Dallas Cowboys To Add Defensive Line Help By Signing DT David Irving

Multiple sources are reporting that the Dallas Cowboys will sign defensive tackle David Irving from the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad and will be placed on the Cowboys 53 man roster pending his physical.


David Irving-Scouting Report (Via NFL.Com)
Charged with domestic assault in November 2013 after an incident with the mother of his child. Was suspended for a game, but charges were dropped two months later. In April 2014, took part in VEISHEA, which was the largest student run festival in the nation, bringing in tens of thousands of visitors to the campus each year. A riot ensued and a picture of Irving in contact with a stop sign made its way onto social media. He was charged with fifth-degree theft, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. He was dismissed from the team following the incident.
Pro Day Results
40-yard dash: 4.84 seconds
Vertical jump: 38 inches
Broad jump: 10 feet, 8 inches
Short shuttle: 4.53 seconds
3-cone: 7.27 seconds

Strengths (Based on 2013 tape) Has a great frame with room to fill out into much thicker player. Long arms with ability to keep blockers off of him. Does a nice job with his hands, getting quick punch and working to control the line of scrimmage. Moves well down the line and plays off of the guard on stretch plays, looking to leverage the outside shoulder. Operates with quick swim move. Good motor and will pursue down the field.

Weaknesses (Based on 2013 tape) Frame is thin for interior line position. Showed some ability to hold up at point of attack, but leverage is a concern on push pocket as pass rusher.

Draft Projection: Round 5 or 6
