2. Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina
Javon Kinlaw possesses a 6-foot-6, 310-pound frame that would immediately make an impact for the Cowboys interior defensive line.
There are many pros to his game but the one that stands out most is his incredibly fast first step. This almost at times can be negative due to his weight getting over his toes, but at the NFL level, his technique will be addressed.
Kinlaw can play both the one-tech and the three-tech for any defensive front and with his length he does a great job of plugging gaps in the interior of the line.
Kinlaw has incredible strength in both his lower and upper body. He gets off blocks rather quick with not only his strength but with his hands. As a rusher, he uses more of a push/pull, rip style to get off blocks.
The addition of Kinlaw would finally free up the Cowboys young linebacking core and allow them to roam sideline to sideline. His presence in the interior would benefit the pass rush as well by pushing the interior of the pocket, as he did so often at South Carolina.
