 5th Round

CB Victor Hampton South Carolina

Profile: Project Player. Those words send shivers up your spine don’t they? Hampton is worth it. Built like a safety, speed and quickness of a CB, strength of a LB, what’s not to like?

He hasn’t put it all together yet but he has the ability to cover man to man and make plays on the ball. He’s an excellent kick and punt returner which would add value as he learns behind veterans. Too many projects on the Cowboys already? Maybe, but Hampton has a level of confidence and attitude which are horribly lacking in the Dallas secondary.
