In the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft, at pick #254, the Dallas Cowboys select…
Terrance Mitchell, Cornerback, Oregon

Weight: 192 lbs.
40 Speed/Bench: 4.52/08
2013 Numbers: 59 tackles, 5 ints, 1 TD
Player Breakdown: Mainly a cover corner. Very confident player who is an excellent athlete. Will gamble and bait quarterbacks for big plays. Decent tackler that needs to be more consistent. Too grabby with receivers.
Cowboys Analysis: Will compete with 2013 fifth round pick cornerback B.W. Webb for that fourth back-up role. Will provide Webb with much needed push.
