The Ocho: Cowboys Draft Neville Gallimore at 82 Overall

"What a world. Welcome to another episode of the Ocho presented you in partnership as always nations blogging. The BOYS DOT COM. My name arduous. Cha You know me of course from BTV INFORMATICA as you're humble host on the show. Welcome back to our continued coverage of the two thousand twenty NFL draft. We are here to discuss the Dallas cowboys. Third Round selection with the eighty second overall. Pick America's team took Oklahoma Defensive Tackle Neville Gallimore and we brought in a very special friend to get into it and so I don't want to waste any time. Let's talk some Gallimore with the one. And only bobby right here on the OJ. Pleased to be joined now by the internationally famous. You know him he definitely knows details about your life that you may not even know yourself the one only NFL network producer. Bobby Belt Robert. How does your draft experience? It is great. It's been a pretty awesome couple of days. I think we you and I already talked about this. A little bit but I think the country needed this. This is a nice little Escape kind of normal sports relations. And it's been it's been awesome. Yeah I really enjoyed Friday like the whole day. Just like the proverbial water cooler. You know what I mean like. That was crazy. You know like the water cooler. This did again and then we got the draft again at night and then like Monday. We're GONNA have all reaction from the dry. It's going to be good like I as much as the. Nfl got killed early on for the decision. They're going to go forward the draft. I think everybody realizes that was a good call. Well so we've already recapped. The cowboys draft picks in the first and second round of the twenty twenty. Nfl draft discussed CD lamb. We've discussed the younger digs. And we are now here. Robert to discuss the eighty second overall selection in the draft house cowboys taking Oklahoma Defensive Tackle Naval Gallimore. Your thoughts I like Gallimore and I think he was good value whereas probably would have been happy with him as a selection on the first or second round. Obviously since you know he was hanging around on third but I think he has good value in the third round and there was talk. Lena the last couple of days of the drafty Savi White Daniel Jeremiah. And Tom Zero talking about that. You know there was buzz that maybe gallimore could sneak into the back end of the first or early second round and so teams did like him and so I think the Dallas did get good value there and they certainly are desperate. I think for help along. Interior defensive line with me collins leaving Christian Covington kind of his status unknown and Tristen Hill Beam Tristan Hill They definitely need help. They're on the interior. Yeah I feel like you UH Out One third round defensive tackle in me and bringing another one similar color schemes collegiately. Obviously not the exact same I. I guess this isn't necessarily about Neville specifically but you mentioned Tristen Hill. I just find it and I mean. I don't think you live with a mistake just so that you don't admit failure but it is kind of crazy that it was this night a year ago that the cowboys drafted Tristan Hill. And here we are and they signed. Two defensive tackles in agency and spent their third round. Pick on one. I don't know that there's a louder siren that they could Blair that screams. That was a big mistake. Well and I think it's the biggest advocate in the building for him. The Guy who really wanted him to be here any more And so and that's obviously Rod Marinelli and so and even still at the time they talk about well. This wasn't just Rod. We make because Crystal Shard was onboard. Jew Okay Well Christie Shards gone now too. So there's really nobody that was really pounding the table for him and I think they are kind of shield with a little bit of regret on that pick and I. I think that we're rapidly. Seen things play out for him in a similar fashion to how they play Taco Charleston And I don't think the Tristan Hill is long the Dallas cowboys. So you are an expert on a lot of things but the NFL draft was Kinda like But the draft is sort of your your main wheelhouse I would say is your friend and close confidant So impressed me then impress me give something about Neville Gallon more. That only bobby would know. Because you're you're that guy that knows that type of stuff I I feel like I I'm GonNa say thank you for the Slow pitch under know hands off all that you're talking to me 'cause you already now. I've got the greatest nugget on Neville Gallimore rent. So Yeah He. He's been training next door to the Star at these sports performance center At Baylor Scott and white the star which is the same area that you see all these videos have guys working out usually does is coming onto the field as Neville gala warrenton draft prospects. Were leaving in fact when I started working out there gallimore which I think I reference to you. How prospects stopping down kind of shooting video gallimore was one of those is like Oh my. Gosh. That's Brian and so But he's been working out with Pete Jenkins and they longtime legendary defensive line coach at the college level spent. I think like two years with the Eagles in two thousand eleven thousand twelve But his main claim to fame is in the defensive line coach for a number of years through a couple different stops at Lsu and this is the doubly fun note that a lot of people don't realize p Jenkins is the man who in the nineteen eighties recruited one. Brian brought us to Louisiana University. And so we've gotTA BRIAN BROUGHT US naval gala more connection VIP Jenkins. Wow okay. Well I not only knew that you knew that but you know still fascinated. I mean having heard it for the second time so that is really cool. I won't tell you I will tell you even found that out. Though was I was on the phone with Brian asking him if he wanted to come. Check out these guys working out and I said and he said I can't make today instead I I p Jenkins and he stopped and he said p Jenkins bid the old defensive line coach and I said Yeah and he said he recruited me Alessi's like I didn't even know he was living in Dallas now. So Brian had no idea teaching because even in Dallas forget and was really excited to find out that he was was helping to connect with them again by actually out via Bryant but it was through chance. Good Times. I'm GONNA hard pivot for a second. We're talking we jumped onto record literally right after. Gama was taken by the cowboys. Just now Bobby. New England Patriots traded and drafted. Ucla TIGHT END Devin Siasi. That hurts the cowboys. Yeah so I mean you've been on that hunt for a while. I just wanted to get that out there. A lot of people talking like oh where is the GRONK REPLACEMENT GONNA come? I mean you know they could start to go down that path but okay so back the gala he's listed over three hundred pounds but as I understand. He is quite athletic. And maybe it doesn't move like he's over three hundred true And I also think that if you were to go look up some of his testing numbers from the combine. They're not impressive But I think that's more about there was a lot of poor testing numbers at the combine this year because public changed it up guys. We're working out at night. And they were physically fatigued and mentally fatigued from everything that have been going on throughout the day. So I don't hold those numbers too much against him and also he does move better than his. I think Testing Times. He better field athlete than you know and Underwear Olympian. But he is a he's a big man. You're GONNA notice them. I would bet he's the biggest guy on the defensive line. Now and he'll he'll move nimbly he moves better than Taco Charleston and so You know what it's actually interesting. I feel like they're not the same player. Because I feel like Gallimore can be more of a one technique and more of a run steph or if necessary but he he's he's big and moves really well for a size in the same way. That Tristan held us. But I think that he didn't do the better player interest until well it. Is You know it has been? I should say a really interesting first. Three rounds of the draft for a Mike McCarthy in his first season with the cowboys give me your thoughts on digs just You know briefly because I know that you guys are Brian. I'm thrilled because that was as a player that I know they were considering a fallback or trade back option at seventeen so they got right away right away. Everybody's everybody's super hyped about what you said. Yeah after they've got guys that's two guys that they considered top twenty picks that they were able to get you know at seventeen and fifty one and and obviously guy in lamb that they considered as the sixth best overall player that they got at seventeen and then the guy that considered around the seventeenth. Best player that they're able to get a fifty one so Great value they're really raw player But I mean has all the tools and this little box. I don't know that he's GonNa step in next year and be a starter right. I think he is probably going to have to require some seasoning. A little bit But the ceiling is a very very high for him because the tools are all there and he's only been playing defensive back for like three years He's a big Fan of Dallas. Cowboys always wanted to be here was hoping and praying. This is where he'd end up. And of course as you know the younger brother of Stefan Digs and Yeah and I felt bloodlines. The perfect skill set that you want and tools that you wanted the cornerback position and a guy who's really eager to learn more and become a better player. I don't remember it fully out the top of my head but I know that you do. I think I do but I'll let you take it. What was the obscure stat about Alabama players about? What the cowboys and the steelers? Drafting them. All Man I don't remember it. Well maybe I can remember it was. It was something like since a certain year and it was a long time ago the cowboys in St Louis Teams. That hadn't drafted player. Smell Obama an cowboys drunk scarborough. They drafted both scarborough and they ended that. I can't remember it must have been O. One zero two yeah. I kind of draft Tony Dixon. Now's the last Alabama player. They took him in the second round. The safety and so Yeah it was the Pittsburgh in Dallas and on a very long stretch when drafting the Alabama plays in Dallas. Actually got a long stretch of really having any Alabama players on their roster. I think he may be missing remembering this but I'm pretty sure that before. They drafted scarborough. Who didn't even make it to the fifty three the last player on the roster from Alabama I think was London Mcclain so on the digs episode. Here and so it. It's kind of funny. Because as long as they had Jason Garrett there and he's a Nick Sabin disciple they. They never really were able to make it work. That's again exactly what I said. I think it's obvious to people that were good friends. So there you go but okay last thing for you you know beyond just never gallimore your thoughts three rounds in on what the cowboys have done with. Lamb digs and now gallimore. I think that They could draft the belt. Show You Know Charles and Hellman tomorrow and get an a plus for the draft. Just from the first three rounds. I think the cowboys have absolutely crested. There there's really no way that I can move off in a for them no matter what they do and you know day three of them are they got great value everywhere and especially those first pixels are home runs big valued talking. You know ten fifteen spots later than they should have been taken type of value and so that the cowboys would think did a great job of of not just making value with their picks but but getting really really good players at spots that they really really need You know I think receiver Corner and defensive line or three but they had coming into this and they're able to great value at all those spots and and so I do think it was one of the better draft out a long time and I don't WanNa be too damning but you just gotTa wonder how much it's reflective of the fact that you don't have tracing geared or Marinelli or other people in their pound on the table trying to overrule Scout. Well see that was. I know I said that that was my last question and I now have actual question and it was going to be. What do you attribute that to? And you didn't really answer that and I don't know if that's your answer I know you. You wouldn't throw shade locked up. I WANNA BE. I WANNA be fair because they yeah. There were coated the pound of the table for Tristen Hill and Taco Charlton. But Jason Garrett also the table for Dak Prescott. Wade Wilson did too and that was a fight with the scouting department. So I do. I don't WanNa say completely that you know the the cow. The coaching staff was always wrong when they won out But I do think it's best just to let the the scouting staff do their job and sure Mike. Mccarthy may have input Murky have certain things that he likes. But I think Mike McCarthy is more just giving the scouting department and the personnel department and and idea of the type of football players. He wants to then he's trusting them to go out and find that then. So I I do think it's Mike McCarthy's parameters but it's up to the personnel department and the scouting staff to interpret which players at those parameters best and Mike McCarthy's traumatic. Yeah I think to piggyback off of that just briefly I think it all has the makings of being. You know heavily influenced by somebody that has had over a year to prepare for. You know what I mean. I it's. It's that organizing that disciplined. And so that's that's pretty cool to see okay. So Bobby's on twitter at Bobby about. Ti Has the most insane nuggets that you will ever hear in your life as evidenced by his appearance here today is also the Co host of the boys integral podcast with Jane Slater. They had interviewed for that. I was setting you up. But that's fine a content specific teas go ahead That we're working on some things. We hope to have some really substantial names on the next one.

Talkin' The Draft: Neville Gallimore & Reggie Robinson II

"What's up guys. We are back on the talk and the draft podcast yes. The draft is over but we are not done talking the two thousand twenty. Nfl draft and the Dallas Cowboys. And that's what we're going to be doing today. Is We have to Dallas cowboys players on the PODCASTS. To Talk to the talk in the draft podcast and give their stories. We'RE GONNA be talking to third round. Pick Neville Gallimore. The Oklahoma defense alignment. He was the eighty second overall in the two thousand twenty. Nfl draft and later in the episode. We're going to be joined by. Reggie Robinson Tulsa quarterback the cowboys Fourth Round Pick and. We are very excited to have both of those guys on the show. Let's dive into our first interview with Neville Gallimore. Here he is Neville. How's it going man? How are you GonNa Whoa Owe? We're doing great I know. Rj's doing good. He's posted up. I know you got you got a lot of things going on. So we're going to dive right in how this last few months been for. You know it's been a crazy crazy last few months with a corona virus kind of taken over the world. But how have you handled these last few months leading up to the draft? I mean I feel like this. Probably the any a guy who has an opportunity you know the protests to get a picked up and that's thought team those those three four months starting January obviously like the most hectic Komo stress. You got a lot a lot of stuff going just in terms of you know the media meetings and then still trying to focus on the main thing which is you know playing football and you know. Make sure you're in the best eight. You know the most appealing to these coaches. I mean I it definitely had it ups obviously but also down as well. But that's just part of it. Yeah you started off you know you went to the senior bowl. You went to the combine and nothing was really changed from that point. Everything was Kinda still the same as it always has been right after the combine. It kinda changed everything. Kinda started breaking down at that point. What was the contact level that you had with the cowboys throughout this all season? And then maybe how did it change? After things started you know slowing down as the world started to change a little bit. I mean we definitely wear wearing contacts. I feel like a The cowboys are actually more contact with you. Know my my coach coach again and it was just funny things work. I always say love to you know to to live you know in the Dallas Frisco area been released preaching the heavily since last summer when I came to Frisco because my cousin out here and then you just fast forwarding to be able to train our here the last three or four months and then you know to get that opportunity so everything worked out. There was like the stars aligned. Well that's an awesome job there Obviously you know your. You're thrilled with what happened and whatnot. And you said that your coaches and everybody were kind of the people having conversations. Was there anybody that you did talk to whether it's guys from Oklahoma that were in the NFL Gerald McCoy. I know but we were there veterans in the NFL that you just you hit up and said what's the process like just because there was so much ambiguity going into this year specifically the gripping go coming from a school like Oklahoma though there's been like you know every year there's always a guy to get them to play the next level so you know speaking to guys like you know overall Conclo- you know you talked guy right join levies. Those guys Orlando Brown Bobby. Ever cody forward. You know juicy me Ben Powers all the guys I came up to we. We came together. Or you know I got the play. Staubach sought to see those guys Excel you have no choice but to ask if you have aspirations and you know everybody had their own own story on on aspect of it but it was just. They're all pretty similar. You know this is just as long as you have the right man behind say you know and you game of football you know just Larry thing to take care of yourself. Obviously their standards of business but they just Kinda let it be no you if you make when you make it that far because you let a game yeah you. You've mentioned a lot of guys who've been drafted out Oklahoma. And it's it's kind of funny because no matter where these guys get drafted. They always seem to pan out and I'm sure that that's a credit to the coaching staff and developmental traits the sooners. Have as a football program. What are you kind of credit the success of the Oklahoma football program putting guys into the pros? Wh What do you look at and go man that? That's the reason that we're so successful as a program getting guys to the League and then having them success in the NFL. Just because I feel like it Pepsi's not only on the field but life. After I knew very fairly very quickly you know for the moment. That's campus that it was gonna be a the transit the transition you know it was going to take a lot of me not from a mental standpoint and I love Oklahoma because it just goes it just shows you know if you trust the process and you're willing to buy cheat you know the process and you can see results the thing about Oklahoma just the environment the connection just the the traditional put guys in a position to be successful but it also It gives you are shows you that you know you gotta earn it yourself but when you do you know the rest kind of tastes careless. So we'll chat to the sooners. I went to Texas am Nevoso. I hate those people in Austin. Just like you do Ah who have you talked to on the cowboys? So far I mean we saw around Crawford reached out to you. I know you guys have Your fellow countrymen Who who all has has reached out to you this point in time you know. Coach coach McCarthy Mo beyond Sis Learn Code. Really you know Player Development. Really just a no. Like the core the core guy for for obviously. It's been a little difficult Just because it was going on but those are the guys that have been in contact with you know Jerem clause obviously as you know as these you know hopefully start to know slow down or just in terms of the code railway. Actually you know meet and do stuff from being more contact with the guys yet. I'm curious because when you came into Oklahoma you you were a little bit bigger than you are right now You drop some weight over the last few years to kind of play a little bit different role on the defense We're still trying to figure out is media members how this cowboy defense is. GonNa look where you know. It's a new defensive coordinator and Mike Nolan. Leon Lett still. There's a defensive line coach but it's a lot of moving parts. What did they see you as being in that defense? More or a under tackled three technique. A guy that can play. Some of that knows cocky as well with the talks with the cowboys. What do they see you as in this upcoming defense? I mean I. It's still up in the air right because he never really had an opportunity where you dig too. Deep into I've been able to do is just really trying to make sure I'm in the best shape physically And just going on from that standpoint So again I'm just taking it day by day. Hopefully you know wants to get into more information. Start through the dealer of you know are really found out. What exactly Expectation or what they want from me but as right now it's still up in there. Where do you see yourself having the biggest impact in this defense like where do you fit in best with your play style body type things of that nature interior into you know whether it'd be three ticker Offi lack and be successful? Just you know what they want me to do how they want me to do you know and and it goes from there and then just working on those things the technique everything and just make sure. I'm locked in from that standpoint so Neville you're coming from a program with a Lotta history. You mentioned Canada the bloodlines of the NFL. You're joining a team. That has a very rich history and the Dallas cowboys. We have a show on our podcast network. it's called the seven five. Oh with Tony Casillas. Who former cowboys defensive tackle former Oklahoma sooner wore number? Seventy five with the cowboys. You've been issue number seventy five. Do you have any familiarity with Tony Casillas weather from? Oh you from from the cowboys I mean or are you just you know. Maybe you You know you got whatever else going on. Yeah you know again. I'm still trying to eliminate the the you know the whole lot of stigma. Just being a Canadian. You know I've been. I've been blessed with Tony. Consider He. He's got me you know I'm doing my best. Just do all the research are. Can you know just even Mr Haley restarting and is great? Because you know I had an understanding of the current environment or tradition. I'm walking into but you know every day is is more information that needs to be to understand again. Just how big of a deal it is. I know it's only been about a week since you've been drafted. Have you gotten dose of how? Insane cowboys nation is as a fan base yet. Definitely got like a little touch. I'll you know I'll pre our committed Dallas and it's a great feeling great but again I I can't get caught up in the moment because one. I haven't really done anything you know. I do what I'm supposed to do and take the next step you know I understand is gonNA come with it but definitely has been a lot of support comes throughout this whole process. That did you see any connection. Obviously you guys coming from Oklahoma together. experiencing cowboys fans in their ravin nature. Did you guys talk and discuss the fan base or or anything? Any part of the journey that you're taking together really spoken to ten is for the both of us but I mean you know we. We always spoke. Respo- caught a few lodges in the Locker Locker Room together. But I understand like you know as crazy for me. I know it's like ten times. No just being in the position that easy but I- I anticipate that we're going to chop it up even more and you know but as of right now you know we understand. We're both positive. Even Dan with this other stuff happened is definitely a kind of made a little bit more complicated. We talked a little bit about your position fit and kind of where you see yourself fitting and potentially where the cowboys coaches staff sees you fitting talk a little bit about the guys who maybe didn't sit down and watch a lot of your film. You know we tried to do our our job over at blogging. Two Boys Breaking that down for folks but for people who haven't seen you play. What are they going to get into Ville Gallimore then again higher for God guy can rush the past six Gaza playmaker? They're going to see a guy who's hungry and you know somebody that's going to be out to go and get it again. You know the guy that's project after being a Jack of all trades and be able to be effective in the run game just like the Compassionate but a High Energy Guy Guy who doesn't really gin is not looking for the limelight. You know just looking do the dirty work at Platfo Buckeye. Let's game that's pretty much. You mentioned being a jack-of-all-trades. I heard a rumor that you do some incredible voice. Impersonations is true And that's that's what. I heard that you can do some great voice over work that you could be like Pixar character narrator like that. You can have Caribbean News.

Canada went to High School in Canada. With how did you end up in the United States? How'd you end up at Oklahoma because Canadian football I? It's a tough sport and Canadia Canada. Excuse me and you know. There's a lot of guys in the NFL that come out of Canada but going to a big school like Oklahoma and then getting drafted at pick that you did. That's a rare feat for someone who doesn't grow up in Texas or Florida Georgia areas. Kind of just talk about your your childhood.

Tulsa cornerback cowboys fourth round. Pick Reggie man how you doing today. Good how about you. We are doing great. We Got Myself Dalton Miller on the call today he wasn't on her first podcast but he's back with us today. So we are excited to talk to Reggie Robinson the cowboys fourth-round corner out of Tulsa Reggio wanted to start off. Take us through draft day Thursday. Friday Saturday you were the first pick of the cowboys had on Saturday. That fourth round pick take us through that that day for you know ahead of been a roller coaster of emotions kind of just sitting by the phone who you were with what your plans were for that day. Just take us through the day you got that call in which you had Planned for that day for draft like people were asking me. What all these things do. I just thought it was gonNA be something small. Really just me my immediate family. My Mom Dad and my sister so the first day I watched her drive. Just 'cause I it was like one of those things I san see. Who's doing in the first round and by parents like we were watching that like together in the second day. I wouldn't plan on watching it. My agent told me this about the phone bill in caves so I watched that nothing happening. Right whatever I got anxious from that so the third day like when address started like I was watching it until like like a couple of picks in dollars can't do some stress myself out by turning the TV. Like I watch regular TV. I'm just in couch out my phone right there and the next thing. I know my phone starts ringing and a lady who Ends UP GETTING JERRY. And then that's how it happened about. I look I do because they were watching it and I just didn't want us to keep stress myself out about who's GonNa pick me. I even get picked this around so I'm curious from an outside perspective. A play like yourself. You know. You're I mean I say you know you're pretty positive you're going to be drafted. You're pretty positive. You'RE GONNA be drafted into those four rounds. What do you do you watch the first two days of the draft you know like what are your feelings on those first days of the draft when you're like you expect your name to get called but it didn't happen until early day three. Just take us through kind of like the feelings that are you know obviously you. Maybe you don't see yourself as a first round player. I'm sure you do. But the way the draft works out. Just take us through how your ups and downs of those emotions when I know you said You. Kind of headed flipped the channel over But when you get that phone call it had to then you kind of forget about all those lows you remember. All the highs at that point right All right so What that I knew. I wasn't the first round and a even a second day. I'll I'll like minimal chatter of late third round. I wasn't like like my mindset going into the draft week with day. Three is going to be my day like today. I really like focus on my near me but That the beginning of day to like my like I said my agent. He told me like that I might sneak in late. Third round so like but that's my whole mindset like Oh man the chance but I probably got the anxious but then when they call it all kind of bummed out but I was like already knew going into like this whole draft week out day. Three guys like all the scouts and NFL. He was telling me that they had four firm grade on me. So that like like I kind of like set myself up for day two but like he was really just like I knew they were GonNa go and then like after good my name call that early too. I was like man finally over here. I finally got. We've talked to some guys that are That they go after three are you. Dfa They get phone calls. You know all the way through day three kind of saying. Hey you might go here. We might take you. Were getting calls or or do you get calls from teams that are saying like. Hey we're we're thinking about taking your here around three if the board falls this way or is it just more communication with your agent up until the time to drafted. I see so I'm to win After I did get drafted on day to take my hugh takes me like you like now all that stuff so when it came to date three I got the phone call from the cowboys and he text me like Apple Phone News. I actually called me after I got phone. Then we do. I knew there on the pick you up ten minutes before the call. I WANNA get your hopes up like begging me when like the day before her before so he had called but like for most part. I didn't have any other call about that. He was like really handling all that happy. That's so funny here you talk about you know. I see myself as a day. Three guy you know. I I knew I probably will go on day. One or two. That doesn't really resemble your take because you play so confident and so aggressive on that it's kind of it's kind of it's cool to hear you say that. I kind saw myself as that day. Three guy where I think even myself and kind of had you pegged in that third round we probably had created a little bit higher than maybe even you did so. That's that's kind of cool to hear you're inside perspective on it but I wanted to talk a little bit about your interactions with the cowboys leading up to the draft. It was actually something a lot of guys like me who cover the team. We were very curious of. Are The cowboys interested in? Reggie Robinson because he fits their size profile. He's you know he's such a good athlete like they need corners. He fits everything that they're kind of looking for. But we didn't hear a lot of the interactions between you and the cowboys wear werther much discussions between you and your representatives and the cowboys leading up to the draft. Actually about that Like two thousand dollars at Tulsa. Like my position coach. I guess he'd been like close with the cowboys and like he He said they showed interest in me. Like even like my. I my sophomore gene here. Well so like when he came to the off season like I probably heard from like one time. They'll just like those things were like. They just happened like the end up in like being around me I heard from them. Maybe like once through this whole awesome process and like my Always told me like you haven't had never really highly. He's always talked to me about you and stuff like that. And I'm like really 'cause like I've I've had no contact with them like this whole like pre-draft like I believe because he was a lot of me but I was like I'm not really seeing it myself because there's so many other teams like talking to me and like like all the time so I was like so that happened. I was like I guess he was right. They would just kind of like playing their cards low. I let people know yeah So what teams did you talk to the most throughout the process Because I know the story was kind of the same for a couple of the other cowboys. Draftees usually we in nine pandemic world. You know they have guys come in on on thirty visits And Dallas days. So they get to have the this real tight intimate knowledge and we can usually get a good idea of who they're drafting off of who they bring into Dallas But this was a little bit different. What teams did you get to do? Any any pre draft visits Before all of this broke out And then also you know what teams reached out the most. Actually I was. I had a booth set up but didn't happen so ended up getting canceled but Yeah let's see the teams that received the most. I'd say it was Was the panthers. There are going to be the ones to pick me up. The raiders were pretty high on the Wasn't embarrassing me up Thanks a little bit too but they would. All that's been said about they. They weren't black do you. Do you have kind of stick it to him. Attitude that a lot of guys that they get drafted you know. Maybe a little bit later than they expected. You have that kind of attitude that you're GONNA make those thirty one teams pay for not spending that pick on you definitely say I was like No said They're talking to and stuff like that and probably one of my homeboys get drafted which compared to him. I was like okay. I like the more the more you like other corners get drafted in front. Who just it just get higher and higher like all right so it's one of the things I'm carrying. Yes so You you said that the the saints talked to you a little bit. I see you were born in Louisiana but I had to bring it up and I figured I would just bringing up now getting out of the way. So you're at also says that you are a Saints Fan. I mean obviously. Now you're a cowboys fan. What was it like growing up in the in the dfw area you know a bit south of Fort Worth Their In Cleveland and what what was it like growing up in not being a cowboys fan or were there are a lot of saints FANS DOWN IN CLEVELAND. Oh No no saints Fan. I'll say all my friends all my friends. Everyone I know we're we're Catholics. Then for the most part I had a couple of friends who are like a Pakistan and then one was a of a broncos fan but everybody was a cowboys but I couldn't go nowhere. I it's the same cost to the cowboys out. Hearing about it. I'll tell you my even my best friend Dallas Cowboys Fan. So he'll he'll extra about him. They spoken to distance but Yeah there was. There was no thanks fans here on. What even my family or steelers fan so I hate. I hate to go back to kind of what we were on a second ago. But I'm curious so you know you said. Your interactions with the cowboys were briefed throughout the throughout. The off season did you. Did you talk to a coach with on the time that you did talk to him or was it a scout? Was it a front office member? Who who did you talk to when you did get communication with throughout the off season? I can't even remember to illegals probably the scowl because I think it was either at. I think either as a reasonable or combine dot. I mean like I'm saying like it was brief. I remember it so I mean obviously after being drafted I'm sure you've had more conversations with people you've probably been in constant contact would have the conversations with been like. Are you talking more? The positional coaches now. Are you talking to more the still talking to the scouts? Like what's your conversations now if the cowboys like now that you've already been drafted by the team. I will say so after I got drafted One of my new position coach like he he had called me. He was talking to me again and me better and stuff like that and some small. He was telling me like I need to be ready for when the time comes. The basically coach Arista linguists. I think that's Insane. Because a huge he called me rack. Just talk to me about some things and then loud been like kind of like some other trying to get like everything right now. No one's like really knowing what was going on so Right now currently now have they. Amenities said those conversations were brief to. I feel like I have to ask this question. Have they talked to you at all about what they see you doing their spend some speculation that they might see you playing some safety this year as well as corner if you heard at all and if not what are the role they kinda see you? Play this year We I have. I've heard chatter from everywhere. So why hear me? They put me like a pointer safety. me. I don't know having like told me specifically what I'd play but I mean in a situation I bought some. I'm ready to play either one Whatever it gets me on the field honestly so age but Where I really just wanted somebody would bite big business like me like play a man coverage so I can see that corner or I'd like to speed and chapel soccer. Consider that too so it just it just depends what they put me what they think. I'm best fit for them so I'm ready for either one. Yeah and talk about getting on the field I see and I saw this. I knew this before the draft and it was something that really excited me about you. The the kick blocks. What position were you at Were you on the edge? When you're blocking kicks does the ability to get off the line quickly. I know that you were a i. Think at ten six eight guy in the one hundred yard. You obviously ran well in the forty Is that something that you just have? Good snap anticipation You take better angles you know. How do you do so well at blocking kicks? Um So with that lab affairs At my school Tulsa my position because he'd products on special teams The way you feel when you like a freshman or you're younger guy and so I'll carry that on and then like we started practice by up first thing. Is Bill go block and he preaches hard on a beach. Hard on us about Glock. No I can't because that's what we do like even like outside guy who everyone thinks. I take off like play light. Were really mad and all like like we go hard on outside guys knew like China has this. We're coming up trying to block that kick and even the WHO is just out of things. I just took pride in like at practice. You See me trying to block them. Sometimes I block them some time. I won't but just like when it came to the game situations Some didn't take it serious like out here and get off on a rip up on him and then just extend my body and go after. And then did you do any Any returning at Tulsa. I couldn't find anything on it. Was that something that you would be open to to doing. Got Someone opened the door when I was at Tulsa owls backup kick returner but I never I'll always put it into practice by never gotten to it in the game. So it's something I'm open to. Whatever the hell happened to put me. Try Reggie. I'm curious you know we talked about you. Being a saints. Fan Did that. Does that mean that you follow the NFL pretty closely? Were you a guy who watch football Sundays and followed it? Throughout the week. I'll I'll watch Chance but like most of the time I'll either study understand. I I kept up with it like for a little bit. Yeah the reason I ask you. That is because around cowboys. Nation cowboys fans. The cornerbacks have struggled to take the football away in Dallas. For what seems like forever now and there's been somewhat of a philosophy change this year because they they draft you. Who's been a guy who's been able to take the football Tulsa they draft trayvon digs out of Alabama. And the second round. Another guy. Who's been able to take the football away at Tulsa? They put a greater emphasis on taking the football way. How important is getting interceptions to you in? What's that were is that? How are you going to be able to show that coming into training camp when it does happen that you can not only cover good you can not only defend the room but you can also take the football away and give the football back to that dynamic offense that we expect to see in Dallas about really important about say Makoto told you if you have to bog down on first down. What is it house like know like second down? Take the ball away you get in the back to the office. Always thought that was twenty dollars. This is really important. Just like Get off the field as quickly as possible and get the ball back into your office. His hand Also yes that's exactly. I plan on doing about they. All the yeah pathbreaking was fine. But like OPTIMA goals Get the ball and I plan on like just playing my tight coverage and then getting my head around look for the ball each chance I get. Then we'll go from there. Do you think your instincts or your ball skills make you so good at taken the football away at Tulsa or both. I mean what you put a hit or the other. I think that a little bit of both I think happy boss off. My instincts was still kind of growing. I know like I know kindergarten to the ball. I really was like I was really just trying to get my head around at any point. Where the ball is that Trying to get my housing quarterback and see like where he's throwing the ball or just let's just watching like the receiver and seemed like his Move on top of them not secure so I mean I'd probably say far all my instincts are still like it's great like they're still like growing has right now.

