It’s been “Switzer! Switzer! Switzer!” since the Cowboys drafted receiver Ryan Switzer in the fourth round with plans to make him a significant part of their offense. But the Cowboys have another receiver they drafted who has potential they are “excited” about.

The Cowboys made Noah Brown the 239th overall selection, and he will compete for a roster spot.

“[Brown] is a little bit of an all-around guy,” Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s an outside receiver with a big frame. He’s kind of got a ‘tweener’ size (6-2, 222) when it comes to receiver. He’s got a little bit of a TE element to his game as far as his size and the matchup and the people he’s blocking. So he should match up well in that area.
“He’s a good receiver, too. He has a real consistent game, and he’s a smart kid, so we’re excited about him.”

Brown missed the 2015 season because of a leg injury. He caught 32 passes for 402 yards and seven touchdowns last season, including three scores against Oklahoma.

He played only 24 games at Ohio State, so his lack of experience made him available in the seventh round. But with an endorsement from former teammate Ezekiel Elliott, Brown received a phone call from the Cowboys.

Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley and Switzer are locks to make the 53-player roster if healthy. That leaves Butler and Brown to compete for the fifth and possibly final spot. The Cowboys re-signed Butler to a one-year, $1.1 million deal in the offseason.

  1. Only way he can sneak onto the 53 man roster is if he is incredibly fast and becomes the primary Kick off/punt returner. Dallas’ wide receiver core is very talented and would be difficult debunking any of those guys. Good luck kid. You just never know in this league kid and your number may be called next. Be ready.

  2. Funny how the cowboys only rave about how good their players are, even after they’ve been cut or suspended.

  3. Charean, I love you but you failed to establish Butler as Brice Butler. I know who he is and you know who he is but I doubt that all non-Cowboys fans would know the name of a guy that may or may not make the their roster.

  4. So maybe, just maybe, the Cowboys are so loaded that they will actually win a playoff game? That is assuming they make it to the playoffs this year.

  5. All of the propaganda coming out about the cowboys is just and only that… propaganda. This is how they’ve become the most popular team in the league… maybe in all of sports… despite not even reaching a conference title game in the last 20+ years!
    I am a lifelong cowboys fan. Every year my entire season rests on these cowboys games… and then in the offseason it’s studying their FA moves, draft, camp battles, then another season… the Dallas Cowboys for me are a 24/7 entity… they have been that way a part of my life since I was 10 years old…
    This team has been breaking my heart for decades now.. so I do not become excited or “optimistic” about the propaganda. There have been years where I thought for sure they were super bowl contenders… even favorites… to only go out and lose the first playoff game they played… last year was no exception.
    I do like the current trajectory the team is on. Mackay, Stephen , and JG seem to have an ideal in place and it seems to be working as far as personnel goes… better roster and FA decisions BY FAR!…
    But when this team actually you know….. WINS SOMETHING…. then I’ll get excited

  6. Sound like u guys need to post on ur team site instead of hating on our post 13-3 STATS DON’T LIE WE BUILD OUR TEAM THOUGH THE DRAFT NOW THE RIGHT WAY HALF U GUYS CRYING ABOUT US CAUSE WE ALREADY PUT FOOT IN YALL BUTTS…… HATERS……DROPS THE MIC AND WALKS OFF THE STAGE…….BYE HATERS
