A New Way to Look at the Cowboys, NFL, and Fantasy Football

Cory Procter to Remain a Cowboy

Cory Procter is a perfect example of the importance of versatility in the NFL.

Good news for the band Free Reign, bad news for Dallas fans everywhere: Cory Procter will remain in Dallas in 2010. Procter signed his free agent tender (a second round tender), meaning he will make $1.809 million this season.

Might this affect the Cowboys’ draft strategy? It is widely believed the team is interested in Idaho guard Mike Iupati. We believe Florida guard/center Maurkice Pouncey would be a better fit, and he even won our Cowboys Draft Pick Tournament.

Nonetheless, if the Cowboys plan to retain Procter in 2010, they may look to secure an impact player at a position other than in the interior line. Procter’s versatility to play both guard and center is undoubtedly what has kept him in Dallas. Now, the team may believe they are free to concentrate more heavily on upgrading the offensive tackle position.

With the top-tier tackles projected to be gone by the Cowboys’ 27th selection, though, Dallas may have their eyes set on another position in the first round–perhaps free safety. That would make UMass guard/tackle Vladimir Ducasse a very interesting prospect for the Cowboys in the second round.

    Sometimes you wonder what the coaches look at. This guy looked like a high school player, when he had to play for Kosier.

    I just don’t really get it either. He saves a roster spot in being able to play three positions, but so does Pouncey :)

    We haven’t had a sniff on any of our FAs. Choice is the only one who has been mentioned for a trade. I’m not putting Miles in this either. A lot of people would want him but they know, he’s going nowhere. Cincy wanted MartyB last year but even that is quiet now. Shouldn’t this tell us something? Maybe JJ is gearing up for a multi-player trade. Wade is supposed to be a good talent evaluator, but Miles was a backup until injury allowed him to play. I really want to believe.

    I really hope Choice isn’t involved in a deal. He could be the best all-around back on the team.
