Cowboys Workout Big 10 WR

TheRanchReport.com brings you the latest on this underrated wide out available for the 2006 draft.

It hasn't happened often this off-season, but the Dallas Cowboys have worked out a handful of wide receivers eligible for the 2006 NFL Draft. Recently, the team had a closer look at former Iowa receiver Clinton Solomon, TheRanchReport.com has learned.

Solomon, a likely undrafted free agent, is currently ranked as the No. 29 wide receiver available for Saturday's draft.

During his senior season he brought in 46 passes for 800 yards and seven touchdowns.

Many experts are suggesting the Cowboys need to get younger at wide receiver in the draft, but owner Jerry Jones has publicly said that will not be a priority for the organization, even though current starters Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn are both over 30 years old.

The 2006 draft is also considered a weak draft for wide receivers with just two players expected to go in the first round in Ohio State's Santonio Holmes and Florida's Chad Jackson.



Full Name: Clinton Solomon School: Iowa Pos: WR

Ht: 6-2.5 Wt: 214 40: 4.60 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Posted 46/800/7 as a senior after career-best numbers of 58/905/6 during his junior campaign.

Pos: Possession wide out who displayed flashes the past two seasons. Comes back to the ball and works to make himself an available target. Uses the sidelines well, extends in a crowd or easily makes the reception in stride. Shifty running after the reception and possesses a burst in the open field. Improved his blocking as a senior.

Neg: Tends to peek up the field before he's actually caught the ball. Marginal speed and cannot run to the long throw.

Analysis: After a slow start to his senior campaign, Solomon was Iowa's go-to guy by season's end. Possesses the skills to play at the next level yet must round out his game.
