Dallas Cowboys Round Three – Andrew Vorhees – Guard – USC
The Dallas Cowboys have been known to select a few future Hall of Fame players across the offensive line over the past few decades and play their best football when tending to the offensive trenches. With their third round pick they could look toward a man that has all the makings of a dominant NFL guard.
Andrew Vorhees may shoot up into the second round once teams get a better look at him but for now he should be the primary target for the Cowboys in round three. Vorhees is an absolute force in the run game that’s based on his wide frame and powerful lower body, which he anchors well while holding off bigger defenders. Vorhees has an ideal offensive lineman build standing at 6’6″ while tipping the scales at 325 pounds. On top of his power and excellent run blocking, the former Trojan also holds his own in pass protection which the Cowboys currently lack. He would be a solid addition alongside Tyler Smith and Tyler Biadasz.
The one area that could cause some concern for teams is Vorhees shorter arms. at 32.375 inches, he comes in at the fifteenth percentile and the thirty-seventh percentile in wingspan. This also causes him to have sloppy hand placement at times when when engaging quicker defenders. Short arms and wingspan aside, Vorhees is a big-bodied powerhouse with a high floor and higher ceiling.
