Dallas Cowboys Draft 2016 Let's Talk Pick 34,Kenny Clark Jersey Who Wants Seconds
For diehard Cowboys fans and draft fantaics, the second round of the draft has become almost as important as the first. In the last few seasons alone, DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory have been second-rounders that could be important pieces of the Cowboys future. Looking at this year's draft, who are players that the Cowboys should keep on their short list for pick #34?Thomas Davis Jersey
CB Eli Apple, 6'1, 200 lbs, Ohio State (32nd CBS Prospect)
Apple could very well wind up being taken in the first round after the Hargreaves and Alexanders of the world are long gone. Apple is a long, rangy cornerback that plays with physicality and is skilled in both zone and press coverages.Martellus Bennett Jersey He's got great hip motion and is a very coordinated athlete to stay in the play. He uses his length well enough to keep receivers anything but comfortable. He's played against top receivers and has done well with his opportunities. He's still learning what he can and can not get away with at the next level, but Apple is a physical presence that NFL teams yearn for in their secondaries.
DT Sheldon Rankins,Jimmy Graham Jersey 6'2, 304 lbs, Louisville (36th CBS Prospect)
Rankins had to drop out of the Senior Bowl due to injury, but there is no question that he is one of the better interior guys in the draft. Rod Marinelli got a good look at him in those practices and was nearly unblockable. Rankins practically lived in the backfield at his time in Louisville and he brought that to his Senior Bowl practices.Artie Burns Jersey His ability to use his lower-body power with his heavy hands and strength routinely beat the offensive linemen in Mobile. He's got a quick-twitch and excellent motor. A very relentless competitor, Rankins has supreme awareness for a 300+ pound guy. He's versatile enough to play anywhere on the line and his vision to remain in the play is also outstanding. It's a shame that he didn't get to play in the game,Vontaze Burfict Jersey he would have surely had success like all the defensive linemen at the Senior Bowl. He could perhaps be one of the best run defenders in this year's class though he's still polishing his repertoire as a pass rusher.
WR Josh Doctson, 6'2, 197 lbs, TCU (37th CBS Prospect)
Here is a guy to keep a watchful eye on,Robert Nkemdiche Jersey I can tell you with confidence that the Cowboys are intrigued by him. Sure, like Braxton Miller, he has some developing to do, but he's a tremendous athlete. Our own O.Demaryius Thomas JerseyC.C. will tell you that the Cowboys have bought into the SPARQ system. Doctson could be a guy that lands pretty high on that chart. He's got great measurables and length for the position and good speed, too.Rolando McClain Jersey His leaping ability is outstanding as is his awareness and tendencies. You won't hear a negative thing said about Doctson from any alumni or insiders who have the scoop on him. He's a wonderful teammate that can make stellar plays when called upon. Doctson's name has been overheard by Nick Eatman on several occasions in the halls of Valley Ranch. TCU runs a spread offense and often times their receivers need help polishing their route trees, the same will be said for Doctson.Olivier Vernon Jersey He had excellent production for the Horned Frogs with 2,785 receiving yards (most in TCU History) and once had 267 yards in a single game (most in history). Needless to say, here's a player that will contribute early.
CB Kendall Fuller, 6'0, 197 lbs, Virgina Tech (43rd CBS Prospect)
Much like his older brother Kyle (drafted 14th overall), Kendall is a finely-tuned athlete with all the range and tangibles to become a great corner in the NFL. Fuller had meniscus surgery that ended his season early, but that doesn't stop him from entering a draft where cornerbacks will be a solid class. Much like Apple, Fuller knows how to use his length to his advantage with receivers. He plays like a veteran and has a great attitude
