Cowboys finally get ” Offensive ” in 5th Round

After waiting until Day 3 of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cowboys finally selected a player for the offensive side of the ball, turning their 5th round card ( 152nd overall ) to select Virginia Tech’s Wide Receiver Danny Coale.

Coale, 6′-0″ 201 lbs., ran a 4.5 at the combine, and comes in as more of a slot receiver type of player. Coale ranks second at Virginia Tech in career pass receptions ( 155 ), and pass receiving yardage ( 2,530 ). His receiving yards are the 19th best in ACC history.

I was kind of looking at Arizona’s Juron Crider as an up and coming replacement for Laurent Robinson. But I am not a scout, or a member of the Cowboy coaching department, so I am sure they found value on Coale with their 5th round selection.

The Cowboys still have 2 remaining selections in the draft in the 6th round ( 186th overall ), and 7th round ( 222nd overall ).
