    Round 4, Pick 13: Dallas Cowboys select David Arkin, OL from Missouri State

    The Cowboys get a sleeper interior lineman whose combination of strength and athleticism gives him starting potential.
    Lande
    The Cowboys take a gamble on this small-school player, who has the quickness, speed and athleticism to be effective blocking in space. He played guard and tackle at Missouri State and could play either position in the NFL. To become a starter, he will need to greatly improve his hand use and strength. He is a good small-school prospect with nice upside.


    2011 NFL Draft Picks: Cowboys Select David Arkin, T/G, Missouri State - Beefing Up The Line
    by Dave Halprin on Apr 30, 2011 11:55 AM CDT in Dallas Cowboys 2011 Draft
    78 comments Email Print.With the #110 pick in the NFL draft (#13 in the 4th round), the Dallas Cowboys selected offensive lineman David Arkin from Missouri State. A tackle at a lower-level school, Arkin will likely move inside to guard. A versatile guy that could swing between tackle and guard if needed. Versatile is a word that goes with Arkin. 6' 5", 300 lbs. Wasn't projected by most services to go this high in the draft.

    The best review I found was from Scott Wright at NFL Draft Countdown, he had him as his #8 guard:

    Strengths:
    Has experience at guard and tackle. Great size. Thick thighs. Adequate strength and lateral quickness. Had a strong showing at the East-West Shrine Game. Anchors well. Has strong hands and uses them quickly. Does a good job of sustaining blocks.
    Weaknesses:
    Struggled early in the year at a new position as he would keep a poor base when drive blocking, didn’t always finish, and was too high on first contact to the second level. Needs to bend more. Lunges at defenders on the second level. Needs to get stronger.
    Outlook:
    Arkin has dominated his entire career at MSU and is one of the most versatile linemen in this draft with good tape at both tackle and guard for at least one full season. I like his ability to swing from guard and tackle as a backup early in his career and believe he could eventually start at guard with improved strength and some coaching. His ability at both positions could draw him up boards as high as 4th or 5th round.

    Draft Scout David Arkin News
    03/19/11 - David Arkin looked around his old college football stomping ground and smiled. "The evaluations are pretty much over. Now I can breathe a little bit," Arkin said Friday after Missouri State's second annual "Pro Day" at Plaster Sports Complex. Arkin and seven others put their skills on display in front of representatives from 14 National Football League teams on a brisk, windy morning. Arkin and fellow former MSU offensive lineman Jake Duron drew special attention from Andy Heck, offensive line coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Arkin said he doesn't want to speculate about where he might be selected in the NFL draft April 28-30. "I'm just gonna let the chips fall," Arkin said. "I probably won't even watch the draft. "Hopefully I'll get the call at some point, but there's no way I'm going to be able to sit there for three days and agonize." - Lyndal Scranton, News-Leader.com

    Analysis
    Positives: Plays with attitude. Flies to the ball and never shies away from contact. Is a willing run defender who throws his small frame at ballcarriers and can deliver a big hit. Has nice body control and can contort himself midair to make a play on the ball. Shows good balance in his stance and takes a quick first step off the ball. Uses above-average closing speed to make up for mistakes and break on the football. Does not lose acceleration when changing direction and keeps his balance when coming in and out of cuts. Is at his best in off-man coverage when he can keep the play in front of him. Jumps well and flashes the awareness to deflect passes against bigger receivers. Has started since his freshman season and has plenty of experience. Won a team award for his community service in the Buffalo area.

    Negatives: Undersized and can be overwhelmed by big-bodied pass-catchers. Will take false steps when playing press coverage and tends to lunge at receivers when asked to jam. Takes lots of chances and can give up the big play while looking for an interception or monster hit. Trusts his speed too much at times and takes poor angles to the ball. Will lower his head when tackling and can miss ball-carriers entirely when looking for the big hit. Gets feet tangled up when asked to play press man coverage and can pushed around by larger receivers at the line. Does not get off blocks well. Gets caught looking into the backfield and allows craftier receivers to get behind him. Suffered a concussion as a sophomore.

    Josh Thomas: one of UB's best players
    Updated: Monday, 18 Apr 2011, 6:33 PM EDT
    Published : Monday, 18 Apr 2011, 6:33 PM EDT

    John Murphy
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - One of the UB Bulls best players last year is expected to be selected in the NFL draft in two weeks.

    The University at Buffalo has been sending players to the NFL, like James Starks and Naaman Roosevelt. So why not Josh Thomas? The UB cornerback is expected to be drafted in the mid-rounds.

    Thomas started 24-games for the UB Bulls and always lined up against the opponents top receiver. He thinks he has some things to offer an NFL team.

