Small School Picks

Throughout the years, the Dallas Cowboys have had success in drafting players from smaller schools and developing them into great talents. Huge names like Rayfield Wright and Ed “too tall” Jones were unlikely talents that developed into Hall of Fame players. Tony Romo, the starting quarterback currently for the Cowboys was even a player that was looked over by every team. Romo played football at Eastern Illinois and he went undrafted in the NFL. He signed with the Dallas Cowboys and never even threw a pass until his fourth season in the league. Though the Cowboys have had success picking these small school players, they have not been able to come up with these talents in recent years. The Cowboys could be thinking about drafting quarterback Carson Wentz from North Dakota State. He is considered one of the best, if not the best, quarterback in the 2016 draft class. While coming from a smaller, less heard of school, Wentz has already accomplished many things in his college career. Jason Garrett says, “he believes in competition and when you have guys that play people at a high level, then that gives you a high evaluation of the player.” Although this is true, there are players in the league that come from all different levels.
