Cowboys #26 pick - DE Anthony Spencer
I think Dallas reached here, but still got a steal for next year's draft in the trade with the Browns.
Info on Spencer:
- Explosive up-the-field player thanks to hair-trigger first step and elite top-end speed. Closes with serious burst. Plays run hard and gives terrific effort pursuing from the backside. Strong for size. Good catch-up speed and a powerful hitter. As a senior, his motor never stopped running when the light finally came on in terms of technique and recognition skills.
- Might struggle to get off the blocks as quickly against bigger NFL lineman. Quick and fast but doesn't possess great change-of-direction skills. Needs to improve pass-rush moves. Stiff hips limit him when dropping into pass coverage. Overextends at times and takes himself out of running plays. On the short side with adequate bulk.
