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


Introducing “Scouting the Draft” Series at New York Times

Jonathan Bales

Each year, I analyze 50+ prospects in fairly great detail in my “Potential Draft Picks” series.  In 2012, I will be taking my analysis to the New York Times’ football blog “The Fifth Down.”  The scouting reports there will not be Cowboys-specific, but I will supplement each post with extra information here.

The first post is up today, and it is on Penn State DT/DE Devon Still.  Click here to check it out.

Devon Still: A Good Fit in Dallas?

Prior to scouting Still, I didn’t know too much about him.  Actually, had you told me the Cowboys would select him in the first round, I would have thought it would be a reach.  Not anymore.  Although he needs to become more consistent, I think Still plays like a top 5 pick at times.  I have already completed a scouting report for LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers (which will be posted tomorrow), and I will tell you right now I much prefer Still.

Still would be an amazing fit as a five-technique end in Dallas.  At this point, he and Stanford guard David DeCosta are perhaps my two favorite prospects.

Again, head on over to the Times to check out my analysis of Devon Still, and feel free to leave comments either here or there.
