Finally, there is a chance that the Cowboys could look to go offense in the second round. Randall Cobb leaving town was a disappointing development. McCarthy was hoping to have a guy with Cobb’s skill-set on the field.

What does Cobb bring to the field that the Cowboys wanted? That would be a simple one word answer, which is speed. If Dallas wants to replace that, K.J. Hamler would be exactly what the doctor ordered.

Hamler is the definition of speed. He didn’t run at the NFL Draft Combine, but he said he ran a 4.27 40-yard dash. That may not end up being accurate, but you get the idea of how fast he is.

Last season with the Nittany Lions, Hamler caught 56 passes for 904 yards and eight touchdowns. He averaged 16.1 yards per reception, which shows of his playmaking ability.

Dallas may not choose to consider offense this early in the draft, but if they do, Hamler would be an intriguing fit.


  1. If we don’t get a SAFETY in Rd 1, we will need to get him in Rd 2. Love Kyle Dugger but for now my pic is Jeremy Chinn, he is an every down player and he makes the kind of plays our Defense has been missing for some time now.

    • I agree. Love Dugger or Chinn in second round and hoping Henderson falls to Cowboys on the first. If not I’m hoping we have a trade partner to drop back a few spots and grab Diggs or Ruiz while picking up an additional 2 or 3.
