Cowboys Agree to Terms w/ Three Draft Picks

The Dallas Morning News reports that the team has inked three more draft picks:

With players scheduled to report to San Antonio in less than 24 hours, the Cowboys have reached agreements on four-year contracts with three more rookies – Texas Tech’s Brandon Williams, safety Mike Hamlin and kicker David Buehler – leaving three more to sign before Wednesday’s first practice.

Third-rounders Jason Williams and Robert Brewster as well as quarterback Stephen McGee have yet to agree to contracts.

With Greg Ellis cut, the Cowboys are counting on Williams and Victor Butler to produce as pass rushers as rookies. Williams is converting from defensive end at Texas Tech to outside linebacker and impressed Wade Phillips in the organized team activities and mini-camp with his natural pass rush. He was a first-team All-Big 12 pick after leading the conference with 11 sacks in 2008.

Hamlin, who is represented by Dallas-based agent, Jordan Woy, started a school-record 43 games at Clemson and his 14 interceptions are third-most in Tigers’ history. At 6-2, 214 pounds, Hamlin will play mostly strong safety, however, he does have range in coverage. He will also be counted on to contribute to special teams.

Buehler was the Cowboys’ most intriguing selection because they already had a Pro Bowler in Nick Folk. But Buehler will do more than just kick off. The plan is for him to play some other special teams’ spots, but kicking off will be his specialty where he had 69 touchbacks at Southern Cal. Folk did not have a touchback last season and is coming off off-season hip surgery.
