He also volunteered that he thought Patmon had an excellent camp. That proved true as Wednesday the Cowboys placed rookie safety Marvin Robinson of Ferris State on injured waivers, and signed Patmon with the free roster spot to get back to the 90 maximum number.
One report from inside the Cowboys organization and in-house media was that Patmon reminded defensive coach Monte Kiffin of a "younger Ronde Barber."
Robinson, who had knee surgery Tuesday to repair torn meniscus, was one of 24 undrafted rookies to sign last week, He suffered the injury during Friday afternoon's practice last weekend.
Patmon (5-10, 179) played one season for OSU and had 30 tackles last season. After transferring as a graduated super senior from Kansas, Patmon was a key member of the Cowboys' secondary.
His 78-yard fumble return for a touchdown was the knockout blow for an eventual 42-10 win over No. 3 Baylor. At Kansas, Patmon played three seasons at Kansas, amassing 32 starts. He had a team-high three interceptions in 2012 for the Jayhawks.
We also know that receiver Charlie Moore did not get a contract offer at the Lions rookie minicamp in Detroit. No word on Clint Chelf in Miami, Kye Staley with Tennessee, or Shaun Lewis and Tracy Moore in Green Bay as they were all trying for contracts.
