If you haven't noticed,Cowboys have a fondness for Boise State players. Here is Jabril Frazier .
Some say he’s a mashup between Jabril Peppers and Kavon Frazier.
Is there a Boise style of tackling?
Or am I projecting?
Is this guy in this year’s draft? I haven’t heard of him. If so he’s probably being projected as a 3-4 OLB. I’ve been all over the DE’s.
Draftek has him listed.
Weird. Apparently he wasn’t at the combine either.
Not much out there on him other than from last year. This was before the start of the '18 college season.
'JABRIL FRAZIER, DE: Frazier has an NFL body that scouts love, and he finally stayed healthy enough to show some production in 2017. The 6-4, 236-pound Frazier was a second-team all-Mountain West selection in 2017 after finishing with six sacks, two forced fumbles and 33 tackles while playing only mostly in passing situations. NFL teams are enamored by his size and wingspan, and a strong 2018 season could put him solidly in consideration to get drafted.'
And these guys have him ranked as the 31st best DE in this year's draft.
And CBS has him listed under 'Projects Worthy of a Roster Spot'.
I'm cool with using a 6th or 7th rounder on this guy but God forbid don't waste this 1st pick, in the 2nd round, on ANOTHER project.
don't forget about David Moa,DE-Boise St and CB Tyler Horton.
there are some Boise St guys in this class.
3-4 OLB. Doesn't play with his hand on the ground
4th round comp pick confirmed.
He wins with hand usage and the ability to avoid being pushed wide more than with speed/quickness.
He’s OK but we can do better at end.
I've seen this kid play. He doesn't have the bend or the quickness you might look for from a rush end in the NFL. He's not big enough to hold up against the run so to me, he's a tweener with not enough burst and not enough sand. He does use his hands pretty well but I don't know if that gets him to the rotation or not. He could be a special teams guy perhaps. Honestly, I think he's an OLB in the NFL.
Let's just say Andy Avolos didn't do him any favors playing him off the line...and in space 1/2 the time. He's under-rated as a pass rusher. He just didn't get that many chances last year.
Don't think Lawerence...
I think in the right scheme...he could be a situational type rusher that would give you 5-6 sacks a year.
100% disagree here. His most productive year, IMO, was last year when he got way more snaps as a LB. I don't see him as a DE in the NFL. Now, as a LB, that's a different story IMO.
I don't see him getting drafted. He could be a priority free agent, especially for this team who never met a Boise State player they didn't like.
Moa is going back for another year after getting another year of eligibility.
Frazier is likely a UDFA.
If we draft a Boise State player, it will likely be Mattison as a change of pace for Zeke on day 3.
didn't know that about Moa...thanks.
Mattison was brought up by Brugler on The Draft Show last week.
I like him...solid player.
