Dane Brugler, cheap No. 25 jersey,senior NFL draft analyst for NFLDraftScout.com and CBS Sports, joined the Shan & RJ show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] recently to recap the Cowboys’ draft haul. Here are some of the highlights:
On the Cowboys’ second-round pick, cheap Adoree’ Jackson jersey,CB Chidobe Awuzie (pick No. 60), whom he rated higher than Kevin King (pick No. 33), Teez Tabor (pick No. 53) and Adoree’ Jackson (pick No. 18):
Dane Brugler: “Position flexibility’s a big part of his game, cheap Titans jerseys. Safety, corner, nickel, played even a little bit of linebacker in the box. Six-foot, 200 pounds. He’s a 4.4 athlete, is a really good blitzer, can do a little bit of everything on the football field. He has some ball skills and so I think when you factor in that you can play him in the slot, you can play him outside, you can put him at the free [safety spot], you can do so many things with him and he doesn’t look out of place doing those things. A very, very intelligent player. You talk to him for five minutes and you can really understand that. And when you see him on the field, it really translates. He trusts what he sees, he processes it very quickly and he turns it into production on the football field, so, really like Awuzie, interested to see how they use him. Is he going to play an outside corner? Will he see any time at safety?
“Because I think that their next pick,cheap nfl jerseys from china, Jourdan Lewis, I think he was the best nickel corner in this draft, so I think Jourdan Lewis probably stays in the nickel. A guy who’s just over 5-10, under 190 pounds, so he’s not a big guy, but he makes up for it with his aggressiveness, his competitive attitude. There’s a lot to like about just the mean way he plays the game, and he takes offense when quarterbacks try to throw in his direction. He set Michigan records, 45 passes defended over his career. He’s a better tackler than he gets credit for, for being such a smaller corner, so I think Jourdan Lewis, he’s a tone-setter on defense and I think he’s an absolute steal in the third round.”
On the Cowboys’ fourth-round pick, WR Ryan Switzer (pick No. 133), and whether it came as a surprise, considering the talent still on the board at that point (such as TE Jake Butt):
Brugler: “Yeah, a little surprised, but I still think it was a great pick. … But [with] Switzer, the production’s not an issue. As a punt return, as a receiver, he’s North Carolina’s all-time school leader in catches and receiving yards. He matched the NCAA record with eight career punt returns for a touchdown, and so I think when you look at it on the surface, it’s like OK, well he would serve a similar role in the authentic nfl jerseys slot as Cole Beasley, but, when you look at it, I think when you go four wide, put four wide receivers on the field, he basically can serve that Lucky Whitehead role, plus be your punt returner. If I’m Lucky Whitehead, I’m out, I’m running right now because I have a lot of competition in camp to make this football team. … But with Ryan Switzer, look, he gives you some Cole Beasley insurance. I mean, let’s be honest, some of these hits that Cole Beasley has taken, you kind of held your breath for a second, ‘Is he gonna get up from that?’ So, Switzer gives you a little bit of insurance there as well. But it’s something where it was a little bit of a surprise, but I like it. This is a kid who was a running back in high school, a wide receiver when he was at North Carolina and you see both of those cheap sports jerseys elements when he touches the ball, because I’d say, while he’s similar to Cole Beasley in a lot of ways, I think he has a little bit if juice after, that he can be a little more of a creator after the catch.”
Brugler: “Definitely a few interesting names and really, the ones that kind of stood out the most for me were some of the offensive linemen because this team did not draft an offensive lineman this year, but they picked up a few interesting ones during the undrafted free agency. Michael Coe, from North Dakota, this Tennessee Titans jerseys cheap is a player who played left tackle, left guard, right tackle, center; he played everywhere in college. I think he has a chance to be kind of that versatile, do-everything interior lineman that can make this team out of training camp. Michael Coe out of North Dakota I think is a name to watch.”
