Cheap Devin Smith Jersey

The former sixth round pick out of Boise State had a year off last season due to an injured shoulder. Now he’s healthy and better than ever.
During OTAs last season, Dallas Cowboys receiver Cedrick Wilson was turning heads with his route running ability and pure athleticism. He was looking like a possible candidate to replace former receiver Cole Beasley in the slot.

His start to the NFL didn’t go as planned after injuring his shoulder which forced Wilson on Injured Reserve (IR) for the 2018 season. Now, heading into his second season, he finds himself in a competitive battle with a group of all-new receivers.

Wilson played two years at Boise State and had impressive career numbers he totaled 139 receptions for 2,640 yards and 18 touchdowns in just 26 games. He was a productive slot receiver and has the ability to make big plays down the field with his speed.

The second-year receiver has a lot of competition around him, he has to compete with Undrafted Free Agents Jon’Vea Johnson and Jalen Guyton as well as Devin Smith and Reggie Davis who have also turned heads during the summer.

The key for Wilson is staying on the field if he can remain healthy throughout Training Camp and the Preseason he may have a legitimate chance of making the roster. While the Cowboys have a very deep group of receivers Wilson’s athleticism and pure route running ability mirrors receiver Amari Cooper.

The four locks at receiver look to be Cooper, Michael Gallup, Randall Cobb, and Allen Hurns. If Wilson stays on the field, I believe he finds himself making the 53-man roster. He’s a dynamic receiver with the ball in his hands and could be a genuine playmaker in offensive coordinator Kellen Moore‘s new scheme.

While Wilson is primarily a slot receiver he could find himself on the outside as well due to his superior route running skills. Dallas could run many four wide receiver sets that feature Cooper, Gallup, Cobb, and Wilson and that gives quarterback Dak Prescott and arsenal of weapons on the receiving end.

With OTA’s complete and training camp on the horizon, it is now or never for Cedrick Wilson as he certainly hopes to find himself on the 53-man roster on his way to becoming a playmaker for the Dallas Cowboys.

Cheap Larry Allen Jr. Jersey

Which one of the rookies have impressed you so far? – JAMES JORDAN/CONVERSE, TX

Bryan: Jon’Vea Johnson. It’s easy to see when a wide receiver or a running back has a good day because you do see them finishing plays. At least through these early stages of practice he looks impressive catching the ball and playing on the move with it in his hands.

Rob: It’s so early, and these aren’t padded practices, but it’s obvious Tony Pollard has exceptional burst and quickness through the hole. I’ve seen a lot of outside observers compare him to Lance Dunbar, the former backup running back here, but he’s got a much larger frame than Dunbar or fellow rookie Mike Weber, who was a more traditional running back at Ohio State. Looking forward to seeing Pollard more as the summer progresses.

With almost all the positions filled on the offensive line, as well as backups, how do you see it playing out with Mitch Hyatt, Derrick Puni, Brandon Knight, Larry Allen Jr. and Jake Campos? With the depth it appears they have, there are not enough spots available for all this young talent on the team or practice squad. – JACK FANELLI / BLACKWOOD, NJ

Bryan: They’ve used Jake Campos as a starter at right tackle in place of La’el Collins early in this camp, so I’d say he has a leg up. Mitch Hyatt and Brandon Knight have been running with the second group, and I’d have to say that Knight has been better there at this point. If Larry Allen Jr. and Derrick Puni make the practice squad at the end of camp that would be a major accomplishment.
Rob: Man, Jason Garrett wouldn’t like to hear you claim that all the positions are set. I do see your point, though, and it’s no surprise teams have called the Cowboys about excess depth they’ve got at certain spots. (I’d imagine offensive line is one spot that’s been inquired about.) Practice squad probably looks like a more realistic destination for most rookies besides Connor McGovern, but let’s let it play out. Again, very early.

Cheap Ricky Walker Jersey

The Dallas Cowboys invested heavily in their defensive line this offseason. They spent resources in free agency, through the draft, and even made a trade to bolster the line that was abused in the divisional playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Cowboys’ defensive line currently looks like this:

Demarcus Lawrence (returning player), Tyrone Crawford (returning player), Antwaun Woods (returning player), Maliek Collins (returning player), Taco Charlton (returning player), Daniel Ross (returning player), Dorance Armstrong (returning player), Robert Quinn (acquired via trade with Dolphins), Christian Covington (signed as a free agent), Kerry Hyder (signed as a free agent), Trysten Hill (draft pick), Joe Jackson (draft pick), Jalen Jelks (draft pick), Shakir Soto (undrafted free agent), Ricky Walker (undrafted free agent), Daniel Wise (undrafted free agent).

