Former Clemson quarterback and current Dallas Cowboys safety Woodrow Dantzler was chosen in the third round of the NFL Europe draft Monday.
Dantzler re-signed with the Cowboys this offseason after spending time with the Atlanta Falcons for the last two years.
He was drafted by the Frankfurt Galaxy.
Cowboys' head coach Bill Parcells has said recently that he wants to use Dantzler primarily as a defensive back and kick returner next year if he makes the 53-man regular season roster.
Dantzler became the first quarterback in NCAA Division I-A history to rush for 1,000 yards and pass for 2,000 yards in the same season at Clemson in 2001. After his time with the Tigers, he signed on with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent, before being released in September 2003.
He was signed by the Falcons just a few days later.
NFL Europe is used by many teams in the National Football League as a place to develop future NFL talent. Dantzler, who has used as a back up quarterback and a kick returner throughout his short professional career, will now try to develop his skills as a defensive back.
