Cowboys Interested in Pass Rusher from Tyler: Report

The Dallas Cowboys are intrigued by Houston pass rusher and North Texas native Tyus Bowser, according to a report.

According to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, the Cowboys' coaching staff has shown a lot of interest in the Tyler native. Brugler added he doesn't think Bowser is "Plan A," but that he's an option at No. 28.

Bowser really only produced at a high level in eight games for the Cougars, but his stock has skyrocketed in the last few months, mainly due to his testing at the NFL Scouting Combine. The 6-foot-2½-inch, 247 pounder showed the elite burst, quickness and strength that has NFL teams drooling.

It took Bowser a while to translate his athleticism to the football field. After being named to the Texas 4A All-State Team as a senior at John Tyler High School, the 3-star recruit committed to Houston over several Big 12 and SEC schools.

Bowser posted mediocre production for three seasons before breaking out as a senior. Despite missing five games due to a broken orbital bone sustained in a fight with a teammate, he finished the season with 8.5 sacks and 12 tackles for loss. His play during his shortened senior season earned him second-team all-conference honors and an invitation to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.
