Tyler Patmon is making a strong case to make the 53-man roster for the Dallas Cowboys.

The Vista Ridge High School alumni was an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State University and is the son of Bastrop High School head football coach Todd Patmon.

In Dallas' recent preseason game vs Miami, Patmon picked off two Dolphin passes, returned one for a touchdown, and forced a fumble.

The rookie defensive back is not guaranteed to make the team, but before the game vs Miami, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said on the KRLD-FM pre-game show that he would have his eyes on Patmon.
