Washington Kinders LB Cole Holcomb puts the Dallas Cowboys as the game he looks forward to more than anything else.


Approaching the fourth year of his career, Washington captain Cole Holcombe He set his sights on facing the Dallas Cowboys who chose not to enlist again in 2019. The Cowboys had two picks in the fifth round and passed Holcomb with both which set him on fire.

“I originally thought I was going to Dallas,” Holcomb said via Commanders.com“I was a little angry that day. But then obviously I was really excited when I got the call from Washington.”

out of North Carolina, Lance Zerlin from NFL.com Holcomb gave a drop draft that made him go down in the fifth or sixth round while smashing his ability.

“The midfielder is quick to run and chase with the eyes and instincts to diagnose and respond quickly, but he lacks critical handling skills at the point of attack,” Zierlein said. “He has side-to-side streak range, but needs to play with less reaction and a more demanding playing behavior in attack on the slopes. Holcomb’s outstanding professional numbers should propel his draft value up the board as a reserve tripod back and a key special team squad.”

While Holcomb is excited to take on Dallas, the rookie WR is the captain Jahan Dotson Share this enthusiasm in a similar way when talking about joining the organization.

“Honestly, you’ll probably hear me say this a lot, but the dream came true. It’s been a crazy 24 hours before this moment. It’s everything I’ve been dreaming about and honestly the most, especially having my family and friends here with me. It’s literally all I could dream of. It’s really a dream come true. It’s something I’ve been working towards my whole life, and I’m happy to be in this moment.”

Dotson He benefited from a major major season in first-round position in the 2022 NFL Draft when the Washington captains picked him for 16th overall last week. The former 4-star rookie isn’t extensive in the 5-foot-11, 178-pound roster, but he ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash and was very productive for the Nittany Lions, making 91 receptions for 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns last fall.

The Pennsylvania native plays bigger than he is—he scored a 36-inch vertical jump at the NFL Combine—and is hard to catch the ball in his hands. Dotson should also be ready to contribute immediately, entering the NFL with plenty of college experience.

Dotson said, “I had a feeling so many recipients were going so early that maybe my name would be called, but honestly with NFL Draft you have no idea. You honestly don’t. And I had no idea where I was going, what choice I would have been.” “So it was so cool and I’m so grateful to be here. Playing in the NFL has always been my dream and being close to home, it’s amazing. Not so far from home and being able to have my family here, it’s amazing.”
