Cowboys rookie receiver Terrance Williams knows a little better what to expect from life in the NFL after speaking to his old Baylor teammate Robert Griffin III, who was made the second overall pick in the 2011 draft by the rival Washington Redskins, after last month’s draft.
“[He said] just continue to do you and don’t change the way you are,” Williams said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Be happy with your capabilities and show what you can do. I just really took that to heart the most.”
Williams lasted until the third round, but he’s considered by many in the Dallas organization to be a steal in that position.
“Well, I was surprised, and I think a lot of people were surprised,” receivers coach Derek Dooley said of Williams. “And then of course, as a position coach, I was hopeful that the organization felt the same way that I did. Fortunately, we did.”
