MEET YOUR NEWEST DALLAS COWBOY: Defensive tackle Frank Kearse | Scouting Report

MEET YOUR NEWEST DALLAS COWBOY - Defensive tackle Frank Kearse - Scouting Report - Dallas Cowboys roster 2013 2014

IRVING, Texas – A quick look at new defensive tackle Frank Kearse, who the Dallas Cowboys added to their roster earlier this week.

Frank Kearse:   6-4 | 315 | 5.31 40-yard dash | Alabama A&M.

    Drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the seventh round of 2011 NFL Draft

    Game film studied:

    Carolina 2012 season against Miami, Kansas City, Atlanta, San Diego.

    • Has spent time with the Dolphins and Panthers before landing on the practice squad of the Titans this season.

    • Will play as a one-technique in this scheme. Might be better suited to play as an end in a 3-4 but gives you some size inside at the one.

    • Is not that quick-twitch type of player that Rod Marinelli is accustomed to playing with, but his power is impressive.

    • Gets more push with power and upper body strength than he does with pass rush moves. Can walk blockers back.

    • Can be difficult to move at the point of attack at times. Able to hold up against double teams. Observed him holding off blocker with one arm.

    • Is active when it comes to moving down the line and working toward the ball. Showed some mobility.

    • Was able to redirect and change directions. Not a stiff moving player. Can play the low block and keep balance.

    • Had a nice sack against the Falcons where he defeated the double team with power, collapsed the pocket on Matt Ryan.

    • Was very impressed how he battled Max Unger from the Seahawks. In the plays he had, never allowed him to control him in the running game.

    • There were some snaps where I thought he could have played better with his hands, and when he didn’t that got him in trouble. Would help him shed blockers better.
