You ever heard of Dwayne Robertson? A bigí ol defensive tackle from Kentucky who was going to be the next Warren Sapp?
Yeah, thatís the guy Bill Parcells actually wanted to draft back in 2003, his first year with the team in his first draft as Cowboys head coach. It didnít work out though. Robertson went to the Jets at No. 4, one pick before Dallas. The Cowboys ended up with Terence Newman.
No, Newman never really lived up to those expectations. He was a starter, always a good player but never really great, although he made two Pro Bowls. It was probably about eight shy of the expectations when youíre drafted that high.
However, when I look back on his career, even though they couldnít have arrived on the scene any differently, I canít help but compare Newman to Everson Walls. Yes, Newman was a first-round pick and Walls was an undrafted rookie from Grambling.
Still, their two careers have a lot of resemblances, especially how things ended here in Dallas.