What's where's your bread and butter in your opinion. Be In Preston I like the pace Than just compete with them. Like right off the ball them having too much space. How about that? Rather just like make airtight right from the beginning. What I like to hear what I here. And that's obvious. Take it with your link with your physicality with your size. It's all there and then you kind of pair that with that athleticism. Have you always been that natural athlete? Growing up playing football or is that something you Kinda grew into later in your career so have always been like a natural athlete. I mean when I was literally while I was more fat but I'll still want them to cook. I'll play mostly like I'm out too big run a ball. Obviously but I've always been like a like a big guy and then I kinda got slimmer as I got older but Yeah I've always been pretty actually athletic and then just working. I work in like in the weight room. Health that M- it's rare to see a guy that's over six foot over two hundred pounds with your long arms and then also being able to run in the four fours and being able to jump thirty six inches one hundred thirty two inches on the broad job. Like you're you're testing at the combine was freaky when you compare it with your size and everything else that you bring to the table where those numbers that you hit the combine were those some of the better ones that you hit throughout the off season or did you hit some more even better numbers throughout your training. I saw Wah broad jump. I feel like that was my goal. The whole town. It'll and flip and I was always getting close to try ten eleven or like we had a little little Makalu Combine and had like ten eleven on that. Okay we'll have to hit eleven feet so that was pretty good Burt was not what I wanted to be A. I think I'll just kind of exhausted from the time 'cause I had like thirty nine so thirty six wasn't like it was still pretty good too mad So I didn't like the bench to of events like PAS me we're hitting pretty close to that While we're training Mendan- like out there got a little gentlemen. Russia mellow one or two more. So I'll three like all those numbers like pretty much what I thought they were GONNA be. Yes that training where Where did you train at Leading up to the the combine opportunity to Michael Johnson performance in mckinney Texas. Okay Nice Nice Office over there for the Media Day when you guys were you guys were running through and doing all your drills and stuff. But I didn't I didn't I don't think I realize you were there And then now are you just training you know home gym or or do you have a gym that you have a buddy open up for you like how is that working during all this quarantines on off with that like. I just go to High School since I'm I'm pretty close. My high school coaches to I'd go to high school and work on the field and not say as way I have some weights here that keeps me like good but for the most part was working on technique and my My conditioning which is a big thing. Those things I work out when work on the field and Workout what's the biggest thing technically that you're trying to work out right now for the most part. I'm trying to like make trump stand low when I back transitions been known high nose and then they also like mess up a metal different things. When you're high so it just trying to say like a reasonable level and I get to high back. Those transitions sounds like you read one of the few weaknesses. I've I've put in your scouting report that sometimes you play a little high net might mess with your fluidity changing directions and everything like that. So that's that's cool to hear you say some like I've been here. Makoto bike Who BY Your big corner but you got pay low like now. Let's talk about like just transition. Look at the tape all the time with my okay. Yeah hey seeing it and some people don't see it some people you'll say I've got no no I don't I don't think that's an issue. That's cool that you're able to kind of see that no that's not that you got to improve on. We all want to keep you too much longer. You've been you've been awesome guests but we'll get you out of here. You got a lot of things. You're you're doing i. Did we both ready story by? Dfw reporter Clarence Hill recently talking about you being diagnosed being a deaf your left ear when it was in third grade. Is that correct you? Can you tell us a little bit about that background? And you know what came about with how that happened and how you've kind of some of those obstacles in your life with that so with that by how happened was like my mom was always like yelling at me too. She wasn't listening to her. What do you not hear me so like like I ended up getting checked by my school? And then that's when I found out the prayer to my left ear and so after that I ended up getting a hearing aid which I walk like probably like a year less like I ended up being like all of these questions about Ed kids. You don't want like cure at all. And so I I me Dylan would it? I mean much like every out or every time someone was like tiger him like what like Catholic. Work fulltime so sometimes. I just can't hear you like if you're on the wrong side and my left side obviously harder here on this side but Yeah mostly like getting people like I tell them they'd be like they kind of whisper in that era like like. I still can't quite hear completely but I've been cool about the I deal with like turning to my right ear or toes myself in a direction where I can hear you. Better Really had an impact me on the field too much during my college days because one of my teammates new so they knew like either yelp to call for most of the time are signals were hand signals. Anyway so I knew those from operative It's been like somewhat of a talent is not doing anything about they. I'll look for you normally and is it just. Is it just a loss of hearing or do you have any like tonight is where you get ringing in your ears or anything like that? So I think it's like the loss of here and I got a screen basis for the most part the trouble of people's voices so I always here we're talking about wouldn't be always like like Get like what they're saying. How did I mean? I think we'll like the rain doesn't happen everybody from time to time. Your ears ringing right. Yeah I WANNA say like I have that like medically I mean they do rings sometimes. But that's both of them. Gotcha Gotcha yeah really. I was just curious if it's something that impacted you on the field you know we're getting calls or getting you know audibles in defense alignments whatever whatever you know try to hamper Jer. Sounds like you got a good grip on it and you you got to figure it out. Yes so I think my last question here. Is You go through your your history your historical on your Tulsa Bio here and it goes through all of your different pictures so I have to ask. Are you going to keep growing out your hair or 'cause I've I've talked to a lot of dudes that you know. They'll they'll grow their hair out their entire college career and then they'll cut it when they get to the NFL. Are you keeping it are you? Are you cutting it off as actually crazy that you asked? That's been something I've been thinking about not just in quarantine something I'm thinking like. Now that's probably cut my dreads. How would look I? I've been seriously considering. I think I'm GONNA give it like after appointing. I really have my mind right on. Cut Them Up. I think my no. I think that's a good idea. I think you really got to get back into the world and let it ride for a little bit and think you know if you still want to chop it off after that and you do that But but don't make any decision once your. They'll get a haircut. I you know I got. I got just a couple more questions for you. We'll get you out of here. I'm just curious. Is there a you know? We talked about the turnover of the cowboys. Secondary You know bringing in some new coaches new new players new philosophies and taking the ball away but growing up watching football. Was there any defensive back? That's played for the cowboys. That you Kinda you know. Modeled your game after and maybe not even cowboy maybe somebody just in the NFL that you kind of model your game. After in Uganda you not copy their their tendencies. But you kind of model like I said modern game after his probably the best way to put it I'll be honest like No when I was when I was younger like I watched football from Tom. Tom Really didn't understand this. I was like I'll watch like my dad's beyond some I just like to hang out with my dad and like that but I didn't think I actually wasn't watching too much cowboys football too. But now new one Gotcha. Gotcha all right last question I got for. We'll get you out of here. Man is I like to ask this question in all our podcast. But you know cowboys nation. They're getting a new guy in the fourth round. Come in play cornerback. Maybe even some safety. I think that the fan base is extremely excited about what you bring the table with your physical and athletic traits. What are they getting in? Reggie Robinson own the field but also what are they going to get in? Reggie Robinson off the field you know doing work in the community or what. He's going to do off the field to help build that cowboys brand. I on big in like the play by play like I'm coming in and I'm trying to start off back I was. I'm trying to be the best player can be about. They had me a corner. I'm GonNA play the best. I can play safety the Best I can. I'm like I'm just trying to be all around like the best person I'm I'm trying to be. One of the best will come to Dallas especially being so close pound. I'll say I got a lot of people in my back already. I have some support so I just don't feel even more And that support a player off the field about the. I'm trying to do community working Tom. I can't whenever fit to my schedule. And then just like. This can't be engaged with the communities that can awesome man. We really appreciate your time. Reggie and hopefully we can get you back on. You know the closer we get the training camp and you start getting in this. He's positional battles and and fighting with some of these receivers. We love to have you back on. I found good.

Brews & The 'Boys: Discussing Trevon Diggs and Neville Gallimore

"Uh-huh welcome to another edition of the bruise of the boys. Podcast brought to you by the blogging. The Boys Todd Cats Network Sh- way media and the box media podcast network. My name is Mike where you can follow me on twitter at Mr Sizemore with me. As always he's the man of every hour he's too damn sweet to be. Sour. Mr Tom Riled and we are sweet too. We are very very sweet because the Dallas cowboys just wrapped up in the third round of the NFL draft the second and third round. I should say and they have come away with a couple of really nice elections and Just like the theme of last night when the wind it just Kinda fell the way it fell Tom. The cowboys were able to pick. Cd LAMB WHEN. No one in their right mind should've let that man get to the cowboys who already have amazing. Wide Receiver core CD landfall. So the cowboys and they say well why the hell not go ahead and add to the receivers that we have. The Eagles already having enough trouble covering Amari Cooper. Now they can cover him to you. Have to give full credit to Jerry Jones and the entire staff for sticking to their board and saying look as Stephen Jones call. It was a blinking light up there and they went for it. And you know it's it's got to be the most exciting draft picks the cowboys have made. Maybe since another wide receiver name of Dez Bryant. Yeah Yeah and you know everybody's heard about the CD lamb thing. That's been the all the talk. All Friday was just how the cowboys were allowed to make this pick and how how salty the whole entire NFL was over. You go read the trolling the nation by our good friend. One cool customer if you need to see about that but let's talk about the second and third round because it's like the theme that was in round one carried over to round two and three. Just you'RE GONNA sit they're not going to entertain any trade or certainly not gonNa try to trade up because the the draft was mapping out. Nicely where you were giving a player. That probably was rated very highly on the cowboys. Drop or do you have to assume that. And they just lay in wait and let it come to them and you know and then we'll on going into round two. I was kind of watching it. But you just kept. There were a lot of players. Even as they like mckinney. A gravier mckinney's got picked off. Okay there still were so many players of value for the cowboys. Xavier mckinney goes. And that's the first like aw van type of light type of moment. He's he's out you know. Then that's a guy that the cowboys were definitely targeting. Possibly even in the first round of if all bets are off and they couldn't get a guy that they wanted and but then you see the way it's going and you say yeah but if exam your mckinney is gone. He's the safety off the board grant del. That goes shortly after that but they're still so many good players but the cowboys light and it's like why would we try to trade up and give up this opportunity when we feel very good about a great player to us? And that's exactly what happened at fifty one. The cowboys got themselves a first round. Cornerback intrepid Trayvon Dick's from Alabama. Yes yes Which you know interesting bloodline has got a brother who will probably helped him hone his skills a little bit different step on you become a pretty good corner at the house you know you know. How brothers are you know the you know they go out there trying to best one and a couple of bloody noses after a few of those yeah and digs was high on the cowboys board Tom. As a matter of fact there was talk that he was kind of the emergency washed out. Pick if everything else got washed out on the draft board and they had to take someone because they couldn't trade back seventeen. He was one of their options. There he certainly an option for US trade back if they had to move out of seventeen to get him at fifty one a whole round later. Yeah I'm GonNa take that on and take that to the bank. It'd be very very happy with it. I mean why not because the patients that they showed to you know there was talk before today. About how the cowboys were coming up with some packages that they had to move up and stuff because everyone felt that the way the second round. I always feel that. The second and third rounds of the draft are always the more interesting meaty parts of the draft. Because you but first round you kind of know where guys are slated to fall and you get a couple of surprises like the cowboys got a CD lamb but you really. The second and third day is where you see the true value of the draft. Come out and and everybody knew that this class wide receivers cornerbacks and defensive backs would be a pretty. You know link. There's a good tap that those positions but to think that the cowboys a week ago were saying hey if all else fails and we have nothing at seventeen. Let's just take that corner we really liked trayvon digs and let's let's be happy with it and they got him in the second round fifty one. I mean that's incredible. It's almost like having you know a pick in the middle and a pick at the end of the for front or more like a pick you know in the upper third year when you look at the value that lamb had it was a great one two punch for them to put together and the key thing is they did. We were all thinking they were going to do. In the first round. They helped the defense. They went and got themselves someone to bolster the The Cornerback Room. Because everybody said they needed because in that second round. Tom I mean how happy were new to see a bunch of offense players. I Oh yeah I was. I was just cheering it on. You know I mean more players down to you. Yeah that was. That was exactly what had happened in the first round. It happened all over again. We didn't get quite the stunner but you know as I was saying you know if you consider. Cd Lamb a grand slam. I travel on digs is kind of a good soul homer you know or maybe a triple yards on really good a really good player and I you know. I can't see people being too unhappy. Unless they just didn't get their guy and even then you have to say well. He's pretty good well and let me let me give credit where credit is due to our great friend of the show and blogging voice. Buddy Danny Phantom he has been on Trayvon digs for weeks and weeks and weeks. Now he didn't necessarily say that he would want trayvon at seventeen but he did say he fell. Everything fell the way it did in the cowboys. Were panicking seventeen. That he would be okay with this pick. And here's why if you WANNA look for a corner with the with the upside and the traits and characteristics that you want in a Mike Nolan. Defense Hungry Player. That attacks the football. You're not going to find a cornerback. That gets the football more than Trayvon. Dick's he goes after football. He gets the football he is takes it away. He plays the position receiver and yes. He's only you know he's a very inexperienced he's been playing corner for just a just a couple of years now but he start started out as a wide receiver. He started out also wide receiver. So there you go. Tom Just laid out for you. The reason he plays the ball like a wide receivers cousin used to be one. So you got trayvon. Dick I just think trayvon digs for the cowboys. Secondary Big Big Win in the Second Round. Big Win win you know. In most cases you would be sitting there trying to pick between a guy a couple of guys you like when I really get the feeling that Trevan digs was somebody to cowboys loved. Yeah I think he was really high on them and I think they have been just thrilled to death to have still gotten on the clock. See Him still sitting there now. Now Tom I know that you don't To continue a little bit of our discussion on Trayvon digs before we get into the third round. I know that you don't you don't read too many astounding reports until we get right down to the nitty gritty of the draft. But I mean most folks are are kind of high on this. Pick their thinking that the that the cowboys kind of needed to come out of this. Dr David Hellman said that he believed the cowboys new to come out of this trap with players that can contribute immediately. Yeah and it seems like Trayvon. Gigs is on his way to a starting role with the cowboys. At least at the very least he's the third best cornerback on the roster. Yeah I don't think there's GonNa be any question that he's going to be condemned contending for a starting job with the nickel and if he doesn't get the starting job right off the bat. Well okay. We'll be all right I think you will certainly have a role to play. And you gotTa have depth as well so you know it's really I just can't see them as being unhappy with this anyway. That does is just like well guys. Give it a chance. I think he's GonNa work out. Fine Yeah were there any guys in the second round that you perhaps were really hoping would would be a cowboy or was trayvon digs. The guy wanted all along I just got to ask where. There's some guys out there that you thought man I would love to have. Had this guy mckinney may have been the one guy that I kind of would like to gain. And he's an the safety and who did who ended up getting mckinney which team in the whole Hang on I got got on a flip back there. I looked back up in goal up here a year. He went to run passing game. Yeah he went. He went all the way up. Thirty six and he went to our beloved rivals. The New York giants. Yeah Dry Right. He gets to come in so he gets to come in and try to cover Mr Lamb. Yeah well tough. Shit That's GonNa be easier said than done You know I think that once once we got down into the second round you know there was probably a couple of guys that the cowboys were were targeting. I know that Zach bond was a big target like possibly a big target for the cowboys. But I think that the corner outweighed the defense in there and I think that digs was higher on their board him anyway possibly on their board than than what. Zach bond was but as that pick was coming. You know coming down to the cowboys taking digs. You just saw that. Wow the cowboys like last night. We're going to have like like the first round where they were able to choose between two players. They really liked they. Were going to get to do it again. Because they had guys like Bolton there in bond there in digs there and they really got to make a pit right there and they went. They went with the corner. And I don't think this is necessarily a pick You know it is A. It's a kick for their need in a sense that Ben went and addressed the cornerback position. But I don't think that out of the second rounders much better you could have done. Been getting a guy like digs. Yeah as I said. This was a borderline for frowned option for the cowboys. Yeah how can you can point You know he's I just don't see he's still see him being someone they're going to regret taking. Yeah and and I mean and think about it. This way like the the cowboys from what they'd been doing in these in these first two days of the draft. They've got to be feeling great because their rivals in the Northeast Philadelphia are ready to burn the city down. Let's take a moment before we move on third-round. Let's talk about what the Eagles did please. Tom Regale us to you know. Of course the eagles were upset because they wanted to trade up for CD LAMB in jump ahead of the cowboys because they were a little worried and worried you no worries came to fruition. They were upset about that. You know Otc DID HIS. Trolling the nation. And they were just livid about. We can't plug that enough guys. Go read that please. And so they were you know. The Eagles apparently decided that having to trade their second round pick To get up ahead of the cowboys wasn't worth it. So they hung on to the second round pick and they came up to after The cowboys selected digs and they drafted quarterback jalen hurts. And it's not. It's not so much that well okay hurts is kind of a maybe quarterback is what are they trying to do? Yes exactly when you got that. Receiver major needs at receiver. They could've taken to receivers and backlogs had them take receivers. They need defensive backs. They need a lot of different things because that team a couple of years ago was miraculously made their way to a super bowl win. That is not the same team they are. They they won the NFC east last year by default. So it just wasn't a great day and if you are if you have any time to go check out. Bgn bleeding nation. Watch just to sit there. Sit behind like a little. Just be as quiet as a mouse. And Watch the world burn. It is not suitable for. It's not suitable for children. It's not suitable any but I gotta give credit target our Guy Danny Phantom one more time because when we were questioning. Why would the eagles go and get a quarterback? Tom You had mentioned something about I use you had stepped away for a moment. And you said the greatest you know. They already have the greatest quarterback to ever win a super bowl on the bench and then Danny's reply was well. It sounds like the Eagles are trying to get Carson Wentz another ring major great great message Carson wentz fans. You are the man. You are quarterback. We're going to draft the guy that's going to fill in for you when you inevitably go down the only thing I can say after that after those that exchange between you and Danny was Dan you win the night. That's it right there. You win but it just. I don't understand you know maybe jalen hurts. Turns out to be a pretty good player in a lot of people have doubted. Jalen hurts in college and he has done a pretty good job for himself. He was a runner up to the heisman. Trophy with Oklahoma. But I just I don't see I don't see the the draft strategy at all in what the Eagles have done and I don't see how they got better in fact in the first round you can make. You can make in the first round Tom. You could have made arguments that they chose the wrong receiver. They chose Jalen Reagan instead of Justin Jefferson. So it's just it's been it's been a it's gone a little bit awry for them and we love it. Yes because you know what they spend so much time obsessing over us. We'll spend a few minutes talking smack about them now. We move on to the third round and I think that what was the most interesting part about the third round was yet again. Tom Be Cowboys. Were sitting there and they had a lot in front of them a lot of decisions that they could possibly make because guys that they didn't expect to be around we're still around at the start of the third round and You know if this was one where you saw some people that you really were thinking man if they could just do like CD lamb and keep dropping Zach bond was one that are really interested in and you know he was a borderline first rounder for Mitt for some people and he made it all the way to pick seventy four before the yes. Yes that was sudden matched him up. That was such a heartbreaker you know. Yeah he was. He was one that I think a lot of people were kinda hoping was going to hang around and you had some other people that might have been interesting for cowboys. Like Julian. Guevara and Ashton Davis. Yeah and they were taken before they could They could get there and Justin week.'. Was another guy that was maybe going to slide enough for them to be interesting and it would have been interesting to see what have happened if he'd hung around your but when the cowboys were on the clock You know there were still some good options left an and so you want to go ahead and announce the picker shall I do it? Let's just say who I'll say? Who's on the board? I'll let you announce the pig so the cowboys you know. They had lots of guys that they were sitting there. Looking at Jordan Elliott was still available. The defensive tackle they had curtis weaver. It was mainly. There was a lot of value in that defensive line and the cowboys chose they chose Neville Gallimore that got him another Oklahoma player. A teammate of CD lamb at defensive tackle and You know he's described as a one gappor and he's supposed to have a really good motor Didn't have a lot of production. You know so he. He wasn't the perfect choice. He didn't get a lot of sacks and there was a feeling that maybe he should have Produce Ola but more in that aspect. But then you have to remember. We're talking about pick eighty two It's a little bit harder to get a walk in starter and you know. This is a team that that side Gerald McCoy and Don Terry poll in the off season. So they weren't drafting this guy rolling out there week one. Yeah and and at this point and the draft in the third round. The Edge rushers. That were left. Curtis Weaver couple of guys that you might be high on but most of them were all unfinished products in all of them. Were kind of guys. That would need a little bit more time to get ready to be. Starting some of them need to put on weight Just to be able to play in the NFL So didn't Gallimore here. Made a lot of sense when you think that gala more can kind of step in immediately and play a role kind of he has favorable light comparisons to the former Dallas cowboy me collins. Yeah And you know he's he's three four which is a pretty good way for three tech and L. hopefully at some point he will get into an NFL oil run. Bad kind of that was one of the other. Things that got sideline was all that in a a fellow level training but You Know He. He's a good way to look that I like to look at. It was brought up because I was kind of a listening to a lot to the draft of on one wall on five three the fan and I think it was dame brugare was one that was mentioned that you know. Get their loser. Name their voices a little bit but I think they asked him and he said that all three of these picks had one thing in common and that they were taking about ten spots later than he had them slaughtered in his big board He said he had a CD. Lamb at seven and he got taken it seventeen. I've seen you know the cowboys said they had him six on their board on O'Connor lives the had him at six. Bob Sturm had him at six. So you know. He came in about ten spots behind Matt. It's great value for the cowboys. Saying same thing with trump on digs he was slotted somewhere around the thirty five to forty he gets taken at fifty one great value there and low behold noble gallimore. He's up around seventy sixty nine seventy kind of player so once again. You're getting value. You're getting a player taken later than the people that are ranking them on these boards. Say they should go. Yeah that has any sorry going at Tom yet to that to me to do that as consistently with all three of your picks especially with because you know the closure of the first round the first pick it is the harder it is to do that. So seething lamb was a big win in that and digs and gallimore were also wins and that says that the Dallas Staff is doing something right. Yeah and I'm just to further further drive your point home a little bit for all of you folks out there. The subscriber read pro football focus. I know a lot of folks like pro football focus. A lot of folks. Don't like them. Whatever whatever it is on the PF draft board CD lamb was ranked. Six trayvon digs was ranked thirty first and Neville. Gallimore was ranked fifty. I know CD lamb. Seventeen trayvon digs to fifty one when he was a borderline first rounder and Neville Gallimore. Who was a was a surefire? Second Rounder by most draft ports fell to eighty two quality. Yeah you just. You just can't if you're doing that round after round after round what it does is it just increases the chance that you're going to hit on a draft pick because let's face it even first rounders could bust in the deeper in the draft. You go as a general rule of thumb. The more likely is that the player just not gonNA work out. Yes so you know getting through the first three rounds in getting players that actually look like they were valued higher than that to all these outside of value waiters. That's that sensible something because one thing we found out that the there's there's guys that have survived and continued to do this. You know ranking of draft picks. And they've done it because they've established a level of credibility and when you see so many of them agreeing on this stuff it's a positive side it's not the be all and end all that's going to be determined when we finally get these guys out on the field and see how they play but it's good to have you know now we're coming up on day three. The cowboys have four picks. There's not a lot of likelihood that they're going to hit on those but it's going to be great to track and see if they're still managing to catch people that are falling past their actual value. Yeah because when you look at most drafts. They typically have a theme for teams that are doing well like I said. Pfm PRO football focus. Mike Renner who's one of those guys that people respect in the draft world. Mike said with CD LAMB and Trayvon digs. Never Gal. More than the cowboys are ripping the DOORKNOB off this draft. Every pick they made mutt. Were much higher on most draft boards. So when you look at it if you want to. I think the only pick that that most folks are that some folks were just kind of like not as excited as they were about. Was this last. One of Neville Gallimore because defensive tackles on the Board and Defensive Linemen that were on the board at the time one in particular Jordan Elliott People there are some that would have preferred Jordan Elliott but to me Jordan. Elliott is a guy that was a one year starter who had issues at Texas getting back on the field due to inconsistencies. Went to Mizzou was a one year starter and mop the floor with less competition that he played lesser competition. Now never gallimore played in the Big Twelve. Were most people. Don't even know how to play. Defense Okay Yeah. And he did very well. The production have not been as high as you would want but this is a guy that was going up against much better competition. And he's got more notches on his belt in terms of experience at a guy a guy that can give you some snaps immediately. I WANNA give all shut out 'cause on our own Connor Livesey who's on one of our. Does one of our fellow podcasts. Yeah he put out a draft guide and he and his big bore those interesting thing you know he had. Cd Lamma Six He had he had a a trayvon. Digs at forty on his board. So he was pretty happy with those picks he must be pretty excited about level gala more because he'd had him ranked as the thirty second player on the entire. Yeah Yeah Yeah so little. Little bit is script. There may be something there you know so I been awhile since I've gone. We've got three rounds into the draft. And you really haven't had that pick where you're going like well. Yeah we'll just have to accept that one. These are all three very good. Picks is the best art to the draft that I can remember in a while and I will get I will say my piece and then I will give you the floor for the fine finale before we get out of here. What I want to say is that I looked at this draft the same way as guys like David Hellman and I think Tom you looked at it as well. Is that the cowboys. Made some very very telling decisions this off season. They decided that they are paying Amari Cooper after last year deciding that they were paying tank. They're paying Elliott and they paid the linebacker Jalen. Smith may be a little early. Who Cares about that? They come into this year they decide. They're paying the quarterback they're paying their wide receiver. But they're gonNA have to let some high priced free agents go. They had left their sack leader from last year. Robert Quinn go. They had to let their cornerback. The best one on the roster go. They had to let their slot receiver go. Okay what they did in this draft more than makes up for some of their losses because they got guys. They knew that they had to go in after the twenty nineteen debacle of draft. Where Tristan Hill is your first pick and he gives you almost nothing on the field where you get almost you get nothing from Connor McGovern but there's hope for him this year. You only have one guy that actually produces and he's in a backup role and that is your running back. That's your running back to you. Got In the fourth round. They're like that's your only guy that that that contributed you had to come into this draft after what you've done in the off season you did a great job and defensive tackle. You had to come and produce in this draft and what the cowboys did is. They didn't feel pressure. They didn't feel like we gotta reach. We gotta get this Gaga that which we see teams do that. Every single year writers. They didn't do that. They waited and they they let players come to them and man did they that they hit they hit your is pretty sad when know Tony Pollard? That was the name that you were grasping for having done this long enough I can tell it happens to somebody When that's your best production from an entire draft class that's that's twenty nineteen was not a good draft for the cowboys. I think conor mcgovern may help salvage that. This looks to be just a massive leap ahead and I have to go back to the fact that this says that there is a real Different role for the head. Coach of the Dallas Cowboy drafts game and I think we saw in twenty nineteen back in two thousand eighteen when they took chuck Taco Charleston bed. The coaches were coming in. They were pushing some decisions. I believe that were not initially healthy. Now this is literally you know. We've talked about the mythical blessed player available. They will only seem to be taking the best player available with Seaney lamb. They did that almost purely wide. Receiver was a position of need but it was third or fourth down the list so they jumped on him Then they came in on day to address the defense. They got the secondary they got the line. Bolstered up Got More picks to see what they can scrounge up out there so this is a go ahead Tom. I was GONNA and this is just. You know it's it's a great situation to be as. I said I think even if they really don't get anything tomorrow to ask draft that's what I was thinking if even if they don't do anything tomorrow but go after guys traits Tom. Who cares like they've done so well in the first three they and they did it by remaining. You know diligent patient not losing their control. You can only control what you can control. And that's what the decisions you make not letting others affect you and make you jump up or give up more value in uncertain year to go and grabbed. Is You just kind of let it fall to you that way? I would be remiss if I didn't mention this Tom Today. Marks are hundred and fifty first episode. We've been at this for three years. My friend Gosh three years you've been putting May Yeah Tom Times Fun. When you're having flies or something on those life you're not you're not a man of all the words.

