Dallas Cowboys 2013 Draft: Cowboys Select WR Terrance Williams With Pick 74

Dallas adds a receiver to the fold.

US PRESSWIRE

Another pick, another player on offense. The Cowboys have added a wide receiver to the fold, bringing in WR Terrance Williams from Baylor University. Williams is now the second player that visited Valley Ranch in pre-draft visits that has joined the fold.

Williams fits the Cowboys mold of their prototypical wide receiver, standing 6'2" and weighing 208 lbs. Williams has the speed to be the vertical threat that Dallas has been missing that will stretch the field. Williams totaled over 200 catches in his collegiate career, catching passes from Robert Griffin III before this past season.

He plays faster than his 4.52 forty-time, with what is referred to as "pad speed".

With the second consecutive move, Dallas has seemingly picked up a replacement to a skill position player that is getting up there in age and poses a huge hit to the salary cap. Gavin Escobar does that for Jason Witten and Williams could possibly be that for Miles Austin.

Fans shouldn't be surprised that Dallas picked up a wide receiver. They placed a third-round bid in last year's supplemental draft on Williams' former teammate Josh Gordon, who ended up going to the Cleveland Brown's.

As I hinted at earlier, the last time Dallas brought in a new defensive mind they allowed the coach to see what he had in the roster and only threw him one bone. Rob Ryan only got Bruce Carter in his first year as D-Coordinator and he was a redshirt. Monte Kiffin seems to be receiving the same treatment.
