Undrafted Series: Evaluating 2 O-Line Rookie Free Agents Expected To Sign

FRISCO, Texas – Now that the NFL Draft has ended, the Cowboys are expected to sign a group of undrafted rookies to their 90-man offseason roster.

Though not official, 14 undrafted free agents have announced via social media that they plan to sign with the Cowboys in time for this weekend's rookie minicamp. Here's a closer look at two more:

*C/G Michael Coe, North Dakota (6-3, 304)  *

Highly competitive player. Lined up as the left tackle and center during the 2016 season. Physically not the biggest guy but will hold his own when he goes toe-to-toe with guys from Richmond and Bowling Green. Initial quickness and foot speed is very good. Plays with a burst. Good range. Can play with lateral mobility. Pulled both at center/offensive tackle. Contact balance is very good. Can hold his man in place. Cover/shield blocker. Good body control. Doesn't get knocked back from his man. Amazing that he is able to hold his guy in place, being that his hands tend to go wide instead of going inside. Tends to carry his hands low then wide. Works extremely hard to finish. Not going to give up on a block. Is better when the defender is tight on him. There are snaps where he struggles to get his man on the second level. When he is good, can catch and steer. Doesn't see many games at this level. Didn't appear lost or out of place with his assignments. Going to need to play center or guard in the NFL.

OT Levon Myers, Northern Illinois (6-5, 309)

Made 26 starts during his college career. Position/shield blocker. Not going to overpower his man. Likes to turn him wide from the play. Does a really nice job of playing on his feet. It's rare that you see him on the ground. Reach and steer. There are times where he feet do stop and that gets him in trouble. Good down blocker. There is some nastiness in the way he finishes his block. Can be a tick slow coming off the snap and this limits him on the second level. Doesn't get knocked back in his pass set. Does a good job of holding his man in place. Will get in trouble on his set when he misses with his hands. Struggles to get them back in place to slow the rusher down. Nice football intelligence. Able to adjust to his man. Doesn't get fooled on games/stunts. Will help when he is uncovered. Will need to develop some upper/lower power and strength in order to have a chance for success. Practice squad/developmental type of player. Had a chance to play at Wisconsin but opted for Northern Illinois instead, so talent is there.
