As the NFL combine approaches, teams and their fans are getting excited about seeing which players will impress and see their dreams come true by being drafted in the NFL Draft in May. A good draft can make your team, while a poor one can set your team back for many years. The Dallas Cowboys and their fans, know all too well what missing on draft picks will do to a franchise.
Hundreds of players will be on display at the combine in Indianapolis, and sometimes it is hard to keep track of them all. To help Cowboys fans, I have been identifying one player at each position that I believe could help the Cowboys remake their team. Here, we are going to look at the offensive lineman that I think would be a great fit with Dallas.
There are offensive linemen that Dallas could consider in the first couple of rounds, but I believe they should resist doing that. Those should be used to improve the defense. The player I think would be a great fit is Baylor offensive lineman Cyril Richardson. Richardson, who made the switch from tackle to guard for his senior season, is a massive human being. He stands 6-foot-5 and weighs in at 348 pounds. He is projected to go somewhere around the third round in the draft.
Richardson would add to the already strong left side of the Cowboys’ line, as he would play in between Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick. Adding Richardson would help open more holes for the running game and keep pressure off of Tony Romo. As Cowboys fans watch the combine, the must-watch OL is Cyril Richardson. With his massive size, he will be easy to spot.
