Anton Harrison – OT

Anton Harrison is an explosive athlete. He moves easy in space and can cover a lot of ground when attacking defenders. Heavy hands, strong and nimble.

Run blocking was not his strength, but he worked on getting stronger this past summer. In a pass-driven league. Pass blocking tackles are a premium in the NFL.

The Cowboys lack a young promising tackle outside of Tyler Smith. Josh Ball is better suited playing right tackle.

Harrison can play the right side if Terence Steele is not ready for training camp.

I would love to move Harrison to LT and move Tyler Smith inside to LG and let them abuse people’s kids on Sunday for the next 10 years.

Tyler Steen – OT

Tyler Steen possesses ideal length and frame density, allowing him to use his size to generate additional power when blocking.

When gathering and directing his strength correctly, Steen blows defenders off the ball. He has showed his ability to use upper-body strength to keep defenders out of the play in run defense.

Plays well in space with good range and a nasty attitude when finishing his blocks. Powerful and with a foundation of strength from a well-regarded college program.

Steen’s performance at the senior bowl showed his ability to play offensive guard, making him a viable 4-position starter at the next level. Dallas loves position flexibility.

Darnell Wright – OT

Darnell Wright is a talented large man, having the ability to play both left and right tackle, even having knowledge of playing guard from his freshman year.

His true potential was revealed last year when he was named the starting right tackle.

His 6-5, 330-pound frame is suitable for every position on the line except for center. He exhibited this at the Senior Bowl in January.

I think it’s better for him to play inside as a guard. He has a nasty demeanor. He likes to be the bully and show the opposing defenders he is the one in charge.

The Dallas Cowboys have a history of selecting players from the Senior Bowl, and Wright made an impressive impression with his performance in Mobile.

Darnell Wright and Tyler Smith could form a formidable left side for the Cowboys. One that could last for the next decade.
