Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells made his debut earlier today in Mobile, AL as both the North and South squads began preparations for this weekend's Senior Bowl.
And there was little surprise on where he headed first: the defensive linemen.
Parcells spent an extensive amount of time inspecting the defensive linemen on hand Monday, and one of his favorites appeared to be Virginia Tech's Jim Davis.
Davis, a 6-foot-4, 270 pound defensive end prospect, was pointed out by Parcells to a number of scouts on several occasions.
Davis missed the 2003 season following spring surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle, but he proved to be an outstanding contributor this past year for the ACC Champion Hokies.
He recorded 28 total tackles, including 12 for loss, five sacks, and five passes broken up.
The Cowboys are believed to be eyeing several defensive linemen in the 2005 NFL Draft as they look for both defensive tackles and ends. Currently, Davis is the 13th best defensive end propsect as rated by Scout.com.
Davis will also be one of 25 defensive end prospects on hand next month for the NFL Combine.
