Terrance Williams has so much speed, he got used to being played “soft” in college. Nobody wanted to get burned, after all.
But in the NFL, he’s expecting to come into contact with more aggressive, physical defenders.
He was asked about it Friday night in a conference call with reporters after the Cowboys drafted him in the third round. Even over the phone, his confidence came through.
“Seeing the press is really not my biggest fear,” he said. “From the time that I saw it during college, I destroyed it. So I’m really not going to worry about the press as much, because I’m going to learn how to beat it. And I’m sure they’re going to teach me how to beat it more.”
At 6-foot-2 and 208 pounds, Williams has a chance to be physical right back. He knows who to watch – 6-2, 220 Dez Bryant and 6-2, 217 Miles Austin.
“I’m just trying to learn how to get better and work out and learn from Dez Bryant and Miles Austin,” he said. “That would mean the world to me and get me ready for press coverage.”
