Cowboys Headlines - Draft Prospects and Strategies for Quaaterbacks

This is the last of my position by position review of the players and strategies that the Cowboys will be analyzing. Of course we saved the best for last and today we will look at the QB prospects.

If you have read my previous articles, you know that I expected the Cowboys to add a free agent for the backup QB role. Since most of the viable free agents are taken, it looks more and more like the Cowboys will take a QB in the draft with an early pick.

Before we look at the various prospects, here are some of the attributes that are important when analyzing the QB position. Typically I look at:

  1. Accuracy – Can they consistently put the ball where they want to put it
  2. Intelligence – Do they understand what the offense is trying to do
  3. Pre-Snap Read – Do they understand what the defense is doing before the ball is snapped
  4. Vision – Do they see what the defense is doing during the play
  5. Calmness – Does the game slow down for them
  6. Pocket Presence – Do they feel pressure, move up in pocket and keep eyes downfield
  7. Arm Strength – Can the make all of the throws
  8. Quick Release – Does the ball get out of their hands quickly
  9. Leader – Does the team rally around them. Do they trust and are confident in the QB
  10. Character/Work Ethic – Are they the right kind of guy

Now let’s take a look at some of the prospects that will be available to the boys.

  • Above average arm strength

Weaknesses

  • His weakness is lack of consistency and accuracy throwing the ball. This inconsistency begins with his footwork
  • Needs to learn to throw the entire route tree
  • Pre-determines which route to throw pre-snap. Causes him to miss open receivers and throw into double coverage.

Summary

    • Should have a long term career in the NFL, but will probably be a career backup.
    • Athletically he is as god as anyone, but needs to focus on his mechanics and reads in pass game
    • He does provide a weapon on short downs and goal lines.For Cowboys, he would be Romo’s backup eventually but not sure he is the long term replacementI have him rated as a top 90 player

  • Good technique and footwork
  • Can move in pocket to buy time
  • Will give his receivers opportunities to make plays
  • Durable
  • Competitive and resilient

Weaknesses

  • Is awful throwing the deep patterns. I saw three games where he did not complete a pass that travelled over 20 yards. Much better in screen and slant game.
  • Will just have throws that sail on him for no reason. Has far too many of these. Accuracy is an issue.
  • Has good footwork until he gets in trouble and then bails out.
  • Needs better movement skills in pocket.
  • Does not see field well. No progression.
  • Predetermines throws before he leaves the huddle. Too many open receivers missed.

Summary

    • A risk/reward pick. It is hard to grade him because I have not seen another QB being hit as often as he was. Think he is getting into bad techniques because of pounding.
    • Could be an eventual starter in the NFL, but will need to rebuild him. He needs to begin with the basics and work his way through defenses.
    • Has the physical and leadership skills, but does he have the timing, accuracy, and consistency needed?
    • For Cowboys, if he improves he would potential be Romo’s replacement, but that is a long shot.
    • I have him as a top 120 player

Cardale Jones

Strengths

  • Big man, hard to arm tackle
  • Strong arm. They call him 12 gauge, what else do you need to know about his arm strength
  • Good touch for a big arm. Throws a catchable ball.
  • Remains calm in the pocket, he does not panic
  • Can scramble when he needs to. No Cam, but effective.
  • Gives a team a short and goal line threat immediately
  • Confident, will give his receivers opportunities
  • Traditional NFL QB with vertical offense

Weaknesses

  • Waits to long to throw deep ball. He thinks he is going to out throw the receiver and because of this he waits too long to let it go. Too many deep balls wind up woefully short
  • Waits until receiver is open to throw it. Usually too late by then. Needs to get feel for throwing receiver open.
  • Determines who he is throwing to in huddle way too often. Is not progressing through reads
  • Will force throws because of arm strength. Most make it through, but there are a few that….
  • Can lock eyes onto receivers
  • Throws off balance too often

Summary

    • A risk/reward pick. My have the most upside of any pick, but also has the highest risk of failing
    • Could be an eventual starter in the NFL, but will need a lot of work understanding the offense and learning to progress through reads
    • Has the physical skills, but does he have the timing, accuracy, and ability to read defenses?
    • He is the QB with the most upside in the draft. If I were the Cowboys, he is who I would try to get and see if you can fix his flaws and improve his strengths.
    • Needs to improve to be potential Romo replacement
    • I have him as a top 130 player

Brandon Allen

Strengths

  • Intangibles. A leader that team rallies behind.
  • Never feels out of the game. Confident no matter the score.
  • Throws with accuracy and anticipation.
  • Uses eyes well. Keeps safeties at bay, can progress from route to route.
  • Remains calm in the pocket, he does not panic.
  • Has feel for when to scramble and make a big play
  • Throws a very catchable ball
  • Has great touch

Weaknesses

  • Smaller in stature with small hands
  • Will throw balls into coverage
  • Stares down receivers
  • Struggles reading complex defenses.

