Dallas Cowboys Pick 111

Hamsah Nasirildeen, SAF

Florida State

At this point in the draft the Dallas Cowboys have Trevon Moehrig and Donovan Wilson as their starting safeties. Not a bad spot to be in but not exactly ideal either. When Dallas goes 2-deep they want to be able to sit Wilson and bring in another coverage guy. That’s why I have no problem double-dipping at safety in the mid-rounds of the draft.

Hamsah Nasirildeen is the kind of player the draft community goes wild for. He’s a high-risk/high-reward guy with amazing measurables and ceiling through the roof.

Standing 6-foot-4, 215 lbs. he’s a 4-star recruit who’s as gifted as they come. He’s tall but not awkward in his movement. He has good range playing deep safety and could either play a single high role or a Cover 2 role in Dallas.

He takes good angles and has a nose for the ball. He’s another hawk to add to this rebuilt secondary but he can also man up down in the box and match well with tight ends and big slots in either man or zone. He was also frequently used as a blitzer and isn’t afraid to stick his nose in the action.

I have a feeling once he works out for teams he’s going to move up from being a 3-4 round guy to a 2-3 round guy but frankly I wouldn’t mind drafting him in the third given how much promise he has.