Hello Boys and girls welcome in to the boys and girl podcast with cowboys, NFL, network reporter, Jayne, slater and NFL network producer Bobby Bell. Cowboys community with the inside scoop on the Dallas Cowboys. Now coming straight to you from the lone star state. Here's Jane and Bobby. All right we'll what age raft and what a debut for Mike McCarthy here in Dallas you know. There were so many concerns about what the strapped with look like, and even the cowboys own admission that leading into this strap that they had a glitch. During their mock draft during a trade which I loved Jerry sort of with us on. Things by all accounts not only went well for the cowboys it was as if in. Like it was a little bit of Murphy's law anything that could go wrong did. They finally got some good Karma Inoue Bobby. Were you as shocked? I was deceived away. This draft went for them this year. I didn't think there was any way at all CD. Lamb would fall to them at seventeen, and I didn't think there was any way at all that trayvon digs. It'd be there fifty one at ending. There was any way at all Neville Gallimore. Would we eighty two and I didn't think there was any way at all. The Bradley and I would be all the way at the back end of the fifth, so they got incredible value all across the board throughout the draft. Just an unreal classes, you said a lot of times we're sitting there. Watching the board and guy, he just came off and this guy came off and rats. We really liked that guy and we thought that was the target and. Would when we do get some sort of miracle of. Thornhill falls to you or T. J. Watt falls to you. Then it's been tristen hill, or it's been Taco Charlton, then it's. It's been a little bit disappointing for the Fan Base I think this is the first time in. Years that fans were just right there with every pay goad. Yes, yes, yes, and it's because they get CD lamb. Trayvon digs Neville Gallimore, and all these guys at such incredible value Daniel Jeremiah for NFL network. It said that his greatest value picking the entire draft, a guy who went more spots away from where DJ had him ranked than any other player in the draft was Bradley and I and he said the cowboys got him more than a hundred picks later than he had had him ranked in his class. Oh. Value all over the board and a lot of exciting players, and we'll get to talk to a couple of them today. I thought what was so interesting about the cd-rom pick. Was I think I saw one juror mock draft that had deleon falling to the cowboys at seventeen and I joked on NFL now when I when I did the show earlier today I said old takes exposed, I said the fans are going to want the. Godley pick a CD Leeann, but it's GonNa. Make more sense for them to go and get a guy like caleb on chase on, and there was Kayla. Von Chase on who we talked about it. Offensive Player. We also talked about CJ. Henderson, who had already went the quarterback in Aj Carol, who was already gone at that point, and then there was a possibility of trading back. Picking up Cesar, Ruiz and in possibly getting another pick something that I thought was interesting, the saints when did they went and got Cesar Ruiz? by just holding it. There pick twenty four. But. The fact CD lamb fell to them and by their own admission they did not do one mock draft were cd-rom was in fact, they didn't speak to CD LAN. Obviously they were familiar with them. He played three times at a t and T. Stadium, so they knew who the guy was but she's absolutely fascinating that here was this guy seemed like such a luxury item and that Jerry Jones is? He never came out and said it when Calvin Watkins after Jerry. Where are you making these fix? The Internet identified that they were in fact on their yacht. The side by side pictures were absolutely amazing. What such a decadent pick on an extravagant! You're and I've got think that Jerry Jones was doing cannonballs off that yacht when things were done just because of the versatility of CD LAN and now a look at this offense. I just want to put a little respect on my boy. Michael Gal's name all these. Coming out and saying well. The cowboys have got a Maury Cooper. A tyranny Williams terrance Williams has been gone and he's been gone for a long time I turn. Out In the club Terrance Williams was cut by an XFL team three months ago so I mean. There have been several transactions since terrance. Williams was last on a football team. Respect on Michael. Gallup's Dame, a guy who got increasingly better as the year went on, and I hated that the game in Philly came down to Michael Gallup in the end zone, and he he was close. He had that mall, but put some respect on this kid's name, but now you're adding guy like CD lamb to the mix when you've already got chew guys who had over a thousand receiving yards next year I. also think what's going to be interesting. Bobby and you can speak a little bit more because you watch lot of the. The tape his contributions and he can make on special teams. Yeah, he's I. Mean He's going to be, and that's actually kind of the interesting thing I think they got in a couple of their picks, not just CD lamb, who can contribute on special teams potentially but I think Reggie Robinson the corner. They picked their. They talked about you know his special teams. Ability I would guess Trayvon digs is gonNA. Do some special teams work? Digs is a a a really hard worker and a guy with a real zeal for knowledge and. Wanting to do everything he can help the team win so I think that you know a low key thing that. A lot of people haven't been talking about is how much of the cowboys have improved their special teams unit, which was a disaster last year from missed kicks to awful. Kick coverage to telling somebody you know to Code Fair catch and fair catch. No, don't do what you want. Everything from communication to execution everywhere across the board was awful with the special teams last year I. Honestly think it cost them a couple of games, and they've done a lot not just to improve their offense and their defense with this draft and with free agency, but they've also done a lot to help. Really strengthen and solidify that special teams. Unit. Yes, so let's talk about all the areas they covered. Which is amazing to me that they were able to do it this way this year they covered the cornerback position. They covered the defensive line position both in the draft, and also with some of their undrafted free agents Rondell. Carter of course, a guy out of James Madison's. They went and picked up. They gave him type of money that you typically see seventh rounder. That's how much they were buying into him. which interestingly enough to their center that they decided to trade back for with the Eagles, a guy that went to Wisconsin similar to Travis smart guys offensive Lineman, coming out of Wisconsin, so. I I gotTa tell you. I was really really impressed. The draft in the way we've got him in our show today. They wind up that late round. quarterback Mike McCarthy in reference that he wanted a guy that that they want to have meaningful reps if they want to develop for trade value and a guy that slandered Tony. Romo a bit in tweets. Tony has a bit of a Beehive Hey. Hey, if we're if we're to look in and follow history than slandering Tony Romo tweet on draft day means that he's about to get paid thirty five million in four years. You know you're all about trends and analysis here. Bobby but I think fans are going to be really impressed with been. I know I was when I walked away our interviews, so we've got him coming up and then also claim accuse the defensive backs special. Coach that works with. Rudy remarks, trayvon's eggs and Reggie Robinson. You can also sort of tell us what they expect from this physician in area where how he's really gonNA shutdown corner. In Dallas in recent memory, although I would argue I thought Jordan. Lewis a really began to step up last year I'd like to see a were. His game takes him this year under this new defense, but this is a jammed pack show. We keep bringing them to you guys because we're averaging a little over ninety thousand downloads and listen, so thank you so much, but let's get to know. Still have these new cowboys players. Shall we joining us? Now is new cowboy's quarterback then to new chief from James Madison. The team's seventh round pick. You can follow him on twitter at be underscored Ghanouchi. Six Ben. How're you doing good? Appreciate you for having me on. Absolutely excited to have you here and. Talk About I. Guess the lead up to the draft. Was Dallas team you knew was interested. Did you have a lot of conversations with them? And then the leading up all the way to getting a phone call from the team? To to explain it. It was probably the craziest three days of my life and and Saturday. Kinda put the exclamation point on that, but yeah. Leading up dowse was one of the four five teams that I had had constant. Communications leading up to it and. Doug Nas Mar the quarterback. Coaches wanted to kind of drove the conversations that that led up to the weekend, and then as we kinda got closer to this thing, he called me. You know Wednesday before the drafted started in that he called me Friday, you know. Hey, we'll touch Saturday just as we kind of get close to this thing worshiping you on our radar. We'd love to have you here in Dallas or even see how this whole thing plays out. Obviously, that had no idea. HOW ARE WE GONNA go? And then at the beginning of the sixth round He started coming in contact and saying. Hey, you know we're trying to get you. We don't. We don't want another team to get you on, so so just keep your phone on. You should keep you updated as we get closer to this thing. I got to tell you Ben. You got a little exposed. I love twitter, bobby and I try to give agents a heads up. If we see something on twitter that maybe they need to clear up ahead of the draft. You couldn't have possibly seen this, but a little Romo slander. To Warn Romo has like a beehive as it applies Dallas. How much you? Love Slash hate mail. Did you get when people saw that that tweet in? Do you want to clarify that? Yeah. Sure I'd love to clarify so it was is for two thousand fourteen in now it may I think I was price seventeen years old at the time, and there's probably a national televised game on, and he had made a bad or something. That's just the first thing that POPs into my mind but shoot. I've had plenty of those. Before thrown five interceptions, every game in a four before I'm sure that the Benvenuti's horrible tweets or refer go after that, too, but now Tony Romo, one of those guys that very similar situation came from FCS school. Battle his way in and had one of the. Most respected careers in in Dallas in. been able to. Kind of come into a similar situation as him in play the same team as him. You can ask for anything else while interesting parallels there, bobby. If you think about you know, there are tons and it's funny. I I was I was doing a podcast with will cain for me spn on Monday and that was when when we started talking about Ben and the pick for Ben. Will said that was the first player that came to his mind when he was watching them a little bit. It's like man. There's some some Romo stuff here with the improvisation and some of the fun little throws on the run. I got to say you know you're not alone. Because Dak, Prescott on draft night also had a bunch of people re tweeted in an old tweet where he had said the cowboys needed to get rid of Romo, and then he had actually sit in the same room as him, which was probably a little much, but I mean I. think everybody gets. That's that's a little in the past and you know nobody wants to for the record. I don't think. No, you already take or retake that I actually think. I got to defend him here a little bit full disclosure. Ask people air their dirty laundry without giving a little bit of my own. Put a tweet out there about Erin Andrews a few years back, and then of course we end up working on the sidelines and I see her. She's actually lovely at I. Know How hard she works it. The energy is a little different. Once you've done. Their job had Yeah, so I. I feel for you, but it's a good thing. The tweets I would've taken back to. It's a good thing. I was able to delete all my tweets about Jane before we started working together. That wouldn't have been good if she would have thought that now I'm curious about and this speaking of Dak. Prescott you know he's about to get paid. As one of the highest payed quarterbacks in the NFL, I'm sure you don't have any illusions of what your job is when you're walking in which you're walking in here to to be the backup quarterback and potentially somebody that they can groom to maybe be more down the line What do you view as your responsibility walking in the door as somebody who's competing for that number two spot behind Dak Prescott. Yeah. I think the biggest thing for me. Is You know from from Day One? The I stepped in there I've I've got to be the same guy that I've been the last seven years, and whether that's now pushed acts starting job or just compete to make the team I'm GonNa do whatever it takes. I've always been kind of one of those team. I guys so not not gonNA. Try To overstep. Overstep any boundaries, and you know DAX starter, and he has been for the last few years, and you know obviously deservingly he's. He's about to get paid for what you want. He's done field the last few years, so the biggest thing for me is you know I'm just GonNa try to come in and learn as much as I can from him. He was in a similar situation to me as Being a fourth graphic obviously not. Not In the seventh round, but very similar playing styles in similar situation so being able to kind of pick his brain a little bit and just. Absorb as much information as possible as soon as I walk in the door. I think that will not done official for me. What I think is intriguing to Ben is with the Mike McCarthy regime were just as new as dealing with him. You're going to be But he talked to head of the draft to the importance of having a backup that because Dallas. They've sort of struggled with having guys that are that they developed enough that they consider them. Valuable Trade Pieces A. Moving down the line meaning, you're going to get some meaningful Reps. Jeff feel like Dallas was at sort of an ideal situation for you given some of the places you can go as backup sort of get lost in the mix. Sure I think no doubt the coach. McCarthy's track record speaks for himself. With Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay and I think no Mass Lynn was a seven from he had in Green Bay to and he had a. he had a pretty good no career. I think what he was in the League nine or ten years so just the guys these worked with before, and after being drafted into some of the other teams churches at had. been interested in too, and said you know dude. You couldn't have ended up in a better place with coach McCarthy and touch Nas Meyer so they just sitting there calling for me and just stay in touch because you never know kind of how this thing goes in the NFL, so extremely excited to get to work with touch McCartan that he brings to the table in terms of getting to go and work with coach, McCarthy and working with the rest of the team. Do you have an idea of what that supposed to look like yet? With with some of these covert restrictions still in place do you know? I guess what's the next step for you in this process of trying to get to work and then get prepared for the season. You know I don't. Know my coach smart text me last night and said Hey, you know I'm GonNa. Give you a rain tomorrow and I'll have. We've kind of been laying out a rough schedule, but I think somebody's virtual meetings are supposed to start next week so. They sent me a an IPAD as the playbook, and some of this stuff already preloaded into it so I think you know I'm in the same position as these guys are. No one really knows how to react and adapt to this thing so I think. Their their plan. Is You know we're just GONNA say the same week by week and as soon as we hear anything else you know will relay information as soon as we can. You guys what I think is interesting to for you. Ben is a lot of these guys on offense coming into a new situation with the exception. You know doc wasn't in the virtual chats last week by all accounts. Even though that wasn't officially confirmed this offense literally house a week on you. They started last. Monday and they're learning the terminology and this new offense. Since there's been a change, so do you think that helps you a little bit because I know? Dat could talk a little bit about. This really applies to any player when they come from college to the NFL. There's so much information It's really gonNA rely on you to be a self starter you one of those guys are sort of embracing this challenge. Yes, so it's actually pretty interesting about all. This is my five years in college. I've had five different offense coordinator so. Every every spring I was getting used to the plan of Hey, you know I've got a new coach in I've got an another quarterback competition, so I've been part of five different playbook Kinda had to had to learn on my feet quick in those five years, so been around a lot of ball and. Had A lot of different coaches I think that's one of the things that will plan in advantages I going here, but Kinda know the fact that everyone comes in on Ground Zero. Could be a new offense I think it just it helps me and I'll try to get back up to speed as quick as I can. You know you did mention that you came from You know you didn't come from a powerhouse program necessarily but. People would be wrong to say that. You've never played big time football. You actually did start your career. Pittsburgh played some power five ball there. How much do you think your entire college experience? Not just what happened to James Madison, but your entire college experience starting at Pittsburgh and then going to James Madison and help prepare you and get you ready. Yeah, I tell people all the time. If I had to do it over, I'd do it the exact same way. Jamie was actually the second school that offered me out of high school and I considered go in there straight out of high school, but one thing led to another. Came in and offer before signing into is one of those things. Was Twenty minutes from my house with our football in. Just the idea that my parents in community come see me whenever I I couldn't pass that up, but. You'll get into to start six games. My redshirt sophomore year and I think played in ten out of twelve so. That that was invaluable. Experience for me is really the first time that I'd stepped on a college football, field and Just being able to carry that confidence in my junior and senior years jam. Thanks really helped me a lot. My develop supplier. All right. This is just one of the questions I'm curious about when Tony came down here. He was really kind of ahead of entourage. He lived in a in a in a crib with a bunch of his friends from college. You are used to being close to home. We saw the spread that you had a for your watch forty. Are You bring in a bunch? Bunch of buddies down here so you feel a little bit more subtle than adjusted I'm not going to bring any buddies that one of the things that's actually comforting as One of my players at Defensive End Rondo card from Jayme, you signed as an undrafted free agents douses while also having him down there with make the transition a little bit more little easy. In my girlfriend's actually from Austin, which is only a few hours from Dallas, so been down there a few times in the summer, and then our championship game was in. Frisco actually stayed at the Omni in. The Star and do all that good stuff so kind of crazy. How this thing on it comes full circle in a few months, and it's literally a I went to ut I. gotTA. Tell You ben Austin is a great place to go get away. Have Fun on the lakes. We have lakes around here, too, but it is nice to be able to be closed at least to go get a family meal lots of. Lots of hippies and Austin though just be ready I'm just looking forward to having some Sun. It's like. Five degrees and rainy every day up here in Pittsburgh, so it's getting every once in a while. This great right now. Blue Skies, eighty degrees I mean it's GonNa. Get Hot, but you know. It's. It's great right now. Well new.

Neville, gallimore. You can follow him on twitter at path to great work, and that's the number two never how you doing. I'm doing well doing doing great and I. It's a little bit of an interesting situation. He's onto the cowboys. Because I know that you were able to train right next door to that facility for for several weeks. You're working out at the Baylor Scott and white sports performance center at star. You know. Did you ever imagine that you'd be ended up just a half a block down from there. I've been imagine you know I I, always honey like. Really crazy, you know things work out because. I I remember just go back your for five months ago People Askar. As as as he could live anywhere where you live, and I said well I go. Not, only to the areas. Like a Frisk Warier, just love the environment. You know where I was training. I was literally at the Star and you fast forward. A couple of days ago. The Dallas cowboys given an opportunity so. A great deal. It was a great situation house. Was Unbelievable who would've thought. It s funny. Bobby I were at that facility and I remember hearing your name relief for the first time because we were interviewing Dez Bryant about his comeback. Did you get a sense of how big this star is by just seeing the interest? Even when Dez Bryant was working out there and he's now two year two years removed from that team. It just goes to show Nolan this. Even just a couple of guys Bosnian balances. Team WanNa play for your dowse is a team that you you know just? The the whole organization they do a great job Cheddar blazing. Just falling out here right, so I mean. In want to be a part of that, and it's literally like. I said I just. Grown really fond of this area displacing. Is Funny is even just going through the price that man I don't know. Monument. Kinda like I'm not really only WANNA move and stuff like that. I kind of got accustomed to this place already. I only been four five months for the fact that have backup, leave and then. Literally you know when I got my name called I was actually in Dallas of downtown Dallas I'm like okay. Great like we're home is just a thirty minute drive so I'm here. I'm pretty much here, I. Don't have to go anywhere, so that was that was great I was excited. So I I know that a lot of guys walk into situations with the cowboys and. It's a little bit. You know this is far from home, and this is This is going to be a whole experience. It's kind of like you know. I stay at a new school, and and you don't really know anybody. That's not quite the case for you. You've got you know. You've already been trading in Frisco like we talked about. CD Lamb the your team. Mate from Oklahoma was the first round pick. I know you've been training with the Darius Hamilton. There and he got signed by the cowboys, and of course I know one guy who's really excited to have a fellow Canadian. Now get it get snatched up by the Cowboys Defensive Lineman Tyrone Crawford so does it feel a little bit? T like you know. Hey, this is already kind of a familiar spot for me. Definitely because like I said even before, I used to come out to like. To dfw Area A lot just going to not just do out. You know since college, my best friend. Kenneth Man he's from. He's from. You know forward, so I've kind of kind of got accustomed, you know. I was Kinda. You know. Kind of really informed about the tradition and then. It's very. Very quickly. Understand when you come to. Dallas majority of people have Dallas fans. They ride hard you know for. Dallas fans and it's funny because you don't know stories few days before the draft I remember getting my. Car Wash and the Laos working there. She asked me she a hey. I don't mean to. You know to. Nose, but are you. A dollar deployed dies. Cowboys is like. Towers like no, no, I'm just kind of going through the drought process. They okay. And then. You, know as I'm a Dallas Cowboy Gibson find. You find her. You gotta go back and get her something. Side you you. You tipped you. Call the you spoke. She brought she did. She spoke into existence where you novel. I? Feel like a lot of people. My brothers, my brothers sisters, my brother's wife, my sister in law. She's actually Dallas. Cowboy Fan for and her family for the longest thinking back right now as Long as I've known her and I probably know this is the six seventh grade or whatever so. There's a lot of people that actually spoken into, but not definitely I'm trying to. Get a car after. Lying action I am. All right so speaking to like as you already know the fan base. People were so excited about this draft this year. How many twitter and instagram followers that you pick up the minute? Your name got an because look. I went to Texas so I'm I'm I'm having a hard time with the cd-rom pickup and obviously the? Cover the LONGHORNS. I I did notice I. Am sort of wearing the sort of. Right now you got. It looks like you've got on. The. Crimson, but there is such a familiarity with the Texas. Oh, you players here in the state of Texas. How many fans that you pick up when it was announced? You're GonNa have that star on your helmet. Out. Jumped pretty quickly if they. Before literally like before I got my name called. Probably. Twelve K like a hard-fought Twelve K. I literally. You know two days later. Must Stop his like thirty four thousand. You know. Just heads up. It's just gonNA. Keep on going. Yeah, yeah, no doubt who don't you saw like? We said you saw Dez Bryant working out there. It used to be kind of a joke on social media. There was a time I don't know if it's still the case, but there was a time where Dez Bryant had more followers on twitter than any of the other three teams in the NFC east, so he had more than the Redskins, the eagles, and then the giants did on their own. But we mentioned there. You did work out at the sports performance center at the Star I know one of the guys who got to work with, and then was helping you train ahead of the draft was Jenkins. Who is the kind of legendary defensive line coach What do you think you learned from him? And how well he helped you prepare for this rookie season. I mean I I gotta give shot of the Coast Pj. Because again, he he really just you know, prepare me obviously overcoming a better defensive line, but just you know many you know he's a guy that is been in the game. For so long, yes, so much respect for. The fact that I you able to have access you not guy like that on a daily basis. Definitely, helped me out and you may. He made the process. I mean not say it was fun altogether, but again he just. Understand. You know what to expect like the my same mentality. You have to have your coordinator. Those good to have. You know when you talk about some of the guy's playing on the line with. I think of demarcus Lawrence and I think of a guy like tyrone Crawford. who had Marcus Lawrence riding his bike with them to the facility everyday? Tyrone is a grinder and if he sees you talking to the media too much, tyrone's get a grab you and hold you accountable. That's just through he is. The elder statement, one of my favorite guys on that team I've known him since he was a rookie, but have you heard from any of those guys than even the prospect of the possibility of a guy like Randy, Gregory and Alden Smith coming back. So you know I had to play tire cops. He gave me a shot on twitter. Let me know he's happy to be A. Part of the program I germ McCoy. A former sooner you know, big burly. He gave me a shot which was a love to. Not Again I'm. I feel like this kind of social media. Kinda comes with your you know like I said I'm just GONNA play my role, but I'm actually. I'm hoping. That the you know this pandemic. Calms down because he like I said. I was really looking forward to colleges just. Jumping into get him back to you know football, so this stuff is Kinda. I feel like literally. Find a way to get it in get. Training get acclimated stuff, but it's like at the same time. It's like you know. I feel like social media. Is if not now more than ever the primary? Resource Verdy know. Everything I'm not really like a big old social media Guy Bud. Alright. Neville you were a guy I know? The cowboys had a really high grade on higher than than you went. They viewed you. As you know a a second, potentially late round I type of player. There was a lot of buzz. From Tom Pella, sorrow and Daniel Jeremiah that you know never. Gallimore is a guy who could sneak into the back end of the first round here. Teams really like him, and then you last all the way to eighty two. You know middle of the third round. Did you feel I disrespected by that. Did you feel like people were giving you enough credit for the type of career? You had it Oklahoma and the type of player that you are. I mean. This. Like I? Said everything was reason. I could I mean. Whether I'll be whether out of been. You know upset our side. You know when the change anything you know at a day I'm just really more grateful finding that got an opportunity. You know a lot, a lot of people I guess. A lot of people are Kinda. Look his you know. Hey, no, you should have got drafted. You know away earlier, but at the same time you know still in. A great position to still you know. Do great things right so again. I'm just looking for that opportunity to. Earn everything you know experience, and I'm the kind of guy like I said. I don't really. Dwell on. What people say is more so actually, but again I'm just grateful for the fact that. The Dow's Kabul shows you couldn't have been a greater situation to be honest. I, mean I try I. Try my best not to really look Cadet in the past. Obviously, but it happens I'm here in Abu Tulips. You know to to earn a star home. And such an interesting opportunity we were talking about this. All of you guys are sort of starting off on on the same level in other words is going to be a new defense with Mike. No one in his group agreed. You've got a guy like Leon Lett back, but they're getting the playbook. They got their virtual story last week. G Like having a little bit of that advantage sort. Sort of being able to start off sort of ground zero with everybody else in I'm also curious. How are you keeping? Yourself engaged in look I'm doing my online workouts. Man I like to be in the gym three four days a week. It is it is a little bit of a challenge, but defined that you're getting in a in a sweet spot, a little bit of a groove right now. I mean like you really don't know because like. I said everything is. Pretty much closed down from football perspective, but like I said I'm trying to make the most of a mind returning telling me no training outside. And just do a chance because I could say you. You really don't know right obviously. As, we continue to progress. Are More more information. Is Still? The you know the organization doing a great job in terms of still trying to find ways us to. You know. Get adjusted, but obviously with this pandemic you know. Going on still you know I was cedeno hindering the process, but in we take it day by day well novel gala more the newest one of the newest Dallas cowboys their third round I'll tell you what Jane I'm really looking forward to the The training camp battle knowing that a Texas longhorn Connor Williams is on the inside now, so never will be one.

