This week, let's break down the top several defensive tackles that we have all been looking at for the top of the 2014 NFL draft. Now, before we dive in too deep, we need to offer a few thoughts right off the top. One regarding the most talked about player in the mix for the entire draft and the other about scheme fits and finding a glove that properly fits the hand.
The Stars are headed to the trade deadline in 8 days (March 5) with a hold of the 8th playoff position by the slightest of fingernails. They have 24 games to go, they have plenty of room under the cap, and they sure seem enthusiastic at making as serious a run as they possibly can to get to the finish line.
Today's blog is purely informational as during the NFL Scouting Combine I receive lots of inquiries about how well a certain player did in a certain event so you have something to compare each participant to as we go.
We continue our weekly series of player evaluations for the 2014 draft with a strong batch of safeties. Last week, we grabbed defensive tackles and worked our way through 6 who have a chance to be Top 50 picks, and now we want to look at 7 different safeties who all are regarded as strong prospects in the right situation or scenario.
I want to make sure we get back in the habit now with football season over of the end of the week Cowboys mailbag that can cover all things Cowboys, all things draft, or, of course, all things Cowboys' draft.
Now we are in the phase of player evaluations by position. I am not sure how far into the positions we will go, but I definitely want to hit defensive tackles, defensive ends, safeties, offensive tackles, offensive interior, and quarterbacks.
