Dallas Cowboys SLEEPER PROSPECT NO. 5 – OFFENSIVE GUARD
The Dallas Cowboys certainly have a glaring hole in their offensive line. And even more questions to still be answered.
The team needs Right Tackle Terence Steele to show he’s healthy enough to play. Where is Tyron Smith going to play? How many games can he give the team? If 2022 first round pick Tyler Smith is your starting Left Tackle, who plays Left Guard?
When going into day three there are certain things that may mean less than they do on day’s one and two, like age, for instance. Sidy Sow will turn 25 years old in June and has played a lot of football in his life. As a matter of fact, he redshirted before becoming Eastern Michigan’s all time leader in games played and games started. Some see the age as a knock on the player, and fairly so considering the sport and league he’ll be playing in, but there’s also no substitute for experience.
Sow would be a day two player if he had come up playing offensive line and learned more nuance early on. As a converted Defensive Tackle, Sow did not play on the OL until he got to college, so challenges ensued.
At 6’5′ 323lbs and the kind of build you like to see in an Offensive Guard, Sow is athletic enough to step in and compete for the starting LG spot no matter where he’s drafted. However, the aforementioned nuances like hand strike landing or lower body usage are things teams may feel he’ll need to work on before being plugged into a game. However, if he’s the best option on the team you could certainly do worse.
With NFL level coaching, Sow is the type of player that could go from day three sleeper to 4 year starter in no time.