We'll figure it out he he gets a lot of pressure from a lot of people I think that that's I think that'd be a popular move if we dog piled on on him a little. Little bit more Dorsey as a grinder. This guy walks to work every day. He goes, and he's like Meditation Hut. He's gotTa respect. The grinders clay so like I feel like he's going to respect your hustle. He's GonNa. He's GonNa. Give me your twitter account back. L. In the funny thing about like you know I had somebody who's like John Dula research for me and like E and. Stuff when not because I've never received the email. You know typically there in your email. I got one. Looked at not I know. I, never received emails. As somebody WHO's the prompts. One and I apologize to him I mean because. I'm not I'm not into like I'm not trying to be like no like tiring. Go against the grain. I'm not. I'm not I'm not that. What I didn't receive, Nabet so. Hats report. Clan. Hashtag Free Clay Mac now. If you're not familiar with Klay would, you should be. Clay trained several defensive backs across the NFL I think most notably the the cowboys crush Jamal Adams He. He's worked with Jim Olson sixth. Grade Jeff Okuda. Who just went third overall. I believe actually saw you on ESPN hugging Jeff after he was picked by the Lions. And of course, worked with Byron. Jones really helped get Byron cleaned up when he made the move to corner did a lot to help him. Somebody that Byron trusted so much that actually had klay come out to California. Remember bumping into your training camp last year when I saw you walk across the field, and it was Byron was there in your door and I know. Know you also work with to the cowboys. New draft picks Reggie Robinson from Tulsa and Trayvon digs from Alabama before jump to those like guess, just tell us. How do you get into this? Because a lot of people I? Think wonder like you know how to somebody become a clay Mac or a d. rob or anybody like that. How did you get into this? I was actually a coping America for. Full end. Up Sitting at my desk officer of countrywide loans. and. Got Phone call from hostile coach. James Jones I went to come Campbell high school so. Phone wrong and he wanted me to come out because I was a college. Og Merrick's May hostile so wanna come out and just just GonNa look at his defense bets so I did. And thought it was going to be at thirty forty five minutes, so ended up, being at the two two and a half hours and went back. The next day went back the next day in. Like for me. The thing that struck me was that it was a I live in Carrolton Kimmel Lozano cliffs hour drive for me. So I don't know what it was as some kind of intuition more. I don't know what it was, but I I became addicted to it. Don't sound so and the rings and I. Think Because you know sometimes these kids you know. They not privy to some things that Gaza are attributed to as relates to advanced schematics. Another chance to work on your skillset fundamental things that you need to prepare yourself for the next level on the next level. So when I was able to come back the stuff that I learned I was eager at that particular point like trying to teach the younger gods, what I'm saying, so just got a discount on materialized scenario then buffed to to to be rob which Amid his one family members are play college ball together. And it pretty much just started from there, so is it was maybe Robin getting margin hosts? We've started altogether. At Saint Louis Group and then from there. I just got infectious in just goofing. And so many guys is bobby reference. Come to you guys I. WanNa put something to bed. Because as you can imagine, my twitter mentions I know bobbies. They get so excited about this notion of Jamal Adams coming to Dallas. Cowboys in good faith try to get him last year. It didn't work out. Does this feel like an oral Thomas Situation for you for the cowboy fans in other words. Even if the cowboys had for, they're gonNA, still have to pay this guy a top market value. Was it ever a real possibility? And funny, you say that that was that was my logic by you know okay. Even they got, and they have the. Sam So. Is it working from a business? Perspective is just get him just halls those. Beautiful Smile Stanford your. Fan Base around up in line, and then you have to ship them all four. You know you can't come to an agreement saying from wise but when actually you know, that was his market that he loves I mean he acts absolutely loves a Dallas and out there and you know actually. I have a very intimate relationship immunised family and been not to new kind of Belabor. The point per se but. It was a lot of excitement around that. I just opted lot exciting around that. Contained excitement because you know naturally, you want to respect his stern organization. Would not it if it would happen? What my God. Fans would have loved in Klay. Just a personal story. as bobby likes to point out my bourgeoisie shows I'm a big fan of. Can Sam's where I did. My Dad's Bryant sit down when he got. She's very boozy, Berry. Bucci and it was during the CONOR McGregor fight recently I had asked to get a table and one of my sections, and I was told Jamal Adams had the table, and they said you know if you don't mind like coming early and leading Jamal is bringing some friends and he's GonNa. Come sit down. So we stayed for the fight and I said Jamal. I'm happy to give. My temple is like no, you good girl like any sat at like this other table with friends I was like what a great dude, but it just sorta spoke to guys come in. They'll bump you from their table like just a down to Earth. Cool Dude I would've loved him in Dallas. I hated what like getting that for a lot of people, but unfortunately I just didn't see the cowboys given their current situation being able to give up much especially when you saw what they were able to do with the draft picks this year. That's the kind of piggyback on that notion about the whole table Mileti you know. You have a more conscious about the high heat presents itself, you know I think a lot of that is up rooted family as well His mom is really big stickler about image and things. Even coming through high school in Lsu and things of that sort. You know D'Amato was like this. Okay, so you know the tip of hostile here, especially with number one kid in the country, he'll you know top rated as he were whatever the case might be. You really really want to be visible community and watch whatever the case may be Jamaa by go to a hospital party or something like that at nine thirty or whatever it might be what he might be back at home at you. Because it's a slide out the party I'm saying be back. Home Blake call them eight. For you where you at all those type of deal whatnot, but it made sense you know once know they go in watching workout watches workout. You know saying not telling you around the time the the song of his junior. You're going to a single year. We worked out in the summer fifty two days in a row at five thirty in the morning. Two days in a row at five thirty in the morning in this before the hostile workout, so you gotTa Huskies after reported the morning times, and not get to schoolwork at the end now really worked out before the school works out. You don't saying so millie. He's been appropriate. You not tell the fans is clay. Getting into. Can't handle this. They're gonNA. They'RE GONNA fall in love even more, but we. We got a couple of guys. They can fall in love with that. I know that you think highly of the cowboys thought highly of Trayvon digs. Being the first one guy who actually played receiver for the start of his career has not actually been playing corner very long. I guess talk about his ceiling. And also how far away from being a finished product? You think he has given that he's still relatively new to the position. What the in relation to the to the finished product deal. You don't actually any rookie covetously. Learning Center say no matter how advanced you are. You know you don't see the type of talent at you. Do in this league on this level of that. You're GonNa College head. So you know granite that. Go against you know a couple of first rounders Jerry Judean. Rugs in Devante will be a first rather next Alabama along with. Other kids seventeen, also, he was fortunate in that case but you know he have all the intent was i. mean he everything that you need if this is the twitch an NSF? I think that's the whole misnoma about you know. Bigger is also is that bigger? Gossip is not twitch. Not. You know I tell guys there. If, you're a big guy. Is You that you move pretty good to be a big until guys considered an insult. You know because they don't tell all guys that you move whale smoke. Don't saying so one of the things that we worked on with with Roy Long because I've been training while, mean you. You're naturally. He's hearing I've had draft process, but I had in prior to that as well. So the one thing that I've always worked on Williams that you know. Don't don't allow a statement like you move pretty good to be a big. Aw, don't sanitize insult. We've always worked on his twitch, though says does a-plus. The biggest thing I think is a plus is his skills. His boss gears is off the charts when I say off the charts all the choice and I think that's that's up. Now record of the like you say you do have a receiver background You don't actually you know. He's a younger brother. Stefan dates, or what have you, but I think those are some of the attributes data hit him while he tried to cut through that learning. Guy but as far as his civil. He touched signal. Because you don't have been playing DB about two years now, not member not last year, but the your product hurt Yep goes. If he didn't play for season, saying so so he's really really just kind of give his groove. You don't say what have you so. That's one thing that I'm going to do is that? We're GONNA. Sit Down and we're going to buy your way. Somebody's old film as much DB began. Dan Up and I'M GONNA act like you know really I don't i. don't know him per se. You don't say I'm be really really critical a lot of things with not so we can. Again try to speed them up a little bit. Those and and hopefully skiing allowed him to just kind of be distinctive for awhile. Don't and as he get his football lot. From from the front professional saying so we can grow and develop Stanford Apple you know I think the more complicated schemes I think that was slows Lana. GUYS DOWN! You know him personally and I I've only had a few passing moments with him as we lead up to the draft. And after he got picked, what stood out to me about him was. Obviously, talking about his childhood and the fact that Stefan stepped up as a father figure. But, also just his his work ethic, he was asked. What are his strengths and he didn't wanNA focus on that. He wanted to focus on his weaknesses. So you talk about being very critical with him when you evaluate the tape, is he the type of guy that can handle that stuff? And this is one of those sponges that receives that criticism well and wants to improve. absolut absolutely you know even though you know I. Wish is a little bit but the thing about it is that he don't react you don't get a reaction. It, there's not Outta. Assad like getting his nerves is is not an at it. Just let's get it again, but I'll tell you. I'll tell you one of the unique things about it, not just just assessment of Communist Carrigan. Is High was raised, and now the things he went through is that. Go up through the drought process. Okay. With him. And they have certain days to train us. What I'm saying like guys like Mandy Robin. We go in. We have I think three days a week or whatever, but I was actually trying to Trayvon five or six days a week in Dallas, because he was in me by Oh. We're finished at twelve. What time cannot come one o'clock? You don't because my deal is when you get an athlete that wanted like that. You have to feed it. You have to feed him. You don't and especially by me. Be a hometown cowboy, I WANNA see in being successful tomorrow team. You know what I'm saying, so but the behold we didn't. Didn't know that he was coming here. No saying rotates funding about that. He mentioned that he niche it knows and so if you noticed when his interviews, he said You know it was a dream of mine. He said you know I talked about it. Don't say in just happen at a chain true will. He was alive, said we talked about. You know we were riding on days, I? Love I'll say. Dallas is the perfect balance is not too fast is not too slow. Offense lanes now don't get me wrong. A also have slowed lanes as well so you can kind of create your own balancing. Whatever your dispositions you could fit. You know what I'm saying you. You can find your sake. He said Yeah. See that he's Dowse, said Oh okay, and we just let it go. We left. And when he got it, he takes me. And because he hadn't came across screen yet, so he takes me. And he said let's get the work. Input a big stalling. Install clicking. In my upstairs, TV is YouTube GD dancers TV spectrum, so one of them is limited faster than. You ran downstairs. Read also got. Have lost so I ran downstairs real quick in turtle stones. I turned it on. It was showing his highlights on off. Absolutely flips. That's my. That's my. And when we talk about you know the type of character Jamal Adams has and the type of person he is I. Think Sometimes people have the impression that guys who are stars that are coming out of big schools like a Trayvon Alabama that expect a big ego or something like that. In my experience, the two three times I've I've dealt with Trayvon it's been. Very humble very quiet. He's very softspoken. Kind of reminds me of Jane and I always talk about how smart and quiet. Amari Cooper is another former Alabama guy and trayvon's kind of the same way on the defensive accent, just quiet, and and you know, but but but don't mistake that for a lack of competitiveness or a lack of edge bass. He's got it. Exactly he in funding. We talked about that and not to bring up somebody from another team, but whatever just might be. On his don't rap process. I told one time in our trading session. I said you need to be trayvon. They've really he's a typical guy. This spill. Jefferson to say in fact, I had to get on Jeff about. Office media obligations getting on the NFL network getting on ESPN exist or whatnot where he just not like you know he's locked in a a attention monger per se, you say he's just not that which on the same way? He can, he can live with it. He can live with that you what I'm saying just Kinda just by his own way and so once they met. Jeff calling me you finally. Military I said it's okay, so what happens there I love him? There's really i. said I, told you this out dispositions, or so, what I'm saying, so yeah, I I definitely goes on what you're talking about. As they suit, you know he's he's not a ego. He's not that but I think also of Desa. You can attribute that also to the fact that just like you said about how his brother raised him. Don't Jan was their father figure with his brother? Also get an excellent job making trayvon worked for what he got. Everybody another contract that his brother has said so his brothers rich. But he didn't approach like it. He, didn't he didn't SPA Trayvon, but he made sure trayvon been won't for nothing. You don't saying but TRAE. Mama College driving around in big benzes, and in Deji wagons all off. It wasn't that he made. He actually made on. Appreciate you know. Stand up the whole workings GonNa. Take them to get to where he's gone. So that's one thing that I. appreciate it Bye Bridge, man I appreciate Stefan so much I've always been a fan of his when I, even what I do. Do some Minnesota Games, but I mean even after all this before. We let you go clay because you've worked with Jones and Mike McCarthy is finally said this is going to be a four three defense with some three four principles. What do you think Dallas is still lacking at that quarterback position? there really hasn't been a shutdown corner per se in Dallas in in quite some time up. What do you think that they need in order to be effective there at that position? You know what I only would like. Personally deal to be honest. Update I think it's affected. You got. The League is though kind of trying to do what they can do. Saying so good example you know I, trained street okay trains. Trains trains. You know cave on Fraser's some other guys as well. But the thing about it, what I noticed that off season, even like we was going to a certain techniques and things of that sort what the only allow to take! Those saying so you don't actually you know. Other People Watch as well what I'm saying, so you know it's like a one day. We came training session and Tito was like. Hey, look, you know I need to know how to know counter some that releases that Mark Lupus give. A practice and I said okay. What kind of kind of Project Knicks you guys? You showed me I said okay well. I'll do this. He said well. We can't necessarily do that. Will you have a disadvantage because it's owner, somebody see that you know from a fountain perspective that this is only what you're doing. They're gonNA. Figure you out and he's going to be a problem. You don't not so, which exactly so it was a. it was a unique just for those who don't know. That's a unique Pete Carroll, Chris Rashard Gus Brantley created technique. It's called a kick step and it's it's very much about letting receiver guide you and so just for the to give the name of they call it the kick step. Your. Bed with the kids. Go you know it? Kinda keeps you. Keeps you stationary. A little bit You've got to keep them on on. Somebody's coming at you, but you starting the place per se, they don't have to receiver I'll have to run it. Saying. They try they can go around. You can move your nose. Saying they can go. They can go right. It was a D. V. D.. You don't say owner on a wide release wide released. Would not? He's GonNa Talk. A HE GONNA end in their. Take me okay. You can't go into in my opinion. You can't go into a game or cover somebody. Let's just say like somebody. Doctor releases like Amari Judy in Kaleo in Ridley in. Guys like that, you have to have multiple ways to attack those dots. So you know if they allow. Those guys don't have to have multiple ways to guys I think that'd be. Great athletes are absolutely fine, but you know you hold? I think that's the problem will so the? Man That's fascinating. Bobby I don't know if the fans thought about I'm certainly going to look at some tape now. As a result of that was I think that's fascinating clay. I always love talking to some of you guys. This is what you do, you marinate it you work with so many of the guys in the League and such a credit to you and even D. Rob with some of the wide receivers that. That you guys have I know. This is the time of year. You're typically pretty busy in an even more so doing this thing virtually. Thank you for jumping on. We'd certainly love to have you back on if you if he liked 'cause I know there's a lot of other guys WanNa talk about Jordan Lewis's development.

The father alert show podcast available now on the iheartradio APP on Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcast. All right like I said by all accounts, bobby. It felt like this was the sort of draft that the cowboys not only needed as a fan base of, but that Mike McCarthy needed as the new head coach I. Think what we saw was a lot of influence from McCarthy of, but also I know you gave them the profit. They deserved on twitter, but this scouting department of what they were able to accomplish in this one as well. They, they didn't excellent job. And then that was ever really good staff of Area Scouts National Scouts. Everybody knows we'll mcclay Steven Jones Jerry. Jones, but. Drew Fabien Edge Mitch lapointe Their National Scouts Lionel vitality their area scouts Ross when she in the West Klein Kubiak the Midwest. Brett MAXI IN THE MID STATE! Sam Garza Justin Study, Chris, Von, who I know, you know very well Longhorns, and they. They have some scouting assistants. There's well like Air Gallon. Botella Ferro and so they they've got a really strong scouting staff and I think you saw what they were able to do. No offense to any past regimes but I think you saw what the scouts were able to do when they didn't necessarily have Jason Gert or Rodman Elliott pounding on the table for their guy. You know I do think that was interesting. How much given the challenges that came with this draft? You know the cowboys. I don't know exactly how they were. Were able to get in the building. Dino, that answer I don't think they were able to any of their visitors in the building. They scheduled them. I, don't think actually able to get anybody at the facility though I know Nashville got ten in New Orleans got none in, and you know talking to some of my folks within the building at the with the cowboys. They just said that would force them to rely on the tape. You know, keep in mind these NFL. Coaches aren't watching the tape during the year. They're just as busy as we are. Focusing very myopically on the NFL in the season that when they're scouting their scouting tape from guys in the League or undrafted free agents that might still be out there, so I thought this was a unique opportunity for some of these scouts to really show some of the work that they've done, and then also the reliance at the cowboys have on their guys, yeah, Brian Broadus made the point on Dallas. COWBOYS DOT COM during the draft show said. said that his first draft with bill parcells when he was here parcells, just let them run it because bill new. I came in haven't been studying these guys like they have, so he went ahead and trusted the scouting staff, and then of course in two thousand four and onward bill was there the whole time, so bill started calling shots, but the very first year he was there. He really deferred to the scouts and I. Think maybe that'll change in the future with Mike McCarthy but I think that's another reason why McCarthy did. Did it to your point. Is that this is? He's had a lot on his plate. He was interviewing for jobs. He wasn't necessarily doing a whole bunch of college scouting, and this is something that the cowboys do year round. They start work in June. And they plow through all the way until the end of April with their draft work they get may off, and that's about it well, and you plow through a lot of this. Chew while I might be busy during the year focusing on the team and getting interesting nuggets as As it relates this season I. Don't think a lot of people realized bobby that this is a lot of the stuff that you do behind the scenes and I think as a result that's why we've had such an interest from fans with some of the relationship that you felt with these college players with some of their agents, and so I thank you for allowing this podcast to shine at a time I know that people wanted not only distraction. They wanted information so I, don't say enough that you are my, MVP. All the time all the time, but I really do appreciate some of the work that you've put it into.

The Ocho: Depth at defensive tackle?

"What would you do? If you found out your family had a dark secret legacy from Michigan and J.J. Abrams comes HBO's Newest Series lovecraft country a John Wall bending drama that blurs the line between science fiction and reality in one thousand, nine, hundred, fifty s Jim, Crow America, starring Jonathan Majors. Journey. Smell. Courtney B Vance and Michael. Kenneth Williams lovecraft country Air Sundays at nine pm on HBO and streaming on HBO Mannix. None of America. What a world welcome. To another episode of the Ocho Presentative Partnership as always SPF nations blogging the boys dot com. Arduous show me, of course, from VDB matter humble host on the Ocho it is Tuesday August twenty, fifth two, thousand and twenty. We hope all is well wherever you are. We hope you're happy safe healthy and. I hope you had a breakfast or dinner or a great lunch whenever you're listening to this. I. Hope last meal head was delightful. I had a sandwich for lunch on Monday. You ever just have a sandwich. Just sandwich nothing fancy sandwich ships in man it just hit hard and so I hope your your latest meal was delectable anywhere. So I'm recording this full disclosure on Monday at about five thirty PM central time, and there is no Earl Thomas News. Thomas News as it relates to the Dallas cowboys. Earl Thomas News really in general. We have lost the ability with the new head coach in place to be able to accurately predict what the Dallas cowboys are going to do. But I think we've always been able to predict a lot of things when it comes to the NFL, and I thought fo show by now that. Would have a new home I? Mean you consider that we are now Fourteen days away or six days excuse me away from the season opener between the candidates, Houston Houston Texans, and so time is of the essence especially when you factor in a covert protocols learning new playbook, a new scheme potentially wherever orlands up so. As of the time of this recording, there is no news obviously if there. Is a situation where there is news. Especially, if it is that kind of news, we will, of course, run and have emergency episode of the show as we always do. But for now, no Earl Thomas News to discuss although. We do have what Steven Jones said to disguise because anytime anybody associated with the Dallas Cowboys Brain Trust says anything it is of note, and we always by the way we'll have you covered it blog dot com your home for the latest and greatest in the world of America's team in right here on the block on the voice podcast. We no big deal to episodes every single day all the time make sure. You. Are covered from head to toe offense Dallas cowboys. Later on today, we will have a brand new episode of the seven five zero with myself in two time. Superbowl champion Tony Casillas. That's right. We bring you some rings here on the beat podcast but anyway, Steven Jones was on one zero, five, three the fan on Monday, and talked about a variety of things and the first thing I think we should hit on. What. He did not talk about Earl Thomas Mackenzie masterpiece and. He was asked you know Hey are there any defensive players out there? That you might have an interest in and Stephen, of, of course, kept it close to the vest? Well, let's just here with Steven Jones had to say on Monday on three the fan. Or are there any other exciting available defensive players that we might be able to pick up on the horizon? We'll just as we didn't talk about ever since until it was done that we found that works much better for us. So as I said, we're in it three, hundred, sixty, five days a year, and we're always looking to get better but it. Obviously, he's not very productive for us to talk about anything You know that we might be in the works on because it can only work against you. I want to be very clear here. Steven Jones is the MVP. Of The Dallas Cowboys The Dallas Cowboys and he's out here saying you know talking about it it's just a bad idea. We shouldn't be talking about this because doing that can really only hurt us. Hey. Wow. I think that's true. I think that is a good philosophy to have. It is true that we were all very surprised by the Everson Griffen thing which goes back to the point of we are no longer able to predict how the Dallas cowboys are going to operate. and. Kinda give Stephen Credit. And I gotTa give the Cowboys Credit for recognizing this truth that a lot of have known for a long time. It goes against the cowboy way in every way to to to really. I. Mean. There's keeping your cards close to the vest is one thing. But it's another thing to like build a fort around your cards. And that's I mean, maybe all do dramatic. What it does kind of feel like the Dallas cowboys are being a lot more than they have in years past which I think ultimately while we're all anxious to know what the cowboys are thinking. This is the way to Rome and that's a good thing. I think it is worth mentioning though by the way, the in his Monday morning press conference Michael McCarthy did note that he had spoken with will mcclay about the prospect of rural Thomas. So that is cool. That is interesting. We will see what happens there. Obviously, the cowboys did at Everson Griffen along the defensive line they lost Joe McCloy we've been there. We've discussed that I do WanNa talk about the defensive tackle depth. Especially because. There is some. Optimism in the air concerning Tristan Hill and I say that with all due respect because I want to be a great football player, I think you want to be a great football player. Obviously, a lot of people have a lot of questions about his game in his rookie season, etc.. He had his meeting with the media last week that. was very short and very different from a lot of players. But there is some hype building around Jefferson Hill, who by the way? I don't know if we covered this on the show did switch from. Jersey. Number Ninety seven gave it. Everson. Griffen and now wears number seventy two. Shot Travis Frederick. But. Just didn't hill obviously if if he could take the next step that would go a long way mitigating the loss of jail McCoy. And they're starting to be some some some hubs in pub-. John showed gross talking boys with Kelsey Charles yesterday and. Said Hey Tristan you know things are or okay you know and I think there's reason to believe and if you on the fence if you don't know how to feel about Chris. Sale, you listen to Stephen Jones game because Steven, Jones was asked later on in that same of you on the fan. About. About WHO's exciting? Who's looking good right now, and what do you know just an hill one of the answers I wanNA five, three, the fan. You know I know a lot of people. A lot of cowboys fans are concerned about the defense. Are there any other players at least early on you've been like, whoo look at him well, I put Lleyton in that same deal with Jalen. Obviously they had that. Kind of if you would the sophomore didn't quite play as well as they did the year before. But they've both come back and really making plays in have us really fired up both Layton and. And then you know the other one W- that is really which we need more than ever now but he's certainly answered the bell is Tristan. Hill has really shown up in practice and consistent and just doing a great job for. So you know sometimes it's just hard on rookies in the you know what they have to go through to get on the field summer summer are able to get it done and digested and. Do it but you know rod can give him some tough love and sometimes some players don't respond as well to the tough love I. Know He was in active some and you know was limited on on his playtime when he was active but boy, he has really come along and certainly with Gerald going down has really stepped into that role and so far has just been put one one really good practice after the other. The last few days. We've mentioned. Here on the OCHO and on the seven five. Oh. Tony I about the character attitude issues or concerns that Tristan Hill has had. To. This point is NFL career and Kinda here you could kind of hear Stephen Sort of touch on that talking about the the tough love that Rodman Elliot's showed him and how some players responded and some don't and. I think it goes saying we all hope that that is in the rear view mirror for Tristan. But Stephen is hyped Intel. Maybe he got you hyped I. Don't know but. I think you know you look at the cowboys defensive tackles and we know that they're going to carry for. Back when we did our roster predictions across Oliver shows on the network Tony and I kept four. Obviously we kept Joe McCoy no longer around the team that is kind of a very unique situation but we kept Joe. McCoy kept Ontario kept Neville Gallimore and I kept Hurston Hill I argued for that over towards my logic, my line of rationale, and again, everything that we have known sort of our logic line of rationale with regards to the cowboys very much different because things are not as predictable as they used to be as we've talked about but. My logic was that well, the cowboys aren't going to get rid of a player who's on the second year of a four year rookie contract when there's so much potential there the cheap labor, the youth of it all is going to win out over somebody like, Antoine, Woods Antoine Woods is obviously a player who has had some successes for the cowboys since joining the team a couple years ago and your four defensive tackles and we'll kind of expand on this in a second. Are Obviously now going to be done -Tario Antoine Woods Tristen, inhale, and Never Gilmore and anti-noise. Last sound clip I wanNA play was asked on Monday if he thinks he's overlooked and this is something that a lot of people argue a lot of people believe that he is underrated overlooked whatever you wanNA. College. I did not overlook him when we put together fifty three man roster I simply looked finances of it aren't that the cowboys would kind of lean that direction obviously, the factors are different but. I think he's overlooked. Here is what he has to stay on the subject courtesy of the Dallas Cowboys Youtube Channel. Absolutely. You know I'm very, very proud for play. And you know I'm a real honest with myself and I absolutely think overlooked a lot. Maybe it's because how came in NFL undrafted maybe because been practice cough a few years may because I had to work hard and earned everything from when I first got here from four string. So definitely, I like overload but. Not Use it as motivation and just keep motivating myself to actually like the fact that I'm look because it's just it feels a fire sign me and it pisses me off the keep going hard. You know keep proving everybody wrong and I see out there too. So yeah, keep no doubt. So, Antoine Woods feels overlooked and that's a fair argument certainly, and he's certainly going to have a prominent role on Dallas cowboys. Especially when you consider what they're working with the defensive tackle although. We're hearing so many different things coming out of the star and coming at a couch practices because look we know the four names tackle. Dante Poe Anton Woods Tristen Hill. Neville Gallimore and I WANNA talk about gallon morning second. I do think that if those were the names I, think the cowboys would be fine. However, we have heard that the cow was a really you know we we use the term five a lot on offense of line. It really does feel like the cowboys are going to use their best for our best three whatever you WANNA, call it on defense we've heard about. Alden Smith being used at nose tackle. We've heard about Everson. Griffen. Being used inside obviously we know the tyrone it has been used there before so I think that the the term or the name or the description or the Acronym associated with. Defensive. Tackle. Where the cowboys players on the depth chart is not going to be probably this ridge thing where your defensive tackle. So you're the only that play that position, etc. The cowboys are clearly going to use multiple looks, multiple fronts, and ultimately that's the most important thing. But they are true defensive tackles if you want to call it that I do think are okay and I do think are something that they can work. With but the fact that they are, I don't know if they feel like they have to adjust for that or if they just want to live and operate this way overall I hope that that's the case. But I, think they're cowboys defensive line is going to be fine but I think the state of the defensive line is too so interesting and how it associates what what's happening in the middle what's going on there It, it is really fascinating. The last thing I do want to touch on I mentioned gala i. saw a tweet chat to our friend finder show Marcus Mosier from the lockdown cowboys podcasts. Here the tweet there made a lot of sense really. We've heard so much about CD LAN- we've heard so much about trayvon digs. We're starting to hear about Bradley and I talking about the defensive line right and we've heard about plays they're making I think you the Prominent educated intelligent hopefully well, fed has mentioned listener you off the top of your head. You can think of a tweet or a clipper, a photo or a video or something you have seen a CD lamb bright. Okay. Got It. You can also think of the same thing when it comes to Trayvon Dick's right. Okay. Maybe you can't think of a video or a photo, but you can definitely think of a tweet you've seen that's hyping Bradley right okay. What have you seen have never more right I mean and to be clear training camp is very different. All right. It's not the same thing. So not every rep is public information etc. I think we'll. We'll learn a lot from the blue and white scrimmage and hopefully but. That qualifier is necessary. It's possible that things are happening and there's just so much happening. So much information to get out. It's just slipping through the cracks that is possible but we are not hearing things about Neville Gallimore and I'm not saying that means it's terrible and whatever. But. I thought that was a great tweet for Marcus and it's a great point to note that other things were coming up over that are instead of that or maybe in place of that who knows but just just file it away just file it away as we sit here now, what twenty six days away from the season opener so We will have some good tax but hey, we're GONNA have a brand new seven five.

The Ocho: Jersey numbers for drafted players

"No no what a world. Welcome to another episode of the. Oh Joe presented you in partnership as always at espionage blogging the boys dot com are Joe Chawla of course from DTB and from writer humble host onto the Ocho. We hope all is well wherever you are. We hope you're happy. Safe healthy practicing social distancing so we can get through these days much sooner rather than later and it is the second day of the week and from a football standpoint life is pretty good for the Dallas cowboys and You know the whole world on Monday showered the cowboys with love and affection. Because the cowboys they had basically the best draft of all time and being seriously here the cow was did have one of the better draft across the entire NFL. I think it's being widely recognized that the cowboys had just an insane amount of value at all of their selections. In fact I wrote about this And the NFL Daniel Jeremiah. Who's one of the best draft analysts in the game? He tweeted out respect on. Dj Putting things out on twitter dot com. His top value picks for every round right. Now these are the best values that came in each round. Patrick Queen by the way was the first one you know you know the point here is Dj Value. These players a lot higher than the ultimately went well the best value. The greatest value was cowboys edge. Russia Bradley Anaya. Dj Had Bradley ranked as his seventy fifth overall player. Bradley ultimately went. Pick one seventy nine to the DALLAS COWBOYS. That is a value of plus one. Oh four one zero four and there will be questions asked forever for every draft. Lots of players. How did this player fall? Bob La the point is always an incredible player. A top hundred value with almost the two hundredth overall pick says an awful lot about their patients and Emmy we keep saying it but they really deserve an incredible amount of credit for how they handled the NFL draft at a class. That they have put together the undrafted free agents that they hauled in if you want to see a list by the way of the cowboys. Udf as we have a full list full tracker available for you as always at blogging. The Boys Dot Com just head over to the site. You'll see it there. We also have some images out on social if you follow us on twitter instagram for you to see there as well but the cowboys kind of dominating right now and it's very very interesting to see and you know it's hard to find exactly where to attribute that to like we've talked about but Basically I think Mike McCarthy has the trust of just about every Dallas Cowboys Fan. Now this is very important. We're about to discuss all right. It's a critical imports. Actually on Monday. Most of the cowboys draft class had their Jersey numbers revealed. And this is always a fun thing to talk about and to discuss. We've kind of made an annual tradition to do this with the one and only bobby belt. That's right a friend of the show bobby was on as we discussed the Neville Gallimore pick just a few days ago. And so hit bobby upset. Hey let's talk some Jersey number. Zimbabwe had the time to do so. So that's exactly what we did. It's kind of a Jersey number discussion. Plus you know sort of a twist on analyzing the cowboys class at something that I think are really enjoy. By the way we have a brand new episode of girls talk and boys available for you and your podcast. You just go back. Just scroll back in your podcast feed.

That will be out later today on Tuesday and the good times they just They just keep on rolling here and so We appreciate you being a part of it. So let's go ahead and do it. Let's Toxin Jersey numbers. Bobby Belt joins US next right here on the agenda pleased to be joined by the internationally famous great friend of the show. You know him for his takes on Food Life Leisure and of course Dallas Cowboys Co host of the boys integral podcast of course producer fantasy network and a great friend of mine. Bobby belts. Robert goes at great takes on socks if anybody would like to ask about the if anybody like to ask me about socks. Have you ever had a pair of socks? I haven't when I was a kid that have like like on the bottom like I don't know what to call them but like I had them so I wouldn't slide around you know talking about. I think they were. I'm like Oh yeah yeah. Yeah The lady socks. I don't know if they're lady socks like again. I think they're lady socks. Yeah well they're they're meant to provide traction I I remember. I had like a space jam. Perrine is a key. Yeah career you're If you're a squirrel you need like the pads or even though like I mean that's gotten after really insulting start. I apologize like a squirrel. You mean like like an animal day ever have you ever been. Have you ever seen? Have you ever seen the movie over the hedge? I have not okay. There's a scene in there where Hammy the Squirrel. Who's played by Steve? Carell isn't able to get traction and it's because he's like all pads and they said used to use your nails or whatever and then he's able to get. Oh Yeah. The only squirrel like famous scrawl. I think of and like I've I enjoyed the cartoon as a kid. But obviously there's a different insinuation is chippendale like where they were squirrels right. I'm talking about Chippendales rescue injured. I loved doing Chris. Lewis Played One Anyway the dancer Star human-animal Right. So anyway bobby you were just here actually quarter for more crappy references like that on twitter. Bobby Belt TEAC. But Bobby you adjust here after we discussed the Neville Gallimore selection. So it's going to mimic and of course in talking about this subject at this. Is our Tuesday episode of the OCHO and on Monday? Most of the cowboys draft classes Jersey numbers were revealed. And this is something that you and I have actually done. Many podcasts about In our day and so you know. Tradition is tradition is and so and I'll be honest. I know a lot of you complain at us on twitter about it Frankly we don't care. This is a fun topic for us. And we know that there are some of you who do care so the reality is the Jersey numbers and it has to fit and it has to fit not just with the position they play but with the team they play four color schemes. It all has to work So there are five Jersey numbers at the time of our talking. That have leaked. Not Least I've been revealed and I have a favorite of the two thousand twenty dollars colleagues. Dr Press. The only ones that are not fully known at this time are CD. Lame and we can get into that and a little bit in. Bendon Uchi but as the other five. What is your favorite well? It'd be clear just to set it up for the audience Avon digs is wearing thirty. One Gal Seventy and Oklahoma defensive tackle seventy five by the way later on today on Tuesday you can hear a brand new episode of the Seven Five O. With Different Oklahoma defensive tackles seventy five. Twenty Reggie Repin. Terence Newman with forty-one Tyler. Sixty three I'm sure. Bobbi hesitate there and Bradley Anaya Fifty one so bobby. What's your favorite well and then we also have well. I guess I can add one more because I do know what. Bend new cheese number as like to know that. Look at that look at that. Just breaking news here okay. Trying to number one. Oh yes not not a great quarterback redfern or matic. Brian feels a little soon. Yeah okay. So let's go over the favorites so we have thirty one. Seventy five Forty one and todd. Nice the top three or nice. I don't have a problem with any of the top three. I have a small problem with thirty one. I don't feel like thirty. One is usually a corner number. I just maybe it's just from my Roy Williams upbringing. But I've always felt like thirty one was more of a safety and I didn't ever feel like fit Byron totally and I mean they play Byron Safety there for a little bit and so thirty one was roaming around back there again so I never got totally used to thirty one on a corner. I'm not the biggest fan of it. I honestly was kind of hoping with Twenty seven now abandoned by Jorge Luis agree that Trayvon digs would just add the two in front of his Jersey and Rock twenty seven. But that's not agreed. It's just not my favorite Seventy five your head while I was just going to say I like name. Name an elite corner that's had an talking NFL history. That's had any number in the thirties. And nothing joined us a matter of okay No Do you know who honestly trying to think it's pretty. Yeah I mean typically. I've always viewed to the twentieth. And then it's not a twenties. I actually like forties. That's what I'm saying like that's where I'm going with this. I think Reggie Robinson I'm a fan. I feel like the forties kind of went away for for awhile there. The early you know odd was all forties everybody like once upon a time. You had a cowboys. Secondary that feature Terence Newman and Anthony Henry. Rockin the four one four two. You know what I made so nice. It was but and then then that just when I always loved. This never fits anybody else to me. But I always loved Ryan McNeil in forty-seven I thought that actually looks. Nice on her. That can look okay but I I you know. I know it's been talked to about Reggie Robinson could play safety. If that's the case. Get Outta forty-one not a fan of ordinal no forty forty one of the corners number. I will say You know what's interesting to me and I'm certain nothing's tied to this but it's just an observation Thirty one do you know who immediately stands out to me that when I do think of a corner where thirty one. It's not Byron. You saying in cowboys history are in NFL history. When I think of a corner wearing thirty one In Tokyo commodity thirty one. No no I think of new cowboys. Cornerback coach Al Harris. Oh Wow wow. That's a great end fighting. Not Fighting by Texas am I not Texas in Gainesville have Alina Algiers. Look at that. Yeah so I I mean is it possible that maybe sort of like a nod. That's that's a great point. See People like to say that I think about stuff like this too much but you. This is a great point. And I'll I'll throw. Bobby had a take last year at training camp. You were the first one that noticed that evolved the numbers that were being assigned to different players. That twenty nine had been left that I was actually. There's two years ago That that had been left available table outside of the obvious ones like the AIDS and the drive Iran. One right and that was the point is that was during the Earl Thomas Extravaganza and may maybe it's a wink and a nod like hey we're We're we're having a game here. Okay so I like that. That's probably my favorite honestly is thirty one there again. I'm with you. Twenty S and forty s. Better corn numbers. But it. Just it fits and you know there are thirty. One is like the number thirty one deserves to be on every NFL team. You know what I mean and so if you're going to give it to somebody give it to somebody legitimate. I think digs fits that bill maybe and moving off from digs now which I like. I said I still wish it would would have been twenty seven But but moving off their looking at number seventy five on novel I am actually. I'm not usually fan of defensive. Lineman blind worrying numbers in the seventies for some weird reason. I was OK and always have been okay with number. Seventy two on Michael Bennett. It's just it kind of fits him and his cool. He is just Kinda like going to the beat of a different drum but the one number. That's an exception. Is I can tolerate seventy five on a defensive tackle like actually like it on a defensive tackle and never gallimore and so I. I think that's tight actually to what you referenced earlier. I think it was early coming up. And Remembering Seen Tony Casillas and Brandon. Noble wearing as tackles wearing seventy five. And so. I think that's where I've been shaped a little bit. But I think seventy five are really solid number Neville Gallimore to take out now. The only thing. I'm not curious I feel like he's maybe a little too stocky to wear the little wide of a seventy five but for now. I'm going to think positively and assume that it's GonNa look good this is client host of the client. Show podcast in two thousand. Fifteen is what he was most afraid of a pandemic respiratory flu. He told me we're living in his nightmare now so I had him back on the show to ask him. What has he learned. All of us need to learn. How far are we from a vaccine?

