Williams, a 5-foot-8, 188-pounder who missed most of his senior season after suffering a broken arm, was the first Oklahoma State player selected. He was picked in the second round by Denver (56th overall) and will join former Cowboy teammates Tatum Bell on the Bronco roster.
Morency, a 5-9, 212-pound junior who left OSU after rushing for 1,474 yards last season, was selected in the third round by the Houston Texans (73rd overall). The 25-year-old Morency played several years of minor league baseball in the Colorado Rockies' organization before joining the OSU football program in 2002. He had a breakout sophomore season in which he ran for 918 yards and six touchdowns. Last season he proved that 2003 was no fluke by running for nearly 1,500 yards. He was the seventh running back taken in the NFL Draft.
Williams saw limited action for the Cowboys last season after breaking his arm in the third game of the season. He was the ninth cornerback selected in Saturday's first three rounds of the draft.
