Cowboys undrafted free agent tracker: List of players, scouting reports, and more

Jake Campos Scouting report: "Although he has below average length, Campos moves light on his feet mid-shuffle to protect vs. edge speed. He looks the part of an NFL tight end with his sturdy, large frame and the competitive spirit to match. He is an inconsistent run defender with suspect play strength for NFL work. "Overall, Ward has undeveloped play strength and instincts, but his speed and length for the position give him a fighting chance, making him an ideal practice squad corner." Player Position College Cooper Rush Florida Joe Jones Appalachian State Brian Brown Wayne State *Tryout at rookie minicamp Cooper Rush, Lewis Neal and Blake Jarwin all found their way onto the roster last season. Neal and Jarwin started off on the practice squad. Other practice squad members included Brian Brown, Dan Skipper and Nate Theaker.
How is Kyler Murray viewed as an MLB prospect? It’s complicated

How is Kyler Murray viewed as an MLB prospect? It’s complicated

Does Murray choose to stay at Oklahoma or go all-in on the 2018 MLB Draft? Baseball America did not rank Murray in its initial Top 200 list this year. Murray carried a .122 average, played in only 27 games and did not have an extra-base hit. He also played part-time, splitting his spring efforts between football and baseball. In the above video, he played a night road game and then traveled back to Norman the next day for a scrimmage. The draft questions that surround Murray Let’s establish the MLB Draft process for those not familiar with it. Murray, in his third year of college, is eligible to be drafted. So any of the 30 MLB teams can pick him in whatever round they chose. The critical factor in all of this, though, is that if a player is picked in the Top 10 rounds and doesn’t sign, the bonus money associated with that spot is subtracted from the team’s overall pool. If Murray wants to play football, he can play football.
Sooners Offer 2021 Offensive Lineman

Sooners Offer 2021 Offensive Lineman

@OU_Football #BOOMER pic.twitter.com/V4rWLcIkVj — Hayden Conner (@HaydenConner) May 5, 2018 Conner is going to be a very highly ranked player in 2021, as he already has 10 offers from the likes of OU, Georgia, Kansas State, Miami, Texas A&M, Miami, and Wisconsin. Ironically, Conner isn't the first 2021 offensive lineman that Coach Bedenbaugh's has offered for 2021, as he's offered Donovan Jackson (6’4, 270) of Houston (Christian), Texas. Those are the two schools that Jackson has visited unofficially at this point. x This video is not available. x This video is geo-restricted.

Lightning eliminate Bruins with 3-1 win in Game 5

Lightning eliminate Bruins with 3-1 win in Game 5

Thank you, Boston Bruins. Boston set the bar for us, and we played them three times late in the year,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said after his team’s 3-1 victory over the Bruins ended their second-round playoff series in five games. I guess a lot of confidence. They scored six goals to beat the Lightning in Game 1, but had difficulty scoring after that. ”We scored against Toronto, so it’s not like after 89 games we forgot how to score or not play the right way,” Cassidy added. They did a good job of not allowing us to get inside.” David Krejci scored on the power play in the final minute of the first period to give Boston a 1-0 lead that Point erased with his unassisted goal at 10:43 of the second. ”They’re a really good team. ”It is what it is,” Marchand said. The Bruins scored five goals over the final three games of the series, four of them on the power play and one short-handed. ”They help for sure, but you have to be able to produce 5-on-5.” NOTES: Bruins RW David Backes left the ice after taking a hard hit from Miller with just under eight minutes remaining in the second period.
This late-round pick is the ‘cherry on top’ of the Cowboys’ 2018 draft class…

This late-round pick is the ‘cherry on top’ of the Cowboys’ 2018 draft class…

The seemingly endless train of NFL Draft grades is still chugging along, but good news! Not only that, but Gennaro Filice and Nick Shook have proclaimed the Cowboys drafted the second-best crop in the league, trailing only the Chicago Bears. However, these grades take into account the makeup of every roster and the factors surrounding each pick. So, maybe Dallas didn't have the best draft necessarily, but the Cowboys did pretty well for themselves given the current state of the franchise. "Dallas did a fine job collecting talent at the JerryWorld Jamboree of 2018." They wrote that Cowboys first-round pick Leighton Vander Esch is a "large, freakish athlete" who "flies to the ball" and that he should immediately contribute next to Jaylon Smith and Sean Lee. Other highlights? Connor Williams can "compete" for a starting job on the left side of the Cowboys' offensive line, wide receiver Michael Gallup can contribute Year 1 and WR Cedrick Wilson has lots of sleeper potential. But, Filice and Shook say the "cherry on top" of the Cowboys' draft class is their final pick, Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough. The Cowboys are a perfect match for the power back, "who needs the kind of runway to get going that Dallas' O-line will provide.
OSU is the subject of new Golf Channel series

