The Cowboys need defensive linemen. And multiple defensive linemen in the draft pool would like to play for the Cowboys. The question is whether they’ll be there when the Cowboys are on the clock.
And whether the Cowboys will move up the board to get them.
A day after Pitt’s Aaron Donald visited Big D, UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr arrived. And he talked about his interest in the Cowboys.
“There’s pros and cons to every team and everywhere you go, but if I were a Cowboy, that would be really a blessing, truly a dream come true – a team I watched growing up,” Barr said, via the team’s official website. “It would just be surreal. I would be really appreciative to be here.”
During his visit, Barr spent time with defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.
“He showed me a lot of tape of [Julius] Peppers and Simeon Rice and [Warren] Sapp, so I think he wants me playing that defensive right end position to go after the quarterback, and that’s something I’m all for,” Barr said.
Barr also was a little star struck by the folks from the team with the blue star.
“I met Jerry Jones last night, and I couldn’t believe it,” Barr said. “I couldn’t even talk at first, like, ‘This is Jerry Jones.’ It was a pretty cool experience, so these guys get my respect right off the bat.”
He’ll get their respect if he becomes a Cowboy, and if he helps lead the team back to the days of glory.
