In previous years, the Cowboys have done a solid job in finding undrafted free agents that have contributed to the team, as in the cases of Tony Romo and more recently, Lance Dunbar, so let’s take a look at the undrafted free agent quarterbacks and running backs that signed with the Cowboys following the 2014 NFL Draft; who knows, maybe there’s a gem there to be found.

Browning was a four-year starter at Louisiana-Monroe, who possesses good size (6-1, 220-lbs) and athleticism for the position. He is elusive in the pocket, knows how to evade rushers and uses his feet to buy time. However, he doesn’t have elite arm strength and his throwing motion will need to be adjusted at the next level.

Vaughan is a three-sport athlete, who offers great size for the position. He is a smart player and an outstanding leader according to his teammates and coaches. His negatives include forcing passes under pressure and taking unnecessary sacks. Physically he has incredibly small hands (8 7/8”) for a player who is 6-5, 235-lbs.

Copeland certainly looks the part of an old school fullback (5-11, 271-lbs.). He has long arms and big hands, which he uses to blow up defenders. At the next level he will have to learn to sustain blocks as opposed to going for the big hit. He doesn’t offer much in terms of pass catching, but did serve as a goal line back at LSU.

Ben Malena (RB) Texas A&M

Malena’s size (5-8, 193-lbs.) will limit him to specialized duties at the next level. Despite his size, Malena is very good in blitz pickup. As a runner, he has solid agility and elusiveness, and also does a good job as a pass-catcher. He also offers special teams experience. At the next level, Malena will need to learn to take more care of the football.

Martin suffered a torn ACL in 2009, missed a lot of time in 2010 and broke his ankle in 2013, so there is some injury concern with him. He has good size (6-0, 223-lbs.) and is a good between-the-tackles runner, but doesn’t always run behind his pads. Martin doesn’t offer much as a pass catcher.
