Going small school, though, doesn’t necessarily mean NFL teams are avoiding the kind of trouble that exists at bigger schools.
Longhorns wide receiver Marquise Goodwin had just 26 catches as a senior in Austin, but his speed and athleticism give scouts reason to think he’ll be more productive in the NFL.
The Cowboys are clearly in need of defensive pressure players, whether in free agency or the draft. As of now, it appears there will be slim pickings among edge rushers when free agency opens on March 13.
The NFL Combine is underway in Indianapolis and owners and coaches are watching the hopefuls being put through their paces, hoping to score a deal and fill some holes in their lineups.
The events of Sunday at the combine pretty much take Dallas out of the running for the best QB prospect in this draft not named Luck or Griffin.
If you thought it was impossible for NFL people to fall more in love with Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, you thought wrong.
Griffin says he was listed at 6-4 and 200 pounds in high school and has been accused of shrinking and gaining weight since then.
Robert Griffin III is one of the interesting athletes at this year’s NFL combine. He’s a big-time athlete whose stock can only go up as the draft approaches.
It may seem far off but the Cowboys are already in the planning stages and getting set for the 2012 season.
