2. Perrion Winfrey, Defensive Tackle, Oklahoma
No player helped themselves more during the Senior Bowl game than Oklahoma’s Perrion Winfrey. On Saturday, Winfrey recorded five tackles, three tackles for loss, and two sacks. He showed dominance in the Senior Bowl that he did not show most of his season at Oklahoma.
The Cowboys have been looking for a good defensive tackle for years and after drafting Osa Odighizuwa last year, they could pair Winfrey with the current Cowboy to make a formidable duo. The Cowboys selected Trysten Hill and Neville Gallimore on day two of the draft in the last few years, and they are still waiting for them to have a big impact.
Winfrey is 6-4, 297 pounds, and is quite athletic for his size. He used that athleticism at Oklahoma to play multiple positions and record 5.5 sacks along with 11.5 tackles for loss. He needs continued development as a pass rusher but he uses his hands effectively and executed swim moves/bull-rushes during some of the Senior Bowl drills.
Keep an eye on the Sooner on draft day as he will most likely be a day-two pick and could be a welcome addition to the Cowboys defensive line.
