Cowboys Draft: Reviewing Kansas DT Daniel Wise

Throughout the post draft media process, the ’ decision makers have been adamant that they found multiple draft-able players in undrafted this year. Each of which, of course, will have an opportunity to compete for a or spot this summer.

One of those players who almost certainly had a draft-able grade despite fall through all seven rounds, is Kansas defensive Daniel Wise.

At 6’3″ and 290 pounds, Wise projects as a 3-technique in the NFL, and should compete for that very role on the . Wise is not an overly bendy or athletic player, but he has a good initial quickness which allows him to penetrate gaps well. Wise plays with excellent effort, having the type of motor that I’m sure valued highly during the pre-draft evaluations.

Not all of these talented defensive tackles will make the team, though, it’s simply a numbers a game. And cutting an undrafted will certainly be easier to do than cutting someone who will be owed real money, or was acquired through premium draft capital.

Regardless, Daniel Wise will have the chance to prove his worth during and the . And based on how he projects through his college tape and physical attributes, he’ll likely make those final decisions very difficult on the Cowboys’ staff.