OSU is the subject of new Golf Channel series

Then the perfect place and scenario presented itself — Oklahoma State, home of 10 men’s golf championships, would be hosting the NCAA national championship, while Bedlam rival Oklahoma was the defending national champion. And with that, “Driven: Oklahoma State Cowboys” was presented to OSU athletics director Mike Holder — who won eight national championships as the Oklahoma State men’s golf coach — with lengthy discussions about a four-part docu-series, the first of which premieres at 9 p.m. Monday on the Golf Channel. “My thought was, if somebody is going to do a show on college golf, the first one should be Oklahoma State,” Cowboy coach Alan Bratton said Thursday. “We’ve got a lot of years of history, and a lot of people who have sacrificed and supported us to make that happen. And with us hosting the championship this year, makes perfect sense.” Making OSU the trailblazers of the show, which is written and directed by 20-time Emmy-winner Ollie Stokes, led to the program’s most popular golf alumnus becoming a part of the project. Instead, its focus is on the current Cowboy and Sooners teams — getting a look at their season on the course, while also getting a chance to see the golfers away from the game. We’re way more comfortable in front of a camera than we were when it first started.” Oklahoma State’s golf programs — both men and women — got the opportunity to preview the first episode Thursday evening at Karsten Creek Golf Club, where they also hosted a media day event to preview the NCAA Division I golf championships that will be hosted by OSU the final two weeks of May. “I thought our guys carried themselves well, and represented everything we want well,” Bratton said after watching the private showing. So this is another arm for us to reach people and show them what we are all about.” Even though the series carries the Oklahoma State Cowboys name, even their Bedlam rivals see the benefit in the series. “The script has played out perfectly with Oklahoma State playing well through the season, especially the spring, and OU, our rival, it’s about everything in school, especially on the athletics side, with them beating Oklahoma State the last two tournaments and then at conference (championships), and it’s kind of building for a nice little climax at NCAAs, which we’ll be hosting in Stillwater,” Fowler said.
Phil Jackson could have helped Mets avoid Matt Harvey mess

Phil Jackson could have helped Mets avoid Matt Harvey mess

In retrospect, there was probably one thing Phil Jackson did during his time running the Knicks that should be studied by all of New York’s sports franchises, but especially by the Mets. He wasn’t given credit for it at the time. Jackson didn’t feel it was part of his job requirement to pay constant homage to Porzingis, to treat him as an untouchable, to enable him to a degree at which it would be easy to blur the line between who works for whom. What made that so outrageous then — and it still applies — was that it was Harvey who forced that impasse because he resisted the Mets’ efforts all during that season to keep his innings under control. And every time that happened, Harvey said no. He was feeling good. He wanted to go to Jeter’s final home game rather than being with the Mets, who were playing a doubleheader in Washington that night (granted). He wanted to keep the ball in Game 5 (granted). It seemed Alderson always wanted to, but by the time he did it was too late. I see another three years of failure in New York.
Gallo homers twice, including 466-foot laser

Gallo homers twice, including 466-foot laser

Statcast: Gallo's 466-ft. homer 00:47 May 5th, 2018 ARLINGTON -- Rangers first baseman Joey Gallo hit his 11th and 12th home runs in the Rangers' 6-5 loss to the Red Sox on Saturday, and the first one on the night made a little history. View Full Game Coverage It's also the second-hardest home run by a hitter in a lefty-vs.-lefty matchup since 2015, behind only Franchy Cordero's 116.9 mph shot off Jason Vargas on April 28. Gallo saw a changeup from Rodriguez in a 2-2 count, and he crushed it down the right-field line, into the opening between the foul pole and the upper deck, landing on the main concourse beyond. The projected distance was 466 feet, tying for the third-longest by a Rangers player. Nomar Mazara's 491-foot home run on May 25, 2016, is the longest, and Gallo had a 490-foot shot on Sept. 17, 2017. Gallo also had a 466-foot home run last year, as did Rougned Odor. Gallo then cracked another solo homer with two outs in the sixth inning, again off Rodriguez. That marked the fifth two-homer game of his career and his first this season. All five have come at Globe Life Park. Follow him on Twitter @Sullivan_Ranger and listen to his podcast.
