TheRanchReport.com has learned the Dallas Cowboys have signed Northwest Missouri State wide receiver Jamaica Rector.
Rector, along with 20 other local prospects, worked out for the Cowboys in early April.
School: NW Missouri State
Ht: 5-9.5 Wt: 186 40: 4.52 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a true freshman
and awarded All-Conference honors the past
three years. Posted career receiving numbers
of 87/1,203/15 as a senior, also averaging 16.6
yards on 29 punt returns and 24 yards on 15 kick
returns. Has never caught fewer than 61 passes
during any single season in college.
pass catcher with outstanding hands. Quickly
gets off the line, separates from defenders and
possesses soft-consistent hands. Lays out for the
difficult reception, plucks the ball out of the air or
gets vertical to snatch the high throw. Elusive running
after the reception and dangerous returning
punts. Plays smart football.
Negatives: Poor size/speed
numbers. Not strong and struggles against physical
corners. More quick than fast and does not
stretch defenses. Dominated against small school
Analysis: A solid football player with a
variety of skills, Rector has potential as a slot
receiver in the NFL, yet his bread and butter will
be returning punts.
