The Dallas Cowboys have a rich history of legendary players. Bob Lily, Randy White, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Darren Woodson are some of the players on a very long list that have made a large impact on this league.
Who will be the next one?
The Cowboys’ legends over the decades have been defined by certain attributes.
In the 70’s and 80’s players like Charlie Waters and Roger Staubach represented a hard working, blue-collar brand of Cowboys that found success through a nasty style of play and a mean attitude.
In the 90’s the Cowboys had players like Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders who exemplified the current roster of players with raw talent and swagger that eventually led to three Super Bowl titles.
As the 2013 NFL Draft draws near, we analyze who is the best fit for the team’s current philosophy.
However, I offer something different. I ask “who best embodies the attributes that have defined the Cowboys legends over the ages?”
The grade scale is simple; I look at the same attributes that have brought wins and championships to this team. Those attributes are nastiness, raw talent, hard worker and swagger.
Lets look at what prospects could be the next “Mr. Cowboy”.
