Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones really likes his two middle linebackers,  Sean Lee and Bruce Carter.  He made it clear at this years Senior Bowl on the NFL Network,  that his dream is for them to play like Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman of the 49ers. “We all watched Bowman. We watched Willis out there for San Francisco, and boy, did those guys make a difference,” Jones said of the All-Pro inside linebackers. “Those guys and our Sean Lee and Carter, this is my dream: [they’re] not exactly the prototype for the makeup of the two guys you’d want in the middle — you might want more of a thumper, a big guy, to go along with Sean Lee.
