DeMarvion Overshown’s Progress Since the 2023 NFL Draft
It would be a loss for the Cowboys to lose Overshown in any capacity since he has had one of the strongest camps on the team.
He had multiple interceptions during camp and continued to grow as he flew from sideline to sideline. Not only is Overshown a defensive threat but a special teams force as well. He is a versatile player that can add to both units.
Overshown has showcased his work ethic and willingness to learn as he has received mentorship from Micah Parsons.
He can see the field from all aspects of the game since he converted from a safety to a linebacker at the University of Texas in 2020.
#Cowboys linebacker DeMarvion Overshown is quicker than fast making the interception 👀🔥
