Tobin McDuff reports from the NFL Draft

Cowboys 2017 Mock Draft Dallas Trades Down With San Francisco 7 Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield

That's how the 2018 NFL Draft began.

In doing so, Williams heard his name called with the No. 50 pick, and thus, becomes the first Longhorns offensive lineman drafted since Tony Hills in 2008. He's an underrated player but don't expect him to replace [Dez] Bryant. The most shocking pick of the day was the 19th selection from the Dallas Cowboys when they chose Boise State Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch [VIDEO].

The two-time national champion told Michael Casagrande of AL.com he didn't have the "great season that I was planning on having" but still thinks he could bring a lot to an NFL roster.

Williams is a Dallas native and was thrilled to have the opportunity to play for his hometown Cowboys, which was quite evident as he was overcome with emotion in the green room.

One of the most recognizable faces during draft season is Mel Kiper Jr., the ESPN In$ider who's served as an ESPN draft analyst for over 30 years.

In three seasons at Texas, Williams started all 28 games he appeared in. Scarbrough (6-foot-1, 235) is a hulking back with good athleticism, including elite jump scores and a 4.52-second forty-yard dash. The only other issue could be 33-inch arms, which is a bit on the short side for a tackle in the NFL. "We have scouts and personnel people who are convicted he can play outside as well". "To actually be picked where I've always wanted to go, I'm super thankful and couldn't be more blessed to get the opportunity".

Dallas could use versatility on a line that struggled at times with injuries and ineffectiveness.

If Vander Esch can cut it after stepping up in competition again, he'll allow Jaylon Smith to move to the strong side of the defense in 2018, a role to which Smith is much better suited than middle linebacker, where he played last season.

Williams was at the draft in nearby Arlington, just south of his home in Coppell.

In his senior season, Gallup caught a school-record 100 passes for 1,413 yards and seven touchdowns.

"I'm not really coming to replace anybody", he said from his home in Monroe, Georgia.
