Dallas Cowboys Complete Rookie Minicamp


The Dallas Cowboys completed the 3-day, 4-practice minicamp for drafted and undrafted invitees this weekend.

Dallas was able to get a good look at the next generation of talent that will shape the way Cowboys fans think of the future.

Oklahoma State running back Jospeh Randle didn’t participate fully in the minicamp because of his recovery from thumb surgery this offseason.

Randle should be a capable backup candidate to DeMarco Murray. He scored 38 touchdowns over the past two seasons at OSU.

All eyes are on first-round pick Travis Frederick. The Wisconsin center was selected in the first round when most scouts had Frederick in the late second to early third.

Frederick looked quick in the trenches. He will be able to use a lot of the same technique that he did for the Badgers. Offensive coach Bill Callahan uses the same zone-blocking theme that Wisconsin used.

Former Baylor wideout Terrence Williams struggled last weekend with drops. He stayed after the second practice to catch extra passes in order to strengthen and develop his hands.

The issue is not a huge concern for Cowboy fans as Williams shows the ability to be a playmaker.

Williams did make a great catch on a deep ball thrown by former Tarleton State QB Nick Stephens.
