#2 – Sidney Jones, CB, University of Washington
It’s no secret that the Dallas Cowboys need help in the secondary. Couple that with the fact that the team is likely losing both starting corners from 2016, and cornerback all of a sudden seems like a position of dire need.
Sidney Jones could revive the Cowboys depleted secondary. For years the Cowboys have lacked a legitimate shutdown, playmaking corner on the outside. To revive the defense, they will need one to lead the secondary.
To see how Jones fits that role, I’ll turn to Rob Rang of CBS Sports:
"“Jones shows very good route anticipation, working to keep himself between the quarterback and receiver. He shows impressive confidence and poise with the ball in the air, trusting his athleticism and technique. Jones reads the receiver, turning to locate the ball and showing excellent ballskills for the interception, including the ability to make the one-handed circus catch.”"
After reading his analysis, I watched the former Huskie myself and I saw the same things. With the recent news of Brandon Marshall joining the New York Giants, the Cowboys will need top flight cover corners to survive their own division.
Putting a star on Jones’ helmet would be a sight for sore eyes in the Dallas secondary.
