Paul Dawson Scouting Report | Acme Packing Company

One candidate to fill Hawk's shoes is 6-foot, 235-pound Paul Dawson out of TCU.  Long story short, Dawson had a very productive 2014 on the field (13 games, 136 total tackles, 20 for a loss, plus 4 INT), but was slow and sloppy at the combine (4.93 40, 28.0" vertical, did not participate in 3-cone drill).
