Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Cowboys picks: Round 6/179 -- Sam Young, OT, 6-8, 316, Notre Dame: He started four straight years at Notre Dame, which speaks volumes. He blocks his man, although he lacks great lateral quickness. Young will be tried out at right tackle. - by The Sports Xchange
