Draft Scout *Randy Gregory News
05/21/15 - DE Randy Gregory, selected by the Cowboys in the second round of the draft (60th overall), signed a four-year contract Wednesday (May 20).
Gregory, a pass rusher out of Nebraska, slipped to the 60th pick overall amid concerns about marijuana use -- he failed a drug test at the Combine -- and his mental health.
"I think a lot of people are getting tied up in the weed and think it's just a weed problem. I don't think it's a weed problem," Gregory said in an ESPN Radio interview after the Cowboys picked him. "I think it's decision making. I think I'm immature. I'm definitely working on that."
"I know I made a mistake," Gregory added. "I know there is only so much I can say. Talk is cheap sometimes. I really want to show these guys what I can do and I am really serious about what I say. I gave that staff my word plenty of times, and I really feel like they believe me."
05/04/15 - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is giddy about what his team accomplished in the draft, especially their ability to continue a complete overhaul on defense. The Cowboys took defensive players with five of the first six picks led by cornerback Byron Jones and defensive end Randy Gregory in the first and second rounds respectively. Add that to what the Cowboys accomplished in free agency, the return to health of Sean Lee and the continued development of some of the young defensive players they added last year and Jones said this is a completely different unit than the one that struggled to get pressure on quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the NFC Divisional playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers.
"Gosh when you look down through there, potential and everything is potential," Jones said. "But when you look at the positions and everything on the defense I couldn't have asked for more in this draft. We addressed some key positions. Weak-side linebacker is a key position for us. Pressure player is a key position for us. And certainly in this particular place, corner was key. Put it all together this thing has been a major overhaul on defense. This is a very significant sea change of what we are doing on defense and it's all for the better. We are dramatically improved personnel wise from the team that was on the field against Rodgers in the playoff game against Green Bay." - The Sports Xchange
05/04/15 - The Cowboys believe they have a support system in place to help Gregory. "We got very comfortable with our discussions with him. He communicated well with the coaches. We are comfortable with that pick," Jones said. "If things work out, we have a support system in place for a player of his character that goes to the top of the organization. We invest a lot into that. It gives us confidence we can work through the issues that caused him to drop and help him contribute to us winning." Gregory plans to work with Jerry Jones to put himself in the best situation to succeed. He even asked the Cowboys during his visit in April about having some type of accountability partner to help his transition to the NFL. "I have had some bumps in the road along the way," Gregory said. "What better guys to help me out with that than Jerry Jones, coach Jason Garrett and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli. They are great mentors and great leaders. It was something I mentioned. It was something I felt like I needed. It worked out because they felt the same way. It's a great spot for me." - The Sports Xchange
05/04/15 - The Cowboys feel like they got two first-round picks with the selection of Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory falling to them in the second round because of a failed drug test and reported mental health issues. The Jerry Jones-led Cowboys have a history of taking chances on troubled defensive linemen, including Charles Haley, Alonzo Spellman, Dimitrius Underwood, Tank Johnson and current player Greg Hardy. Hardy has been suspended for the first 10 games of the 2015 season for violating the personal conduct policy. Gregory promises to stop smoking marijuana and believes he is on the right team to help him get his life in order. "I'm going to have to," Gregory said. "In order for me to be successful and in order for me to help this team out I'm going to have to. That's something I had to shut down and promise myself I would get under control. It's not so much about that, it's about bad decision making. It's about maturing, and I've done, believe it or not, a lot of maturing over the last few weeks and I feel like this staff can help me get to a whole new level with that. I'm just so excited to work with them, I really am." - The Sports Xchange
05/04/15 - A closer look at the Cowboys' eight picks: Round 2/60 - Randy Gregory, DE, 6-5, 235, Nebraska...Gregory fills a huge need on the field as a talented edge rusher. But he is troubled as his stock dropped in the draft because of a failed drug test at the NFL Combine in February. - The Sports Xchange
