Broaddus On Cowboys Cornerbacks

Bryan Broaddus moves on to defensive backs and takes a look this morning at the corners on the roster. He likes what he sees, including from Orlando Scandrick:

Orlando Scandrick is a gritty, gutsy type of cover guy. He plays in the slot, which is the most difficult position to cover. He has to carry a man all over the field. He went through a rough stretch after his Week 2 start against the Giants but rallied to finish the season strong. He can play slot or outside and has been used at safety some, too. He's fearless as a tackler and has good instincts to read routes. He can probably take Newman's spot in the not-too-distant future.

Broaddus doesn't see dpeth as an issue, calling Alan Ball and AOA solid depth, although Gerry Fraley disagrees with him on the fourth corner.

In the NFL, a team can never have enough cornerbacks.

That's why the Dallas Cowboys will go to training camp with a nagging concern at the seemingly low-profile position of fourth cornerback. No one emerged from the pack of contenders during Organized Team Activities and minicamps. If that pattern continues during camp, the Cowboys will have a problem.

The team is putting a whole lot on Ball's plate heading into camp.
