In previous years, the Cowboys have done a solid job in finding undrafted free agents that have contributed to the team as in the case of guard Ronald Leary, so let’s take a look at the undrafted free agent offensive guards and tackles that signed with the Cowboys following the Draft; who knows, maybe there’s a gem there to be found.

Clarke (6-3, 290-lbs.) was a 38 game starter at Bloomsburg where he was part of the fifth-ranked rushing offense in the country. He does a good job getting off the line quickly to engage the defender and plays with some nastiness in the run game. Not the biggest guy, but has very good upper and lower body strength making him a great candidate to succeed in a zone-blocking scheme.

Cureton (6-5, 311-lbs.) isn’t the most polished athlete and seems slow off the snap. However, he does have the power that teams look for in the running game. Struggled some against the pass, but really struggles against fast guys. Needs to be more consistent with his play.

Patrick (6-2, 315-lbs.) was a two-year starter for South Carolina and is a bull in the run game. He does a good job with at keeping his feet moving and doesn’t hesitate when attacking the defender. He lacks elite level athleticism and must get better at picking up the blitz.

Pughsley (6-4, 305-lbs.) is an underrated blocker in my opinion. Sure, he needs work, but I think he’s the best pass and run blocker of the group. Gets to the second level quickly, doesn’t hesitate and is nasty in the run game. I think that at the next level he projects better as a guard because he looks more comfortable in small areas.

Aladenoye (6-5, 320-lbs.) began is career at Oklahoma before transferring to Illinois State where he starter at left and right tackle. Not very quick, at the next level, I think that Aladenoye will struggle with speed off the edge, and so, projects better as a guard because he looks more comfortable in small areas.
