Cowgirls’ Scouting Report: Dallas Cowboys OL Prospects

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse


It is no secret that the Dallas Cowboys offensive line isn’t getting it’s job done. If there is one thing I have learned, it’s that there are diamonds in the rough that go undrafted every year. It is also no secret that if you are in a pinch, you can always poach good players from the practice squads of teams who are loaded with depth in a given position. The following is a profile of the best prospects hiding around the NFL.  They all come from teams with excellent offensive lines. If there is one thing this Cowboys offense has been missing, it’s some nasty. All of these guys bring just that.

6-3 324 5.4 40, 28 bench reps

35 1/4″ arms

 

Jeremiah Warren can play guard or center. He played tackle early in his career, but was better suited as a guard. He is another one of “The Guys No One Was Talking About” that I wrote about prior to the draft. The Patriots watched him work out before the draft, but they didn’t take any O- linemen this year because they were lacking on defense in 2011. Belichick didn’t waste any time snatching him up when he went undrafted because he loves getting former wrestlers for his offensive line. I had him on my board as a late round pick for the Cowboys knowing he wouldn’t go high due to the Big East label. He is very versatile, but he needs to work a little bit on his quickness if he is playing OG for pulling etc. As a center he is a big body in the middle who once he gets his hands on you is very hard to move. He is buried behind one of the best OL’s in the NFL. If you know anything about the Patriots, you know they always have a good eye for OL talent. The fact that Belichick cut at least 3 offensive linemen this year (including a 3 year vet) to keep Warren tells me he is a solid OG/OC. He is currently sitting on the practice squad in in NE and Jeremiah Warren is my top choice for a currently available OG/OC.

2011: Started all 12 games at guard … a second-team All-BIG EAST selection … anchored an offense that averaged 432.8 yards of total offense (30th NCAA/2nd BE), 183.2 rushing yards (31st NCAA/1st BE) and 249.6 passing yards (42nd NCAA/2nd BE) … also helped lead the conference in sacks allowed, helped the Bulls post six games with at least 400 yards of total offense and three games with over 500 yards.

2010: Started all 13 games at guard.

2009: Started in all 13 games, the only offensive player to start every game … shifted between left tackle and left guard late in the season.

2008: Saw action in seven games as a reserve offensive lineman … made collegiate debut against UT-Martin … also played against Kansas, NC State, Syracuse, Cincinnati and Rutgers.

2007: Redshirted … enrolled at USF in January 2007 and participated in spring practice.

BAY HIGH SCHOOL: Class 3A honorable mention all-state … all-county as a junior and senior … 58 tackles with six sacks as a senior … 32-0 as a senior in wrestling … sixth in the state as a junior in wrestling … two-time district champ … also accomplished in shot put and discus … won district and regional titles in both events three times … had 10 varsity letters in football, wrestling and track and field.

2011 ALL-BIG EAST CONFERENCE SECOND TEAM (COACHES): OG Jeremiah Warren, USF, Sr., was selected All-BIG EAST Conference Second Team for the 2011 college football season as chosen by the league’s eight head coaches. Warren, a senior, started in 38 out of 45 games he’s played in at USF and helped the Bulls lead the Big East in rushing (2,185 yards) this season. – (South Florida football). Warren is #55 and you wan watch him in the video below.

    Nice work Cowgirl, I too come to the Cowboys site every day hoping the boys wake up and aquire some of these young Offensive lineman. Wow you are all over this place on this article covering from coast to coast with these players. I like the big phyical offensiive lineman. We could use a couple of those right now, since we are rated 30th in rushing right now. I also follow NE and Denver offensive line, they have some good player on their team. I think NE had 3 qualty center on their team last year and they release one that is in Denver right now Koeppen. I heard he is doing good out there. THe boys could of had him for without having to lose a draft pick also. With Koeppen being in Denver and doing well, they must think more of Warren in the long run. I like his size and the fact that he is a former wrestler, I was just wondering whether he can play some NT.
    I would love to see the boys pick up one of these center and place Kolwaski on IR. In fact I would pretty much cut Costa. How good can Costa be when a third string Center can beat him out. I like the video of these players, they seem to create some impact at the point of attack, something we are desperatly needing right now. I am sure Gearhart will only get better every day practicing against one of the best NT in Atayba Rubin out there in Cleveland

    Great research and terrific suggestions. But you and I both know that adding this player won’t help much. Take the entire Patriots, Packers, Falcons, or any other winning team and plug them into Jason Garrett and Jerry Jones and the same result will happen. JG and JJ find find a way to screw it up. Things are NOT going to change for the Dallas Cowboys until and unless the top changes. Breaks my heart to admit it…but this team has not been the same without Jimmy Johnson. WANTED! Good football minds in control…no puppet coaches allowed. Football Men who are real FOOTBALL men…they’ll win….9 times out of 10.

      Occasionally JJ is good for a mess up last year he got Laurant Robinson and Fiametta. Sometime you dont know unless you try. The problem is JJ is not trying. What do we have to lose beside Costa, Arkin, Leary, Parnnel, Living and Bernadeau.

      • boysteamusa

        Californy, I dont think theyre looking for anybody else on the Line.

  • defense 28

    great article cowgirl . they won’t do this we pick up bengal and panther rejects. need nasty guys like the big E.

  • osnappp

    So the patriots cut 3 people to keep this guy, but now he is all of a sudden available? how does that work?

    • http://yourdailycowboysfootballfix.com/author/cowgirlcas/ Cowgirlcas22

      he is on the practice squad you can steal people from the PS I had to remove Cody White from my story because Hou signed him to the roster

  • boysteamusa

    Great stuff Cas! I doubt our scouts are out even looking to replace Berny, Free, Costa, or Cook.

  • boysteamusa

    we all know they should be!

  • Dallas3026

    You were also a big supporter of Ron Leary though too, right?

    • C. Joseph Wright

      I also thought, based on everything I read, that Leary had a tin of potential.

      • http://yourdailycowboysfootballfix.com/author/cowgirlcas/ Cowgirlcas22

        Another guy JJ hyped up to the fans, but once he got him found out they missed again.

    • http://yourdailycowboysfootballfix.com/author/cowgirlcas/ Cowgirlcas22

      no I wasn’t that was JJ’s guy he has a degenerative knee condition

  • C. Joseph Wright

    Let’s, for argument’s sake, that one of these players is better than one of the players currently employed with the Cowboys. Realistically, if you pull a rookie off a practice squad, how long before he can be “ready to play”?

    • http://yourdailycowboysfootballfix.com/author/cowgirlcas/ Cowgirlcas22

      if he is a smart player a week or 2 at the most he just needs to learn the offense Cook only had a few days I know he’s not a rook but a smart guy can learn a playbook pretty quick
