2008 NFL Draft: Day 2

Day 1: NICE

That was one heckuva 1st day for the Dallas Cowboys. A quick review of the picks:

1st round, 22 overall:

Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas

John Czarnecki, FoxSports:  Now, Jones isn't as talented as McFadden, but when scouts visited Arkansas they came away impressed with Felix Jones and rated him awfully close to McFadden. Jones is light, but he does have great north-south explosion.

Scouts, Inc: Felix Jones gives them an explosive playmaker who can score from anywhere on the field. He is also an explosive returner in the kicking game.



1st round, 25 overall:

Mike Jenkins, DB, South Florida


Scouts, Inc: ...potential to develop excellent man-to-man cover skills because he opens his hips well and is a quick, fast athlete. There's also a lot to like about his versatility; he can line up at safety and can make an impact as a kick returner.


2nd round, 61 overall:

Martellus Bennett, TE, Texas A&M



Scouts, Inc: Bennett isn't an elite run-blocker and doesn't have great top-end speed. However, he's a great value. Watching him on film and knowing that he played college basketball for two seasons, it's hard not to compare him to San Diego tight end Antonio Gates. Much like Gates, Bennett knows how to use his size to box defenders out, and he can make tough catches in traffic. Taking the comparison even further, Bennett is versatile enough to flex out wide.
