Despite the overachievement of the Dallas Cowboys defense this year, there is still the need to upgrade the talent level in the secondary.
Names like Roy Williams and Quinten Jammer have surfaced as possible candidates for the Cowboys' 1st round pick.
Roy Williams, the dynamic play-making safety from the University of Oklahoma, has decided to forego his senior season in Norman and entered the NFL Draft earlier in the year.
"I really feel that it's time for me to
accept a new challenge for myself and my family. I hope everyone understands that. This has been a very hard decision. I've put in a lot of time and hard work here," stated Williams at a press conference today.
TFY Draft Analysis: Williams
is heady, intelligent and just a good football player. He was the best player on the field at the Cotton Bowl when we
scouted OU/UT in Dallas this past October but he is going to have to run a very fast forty time prior to the draft if he wants to crack the top 12.
The Good: Big, intimidating safety. Sized well, quick defending the run and easily brings down ball carriers at initial contact. Defeats blocks getting to the action, shows a burst of straight-line speed and wraps-up tackling. Imposing looking figure on the field.
The Bad: Nice overall ball awareness, speed and pass covers well in a small area but lacks the sideline-to-sideline range, overall quickness and hip movement.
The Skinny: Solid strong-safety prospect.