Summary

  • A solid leader that has limited upside.
  • Likely a career backup
  • Has a feel for the game, but does he have the physical size and strength
  • I think he would be a viable option for the Cowboys to develop. he will get better with experience. He will not ever replace Romo, but could be an effective backup in a couple of years.
  • I have him as a top 150 player

The Cowboys could go with a quarterback in the first round, either Goff or Wentz, if they believe one of them will be the QB of the future. If this happens, you can count on Tony Romo being the quarterback for three years or less. However, Jerry Jones does not sound convinced that that will be the case. Therefore, I would not expect to see this happen.

After all, why spend an early first round pick on a player that may never see the field?

In the second round, there will be options available. Lynch may fall, and Connor Cook should be available. I don’t think the Cowboys have that high of a grade on Cook though and I think Lynch will be gone in the first, so I don’t think the Cowboys will pick up a QB in the second round.

The third round is a possibility, particularly if Connor Cook is still available. Prescott may also be an option in the third but most other QBs will not grade out at a third round level.

In the fourth round, things open up. Hackenberg, Jones and Allen could go in the fourth. These are developmental quarterbacks that could be viable options for the Cowboys to nurture and groom.

Or they may have a raw QB that they believe they can nurture. Perhaps a small school guy? If the Cowboys have not drafted a QB by the 6th round, expect them to take a flier on a physically gifted but relatively unknown QB.

I hope you have enjoyed the series. Look for my next article conceiving draft scenarios later this week. Until then...

    Excellent work-up, as usual, Tommy. Looking forward to some of those draft scenarios.

  • Randy Martin

    I know you cannot consider Fanspeak a reliable tool of reality but invariably in the mocks I do Lynch is available at #34 and there is just something about him that concerns me and not sure I would take him. Primarily it is his height and the way receivers have to adapt to a taller QB. And there has never been a successful QB that tall in the NFL. Flacco is the closest. In reality he probably won’t be there but what if?

    • http://www.techbaa.com Tommy Simon

      In the second, yes it is worth the risk. I still would like the boys to drop down in the first to pick up two more picks so they can get the Qb and still get younger talent. But if that is the situation, then I would trade back in to the end of the first so I get the 5th year option

      Tommy Simon

  • Kevin Black

    A lot of people complain about Wentz locking onto one option and missing other open receivers. Most of those were due to pre-snap reads. To find out more, check out this interview with his college offensive coordinator. After you read it, I think you will change some of the opinions that are weaknesses to strengths.

Difference-Making Prospects Linked to Cowboys in Latest Mock Drafts

Difference-Making Prospects Linked to Cowboys in Latest Mock Drafts 1

The next time we take a look at these mock drafts to see who various members of the media have landing with the Cowboys, it will be on the week of the NFL Scouting Combine. This 2018 Draft process is charging towards Dallas, and with it we have some new prospects to add to the radar this week.

After introducing you to two secondary players last week, along with a consensus top-10 player in Georgia's Roquan Smith, here is the latest crop of college talent to be mocked to America's Team.

Difference-Making Prospects Linked to Cowboys in Latest Mock Drafts

CBS Sports: Calvin Ridley, WR - Alabama

This mock draft comes to us from Chris Trapasso, with the most complete receiver in the draft falling to the Cowboys.

"The Cowboys are thrilled with Ridley still being available. While he's not the biggest wideout and has a skinny frame, he's a dynamic route runner and has the deep speed Dallas has to inject into its offense."

Analysis:

Calvin Ridley may be the one WR in this draft too good for me to pass up on in the first round. As I've studied deeper into this class, the amount of talent available in the later rounds looks much more attractive for a Cowboys team that remains set on at least two starting receivers.

Should this WR depth deter the first 18 teams in the draft order from taking Alabama's Calvin Ridley though, this is a trigger that has to be pulled in Dallas.

Rotoworld: Maurice Hurst, DT - Michigan

Josh Norris' mock draft produces a familiar outcome for the Cowboys, but the talent he passes up on to mock Hurst to this team is certainly interesting.

"I know Vita Vea is on the board, but in Hurst the team is getting more of an upfield, disruptive lineman. He has special moments off the snap, creating instant penetration and totally destroying the offense’s plan."

Analysis:

Yawn. It feels inevitable that at least one mock draft each week will have the Cowboys doubling up on Michigan defensive linemen in the first round - upgrading the 3T position with Hurst. While I'm not dismissing Hurst's talent in any way, I don't see a consistent enough player (nor enough of a difference maker) to warrant the 19th overall pick.

