2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A second-round pick by Dallas in 2013, Escobar hasn't gotten many chances to show what he can do behind Jason Witten, recording just nine catches in each of his first two NFL seasons for a total of 239 yards. Incredibly though, six of those 18 receptions have resulted in touchdowns, highlighting his red zone value. Escobar doesn't have much foot speed, but he possess soft hands and a huge catch radius and flashes surprising athleticism (as anyone who's seen the often-replayed video of his somersault into the end zone from the Cowboys' final game of 2013 can attest). With Witten finally beginning to show his age, Escobar's time to take on a bigger role in the offense could be now.

2014

Escobar, Dallas' second-round pick in last year's draft, is the heir-apparent to aging veteran Jason Witten, but he struggled to see the field much in 2013 (only appearing in 11.4 offensive snaps per game) due to blocking deficiencies. Still, Escobar showed flashes of his prominent receiving chops, including a highlight-reel touchdown catch in Week 17. Early reports out of Dallas indicate that Escobar has taken it upon himself to get stronger and become a more complete player, but as long as Witten remains a Cowboy, Escobar will have to wait his turn.

2013

Second round pick Escobar will compete for snaps with James Hanna in two-tight end sets as a rookie, but long term he could be the heir apparent to Jason Witten.