I just realized I know I T's we have. We would have an episode later today on Tuesday. That might be later in the week. Just programming Bob. You got to take care of Of the House right here. But I I like seventies on a defensive tackle. Personally I think fits and we have seen. We've had a run of bad defensive tackle numbers for the cowboys for a while now L I think this rumor fifty I is is why he retired in. The middle of the season is because he's like. This is mortifying to wear this number. I mean think about it like I was never really the number. Ninety seven has had a rough go okay. Let's let's just be clear for a second I think. The number six in Denver you know Jay Cutler and then Mark Sanchez like that was tough. You know what I mean for the number six then also number six. I believe with the number immediately after John. Elway when Bubby brister had to start for the broncos. That's a great point. So that's what I'm saying and ninety seven with the Cowboys Jason. Hatcher had a you know a nice little you know whatever. Terrell pitman around McLean Ninety seven. Just you know what? I mean And then you know obviously Taco and now Tristan Hill is just not not a good look. You know what I mean like. Avoid Ninety seven and I'm just I think I think ninety seven at Taco would have been a better player. I think ninety seven would have been a good look for him. Actually I spaghetti not liking the number one. No no no. No no no no no no you remember. I gave him props because it was literally only number in the nineties and I were suspected that he actually grabbed a number in the nineties. That's a great point you're right but I'm a fan of returning back to the seventy S. So good for Neville I like I like seventy five on Neville Gal more now. If he if there was every number was available to novel. Gallon where would you? What would you pick for him? I feel like weren't oh you ninety is a good look. I agree I think demarcus Lawrence first of all is bad ass enough to make almost any defensive end number work so like you know he's kind of immune to this conversation however I think that ninety is it. It's other things better like this. And if if all of a sudden you waved a magic wand and Democracy Lawrence was like ninety nine and Never Gama was ninety. You know what I mean. Yeah I mean none of them are I. Don't feel like whatever. Replace the image of Erica Vago. But I mean it's good plus I mean like we can't really give away ninety nine now after Jimmy Mincy. I mean put it in the Rafters. Talking about that was actually. That was actually a fantastic number. On Him. Honest. Ninety nine was great. I'm disagree with that. Okay we already talked about Reggie Robinson. But Bobby is a tough scene here. Sixty three on Tahiliani dude. No yeah this is not okay Because again I feel like seventies numbers that's like the offensive line except seventy five. You can set now. Obviously you'll get dummies. They're screaming go. Well what about you know this person or this for like the one? That always gets that for when you say what about. Bob Lilly two different. It's a different era and so where we are now in a modern society when we have indoor plumbing and things like that like I think that seventies should generally be the offensive lineman and generally speaking. I prefer although I know this is tough because there's so few acceptable linebacker numbers. I prefer tackled business. Then the guards in the sixties and then a fifty two or fifty on the center. I don't feel that exact same way but I can get down with that. See I think I think again again. A lot of my thoughts on this were shaped as a as a young guy and so seeing you know mark step Naski Clay Shiver for the cowboys wearing the low fifties at center. You know that we are the same age. So when you're like Oh. My experience was shaping the he realized but I but I have. I have a much stronger brain than you and I were called much more from my childhood so I feel like I live a richer life as a child. Okay but see. I think this take us fair. I don't think you know regardless of that. Sixty three is a guard. No one on the football field should work sixty three other guard. I agree with that I think. Calicoes are prototypical three for me but I will say. I blamed this on Connor Williams because we had a good thing. You know what I mean we. We had a really good thing. Where every offensive Lineman rockin numbers in the seventies and then Connor Williams had to go and where fifty two and now you remember. Why does fifty two? I do remember why he trusts fifty to you. I'm going to tell you. I know why I just was thinking. If you remember why you can tell the listeners. As anybody remember Connor Williams made a huge error in life and chose to experience his higher education at the University of Texas and the University of Texas. Obviously is in Austin Texas. The area code is five one two in Austin Texas Anti Trust fifty two because it was the closest possible thing to that which I guess he's saying like his body is the one I mean. He's so skinny. I didn't even think of it. That's that's a deeper level but I wonder if he did. I'm just I'm curious. I will say though fifty two the only I've always thought of fifty two is WanNa be perfect linebacker numbers but okay if a center uses it. Sometimes that's fair. It's it's tough because I I know that like the way numbers get used these days like. It's it's difficult. Because numbers in the sixties generally are GONNA be guards. But then you're kinda limiting yourself because you only get like a handful of guards and you have ten numbers there but you can't really give anybody else and that receivers started taking numbers in the teens. Like you know they all want to be keyshawn Johnson. And then you know it. Anarchy ensued then. There's no worse thing I think the. Nfl should absolutely ban the use of linebackers wearing numbers in the forties. That is blasphemous So I don't disagree with any of that again. This is this would be the worst number of the draft class. I'm Ben tune into and one is whatever but We were actually talking when our Buddy John? Mishota tweeted this out and so I broke the worst news to a number and again we've talked about how Stephen Pye Award fifty five that was a huge mistake Perhaps a different mistake of similar variety. We head to Monterey more than recently Robert Quinn. Where fifty eight. Just again Robert. Quinn managed to succeed in spite of that But Of Your accent wearing fifty six right. If you're if you're an edge rusher or any defensive lineman you just absolutely cannot wear a number in the fifty in young Bradley Bobby has chosen or at least been assigned number fifty one. Yuck now the the only thing that I'm trying to remember here. So Ninety is D- Law. Ninety one is L. P. Ninety two dorrance Armstrong Who's got ninety three right now? It was I believe it's been given out in fact I will double check while you while we say that ninety four still Randy Gregory now. He's released right now we could. I can't believe I forgot this ninety three Joe McCoy. Oh yeah yeah that's right. I forgot 'cause in the Ross had left and right then Gerald McCoy got ninety. Three Ninety four is Randy Gregory. Ninety five was Christian Covington. That's now Dante Repo correct Ninety six has been taken since. Jalen jokes took it because he was seventy four. Thank goodness Ninety although I don't know ninety six is rough. Ninety seven is Tristan Hill. Ninety eight is tyrone Crawford and then ninety nine now is who is theoretically Alden Smith but it it's it's listed for what it's worth on the cowboys website as belonging to exclusive rights free agent Antoine. Woods who is a whole and that's that's something that I was sitting there and I was wondering if Antoine Woods was on his way out. Yeah because I don't believe that's been Sylvia all the numbers in the nineties. I guess are taken up right now so I mean I understand that there's GonNa be a placeholder Similar interests and Hill was wearing the number in seventies last year. He was wearing seventy nine so okay. I get it like if it's a placeholder that's one thing but even if you're gonNA pick a placeholder watch fifty one that's just that's gross I mean I think the good news is no disrespect to Jalen jokes but probably won't be on the tape man roster so we can look like and we don't know though they liked him last year we don't but I mean you know he's. He's got a tougher road personally hoping not to be rude. I'm personally hoping that when they like. Thorns Armstrong though at the training camp. Bradley and I'll just take ninety to see again. That was kind of the point. I was getting like if either during or Jalen are gone. Those are both fantastic members that can be had and sometimes guys hoard a really great number all respect in the world at one point in time at least fighting Texas aggie. Jamir showers but he held onto twenty eight. And you know really kind of mess things up there for a little while. Yeah I don't feel like there's been near enough respect for the twenty eight Jersey Like I I think. The cowboys doesn't organization founded failed on that front. Since Darren Woodson let go. It's I mean I love Tyson Thompson. You know urban all the way but like really nobody should have. You shouldn't have had a scrub wearing twenty eight again. Notice respect intended to Jamila showers but so he's a nice guy you know what I'm saying. You Practice Squad guys picking up a twenty eight early. I think we would agree. Ranking these here from best to worst it is honestly maybe in draft order excluding Benvenuti again. are we going to turn the deadly refer to see lamb ten eighty? Well if you would allow the conversation to happen naturally bobby going to say is that digs the best thirty one. Gallimore is next bessette. Seventy-five Reggie Robinson. Fits at forty one. But the safety thing could complicate it again. Sixty three not ideal but it's better than Bradley wearing fifty one so that's the order of best to worst. Now I disagree. What is what's right. I think the best fit right now because I think he is going to play more corner. I think the best finish forty-one Robinson and I think actually that that it's seventy five gallon more and then it's thirty one digs so you're swapping the corners. Yeah unless you know I. It might bump up a little bit. It might be kind of cool if it was like Al Harris told. Trayvon digs like I want you to wear my thirty one point and then all of a sudden elevated Reggie Robinson with the dress with a long hair that would have been kind of cool to see running around thirty one so this is the last thing what and to be clear. Cd-rom sure whatever he wants to wear like. That's the ultimate in Michigan quarterbacks wearing ninety nine. There's some anyway For the purposes of this discussion ten eighty eight or obviously the directions that we have to go with year. What are your thoughts on? What do I? It's tough because I think that there's a mantle that should be held but like the guy right and like see lamb may not be maybe he becomes that but like I mean. There's a chance that if he's three years underscoring Amari Cooper still better receiver. I don't know if you're going to like try and make a legacy out of that if you you know. Let him wear that. It's like the third receiver that it's a weird set. Typically they've always given that the guys that are like you're next up in the legacy correct. That's what they hand over. Eighty eight ninety four with so I get it but at the same time. I don't like the number ten Dak Prescott original number. I don't like it as a receiver and I think that but but I will say this. We'll make this point and for all of you get on me like David. Hellman DALLAS COWBOYS DOT COM. I'm talking to you. We'll get on me for my screen rules about numbers on players and particularly high. I don't like the fascination with the teen digit receivers that started with keyshawn and then we really pushed by Fitzgerald and Roy Williams in the draft and I will say that I think I prefer all of the receivers wearing numbers of teams then having two guys on the teams and another in the eighties. I think clear uniform. Look especially if you've got tight end. Who's more in line wearing a number in the eighties? It's easier to differentiate everybody right. You look cool on on the sideline. Everyone's Kinda posted up on the bench. Like the shots of Amari Gallup and COBB last. You're great because they're all in that neck of the woods. I agree with you there. I all for medical purposes and I wouldn't normally endorse this but for medical purposes. Would it be any better if they were thirteen? Sixteen nineteen and like went up in increments. Now that wouldn't be good at all sixteen sixteen that would be. I mean ten is okay. I suppose but I just I don't know I like I'd like fifteen on TV. Lame I think I would like to see like I think I think of some like a small receiver with ten. You know what I mean. 'cause and maybe that's just risk take on ward and Ryan Switzer war like I just all the eighties. Numbers were open. What would you assign to Gallup Cooper and lamb if all the numbers are open than nine? Because that just makes sense at this point. Gallup Gallop is eighty one type dude but I would probably give him eighty four because it's a bit softer and eighty. Eighty one is dislike flashes. You know personality most and that sealant yeah see eighty one Eighty four just always think of Sean Jefferson so I feel always stands receiver wearing eighty four. For some reason. You Know Randy Moss or eighty four for forever I kinda wonder if eighty three isn't a good looks. Gallop Kinda more into like the Parents Williams Kelvin. Martin Bowl the Robin number. Certainly yeah. Yeah exactly and so yeah I think you can have like eighty nine which is to creating his own legacy taking us out of the era of David Leflore and then and given has come through Blake Jarmin's fixing that right now so it's whatever But I I do think that I think those are some pretty good choices. I could see I. It's been a while it feels like since we have like a really dynamic eighty bike. Alvin Harper wearing eighty was such a nice look like as the speed guy that I really wish they like. Start Breaking back. The eighty on the like one of their receivers okay. Well you didn't really answer the question. I think go ahead. What was the question again? Which is anywhere. Tanner Eighty eight. I if I'm I feel like I kind of answered when I first started if I had shoes I'd rather them all be on the team so in that case and also because he wouldn't be the no doubt number one guy eighty-eight should be. It should be ten even though I'm not super crazy about that number. I tall for ten. I know that's saying like I think he's physical enough to where eighty eight I do. Here's the problem again. It's it will be weird. Think about our history here with this organization it would be weird to see somebody wearing eighty eight and like not being the focal point of the office. I agree with I agree. I agree with that I mean I. I mean if if it's not going to be like I guess he fits the trajectory of eighty-eight but it just again I mean I don't know I guess I'll often I'll go ten. That's fine. Let's just do. I think I think ten between ten and I'm not thrilled with it but I'll go ten honestly though like I just wished to Nucci where nine and that's a great note to end on because bobby is is fantastic trump. Okay honestly the neutral. Shur trolls did Nutricia wear three Mike. Batt number needs some elevating and I mean like people thought Mike we could do that. He or like I watched him play the other day. I watch some tape. And he's like tough and he you know he's a bit of a scrambler and things like that so I don't know I was thinking like the I can see a number in the teens to make a good like five. You know what I mean like. Just a good five years like a Brooks Ballenger. Sort of I mean I personally like I. It's not available obviously right now but I. I liked watching his film and seeing him run around and six. It didn't look bad right. It was an okay. Look I might endure and it's not gonNA happen. I was cooped swearing in it but like I've always thought like nineteen wouldn't be bad for certain quarterbacks Scott Mitchell were that in Detroit and I came to go like okay I can. I can live with a quarterback rating that. Okay so again. Bobby will troll anything you love on twitter about about. Co Host The girls and a boy. Podcast the boys and a girl. Excuse me boy girl and girl. Gee I always diet. But I want to rewind it. I'm not gonNA okay fine.

Girls Talkin 'Boys: Progress! It happened!

"What's up guys kelce. Charles meg murry here. You are listening to girls. Talk in boys in partnership with us as always. Hello hey We actually have some good small victories. Hey listen. I said what i said last week when i was gonna make little victory monday thing and this feels like the most little victory monday. We've had in a minute. Thus i am happy to say. I was so wrong. Yes so wrong. This is the only time. I will ever claim to be wrong and i was wildly inaccurate in my depiction of how i thought this past weekend game was going to go down and yet ever tyler was right on point. I will say listen. I'm just thinking that You guys should have listened to him more. And i'm glad this podcast because committing these types of things. Megan i know He really did. He made a lot of good points. I went back and listen to everything he said on friday and i was like holy crap he really called that like they do play down to them and there's a lot of stuff that he brought up. I was like oh well. Guess he doesn't know what he's talking about. Probably a good thing that he knows that for his job good for him. He's a sports is a sports editor in such. So you know I yeah i so. We talked about this on the show and May or may not have made a bet with him a goal. So regarding a gr- regretting. I was like i was like. I don't even think the cowboys are gonna scored. Hush like not right. That was obviously a very aggressive. Bet but coming out of my poor judgment in how this whole entire game went down. I now have to go to pittsburgh. So i'm now oh it was already going so cool. Okay as we say. I just feel like i'm ninety buddy but apparently i now have to go to pittsburgh for drip vet that i made was i like. We agreed that they were gonna lose. But i got spotted two touchdowns so i won over the long lost. That's okay well. Let's talk about that for men because that's really in my opinion theme of today. I feel like the cowboys one. Even though they lost. And there's a couple reasons why i just i. There's there's coming out of that game to be able to hold the steelers and be winning against us. They had like a double digit lead for a big portion of the game. Relieving the steelers down until two fourteen left in the entire game the only undefeated team who is now eight for first time ever for them. I we were beating them for most of the game and we can talk all about how the steelers play down and you know. Big ben had a bit of his near the injury. But at the end of the day you have to give credit where credit's due and their several places in this cowboys organization. That deserve to celebrate today. I'm just saying if you stop counting. We would've won the game. There are a lot of illegal points from pennsylvania counting. Why have i never heard that impression before. It needs a lot of work. But i gave it to go. Yeah you're right. You're right well since they did start. Cowboys did lose. And they are now to seven but again. Let's celebrate the little victories. I gear gilbert. Man this guy. I feel lake travis. High school alum ut. He lost his job. That was a couple at. Ut couple years ago you know smu if we must yes well that was after forty one because it was. It was the mccoy and david ash situation. Where a bitch him for a quarterback by committee And then he came to smu and tonia up baby grad school and then he has a ring from the the patriots but i you know his stat lines and cooper rushes and literally every quarterback. The cowboys have Going into this. I was like this is our veteran. I'm scared i'm very scared gray. He played in af before that folded. And all of that but it just felt like we were going we re putting a man out there to see his final days and you know that was just not the case. That was not the case in listened. Gear. gilbert is by no means. i don't think going to be you know having a long tenure in the nfl. He hasn't played for two years. I think he was looking at coaching. Smu potentially before he went back and played but he showed up. There is a a a part in the game. And i have to look at their final lines. But we're just again based on stats alone He was he was looking better stat. Line wise than ben rothlisberger. So this is when the cowboys where it was nine hundred and nine right was fourteen of twenty one passing hundred. Forty six yards a touchdown hundred. I'm sorry wow words are hard two point five. Qbr and then ben had fifty and twenty one hundred thirteen yard touchdown and ninety nine point nine passer rating. So you know again. This was a moment in time but for that to even happen they had to be playing at least decent that game. I mean at the end. He he didn't end up You know he had a seventy two point six mainly because of that a passer rating because that that interception in the end zone. Which i have to say i do think you could potentially be a little questionable. I felt like amari was held. And you know there's people even talking about it was a blind side hit on him. I don't think you can fully put that a thousand percent on gilbert. But you know. I'm i mean. There are things that happened before that that like. We didn't even have to be in that situation. If you think about it but I think they did a good job of working around him in a like building him up. There is a lot of stuff that they did differently with him Behind the line. That i enjoyed seeing so i mean product to the coaching staff. Haven't really got to say that too much this year so credit card do kellen got creative like net. They did they did things differently. And i think that again. We've talked about before when you're in a position where you don't have your starting quarterback or even your fully serviceable veteran quarterback true veteran quarterback. I think you have to get creative in how you play. And i think that's exactly what this cowboys team did. This past weekend I just i was. I was impressed with creativity. I feel like some of the play calls. You were were good decisions. Even if they didn't fully you form an come in and follow through. I think the intention behind the game plan was what the press me. And i'm really. I'm this cowboys team. I hope they slept well last night. And i hope they wake up with a smile on their face this morning because that was the type of football that we need to be playing even when we are just wildly decimated like we are in the in the injuries inside yesterday. Despite everything positive from yesterday's game relatively speaking taliban adage he had i think he he strained his hamstring or hip strain his hamstring during their it is At the end of pregame warmups. There was some questions around Obviously he ended up playing. He had to pass a physical before the game so Happy he'd he will do that. But you trayvon digs. He was sidelined at the end with a foot injury and bless up for by week. Because i just. I was really sad about the dig situation obviously be outage but luckily we had looney. But that to me that touchdown at the end Where where save with that hurdle hurdled. I was like you know. I'm not saying that the same wouldn't happen for digs. But it just feels like digs while he still does give up plays. Obviously because he's a rookie. I still feel like he has that playmaker gene that maybe i don't know maybe you know what i mean like. Maybe he has playmaker gene. Yeah like it just it made you kind of think So i think it's good with the by week because they'll obviously get a prognosis on what that both those guys are dealing with and It they'll get a week to rest up which is perfect which is what we need but yeah relatively relatively speaking. I was happy with their performance. Not even relatively. I was really happy with their performance. Despite everything they dealt with so let's dive into a little bit more. And i'm sorry i have allergies this morning So you'll you'll just have to hear me claim. I i apologize. Hold please okay so from an offensive perspective. you know. This team really did a good job in my opinion spreading the ball around a yo dalton schultz. We can say all over again. But i just feel like you know. He's had he's he's done well and had good games. You know you saw running back by committee obviously zeke's carry more of the loads but tony pollard. Has good has a good long chunk plays which was good. I think in general. I was happy with how they service. They leveraged every single offensive player on the field. I mean you've got. Let's see justin receiving alone. One two three four five. Yeah eight different guys. Who were touching the football in that regard which yup that's great. That's that's what we need. I mean it just goes to show like we said earlier like they had a plan for your goal. We're going to game around eighty offense aside because again like we said like it's no it's you should be able to do something with the correct game plan with these weapons and with this offensive side of of the ball even when they do have some injuries you just. You should be able to do something with that like there's there's enough serviceable serviceable and really highly talented pieces. There to be able to pull something together right but what really got me. Man was the freaking defense. Like where the hell was that team. This defensive unit. I'm just saying when you put in my guy neville gallimore things popped off. That had himself a game. I just waiting i. And he's been a guy a lot of these guys. And i'll be frank with you rightfully so were being criticized because it just felt like i don't have another word right now i'm gonna use it. It felt like this defense was flaccid couple of weeks and i'm just like i air. She goes making more d jokes. Listen it's who. I am so too i am. If you it get out line but it it felt like there was energy for the first time in a long time and these guys were out here making plays. I mean you saw like you said neville gal maher who was pressuring the interior part of that line which is something that was so desperately needed and with the departure of guy like dante po. Who you know a lot of times. You want guys like that. Just be big bodies that can just kind of run up the middle and Obviously we weren't getting that with plo right and you can blame his way or whatever else but man that was not the case with gilmore this weekend and i. It was so ready. He he literally. He answered the call of the departure of veteran presence. It was like put me in coach. I am ready to give me my shot like. Let's go those great. I mean i was so excited. That was the one thing that really made me like stomp around my living room was like my guy been high on this guy since he got drafted. Got real excited. I think it has to do with her but you know what does it matter. It's definitely So our mr longbottom had a tackle for lossing quarterback it so we're happy for him on that same thing with randy. Gregory though like other guy does big rid would we. would we like to have saxon. Onzacs zack's like full hot boys of the years past. Yes but we are. In the era of little victories. My friends and disrupted. This option is what we need. Hey they lukewarm boys yesterday. And i'm good with that. That's a trend in the right direction friend. Yes like it was like almost it was it was what is that when you order your copy like tampa tampa bay. I don't mean. I can't relate because i stir no coffee at all but all god i know what you mean. That's a very interesting take even in the winter. Yeah twenty below twenty. We don't ever get below. Twenty what am i saying by limiting artika. I probably coffee. But she's like drink hot tea now cold i let go wow. I don't wanna wait too caffeinate you know. I don't wanna burn my tongue. That feels like a line. I don't want to caffeinate. I've been saying it okay. Good spring shirt part of the brand the brand around so those two causing some issues sandwich damarcus lawrence which is great to see. I do have to say though. I feel like i'm not sure this is controversial of media. Even say which. I will help them. Real quick live on instagram. Because i was like. I got three minutes in the night shower because like a freaking hamster Post weekend vibes. This is advertiser content. We now have two point. Three million people incarcerated in america less than seven percent of them are incarcerated for violent crime. That's attorney geoffrey. Robinson director of the aclu trade center for justice and equality. His work inspired the making of who. We are a podcast by ben and jerry's and produced by. Vox creative who we are.

The prison population in the united states has increased seven hundred percent since nineteen seventy black americans. Make up almost forty percent of it. We didn't get here by accident. I didn't know these things. Because i hadn't been taught them. And then the question is. Why wasn't i taught them. Because this information it may be hidden but it's hiding in plain sight who we are takes historic look at the disease racism in and traces it back to its tipping points. This includes the tipping point. Where at today. I think americans are watching and thinking and looking at this issue in ways. They never have before. And that's why. I say this is our last best chance because if we don't get it right. This time we're america is headed is someplace. I don't think anybody wants to go. How do we make our last best.

But i really did feel like jalen. Smith had himself a nice game in deal. Jalen was like let me speak to the freaking manager. Who's been talking shit about me. And he he showed up. Yeah i mean there were some unfortunate penalties. That really like it's hard. It's hard because you wanna give the guy all the credit. He's dube like that. Those were like some big game changers. there are one. He couldn't have helped that and that it was it was the right call. Unfortunately but like his forearm. He was literally like being pushed me. It was just like he. He was falling in his forearm like went in front of bin space and like and then that illegal contact like just none of it. I mean he he had he had quietly had a better game than usual and like there is a lot less to talk about but then of course like something happens with them. It's just unfortunate. Because i feel like he is getting back in the groove and i feel like he is just overall playing better like overall but yeah unfortunate. Because that's what kind of stands out because you're like. Oh yeah oh that was great good job jalen and then those two penalties just like kinda ruined it for me inside his fault necessarily that roughing the passer especially but yeah. No but i just again like this. We are in full. Celebrate little victories mode. Yeah i was. I really like he. He really did have himself a nice. He put together a solid game. And i think it was about damn time those seriously yes Damn time. I mean that. In the nicest way. But i think he himself was even surprised at his his lack of productivity the past couple of weeks and so i think he did. He did a nice job of turning starting to turn that bus around. And i will. I will go ahead and give him credit for that. Okay i will give him credit for that. I think like he goes black. Focuses on the basics. Doesn't try to do too much. And the fact that he has v. e. on his side like i think it really helps his confidence so yeah that l. v. e. Panels also unfortunate that and again like i was trying like if i who are we blaming now because it felt like it felt like it was like his his was he like being held and i don't even know his face. I don't even know. I was just like it felt. I wish it wouldn't have happened. How's that but i. I think i'd do that often. How's that analysis. Might i really wish that penalty would not have happened. Outlook honestly You have to talk about something that i know. You're like chomping at the bit. I feel like you're going to go there. And i'm just gonna let you take it there because i literally next next on my list. Please continue teams baby. Special mother effing teams. Oh very special. Is sunday john fossil. My mother effing guy greg the leg but it was all the players who were making waves yesterday meg. I mean you're right it. They were freaking special. It was so they made it. They may find. It was fun to watch. I was like oh. We're not dead in the water just gives. The other team has his law or like we can do something on a kickoff return. Oh we can stop like a freaking field goal. It's tyrone crawford ended up to big big gate or did they'd moments yesterday. Yes he did and like heated setters like what was it was it was it was it was so freaking on your time. Cedrick wilson with the lateral past. Good win hybrid god that before we even started recording. I mean just that whole entire play is i've watched it like ten times and it is so freaking. I think said that rutgers did that earlier in the day the weekend too which is hilarious. I feel like they said that Usually stand up what we would do. We stand with the northeast. No might not. It's a slight stand. Your some stanford growing there for sure by the day special teams though god in you know. They've taken some heat because there was times this year where they didn't even have the right number of players on the freaking field and you're like how is this happening. You're getting paid. You are literally getting paid to play latest game and you don't know how to play. That feels like an issue to me right. Am i right but that those days when away yesterday i hope they stay away. I hope so to get the looks so they looked good man like they looked like a team that was coached by a coach who has has multiple. Nfc special team week honors under his belt and he died and he does and just creativity. And you know my thoughts on art cowboys puzzle team coaches. Because you know i am. I'm sachi is like is is my guy like my work. Dad like fossils man. He's fine he's real fun real. Oh yeah we'll we'll real fun. I talked to say that. I mean so. It was a birth of a new rigo yesterday to remind honestly like i know. I've said rico. In the past when i did yesterday on gathers no no no no aby. Yes i mean. It's exceed four yards. It's a sick. That's the thing about special teams. Is that a lot of times. It's these guys who aren't going to be your main playmakers. And it gives them a role to either. Elevate themselves into a different part of the team or again just make plays and I think that that's exactly in it. Takes skill the creativity like we said to just be able to plug in players like that. Who aren't going to be automatic. You know or just by their current standards like yeah we know if you put zeki aulia or or you amari cooper or ceedee lamb in the game like there. There's a good chance they make some plays right. But like rico. Like regal dowdell. Let's let's go my guy like that was sick That's fun that was what we need is i have to. I have to believe that it not only helps. Just the team in general obviously field position points below awhile right the basic stats but it has to make you feel good and give you energy as an organization to be able to have just guys in that enrico zahn just a guy but like all players on the team in especially in close included in special units being able to go out there and make some actual breaking place that had to just be a moral boost for this team on the field and also those individual players off the field. That's it just felt like the the the fire at times that we needed. Oh yeah it was there. Yesterday was really fun watching fossil like run up and down the silo. I love him so much. You guys and again. I know people don't care about this because it's about what you get paid to do in the production and whatever else. But i just have to add some color commentary to john fossil and some of these people that when they're in press conferences and i'm sure you can listen to. I'm not sure they put the coordinator ones up on dallas. Cowboys dot com. Either way. he's just he's he's a really lovely guy and you like to see people in this industry who are just genuine good people who also perform well and he he just for all intents and purposes it seems like a really awesome guy. He's really nice. He's really he's just like he's got this like energy where he's so positive and and you know even with all the stuff with with pollard. When that was going down he was very. He stood behind his guy. And he's like no. I believe and i just think he seems like the kind of guy that's really easy to buy into as your coach is what i'm trying to say and it feels like yesterday especially after yesterday that's just going to be further. The further integration into this team that he needed. Let's go speaking of but is all integrated yesterday. Busy was shitty. He hasn't here again. Kevin is game like tcp sub. Just i i'm looking around i think. Cd had that. I'm just. I'm trying to get brandin players and be like overall. It feels like most of these guys had themselves a pretty solid game i think. Cd leeann would like to get that. bobble back that was just like it got punched. It got punched out like it felt like that. Like i look like it. Just that was unfortunate. You know the things the the garrett gilbert interception and red zone that was really unfortunate. But everything else. I came away in felt pretty pretty good about so. Yeah i know. I hate to be saying this right now because we are you know so now our week ten of the season. But i'm gonna say it. We can get pretty decent draft position. And like if. I have to if i have to build moral victories. And you may. Until until my starters and mike quarterback it's back next year and hopefully not lose to the eagles again and hopefully not lose to washington again that to me. I might be okay with that train. Wreck of a final stat line. Looks like because you know again. We're all about little victories. This season and then i can retain that talent right. I can retain that talent. That i have and then i can go out with a top five. Pick and go out and get some more in literally. Wash your mouth with soap if you talk about maybe i. I don't even say that 'cause well taking forever. I'm not talking about taking trevor. I know though it will be really interesting again. Considering where the cowboys will be position. Wise in terms of draft picks it. That will actually be a really really really interesting conversation. So i'm going to go ahead and save that for now because it feels like we're going to go full That's going to be the highlight of the offseason. We're going to beat that narrative into the ground. And whether or not you can truly truly pass up a generational talent. That could be trevor lawrence.

