Cowboys nab a pass-catching TE in Gavin Escobar

A couple weeks ago, I penned a highly controversial post about Jason Witten and his 110 not-so-scary receptions last season. The gist of it was that while Witten led all NFL tight ends in catches and yards, his yards per catch, yards per target, and TD totals were down. As a result, opposing teams who are more than happy to play a “bend but don’t break” style of defense should have little reason to fear him.

The Cowboys could use a big target who can stretch the field and score TDs when the Cowboys get down into the red zone. Escobar could be that guy. Here are his college numbers:

Note Escobar’s impressive yards per catch and TD totals. He’s not as much of a blocker, but look at the big man get down the field and make plays:

On a side note, is that the oddest football highlight background music you’ve ever heard?

    Martellus Bennett part Deux minus the blocking ability. Has a better head than the black unicorn and that’s where he’s likely to shine.