The Dallas Cowboys will likely carry ten defensive linemen on the 53-man roster and dress eight on gameday with two inactive because that’s what they’ve done in years past. With that in mind, let’s take a look at who’s a lock, who’s on the bubble and who’s not going to make the cut.

The Locks: Lawrence, Crawford, Woods, Collins, Quinn, Hill
Right off the bat, we have six locks to make the 53-man roster. Lawrence just got a long-term contract extension and is a cornerstone of the Dallas defense. He’s one of the league’s premier pass rushers and will be a fixture off the edge for the Cowboys in years to come. Crawford is a long-time Cowboy and has played much better as an interior defensive lineman.

Woods and Collins both had career years in 2018 and will look to replicate them. Quinn was brought to Dallas to give the Cowboys a true compliment to Lawrence on the other side of the line and to replace Randy Gregory. Hill is the Cowboys’ top draft pick this year, and defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli is excited about what he can bring on the interior.

On the bubble: Charlton, Ross, Armstrong, Covington, Hyder, Jackson, Jelks
Charlton is in danger of not making the Dallas roster. Despite being a former first-round pick, he has severely underperformed, and with the increase in competition this year, he will have to earn his spot in camp. Ross performed well in limited appearances with the Cowboys last year but will also have to earn his spot with the new additions to the line.

Armstrong was a late-round draft pick last year that didn’t get much playing time but showed promise when he did. He should make the team, but he lands on the bubble because of the amount of competition. Jackson and Jelks are late-round picks from this year that will likely end up on the practice squad.

On the outs: Soto, Walker, Wise
Soto, Walker, and Wise were brought on as undrafted free agents to the Cowboys. They likely won’t make the cut, but they could end up on the practice squad. However, Wise has shown ability in OTAs, and if anyone is to take a spot from an incumbent, he’s the guy to keep your eye on.

Final Predictions: Lawrence, Crawford, Woods, Collins, Quinn, Hill, Armstrong, Covington, Hyder, Charlton
I went back and forth on the final two spots between Charlton, Hyder, and Ross but I decided Ross was the odd man out based on interior versus exterior numbers. Ross is an interior lineman, but Crawford, Woods, Collins, Hill, and Covington will already be manning those spots with Crawford and Covington also able to go to the edge. Lawrence, Quinn, and Armstrong were the only edge rushers, which is why Taco and Hyder get the nod.

None of this is set in stone. Ross, Jackson, Jelks and even Wise could outperform incumbents in preseason games and take their spots. Also, Armstrong, Hyder or Charlton might have to make way for the suspended Gregory if/when he returns to the Cowboys this season.

Cheap Terrell Owens Jersey

FRISCO, Texas — Quarterback Dak Prescott’s short pass to Amari Cooper was perfect, right between the 1 and 9 on his jersey, but the Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver wasn’t happy with himself since he had to grab it twice.

Cooper wants perfection. All the time. Even in an organized team activity in May.

“Amari can do whatever he sets his mind to. He’s that gifted,” receivers coach Sanjay Lal said. “Not just physically but mentally. With Amari, it’s can he do everything at an elite level? That’s where the mind discipline comes in because he has the talent to be elite in every aspect of his game. He’s such a great athlete, such a really good player, he has to hold himself to a standard of, ‘Hey, I’m elite. I’m going to play and practice that way,’ and I have to hold him to that standard. What is your level of play and can you keep it there for 50, 60, 70 plays?”

Cooper’s transition to the Cowboys after the Oct. 22 trade with the Oakland Raiders could not have gone better. He helped correct a lot of wrongs with a Cowboys offense that struggled to throw for 200 yards a game without him.

After the acquisition, Prescott completed 71.3 percent of his passes and averaged 274 yards per game. Cooper led the Cowboys with 725 yards and six touchdown receptions despite playing in only nine games with Dallas. He was third on the team in receptions with 53. He had touchdowns of 75 and 90 yards.

The Cowboys were 3-4 before Cooper arrived and went 7-2 with him.

All of that happened with him forced to learn the offense on the fly.

