2013 NFL Draft

In the 2013 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys traded down in the first round with the San Francisco 49ers, in exchange for a third round pick that the team used to draft Williams with the 74th overall pick.[4]

2013 Season

Williams struggled in training camp adjusting to the team's offense, but by the end of the preseason he had supplanted Dwayne Harris as the third wide receiver. He again struggled at the start of the regular season with his route running and dropped passes, until the fourth game against the San Diego Chargers, where he started in place of an injured Miles Austin and registered seven receptions for 71 yards, but also had a critical fumble trying to extend for a touchdown in the last minutes of the game. He started the next week playing against the Denver Broncos and had four receptions for 151 yards with one touchdown. By week 8 against the Detroit Lions, Williams set a Cowboys' franchise record for rookies, with a touchdown in his 4th consecutive game.[5] He returned to his third receiver position in the 11th game of the season against the New York Giants and also started returning kickoffs in place of an injured Harris.

He finished his rookie season with 44 receptions for 736 yards (16.7 average) and 5 receiving touchdowns. At the time his totals ranked fourth for most receptions, most receiving yards and most receiving touchdowns by a rookie in franchise history.
