Ten Senior Bowl Players That Cowboys Fans Should Watch

NFL coaches and front office personnel have spent this week in Mobile, Alabama as practices for the upcoming Senior Bowl feature some of the top football prospects in the nation. With the 2014 NFL Draft in May, team officials are attempting to find the future stars of tomorrow. As a fan, there is also entertainment in scouting players yourself for possible selection by your favorite team. To aid you in this effort, here are the ten players I’ll be watching this Saturday as possible draft picks for the Dallas Cowboys.

Dec 27, 2013; San Francisco, CA, USA; Brigham Young Cougars wide receiver Cody Hoffman (2) runs a route against Washington Huskies defensive back Gregory Ducre (18) during the second quarter at AT

Wide Receiver Cody Hoffman, Brigham Young

Height: 6’4 – Weight: 218 -  40 Speed: 4.56
2013 Stats: 57 receptions, 894 yards, five touchdowns
CBS Big Board Overall Rank: #193
Projected Draft Round: 4-5

Cowboys Angle: Hoffman is a projected late rounder who struggled in his senior season with a hamstring injury and a one-game suspension for violating team rules. But his upside is incredible as you must take into account BYU’s questionable quarterback play. Hoffman had a monster junior season when he recorded 100 receptions for 1,248 yards with 11 touchdowns. If Dallas intends on cutting veteran wideout Miles Austin after June 1st, then that leaves 5’8 Cole Beasley to fill the third receiver role. The one thing Dallas could use in it’s receiver corps is height. The 6’4 Hoffman would make a great, big target for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. One thing to watch in this Saturday’s Senior Bowl is his speed, as scouts have concerns about his ability to separate from defenders.

    Richardson also started 13 games at LT his sophomore year. God forbid anything happen to Smith but at least CR has some experience there which should increase his value to any team.

    Loving both the Ahmad Dixon and Aaron Donald choices. If anyone can get away with being a little undersized at DT, it’s a 4-3 “3-technique” that has blazing speed and explosiveness off the ball. This guy fits the bill nicely. Also, they can talk size all day, but the kid was good enough to best all other DT’s in the nation and also dominate at Senior Bowl practices. No doubt Marinelli and Kiffin have taken notice. And the never-ending motor is exactly the type of effort guy I’d love to add to our d-line and defensive mentality.

    As for Dixon, the guy oozes confidence and lays the wood to ball carriers and receivers alike. He truly caused fear in opponents just being back there in the Baylor secondary. I’d love to see a guy with his intensity and supreme confidence roaming our soft secondary. Church and Dixon would hammer guys together and be an excellent duo at safety.
