Roy Williams 31

FREE SAFETY

2002-2008

Roy Williams was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the eighth overall pick of the 2002 NFL Draft after a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was known throughout the league for his hard hitting and his tackling skills during running plays.  As a rookie in 2002, he was moved to free safety in order to play alongside strong safety Darren Woodson. However, the Cowboys defensive scheme that year allowed both players to interchange positions as to allow confusion for the opposing offenses. Williams was also runner-up for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

 

In 2003, Williams with the mentoring of Woodson, enjoyed a stellar season and his first of five trips to the Pro Bowl as he was part of the Cowboys' number one ranked defense and helped lead the team to its first playoff game since 1999. Show your appreciation for Roy Williams with collectibles, photographs and more here at the Drew Pearson's Cowboys Legends Pro Shop.
