PRO: With their final selection of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys chose Sean Lissemore in the seventh round (234th overall). Viewed as either a defensive end or nose tackle in the Cowboys 3-4 scheme, Lissemore brings a high-motor playing intensity that fits well along a defensive line that also boasts a player known for a similar playing style in Pro Bowler Jay Ratliff. Despite showing flashes of being able to produce in Dallas’ defensive line rotation, Lissemore played in only two games as a rookie before injuring his ankle at Green Bay (11/7), forcing him to miss the next four games before being placed on the Reserve/Injured list on Dec. 4, 2010. He returned in 2011 as a key cog in Dallas’ defensive line rotation. Lissemore played as a reserve lineman in all 16 games and finished with 39 tackles, a pair of sacks, two tackles for losses and five pressures.
