The Senior Bowl is this afternoon in Mobile, Ala., and the Cowboys drafted three players who participated in the game last year.

Scouts Inc., Scott Muench said there are some good fits for the Cowboys among the players taking part in today's game.

Muench said he likes linebackers Chris Borland of Wisconsin and Jonathan Brown from Illinois for the Cowboys. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews from Vanderbilt is another player of interest.

"He's been up and down, but I like him on tape," Muench said of Matthews. "He's been OK, he has to work on his ability to get off the press. He hasn't caught contested balls as much as I though he would."

The Cowboys could use an upgrade at one of their outside linebacker spots with the inconsistent play of Bruce Carter and the injuries sustained by Justin Durant.

"A head up player, a little up and down about him," Muench said of Brown. "He tackles well when you throw on the tape."

Muench believes the Cowboys need to get a defensive end, if they bypass on that, of course upgrading the tackle position would be good. Not so much finding a replacement for Tyron Smith, but for right tackle Doug Free.

"I would say if they're not going to take an edge rusher early and there might not be a guy for them really where they’re picking," Muench said.
