    As some of you know, the cowboys looked at 2 OT's a few weeks ago with dez bryant, Jason Fox was one of those players.



    Jason Fox, Miami
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 310.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.10.
    Projected Round (2010): 2-4.
    1/18/10: There's a lot of concern here. First, Jason Fox just had knee surgery. Second, he missed the final game of the regular season with an irregular heartbeat. Teams may shy away from this suddenly risky prospect.

    10/24/09: Anchoring upstart Miami's offensive line. Projects as a left tackle.

    2/9/09: Missed some time with a leg injury as a junior.

    7/27/08: An athletic left tackle who has been a starter for Miami ever since he arrived on campus

    I'm sure everyone knows, yeah. It's going to hurt his stock for sure.

    What are the odds that you and some internet scout know but the Cowboys don't?

    Had no idea, he may actually fall to us in the 2nd now.

    If so I say take him, he is a GREAT player worth the risk.

    I figured they knew, but just was double checking.

    He's from Ft. Worth and we need OL.

    They will do their due dilligence.

    Good player.

    Irregular heartbeat just scares me, remember the QB I think his name was Joey Harrington, he had a irregular heartbeat too.

    Just didnt want the cowboys to waste their draft pick for a player that may not be in the NFL very long.

    Worth the risk King Joe. A LATE 2nd round pick for someone who has elite prospect talent

    Fox could become an elite tackle, how many players have irregular heartbeats? more than likely quite a decent sum. It effects a small portion of those with it in a negative way.

    No thanks. He's not worth a 2nd round pick.

    actually i dont think there are many players with that issue. Some of the ones that do, have had problems early in their careers. Didn't Gaines Adams RIP just pass from a heart problem?

    There may be some that just we don't know about because its not a problem.


    Fox is just one of those players that have it.

    I'll take a Fox/Iupati/Gurode/Davis/Free line any day of the week. Ya'll want a dominate running game, with that line you'll be getting 6+Yards a carry. Short yardage situations won't be obvious run behind Leonard, we got a choice Leonard or Iupati, want a screen? Free and Fox have some athleticism

    thanks hostile, i figured they did, but its always better to me to ask and know then be sorry later for not asking and getting the word out there;

    see the part that scared me, the cowboys looked at jason fox about a month ago, knowing like you said about his heart condition, that to me is scary if your willing to take a player that early in the draft

    im sure you all remember when we drafted jacob rogers and the scouts told parcells NO, dont do it;

    He will be one of the most scrutinized OTs at the Combine because of the irregular heartbeat. To my knowledge that was a one game thing. Fear on the part of teams could make him a 4th round steal.

    If this guy had a broken toe nail, the entire NFL would know.

    cool, so he isnt having an irregular heart beat now hostile? cool, he could be a steal in the 4th round like when we got doug free a few years back if you remember doug free was coming off of a foot fracture, so he fell some in the draft too and his small college experience

    thanks for info hostile
