Good News Cowboys Fans, The 2017 NFL Draft Is Stacked With Edge Rushers

Good News Cowboys Fans, The 2017 NFL Draft Is Stacked With Edge Rushers

The Cowboys need a pass rush, the NFL draft is ready to provide. The Dallas Cowboys seem to have gotten lucky this year. Even though they are drafting toward the back of the pack in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft, they may still walk away with what they covet - a pass rusher. Pick #28 would usually mean a second-tier pass rusher, as the position is among the most-wanted in the draft every year. This year, according to draft guru Mike Mayock, the draft is stocked with exactly what the Cowboys need. “Defensively, it’s unbelievable. The edge rushers … we haven’t seen a group...

Report: Cowboys Have Interest In Josh McCown For Backup QB

Report: Cowboys Have Interest In Josh McCown For Backup QB

Reports are circulating that the Cowboys have talked to Josh McCown about coming to Dallas. A familiar name is surfacing as a possible backup quarterback for the Cowboys, the same guy who was discussed last season. The Cowboys reached out to the Cleveland Browns about Josh McCown in 2016 when they we playing quarterback shuffle, first after an injury to Kellen Moore, then later when Tony Romo went down. The Browns were asking too much, reportedly either a second-round pick or Ron Leary, so the Cowboys balked and ended up playing some kid named Dak Prescott. That turned out okay. Dallas...

Dallas Cowboys Draft 2017: Jaylon Smith Aside, Here’s Five Intriguing Linebacker Prospects

Dallas Cowboys Draft 2017: Jaylon Smith Aside, Here’s Five Intriguing Linebacker Prospects

Here are a few linebackers to look over because we still don’t know if Jaylon Smith will be ready for 2017. The Cowboys have an outstanding linebackers coach in Matt Eberflus. He will most assuredly make the shortlist of candidates for defensive coordinator post-Rod Marinelli, that is if they can keep him from being poached by another team. What he has been able to accomplish over his tenure with the Cowboys has not gone unnoticed and could be a column in itself. With that said, Dallas still has room to grow at linebacker and they could use a bit more talent outside of Sean Lee. Some...

Do The Cowboys Have A True Prototype Blocking Tight End?

Do The Cowboys Have A True Prototype Blocking Tight End?

What does it take to be a blocking TE for the Dallas Cowboys? Might as well ask what it takes to be a TE... We recently received an astute request for an article here at BTB. A reader asked about the purpose of a blocking TE, specifically why a blocking TE was better than an extra tackle, and, finally if the Dallas Cowboys (or other teams) had a particular prototype set of measurables for the position. Being a long-time fan of the position (going back to my early days of pretending to be Jay Saldi in my backyard football endeavors), I wanted to take a look at this myself. The reader...

Why What You Don’t See At The NFL Combine Might Be The Most Important Thing

Why What You Don’t See At The NFL Combine Might Be The Most Important Thing

A draft prospect’s talent can largely be gauged from video, but it takes much more to figure out if he is the right kind of guy. The NFL Combine is often referred to derisively as the Underwear Olympics. Coaches, scouts, and other team executives from all the NFL franchises will gather in Indianapolis to watch the best prospective draft picks get measured, take the Wonderlic, and go through various drills and skills evaluations. And a surprising number of viewers will tune into coverage on the NFL Network. The combine was originated as a way to do these evaluations once and make the...

Roster Breakdown (Part Eight): Taking A Closer Look At The Cornerbacks On The Dallas Cowboys

How will Dallas manage having a pair of free agent starting cornerbacks? The Dallas Cowboys enter this off-season in a challenging situation with regards to their secondary. Typically, players come and go but it is unusual for both of your starters to enter free agency at the same time. In the NFC, the Cowboys routinely face extremely talented receivers and given their lack of a pass rush, there is immense pressure for the secondary to step up. Here we will discuss the cornerback position followed by the safety position in the final part of our ten part series. Brandon Carr Brandon Carr...
