Malcolm Rodriguez’s seamless transition linebacker
The Cowboys needed more speed at linebacker and Rodriguez provides it.
Some one-on-one conversations with defensive coordinator Jim Knowles and graduate assistant Shane Eachus, who helps with linebackers, eased Rodriguez’s mind quickly. Within three or four days of the change, he had settled in.

Listed at 6 feet tall and 205 pounds — though Gundy says he’s closer to 215 — Rodriguez is a little smaller than your prototypical linebacker. But his strength and physical nature seem to make up for it.

“Just throw all that out the window would be my advice, and go earn your keep. Actually showing people you belong there is the biggest sense of accomplishment.” The Oklahoman
