Dallas Cowboys rookie Ryan Switzer doesn’t hold any illusions that the he will surpass Dez Bryant as the team’s No. 1 wide receiver.
Standing 5-foot-8 and weighing 181-pounds, the former UNC standout more fits the Wes Welker mold. If you ask one security guard at the Cowboys facility, however, he fits the Dan Bailey mold more than anything else.
While on his way in to the facility, Switzer was misidentified as the Cowboys new kicker.
That has to sting.
Switzer was the go-to receiver for the Tar Heels through his college career. He amassed 2,907 yards on 244 receptions and 19 touchdowns. He was named an All-American twice during his career.
You can expect him to line up in the slot and work over the middle of the field at the NFL level.
Switzer’s build is slight, but the fact that it is considered shameful to be mistaken for a kicker is an insult to kickers everywhere. They’re the real victim in this story.
