Finally Some O-Line Depth

The Cowboys finally got the tackle that everyone has been expecting. Sam Young out of Notre Dame was taken in the 6th round. He played right tackle at Notre Dame which reinforces the belief that Doug Free is the long term answer at left tackle for the Cowboys. Young has experience at both tackles but spent most of his time on the right side.

Sam Young is huge. 6'8" and 320 pounds. He fits the Cowboys prototype for a lineman. And he supposedly plays with an attitude similar to Colombo. He looks like a potential replacement for Marc Col0mbo after a few years of developmental time.

So now the Cowboys have hit what most people deemed as the essential need positions prior to the draft. It will be interesting to see what they do the rest of the way. I'm still waiting for Spears, Crayton, or Hurd to be traded.

  1. I LOVE this pick! Huge dude, very durable, and fills some depth need at the o-line. This guy isn't a great athlete but can just overpower people. I'm not sure they're done with adding players. Guessing that they're trying to trade current players like Crayton and Spears for o-line guys.