Girls Talkin 'Boys: The Oklahoma Cowboys

"What is Charles and Meghan? Murray here with you from girl's talking boys. Hey y'all obviously Dallas cowboys did some great work in the NFL draft this year and they grabbed a couple players out of Oklahoma so we took the time to sit down with sooner sports reporter. Cudi in really find out more about Neville in CD. Yeah our first girl. Girls Talk and boys. I know it was great. It was great. Yeah she told us why. Cd pick the number two also. What has favorite game was in college? I was shocked. Yeah and never had some really really interesting stories to his upbringing where he came from how he has been setting records since he's been playing football so just amplifying my stanhood Neville out more honestly. It was great so without further. Ado. We'll go ahead and let you guys enjoy all right and as promised with a very special guest for you guys. Today Jessica. Kuti from sooner. Sports Television is coming on to talk all things CD. Land and Naval Gilmore. Just got. Hello Hey they travel beyond. I'm excited that you know as soon nation is pumped that the sooners are staying close to home and of course both of Played a big minutes down there in Jerry world so I think sooner fans are pumped. Yes we have to talk about that but look at introduction to you for those that may not follow you yet. If you've ever seen the viral Baker Mayfield dancing video of him doing the Mili- rock from his Oklahoma Days. Then you seen Jessica's work so you can go ahead and thank you for that because I know each and everyone of you know exactly what I'm talking about. How could you? It's so crazy how that all went down. I mean they mailed was a walk on at that time you know he was. We were at the bowl game and the way that the teams kind of traveled to certain events. You have your offense bus your defense boss that you have basically your special teams in Like basically you're specialists in walk on the other bus zone with other two buses being full staff a lot of times. Just jump on that last bus. The vacant was on that last bus at the time he was starting quarterback. And you know I'm I features Show kind of all the different Against events in in the behind the scenes type of things that happened with with the team so I was just videoing because they were visiting some some sick kids some some patients that were you know. Make a wish. Kids is videoing and next thing. You know you hear a whole team. They had this dance circle and the whole team Starting to get Baker. Mayfield out there so I just happened to have my phone out already and then I reported at an I asked him when we got back on the bus as in Haiti by poses and he said no I. I don't care at all so I posed that was in January or December late December. And it didn't really go viral until the next summer and then it was crazy it was like it blew up so quickly it. Yeah so it's still kind of crazy to me when people tweeted out that I shot that that's from my phone and it was just complete luck that I happened to have my phone out reporting. Well we thank you for that content because I have to say I think I've used it once or twice in on the twitter verse. Obviously Oklahoma is known for turning out some pretty good football players make it to the next level in the League Into cowboys were lucky enough to pick up to those guys this year CD lamb wide receiver at pick seventeen in the first round. We also snagged Neville Gallimore D. Lineman number eighty two pick in the draft by. Yes Jessica again. You're you're embedded with the team. You know these guys better than anyone. I think we can start with. Cd against because he's a first rounder. Tell us about him what what's been your experience with him. Like what kind of guy is he even a face to this dynamic named? We just can't wait to get in the door. Well I could tell you just being that from the second. He walked in the doors at Oklahoma. The second he walks in the door is on there in Dallas Teeth. Going to be loved locker room and he stepped on campus as a freshman and immediately you heard players talking about how this guy does not play like a fresh This guy is not a fresh spin the from the first very first practice. Not even before coaches could even be out there when it was just one on one like a notepad just seven on seven guys getting together just to you know get get some rugged you you heard the talk about this freshman kid begging some unbelievable plays and I think from that from that moment there from the second that he stepped on he started to gain the trust of Baker Mayfield's Baker Mayfield. Was the returning a guy at this point and this is his last year. The year that culminated going to the Rose Bowl Baker immediately trusted this guy as a freshman so it may be the wide receivers that were on that team that year Mark Andrews who is now one of the best tight ends was a all pro. Pro Bowl tight. End this year. Baltimore Marquees Brown also with Baltimore. set rookie records for Baltimore. And you know just just the lineup of a receivers that Baker Mayfield already had and then he he relies on. Cd-rom to the tune of vittal freshman of the year and CD Lamb sets big twelve freshman or Oklahoma freshman receiving records. And you're talking about the previous guy that held that record was Kenny stills. Who again is a guy in a league? Making big time plays on Sunday now meets with Houston. But you know a guy that that record had stood in Kenny stills broker guy by the name of Ryan Royle's record so it's just the caliber of wide receivers that Oklahoma had in what. Cd was able to do would come in as a freshman it GonNa make his own mark. I think was really eye opening to a lot of people. So He's the big twelve freshman offensive freshman of the year. Then he sets all the records as a as a freshman. He comes in his sophomore year. It's time for a new quarterback Kyle Murray who had been playing baseball and in He got drafted Major League baseball draft so he wasn't really actually around as much of the summer. Now now CD did get a chance to work with. Tyler was the backup behind Baker but again. Maybe not as much as you would think a quarterback in a wide receiver get going into that year. Cd Helps Baker Mayfield win. Win The heisman. Then he goes in and he helps Tyler Maury hyphen year number. Three time for new quarterback in this. What's crazy about all this is. It was even less time than the other two that he had time to build that chemistry. So here comes. Jalen hurts and he comes you know. I think he'd been in January. They really only have a spring in CD. Kind of takes matters into his own hands to help build this street. Help build this relationship with his new quarterback in Bikes Jalen Jalen and have a place to stay invites him to stay with him in Charleston Rambo at their house at their apartment. Jalen suck on her couch. The Hours and the time thanked would end behind scenes that nobody knew. I think Jalen gets a lot of robson a lot of eyeballs on him and maybe his post-game workouts but at the CD was also a guy that really put in a lot of time and put in a lot of time with Jalen to help build that chemistry in the night they'd get showed obviously on Saturdays a lot of times when Jalen was going to see over and over again that was his guy. So you're talking about three different guys quarterback exit were arguably one of the best Baker Tyler's case they were the best quarterback in college. Football Jalen hurts. Trophy runner. Up CD lamb was one of the GO-TO for each those three guys. And you hear what each of those three a m as that team guy. He's a you know all in whatever the team needs from him at the most people that have studied cd at this point of the blocking on and I think that he does outside of just catching the football and what does after he catches the football that thinks the place that he makes without the football in San stew or what's impressive Especially for Kyla Murray He. That's what he specifically made note of is that he's not a guy that you know is is going to. He doesn't necessarily have to have the ball in his hands. All the time to make a huge difference on the field and so just to kind of make note of that kind of could go on and him being a teammate. Guy. In a guy that is loved by the team is GonNa put the team. I no matter what you missed the Baylor Game in Waco this past year the biggest game of the season for Oklahoma for the big twelve. Basically period You know it was. The there was rumors that CD wasn't going to get to play up because of an injury and He all the whole week everybody was how has Oklahoma GonNa Win Without CD Land? Well he doesn't get to play Because of that injury comes out and goes down twenty eight to three at halftime or twenty two three and owns it coming back and winning winning that game in this past Right before priority. This past March. We had all those guys. Kinda sit down together and we all went around the room and ask them. What was your favorite game CD? Lamb said the Baylor game that he didn't even get to play and how excited that his team was able to come back and win that game even without him despite named upbeat out there the best player on the fields. Oh you was able to win that. And that he picked that game so I think that just speaks volumes of the type teammates. Cd IS THAT. He doesn't care just wants to win. I love that you're giving me channels thinking about like him. Enact potential look back probably came by over on his couch sincere. We're going through right. But I think the bonding thing for your for your point is really important. Because you know these guys. Everyone's going to be in that situation. This year transitional period where I know see dealt with three different quarterbacks but now the entire cowboys team has a new coaching staff the first time in Riley right at a not like Riley for several years so I look at a guy like died stories telling me what value do you think that guy like. Cb can bring those situations. It's not only a new a new scheme if you will a new coaching staff but you're also trying to learn it implemented in a really really weird time right in And that's another thing that you hear. Dennis Simmons talk about And then Kyle lowry Jalen Baker. All of them have talked about that. He's a very smart football player that he understands the game. It's not just hey lineup. Go catch football for CD. He he understands kind of the exit does he knows of it. Oh he'll be meeting rooms and they've talked about meeting could see things a lot of times when he's watching film that a lot of guys can't so. I think learning a new system in in a short amount of time is not going to be a problem for seating lamb. I think just given the track record of what he's able to do With the quarterbacks just in college I think Dak Prescott is GonNa really like CD lamb and I don't think CD's GonNa have a problem bidding. In even I mean again like I mentioned earlier enemies when he's comes in as a freshman he's not the Guy Right. He's not the number one receiver even as a sophomore. He's not the number one receiver. Marquees Brown was but he was all for being the supplemental. He's the number two guy whatever needs to be. So if Amari Cooper is the guy and CD. Lambs Number. Two number three guy. He's all for that as long as he's helped him win. Love that. So you mentioned needle again. Lots of From him in his collegiate career somebody that has adversity and overcoming it. I know also in his personal life off the field. He had some adversity to overcome namely in his youth where he had actually evacuate New Orleans because of Katrina did he ever mentioned that to you or talk about how that could have impacted the way. He approached adversarial situations on the field. A thousand percent you know. He talks a lot about that kind of shape. Big His drive in his work at thick and You know I think a lot of people say you know they work Har- but you know it's it's easy to say that because everybody works hard bright but I think if you have a driving force behind that and you know. Cd Kinda saw a you know his family and and some of the people that were posted to hit rock bottom because of that in the way that they had to pick up a move everything and he doesn't want his family to have to go through that he wants to provide for them. He wants to make a better life for them so they get drives him every single day he talks about that. I mean he there. There's more behind why he's working than just. I WANNA be a great football player and I think you know. Every player has their own story but CD is definitely one of those. That's working much bigger than just for him to be a star. Nfl football player. I mean it's it's It drives him every single day. He wants to be a year. He wants to take care of his family. He started taking care of them when Zinc College. In so I think he. He has a good head on his shoulders in that regard of knowing that it. It's bigger than him sorry. My dog is barking. Great out his name. Sammy what's up? Hey for no stranger to dock. My task is actually. He's A. He is a cocker Spaniel and never met a stranger but he thinks he's a big bad having to guard the door whenever whenever the ups guy I love it. I love it. Okay so I wanted to ask you a little bit now. His experience at at Stadium and he's already made some big plays down there out when he based Texas in the big twelve championship game and won. Mvp right what's is like day. One started potential. And what do you think he can bring to it? How his offense and tell me a little bit about those moments? I mean. Unbelievable and not even. Just sit at cowboys stadium. But in the cotton bowl too when he played Texas he's had some big moments in Dallas just period and so I think he's looking forward to continue to making those out. Wow moments down there I especially at Baylor. I just remember thinking. It was unfortunate that he didn't win the bullet the cough. I think a lot of people and obviously I would probably be a little bit biased. Being that I work for Oklahoma but I think a lot of people thought that You know he got robbed. Maybe as at Baylor game it would have been a different story. Who knows but I just think you know towards the end and especially in that game the big twelve championship game. There was just no doubt that he was the best player on the field. And just some of the things that he can do that most people can't. It's just it's just right there. You know pretty you can see it. It's right there on the field. You can see what separates them. And so I think a lot of Especially the Victory Championship. It was no doubt that he was the best player on the field. You know that's the first time I think well out of the three big little chip games at the two previous years were won by quarterbacks and so we're Baker Mayfield than Kyla Murray. So I think it. I don't think there's any doubt when I was sitting in the media room or in the upstairs in the press conference room in there is no doubt that. Cd-rom was GONNA win MVP. I think he's there's just this This cool kind of connection a between Oklahoma and Dallas. And it's a big recruiting bed for for Oklahoma. But then you talk about the river showdown that happens in. Dallas every year. And so you know I was telling you guys about just think her sooner fans. They couldn't be more excited a lot of Oklahoma people. We don't have an hell team so a lot of people around here are cowboys. Fans and Asian right. I think they were already. Cowboy stands because that's the closest team that they have an so for now to have to sooners going and then to join Gerald McCoy who's one of the all time favorite sooners ever while it's just like big. You're going to have even more more sooner fan but I think I think just kind of going back to talk about with CD. I think he'll be able to make an immediate impact just because I think he's fine doing whatever he needs to do without the ball his hand in you can see some of the blocking and one of the The wide receivers coach coached him. I asked Tim where two CD rank among some of the best blocking receivers at at and he's had multiple bullet award winners. He's had a lot of guys. Go play in the League. Said that he would probably put. Cd Up there at the top is the best law receiver that he's ever had in his coaching career. So I think looking beyond just catching the football which he's going to do an making plays which is going to do just things that he can add outside of that you know. I think that will make him an immediate impact for this team. A host of the show podcast in two thousand fifteen iceberg. It's what he was most afraid of a pandemic respiratory flu. He told me were living in his nightmare. Now so I had him back on the show to ask him what his he learned. What do all of us need to learn? How far are we from vaccine? And what does he hope for society on the other side of this crisis? What do we need to do to build something better in its aftermath unless our conversation by subscribing to guess or client show wherever you get your podcasts a magical in ancient tree branch to climb up a Spooky K Zero Island by Ghosts? Where all the answers are. Why welcome to the island of explain where we answer questions about? What's going on right now. B- go through scores and do things that we have to be. Adult discretion is advised but seriously kids of all ages are welcome. Even you grown up. Kit was toss island on spot or wherever you listen to today explained back Ha ha ha ha. Ha ha ha ha. I love that I mean you mentioned. He's had some big in Dallas and I actually got the chance to watch him for the rest of the game and it was fun and I are I read some recap reports. I think the best way I could have described him was where one writer said. The defenders were just bounced off of him. I could hit at her myself That's just one of the ways. He plays bigger than what he is and needs to work with Roy Meeting and having conversations with him. Obviously he's The quarterbacks coach over at Oklahoma so video to the secondary and he's gotta use his guys in prep guys to play against. Cd In practice. What did he have to say about how he prepared them to face a threat at the wires position like Lamm will be I mean? I think it's pretty well known across college football. The big twelve is the best offensive. Comforts right in Year in and you're out you're seeing the best offenses in the country and a weekend every single Saturday. You're C- Just an explosive offense that can put up the numbers with Watson perceiver playmakers so I think the more that CD that the stronger in the bigger that he got in by the time last year that especially this year as a junior when Roy manning came in and started talking to his guys about going up against CD lamb it. He just talked about how you know. Look what you're seeing. Every single day on a daily basis in practice is not going to be as hard as what? You're seeing on Saturday so you're going up against the very best everyday in practice. It's only GonNa make you better for what you see in a game. And so I think he saw that tremendous Progress especially with a guy like part on Motley who had a tremendous senior season. He was the number one rated cornerback in the big twelve Stats wise this past year. And both Parnell and Roy Manning will both credit be lamb for that growth in part on Motley in him being the best cornerback arguably in the big twelve last year was because of what he had to do against cd-rom every single day in practice. So yeah I mean I think one other thing that I think Roy Meeting said that. Think you also your what a lot of guys say about. Cd LAMB is that he just loves playing football. He loves it in a way that a lot of people don't and that's kind of what separates him in a lot of ways from a lot of different guys is pure love for the game. A lot of people might just do it to do it. Because they're good at it. Maybe they they love the love that CD LAMB has in game. Roy Management around at a lot of guys that love the game but he said the love the CD lamb has it's just not everybody has it. And that's a lot of times what separates him is just his love for Bill. Which again goes back to have been talking about him. Just being demanded doing whatever it takes he just loves playing a game no matter what that means for him however that means he gets to play the game he loves to play it. You know it's so funny you say that because as you continue to talk about how much he loves the bunny. He's obsessed with the game. I can't help but think of some other wide receivers that have played for the cowboys and leads me. Perfectly into my next question may leave and talking about a lot. There's some controversy around what numbers guys in a way. Yeah he's either He's talked about saying sorry. He has said that he wants to attend but Jerry seems to think that he'd make a great eighty eight. Would you trust him to give eight? It's do if he ends up wearing it. Or why do you think he came up with the number ten you know? I don't know about ten because I know two has always been something that he's used to honor his uncle as the chain and so I don't know I I think again I was at. I was with a the simmons that their house when CD's named got called and When they got to face tight. Timing him Yes he was a born in to leave New Orleans but again being a guy that's from Texas just to see his pure joy he knows all about the Dallas cowboys. If you're at Texas Kid. You're from the state of Texas. It's a dream to play for. The cowboys are America's rights just to see his pure joy. I honestly think no matter what number he gets he will he will do its due diligence. He will honor it if it's eighty eight. He's GonNa do his best doing whatever it might be. But I think he's just so happy to put on that uniform. It doesn't matter what number it is. So what was the story about the number two in his uncle so his uncle was really got him into a playing football and he was a Wide Receiver he got drafted. He played in. I'm not sure that the details but he was a pretty he. He played a lot of football. Played a big time college football and kind of got him into play football and being a receiver and working at all of those little details. The work running the routes things like that got him really into it in. His uncle. Tragically passed away. So it's kind of again another one of those behind the scenes type of things that motivate CD. And that's why he wears that to his uncle. War blame a number that had the two so whatever he wore in high school. I think had a two in it and then he had the two So there's there's something about the numbers that he's always warned somehow ties back to his uncle. So it'll be interesting to see. I think again when he came in as a freshman to was taken some of the other numbers that he was looking at so he wore nine but then he went back to two so as a fresh pretty. Were number nine but I think you know whatever is available for him. I think he'll be more than happy to rapid I would imagine just given his track record in what he's done in his fast. It might have something to do to honor who's on hold but I don't know again whatever I think. He'll take whatever number whatever number is given in. He'll love it that's awesome. Yeah while we talk a lot about CD or super excited about him. But there's another guy that we picked up from your team to that. Were very excited about Neville Gallimore in the third round. Like a mentioned before Visit Defensive. Lineman tackle fills a need. This cowboys team really really really is desperately needed for a minute. We have some some uncertainties on. Who's GONNA actually beat? The starting is in in several positions in so he really comes in in provides some much needed depth in. I Know Meghan specifically loves this guy. Yeah I just so. He's been pretty outspoken about like how excited he is and he's already rapid all the cowboys year in Sweden boys all over his profiles. And you've kind of got me excited about him. Also something desperately needed but could you tell us a little bit about him. I mean Neville so. Cd is a you guys are GonNa love how fans are GonNa love both of those guys with. Cd's a little bit more reserved a little. Bit More I guess maybe not. I wouldn't say shy but just a little bit more reserved in end Neville. Gallimore is the guy that he has the best personality he's Hilarious. He's very outgoing. That's why I cannot wait to see Neville Gallimore Journal McCoy together because Jerrell McCoy is a sooner grew and grew. I think everybody saw his post is videos about outside. And he was when when both of them are brought on but especially for Gala more inevitable guy. That's just really beginning to scratch the surface of what he can do because he he grew up in Canada wasn't necessarily a football guy. He played really every sport and actually went to Canada crap. And there's a fun story behind that. If you guys want me to get into that here at no for a while he he would candidate prep ends up. Becoming the number one recruit out of Canada also becomes the first Canadian to be named a US army high school. All American. He comes to Oklahoma completely raw. He was overweight Had never played this hand in the ground and so you don't break his first year and incomes in and then he starts playing immediately as a REDSHIRT FRESHMAN. I think from the start. It's always been his athleticism and his forty time. Everybody out of the water at the but nobody from Oklahoma. That's been around devil. That were from the start. Were surprised about that at all. He's just from the start. He's been every year you would pull the team. Who would be the most athletic sooner never will be at the top of the list His his -sition coach Calvin told me one time that if they were you know drafting on the picking team to to put together basketball team amongst the football team. Never would be one of the first one picks. It could dunk a basketball at age thirteen so I think the raw athleticism is there. It's always been there. It's just now of beginning to scratch the surface of what it can be with that As a football player and so I think again with your old McCoy Guy who obviously has done it at highest level of this one of the best in the NFL. He'll take him under his wing and help him. Continue to grow with that staff continuing to just you know. Become a very good defensive lineman as opposed to just a very athletic. You know enacting out there on the field so I think he's. You saw the Players Tribune. He's not even close to his ceiling. He played one year under Alex Branch. The new defensive coordinator I think people could see just the disruptive nece and what he could do so I think it's it's just barely beginning description. The surface for Neville Neville Gallivare. It's really cool to that. You mentioned Jeb McCoy. He'll get to learn a lot him to. But you've got a guy like Jim Tomasulo who's GonNa come in and we talk about a man who's who's shown his words I really think he'll take a guy. Like Netherland molds him as an opportunity that you just don't get very often You mentioned forty time. It's four point seven nine man like i. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not gonNA say he's a he's especially player on those numbers. But that's I forbid guy. Yeah Yeah it was what the third fastest time by defense environments in year two thousand. Yeah I yeah in in running at that at three or four and he came in again. I mentioned he. He lost thirty pounds even just at the individual junior season to Richard Junior season to this past season. But you know he had lost I think overall I would say over fifty pounds from the star and so yeah I think again figuring out really how to really play the game of football at a high level all the time because it's really again coming from candidate. He didn't have the type of opportunities of a corner and he played soccer. He played basketball and he played You try he ran. Track guilty literally did every sport and then you got noticed by a coach at candidate. Prep and so they offer him a spot. But it's it's expensive right in. This is part of the feature that I did it on his fast year with his family in another guy that his family is extremely extremely important to him and and for this. A big part is right here. Is You know. He has two brothers and he went to his his family. Said look if if you guys get. Let me somehow find a way to help me get to Canada Prep? I know that I can do big things. I know that it can get me places and so you know. His family didn't have the money at the time but his older brother. Gari found a way somehow scraped the money to get him to candidate to go to where he could. You know hold on his football skills a little bit bored and it's Canada football happen so That's what ended up ultimately getting him discovered and and getting him recruited and all these accolades being the talker Canada. And so you know. And he talked about how serious it was for his family. The conversation that were providing this opportunity. But we've got this money that we're giving you to go to this you. You'd better not mess it up. You better take care of business in you. Know he's agents have a plan B added. Just Take Your Business. They said the second grades are falling the second. You know anything that if you're not doing everything that you need to do to stay on track there were blind you out of that. We're not wasting our money. So that's he. He got his stuff together in boy you know. He really has an appreciation for where he is because of what the sacrifices that it took first family to get him there. Anna as telling you about how his family get to come down and watch him play Bunch. They got to go watch. Oklahoma played at West Virginia. I believe is reg registered year but They got to come down for the first time. this for senior night and he had all of his friends in all of his family and had a lot of friends in the stands as well and they got to be on the field for the first time. I think again it. Just kind of reminds him He has a different kind of perspective than I think. A lot of people in a lot of people do just because you know from Canada. You don't like people from where he's from They don't get these opportunities and so he wants to make the most of them. I actually love that because I know his family is actually the immigration gone. They were farmers. And I can't help but think that played a small part in this mentality of you. We stick together but when we give you an opportunity or we work for an opportunity to take it seriously and I can't help me. Did he ever talk about that part of his his family's history at all? Yeah I didn't really get into much about the the immigration pardon in coming from Haiti but I did You know just the growing up in and with his family and how close they are and Just how important they are and in him wanting to provide for them and and just a lot for them in there.

He's fun facts. Devil is great and he loves broadcasting and he can't get enough of it so you guys ever need of so. Don't worry cowboys Asian. I already took that information and delivered it to our director of broadcasting. The cowboys central media uses. Yeah like He. I'm sure he will be leveraged for sure. Yeah I don't know if you guys have been open for your podcast but you should definitely think about naval because he could definitely provide you a phenomenal one. I love it I love it. Well the thing I think I keep on hearing. Jira is just between these two guys. Oh you DNA is a thing that is preached throughout this program and I feel like obviously there seems to be some secret sauce. Coming out of Norman. You've got guys like Baker. Carla Murray Democra- Murray Adrian Peterson appointment. You could name them. The list of people that are just different performing a higher level but they also have a free sixty approach to how they approach the game Can you talk about what about this? Program is made him so successful. But turning churning high performance athletes out into the world well I think first and foremost. It's a tradition. I mean it's not just the past three years It's not just been with Lincoln Riley. It goes back to Bob stoops and you know a very switzer. I think a cowboys fan a little bit about him. Do in Wilkinson. I mean this is a program. That's one in one four years. I mean it's the most. Winning is the winningest program. Since World War. Two in the Modern Day era. There is not a win their program. That's that's one more than Oklahoma. And so I think you come to Oklahoma with a certain expectation to win. And there's a lot of times it probably. Oh you wins by just being you. Buy just stepping out on the field. Because they're Obama because they've always done they've always fun and so the tradition and upholding. That tradition is very very important to these players. It's it is. It's bigger than just you and what you do in. What your team does you want to you. Don't WanNa be the team that. Let's downed torture. That doesn't win like these other guys. I mean if you guys ever come to Norman let me know all walk you through the facility if you see just the everywhere you look there's banners there's names of all Americans there's trophies. There's there's one wall in particular that has hanging up the jerseys of the guys in the NFL and there's a Jordan shoe a wall and just the all American heisman wall. I mean it's just it goes on and on and on so you come tonight you better be ready to Uphold that in. Nba Art of that Earth. Don't they they've got this thing where it's next man up? We too deep. They've got somebody else that can so I think being a part of that number one and then I think the way they prepare them to Every year guys come back that Have been in the pros and they talk about how not that. It was an easy transition but it was easier because it. It's almost ran the expectations. In what you guys have. What they have to do is players it. Oklahoma is is almost like a pro program in so I hear over and over again for years that once they got the NFL locker room. It was an easier transition for them. That a lot of the guys that were around the mezro piece because they were prepared because of Oklahoma diff- them while they were in that locker room. And that's everything from you know taking care of business from you. Know a weight room Strengthening conditioning the SPILLMAN. Study the Academic see everything. It's all the expectations that are there per everything that you do and I think that's why translate so well to the NFL is. It's the expectations that come with being in Oklahoma. Sooner it kind of just you you take that into the NFL and you carry it into when it becomes your job and your business Things that you learned as an Oklahoma sooner mean when this is over it sounds like we have a road trip order. You've got to get a consecutive out. Why I think it's going to fit in really nicely here down in Dallas again. I think you you can consider a place like Oklahoma a dynasty program in. I I know me personally. I think a lot of people view the cowboys in a similar light too. So I like they'll fit right in that regard but Do you have any final parting stories? Just funny little. Interactions it either of these guys you know in your in your coverage of Dammar. Any other fun facts that we should know yet. You've given us a lot but I saw more. I don't know yeah I I just. I think they're they're just they're so you just knew with both of them. Really that big things were coming. I think is the big thing I mean. There's there's a lot of players you their five star recruit or whatever but I just think that from the start with Really with never once he came in and was starting as a Richard. Freshmen in. You both talked about his big play capability in its thing with. Cd committed immediately. Heats not like a freshman so I think he just kinda new big things ahead. I'm so excited that it's right down the road and they get to be cowboys in and sooner fans are GonNa Flock to watch games. I guarantee that We I just think it's personality wise They're they're really opposite. You know I think like I mentioned but even still both very enjoyable guys berry supportive of one another. I mean I think you saw the tweets from both of them how excited they are You know never was one of the guys it's talking about. Cd about how you know. This kid game. Unday wasn't a freshman. He didn't play like a freshman and so they've played a lot of football together and you know they've they've won a lot of games together and they'll come in and I'll have the expectations to continue to win games together. A girl McCoy in on that even though they weren't he wasn't teammates. That those guys. It's that expectation that comes with being a sooner bill. Hab Expectations at the next level. That they're they expect to win and do it together and so I think it'll be. It'll be cool to see those three guys in how that kind of That oh you. Dna that Brotherhood that they talk about kind of carries on the Dallas Cowboys CD. We did this fun thing. One of the fundings again. It's probably one of those wins yet to see where the near but we had him on. What our spotlight shows in. We kind of try to have a fun game. We play had him kind of breakdown. Some gifts that he saw it it was one. Were the bear. I think caught like A. I don't know if you guys remember that gift for the bear high. The I think it was a piece of bread or something. Jiang guessing I was wrong. I don't know he cut some sort of food that somebody was throw. It added in the Syrian city wide. Receiver kind of breakdown Clip that off incidents. You guys 'cause it's Larry just hearing him break down how. The bear you know went up in in statue the food up. Yeah I will send it to you guys We did have that.

