Cowboys draft pick Ryan Switzer is the rare ‘Wes Welker type’ who actually plays like him

That’s one of the seven punt returns he brought back to the house for touchdowns and the fifth he had as a freshman in 2013. Even if wideout doesn’t work out at the next level, he’s got a role set with skills like that.

He wasn’t a slouch as a WR, though. As a senior, UNC’s career receptions record-holder was voted first-team All-ACC and had 96 receptions, good for 10th nationally. That included a game in which he hauled in 16 catches from Mitchell Trubisky, the likely first QB off the board in this year’s draft.

So now let’s discuss the comparison that gets made about some smaller wide receiver every year, especially if it’s a white guy: “Wes Welker type.”

“Yeah, it’s happened quite a bit,’’ Welker himself said about hearing the comparison. “When I left [Texas Tech], my coaches would say, ‘He’s a Wes Welker type of guy,’ and everything like that. So it’s kind of everywhere now, which is cool.”

Switzer was selected in the fourth round by the Dallas Cowboys. Quinn isn’t doing this alone. He’s working alongside Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff to build the roster, and the partnership has been productive.
