Dallas Cowboys Round Two – Emmanuel Forbes – Cornerback – Miss State

The Dallas Cowboys were really good at creating turnovers, and one of the big reasons the last two seasons is Trevon Diggs. However, on the opposite side of Diggs, there has been questions galore with Anthony Brown, Kelvin Joseph, Nashohn Wright, and even a late sighting of Xavier Rhodes.

When Brown went down, the need became even clearer. While Wright showed some promise, there is still a need at the position. Forbes would give the Cowboys a very aggressive cornerback group.

Forbes is a lot like Diggs in that he has excellent ball skills. He has the most pick-sixes in FBS and SEC history and racked up 14 interceptions total along the way. He can play both man and zone coverage and while he might be a little better in zone, he is still good in man coverage.

Forbes is physical as a tackler, although I would like to see him wrap up more. When in coverage has a good feel for where he is and recovers well.

For all of the great about Forbes, his best quality may also be his biggest knock. As aggressive as Forbes is, sometimes he isn’t patient enough and will bite on a double move in hopes of making a play. If he is too aggressive at the snap, he can get a little grabby on the back end due to his frame not being ideal size. Forbes could add some weight which would help. He will have a little work, but starting as CB2 is the expectation.
