    He's about 6'7 270 and it's a skinny 270.

    He's not agile and doesn't bend well but he's fast, has power, and a high motor.

    He's built for edge but i'm wondering if he can be bulked up and be a good inside rusher for us.

    Any thoughts?

    None of the draft nicks want to admit but he is a better prospect then Irving. The guy has superstar potential. I would be ecstatic if we got him in the 3rd round.

    I think he just doesn't have a position but can play everywhere.

    If he's good at rushing the passer then he is a steal after the 1st round.

    Read a tweet that he's already added 15 or 20lbs. He's one of those players who can be as good as he wanna be.

    Very Crawford looking. I don't see a lot of pass rush potential at the next level.

    Seems like no draft pundits love Rousseau.

    Are we to believe he accidentally got 15.5 sacks.

    Don’t know that I’d call him “skinny” at 270

    That’s him at Miami’s pro day. Just going by the eye test it looks like he may have already added a solid 10 lbs since he last played in 2019. No doubt adding another 15 pounds is possible, but I don’t it’s nearly as easy as it sounds. Especially while keeping his athleticism.

    I think he can be a pretty good football player, but I think he might have a better future as a 5 tech 3-4 DE. An Arik Armstead comp seems fairly realistic if things go well for Rousseau

    Calais Campbell would be another comp if he continues to add weight.

    The Cowboys would never do this but a trade down to 15 and get pick 46, then draft Phillips, Baremore and Rouseau. The defensive line would improve dramatically.

    I am not a fan of Rousseau. I heard somewhere the Cowboys like Turner. Turner looks a little stiff to me. But he had a 6.70 3-cone drill which is phenomenal. Only 6 players who had pro days - at any position - had a better 3 cone drill. He also had 36" vertical and 4.25 shuttle, 3rd best among Edge guys. So in drills, Turner is one of the most athletic Edge players in the draft despite his height. But then I watch the highlight videos, which only show his best plays and he looks like he is a little stiff in this lower body which I know is a contradiction based on his drill results. When I watch him play there are times when he looks like Michael Strahan to me.

    Didn’t notice the cowboys member there when I posted it, no. Looks like it very well could be Aiden Durde, but hard to tell

    People are down on him, I don't see why, he's a stud...in fact they're all talented on that Hurricane D-Line. Rosseau, J. Phillips and Q.Roche

    Wilson won’t make it that far.

    I personally don’t like Wilson at 75, although I’m sure some will disagree. Give me best available LB/S/OT and then Wilson at 99? Very happy with that
