The Dallas Cowboys selected Wyoming outside linebacker Mark Nzeocha with their seventh round (No. 236 overall) selection on Saturday afternoon. Find out more about him below:
Height, Weight: 6-foot-2, 232 pounds
Rankings: CBSSports.com considered Russell the No. 40 outside linebacker on the board and the No. 484 overall player on the board.
The skinny: “Nzeocha has a tremendous amount of athleticism and speed, but his instincts for the game must be developed and sharpened before he can be trusted as a full-time starter. His potential and ceiling are exciting (provided he recovers from injury), but he’s the textbook definition of project. Like the Eagles’ Bryan Braman, he has the length and speed to become a highly effective special-teams player.” — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com.
