Cowboys Select S Justin Beriault

The Cowboys took Ball State S Justin Beriault in the sixth round Sunday. <BR>

Justin Beriault School: Ball State
Ht: 6-2.5 Wt: 204 40: 4.61 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Four-year starter who played 45 games with the first unit in college and received All- Conference honors the past two seasons. Led the team in tackles as a senior posting 125/1/1 after a junior campaign of 145/1/6. Solid special teams player.

Positives: Nice-sized free safety with an excellent head for the ball. Instinctive, quickly diagnoses the action and very productive. Solid run defender who explodes up the field and wraps up the ball handler. Forces the action and hard hitting.

Negatives: Lacks top cover skills and does not make many plays against the pass. Does not display sideline-to-sideline range and best in a straight line.

Analysis: A hard-working prospect, Beriault has potential as a backup in a two-deep or zone system. Must earn his wage on special teams, an area where he's had success.
