Frogs in the NFL Draft
Dawson was really impressive as a senior linebacker, leading the Big 12 in tackles and earning conference defensive player of the year honors while leading the Horned Frogs to a title. But concerns about his work ethic and desire to play the game lingered throughout the draft process, and a less than stellar performance at the combine only furthered his drop on boards.
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Paul Dawson, selected out of TCU in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft, is drawing comparisons with Vontaze Burfict -- the Bengals all-star linebacker. When asked about the comparison, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther didn't necessarily agree; though styles were comparable.
Tayo Fabuluje (pronounced Fab-uh-loo-jay), who was born in Nigeria before moving to the U.S. as an infant, fielded some questions from the media earlier today and we have some of the highlights from that teleconference.
The Dallas Cowboys have had plenty of success at finding hidden gems when they sign undrafted free agents. Look no further than quarterback Tony Romo, who went undrafted out of Eastern Illinois.
So the Cowboys would like to continue that trend going forward, and executive vice president Stephen Jones believes they will sign a solid core group of undrafted free agents. Among those in this year’s class include Baylor wide receiver Antwan Goodley and TCU defensive tackle Chucky Hunter.
Alex Young gave up three hits over eight innings, leading fifth-ranked TCU to a 5-0 victory Sunday and a sweep of its Big 12 series against West Virginia.
Young (9-2) was outstanding on the mound, firing eight scoreless innings of three-hit baseball. He faced more than three batters in an inning just three times. Twice a lead-off walk was erased on a double play and once he caught the runner trying to steal to end the inning. Trey Teakell allowed two hits and struck out two in his lone inning of work to preserve the shutout.
