Cowboys Sign 7th Rounder, DT Ken Bishop

Bishop was drafted by the Cowboys with the 251st overall pick



    The Dallas Cowboys have announced that they’ve signed seventh round pick Ken Bishop, a nose tackle out of Northern Illinois.

    Bishop is modestly sized at 6-foot-nothing and 301 pounds, but he possesses the strength and the motor to disrupt the run game in a potentially major way. He was selected by the Cowboys with the 251st overall pick.

    "On my visit I was able to speak with all the coaches," Bishop said after the draft, per the Dallas Morning News. "They told me that they really liked me and I would really fit the system. I had a good feeling that I would have an opportunity."

    Like just about every defensive lineman that has come to Dallas in the past couple years, Bishop is excited to work with defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.

    "Knowing that he coached one of the greatest d-tackles (Warren Sapp) as well, that really motivated me to try to be a Dallas Cowboy," Bishop said. "That was the team that I really wanted to go to."
