The Draft: CB Quentin Jammer

You think Steve Spurrier won't have a serious impact in the NFC East? Don't kid yourself, the Redskins will be throwing the ball all over the place, and one thing is for sure, the Cowboys will have to have a secondary that can go step for step with the NFL's version of the fun 'n gun.

Without question the top cornerback in this year's NFL Draft is none other than Texas Longhorn Quentin Jammer (6'1, 200). And even though the Cowboy's defense consistently overachieved this past season, the secondary is going to need some help over the next few years- and that means Jerry Jones is going to need to bring in players with the athleticism and tenacity of a Quentin Jammer.

Jammer is an exceptional athlete with speed to burn. He's fast, hard hitting, and has the ability to smother the opposing team's top wide receiver or take on a big fullback near the line of scrimmage.

Jammer played Safety early in his career at Texas, but he will likely stay at cornerback in the NFL because of his speed and size.

The one thing you have to love about Jammer is that he is a primetime playmaker. He can intimidate weaker players and force the big turnover during the crucial stretch of the game.

On the year, he registered 55 tackles (46 solo), three TFLs, a pair of interceptions, one forced fumble and a UT-record 24 pass breakups while helping lead Texas to the Holiday Bowl and a 10-2 record.

Jammer has tons of appeal as a potential Dallas Cowboy. Of course, he's been a Longhorn for 4 years, but he also could fill a very big hole in the Dallas secondary. Having the ability to match him up with wide receivers like David Boston (Arizona) or Rod Gardner (Washington) in the NFC East would be incredible, and I wouln't be surprised to see Jerry Jones pull the trigger to get him in a Dallas uniform come draft day.
