I don’t think there are a lot of people out there who could argue that the Dallas Cowboys do not have enough talent to win a Super Bowl. They do. And they have relatively young talent outside from a few guys.
This is why at least in the second round the Cowboys should pick players who fill holes the team has and who can play immediately. With the first round pick at No. 27, I think the Cowboys should take the best available offensive lineman on their talent list.
But in the second round, there is one guy who I’ve researched who might be a perfect fit for the Cowboys. His name is Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, a cornerback from Indiana at Pennsylvania. I have to admit that I didn’t know who the guy was until I began researching possible draft picks for the Cowboys. I was looking for the best return guys and Owusu-Ansah’s name popped up on a few scouts’ radars. I checked out his stats, his background and some of his best plays.
The guy is a playmaker. At the combine, he ran a 4.47 and his best was 4.38 at the Pro Day. He’s also 6 feet tall and hits pretty hard as a cornerback.
He had one of the better punt returns in college for the year:
Owusu-Ansah fills two one hole for the Cowboys by giving them a true punt return threat that’s been missing for a decade. But he also adds depth to the secondary and possibly could push Orlando Scandrick to only nickel packages. And here is another video on him doing more than returning punts:
