Taylor Price to Work Out for Cowboys

The National Football Post is reporting that Ohio wide receiver Taylor Price will meet with the Cowboys.  The visit will begin tomorrow and will be of the two-day variety.

Price’s 4.41 forty-yard dash at the Combine was the second-fastest of any wide receiver, trailing only Clemson wide receiver/track star Jacoby Ford.

We see a player like Price as a more likely addition to the wide receiver corps than players like Dez Bryant, Golden Tate, and Demaryius Thomas.  With Roy Williams in the midst of a $45 million deal and Miles Austin set to get paid in the near future, it just wouldn’t be a sound business decision to implement another fairly large first-round contract into an already expensive position.

It may not be what you’d like to hear, but Dallas is unlikely to address the WR spot until the middle or late rounds of the draft (if at all).  A player with incredible return ability might be the exception.

  1. I’ve been on his bandwagon from jump street. Good route runner, good hands, and good speed. Plus he is a 3rd round projection. I don’t think he is regarded as aq returner yet, though. Players like this guy are why I am advocating trading some veterans for picks. I also like Gettis, for size/speed combination, and Sanders, speed. With our other needs 3rd round may still be too high for WRs, unless we can garner more picks. I’m thinking if we stay with our current picks, we are going to have to treat them as 1st picks in the next round. We may have to reach 3 or 4 spots to get who we want. If we could get say the 7th or 8th pick in the 2nd and 3rd, plus or 27th in each round. That’s what I’m talking about. Maybe even moving out of the 1st, depending on who’s there. BTW I believe Dorin Dickerson would be a beast in the slot. He could chip block LBs on outside runs from the slot. Then let pulling linemen clean up. He also might be an option as a fullback/receiver on certain sets. We need to get creative, to make the base offense less predictable. Dickerson has 4.4 speed for a big WR/small TE.

    • Price might be a good fit but we aren’t as high on Dickerson as you. Tight ends are efficient because of the mismatches they generate. I’m not sure Dickerson’s blocking ability will be good enough for him to be matched up against linebackers. Teams may just go into nickel to defend him.
