COLLEGE: With a need for depth at wide receiver, particularly with an open spot in the team’s productive third receiver position, the Dallas Cowboys tabbed Danny Coale in the fifth round (152nd overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. In Coale, the Cowboys have obtained a receiver with good hands and speed who also is of value on special teams. Coale finished his career at Virginia Tech as the school’s second-leading receiver in both receptions (165) and receiving yards (2,658) while also producing eight career touchdown catches and a 16.1 career yard-per-reception average. Coale also saw action as both a punt returner, where he returned 10 punts for 74 yards (7.4 avg.), and as a fill-in punter during his final season. He booted away 13 punts for a 43.5 average, including four punts over 50+ yards and a long punt of 61 yards, three punts downed inside the opponents 20-yard line and one touchback.
