'Boys Meet with Explosive WR

The NFL Combine is just getting underway, but the Dallas Cowboys have already met with this explosive wide receiver Thursday night in Indianapolis.

The 2009 NFL Combine is barely underway but the Dallas Cowboys have wasted little time in talking extensively with one of the most explosive wide outs in the game.

According to several souraces, Dallas met with Oklahoma wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias extensively Thursday evening.

Iglesias is one of the top-rated receivers in the 2009 NFL Draft, and he showed why he deserves that status at the Senior Bowl as he snared six passes for 90 yards against some of the best defenders in the country.

At 6-foot-1, 204 pounds, Iglesias is a physical receiver who rarely gets manhandled coming off the line. And he's a confident player who eagerly welcomes the opportunity to make catches across the middle, providing him with opportunities to tack on more yards after the catch.

The Sooners receiver finished his senior campaign with a team-leading 74 catches for 1,150 yards, 15.5 yards-per-catch and 10 touchdowns. He also averaged 23.8 yards per kickoff return on 20 attempts.

"I think I can be one of those guys who can get on the field and help out wherever I am needed," Iglesias told Scout.com in a 1-on-1 inteview earlier this week. "Whether that's outside or inside, I'm just going to try to make that immediate impact wherever I am."

Strangely enough, Iglesias grew up a Cowboys fan.

He also said seeing former Dallas head coach Bill Parcells was a thrill for him at the Senior Bowl last month.

"I'm a Cowboys fan and growing up, seeing him with the Cowboys, it was good seeing him down there," he said. "It was good seeing all of the coaches you see on Sunday. They all seem like really good guys—it's a business and you can definitely see that part of it—but at the end of the day, meeting new people is always good."
