FINALLY!! Dallas drafts a wide receiver
With their final pick of the NFL draft (7th round, 229th overall), the Dallas Cowboys drafted wide receiver Manuel Johnson from Oklahoma. He’s 5’11” and 189 pounds. They say he’s not particularly strong, fast or big, but he’s a hard worker in practice and plays hard during games. A consistent producer for the Sooners who missed returned after missing only one game due to a “grotesquely dislocated elbow”.
Could Johnson be a sleeper pick? We’ll find out. Here’s one thing I like: they say he’s got a good locker room presence–again, something Dallas has sorely missed.
One note: Johnson wore #1 at Oklahoma…Roy Williams already wears #11 for the Cowboys. Wouldn’t it be funny if Johnson was issued jersey #81 (Terrell Owens’ old number)?
