Dallas Cowboys 2011 Draft Class Highlight Video
Below, I have pasted a tremendous highlight film of the Cowboys’ eight 2011 draft picks. Underneath the video, I posted the times of the plays I considered to be each player’s best. Watching purely highlights can often be misleading, but it will give you a sense of the sorts of things each player is capable of doing.
Tyron Smith, OT, USC
0:50 – Uses intelligence to come off block after recognizing stunt
0:53 – Possesses incredible chop block, but will be asked to do that less in Dallas
0:58 – Best block of all; look at the agility, speed and power
1:11 – Screen. . .wow, he actually hurdles a defender
Bruce Carter, LB, UNC
2:11 – Huge hit
2:33 – Return after interception displays hips and agility
DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma
3:40 – Return ability will be big, but can he return punts?
4:00 – Legit home run ability; 4.40 Combine 40-yard dash, but I think he plays even faster
4:56 – Leap is insane
5:05 – Agility, quickness, and fast-twitch ability all superb; power is there, but inconsistent
6:03 – Receiving ability second-to-none
6:22 – Lowers shoulder and gives devastating blow
David Arkin, G, Missouri State
7:05 – Not extremely athletic, but has ability to get to second level
Josh Thomas, CB, Buffalo
8:16 – Willing tackler
9:13 – Experience as blitzer will help in Rob Ryan’s scheme
Dwayne Harris, WR, East Carolina
10:13 – Dynamite after the catch
11:01 – Special teams value as blocker
11:19 – Special teams value as returner
11:42 – Very difficult to bring down
Shaun Chapas, FB, Georgia
12:56 – Lead blocker through and through
Bill Nagy, C, Wisconsin
