Former OSU defensive back Tyler Patmon drawing praise from Dallas Cowboys Published: August 26, 2014

Dallas Cowboys defensive back Tyler Patmon turned heads against the Miami Dolphins Saturday with two interceptions, including one for touchdown, and a forced fumble.

But the former Oklahoma State player has been turning heads throughout preseason camp.

“As soon as he came in, he’s one of those guys that’s got that type of mentality, swagger about himself where when he walks in, he kind of (commands) that attention,” Cowboys defensive back Morris Claiborne told “He goes out and he plays lights out. It goes from the practice field, from seeing him work and taking it on to practice and from practice to the games, it’s amazing.”

The Cowboys' next round of cuts is today, with NFL teams required to trimed down rosters to 75 players. Patmon's performance on Saturday may have bought him a spot on the Cowboys' 53-man roster.
