Cowboys' picks say a quick hello
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys brought their top three picks, Travis Frederick, Terrance Williams and Gavin Escobar, to Valley Ranch on Sunday for a meet and greet with the media.
Frederick and Williams were pre-draft visitors to the Cowboys’ practice facility, while Escobar made his first trek to the complex on Saturday.
“Feels great to be here,” Williams said. “This is a place I always wanted to be.”
Williams, a Dallas native, even offered up some advice for his new teammates.
“He already told us the traffic is terrible,” Escobar joked.
Frederick and Escobar are scheduled on flights to leave Dallas tonight. On his American Eagle flight from Madison, Wis., Frederick, all 312 pounds of him, was glad to have an open seat next to him but he wasn’t sure he would be so lucky on the return.
All of the players will be back in Irving for the rookie mini-camp from May 10-12.
