Cowboys sign third-round picks

IRVING, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys have signed both of their third-round draft picks to four-year contracts.

Baylor receiver Terrance Williams was the 74th overall pick in April, six spots ahead of Georgia Southern safety J.J. Wilcox. The team announced the signings Wednesday.

Exact terms of the deals weren’t available. Williams will get a signing bonus of more than $600,000, while Wilcox will get a bonus just under that figure.

With those deals in place, the Cowboys have five of their seven draft picks under contract. Unsigned are Wisconsin center Travis Frederick, the 31st overall pick in the first round, and second-round pick Gavin Escobar, a tight end from San Diego State.

Williams is expected to be the No. 3 receiver behind Miles Austin and Dez Bryant. The Cowboys drafted the 6-foot-2 Williams with the extra pick they got when they traded down in the first round.

Last season, he had 97 catches for 1,832 yards, a Big 12-leading 141 yards a game, and 12 touchdowns.

Wilcox moved to safety full-time from receiver for his senior season at Georgia Southern, and finished second on the team with 88 tackles. He also had two interceptions.

The 6-foot, 219-pound Wilcox had 45 catches for 898 yards and four touchdowns in three seasons as a receiver.
