The Dallas Cowboys may be out of the playoffs after a disappointing Wild Card loss at home to the Green Bay Packers, but they are already making moves during the offseason in hopes of getting better.

Former Ole Miss running back Snoop Conner has signed a contract to continue his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys.

 

In the 2019 class, Conner was a three-star recruit who was rated as the nation’s No. 61 running back and the No. 29 player in Mississippi.

While in college, Conner played in all 13 games during the 2021 season, starting one. That year, he tallied 647 rushing yards on 130 carries. He ranked third in the SEC and No. 24 nationally with 13 rushing touchdowns.

His 13 rushing TDs ranked fifth all-time by a Rebel during a single season as he also hauled in 14 catches for 82 yards during the 2021 campaign.


He made the decision to forego his senior season at Ole Miss and enter the NFL Draft.

In the 2022 NFL Draft, Conner was a fifth-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein described Conner as “aggressive” and “rocked up.”
“Rocked up runner with aggressive disposition and relatively low mileage on his tires,” Zierlein noted in Conner’s pre-draft profile. “Conner is a scheme-versatile runner, which could help him as he transitions to the next level. He’s more than willing to choose violence on every snap but rarely allows that mindset to prevent him from seeking out less-trafficked pathways with his vision.

“He will run himself into some tackles because of his red-hot tempo, but ironically, he’s a patient and highly effective short-yardage back. Conner’s disappointing showing at the NFL Scouting Combine is hard to ignore, though, and could hurt his standing with evaluators. Conner has three-down talent and projects as a good committee back with the frame to carry a workload if needed.”

During his rookie year, Conner carried 12 times for 42 yards and one TD but he failed to make the roster in 2023. He re-signed to the practice squad but was not signed to a futures contract in Jacksonville.

He now gets a new start in Dallas.
