Last year’s epic Rose Bowl Game between Georgia and Oklahoma featured a lot of star players and it seems they all found their way on to NFL rosters. That is after former Georgia safety Dom Sanders signed a contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.
Sanders, the man who instigated a huge momentum shift in Pasadena after picking off No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield, will give Dallas a boost to their defensive depth. It was surprising to see Sanders, who is tied with Kirby Smart for most career interceptions at Georgia, not get snagged up earlier in the summer, but the Cowboys certainly got themselves a steal.
The 5-11, 193 lb safety out of Tucker, Georgia will finally get a shot to prove himself in the remaining weeks of the preseason before final roster decisions are made. NFL.com’s prospect grading system has Sanders at a 4.99 and believes he “should be in an NFL training camp.”