And hopefully, you will enjoy your cowboys beat Tuesay's. Already, tempted on twitter at our sports a are sports can also follow me on Youtube and I would encourage you to do that. Subscribe my Youtube Channel just search our attention or our sports on Youtube and hit that subscribe button that helps a ton Patrick on coast does a great job in covering the cowboys for Wfan, and of course, the Texas longhorns football for Longhorns wire and the lockdown Longhorns podcast Patrick on on twitter at Pat. Sports Guy and let me ask you something, Patrick. How much do you care about practice production meaning? When you read. tweets or articles that reference players making plays throughout practice periods and training camp like how much stock are you putting that if any? Between Zero and nothing like it means. Nothing. Spotlights it's helpful to get the reps and everything like that. I like to me the mental reps physical wraps I think are important. What this guy did as far as all, he intercepted Dak Prescott in the end zone. Doesn't mean a lot to me I mean good. You're showing that you can intercept because seems shown the inability to do it. I think that's good. But the fact is like if somebody bring it up ohno, Dak threw five interceptions practice. Okay An. Right, we all know he's a better football player when the lights are on when the Games are real than he is in practice. So. I mean, it doesn't I don't take a whole lot of stock in. It's just like I said it's it's more of. Their ability to get out there and practice. That's important. Not so much. The. Stats that come with it or the production that comes with it I think it would mean a little bit more for a guy like album Smith. Lesin played in five years. Yeah. You know I think it's good for them I. Think it's more important for the rookies getting acclimated. You know the guys who who need this camp like a tries to hill now i. think it's important for those guys would for as the veterans the Amari Cooper's Michael Gallup's we know that they can do. We've seen what they can do. You know I it's more important. I think for the younger guys. So. I have a comment to make on that because I I think that's really well said, but but I bring this up because in some of the practice notes from Thursday courtesy of Rob Phillips and David Helmet from Dallas Cowboys, Tommy mentioned, you know they singled out Tristan Hill. Basically bringing up that he had a good practice on. Thursday was impressive on Thursday to sack this that you know I mean so. When you hear that or like are you excited? Does it give you hope for optimism around him like or is on those things where it's like cool he's a football player, but he should be doing. You'll wake me up in September when he's when he's doing this in games if he's doing this and games. Wake me up if he plays on the field and so. I mean. I know I. I don't think it's up I don't think it's fair to him for me to really say that but I'm so. What's the word I'm looking for here I'm. I guess I'm worn out by the whole trust. He'll talk because I saw last year and it was really frustrating because you know he's there because of you know combination woman clay and Rod Marinelli Ripe and then Rod Marinelli basically stuck him in the doghouse and he never saw the field right now leaves you wondering what do I have you know? It gives you a little. I mean. To hear that he's doing practice, which is good. It's just we need to see him on the field really, and especially with the the news that came out this week. Now, it's even more important for him. He had the drama, Koi. News certainly and you know the reports practice. are that that you know hill and Neville gallimore getting a ton of reps that spot which you know those along with Taryn, Crawford, or guys that going to be you know be kind of counted on to fortify that. I agree with you on the whole in terms of you know training camp reduction. The thing is like. I always say this year you'll see guys make plays, and then sometimes those guys you know end up having good seasons sometimes you guys make plays in training camp and then you never hear from them again like there's Zero correlation whatsoever. You know playing well and training camp practices and preseason games to success in the regular season because sometimes it does correlate like sometimes you see guys have training camps and have good preseason games and then it leads to success the field. Sometimes you see guys have training camps and good preseason games and then you never hear from them again. So it's like There's just no indication. It's really hard to gauge what kind of an indication it's going to be because there's you've seen it work both ways for guys have success, and then go on to have success that season and then they or they have success and Doug wanted has success or you guys have quote unquote bad training camps he good in the regular season and vice versa. I just I don't know how to gauge how guys play I think the bigger thing to watch for and I think you're right like. All Smith's key like this guy has been an NFL football field in a long time. So like just getting him out there against offensive line like that's key that that's huge rookies young players you know getting a feel for what the NFL and what NFL life is like. I think that's that's key. The other thing to look for I think is you know who are guys that wrote like who are the personnel they're using what? Schematically, what are they doing Those are the things that I think are interesting like CD lamb in particular see lamb is the cowboys punt return. You know you can look at you know through practices, the amount of time that he is been called on to be their punt return. It's like there's nobody else like he's their punt return and so it's interesting 'cause it's like I don't really. I don't really care as much about the catches see it makes practice because I know that he's going to be a good football player on Sundays. But I do like where's he lining up? He's in the slot what he's also in like those are the things I think are important. Yeah and then you have Dak Prescott coming out and taking against old offense coordinator. Really at well, I mean he didn't say I say that ingest it was interesting listening to Dak Prescott discuss the changes that they're seeing. No, he talked a little bit about how. The defense showing him things that he hasn't seen in a pre in a training camp before. And so to me, I. To me yet, he's challenging me right. So it took me it I took it as you know shots fired Rod Marinelli. And Crystal Shard because these guys, it's almost like Dagestan. Wow you're actually trying now right? Right but I thought it was interesting because they're giving you know more complex looks and and you know nine times out of ten. When you have a quarterback, a young quarterback like Dak Prescott seeing these different looks he's not used to seeing that's only going to enhance his regular season. Because you know he's GonNa be like, okay. I saw from four. What did I do? Wasn't even more. So when you don't have preseason need, you didn't have OTA's so it's like and now you're learning a new offense David Hellman. Was a guest on the broadcasting the boys podcasts I'd do with Roy White, the our guest on on on cowboys beat today. But Helmand was saying that it's like it's weird because they're having like simultaneously holding training camp practices. While at the same time you know installing an offense defense this like weird combination of trying to do both things. Yes. I wonder if it's partly that you know they're they're giving him look she's never seen before because they're trying to install their defense but also Because, there's just it's just been such a stunted weird off season that they are needing to kind of challenge him in that way. So as to try to get him ready for the season kicks off in three weeks. Yeah. Yeah. I mean you know it's it's GonNa be really interesting to defense is really where I'm. I guess most intrigued most intrigued. Yeah. Because I want to know what combination of corners are using. You know they they've talked a little bit about league. The will linebacker spot and that's probably were Jalen GonNa play 'cause it's going to allow them to move around a little bit more. You got the better linebacker in late and bands playing Mike. You know, and then you look on the back end who who's playing safety alongside exam your woods which combination is it dare Wurley playing nickel is it Then you got? Trayvon big on the outside on one side to be on the other obviously the news coming out Thursday's Jordan. Lewis got hurt during practice. So there's that question but on top of that, and now we have the have the discussions about are two offensive tackles right now good point that was actually exactly. I. Was GonNa go next so more from Thursday's practice. after a day off on. Wednesday. They're back in the field Thursday tyran Smith left practice did not return this on the heels of Lau Collins being out. Every practice so far he's been doing side work and then Collins got into a car accident on Wednesday rather on Thursday a minor car accident but. You know. So that could have potentially hurt his ability to get back on a football field. So you know you're always going to hear the when it's just precautionary it's not a big deal especially this time of the year, but it's like you start my practice I mean collins hasn't had practiced yet, and yet the whole time we've heard it's not a big deal deal, but it's like I mean, how concerned are you right now? I'm more concerned with the fact that time Smith is out again. You know It's one of those things and I make the joke all the time reports are tyrants hurt offers what you know. We know he's going to miss time. It happens every single season. He hasn't played more than thirteen games in almost five years. How many games you play last year he missed three games last year have could seem like he was pretty healthy last year. Yeah I mean it's it's roughly about the same I. Guess it just depends on when he goes down as far as how you we as health. Wise. But you're right. You're left tackle. So repeat that set again he not. He's not played more than thirteen games since what you're. Since two thousand, fifteen. Wow. Yeah that's. That's substantial. I mean, yeah you. You're missing you're. Starting left tackle your blindside blocker for your. For, the quarterback using get your franchise guy and you're trying to lock up. That's pretty significant and and as we've seen with the guys that they brought in, not anybody that I feel very comfortable with you know a lot of people are talking about what what about the idea of making Connor Williams your your swing tackle because obviously he played left tackle at the University of Texas. Yeah that's all well and good but. WHO's complaining I left guard because. He's really been getting the reps they're left guard and we don't know what we have in a connor? McGovern, yet it. So you don't WanNa, make one spot week by moving him out here. Okay. You're put him a left tackle will okay. Great. But now my left guard is is a liability because I don't know what I have. Not, good point and again it you bring that up Helmand yesterday on the broadcast voice podcast we did mentioned. that. Connor Williams actually been working out at center. To which is like what I thought he was I thought he was going to switch positions. It was going to be the left left tackle or swing tackle so. I mean I think you're absolutely right. The biggest concern here is tyron. Smith, because of the number of you brought up and that he's just not healthy and look he was i. think he was. Average a couple of years ago I. Think he was he was really good last year, but he's still only played in thirteen games as you mentioned. He's still a huge piece offense. Obviously. You need him healthy and Collins two. I guess I be you know be more concerned if we get into September And you know we're still looking at loud college missing practices and Tyron Smith isn't back fully that I think is. Know because the thing is it felt like they wanna be precautious but at the same time like they're installing offense. As we mentioned so like These practices are really important for these guys because this is you know this isn't the New Orleans Saints Three of the same offense you've been running for ten years. This is a brand new offense with similar components, but but you still want to make sure that everybody's there as often as possible to the process this offense and and to see what you have. So you know it's interesting though about the thirteen games in it's it's been exactly thirteen games every year. So Twenty fifteen, that's crazy. But Garnishment hasn't missed pro bowl selections since twenty thirteen. Play Thirty Games. He's still a pro bowler, right? Right yeah because I mean if you look at it the, he only missed one game twenty, twelve through his first. Five seasons. He didn't miss a game outside of that one in two, thousand twelve but since then it's been three games every single season. Well they've been they've been using in practice Brandon Knight Wyatt Miller and tarrant steel steel is an under age in Texas tech you and I both covered the big twelve and I I, certainly thought he would get drafted really good. Probably one of the best left tackles in the big twelve year the guy's going to be it's GonNa be tougher to make team, but you know, Cam Irving, is the guy they signed to be the swing tackle I think brandon is a better option there. So you know based on the fact that you know you're pretty confident tyrants Miss GonNa play in thirteen games. This year that are have a good swing tackle that can can come in there and you know insure your your backside left side just don't chas greeted up, right? Exactly. I was trying to not say, I, was GonNa Mention Adrian clayborn but Yeah. I'M GONNA say it and I'm going to say because. You know it's funny though we could having all big twelve left side of the offensive line if you go with. Connor Williams and intense still God that sounds horrible. Not mean with all due respect to both of those guys. I'd much prefer. I give me an eighty concerns middle. Pre his point. Okay. So I mentioned earlier that lab is GonNa. Be a punt returner. Are you okay with that? Why not he's a playmaker bombs aims as many times. As you can remember, there was the conversation years ago and he got hurt on apart turn, and then it was like, why is he doing that? There's always the concern over that. He you know. Does got hurt catching a ball and getting tackled. Like so you can happen anywhere. It doesn't matter whether it's you know returning punts, but you know when you look it's. Much, like Dez, when he was a rookie, he wasn't the Guy Right he wasn't your number one receiver you have. And Amari Cooper. Michael Gal one of those two guys returning punts I might say, Hey, wait a second. But, see lamb I in Lega said he's a playmaker. Ball in his hand, get it I'm with you hundred percent I. Love It. Don't play scared you know and to your point like. Maybe years down the road when he's your legit number one, you don't. But at this point in time like just get him the football as often as you possibly can, and in many different ways this guy, the was Richard at Oklahoma was fantastic. So. Yeah I. I'm with you. You just can't play scared. You know you can get hurt any anyway in any capacity this is going to be a story. You know as it kind of becomes more obvious that he's going to be there punt return this year and I'm one hundred percent with you on just look just get him the football in any way.

So I've got Roy and Patrick to cowboys podcast and Co hosts together on one show. That's exciting. Obviously I'm excited to be here. So flattered that you would have up on and you be like a question statement was, would you want to react? How did you want? there. Yeah. You know I didn't know if you were trying to pit the two of us to against one another. Kind of the to see which of US responded. Because it is your podcast I wanted to Patrick the first opportunity to say hello but. Not being able to see the two of you. I. Wasn't sure which cue to take. So I'll pick it up and say thank you guys so much for having me. I'm really excited to talk cowboys into be able to do it twice in one week. Right. So we were just talking about the office of line situation on Thursday tired Smith left practice allow calls ready been sitting out, and then he got to a minor car accident on Thursday which. You know basically hurt his ability to come back at least on Thursday how concerned are you with the offensive line? If we're using a scale from one to ten I'm at about an eight right mile. Wow because of this reason, we talked about it a little bit on our podcast are. About the loss of Gerald McCoy not necessarily being a position area that the cowboys would struggle to fill. Yeah. They have several options in guys that they be drafted in the last two years and Tristan Hill and Neville more or. That they've had around here for a little bit in Ontario Antoine Woods, and tyrone Crawford, who's coming back from injury. So I didn't feel like that was an injury that would cost them a lot of issues. If you WANNA talk about a specific position or positions that could derail the entire cowboy season no matter how much firepower they have on the outside in their wide. Receiver group no matter how much ability they have at the quarterback position getting smarter and smarter planning. It's tougher defenses every year none of that will matter he doesn't have the time to deliver the football, and if both of the teams starting tackles are struggling to get on the field or if it one point, even one of them is out for an extended period of time. We're talking about having to change the entire game plan to compensate for that I believe because they don't have the depth of that position that they do in other areas like linebacker white defensive line like running back like wide receiver in almost every other area outside of the secondary you could. kind of feel comfortable sustaining an injury, the offensive line, especially the edges of the offensive line. The interior can sustain a little bit more injury, the eggs of the offense of wine. They don't have any other options besides besides tyron Smith and Lyle Collins and I think that. To to make your point there you're also you have those concerns on the interior because WHO's playing center I mean we think it's looney. Tyler. Is Connor. Williams is connor playing left is it the other connor? McGovern. I. Mean I have far too many questions on the. Connors. They have far too many questions right now for me to feel comfortable with the often of line situation as a all. So, what is your number Patrick? If you had to go one to ten you guys gasped at my eight Where are you house about six and a half seven? Okay. I mean mostly honestly because we talked about it just because we know Tyron Smith is going to miss time. We know that Mrs Three Games every year since twenty fifteen and so I expect that but I don't. I just hope it's not much larger than that because. I. Think they could get away with game virtue. Without tyrant. I look at allowed. Collins. Is your second best often one yeah. because. He's GonNa play every game because he's shown that I mean, you know your best guy is Zack Martin? He's most consists nor pro every year. I don't want to have to worry about that right side line. And that's where my question is. What do they do? I mean we've talked about Terence's steel who was an undrafted free agent Cameron erving if I gotTa go do a game where those two guys in my starting off tackles, we've got problems. Yeah I don't disagree with you. All right. Roy White is our guest here on cowboys beat Reuters, some of the other things you kind of noticing training camp. Well I. Guess It's whatever flavor of tea you liked to indulge in when you're taking your cowboys news, right you can take it one direction or the other. You can get hyped and get excited about the positive things that you see or you can get anxious and get nervous about the negative things you see I try to take a spoonful of both. Mixed the two of them together and see where I find myself ending. I'll tell you this the things that I'm extremely excited about. Alden Smith by all reports appears to be a player that not only looks like he hasn't missed any time playing football, but also may wind up being one of the better if not the best pass rushing weapons that the cowboys have now again, that's without being able to put my own eyes on him, but that's with the being able to come. Yeah. Being able to compare what he is doing to what demarcus Lawrence is doing on the other side, and if they can see those comparisons right in front of their face and they can see. Wow All Smith has the same type of ended demarcus. Lawrence does well Albans fifteen get to the quarterback with the same type of speed and the same type of pass moves pass rush moves that demarcus warrants can that's the type of thing I'm extremely excited about on the offensive side I. Think we're all excited about the same thing. CD LAMB is a defined number one wide receiver in the NFL at least the trajectory of which everyone believes he has the full capability to ascend to and the question is whether or not he'll be able to. TAP into that ability in year one. Based on the reports, it seems like he's going to be a very formidable and dangerous weapon for the cowboys offense. So those two things are the things I'm getting the most excited about Perhaps on the other side that I'm not all excited about or haven't been that excited about I'm not hearing a whole lot of game changing plays from the defensive side of the ball, not hearing about Jason Smith rushing the passer if that's a potential new wrinkle in the cowboys offense, I'm not hearing about quarterback blitzes and again, these could be things that are intentionally keeping a lid on because they. Don't want the rest of the NFL to pick up on the new tendencies that are GonNa come with this coaching staff. But if I'm disappointed or I guess apprehensive about anything outside of the offensive of health, it's probably that I haven't seen a ton of big time plays being made by defensive starters. We've seen a little bit from defensive players that are West well-known and probably unlikely make the roster. So when you think about the defense side of the ball and obviously we're not hearing a Hawaii but what do you make of it that? Dak? Prescott coming out and saying that he seeing looks that he's not used to seeing in training camp. Well. That's probably the other thing that fans should be most excited about is players actively talking about how different the defense looks this season talking about Dak Prescott going against looks that he has not seen before and a training camp it. It really shocks me in disappoints me actually to hear him say those things because he's had four NFL training camps now under his belt right and take here that he wasn't being trained to be confused by defense is incredibly disheartening again. Another. Not, an intentional shot shot at the Cowboys Ocean Staff But yes patrick. If I'm excited about something that the news that they're looking at multiple looks that they're looking at different guys rushing the passer that they're having guys stand up to rush the rush the passer so that the offense has a more difficult time deciphering who's actually coming that stuff is all extremely encouraging because it's all the stuff that we've been begging I can do for the last several seasons. Yeah no I I. You know. For me, it certainly indicates what you just mentioned, which is the sort of indictment on the previous coaching staff, but I also think like there's different components. That go into it and this season a particular where you don't have any OTA's and you're now you're trying to install a defense. So I think it's partly that to where it's like they're also trying to install their offense, their defense, and so it's probably looked that he's used to seeing because they're usually not installing a defense or haven't been in a long time. Yeah. No question about it and and that's I. Mean just the fact that we're hearing the defense looks different is great news because the defense of the last several seasons has been atrocious. It has not held up its end of the bargain when it comes to trying to build a super bowl roster that can contend on offense a season ago that was amongst the best in the league. If you compliment that with the top ten defense, you have a super bowl contender based on what we've seen in season's pass. So. All you need to do really is is focused on taking the next step significantly improving the defense and even though they lost their best player this off season or arguably the best defensive player player buyer. Jones, I. Think they're considerably better. I think it's fair point I. mean you know like you said it's starting you don't have Byron Jones. But you think that they're better at certain sponsor obviously better in the interior I mean even without journal Mccoy, you have to like the addition of Neville Gallimore Don Cari Poe those guys coming from the middle and obviously you got album Smith who's WHO's making plays In McCarthy's talked about you know his linked and his you know explosion off the side and they haven't even we haven't even factored in. The recent signing Everson Griffen and what he's GonNa Bring you know. So you talk about the I think that will help the defense as a whole But if there is one edition that you were excited about from this past offseason, who would you say that one player is? Well man I mean Everson Griffen is probably. A great selection. Just you haven't had enough time to get super excited about what he can bring to the table and. Quite honestly, the timing of the signing was such that you almost don't even have enough time to process it because we're already into practice and then we see Gerald McCoy go down and you know all the excitement around Everson Griffen signing Kinda goes away but. You can make the case. He was the best defensive player that they added this off season Clearly, I think the the addition of CD Wham is what a lot of people would say is their number one most exciting piece. You. Know I, guess I can go dark horse route an just because I think he's going to get a lot of opportunities because no one knows what this secondary is going to look like. But Darryl Worley You know he can play a couple of different positions started for raiders team that wasn't good defensively obviously but he does have some position flexibility ha ha Kohen Dixie is another one that I think is extremely underrated and probably being under appreciated is. Assigning based on what they got him for I think cowboys, fans are gonNA. Look at that signing a year from now and say, wow, he got underpaid for what he ultimately provided for us. So if I'm looking to just two guys and I know most people aren't excited about the secondary and I understand why? Because we don't have a lot of answers there really appreciate your time buddy be well hey, for sure guys. Thanks for putting up with the background noise. Great Noise. About parents we understand.

The Ocho: How Dallas dominated the draft

"America what a welcome to another episode of the Ocho presented you in partnership as always it. Spf nations blog in the boys dot COM arjo Showa of course from bTV and from writer humble host onto the Ocho. It is Monday April. Twenty seven two thousand twenty. Hope all is well wherever you are. We hope you're happy. Save healthy you're practicing social distancing so we can get through these days sooner rather than later. The past weekend was just a lot of fun and it's been said but man it felt really good to have a live. Sporting event for everyone to experience The last dance the first two episodes last Sunday. I'm recording this. Before episodes three and four which will have aired yesterday for you kind of gave us a little taste of that but the draft was just a lot of fun especially to have you know things to analyze things to discuss and things to laugh over and things to get hyped over We just we had a blast at blocking the boys and we want to thank everybody that read anything we rode or followed along on twitter instagram. Or listen to any of our podcast or watched our our youtube videos We all love talking about the Dallas Cowboys and so we're appreciative. And we are so just very thankful to you for making us part of your cowboys. Experience and the cowboys kind of Dominated the two thousand twenty NFL draft. It's still kinda hard to believe if you want. We do have podcast episodes and videos up reacting to every single pick so if you want some sort of in the moment authentic reaction you can go. You can listen to those in your podcast feed makes you subscribe the bog on the boys. Podcast is available. Wherever you get podcasts apple devices spotify to radio stitcher Google play. We're all over. We have by the way an episode of talk on the draft with lives. Ian Miller they recap the entire draft in entire draft class. I should say for the cowboys supreme detail and later today on Monday we have another episode of girls talk and boys with Kelsey Charles and Meg murry special guests from one zero five three the fan and the draft. Show Jeff Cavanaugh. So looking forward to that but this is our first chance that you and I. You know around the campfires. We like to say to kind of sit back and reflect on the whole draft and everything. It's really it gets better. The more you think about it which is crazy to say and look. Nobody is trying to say the cowboys are winning the Super Bowl now Nobody's trying to say that you know. They're the heavy favorite to do anything but on paper. It looks like the Dallas Cowboys had one of the best drafts in the NFL. Let's look through the picks again in the first round guy was took cdl. And why not out of Oklahoma? Second Round Trayvon digs of the corner from Alabama third around Neville Gallimore defensive tackle from Oklahoma fourth-round had two picks though originally only had one they took Reggie Robinson cornerback at a Tulsa and then traded up to draft tyler beyond the center out of Wisconsin. And get to something specific on that here. In a second in the fifth round again the cowboys had to fifth round picks originally. They traded the first one plus there. V Neck sture to the Philadelphia Eagles to move up to draft beyond. And so what they're only fifth round pick took Bradley Anaya the edge rusher out of Utah and then went their final pick took quarterback from James Madison Ben Domenici and so looking at this just kind of you know like you used to go trick or treating how you get back to your house or whatever and you would dump out the bag kind of get wha-what's everything got a twix awesome. Oh I got an almond joy. That sucks you know what I mean like. This is kind of like that for me and looking at it just on the surface generally star wide receiver awesome cornerback with a lot of elite potential great defensive tackle to add to Joe McCoy Ontario. Joining the cowboys. Plus you know I actually. I want to stop there. The Neville Gallimore pick for me is really interesting and there was a tweet from one of the show John. Owning does just fantastic. John Does for the Dallas Morning News. Make sure you check out everything. He writes but he had a tweet. That kind of springboard of this thought from me. The reason I love the Neville Gallimore pick and this is going to sound like an indictment on interest in hill. It's it's not meant to be that but we all know that the Tristan Hill picked at the cow was made their first selection in last year's draft second round pick defensive tackle everybody knows etc that did not go well all right we all know that and the reason. I love the novel Gallimore. Pick is if you had told me. The cowboys are going to draft a defensive lineman in the first three rounds. I probably would have assumed that they were taking Kayla. Von Jason Right. That's that's what I would have thought they would have taken some sort of address right now. A lot of people would have been satisfied at the same kind of Bradley in with eighty second overall. Pick but the reason I love that pick is because we have seen time and time and time again. The cowboys rest on their laurels. And the cowboys say well. We invested that already. So let's let's hope that pans out and let's let's worry about something else. Whatever the problem might have been and we've seen that we've seen the cowboys just kind of stick with what was kind of working or stick with where the money was etc a lot of. Nfl teams do this. I'm not trying to pick on the cowboys but the reason I love the NFL Gallimore. Pick is the cowboys. Said look we might have spent a second round pick Andreessen Hill last year but who cares because right now. That does not look great. We need to fix that. We need to really put a lot of focus and a lot of prioritization on the middle of that defense of land interior pressure. So we're GONNA go out. We're going to sign Joe McCoy. We're going to go out. We'RE GONNA SIGNED ONTARIO. And then you know what we're not gonNA stop if there's a pick. There's a player that we like. We're going to take him. So we're GONNA take another gallon wide of Oklahoma because we really like what he offers and so I don't even know where Tristan Hill stands with the cowboys right now. And that's okay I again. That is okay that you don't have to be married to his potential simply because you took him in the second round. Last year so I applaud the cowboys for developing a more objective mindset towards these things as opposed to kind of you know living off a moment but living off the pressure that is associated with the moment seven times like taking player in the second round. So so good for the cowboys. But so I didn't mean to get to sidetracked again so looking at you know my my trick or treat bag another corner with potential safety flexibility. We'll get to that in a second to in Reggie Robinson. And then you get you know the tyler pick and I do have something I want to touch on there. We'll get there like I said but to trade up was I mean ballsy said aggressive way to put it but I mean the cowboys saw their guy falling sawn opportunity and again the the reason I really liked this pick and this has been said but the cowboys traded their fifth round. Pick next year because they know they're gonNA complex. Are The cowboys know? They've got compensatory picks coming for Byron Jones Robert Quinn for whatever you WANNA call it. And so they're they're operating with not house money but there are already operating that way which is very very very wise so good for them from that capacity and again. The cowboys have seven players in their rookie class. You don't need an eighth. You know you you can have too many picks at a certain point. I mean think about you know not every rookie makes the team generally and so I applaud that move from the cowboys and then Bradley and I. I mean people that studying know far more about edge rushers than I do. are thrilled with this pick. The Jet Cavanaugh. Who you will hear on grows talking boys was pumped about it as well but I mean look we all thought maybe they would go chase on but to get somebody like that somebody to groom and now you're talking about a pass rush group that could potentially look something like demarcus. Lawrence Tyrone Crawford because of course dorrance Armstrong Joe Jackson obviously Bradley. And then maybe Randy Gregory or Alden Smith I mean. That's that's exciting. That's exciting to consider and then again when when you look at the not not to. You know no no offense and not to leave off into neutral. But you know you get a quarterback project for Mike McCarthy. That's awesome but when you combine that with the Free Agency editions of the cowboys have brought in Gel McCoy Maurice Candy how clinics Dante Repo Greg's airline Blake Bell. Alden Smith has mentioned and save on Smith. The cowboys have effectively addressed every single needed. They had do some way shape or form and I just color me impressed. I'm incredibly impressed with the cowboys have done. And I don't know that people thought it was impossible. You know what it was like always can't pull this off no way but I don't know that anybody thought they could pull it off like this And so the defense is still you know worse off than it was when the season ended and that's undeniable. Because you did lose Byron Jones and Robert Quinn but you're fixing it and that's that's what matters and that's what's important but also of note by the way on Sunday cave on frazier. Who was part of the cowboys? Famed Thousand Sixteen draft class. Lots of comparing going on right now. Obviously greatest draft classes in college history. Certainly nineteen seventy. Two thousand five was great. 2016 gave you Dakyns Jalen Smith and of course the goat. Rico gathers cave on frazier and Anthony Brown not to forget him. Our part of that class as well and cave on frazier headed to the Miami Dolphins. We found out on Sunday. So cave on I actually interviewed him and he was on the old. Rj Ocho a show Which used to be the name of my podcast. Because I was super creative and He was a guest on that podcast the weekend. He was drafted. I'll never forget that. And so Cave on was awesome. One of the cooler kinder dudes in the cowboys. Locker Room. Great for the Dallas Community so very happy for him to find a spa with the dolphins Rejoining Byron Jones by the way and so All the best to cave on in his future endeavors but look. I mentioned that we had some things to get into some things to discuss it. We're going to do that right. I mean I think at the very least we should deliver what we promised. We have some topics to address and some important things to say and so I think now is the time to do that. So the cowboys drafted a center cool. They traded up to draft center awesome. What does that mean right? I mean I don't know that anybody necessarily things that Taylor beyond which is going to be a team starting center in two thousand twenty. And that's no knock on tyler but there are a lot of options and that got me thinking because the cowboys suddenly have a lot of options along the offensive line. And so let let's in fact let's count the offensive line members that are probably going to make the fifty three which is actually non fifty three but the final roster right after preseason everything tyran Smith Connor Williams. And I'm going off started here Joe. Looney Zack Martin. Lyle Collins. That's your five right you've got connor McGovern that six. Adam Redmond that seven Brandon Knight is eight Tyler is nine and if you want to include Mitch Hyatt? May I mean? That's that's fine but that's ten alright. That's ten offensive now. Something that is very interesting is in the new collective bargaining agreement. That came together this past off season. I honestly this past offseason. You know this offseason. They were in the new collective bargaining agreement. A lot of people focused on the seventeenth game and the expansion of the play offs and those are important things but something important. Is that if you were unaware. For whatever reason. Previously teams had fifty three players on their roster. They're active roster and then on Game Day. They could only dress forty-six players. Okay so you had to have seven inactive so maybe you knew the football and you are unaware of this so seven players of your fifty. Three are not permitted to dress. You have to choose which ones are going to be inactive which ones are going to sweat pants now. That has changed so now. A total of forty eight players will address on game days. Okay not just forty seven or forty six six hundred but forty eight. So we're going up from forty six to forty eight and one of them must be an offensive Lineman. That is important here. Okay so we're going from forty six game day. Players to forty eight and one of those two editions has to be an offensive lineman and for what it's worth fifty three man roster now becomes the fifty five man roster to adjust for the necessary depth. So that suddenly. I'm not saying that the cowboys drafted tabby ish simply. Because they have to dress an extra lineman but I think that that future problem is not something that has to be worried about or whatever I guess what I'm trying to say is I think the cow is kind of leaned into that right. You never can have enough to have anywhere right. I don't think you I don't think any. Nfl team look at any spot. Like deep there. We'll just we've got too much talent. You know what we can do. This sucks you know. Team deals that way. And so if you have all the offensive lineman named are probably people that you think are fairly good right. I mean obviously we got your starters and everything but Mitch High. It still has some fans brandon nights certainly a guy with potential McGovern obviously going to be a big part of the two thousand twenty season and so on and so if if you're wondering me and well they're going to be so deep offensive line. How are they going to figure out who dresses on Game Day? That's your answer. Is the cowboys can now just like every other. Nfl team dress. An extra offensive lineman in fact they have to the rules and so I think this was the cowboys just kind of leaning into that and that was really really really smart of them. So big goal tip of the hat to the cowboys for leaning in to the small little wrinkle that kind of went unnoticed in the new collective bargaining agreement. So good for them. Something else that we promised to address is having to do with Reggie Robinson sort of now. The cowboys obviously finish their draft on Saturday evening. And then when they were done they took to zoom or whatever the case may be did their post press conference and Mike McCarthy said something really interesting okay. He said he was asked about. The whole staff was asked about not drafting. A safety and Mike McCarthy said we may have some players that can not only play corner but also slide over and play some safety now. He was Kinda talking about veterans at the time. And interestingly enough this this article from two thousand eighteen over at pro football talk we quoted this. I wrote about this whole subject by the way I wrote about the Taliban artists thing. If you want to read that to basically you should be reading blog on the voice dot com time Bailey. Way This article from P. F. T. Back in June twentieth almost two years ago reads. The Cowboys. Drafted should obey. Was it with a plan of playing him at safety but he spent his rookie season at. Cornerback remember this was two thousand eighteen coming off cheetahs rookie year. Starting six Games has remained corner. This offseason again. Twenty eighteen though. This team has floated the playing him at safety. If they need help there they said he has no preference now. That is significant. When you consider the fact that the cowboys did not have to safety all right. We all thought that maybe Xavier mckinney grant Albert or Antonio Junior whatever. We're going to be there to fifty one. That did not happen. Maybe the cowboys feel like. They have a safety on their roster. Or MAYBE JERRY. Jones said that Reggie Robinson their fourth round pick but it's also has some safety potential so maybe the plan for the cowboys granted. They did sign ha ha Clinton dix but they also lost the goat. Jeff Heath right trying to get over that still but the cowboys signed Clinton Dix and seemingly have options Reggie Robinson now the idea obviously has been floated out before to slide over to safety from cornerback for a few years. Now I think that that's wise ultimately I mean I don't know that the cow was suddenly have depth at cornerback. But to be frank she has never been a star at cornerback. I'm a big Fan. He's been on this show if you've heard my interviews with him you know we've had a lot of great fun and autographed times. He's a to K player him enjoying Lewis have a great rivalry going on etc. But there's no question that she has a lot of athleticism and there's no question that he's very fast. I mean. Remember the the clip last season against Saquon Barkley and whatnot. But I mean if if. That's some sort of contingency plan. I don't think it's unwise. I mean if if you feel like because this is a contractor Cheeto if you feel like that's what the most production can be you know ultimately stemmed from then do it. I mean I think that that's why maybe the cowboys looked at their astronauts. Said look if if able to come away with a safety if the value. Mary's the need whenever we're on the clock. Then we'll do it right. We're not going to turn down on mckinney or whoever the case but if not we've got we've got cheeto and we liked this reggie kid who maybe play some safety. I think ultimately probably just from a general standpoint prefer sliding cheeto over to safety in the here and now and then playing Reggie Robinson at cornerback. Because if you fast forward to twenty twenty one. You're cornerback. Group looks something you know who knows what. Like but at the very least it should include trayvon digs and Reggie Robinson and you figure out safety and you kind of move forward throughout twenty twenty one but so I thought that was interesting. I thought it was interesting that Mike McCarthy mentioned that specifically so I thought you know overall by the Way Mike. Mccarthy just was fabulous. I don't mean to attribute too much credit to him or not enough credit to him. But you know it's fair to at least look at the draft results for the cowboys and say what was different right. I mean you know. They suddenly got an incredible amount of value. What was different and you know there were a lot of differences. Obviously there's differences every year to year. But the reality is there's a difference a head coach so people are going to naturally draw that conclusion and whether it's fair not ultimately remains to be seen in this kind of privy to just the cowboys but I I really appreciate what Mike McCarthy at the very Lee said. I thought he was objective. I thought he was concise precise and I thought that you know he sounded like a guy who knew what he wanted and ultimately at the very least that's what you want right There was a quote he had also and his post draft press conference where he talked about being very excited about that. He in Kellyn more had met on Saturday to talk about it and added a new wrinkles. So yeah new wrinkles are here so get pumped but overall just an incredible draft class for the cowboys. Incredible you can and obviously a lot of what comes next is unknown because of the times we're living in and so we'll have to just kind of wait and see but I can promise you that in the time that we are waiting in the time that we are seeing that we are not going anywhere.

