Dallas Cowboy fans held their break through day one and half of day two as they see their team take very talented, yet risky players while seeing the void left at guard. The Cowboys address the matter by selecting UCLA’s Sean Rhyan.
The Dallas Cowboys love to draft Tackles and move them to guard. Matter of fact, that’s been the case for years now as both Connor Williams and Zack Martin were both college tackles before moving inside at the NFL level.
Rhyan also projects well to move inside. He has an NFL build and strength. Good experience with lots of success in the run game. Pass protection is sound.
One thing that may help Rhyan have more experience inside rather than at tackle is his ability to play against speed. Putting him in a phone booth could serve large dividends for a player like Rhyan and that’s exactly the kind of thing the Dallas Cowboys are looking for.
One big difference between Rhyan and the departed Connor Williams is Rhyan may not be the athlete Williams is, but his body if better suited for the rigors and muscle matches of interior offensive line play in the NFL (Continued to next slide…).
