Cowboys Come To Terms With Third-Round Pick Terrance Williams

USA TODAY Sports

A player they considered a 'steal' in the draft has agreed to terms for his rookie contract.

The Dallas Cowboys were ecstatic when they got Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams in the third round of the 2013 draft. Now they have managed to come to terms with the rookie on a four-year deal that is expected to become official tomorrow. Nick Eatman tweets the news:

Williams' new position coach, Derek Dooley, likes what he sees so far from the rookie, but acknowledges he has a long way to go.

"He’s starting to make a lot of plays in practice, which is what we saw in the college film. It’s hard. These rookies are coming in, he’s hearing a language he’s never spoke. It’s like learning Japanese, right now. He used to get a signal and he ran a route. Now he’s got to hear a play, he’s got to lineup right, we’re moving him all over the place, and then oh, by the way, go run a route against Morris Claiborne and get open. There’s a lot to it. Each day, what I’m proud of, he’s getting a little bit better. He’s still got a long way to go. It’s a journey in the National Football League, especially at wide out, but I’m really proud of how he’s progressing."

Morris Claiborne recently said very similar things about Williams:

Q: What about Terrance Williams, what do you see out of the young wideout from Baylor?

MC: He's pretty good, he's got nice size on him, he's got nice speed, and you could tell from the first day he got here how much better he's gotten with running the routes, running them at the right depth and just little things. If he gets those things down everything else will take care of itself.
