Terrance Williams (WR), Baylor 

6-2 | 208 lbs. 

2012 Stats:

97 REC, 1,832 YDS, 12 TD 

Projection:

2nd Round 

Strengths:

Williams possesses a good build for an NFL wide receiver. Vertical threat and red zone target who can go up and get the ball at its highest point. Shows great body control especially along the sidelines. Makes some of the tough catches look easy. Decent speed with the ability to gain separation from defensive backs. One of the best blocking wideouts in the current draft class, isn't afraid to get physical. Helps his quarterback out by coming back for the ball. Experienced and has shown leadership qualities at Baylor. 

Weaknesses: 

Lacks explosive top-line speed. Needs to improve on his route running. Played exclusively on the outside at Baylor. Too many drops and lets it get to his head at times. Gets tackled too easily after the catch. Playing in the spread offense at Baylor, will he be able to adjust and be the same type of 'playmaker' in the NFL? 

Fit for the Bears:

Williams led the NCAA in receiving yards his senior year and showed he can still produce without Robert Griffin III. The Bears have a need at wide receiver with the loss of Johnny Knox and the possibility of Devin Hester focusing on returns. In the NFL, you can never have too many playmakers on offense. Williams could give Chicago an explosive receiving corps with his ability to be a deep threat in the mold of Torrey Smith, but will he still be on the board when the Bears are on the clock in the second-round?
