ESPN's Dilfer loves Cowboys pick

ESPN NFL analyst Trent Dilfer on Dallas Cowboys' fourth-round pick David Arkin, offesnvie tackle from Missouri State who will convert to guard.

"This is one of my sleeper offensive linemen. I love the big uglies that are nasty. David Arkin has all the qualities it takes to be a big-time guard in this leage. It's hard to find good offensive guards in this league. ... He's still growing into his body. He's a lot like Jahri Evans [the Saints' Pro Bowl guard who was a fourth-round pick from Bloomsburg State] a few years ago, a small college offensive tackle moving to guard."

Arkin was the 110th overall pick. The Denver Broncos took a safety, Oklahoma's Quinton Carter, a high-character guy who played through a lingering neck injury with the Sooners, two picks before Arkin.

The Eagles have drafted a potential replacement for longtime stalwart kicker David Akers with the fourth-round pick of Nebraska super foot Alex Henery.

Someone tell Trent that Jahri Evans went to Bloomsburg University...not Bloomsburg State. A quick google search would have showed him that!

I think this guy can come in and compete right away with an aging and often injured davis and kosier.4th round pick for someone who could be a solid starter would be nice based on how other drafts have gone with offensive lineman on the cowboys.

Trent Dilfer is an idiot... He was terrible at football and he is even worse at talking the game....
