It’s no secret that the Dallas Cowboys have come to pride themselves on their ability to find and develop quality talent in the draft.
Which is why local sports fans should be pleased to find Jalen Guyton’s name among the Cowboys’ 2019 undrafted free agent signings.
Guyton, a 6’1 receiver from the University of North Texas and Allen HS alumni (where he played with Arizona QB Kyler Murray), was initially a four-star recruit courted by Notre Dame in 2015 until personal reasons saw him move back to Texas, where he played juco ball for a year before committing his talents to the Mean Green of UNT.
Of course, there are large question marks surrounding his play which are tied to his low draft stock; those of which mostly pertaining to his focus during plays and tendency to be out-muscled in coverage. However, He has the size to correct the latter, has pro-caliber arm length, and is a hell of a runner downfield. He may be a bit of a challenging project for the Cowboys’ receiving development, but it’s the kind of challenge in building up a rookie talent that Dallas has proven time and again they are capable of taking on- And everyone likes a good local hometown hero story.
Guyton posted 1,580 yards and 15 touchdowns on 103 receptions in two seasons at North Texas.
