things from their receiving corps: They lacked another outside wide receiver to pair with Dez Bryant and they didn’t have a deep threat with speed who could take the top off the defense. On Friday, the accomplished both by selecting Baylor WR Terrance Williams in the third round.

    Williams really came into his own in 2011 with Robert Griffin III as his quarterback. That season he hauled in 59 receptions for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns. But what was even more impressive was after RGIII left in 2012, Williams elevated his play and became one of the premier players in college football.

    In 2012, he led the nation in receiving yards, piling up 1,832 yards on 97 catches to go along with 12 touchdowns. As a prospect, I believe he falls somewhere between last year’s first round pick from Baylor, Kendall Wright and the 2012 second round supplemental draft pick Josh Gordon of the Cleveland Browns.

    When Miles' legs are right he's fast enough to be an outside threat but we haven't had deadly speed that was effective since when....Rocket? Galloway?. Surely I'm missing someone. Dez isn't and TO wasn't that fast.

    Amidst all my criticizing of the Escobar pick, I'm actually in favor of this one. It shores up the receiving corps by taking some pressure off Dez and letting Miles run intermediate routes and take advantage of YAC (AKA play the slot)

    Can we get lucky like this again? Getting Glenn for a low draft pick was a steal. He was such a good player for us.

    It tells you that Kendall wright was the go to guy, just like dez was and when he was gone Blackmon stepped up and so did Williams.

    Glenn had the physical talent to easily go down as an all-timer. He lost a chunk of his prime years due to a myriad of reasons. Some of it was his own fault. Better health and in a better situation consistently, his career numbers would be among top 15-20 in most statistical categories for WRs.

    As for Williams...realistically you hope somewhere around Thanksgiving he begins to make his mark on this offense. With all the weapons in front of him, opportunities will be limited and it won't be easy.

    Don't worry, he clearly doesn't know what he's talking about, he's probably still in high school.

    :bow: I can't think of any WR I've watched who did that as well. I don't miss him falling down immediately after making every catch though. For his athleticism, his YAC was absurdly low

    I was really happy to see the Cowboys select him. Williams showed last season that his production was not based on RGIII but the fact he is a quality player. I look forward to seeing him on the field
