Cowboys select Isaiah Stanback at #103

New, comments

.

Isaiah Stanback is a QB, but he’s one of those "slash" type players who some people projected as a WR in the NFL.

Here’s NFLDraftCountdown on Stanback:

Height: 6-23/8 | Weight: 216 | 40-Time: 4.50

Strengths:
A terrific natural athlete...Very good speed and is extremely mobile...Arm strength is excellent and he snaps the ball off quickly...Pretty good size and bulk...A strong runner and he's tough to tackle in the open field...Throws well on the run...He is a team leader with solid intangibles...Very versatile and has experience at another position...Was showing major improvement as a senior...Still has a lot of upside.

Weaknesses:
Might have to change positions at the next level...Still very raw as a passer and only has about two years of experience...Still needs a lot of work when it comes to mechanics, technique and fundamentals...Was not overly productive...He's still recovering from a serious injury so health and durability are concerns...Makes too many mistakes...A long-term project regardless of which position he settles in at.

Notes:
Also a member of the Huskies track team...Excelled in baseball as a prep and was chosen in the 45th round of the 2006 MLB Draft by the Baltimore Orioles...Some teams are looking at him as a wide receiver prospect and that is where he played as a freshman...Suffered a season-ending foot injury as a senior...An intriguing developmental guy as either a signal caller or wideout but will need a lot of work.
