This thread is for posting links about players the Cowboys have showed interest in.
Please do not add other comments about liking this or that player. That is why it is stickied.

This thread is put up so someone can click into the thread to see who the cowboys have showed interest in or have talked with. Without having to scroll through a number of posts that do not show any links or names of players they are interested in.

I posted one name and link and there were two pages of posts that did not include one other name or link to a player they have showed interest in.

Kenny McIntosh RB Georgia​


by Drew Boylhart • December 16, 2022​



STRENGTHS
Kenny is a smooth-running back with excellent vision. He can catch the ball down the field as well as any receiver in this draft. He is the type of running back who has just enough speed and moxie to be used outside the tackles to make third downs and gain yardage when your team needs it the most. Kenny is an excellent, inside the red zone, running back because of his vision, quick feet, and lateral agility, which makes it hard to get a clean tackle on him. Throw the ball to him in the open field and those cornerbacks and safeties better bring their big boy pants to stop him. Kenny is smart and understands how to run routes and get open against zone or single coverages. He will make the tough catch with sure hands and make the contested catch in any situation. This means you can use Kenny as a running back or as a slot receiver and as a returner, on special teams.
CONCERNS
Kenny does run up high and the biggest issue with that is not power or injury, it’s leaving the ball open up to tacklers, causing him to fumble the ball. At the college, level fumbling has not been an issue for Kenny but at the next level that could change and become a big issue because of his upright style of running.
BOTTOM LINE: 1.83
If Kenny fumbles at the next level he will never see the field for any length of time to impact. When a player runs up high, teams will not even bother to tackle him and just go after the ball to make that player fumble, especially from players who are tackling from behind in the open field. I believe that even if Kenny has a problem with fumbling, he will correct it quickly because he is too smart to let that issue curtail such a promising career. Kenny’s potential to impact as a running back and receiver is dramatic and will make a team help him to work through any negative issues he might have for the first few years. He has a strong work ethic and is an excellent teammate and I believe that if he fumbles the ball in a game he will make it up the very next time he gets his hands on the ball. We all know how the NFL values the running back position and that a lot of teams do not believe in selecting a running back in the first round. That being said because Kenny can be more than just a running back and play more than one position he might surprise you fellow draftniks. We shall see. That being said, no matter what round he is selected in I expect him to impact as if he was selected in the 1st round.

Hendon Hooker QB Tennessee​


by Drew Boylhart • January 9, 2023​



STRENGTHS
Hendon is without a doubt the most athletically, talented, thrower of the ball quarterback, in this draft. He has excellent arm strength with unique accuracy to make all the throws all over the field, against any style of defense, using the whole route tree. Hendon shows on film the athletic talent to move well in the pocket and run the ball when necessary to move the chains or score touchdowns in the red zone. In spite of his athleticism, he is a proven pocket passer who can extend a play, throwing the ball from different angles as well as resetting and throwing the ball with accuracy. Hendon can also throw the ball with accuracy on the run and this makes him dangerous inside or outside of the pocket. Hendon is what all 32 teams are looking for in a potential franchise quarterback because he plays with the instincts and moxie to make a play when there is no play to make.
CONCERNS
Two issues that might set him back for teams who overthink the Draft process. He has a knee injury that might keep him from working out and was in an offense that did the play-calling and thinking before the snap for him.
BOTTOM LINE: 1.43
Hendon will have to get up to speed on reading defenses in the NFL but doesn’t every quarterback coming out have that as an issue? Not to mention, just because he was in an ego-driven coach-controlled offense that doesn’t mean that Hendon doesn’t have the ability to think for himself on the field. He shows the ability to see the whole field after the ball is snapped, throwing to the open receiver or check it down, so what else does he really need to show, some sort of Whiteboard BS, just to impress teams when he is not on the field? I say, look at the film and if you can’t see the potential then so be it. Maybe it’s you that has a problem recognizing talent when you see it. Oh, and by the way, if you can’t accept a knee injury that will need rehab while he learns the playbook, I really think you need to change jobs. Like I always say…when you see the obvious, you draft the obvious, you don’t nit-pick it to death.
