The Dallas Cowboys brought in Ohio State wideout Brian Robiskie for a workout. According to Matt Mosely of ESPN.com, the Cowboys have been enamored with Robiskie for a long time.

Robiskie, from Cleveland, Ohio, is listed by the Buckeyes as 6’3″, 199 pounds. In his senior season, he recorded 42 receptions for 535 yards and 8 touchdowns. He seems to have a flair for the spectacular catch. He runs sharp routes and sports a great pair of hands.

In the OSU player highlight video (below), one thing that jumps out at me is the absence of YAC (yards after catch). He appears to go down pretty easily, even with a flailing arm tackle. Scouts, Inc gives him a grade of 76. They rank him 75th overall and number 11 at his position.

That number 11 ranking is just another sign of the depth of the 2009 wide receiver crop. Surely, the Cowboys will find some help at that position in the draft this year.

Gene has been an avid Dallas Cowboys fan for nearly five decades, which amounts to just about his entire life. The only time he was not a Cowboys fan was that brief period at the beginning of his life, when he didn't have all his baby teeth and could not yet say "Cowboys." As soon as quit slobbering, he started hollering, "Go Cowboys!"


How good would T.O. have been if he had Robiskie's hands?
