Scott Shanle to sign his tender; remain a Cowboy

Scott Shanle's rights have reverted back to the Cowboys since he didn't receive an offer sheet from another team. So says Mickey Spags.

That means Shanle's exclusive rights revert back to the Cowboys, who qualified him at the $721,600 minimum to reserve a right of first refusal. Shanle is expected to sign his one-year deal, which would make him an unrestricted free agent next off-season unless the Cowboys should sign him to an extension.

Nick Eatman takes on the wide receivers. The usual suspects are examined.

Holmes has been projected to be the best because of his playmaking ability. But at just 5-10, 185, Holmes doesn't have the prototype size to elevate him into the top half of the draft.

Actually, none of the receivers in this group are considered can't-miss prospects. Jackson has ideal size at 6-1, 205, but hasn't shown enough consistency in college to warrant a high pick.

Other top receivers include Miami's Sinorice Moss, the younger brother of Redskins starter Santana Moss, and he might be the quickest receiver in the draft. Notre Dame's Maurice Stovall (6-4, 216) has intriguing size and Arizona State's Derek Hagan (6-1, 203) could be a nice pick in the second round.
