Terrance Williams said he is going to get a chance to learn from one of the best – Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant.
“Back in college, when I was on scout team, I had to be him,” said Williams, the Baylor receiver taken by the Cowboys in the third round of the NFL draft Friday night.
“That’s somebody that I really, really liked,” Williams said. “I’m going to get a chance to play beside him. That means the world to me because now I get to learn from one of the best and somebody that can help me throughout the whole process, bring out the best side of me.”
Williams said he’ll go into the NFL with confidence after seeing the success of former Baylor receivers Josh Gordon and Kendall Wright.
“That lets me know, hey, we can fit right in, too,” Williams said. “When they call my number, that’s my chance to make a play. I’m just going to continue to make plays and play. That’s something I plan to do when I come in from Day 1.”
Williams said he had not yet heard from his former quarterback, Robert Griffin III. But he knows what that first NFL meeting is going to be like.
“I’m pretty sure when we play the Redskins, it’s going to get pretty heated,” he said, drawing laughs from the reporters. “I’m not going to like his team. Probably going to get crazy there.”
