COWBOYS DAY 2
Rnd 2 (47th overall) - Gavin Escobar (TE, 6-6, 254, San Diego State): First-team All-Mountain West choice in 2012. Led the Aztecs with 42 catches for 543 yards and 6 touchdowns. Great size, good hand-eye coordination, often lined up out wide, a bit of a plodder, does not block well.
Rnd 3 (74) - Terrance Williams (WR, 6-2, 208, Baylor): Led the nation in receiving yardage with 1,832 last year. Caught 97 balls, 12 going for touchdowns. Had 59 catches for 957 yards and 11 TDs as a junior. A long strider and glider who looks every bit the part of a big-play receiver.
Rnd 3 (80) - J.J. Wilcox (S, 6-0, 213, Georgia Southern): Interesting project with athleticism and versatility. Switched from wideout to slotback to strong safety for his senior year. Made 84 tackles, had two interceptions and returned kicks for an average of 25.5 yards.
