RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Veteran slot cornerback provides a steady inside presence for the Cowboys defense, but Scandrick has very limited IDP value.
"Backup" cornerback specializes in slot coverage, a role that gives him almost as many snaps as the starters given the number of three-wide sets around the NFL these days. Scandrick's steady, but he's not special.
Scandrick was a little more active out of the slot in the pass rush but otherwise his development seemed to stall, and the Cowboys will be looking for a better performance from him in 2011.
Taken in the fifth round in 2008 Scandrick proved to be a steal, matching first-round pick Mike Jenkins in performance. If Scandrick wins the competition for a starting spot between the two in camp, he has the skill set to be an IDP surprise.
Rookie will provide secondary and special teams depth if he sticks.
