3. In The Film Room: Cowboys Draft "Pick" J.J. Wilcox & The "Jump" Technique

[This is just one example of Wilcox showing the ability to play down hill and make plays. On tape I've seen him come hard down hill at good angles and make solid open field tackles, delivering a blow to the RB and wrapping up to finish the play to the ground, and this isn't the only example I've seen of him making a similar break on a crossing route and beating the receiver to the ball.]


4. Rookie camp gives Cowboys a peek at the future and the present

[One of the Cowboys’ biggest needs heading into the draft was at safety, but they didn’t address the position until they took Georgia Southern’s J.J. Wilcox in the third round. His pedigree doesn’t scream walk-in starter. He is from a small school and has only played safety one year after moving over from receiver as a senior. Wilcox has elite athleticism and is fearless, but he is raw. The Cowboys need him to be a fast learner for him to have an impact as a rookie.]

"I've known him for the last three years," Holiday said Wednesday in a telephone interview. "He's somebody I trust, and somebody I'd love as a head coach."]
