Dallas Cowboys Undrafted Free Agents: Levy Adcock Profile

New, 1 comment

How exactly does a two-time Big 12 Selection go undrafted? Not sure, but the Cowboys will take their chances that they've found a diamond in the rough in Oklahoma State's tackle Levy Adcock. In 2010, the OSU line ranked eighth nationally giving up less than one sack per game; and his teammates were ruining Adcock's average as he didn't allow a single sack the entire season.

Adcock stands at 6'6", weighing in at 322 lbs. He originally played right guard in JUCO for Northeastern Oklahoma A&M before transferring to Oklahoma State. he ran a 5.22 40 yard dash, bench pressed 225 lbs 26 times and did the 20-yard shuttle in 4.84 seconds. Unfortunately, a knee injury kept him out of the Senior Bowl and the Combine, so his numbers are from a OK State Pro Day; but the effect it had on his draft stock could be to the Cowboys benefit.

Adcock was projected to go anywhere from the 5th round to being what he ended up as; a UDFA. There were 18 tackles selected in the 2012 NFL Draft. National Football Post's Wes Bunting had him ranked as the 12th best OT prospect.

...settles his feet well, sits back into his stance and can anchor routinely on contact.... strong lower half and natural short area quickness when asked to mirror, even in space. Lacks ideal athleticism toward the edge, but has good enough range to get a look as a left tackle, athletically though looks better suited to play on the right side in the NFL

The concern is that he has trouble with speed rushers and tends to give up on his generally quality technique when he knows there is a speed element he is going to have to deal with. Could a move to guard be in his future? It's a possibility.

Obviously, Dallas has depth issues at the tackle position, with only Tyron Smith, Doug Free and Jeremy Parnell signed. They've given Adcock a $9,000 signing bonus for the rookie camp; now we'll see if he can earn a permanent paycheck and add depth to a position of need.
