Overview

This past April, Kendall Wright became the first receiver from Baylor to be drafted in the first round. And although he is a different style of wideout than Wright, Williams could become the second Baylor receiver drafted in the opening round next April.

He finished second on the team in receiving last season with career-bests in every receiving category, finishing third in the Big 12 with 11 touchdowns grabs.

Williams was a little-known high school recruit out of Dallas, but received a scholarship offer from Baylor and redshirted in 2008.

After serving as a reserve in 2009, he started 10 games in 2010 as a sophomore with 43 catches for 484 yards and four scores. Williams set career-highs in 2011 as a junior with 59 receptions for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns, earning All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors. He won't have to play in Wright's shadow anymore, but he also loses his Heisman-winning quarterback and will be catching passes from senior Nick Florence in 2012.

Analysis

Williams looks the part with a lengthy frame and vertical speed to create separation downfield, showing excellent footwork along the sideline. He is a tough runner, flashing the creative ability to make something happen with the ball in his hands. Williams isn't on the same level as Kendall Wright as a pro prospect, but he might be able to do what Wright didn't last April and be the first senior receiver drafted in 2013.

--Dane Brugler

09/24/12 - Week 4 Rewind: As much as scouts (and Baylor fans) appreciate Williams' receiving ability, it was his hustle midway through the fourth quarter during a botched two-point conversion attempt that may have been his most impressive play. With Baylor having just re-taken the lead at 40-35, Florence had the ball poked free from ULM's undersized defensive end Joey Gautney, who picked up the ball and was racing back in an attempt to give the Warhawks their own two-point score. Gautney, a 6-1, 240 pound sophomore, has good speed and nothing but green grass ahead of him. He also had a convoy of blockers behind him, who picked off three would-be tacklers for the Bears. Williams' speed and determination, however, allowed him to avoid the blockers and track down Gautney 50+ yards later to eliminate the scoring opportunity. Baylor ended up winning 47-42. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

09/24/12 - Week 4 Rewind: The rapid transformation of the Baylor Bears into a legitimate NFL breeding ground didn't end with the loss of Heisman winner Robert Griffin III heading off to the Washington Redskins. Often overshadowed by RG3 and big play specialist Kendall Wright a season ago, Terrance Williams showed off the skill-set Friday night against Louisiana-Monroe to demonstrate why many scouts view him as the nation's top senior wide receiver prospect. Statistically-speaking, Williams posted his least impressive performance of the young 2012 season against the Warhawks, who entered this game fresh off of a 31-28 overtime loss at Auburn and having shocked Arkansas in their season-opener. Williams had averaged 6.5 catches for 135 yards and scored two touchdowns in Baylor's first two games. Against the Warhawks, he was "limited" to four catches for 84 yards - though two of them went for scores. Griffin's replacement at quarterback, Nick Florence, tried to force the ball to his star receiver early in this contest and saw two of his passes intercepted in the first quarter, leading to ULM jumping out to a surprising 14-0 lead. As the game went on, however, Williams' exciting blend of size and speed proved too much for the Warhawks. Respecting his ability to attack defenses deep, ULM tried to bracket Williams, at times. On one such occasion, Williams simply eluded the cornerback with a slippery shoulder fake and slight hesitation before accelerating past the closing safety to gather in a perfectly thrown ball from Florence down the right sideline to knot the game at 21 in the second quarter. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

09/21/12 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Baylor at Louisiana-Monroe, Sept. 21 -- The Bears are going on the road for the first time to face a team that nearly posted two road wins over SEC opponents, splitting overtime games at Arkansas (a win) and at Auburn (a loss). The Bears are looking for their second 3-0 start under coach Art Briles. They begin Big 12 play the next week with a trip to new conference member West Virginia. KEYS TO THE GAME: Don't get rattled. The Bears are going to face a team playing its first game at home in front of a crowd that is sure to be juiced up following the Warhawks' play the first two games. The Bears must keep pressure on ULM QB Kolton Browning and not let him escape for key runs. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Terrance Williams is off to an outstanding start to his senior season with a team-high 13 catches for 269 yards and two touchdowns. - The Sports Xchange

09/16/12 - WR Terrance Williams had another big game with six receptions for 131 yards. He had two catches for touchdowns. It was his seventh career game with at least 100 yards in receiving.

