    The Dallas Cowboys scored in the 2013 draft with first round selection, center Travis Frederick and third rounder, wide receiver Terrance Williams, both of whom were named to Mel Kiper's All-Rookie Team after the season. According to CBS Sports’s Pete Prisco, this is just the beginning for the pair of league sophomores.

    Prisco put Frederick and Williams on his list of 25 players he expects to break out in 2014.

    “When the Cowboys picked him in the first round of the 2013 draft, there were snickers,” Prisco writes of Frederick. “But it was the right move. He showed last season as a 16-game starter that he has a chance to be a really good center. He is smart and athletic, two musts for the position these days.”

    Prisco believes Williams is in position to build on a rookie campaign that saw 44 catches, 736 yards and five touchdowns.

    “With Miles Austin now gone, this second-year player takes over as the starter opposite Dez Bryant,” Prisco writes. “That should mean a lot of single coverage and a chance for big plays. Look for his numbers to go up dramatically from his 44 catches a year ago.”
