Let him learn to block so he can be a FB and get on the field a lot more.
Yeah, they brought Jackson in after the draft, and I agree that they might have concerns about Elliott, because the Cowboys are loaded. Hell, take Zeke out and IMO the group of Smith, Bo, Austin and Jackson, with that OL, is still better than some teams!
Lots of competition at every position bodes well for the cowboys.
We took Bo in the 7th. No one took him before us. I don't see a long line for him or Jackson to put on a 53. We cut both and take our chances to get them back on the PS. If we lose one, we've got the other.
Every team has players they liked better in the 6th and 7th, who they're cutting and hoping to get back on their practice squads.
I see Bo making the 53 man roster. But in order for him to suit up each Sunday, he'll need to contribute on special teams.
I don't think so. Dallas doesn't have another back like him. That big, that physical, and that mean,he'll make the 53. He'll play and he will force a lot of defensive people to make a lot of business decisions.
I don't see him making the team.
I dunno, Alabama players just never seems to make it in the NFL (a small handful are OK)...different "rules" in college in the SEC? you know, like they can't take the same vitamins in the NFL that they likely feed those dummies from the SEC (most interviews you can't tell that they have an education)....I am hopeful for this guy, but thought it REALLY curious why no NFL teams wanted him in the first 6 rounds? this looks like a version of what Dallas normally does with 2nd round picks - take a chance and see what happens - not a bad move fo the 7th round
then go Bo....lets not forget about darius Jackson...
with that said, I still don't see Bo as a shoe in for the 53....
Definitely not a shoe in. Actually gonna be hard for him. I think the staff likes Jackson and that’s why he was brought back. BO could get poached if shows something in preseason. Jackson has already been poached before but I think he got injured or he would likely be on another team still.
Easy. He was a part time RB in college w/ injury issues. Highly unlikely he'll be a bellcow. Teams are looking for starters, not rotational players in the early rounds.
Depends on what he shows in the preseason.
Bo is amazingly quick to and through the hole for a big guy. If he explodes through the hole as if appears he may be able to, forget PS if we want to keep him.
It’s the injuries that are concerning. We have Jackson and Rod that is proven backup quality. If Bo is better than them will they chance the injury factor. I am guessing so since they drafted him.
Bo is better than them.
Why did they bring Jackson in after the draft? Competition?
He looks like a more athletic Brandon Jacobs to me
True. At Alabama, they let them take Basketweaving and Badminton.
Big Stupid Jacobs! The Dallashating bigmouth that whined about getting leg tackled!
Oooooohh, that would be awesome!!!! Jacobs was a beast and a very effective RB. We can only hope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
