NFL Draft: South Alabama WR Jalen Tolbert Selected in Third Round By Dallas Cowboys

The 2021 Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Year was taken off the board on Friday when he was taken by the Dallas Cowboys with the 88th overall pick.

Tolbert was the first player from any Sun Belt school to be selected in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Jalen Tolbert is a good fit for the Cowboys. Tracking ability comparable to an outfielder. Well built at 6-1 and 194 pounds. Can run vertically and across the middle. Should compete right away.

Tolbert finished his career as the most prolific receiver in South Alabama history.
