Cowboys Draft Quick Take – Part II – Seventh Round

The seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft has come and gone. I used the word “epic” in Part I of this piece when referring to the seventh round and I wasn’t disappointed.

Cowboys 2014 Draft Quick Take

  • DE Ben Gardner – Man child. 6’4″ 262 lbs, quick and strong. RKOG. Excellent motor. Think Anthony Spencer with a bit more jump.
  • LB Will Smith – 6’2″ 231 lbs, 9’5″ broad jump and excellent shuttle times. RKOG, special teams for certain and can compete at the Will (of course).
  • S Ahmad Dixon – 6′ 212 lbs in the box safety. Special teams and if he can learn to cover could start one day.
  • DT Ken Bishop – 6′ 301 lbs tree trunk who instantly upgrades our goal line defense.  RKOG 1 Tech or bust. Will stop the run. Marinelli magic?
  • CB Terrance Mitchell – An awesome pick, the 5’11” 192 lbs CB timed out slow in the 40 and probably had issues with the mandated “combine start” as his 3 cone and shuttle times were combine best at his position. He is quick as a snake and can ball as he has “playmaker” label. Needs strength. That gets worked out we have a keeper.

The UDFA melee is going on right now. The talent pool is still HUGE. Watch here for updates.

Individual, in-depth profiles will be posted over the ensuing days. Check back often for the best on the web for all things Dallas Cowboys!

  1. I’m curious where Jackson Jeffcoat will end up. I’m still shocked that not a single Texas Longhorn got drafted. That speaks volumns on how far the program fell in the last four years.
