Cowboys Sign WR

The Dallas Cowboys moved quickly on this undrafted free agent late Sunday night.

The Dallas Cowboys signed undrafted free agent wide receiver Sam Hurd, has learned.

Full Name: Sam Hurd School: Northern Illinois Pos: WR

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 195 40: 4.61 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after leading the team with career numbers of 65/1,074/13.

Pos: Reliable wideout who consistently comes up with the important reception. Finds the open spot on the field or sneaks behind the defense. Extends to pull the ball from the air and exposes himself to the big hit in order to make the reception. Displays solid eye/hand coordination and outstanding timing. Gives effort blocking and gets results.

Neg: Slow releasing off the line, cannot run to the deep ball and lacks a second gear. Must improve his route-running skills.

Analysis: A big-play receiver on the college level, Hurd is one of the more underrated wideouts in the draft. Lacks classic size/speed numbers yet should have no problem making a roster in the NFL.
