IRVING, Texas - The Dallas Cowboys have taken Baylor receiver Terrance Williams with the first of two picks in third round of the NFL draft.
The Cowboys took the former Dallas high school player with the 74th overall choice on Friday night. They got the pick from San Francisco when they traded down in the first round on the draft's opening night.
Williams was a first-team AP All-America last season after catching 97 passes for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns. When Robert Griffin III was throwing to him in 2011, he had 59 catches for 957 yards and 11 scores.
The Dallas Cowboys drafted safety J.J. Wilcox of Georgia Southern with their second of two picks in the third round of the NFL draft.
The Cowboys took the prospect from the Football Championship Subdivision, a tier below the top level of college football, with the 80th overall selection Friday night.
Wilcox moved to safety full-time from receiver for his senior season and finished second on the team with 88 tackles. He had two interceptions. He also returned kickoffs.
The 5-foot-11, 214-pound Wilcox had 45 catches for 898 yards and four touchdowns in three seasons as a receiver.