Now, he has an offseason to learn the ins and outs of what new coordinator Kellen Moore wants and Prescott likes.

“It’s obviously a very good thing to get a full offseason with your quarterback, the guy who’s going to be throwing you the ball on many different types or routes,” Prescott said. “So we just need that chemistry to get better and better.”

The Cowboys moved Cooper around the formation some after the trade.

Including his time with the Raiders last season, Cooper ran 428 routes, with 252 coming wide to the right, 176 wide to the left, 58 in the left slot, 57 in the right slot and five lined up tight to the left tackle, according to Next Gen Stats. During the organized team activities and minicamp, Cooper has mostly worked outside, but he has lined up in either slot and has gone in motion more.

“For him, it’s seeing the whole picture now,” Moore said. “Him being here for an offseason, you’re able to move him around a little bit more, put him in some different spots, some formations, motions, all that sort of stuff. That stuff will help us help him and create opportunities for him.”

The versatility of the receiving corps will help, too. As much as the Cowboys talked about using Cole Beasley outside and expanding his route tree, he mostly lined up in the slot. According to Next Gen Stats, 90 percent of his 673 snaps came from the slot in 2018. He lined up wide just 68 times.

Randall Cobb lined up in the slot 86 percent of the time last season with the Green Bay Packers, but he played in only nine games because of injury. In 2015 through 2017, he lined up in the slot roughly 76 percent of the snaps. If Cobb can stay healthy and show he can win outside, then that can open up more of the field for Cooper.

“He can run our dodge route, which is an option route, as good as anyone,” Lal said of Cooper. “And he can run a 9 route (a go route) as good as anyone. So he has the ability to be equally good inside or outside.”

The Cowboys have not had a No. 1 receiver as adaptable as Cooper in quite some time. Dez Bryant was mostly an outside receiver in becoming the franchise’s all-time leader in touchdown catches from 2010 to 2017. Terrell Owens’ best work from 2006 to 2008 came outside as well. Miles Austin’s two-year run as a Pro Bowler saw him succeed inside and out, but not to the extent the Cooper can.

“He’s got a really high football IQ,” coach Jason Garrett said. “I think he’s a smart person. He’s certainly a very smart football player, and I think he and Dak developed a connection. Just the way they communicated with each other and how they got themselves on the same page, it was really positive. But again, the more time on task you have, I think the better opportunity you have to do that even at a high level.”

Cooper enjoys a challenge. In January, he put on Instagram a video of him solving a Rubik’s Cube in less than three minutes. This offseason, he has had ongoing chess matches with cornerback Chidobe Awuzie.

In between, he has worked on the nuances of running specific routes, detailing to Garrett an issue he had with a particular angle on a route because he could not get his footwork down properly.

“He wants to be great at it,” Garrett said. “He’s very willing to work at it, do extra, try to understand what we’re asking him to do to execute at a higher level. Certainly a pleasure to coach — we love having him here.”

No one more than Prescott, who noted a conversation the pair had after an OTA in which they failed to connect a few times. They worked together to correct the issues.

“We know it’s going to pay us well coming into the season,” Prescott said. “It’s been great. He’s a smart guy that wants to learn, be on the same page. When you have that, it makes it fun.”

Cheap Larry Allen Jersey

I think the last cornerback spot will come down to Chris Westry, Mike Jackson and Donovan Olumba. Can you talk about what you’ve seen from these guys in OTAs? – TYLER BAEM / SAN ANTONIO, TX

Bryan: I was very high on Olumba, but I am starting to have concerns that he’s a player that will always be a tick late making plays. Westry might get a look at safety which could make him valuable. Jackson is already playing some in the slot so they clearly have plans for him.

Rob: Olumba might have an edge right now because he’s had time on the practice squad. But my ears perked up when DBs coach/passing game coordinator Kris Richard said Jackson can play corner and the nickel. Versatility is key in a position battle. It’s kind of fascinating watching Westry play back there because he’s so much taller than everyone. The Cowboys believe he’s athletic enough to do it, so it’ll be about refining technique at this point.

How did Larry Allen Jr. do in OTAs? – TONY GREULICH / SEBRING, FL

Bryan: One of my favorite auto racing tracks in the world is in Sebring. Allen is already winning in life: Harvard grad and a future doing great in the world at whatever he decides. If he were to make the practice squad it would be a major accomplishment.
Rob: Allen has been getting third-team reps at guard. The Cowboys have improved their interior line depth, which makes it a pretty crowded group, even with third-round pick Connor McGovern sitting out this week’s open OTA with a pectoral strain. But Allen Jr. battles, no question about that.

