2. Kyle Dugger | Lenoir-Rhyne | Safety | 51st overall
Once again, Ashtyn Davis from California was on the board. This time around, Kyle Dugger was available for the Cowboys. Tagged up with cornerback Trevon Diggs, the Dallas Cowboys have two immediate starters in the defensive backfield.
Dugger played four seasons Lenoir-Rhyne. He turned 24 last month. He stands at six-foot-one, 217 pounds. The safety ran a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash. His vertical jump was 42.0 inches and his final broad jump was 134.0 inches.
The Decatur, GA native packs speed and size. He’s an athletic player who can line up all over the field, including slot packages. His size and ability make him a favorite to cover tight ends, which was something Byron Jones did during his time in Dallas.
According to Lenoir-Rhyne official athletics site, Dugger played in 42 collegiate games. He earned 237 total tackles, 10 picks, 36 pass deflections, six forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries, and two blocks.
As a punt return specialist, things get interesting. Dugger might be a favorite for new special teams coach, John Fassel. Dugger recorded 67 returns for 929 yards. He scored six touchdowns, averaging 13.9 yards a pop.