09/04/12 - BIG 12: PLAYERS WHOSE NFL DRAFT STOCK IS RISING: Terrance Williams, Baylor: Baylor's top receiver enters the season as a projected second-round pick by CBSSports.com. If Williams keeps playing like he did in the opener against SMU -- 7 catches for 138 yards -- he could work his way into the first round. One other thing to keep an eye on this year is how former Baylor WR Kendall Wright plays with the Titans. A big rookie season for Wright could bode well for Williams. - C.J. Moore, CBSSports.com

It seems like the draft eligible underclassmen WR prospects get alot of attention (and rightfully so), but Williams doesn't seem to get much attention as one of the topWR prospects for the 2013 NFL draft. Where do you think he ranks among the top eligible prospects for 2013? Do you see him as a 1st round grade WR (not necessarily saying he will go in the 2013 1st round)?

He has the size + speed combination that teams look for and the production to back up the measurables. Any Baylor fans that can give any additional insight into Williams would be appreciated.

Most guys his size don't look as fast a they actually are. But this dude glides.

I was skeptical about him and how he'd do with RG3 and Kendall Wright out of the fold. But he has really impressed me. Big time playmaker and deep threat. I think he'll be one of the first two WRs off the board.


Agreed, he has impressed me for sure. But does being in the Big XII on a pass happy team hurt his stock? The last few wr's out of pass happy Big XII offenses have proven to be more trouble than they're worth:

Adarius(sp) Bowman
Michael Crabtree (not a bust, calm down 9r fans, he just wasn't worth the 10th overall pick).
Dez Bryant
Justin Blackmon

Bowman was slow as molasses, not even drafted (why would he matter), Crabtree wasn't nearly as good as thought (System greatly inflated ability), Dez is talented, too much of a headcase (Williams is not), Blackmon has played like 6 games. Laughing

I don't think it hurts him. JH covered it with Bowman. Blackmon and Crabtree were prodcts of their systems. They'd catch a short pass at the line of scrimmage with the defense spread out and noone in position to make a tackle and run in the open field. Terrance Williams is a field stretcher making ridiculous catches down the field.

The thing with Terrance is, if you throw the ball in the air, he's going to come down with it a very, very high percentage of the time. He has great leaping ability, big hands, long arms, and of course an already tall 6'3" frame. If you combine all that with 4.50 speed you have a pretty dang good player.

Another way that Briles is elite at finding diamonds in the rough. Terrance only played football for two years in high school, and through a tireless work ethic and great coaching, he seems poised for the first round.

Is 4.5 a low ball estimate? He looks a lot faster than that to me?

He's not gonna test great. He does look faster though. From friends on the team, during the spring he sat between 4.49-4.55. That's plenty fast for how big he is though, at least IMO.

I wouldn't be surprised after training for it, another year of getting stronger and faster, if he is faster by the time the combine runs around though.

If you don't remember, before his stock plummeted from experts cricizing his speed and his inability to stay out of trouble got the best of him, he was a projected first round pick.

I just would be less skeptical if the Big XII had actually produce one good-great NFL wr from their numerous great wr prospects throughout the past decade.

Well, some good WRs out of the Big XII are:
-Wes Welker
-Danny Amendola
-Jordy Nelson
-Dez Bryant
-Jeremy Maclin
-Michael Crabtree

You also have guys like Josh Gordon and Kendall Wright that haven't had a chance to prove themselves.

Using a conference as a knock is one of the laziest possible ways of analyzing a player.

By the MEDIA. Which means absolutely nothing. Kiper and ESPN had Andre Woodson as a projected 1st rounder during his final season at UK.

That's not even how I'm evalutating him, it was simply a sidenote in my first post here that became the focal point of later posts. I already said he's impressed me. He can stetch the field and has deceptive speed for a large guy, two things some of the receivers I'd listed do not have (Bowman, Crabtree, Blackmon). So I acknowledge he's different from them.


However, I am still going to put an asteric on him because, yes, the conference he play in does in fact worry me. How often does he run block? Has he even been taught much technique in that area? I'm sure Baylor spends more practice time on pass oriented stuff. Kendall said he never had a playbook at Baylor, that might be something to worry about.

The conference he plays in has no affect whatsoever on how good or not good he is. Even against bad defensive schemes and bad teams, if you know what you're looking for, you can see the problems in a guy's game. It's(competition) why you don't evaluate by stats.

And if I'm drafting a WR, run blocking technique is the least of my concerns. It's great if he has it but I can easily teach him that at the next level.
