There is only one tackle that I really like on any practice squad...
- Currently on the Patriots practice squad.
He's being paid a premium on the Patriots practice squad. Patriots pay some players higher on their PS that may drawn interest. He's won some early 'practice player of the week awards' on the Pats. I believe that the Center they were also paying a premium to is now on the Panthers.
You may or may not find a whole lot about him via internet searches, though I'll give my personal analysis for what it's worth...
In my opinion, Matt Kopa would be a great fit here. He's a beast with quick burst, excellent technique, fluid, agile, great hand technique and extremely smart, young with 2+ years in the NFL, great work ethic. Huge wingspan, solid core strength, big dude who also excelled in basketball in High School.
Also played Defensive End and even special teams.
The Cowboys really need this dude in my opinion.
