The Cowboys are a good football team, but when it comes to getting physical, winning at the point of attack, and pushing piles we seem to struggle. The philosophy of this draft is to help cure that problem. 1. David DeCastro G Stanford 6'5" 310lbs rJr Two years, two significant injuries to Romo and inconsistency running the ball. So for the second straight year we get an OL in the first round. DeCastro reminds me athletically of Tyron Smith. He is very light on his feet, has good agility in all directions, and plays until the whistle blows. He moves like he's 285, but they run right behind him an awful lot and he caves in his side pretty well. 2. Chase Minnifield CB Virgina 6'0" 185lbs Sr 2011 Stats: 5 games, 23 tackles, 4 TFL, 1.5 Sacks, 1 Int, 4 PBU Minnifield has the height to better match up agaisnt big NFL receivers, he is a ballhawk, and he isn't afraid to come up and make a hit. Most years he would be a first round CB, but with the possible flood of underclass talent this year we could get very lucky. 3. Kwame Geathers NT Georgia 6'6" 350lbs rSo 2011 Stats: 5 games, 6 tackles, 1 PBU, 1 QBH Our DL is ok right now. They are good against the run because they are good at getting off of blocks and diagnosing plays, but in short yardage they go backwards far too often. Geathers is only a redshirt sophomore, but with the Richt turmoil in Athens he may decide to make the jump to avoid the mess. His stats don't look great, but his impact on the game isn't easy to see in the box score. The Cowboys never seem to be interested, but I think this could be a good addition to the middle of our front 7. 4. Donnie Fletcher CB Boston College 6'1" 195lbs Sr 2011 Stats: 4 games, 15 tackles, 1 PBU Fletcher is a leader on and off the field, and he's got lots of starting experience. He is one of the taller corners in this year's draft and he won't shy away from contact. He also shows a high tolerance for pain and ability to play through injuries. Hopefully with 2 more CBs in the mix, we can have a quality competition next year and have real depth at the position. 5. Bryan Quick WR Appalachian St 6'4" 216lb rSr 2011 Stats: 5 games, 26 catches, 384 yards, 4 TDs Quick is a prep basketball player that only played 1 year of HS football so he is just scratching the surface of his talent. He has the hands, leaping ability, and body control of a basketball player. In today's passing league, you can never have enough potential playmakers. 6. George Bryan TE NC State 6'5" 265lbs rSr 2011 Stats: 5 games, 9 catches, 95 yards, 1 TD Martellus Bennett's contract expires this year and barring something amazing I don't see him returning. Bryan isn't going to impress anyone with his athleticism, but with Russell Wilson as his QB he was quite a pass catching threat. He hasn't been as busy this year, but he is still almost big enough to be an extra lineman and can add an extra push in the run game. 7. Frank Alexander DE/OLB Oklahoma 6'3" 255lbs rSr 2011 Stats: 4 games, 22 tackles, 3.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 1 INT, 3 PBU, 4 QBH With the exception of Victor Butler, the Cowboys haven't had much luck in finding LBs to back up Spencer and Ware. If Alexander is still here he could find a way to stick. He is always near the ball making plays.