Should the Cowboys lose RFA David Irving, there is no doubt they'll be in need of a disruptive defensive tackle. As the roster stands now though, the Cowboys' bigger need is at the 1T position - which Norris ignores despite the best player at that position (Vea) being available.

Bleacher Report: Tremaine Edmunds, LB - Virginia Tech

Like Chris Trapasso's mock, Mike Tanier's latest draft projection has another top player sliding the Cowboys' way.

"Tremaine Edmunds has been a tricky player to slot in this mock draft. He has limitless upside, but at a position (off-the-ball linebacker) that few teams prioritize in the first round anymore. He should be a Bobby Wagner/Luke Keuchly-caliber contributor by 2019, but whoever drafts him will experience some growing pains as the not-yet-20-year-old Edmunds learns not to get sucked into play action or get caught flat-footed in coverage."

Analysis:

An argument could be made for Tremaine Edmunds as the best LB in this draft. At the very least, he is in elite company atop the board with Roquan Smith. Both prospects play the WILL position, which Tanier correctly points out as one that is devalued currently.

This shouldn't stop Smith from having his name called early in the 2018 Draft, and I have my doubts about it doing the same for Edmunds. A freak athlete out of Virginia Tech, Edmunds will be just 19 years old at the time of April's draft.

This bodes exceptionally well for the Cowboys, who are of course preparing to start Sean Lee at WILL once again. Drafting Edmunds may go against this team's philosophy of drafting immediate starters, along with first round linebackers.

With all that said, Tremaine Edmunds is not a player I could pass up on with the 19th overall pick.

✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭

The NFL Scouting Combine will give teams and draft analysts a much better evaluation of where all of these prospects truly belong. Through three weeks of doing this series, I can't say that any player mocked to the Cowboys has been a reach.

Instead, the likes of Smith, Edmunds, and Ridley could soon disappear entirely from the majority of Cowboys mock drafts moving forward. The bigger picture of who actually will be available to Dallas, and who they're targeting in the first round, is slowly coming into focus.

Cowboys Draft: 3 LBs To Pay Attention To

Cowboys Draft: 3 LBs To Pay Attention To

The Dallas Cowboys enter the 2018 NFL offseason with clear needs to fill at linebacker. Starting MIKE backer Anthony Hitchens will enter free agency, starting WILL Sean Lee has been riddled with injuries, and the now third-year Jaylon Smith is still somewhat of a question mark.

Considering all of the doubts surrounding the Cowboys linebackers, it would be wise to target one during the 2018 NFL Draft. Of course, Roquan Smith and Tremaine Edmunds have become fan favorites over the last few months.

Both of these guys are clearly first round players, however, and may both be gone by the time the Cowboys are on the clock. Dallas will probably need to find their linebacker starting on day two, so I have compiled a short list of some potential targets.

Josey Jewell, Iowa

2018 NFL Draft: Scouting Iowa LB Josey Jewell - Slant Sports

With each NFL Draft cycle, scouts everywhere can typically feel good about their evaluations of Iowa Hawkeyes players. The BIG 10 school is known for producing solid, pro-ready talent that NFL teams absolutely need to fill out a roster. Enter Iowa Linebacker Josey Jewell, a three-year starter and captain on this Hawkeyes defense.

Iowa Hawkeye's linebacker Josey Jewell has been gaining traction within the draft community as of late. The three-year starter and collegiate captain has been discussed as one of the more pro-ready and consistent linebackers in this draft class.

Jewell earned a third round grade on my draft board, and fellow Inside The Star writer Sean Martin saw him in a similar light. Jewell possesses impressive instincts, plays with textbook technique, and is a solid run defender/tackler in the box.

His main weakness, however, is his athletic ability. He doesn't move laterally as well as someone like current Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith did in college. Jewell is a player with a solid floor, but not a very high ceiling. Drafting him would give the Cowboys another good piece on their defense, and a starting SAM backer.

Sean Martin believes he can play at either WILL or MIKE, and we both view him as a potential target for the Cowboys 81st overall.

Leighton Vander Esch, Boise State

Jonah Tuls on Twitter

Vander Esch reads it and attacks at 100 mph. Put this guy on my football team. https://t.co/RaTvP9sO7u

Boise State's Vander Esch is a linebacker garnering a lot of hype throughout Draft Twitter. At 6'4" and 240 pounds, Vander Esch certainly looks the part of an NFL linebacker. His athleticism and ability to move laterally leaves much to be desired, however.

Vander Esch totaled 141 tackles and 3 interceptions during the 2017 season, breaking onto the scene as a Junior. Vander Esch is a three down linebacker who has been labeled a leader and hard worker by his Boise State teammates and coaches, making him an excellent "RKG" candidate for Jason Garrett. He is an instinctual player who reads, reacts, and attacks on a routine basis against the run. He is also consistently impressive in coverage, something the Cowboys could use from their linebackers.

