Here are the six 2012 draft picks for the Dallas Cowboys.
Star. Superstar. Game Changer. Shutdown CB. All that and a bag of chips son.
We wanted a DE prospect who could finally provide some pass rush and disruption ability from that spot. This kid has shown the ability to do this at Boise State with 13.5 sacks and 27 TFL’s over the last two seasons.
Pass rusher from the OLB spot. Not ready to take over for Anthony Spencer yet, but in time he can win that job. Has a nice first step which is key for that role.
Strong Safety who is more athletic specimen than he is good football player right now. Came back from injury and showed good speed at his Pro Day. Don’t look for him to start anytime soon, but he should be a special teams player now.
Slot WR. Really like this kid because he was very productive in college. I wanted a third WR who had already learned the slot position and had produced there in college. This is the guy. Not a wow player which is why he’s in the 5th round, but every play in a game isn’t a wow play folks.
They needed to draft a TE for depth. You are goiong to hear that he’s very athletic and can get downfield. Problem with that is that he was inconsistent in college. Think depth, but do not think next Antonio Gates.
Ran a 4.97 at the combine so that’s why he’s drafted as opposed to undrafted rookie free agent. Special teams is probably his max for an NFL career.
