  1. Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 201. Arm: 30 5/8. Hand: 8 3/4.
    40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    4/24/13: Williams did not stand out and help his draft stock at the Combine. That was the case at the Senior Bowl as well.

    Williams resoundingly proved he can produce without Robert Griffin III as his quarterback. Williams led the nation in receiving yardage this year with 1,832 yards on 97 receptions with 12 touchdowns.

    Williams set Big XII records with 17 receptions for 314 yards and two touchdowns against West Virginia. He made making tough catches in the short to intermediate part of the field this season, but also made long catches downfield. Williams' deep speed was surprising, but it may not translate against the faster defensive backs of the NFL.

    8/17/12: Williams had a very good 2011 season even though he was the No. 2 receiver, behind Kendall Wright. Williams caught 59 passes for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns. He had 43 catches for 484 yards and four touchdowns in 2010.

    Williams has some size with underrated speed that catches cornerbacks by surprise. His straight-line speed allows him make plays down the field. Last year he had a lot of success running just straight go routes down the field.

    Williams also operates comfortably in the short and intermediate part of the field. Baylor has had success with Williams running slants and digs, the staple routes of an NFL West Coast offense. On the more shallow and intermediate routes, he doesn't display the burner speed that he has when running a straight go route.

    However, Williams has enough quickness in and out of his breaks to get separation from defensive backs and get open. He projects as a great red-zone weapon.

    It wouldn't be surprising if Williams' numbers decline without Robert Griffin at quarterback, but if the senior somehow stays consistent, he could place himself firmly in first-round consideration.