    2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

    person
    Josh Thomas, CB, Buffalo
    As a freshman in 2007, Josh Thomas was forced into a starting role when another cornerback went down with an injury. In all he started four games that year and played in 11 total. Despite his inexperience, Thomas did a solid job, tallying 45 tackles, four pass break-ups and an interception. The following season Thomas stepped into a starting role, but lost it by the end of the year. However, Thomas still played relatively well and totaled 57 tackles and forced three fumbles.
    Thomas did not emerge as a consistent performer as an upperclassman, but he still started ten games in 2009 and had another quality campaign. He broke up nine passes, forced yet another fumble and tallied 45 tackles. The numbers in 2010 were quite similar. Yet again Thomas lacked consistency, but was around to make some big plays too. He also did a little more blitzing during his senior campaign and did a fine job getting into the backfield and getting to the quarterback or stopping a rush attempt.

    Thomas is an interesting cornerback. He was on Buffalo's track team and has a lot of speed. But he is not simply a speedy corner; Thomas has plenty of toughness about him. He may not be the strongest corner, but he certainly does not shy away from contact and he will always plays with a healthy amount of physicality. Thomas can lay out some big hits as well and he will be a nice addition to any NFL team in the sixth or seventh round.

    Round 5, Pick 12: Dallas Cowboys select Josh Thomas, CB from Buffalo

    Iyer
    The Cowboys have some speedy defensive backs, but here's a tougher, stronger one. They also might lose Orlando Scandrick.
    Strengths: Is a competitive player against the run who is not afraid to take on much bigger blockers. Consistently maintains outside leverage on stretch plays, and effectively uses his quickness to keep blockers from engaging. Plays with a solid base in man coverage, which allows him to transition fluidly out of his backpedal without losing a step on his man.

    Weaknesses: Looks smaller on film than his measured size, and consequently struggles against bigger, physical receivers. Lacks the athleticism to close and recover while in man and zone coverage, and does not flash the deep speed needed to be consistent in man press. Has a bad habit of guessing and opening up his hips too early, leaving him susceptible to double moves. Struggles to break down and finish tackles, and consistently plays out of control against the run.

    Harris Selected By Cowboys In Sixth Round

    WR/RS Becomes East Carolina's Fifth NFL Draft Selection In Last Three Years

    April 30, 2011

    Harris bio (PDF) http://www.ecupirates.com/photos/schools/ecu/sports/m-footbl/auto_pdf/HarrisDwayneECUBio07-10.pdf

    GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina wide receiver and return specialist Dwayne Harris was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the sixth round (176th overall) of the 2011 National Football League Draft Saturday.

    Harris is the eighth ECU receiver in history to be drafted and immediately follows defensive end C.J. Wilson, who was taken by the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers in the seventh round of last year's draft after defensive tackle Linval Joseph and punter Matt Dodge were selected earlier by the New York Giants.

    The Pirates have had at least one player chosen in the last six consecutive years and in 17 of the past 22 drafts.

    Harris, who was a first-team all-conference selection as a wide receiver and punt returner in 2010, set Pirate single-season records with 1,123 receiving yards and 101 receptions. He became one of only three ECU pass catchers to ever record over 1,000 receiving yards in a year and the only one with 90 or more grabs during a season. In his final campaign, Harris led C-USA in receptions per game (7.8) while standing third in receiving yards per game (86.4) and all-purpose yards per game (176.0), and fourth in punt return average (11.7). Among all 2010 FBS players, he ranked fourth in all-purpose yards per game and sixth in receptions per game. Harris also finished in the top 25 at the FBS level in total reception yards (15th), receiving yards per game (18th) and punt return yards per game (21st).

    2011 NFL Draft Picks: Cowboys Select Shaun Chapas, FB, Georgia
    by Dave Halprin on Apr 30, 2011 5:02 PM CDT in Dallas Cowboys 2011 Draft

    http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2011...-picks-cowboys-select-shaun-chapas-fb-georgia

    [IMG]

    With the 220th pick overall (18th in the 7th round), the Dallas Cowboys selected fullback Shaun Chapas from Georgia. Not much of a runner, a willing blocker, and by some accounts, a very able blocker.

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    The captain for Georgia last season, Chapas is a snap-to-whistle player, relying more on effort and guile than skill and talent. While he has the prototypical size to be a fullback in the NFL, he does not have the advanced receiving skills to be versatile enough for the H-back position. Chapas, though, is one of those players who will churn out a needed yard or two. His biggest strength is his initial impact as a blocker, often driving the opponent back, and maintains that aggressiveness throughout the play. A coach's player, Chapas will likely be a late-round selection and a good bet to stick on a roster as a special teams player or be stashed on a practice squad.

    Wes Bunting

    A taller fullback prospect who exhibits impressive flexibility and overall bend when asked to sit into his stance. Possesses an average first step when pressing the hole, but exhibits good body control and instincts as a lead blocker. Does a nice job quickly locating his target and deciphering information inside. Lacks ideal power/pop on contact and isn't a guy who will consistently overwhelm defenders off the football. But is strong enough to initially create enough of a surge to seal his man from the play. Does a nice job breaking down in tight quarters, extending his arms and sealing on perimeter runs. Also, drops his pad level well into contact and looks natural cutting down defenders off his frame in space.

