Brett Deering/Getty ImagesWide receiver Terrance Williams had a stellar senior year at Baylor.
Pros: Big receiver (6-foot-2, 208 pounds) who was tremendously productive as a Baylor senior, catching 97 passes for a nation-leading 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns. Doesn’t have blazing speed (4.52 40-yard dash), but he’s a glider with big-play ability. Has good body control and balance.

Cons: Needs to improve as a route runner. Not an explosive athlete. Has to make the transition to the NFL after playing in a spread offense at Baylor and not facing much press coverage. Has reputation for being inconsistent with effort. Has small hands (8.6 inches).

Cowboys fit: Williams can play outside in three-receiver sets, when Miles Austin shifts to the slot. He could potentially be a starter opposite Dez Bryant in the future if the Cowboys decided to part ways with the pricey Austin.

Could have had: California WR Keenan Allen, Georgia DT Johnathan Jenkins, Alabama DT Jesse Williams, Arkansas-Pine Bluff OT Terron Armstead, Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore
