'Boys talk with another QB

The Dallas Cowboys talked extensively with another intriguing possibility at quarterback for the upcoming NFL Draft.

Having already spoken extensively with Ball State quarterback Nate Davis earlier this year, TheRanchReport.com has also confirmed the Dallas Cowboys have shown heavy interest in Fresno State signal caller QB Tom Brandstater.

Dallas, which truly has removed itself from the big-time quarterback market this offseason with the recent acquisition of backup signal caller Jon Kitna, will no doubt sign at least one undrafted free agent quarterback for training camp purposes after this year's draft.

Brandstater, who Dallas spoke with extensively at the NFL Combine, could certainly be that player.

As a senior, he completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 2,664 yards and 18 touchdowns.

At 6-feet-5 inches tall and 220 pounds, he has the size you'd like to see at the NFL level- and he's also vastly underrated with his accuracy.

His arm strength has come into question by some scouts and obviously playing in the Western Athletic Conference, he didn't see elite level competition throughout his career.

Never the less, given his size and accuracy, he will be a prime late-round candidate in next month's draft and most certainly will be picked up in free agency if he's not drafted.

Brandstater is the No. 14 quarterback available in this year's draft according to Scout.com.

Of course, with Tony Romo and Jon Kitna in the mix for 2009, Dallas appears to have addressed it's main concerns at quarterback. Any undrafted free agent or late round pick would have his work cut out for him to make the 53-man roster, or the practice squad for that matter.

The Cleveland Browns have also shown significant interest here, among other teams.
