The Dallas Cowboys continue to talk to prospects on the defensive side of the ball at the NFL Scouting Combine. Saturday, the trend continued as team officials spoke with Florida State defensive end Kamerion Wimbley.
Wimbley, who measured in at 6-3 3/4 and 248 pounds, talked extensively with Dallas last month at the Senior Bowl and now also at the Combine - indicating a clear interest from the Cowboys' organization.
Wimbley has also drawn significant interest from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Why would the Cowboys be so intrigued with another defensive end prospect after drafting Marcus Spears in the first round last year?
Interestingly enough, Wimbley is not just viewed as a defensive end at the next level. In fact, some experts believe he could be better suited as a pass-rushing linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, which obviously fits what the Cowboys are trying to do.
With his size- he would also be an attractive fit as a linebacker as the Cowboys look to bulk up at the position.
Other Wimbley Notes:
* He is represented by agent Joe Linta, who played and coached at Yale. Wimbley said it helps that Linta has good relationships with NFL teams and that he knows so many people in the league.
* Wimbley also said Saturday that he feels his best attributes are his athleticism, ability to get to the quarterback and flexibility.
