Cowboys article roundup

New, comments

The DFW S-T tells us what was already widely known; Charlie Waters will be doing color-commentary for the Cowboys on radio this season.

SI.com reviews good situations and bad situations for NFL rookie draft picks. Cowboy draftees show up on both lists.

On the good fit list:

3. Bobby Carpenter, OLB, Dallas Cowboys: Carpenter's stock rose as the draft neared because teams knew his versatility was hard to find. At the same time, he understood that he'd be better off going later in the first round, because odds were he'd land on a team with a better chance of winning. This kid hates to lose. He's also a huge fan of Cowboys coach Bill Parcells, who coached Carpenter's father, Rob, with the Giants in the early 1980s. Parcells knows how to get the most out of linebackers, so look for Carpenter to excel in Dallas.

On the bad fit list:
5. Anthony Fasano, TE, Dallas: If Fasano wants to be the next tight end to become a pass-catching star in the league, he's in the wrong place. If he doesn't mind being a second tight end on a team that already has a young, Pro Bowl-caliber player at the position, he'll be just fine. I like the kid. I just don't think he'll get fully utilized by the Cowboys as long as Jason Witten is on the roster.

Apparently the Houston Texans had some interest in FS Pat Watkins before the draft. Over at the Houston Pro Football website, they had a profile of Watkins were they compared him to former Texans safety and current Cowboy, Marcus Coleman.

We signed another UDFA, Pittsburgh TE Erik Gill.
