Dallas Cowboys UDFAs

The Dallas Cowboys had questions at offensive tackle with Terrence Steele and Tyron Smith both recovering from injuries. While Tyler Smith did move to left tackle, there is a lack of swing tackle currently with everyone in depth still developing. Earl Bostick Jr. is a developmental swing tackle but flashes athletic mobility which helps cut rushers off on the edge. He will fight for a depth position early and could be stashed on the practice squad.

The first thing you notice when Bostick plays is his ability to kick out quickly and get to the edge with some aggression and speed. He is actually better as a pass blocker than he is as a run blocker at this point, and part of that is due to his past play as a tight end. While he is still learning the position his mobility gives a glimpse of what he could be and his frame can still add some size up top.

Bostick is still very raw with understanding how to use his hands which will sometimes get him in trouble in combination with his overall play strength in the run game. He controls his body well, but doesn’t have the technique down which causes him to move too far out of position and in need of recovery. He doesn’t move as well as you would like getting to the second level and much of that is still his learning. Adding size will also help him anchor better at the point of attack as he will get too upright on blocks at times.
