2014 NFL Draft: Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans to work out Iowa TE C.J. Fiedorowicz


With Eric Ebron and Jace Amaro leading the charge this year for the NFL Draft as far as the tight end position goes, it’s easy to overlook Iowa product, C.J. Fiedorowicz. However, two teams that are not overlooking what he brings to the table are the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans, both of whom are set to put Fiedorowicz through some private sessions.

Fiedorowicz held his pro day Monday and was worked out by Bengals tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes, but will perform private workouts on the Iowa campus Friday for the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.

As far as the Cowboys go, the on-the-field chemistry between Tony Romo and Jason Witten is unrivaled, but it certainly wouldn’t hurt to get another pass-catching threat on the line of scrimmage to take some attention away from Witten, thus creating more open opportunities.

A tight end move at some point int he draft for the Texans also makes sense as they revitalize their offense under Bill O’Brien, who is certainly not shy in utilizing multiple tight ends with his offenses.