Cheap Tony Dorsett Jersey

Now there’s a push for the franchise’s founder to join him.

A group called “Friends of Clint Murchison Jr.” sent materials to the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this week to lobby for his inclusion. The presentation includes two videos that detail Murchison’s accomplishments during his ownership of the Cowboys and a letter of nomination.

Six members of the Hall of Fame are among the 20 signatures on the letter. They are Roger Staubach, Bob Lilly, Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Mel Renfro and Rayfield Wright. Other star Cowboys players, executives and friends fill out the list.

Murchison landed the expansion franchise, which began play in 1960. He presided over an era that yielded five Super Bowl appearances, two championships and 20 consecutive winning seasons.

Unlike Jones, who was enshrined in the Hall of Fame two years ago, Murchison preferred to stay in the background and allow the triumvirate of Tom Landry, Tex Schramm and Gil Brandt to run the franchise. This is why the group has chosen to emphasize the owner’s insight and leadership in the construction of Texas Stadium.

The group casts Murchison as the father of the modern NFL stadium, citing the iconic design that protected the fans yet let the elements impact the game with the famous hole in the roof. Murchison was the first to introduce seat options — now known as Personal Seat Licenses — that remain the basis for how most stadiums are financed today.
Texas Stadium was also the first venue to incorporate luxury suites on a grand scale. The initial number of 178 ballooned to 400 near the end of the stadium’s life.

These are a few of the reasons that Stephen Jones, the Cowboys executive vice president and a key figure in the club’s development of AT&T Stadium, calls Murchison a visionary in one of the videos sent to the Hall of Fame.

Murchison moved the team from the Cotton Bowl to Texas Stadium in 1971 and owned the franchise until 1984. He passed away three years later at the age of 63.

Cheap Custom Jersey

The Cowboys acknowledged safety was their shallowest roster position entering the 2019 draft.

Then the team passed on the top safeties available in Round 2, waiting until the sixth round to select Texas A&M’s Donovan Wilson 213th overall.

Teams took notice.

“We’ve been getting a few calls,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told reporters Wednesday at an annual golf outing for team sponsors. “People needing things and knowing that we might need, thinking that we might need a safety, would we be willing to trade this player for that player.

“I think this is going to pay for us. We’re not in any hurry.”

The Cowboys’ patient approach stems in part from belief that their scheme can work without a top-tier safety. Bolster the defensive line, front-office members say, and the rush will make coverage easier for defensive backs. The Cowboys went to work on their front four this offseason with an extension for Pro Bowler DeMarcus Lawrence, a trade for Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn and the second-round selection of Central Florida defensive tackle Trysten Hill, Dallas’ highest pick after the team’s midseason deal to acquire Amari Cooper for a first-rounder.

In contrast, the safety depth chart features undrafted free agent Jeff Heath; sixth-round selections Xavier Woods and Kavon Frazier; and George Iloka, whom Dallas signed in free agency for one year, $1 million.

The Cowboys hired former Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard in 2018.

Jones said an upgrade for Richard’s unit may be difficult to find.
“Not just anybody fits with what we are trying as an organization to get accomplished at that position,” he said. “It has to be a safety that works for us.”

In the interim, the Cowboys drafted two running backs, two defensive ends and third-round guard Connor McGovern. The Cowboys hadn’t lost an offensive-line starter – in fact, they expect all-pro center Travis Frederick to return after an autoimmune disorder sidelined him in 2018 – but said they’d continue fortifying their strengths. Consider the offensive line a roster asset rather than imbalance, Jones said.

“We have [received calls about] different positions, which I think says a lot,” Jones said. “I love Jerry’s famous line, you keep strong at a position by drafting into a position of strength. That’s what we did with McGovern. I think we’ve got some depth there in the offensive line, not to mention many other positions.

“So I think that’ll pay off for us.”

Cheap Trysten Hill Jersey

Now that you’ve had time to digest what the Cowboys did and didn’t do in the draft, now that grades have been assigned and roster spots projected, what’s left to be said?

Plenty.

Players report for rookie minicamp later this week. Until then, until coaches get a better feel for the class of 2019 and the promise it holds, a few observations from the last 10 days warrant discussion.

