Dallas Cowboys Targets: Senior Bowl Standouts
Demetric Felton WR/RB
From his first snap on, Demetric Felton grabbed our attention. The 5-foot-10, 200 lb. water bug is Tyreek Hill Lite for any team interested in adding playmaking and explosiveness to their offensive arsenal (i.e. everyone). Used primarily as a tailback at UCLA, Felton practiced as a receiver.
Felton showed the he’s not your typical running back playing slot receiver in practice. He ran nice routes and created separation with ease. He tracked the ball like a seasoned receiver and he showed natural hands and high-point ability. It was a very impressive week for Felton and one couldn’t help but compare him to those play-making speedsters in Kansas City
Cade Johnson WR
South Dakota State
After dominating the lower ranks of college football, many wondered if he was nothing more than a big fish in a small pond. But Cade Johnson put on a clinic during his week at the Senior Bowl. His route running was spectacular and he showed he can create separation from just about anyone at any given time.
At 5-foot-11, 175lbs, Cade isn’t the biggest receiver out there, but he proved he has the skills and courage to play the slot and operate in the middle of the field, and the Dallas Cowboys could very well see him as a Cole Beasley type of player for their offense. Oh yeah, and he plays special teams.
WR D’Wayne Eskridge
D’Wayne Eskridge may not have helped himself as much as Felton (he was already highly regarded), but he may have had the best couple days of practice overall. The 5-foot-9, 188 lb rocket was a sight to behold. He played at a different speed, sometimes laying down his third juke before the opposing DB could make his first reaction.
Eskridge looks like he could be a beast in the slot at the pro level. He’s going to create separation every down, and he’s going to make people miss. What’s not to like?
