Cowboys | Fasano could have big role in the offense

Jean-Jacques Taylor, writing for the Sporting News, reports Dallas Cowboys rookie TE Anthony Fasano is going to have a significant role in the Cowboys' offense, in part, because head coach Bill Parcells said the second-round draft choice reminds him of former NFL TE Mark Bavaro. Fasano is a good receiver who does a nifty job of finding soft spots in zones, and Parcells really likes the fact that his hands measured 10 inches at the NFL Combine. Fasano will also be the Cowboys' move tight end, which means they'll use him in motion and as a lead blocker. The team also feels he will also pose a problem in the passing game because he's bigger than most safeties and faster than most linebackers.
