Posted Apr 29, 2007

The Cowboys selected this former quarterback who looks to play wide receiver in the NFL in the fourth round.

HOW IT HAPPENED: The Cowboys picked up this fourth round pick (No. 103 overall) from the Cleveland Browns on the first day of the draft. The trade sent a second round pick (No. 53 overall) and a sixth round pick (No. 195) to Cleveland for the Browns' third round selection (No. 67), a fourth round pick (No. 103) and a sixth round pick (No. 168).

STANBACK QUOTE: “I'm a team guy. I'll do whatever it takes to get ‘Ws’. I've helped out at receiver and kick returner earlier in my career when I wasn't able to play the position of quarterback, because Cody Pickett was there. It was something I've done before and I'm still willing to do, but I have my goals and I have things I want to get accomplished and I think I'm more of a threat at quarterback."

SCOUT.COM RANKING: No. 9 (Quarterback)

SCOUTING REPORT: Isaiah Stanback
BIO: Two-year starter who posted 53.4%/1,325/10/3 in eight games last year as a quarterback. Underwent season-ending foot surgery in October. Junior passing totals included 2,136 yards.

POSITIVE: Athletic passer whose game made major strides before his injury. Patient in the pocket, Pos:sesses a live arm and gets passes through the tight spots. Easily drives the ball downfield with a flick of his wrist. Stands strong in the pocket and for the most part makes good decisions.

NEGATIVE: Does not consistently sense the rush.

FINAL: A solid athlete with NFL arm strength, Stanback was making big strides before being sidelined with the foot injury. Offers potential at a number of positions yet will be under center at the start of his pro career.