Despite his positives, which there are many, I just can't convince myself to draft Vander Esch as early as he's being talked about. I believe he can be a solid professional linebacker, and fit in as an off ball WILL, but if I were running the Cowboys I wouldn't make that pick until the third round.

And the way things look, Vander Esch will be long gone by the 81st overall pick. Maybe Dallas will see things differently, and make the move in round two.

Rashaan Evans, Alabama

nfldraft2018 rashaan evans - Streamable

Check out this video on Streamable using your phone, tablet or desktop.

My favorite of these three linebackers, Alabama's Rashaan Evans is an off ball/edge hybrid who was all over the field for Alabama.

At 'Bama, Evans had six sacks and 10 quarterback hits, ranking 16th in pass rushing productivity (Pro Football Focus) among all qualifying draft-eligible inside linebackers. Still, I believe his best plays came from when lined up as a traditional off ball linebacker.

In Dallas, Evans could be used as a WILL backer who also rushes as a defensive end in passing situations. The 6'3" 234 pound linebacker is exactly the type of player that NFL defenses are moving towards, and he would be a welcomed addition to this young Cowboys defense.

I believe Rashaan Evans is a top-30 type of player, making it tough to envision being able to draft him 50th overall. If completely wiped out, Evans could be a candidate at 19, though I wouldn't hold my breath. Evans is ILB3 on my draft board, and earned the highest grade of these three linebackers.

Could This Draft Sleeper be Dez Bryant’s Successor?

Could This Draft Sleeper be Cowboys Next WR1?
Sean Pokorny-USA TODAY Sports

One of my favorite parts of the NFL offseason is jumping into the draft process and studying the next group of incoming rookies. I don't pretend to be a professional scout, but I do trust my own analysis for the most part. I find myself right about these prospects more times than not, but no one is perfect.

When scouting these prospects, I am particularly looking at players that fit in with what the Dallas Cowboys like whether it is based on scheme or preference. I try not to waste my time with the ones who I don't believe fit into those categories.

Today, I want to share with you a wide receiver I happened to stumble upon who isn't getting talked about enough, but probably should. He is still flying under the radar, but I think that could change here in a few weeks when the NFL Combine gets underway.

We all know the Dallas Cowboys would probably like to add another receiver at some point in the draft, but when and where is debatable. I think it's unlikely they take one on Day 1, and possibly not even Day 2. It will likely depend on how things fall, but Day 3 could still have quite a few good options available.

I've started to study these Day 3 prospects, and I think I've found a diamond in the rough. I'm actually surprised he hasn't been talked about, but that could be good news for the Cowboys.

Let me be the first to introduce you to former Southern Mississippi Golden Eagle, Korey Robertson.

WR Korey Robertson, Southern Miss

Korey Robertson

Southern Miss WR Korey Robertson

I don't know about you, but I don't think of ever watched Southern Mississippi play a single collegiate game. They're not a big powerhouse school and don't produce a lot of high-end draft picks, but we've seen small school players make a name for themselves in the NFL before.

As you can imagine, I wasn't expecting much when I started to watch Korey Robertson's game film, but I was pleasantly surprised. I think he has the potential to be a WR1 in the NFL and he reminds me a lot of the Dallas Cowboys own, Dez Bryant.

Robertson was a surprise early entry into the 2018 NFL draft class. He had remaining eligibility left and could have possibly improved his draft stock by returning to Southern Miss, but that's neither here nor there now.

Robertson certainly looks the part of a WR1 in the NFL. He is 6'2", 210 pounds and plays with amazing physicality. I think he could be the best WR in this draft class at attacking the ball in the air and winning those 50/50 jump balls. This is where he reminds me of Dez Bryant the most.

But don't take my word for it, take a look at his highlights and judge for yourself.

I really like what I seen of Korey Robertson. I think he really makes an intriguing wide receiver prospect for the Dallas Cowboys. I personally think he has WR1 potential.

He registered 76 catches for 1,106 yards and 12 touchdowns this last season, so the production is there, but he's far from a finished prospect.

Robinson still needs to fine-tune his route running, but it's not terrible. He shows good speed on film and is expected to run in the 4.4 range at the combine. That would definitely boost his draft stock.

I think he checks just about all of the boxes. He has the size, speed, catches the ball easily (with his hands), and plays with the physicality that will immediately make him a fan favorite.

I currently have a third-round grade on him, but I'm probably higher on him with others. I think he will be a Day 3 draft pick, which means the Dallas Cowboys could use one of their compensatory picks to select this talented wide receiver.

What do you think of Korey Robertson as a potential Cowboys WR?
