In today’s NFL, interior linemen remain undervalued. Owner Jerry Jones wanted to add some depth in the form of Kentucky lineman Quinton Bohanna. He looks like an anchor at six feet and four inches of height dragging around 327 pounds.
Athletically, he doesn’t offer much. He rates a lowly 2.28 out of 10 for RAS, which is concerning. However, it isn’t bad when you consider what he offers. I would have loved to see how many reps of 225 pounds he can bench press, but he did not do it.
Nothing stands out when you look at his stats. The most tackles in one season Bohanna racked up was 18 back in 2019. That’s because his job is taking away space to help his teammates to finish the play.
The Dallas Cowboys needed a big-body lineman to clog the run game. That is what Bohanna will do as he has done at Kentucky. It may take some time for him to adjust to NFL-level skill and strength, but I’m sure he will hold up well.
The Cowboys needed an interior lineman to do what Quinton Bohanna excels at doing. He won’t see the field much, at least in year one, but will see some on goal-line stands and fourth down plays. It sucks he doesn’t offer more, but it’s good value for a sixth-round pick.
