When taking a glimpse at the Cowboys roster at the commencing of February, there are a few positions that have to have some sort of upgrading this offseason. Defensive deal with, large receiver, and restricted conclusion are the three that stand out and could use updates at the top rated or just add some depth. Today, we will acquire a glimpse at three defensive tackles the Cowboys could focus on with their first pick (58th in general) in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Renell Wren – Arizona Point out – 6’4” 315-lbs
Renell Wren has it all, the size, explosiveness, and flexibility. If there was ever a defensive lineman produced in a lab to healthy into Rod Marinelli’s scheme, I’d have to imagine Wren would be the person. Wren is built like a brick wall at 6-foot-4, 315-lbs, and is hoping to run a sub-4.9 40 property-sprint at the NFL Blend at 315-lbs. Wren has very long arms (33 3/4”) that he uses nicely to management offensive lineman at the stage of attack. Whilst Wren’s upper body mass passes the eye take a look at with flying hues, but how thickly built he is in his lower 50 % will allow him to deliver a large push from the inside.
Wren possesses a freakish first stage, which will allow him to win off the snap on a higher percentage of snaps. Wren’s biggest weak point heading into the Senior Bowl week was his inability to counter when his initial hurry is held up, and he showed struggles with his hand/hand placement at Arizona Point out. I was pleasantly shocked to see the advancement in people regions of his recreation from the conclusion of ASU period, to Senior Bowl week.
He is a person that has the size, pace, and power to engage in at equally the 1 and the three in Dallas’ scheme, which is some thing Marinelli enjoys in his lineman. Wren has been flying up draft boards because his dominant week in Cell at the Senior Bowl, and will probably be a top rated-75 pick right after screening at the NFL Blend with his measurables.
Out goes David Irving, in arrives Charles Omenihu. When chatting to distinct scouts at the Senior Bowl, it was a mixed bag on what position NFL scouts see Charles Omenihu participating in at the upcoming stage. For the Cowboys, Omenihu would be a dominant 3-tech to acquire Irving’s location in Marinelli’s defense.
Charles Omenihu has freakish measurables standing at 6’5” 278-lbs, and possesses 1 of the a lot more freaky wingspans (84 6/8”) I have ever viewed out of a defensive lineman. Omenihu is very explosive performing off the edge, and from the inside. He possesses an elite first stage and burst out of his stance. Because of to his size and wingspan, he is a difficult person to attain in the run recreation — which will allow him to clog up functioning lanes with ease, but the wingspan will allow him to carry ball carriers down with no fully possessing to location his overall body in the lane itself. Omenihu spent most of his time participating in DE at Texas, but with his frame, electrical power, quickness, and absence of lower body adaptability, a transfer to 3-method may be Charles Omenihu’s most effective position at the upcoming stage.
The Cowboys would probably have to have Charles Omenihu to tumble a little bit for them to have a chance at the previous Texas Longhorn, but the term coming out of Cell, was that Omenihu is probably heading to tumble into the next spherical. For the Cowboys sake, let us hope it is all the way to 58th in general.
Jerry Tillery – Notre Dame – 6’5” 305-lbs
Jerry Tillery is 1 of the toughest evaluations in the 2019 draft class. At instances, Tillery seems to be like a confident hearth top rated 10 pick. At other instances, Tillery seems to be like a mid-spherical rotational participant. It is been noted that Tillery is being flagged by some NFL teams thanks to character challenges from his previous.
At 6’5”, 305-lbs, Tillery has the best size to be a power in the middle of Rod Marinelli and Kris Richard’s defensive line. Tillery is very explosive out of his stance which will allow him to beat opposing offensive lineman with equally pace and electrical power. Whilst he’s capable to win with his pure power, he’s also capable to win of the snap with a fast first stage. He also performs with violent fingers when rushing the passer, and participating in the run which will allow him to rip previous, drop off, or manage management of inside lineman at the stage of attack. Tillery shows more than enough athletic skill to make performs equally in the backfield and down the line of scrimmage vs . the run.
After a breakout 12 months in 2018, Tillery will acquire a ton of issues concerning his character and regularity challenges at Notre Dame. Whilst people are legit challenges, and probably types that push him down draft boards, Tillery has all the applications to be a dominant inside defensive lineman in the NFL. Tillery is not really a higher-risk participant, but with some risk concerned, the gamble could pay back off major for the Cowboys if he falls to them in the next spherical.
Following week we will acquire a glimpse at three large receivers the Cowboys could focus on with the 58th in general pick, and will carry on on to restricted conclusion position the week right after. Be confident to check out again in as we go by means of these three position teams for the Cowboys to focus on with the 58th in general pick in the next spherical of the 2019 NFL Draft.