In the interest of brevity, let’s restrict this to the draft and push the players’ latest side trip to Durham, N.C. to soak in the wisdom of Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and others to another day.

A tepid acceptance of the Cowboys’ decision to select Trysten Hill in the second round rests on two factors: He’s not a safety, and friction with the coaching staff at UCF led to him starting only one game in his final season.

Let’s table the safety debate. You may disagree, but Dallas officials are not only clear but unified in their positional preference for a three-technique defensive tackle over a strong safety. The attitude issue is more interesting.

A player talented enough to be taken in the second round of the NFL draft shouldn’t start the game on the sidelines for UCF. The Cowboys acknowledged the red flag, did their due diligence and said they’re comfortable. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli went as far as to say that he and Hill have clicked.
The Cowboys didn’t ignore the input they got from Josh Heupel’s staff. But it’s fair to say the organization put more weight in what Scott Frost had to say.

Frost, now the head coach at Nebraska, was UCF’s head coach for Hill’s first two seasons. Hill started all 26 games he played under Frost, who had good things to say about the defensive tackle.

Was this a case of the Cowboys only wanting to hear the good about a player at a position they value? No.
Frost spent six years in the NFL as a safety before becoming a coach. His last stop was Tampa Bay in 2003. The assistant head coach on that team who oversaw the defense was Marinelli.

Frost knows how Marinelli operates and what he demands from players. He knows what makes Hill tick. If Frost was unsure that the two could co-exist, do you think the Cowboys would have used a second-round pick on Hill?

Hill is one of three defensive linemen the Cowboys selected in the draft. Hill weighs 315 pounds. Daniel Wise, a defensive tackle from Kansas, is one of seven undrafted rookie free agents signed who had a spot on the Dallas draft board.
Why so many linemen? No one talks about it much, but the Cowboys’ defensive line was worn down and exposed late last season. The exclamation point was the playoff loss to Los Angeles, when the Rams rushed for 273 yards.

A Dallas defense that allowed only one 100-yard rusher in the first 13 games allowed four in its last five games. Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson both went over 100 yards for the Rams in that playoff loss.

A defense that had 33 sacks in the first 12 games finished the regular season with only six in the final four games. The Cowboys scraped together only one sack in two postseason games. That came from Maliek Collins.

That’s why the Cowboys continue to address the defensive line.

Third-round pick Connor McGovern was rated higher on the Cowboys draft board than Hill. The club didn’t target him — which explains why only scouts spent any time with him leading up to the selection — but he was too good to pass up at No. 90.

“You keep drafting into strengths and you know what your strength is on a football team,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said. “You don’t want a strength to become something that’s average quickly.”

Makes sense. Still, the Cowboys went with McGovern because the safety or cornerback they hoped to land was gone.

Boston College safety Will Harris went to Detroit at No. 81. Michigan State cornerback Justin Layne went to Pittsburgh two picks later. The loss of those two is why McGovern was a blinking light, in the words of Cowboys officials, when Dallas was on the clock.

The Cowboys traded back near the end of the fourth round and again early in the fifth because the player they wanted went off the board immediately in front of them.

Atlanta jumped ahead of Dallas at No. 135 to take defensive end Johnathan Cominsky. The Cowboys were primed to take Arkansas linebacker Dre Greenlaw 13 picks later in the fifth but San Francisco beat them to the punch.

There was speculation the Cowboys would come out of this draft with a tight end, but the possibility of that evaporated with Jason Witten’s return.

Dallas isn’t short-sighted. If the Cowboys could have gotten one of the top tight ends in this draft, one to take over for Witten going forward, they would have done it. But the board didn’t break that way.

Witten won’t consume as many snaps as he did during his first tour of duty, but he’ll likely get the majority. Blake Jarwin came on strong at the end of last season, and the club doesn’t want to impede his progress. Dalton Schultz showed enough late to lead the Cowboys to believe he could be part of a rotation going forward.

Throwing a rookie into this mix wouldn’t have provided much return on investment and may have forced a decision on Schultz earlier than the club desired. Look for a tight end to be taken next year, even if Witten decides to return.

It’s fair to say the Cowboys are intrigued with unrestricted free agent Mitch Hyatt. Dallas lured the Clemson offensive tackle to The Star with a $20,000 signing bonus and by guaranteeing $130,000 of his base salary.

There are players around the NFL taken in the final two rounds of this draft who won’t receive that level of financial commitment.
