Dallas Cowboys UDFA signings

 

Oh yes, I love this. BTB-regular lee3022 pointed me to a site called NFL Draft Bible that has a lot of UDFA signings listed. I just checked it and here’s the list for Dallas:

DE Darrell Robertson, Georgia Tech
DT Marcus Dixon, Hampton
WR Daniel Polk, Midwestern State
FB Julius Crosslin, Oklahoma State
OG Brandon Hale, Sam Houston State
P Jay Ottovegio, Stanford
SS Dowayne Davis, Syracuse
WR Danny Amendola, Texas Tech
TE Drew Atchison, William & Mary

Sweet! They picked up Georgia Tech player Darrell Robertson who was a guy I thought might have a chance as an OLB in the 3-4. He played DE at Tech and was part of a line that was very good at getting after the QB.

NFL Draft Countdown had him as the #12 DE and Mel Kiper had him at the top of his list as Best Player Available throughout the later rounds of the draft. Here is NFL Draft Countdown’s profile:

Strengths:
A smooth athlete...Is explosive and quick...Plays faster than he times...Great pass rusher off the edge...Has a rangy frame..Is active and aggressive with a non-stop motor...Excellent in pursuit with a burst to close...Fluid and has some potential in coverage...Offers some versatility..Smart and a hard worker with solid intangibles.

Weaknesses:
Undersized and lacks the ideal bulk you look for...Has trouble shedding blocks...Is not stout at the point of attack and can be run at...Needs to get stronger...On the ground too much...Limited repertoire of pass rush moves...Can be manhandled by massive offensive linemen...He was not all that productive prior to his senior year.

Notes:
'Tweener who will either need to add weight or make a position change..Could be either a situational pass rusher or outside linebacker depending on scheme...Best fit at the next level will probably be with a team that primarily runs a 3-4 defense.

If you know anything about these other guys, please post it in the comments.
