Cowboys Agree with OLB Candidate

The Dallas Cowboys came to terms with this outside linebacker this week.

The Dallas Cowboys have come to terms with free agent defensive end Alex Obomese (6-3, 245), has learned.

A defensive end in the 4-3 scheme at UTEP, Obomese figures to try out with the Cowboys as an outside linebacker in the 3-4.

BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a junior after career numbers of 57/10.5/6.5. Senior totals included 55/3.5/3.

POSITIVE: Undersized college defensive end who will get consideration as a rush linebacker in the NFL. Plays with good balance, fluid moving about the field and rarely off his feet. Quickly changes direction and makes plays from every angle. Flashes speed off the edge or out to the sidelines.

NEGATIVE: Easily controlled at the point by a single blocker. Coming off a disappointing senior campaign.

FINAL: A solid college defender with marginal size/speed numbers, Obomese has limited upside for the next level.
