According to Star-Telegram beat writer Charean Williams, the Cowboys sent four staffers to the Texas Pro Day on Tuesday to get a closer look at cornerback Aaron Willaims.
Secondary coach Dave Campo and safeties coach Brett Maxie were joined by scouting director Tom Ciskowski and scout staffer Chris Hall.
Williams didn't disappoint. He told his agent he ran 4.36 in the 40 yard dash. It was also reported by former Cowboys scouting directer Gil Brandt that he ran a 4.40.
Either time is great for Williams who had a disappointing effort at the Scouting Combine in February when he ran a 4.52 in the 40, prompting scouts to talk about him moving to safety and his stock to drop from a possible late first-round pick to a second rounder.
Williams' effort on Tuesday should solidify his place in the first round. If the Cowboys were going to get him it will likely either be a trade down from the 9th overall pick or with a trade up from the second round.
Keep in mind that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was also in attendance. Cornerback is a huge need for Pittsburgh and they could be eyeing Williams for the 31st overall pick.
