Another UFA Signed by Dallas

Syracuse lineman signs with the Cowboys after the draft.

Matt Tarullo School: Syracuse
Ht: 6-5.5 Wt: 320 40: 5.38 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter who earned all-conference honors as a senior. Also awarded Big East All-Academic honors throughout college.

Positives: Big, tough lineman best in a small area. Quick into blocks, immediately gets his hands into opponents and throws defenders to the ground. Plays with a nasty attitude, yet intelligent and immediately picks up blocking assignments. Solid position blocker who walls defenders from the action or anchors in pass protection.

Negatives: Not a knee bender or light on his feet. Over extends, lacks adjustment and gets tall as the play proceeds. Does a lot of steering or leaning on opponents. Has difficulty moving in space.

Analysis: Possessing size as well as growth potential, Tarullo has the ability to backup at center or either guard positions in the NFL if he improves his flexibility and learns to block with leverage.
