Going into his first NFL training camp, rookie receiver Terrance Williams is feeling pretty confident. He got to that place by paying close attention to veterans Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, who have been integral to the University of Baylor product’s development thus far.
“They been watching me day one since I been here and they been telling me stuff that can better myself in different ways and be more effective,” Williams told TheLandryHat.com this week. “The stuff that they tell me I pay special attention to.”
There seems a decent chance that Williams will be behind his two mentors on the depth chart when the season begins, as the No. 3 receiver, but he’ll have to battle Dwayne Harris for that spot.
That said, he seems to be gearing himself up for that battle quite nicely. Aside from the counsel he got from Bryant and Austin, Williams had a chance through OTAs and mini-camp to talk with his new quarterback Tony Romo, who he says was “like a coach” as he recovered from surgery to remove a cyst from his back.
“He was just basically there the whole time, but just wasn’t throwing the ball,” Williams said. “That helped out a lot. The stuff he told me really benefited me and I can help myself out.”