A coach's player, Chapas will likely be a late-round selection and a good bet to stick on a roster as a special teams player or be stashed on a practice squad.

    Nagy is one of what is believed to be about 20 players who made visits to the Packers in the weeks leading up to Thursday's draft. The Packers usually only bring in players they're going to draft in the late rounds or are going to try to sign in free agency after the seven rounds are over.

    The post-draft operation has been given as much attention as the draft itself under general manager Ted Thompson, whose scouts have shown a tremendous ability to flush talent out of the bushes. Last year was the zenith of their success, pulling two major contributors (Sam Shields and Frank Zombo) as well as a budding prospect (Nick McDonald) out of the group of draft leftovers.

    The 6-2 7/8, 302-pound Nagy, a native of Hudson, Ohio, isn't sure if he'll be drafted, which is normal for a player of his stature. But by virtue of his visit to the Packers and the Chicago Bears, he knows there's interest in him being part of the NFL in 2011.

    Dallas Cowboys 2011 Draft Grades: Did ‘Boys Find Value?
    Jonathan Bales
    http://dallascowboystimes.com/2011/04/dallas-cowboys-2011-draft-grades-did-boys-find-value/
    I posted a few articles on my thoughts regarding the Cowboys’ first three draft selections, but this will be my initial analysis of their late-round picks. After a tremendous start to the draft and a questionable second day, I think the Cowboys found some really talented young players today in rounds four through seven. Here are my grades. . .

    Round 1: Tyron Smith, OT, USC

    In my initial article on the selection of Smith, I stated how I see him as the future of offensive tackles in the NFL. His athleticism and upside are incredible, and his versatility will be valuable to Dallas. I know some of you aren’t as high on Smith as me (he was No. 6 overall on my board), but I think he has legit Pro Bowl potential. He will be a left tackle sooner rather than later.

    Draft 2011: Third Day Live Blog

    Cowboys 4th Round pick David Arkin
    6:24 -- The Dallas Cowboys finish their draft day by picking Wisconsin offensive lineman Bill Nagy.

    The NFL Network, by chance, had Wisconsin head coach Brent Bielema on set when Nagy was picked. He described his guy as a lineman who missed a season after injuring a foot. Nagy played a variety of blocking spots for the team -- tight end, guard and center. He's 300 plus pounds and strong.

    Nagy tested well at the Badgers pro day and offers Dallas another interior offensive line developmental option. Bielema named center as Nagy's best position.

    4:55 -- The Dallas Cowboys select FB Shaun Chapas from Georia. Here's the fullback. The fourth fullback on the board and one the Cowboys clearly preferred to Henry Hynoski. He's another solid member what appears to be a solid fullback class. It does appear that all the Cowboys picks thus far have a legitimate chance to make the team. Chapas will give Chris Gronkowski a run for his job.

    Thought I'd share some Draft facts with you. I just finished updating the Roster series thread to reflect these Draft picks. I don't add them to the roster until they actually make the team.

    #9. Tyron Smith, OT, USC.
    He is the 13th player we've drafted from USC. The last was Buehler in 2009

    #40. Bruce Carter, LB, North Carolina. He is the 7th player we've drafted from North Carolina, but the first since Ebenezer Ekuban in 1999.

    #71. DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma.
    He is the 10th player we have drafted from Oklahoma. The last was Manuel Johnson in 2009.

    #110. David Arkin, OL, Missouri St.
    He is the first player we have ever drafted from Missouri State and is only the 2nd player ever drafted from that school, the first was an Eagles pick last year.

    #143. Joshua Thomas, DB, Buffalo.
    He is the first player we've ever drafted from Buffalo, and the 9th player ever taken form that school.

    #176. Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina. He is the 5th player we've taken from East Carolina. The last was Robert Jones in 1992, a 1st rounder for us.

    #220. Shaun Chapas, FB, Georgia. The 10th player we've selected from Georgia. The last was Bruce Thornton in 2004.

    #252. Bill Nagy, C, Wisconsin. He is the 5th player we've taken from Wisconsin. The last was Al Johnson in 2003. He was 2 picks away from being the Cowboys 3rd player ever as Mr. Irrelevant.
  13. Arch Stanton

    Jason Garrett breaks down Day 3

    Bill Nagy: "A guy who, going into the 2009 season, was going to be a starter, got into a moped accident, and wasn’t able to play that year. Became a backup going into this year because the guy who took his place became an established player. He got a chance due to injury to play about half the games this year, and really did a nice job. As an offensive lineman, you like how he plays, he jumps out at you when watch him, how he finishes, how he plays with intensity and tenacity. We really liked him as well. He’s a very athletic guy too, he ran about as well as any of the interior linemen in the draft."
