6 low-key options for Cowboys that are flying under the radar in the draft
By Randy Gurzi
Cowboys low-key option No. 3: Dorian Williams, LB, Tulane
It's really hard to find too many holes in Dorian Williams' game. The Tulane linebacker is always around the football and while he's slightly undersized at 6-foot-1 and 228 pounds, he's still a well-built player who has plenty of power behind his hits.
But of course, it's draft season. So that means there will be criticism for every player. For Williams, the questions have been about his talent and in-game instincts. But as Joe Marino of the Draft Network says, he can be a special teams stand-out while he hones the rest of his game.
"Williams profiles as an impact special teamer that can provide depth at linebacker on defense. He has the physical makeup of a starter but has to get stronger, play faster, and develop instinctively to envision him as a starter at the next level. "- Joe Marion
After bringing back Leighton Vander Esch, the Cowboys don't have a major need at linebacker. With LVE as the MIKE, they will line up Micah Parsons and Damone Clark on either side. However, they lost special teams star Luke Gifford.
That's where Williams can help as a rookie but he has more than enough skill to get snaps in the base defense as well, with an eye on a starting spot in the future.
