Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Williams looks the part with a lengthy frame and vertical speed to create separation downfield, showing excellent footwork along the sideline. Has some creative ability to make something happen with the ball in his hands. Gliding athlete with smooth acceleration and long-striding speed. Good body control and balance for his size with smooth transitions and movements.

Tracks the ball well downfield and can gain a step with an extra gear to be a legitimate vertical threat. Good focus and reach. Not a burner but catches the ball in stride and has the flexibility to make tough catches. Strong plant foot in his routes to gain inside position and immediately looks upfield after the catch. Works back to the pocket and has good field awareness.

WEAKNESSES: Average route-runner who needs continued improvement; ran a very limited route tree at Baylor. Stiff ankles and has more build-up speed than blow-by wheels. Rarely saw press coverage and often ran into the secondary untouched. Mental errors, notably drops of catchable passes, must be cleaned up. Questionable toughness and didn't fight for every yard. Won't break tackles. Has chirped in the past about not getting the ball.

Compares To: Torrey Smith, WR, Ravens - Williams doesn't have the same top-shelf speed as Smith, but he is a similar vertical threat, stretching the field and using his length to finish downfield. Neither is the most polished route-runner, but they play tough and physical when needed.

Player Overview

Kendall Wright became the first receiver from Baylor to be drafted in the first round, going to the Titans in 2012. And although he is a different style of wideout than Wright, Williams could become the second Baylor receiver drafted in the opening stanza. His elite size to go along with quickness and speed helped Williams roll up 1,832 receiving yards in 2012 and 27 touchdown catches in his final three seasons in Waco.

He wasn't a priority recruit, but evaluators see him fitting somewhere between Wright and 2012 second-round supplemental draft pick Josh Gordon as a starter in the NFL.

Williams finished second on the team in receiving in 2011 with career-bests in every receiving category, finishing third in the Big 12 with 11 touchdowns grabs.

Williams was a little-known high school recruit out of Dallas, but received a scholarship offer from Baylor and redshirted in 2008.

After serving as a reserve in 2009, he started 10 games in 2010 as a sophomore with 43 catches for 484 yards and four scores. Williams set career-highs in 2011 as a junior with 59 receptions for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns, earning All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors.

03/28/2013 - 2013 Baylor Pro Day: Wide receiver prospects get close look at Baylor's pro day...Representatives from 27 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at Baylor on Wednesday, where 14 players went through a workout held indoors on FieldTurf. Dallas Cowboys wide receivers coaches Derek Dooley and Keith O'Quinn, as well as Jacksonville Jaguars wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan were among the noteworthy attendees in Waco, Texas.

Terrance Williams, WR (6-foot-2 1/8, 207 pounds) - Williams was at the NFL Scouting Combine and stood on his numbers from the event, only doing position drills at Baylor's pro day. Williams is a really good looking athlete and is a likely second-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft. I have Williams as the No. 37-rated prospect in this year's draft.

Jerry Rhome - a member of the College Football Hall of Fame who coached for 25 years in the NFL - conducted the receiver workout, and Nick Florence - Robert Griffin III???s one-time backup and the Bears' starter in 2012 - was throwing the ball to the receivers. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
