We may even want to take a look at Wide Receiver in the second or third round as once again Miles Austin had hamstring issues and let’s face it, the Cowboys Receiving Corps is not deep. Well, yesterday one of the best Wide Receivers in this draft, Terrence Williams of the Baylor Bears let it be known he would love to play for the Cowboys. Would Jerry and Jason use a prime pick such as a second round choice on a wide receiver? It depends on who we acquire in Free Agency and if at that point Williams is seen as the best player available.
Williams is on the South Roster and will be catching passes from Oklahoma Quarterback Landry Jones. Love the name. Do I think the Cowboys should look at a Quarterback? No, I don’t. Not even with the perceived penchant Tony Romo has for throwing picks and not doing well in big games, I do not think we need to go Quarterback in this Draft, but I do love his name.
On the South roster a few names the Cowboys may be watching are Larry Warford, a monster Guard from the Kentucky Wildcats. They may also want to watch Alabama giant Tackle D. J. Fluker as a replacement for the very disappointing Doug Free. Fluker weighed in at 355 pounds coming off his celebration of yet another Alabama National Championship. They may also take a look at BYU’s athletic freak Defensive End, Ezekial “Ziggy” Ansah. Ziggy is a compelling story. Born and raised in Ghana, Africa he came to the United States for college for the BYU Cougars. He attempted twice to walk on to the basketball team, did walk onto the track team, and finally in 2010 he walked onto the football team and has parlayed that into a possibility of being a first round pick. While on the track team this 6’5″, then 250 pound monster ran a 10.91 second time in the 100 meters. He now weighs in the 275 pound range but he is a disruptive force who may just be scratching the surface on how good he can be. The name most use to describe his potential is Jason Pierre-Paull of the new York Giants.
I had hoped South Carolina Gamecocks Running Back Marcus Lattimore could be healthy enough for the Senior Bowl, but that was not meant to be. He is someone I would love to see the Cowboys add in the later rounds after they address some needs.
Moving on to the North Squad at the Senior Bowl one of the names on my pet cat list is SMU Mustang Defensive End Margus Hunt. Like Ansah, Hunt is a relative newcomer to football and he has shown that at times he is so athletic that he just dominates. The name most associate Hunt with is Houston Texans phenom J.J. Watt. If you didn’t see the 2012 Hawaii Bowl game against Fresno State you may have missed one of the most dominating one man wrecking crew performances I have ever seen. Hunt took over. If he has a good Senior Bowl and good workouts at the Combines some scouts are predicting he is going to be the fast riser in this Draft. Dallas had a great interview with Margus the other day. I am hopeful we have a shot at him.