The 75O: Which DL make the 53-man roster?

"Welcome back to the seven five. Oh I am your Org Ocho. He is your seven five two time superbowl champion College Football Hall of Famer the One. The only the bionic knee Tony Casillas TC what up. What up with you? My man doing good here on Tuesday taco Tuesday by the way. By the way into the TACO Tuesday do. I don't know why thought about that. I I guess because I'm hungry. What time is it ten fifteen and I'm like already thinking of food, but you get in that crazy i. mean I know it was kind of like Lebron account coined the phrase, but. It talk because I. Eat Tacos any day. tacos any day for breakfast lunch dinner but it's funny. You bring that up I. Talk especially. I saw on. Read right before we started recording. The NBA sub read it had. It was like a graph that showed how lebrons performance has dipped since like he started making Taco Tuesday a thing, and it literally has like like everything charted, and it showed like the point. It was amazing Um. So taco Tuesday has not been a thing for Lebron that has gone well on the court I know. He tried to trademark the phrase, but but yeah. What's your favorite renters Taco? Just anything chill diesel. Probably eggs more the I. Tell you what I. Really like and I don't mind giving them. The Plugs Water Burger, Tuxedos or kind of like the breakfast Taco. They're pretty good, but you know I like anything with eggs, but Jodi so probably is my best. Probably cheese eggs though some JALAPENOS. The JALAPENOS, don't really go well for me. Share much information, but look dude. I mean I'm all about eggs I'm all about partic- I'm all about everything else. It goes along with that so i. It doesn't take a whole lot to. Make me happy when it comes to tacos. Okay well, that's that's a solid choice talk. Oh, friendly, sure. Well good, we'll still we can whip up for lunch, but but Tony. It is training camp season I. Don't know we're. We're in the middle of training camp. Does it feel that way? Now I feel what I said before we start. You know I just WanNa. Get Out of this funk man, I think count in this faulk with the pandemic, and by the way I saw great. As you probably see advertised on Instagram, Tomasson Great Shirt said twenty twenty sucks almost like ordered the handful of those because it seems like it's been to that point, although we don't WanNa like. Be The doom and gloom, but it has really of struggled with had had any type momentum and finding some happiness, but we are finding happiness. I think that we need to have this approach RJ. Because if we don't, we'll just go back into the you know is is training camp. Star in football can start. We just got a little approach like you know. This is the way we get. Accept the the norm for football season with everything. That's going on, but look at it. Is it something that's a? It's approaching and. Really. Be I would say be very optimistic about it because I think a lot of pessimism goes into it, but I think we just need to have that approaching like look, let's get into this. Let's try and you know we can play day by day. Because obviously, that's what the NFL. That's what other sports are dealing with it and it's still with that pros, and let's be positive it. Obviously positively is obviously always excuse me my preferred outlive or my preferred choice. This has felt You mentioned. We're talking on Tuesday about ten thirty in the morning. This is felt like a heavy week. Already It's it's. It's been a big big dose. Heavy in the world of sports I think a lot of that. Was You know we all were riding high over the weekend? You know baseball coming back to maybe a scrimmages, and then the marlins thing just really kind of took some wind out of sales and. It just kind of feels like we took a step forward, and we took five steps back. You know yes, but I think also R., J.? Don't you think is that there's so you know you? You can't really speculate how things are gonNA happen. You can't have a schedule. You can't plan because of this and. And I'm with you on the Major League Baseball because I really actually was getting into it over the weekend I'm watching it. I think this the fact that we had you know sports on and baseball, and just a cardboard cut ups, and the fact that the Rangers are planning a new ballpark. Then, we get the news of the MARLINS and. Several players get tested positive for the coronavirus, and then it just this change is to redirect stat, or the the question is now. Do they continue plant so? That's Kinda going to be the norm now I mean we're going to have to deal with this and really just again just try to. Of a glass half empty, hopefully a glass half. Full kind of approach to it. Totally. Everyday is different. Everyday really is I mean things changed. They changed by the hour. So you know it kind of feels like we just got into all this, but at the same time. It feels like we've been in it for. Five years now but seems like groundhog day, brother. As. This let's be optimistic. Get up and let's. Start a new day. Maybe something will change. It is just kind of amazing at this all started like right after the super bowl or at the combine I. Guess you know I it. It doesn't feel like that, but training camp is here. Players are reporting. We know the cowboys rookies are all at the star getting ready. And we know the cowboys are starting football operations in starting to to put together roster We're trying to mirror that on Monday. He on the blog voice podcast network. We put together the offensive linemen that we think will make the cowboys fifty three man roster. Today Tony Because you're here. We're obviously going to do the defensive line and so Look you know however many we choose whoever's doing the rest of the team the rest of this week. They're they're going to have to work with that. There's obviously going to be a lot of defensive lineman on this fifty three man roster, but. There's going to be cuts. There's there's going to be a cut. I guarantee you listening the you're GONNA say. How did you guys leave him? Let's it's it's hard. So you want to start Tony? WHO's the most obvious name well then? You GotTa Start With Number Ninety demarcus Lawrence. That's obviously going to be. That's a no brainer. I, look at the free agent. Acquisitions Gerald McCoy's the deteriorate pose. Interesting for time on I'm looking at the the roster right now the depth chart. An easily distal projected starters. Toronto Tyrone Crawford is projected at the right defenseman, and really that's this question marks air RJ, because of the injury to the hip and just kind of where you know. He's going to be back. Share ours healthwise I think that's a better position for him out more on an island and you know the banging inside with the with all those big bodies I. Don't think I think he's more suited for now. Outside Guy Hero. Those four guys right there now I don't know his salary. I know you know. They signed him to a big deal in really again the unknown but I mean once you start looking at the the the the the next to the you know the second team the depth chart. I think when I look at Tristan Hill missile. Is I don't I? Don't know if he's you know. He's the guy that fell asleep and Isaiah Thomas is giving A. Giving a motivation speech. So I think I look a true story. Making that out. You can make that up so when I look at a guy that really needs to have a really solid year guy that they drafted last year the second round. With the second round pick He's got the show them look I'm you know I'm committed a playing football? This is my profession. I'm not going to be falling asleep in meetings. In look, he has something to prove, so that would be the first name in question. you know once I get to that second the the twos. That's the guy that really really has to show them that. I, mean business so. You named I, think I think if we had to guess the cowboys starting defensive line today, it would be demarcus. Lawrence and tarrant Crawford outside Joe. McCoy Ontario in the middle. That's four guys that are making the three master. There's no disagreements there. We totally agree. You mentioned Tristen Hill kind of getting to the second wave. I I certainly agree with you that. He's not the most reliable defensive lineman on the team, but I mean. Especially when you consider that next year, salary cap is is really not going to be a friendly one right now. Cheap labor relatively speaking is what NFL. Teams are going to be looking for, and the reality is the cowboys have Tristan Hill on a rookie. Deal it it really. There is no incentive to cutting him I I think especially financially so I think Tristan Hill is. Is Kind of protected by his contract. If that makes sense, just because it's. It's such a friendly one because you don't know what what next year is going to bring at defensive tackle I. Mean You have a lot of options but I. I don't. I can't see interest in he'll. Getting cut is really my point, so I think he's on the team, so there's five. You've got this year's rookies along the defensive line in Neville Gallimore. Who by the way Tony the first photos of him wearing number seventy, five, starting to float out nice is to see a sooner rock in the seven. I love that it looks good in those colors and I was very excited about that. Even I think I. Re tweeted on on the on on twitter and I. Think I might have to go out and buy me novel Gallimore Jersey. Well you've got one just switched the name. Well, you're right. I do that, but I want authentic one I. Think. Actually. Have you ever bought an NFL JERSEY? Come through so yeah. I mean I'm just yeah. I really mean a bought jerseys to get signed by other players but just a couple, but no not made for me personally so. I'd be breaking pets that mode of buying jerseys, but look I mean. He's a former sooner. you know he's he's a guy. That's where number seventy five and so you. We got a connection there but yeah, I could see the doing that. It's probably probably not too many guys. You know my son, he. He's already bought a CD lamb. Jersey, which was was expected, but I think that's pretty cool, but in speaking of naval gala. I think that's a good question now when I look at the depth of these defensive line. In on paper now there's some. Rookies and younger guys can obviously at the prove himself and you know there's this transition, so you really really down out. Making the proof is in the pudding as far as when you're competing against Zach March. You compete against the tyrone Around Smith I mean there's there's a transition there, so really know how they're gonNA perform, although those are two potential probably will not potential. To future pro football hall of Famers, so I, think the novel Gallimore adds a lot of depth and really to the whole core defensive line that they already had I I'm really excited to see what he can do. Because as we studied the guy and he's very, he's a big dude. He doesn't. He doesn't look like he's six to three hundred pounds. He fits in. That body very powerful in. Here's the thing I like about him and I'm not the same because I'm biased. My may seem buys towards A. When you watch him, play finishes. Place in so I think that when you see a big man like that chasing down in an open field. I mean you have Tennessee the excited? That really sticks out on Phil sure I mean all the reason in the world to be excited about Neville more. Everybody was really stunned that he fell all the way to the third round. His He's obviously on the team so as Bradley a Ni- always fifth round, pick a edge rusher. So that gives us. We said We've got our four. We've got tristen Hill. Neville Gallimore Bradley that seven. I it's I mean. Ten nine is kind of where I think this, this particular position group going to cap out. So, we really only got maybe two more spots. Available. You know along the defensive line as a whole in. Let's see we've got. We've got Joe McCoy Got Dante Repo. We said Tristen Hill Neville Gallimore that's four defensive tackles. All the love in the world at the middle of the defensive line Tony but. That's a lot already, I don't know that they'll carry anymore and so edge rushers. We already have demarcus Lawrence and Bradley Ni-. Alden Smith's obviously make the fifty three man roster. So that's another guy You've got dorrance Armstrong. Who is now one of the veterans on the team? In considering you don't think about that address group. You've got demarcus Lawrence. WHO's a stud, but outside of that I mean just nothing but question marks obviously. Tyrone Crawford is a question. Right because that's just kind of who he is. Bradley in is a rookie. Alden Smith. Is You know a question mark for his own reasons? Andorrans Armstrong really has never really done much at the NFL level. Played obviously his college football at the mighty football powerhouse known as Kansas but but so that's nine I. Don't know that there's anybody else that we can say. With. Certainty is going to make the roster well. You GotTa remember obviously the loss Robert Griffin this last year free agency, and so where do you get? do you make up those sacks and I think? Alden, Smith is KINDA GONNA. Be Very intriguing to see what type shape is any minis? He's been away for while. Hasn't played football. He's kept himself in tremendous shape but the dude if he picks up where he left off and continues that potential could be huge for the an edge rusher and added some addition for for Saks where Robert Griffin. To try to replace that. I really the versatility of the defensive and to me I mean all is is when you look at his career, and is something i. read about him, is that he situational man he you can line him up across the board and mismatch because the dude has been. Very adaptable when it comes to being able to go inside and outside so I think that if he is lives up to any potential. Obviously, they didn't spend a ton of money and you talked about. You know getting cheap labor. But to me, I think in on a Bradley. If he. You know he is projections and again I. I really hate to get really excited about rookies, because you really don't know because of the transition but the addition in him and he's A. He's a tremendous player meaning. He was a PAC. Ten of excuse me PAC twelve defensive player of the year. Is Very Very. He's a big dude. I mean plays great leverage although the the difference between him and Naval Gallimore, and this is kind of what I read in the scouting report where we started. Our show is that? Has it propensity not maybe finish place RJ but? I'm not going to nitpick and and really speak critiquing. That much right now. Give him an opportunity. Inside, I think the debt I. think that's the biggest thing that we're looking at here in the defensive line because we can project. WHO's GonNa? Be playing, and maybe they keep eight or nine or I don't think they're going to keep ten, but something they haven't had inside is really good. guys can play the Ron and rush the passer and I think if you you'll get that. jearl McCoy a Dante Paul poll. Yeah. He's a big dude inside big powerful guy. But I think that that really inside out. Really Bolts wealth form. It's just a matter of who you're going to get besides demarcus lawrence off the edge to really add. Some an addition to him that create a lot of duress on the edge, and really it all comes down to the both these guys you know inside the tackles and the ends working together. How's that GONNA fit together? I agree. And I there's a lot of combinations here Rodman Elliot's probably said that he can't be the one to get to experiment with all of it. but Jim Tomasulo. Certainly going to have have history share I. Think I, think these names I feel like these guys are all making the roster I mean maybe be. dorrance Armstrong's on the bubble. A little bit, but I mean. The cowboys would have to feel really confident that Randy. Gregory's coming back because we still don't know about that. You can't factor him in ore, Joe Jackson. Who Jerry Jones hyped up a lot less. Training Camp Period Really impressive in training camp but I mean so he's he's my like kind of fringe, dude, but looking at this again. demarcus Lawrence Tyrone Crawford all dismiss Bradley I as edge. rusher storms Armstrong obviously there that gives you five and then four defensive tackles as far as I. See Joe McCoy Ontario. Neville, gala more tristen Hill is definitely the low man on the totem pole there. That's nine defensive lineman. I just you know. I don't know about a tenth. You know again no disrespect to the decline. Look. No no disrespect taken here. I mean I think. I, I mean if you can platoon look, I mean if if that's the strongest part of your your, you know your defense and look I mean of all those guys with that valuable. You have to take into consideration. You know who you have, and as you look, and you can only keep so many guys. There's so many spots and use a thing also. That maybe get your perspective. This is the learning how you GonNa teach some these younger guys because it's all going to be different. What the covert and You know how than when as far as work on the players know preseason games, so the development part of it is going to be Kinda unique this year. You're not going to have the time to these guys to really adapt and get more rest because it's like. Let's hurry up and get the season started. Because we don't have the time that we did because a covert so also that the learning curve, some of the younger guys to see what they can do now on the flip side of that main. It's in a for a veteran. I welcome it. I mean I. You know I think we're always higher. Harpen about is a veteran. We don't WanNA. Play preseason games, because for one it's. Necessary you, know you. You take a chance of getting injured, but for veteran players. I think it'll be fine, but I think just for the younger guys that really that need more. The reps kind of need to see it. May Be a little bit different transition there. No, I agree. Actually this brings me to interesting point, but I just WANNA. Make sure we're in agreement. These are the nine guys that we can see nine defense. Oilman Yes Antoine Woods is not is not gonNA. Make me another name. That's why was he contributed I mean I. He had glimpses where he was a guy. That Canada so Antoine. That Antoine doesn't annoy me. Don't don't take this that way, but but Antoine annoys me because he has this incredible, incredibly loyal following. On twitter and look if you don't be the person that tattle tales on twitter and like tags, the player nobody likes that that's the worst thing like when people tag the player, whatever but in in our mentions on the blog and the boys account. I think Antoine hates us. because you know, we've just said some things and then people tattletale and he sees it, and so he's gotten upset about it, so Antoine his look. He's got potential, but here's A. Antoine Woods I'm not keeping personally over Jerrell mcchord Ontario I think you agree with that. I'm not keeping him over Neville gallimore because I mean a I think. Neville projects to be a better player even if he's not today. And like go back to the finances of all this I mean Neville Gallon wars now on a rookie contract and I have team control over him for four years. Interest in hill is on the second year of his rookie contract, and so all of those things have greater upside to me than Antoine Woods, and that's that's one of those hard decisions for me is because while I can totally see that are see him being a legitimate contributor this year I mean I I don't know. I don't know how you make room for him. Now He's probably my tenth guy. I'll say that he's probably my tenth name Actually Randy Gregory. Randy Gregory is eligible. That's my tenth name. But, if Randy, Gregory's eligible may be I bumped outdoor, Armstrong like I'm saying and so Antoine's on the cusp there for me, and maybe he somebody. Who in this kind of rose going to go now? Aided by one of these opt-outs that we're seeing, we're seeing a lot of names. Opt Out. But before I get to that I wanNA. Get your take on Anton. What's I mean? Would you see? That's five? Defensive Tackles I mean would you carry him, or is he just on on the edge for you to well, it just depends on if I can get because tyrod Tehran Crawford. Is a guy that is played inside, but I think it's more. I think he's more natural outside and again. He's had some health issues I. don't that's a question mark? Is You know? How's he going to out? How's it going to hold up? I mean you know he's? He's when you when it comes to hip injury and having surgery I mean that's just kind of the unknown, and hopefully it won't be an issue, but. That's another issue with him and see what you know how he holds up. You know how health going to be this year because. I always think this notion that I think you've got to keep as many guys. You think you're going to contribute now if you know bent woods if you compare them to Tristen Hill as far as last year. Tristan Hill did not contribute whatsoever. They both had the issue with Isaiah Thomas was the two of them actually yeah, so both of them I mean whatever it is. That I thought was. The fall asleep like that I just I, had to slap him across the head and say look. Do just wake up and but. That's that's another story, but. I think that it's a notion for me as a key players that can make a contribution and look the degeneration of Saxon and pressures hard to find Obviously if you're run stopper, which you know, there's there's guys that they have that are. More noted that, but also they helped. Push the pocket so. It just depends on. You. Know you mentioned read, Randy Gregg. I don't know what his status is. It seemed like that changes all the time. Because it. Just some of the decisions made. Maybe. That's not even factor too then right now. I mean. I don't even seem on the roster, so it's are less to factor man I'm this with the guys have rest rousers under the guys that we just mentioned. those are the guys I really think that they may. Well. I mean a lot most of them in ones that we mentioned that the shoe and wants a guide, so the demarcus Lawrence's in Jerem McCoy's those geyser. They're going to be there, but as far as some of the other guys. That are you know I? It becomes a numbers game I mean that's that's what we're talking about. I mean you can only keep so many players at that position. I remember I used to have a history teacher. Beckett Ucla, who said to us that there are times when you could feel the PFISTER history tightening around you, boss thought about that. She was talking not long after nine eleven. But this is another one of those moments. It is a hinge moment in the American democratic experiment. The entire globe is battered by the current virus. We are dealing with some of our oldest moons in this country on top of entirely new technologies. It is a crazy time. As client host of Yasser Konczal podcasts and what we're trying to do right now is understand our time and try to find some the ideas that might help us chart away out of it the best you months. We've talked Tommy Coats about why the protest meet him actually hopeful tomorrow Mariana Moscow, cotto about the ways in which economics profession has misunderstood the concept and this measure, the concept of value to Elizabeth Warren about her plan to combat the coronavirus. Trust outfit about whether or not Americans societies become decadent. He's evolving great conversations and there are so many more I hope you'll join me every Monday and Thursday to stay informed, and maybe get a sense of hope is well subscribed show on apple podcast, spotify or listening to this right now. So That's our nine. Then Antoine just misses it. Do we agree however begrudgingly? Well I mean if you look at both the guys. Okay, so if you're going to say that you're gonNA, say Tristan. Hill still has some upside. Show anything his rookie year. He's a second round draft pick I mean regardless of cheap labor. You don't have any money in. That's at any right now. You're still going to give them a chance. Even if he doesn't even sound like something. We talked high on the day I went in, but it just seems to me. Maybe maybe he's. He's more committed. Maybe just hopefully he comes in with a different attitude. Because that's what's GonNa have to get my attention and maybe jail. McCoy is a great leader. I mean that that's a underrated element here I. mean you know there's it's no secret that look. We've talked about TYRONE CRAWFORD A lot. After the cowboys lost to Chicago. I think last year there was a report from NFL network that the cowboys were really really really missing veteran leadership especially from tyrone Crawford. Who'd been hurt earlier in the season? So wasn't around I'm I'm willing to. I'm willing to look at Tristan Hill again. It's it's too early for me. If the Taco Charlton got more than a season. You know what I mean like in. Let's let's give Tristen Hill and other year new coaching staff with Jim Thome Soula in I. Just I'm not saying that that turns Tristan. Hill into this amazing player, but I think that that's a fair. The sample sizes too small for me to completely abandoned Tryst Hill right now in the name of Antoine Woods is. A player Antoine has been at times before were. Also, here's the thing when these guys come back. You know what because it hasn't been the Ottoman conventional situation over the last few MOTT's bars training. You know what guys are in shape. WHO's been taken care of south? WHO's been a professional? I think that's going to be an indication also is how the Anton Woods and the Tristan ills. Guys that really really need to be. Showing it. Create an impact and then have new coaches. I agree with that. I. Think that you know maybe last year that they've got a little stale with the Rod Marinelli, and just to hold way he, he coaches a philosophy, maybe but the new coaching change. Maybe that'll change. His demeanor changed. His attitude I don't know I I think that's more of a tendency. When you get the college football that maybe you. You have to change a little bit. You know the ways, and you know your the way you go about your work, but I think certainly it can't. It can't hurt, but really I think that. When you get to this level or J, it's all about an individual's Semaine. How they how they motivate themselves and then? Then the voice that has come from that being the coach made that resonates more all right Tony I'm GONNA make a fancy graphic. When we're done here, so do we agree with the names? Then what are our nine th? These are edge rushers on our fifty three man roster right now. demarcus Lawrence Tyrone, Crawford Alden Smith Bradley Ni- dorrance, Armstrong five edge, rushers and four defensive tackles Joe. McCoy Don -Tario Neville? Gallimore Tristen Hill. That's. A great okay, I'm read on something boom the graphics. Look once. It's a graphic, I mean. It's done. It's locked and loaded forever. Okay? Yeah, I think that that's a. that's a pretty good pretty good start on paper. Realistically, that looks like that should be the nine guys, so make sure to tune in the rest of the show. She on the blog on the boys podcast network all across the rest of the week as we continue to build our collective fifty three. Three man roster the trenches now taking care of both the offensive line and defensive line, Tony I mentioned this and wanted to get your take. Obviously, somebody who's been through the NFL granted not during a pandemic but we are seeing. OPT outs. Happen actually as you and I record we're seeing more and more opt-outs across the NFL and the new, England patriots. Are experiencing their fair share. Well at this point, they have now jumped up to five players again. You and I are talking now. It's almost eleven am central time on Tuesday, but the the New England patriots saw brandon Bolden Marcus Cannon dont`a hightower. Who Doesn't get the credit he deserves. He was one of the most important players in that that super bowl run that they had but we have now seen Patrick Chung. Opt out decide to opt out and I missing one more that that opted out, but they are at five. The New England patriots are so Yeah, that's. The this here I guess happened this morning, Maurice. Kennedy, didn't he is the opt out for the cowboys so that? Was reported on Monday by a line on Tuesday it was reported. Stephen Guidry. I think it's I think it's good. You might be guidry. The! UNDRAFTED Fridge, wide receiver from Mississippi State, on the cowboys roster is opting out as well but a very important distinction again. Lots of information happening are coming out. I saw this probably a recording as well Tom Pella. Sarah fell network reported that undrafted free agent rookies are not eligible for the one hundred fifty thousand dollar voluntary opt-out. Payment. If that was the case and there'd be a ton of undrafted free agencies going it, and declaring that they want to opt out well, and that was. That was kind of what I was going with this because the take has been lose well. Yeah, that's so you know some people are saying. Oh, you're just gonNA. See the guys that were at the end of the roster. That probably weren't going to make the team anyway. They're going to be the ones that opt out so they can guarantee themselves. You know financially. Financially etc, and if that's true for any player, good for him, good for that player, looking out for themselves and looking out for his family, because these are certainly uncertain times but I wanted your thoughts i. mean what would would you look at it that way? I mean you know? Obviously, it's hypothetical on top of hypotheticals you know depending on. You know where a player is in his career, but I mean. How would you look at that if it was a person foremost? I. Look at the this to whole. What they agreed on. And how safe is it to play I think it's really I think you're odds as a young guy. Survive Kobe nineteen. You're GONNA be Great. You're GONNA be fine. But if I'm at the bottom of the food chain, and that being a free agent and my only way to to have any type of securities, the opt out for the hundred and fifty, thousand, or whatever my circumstances are obviously undrafted, free agent, but if you're free agent. then. That'd be motivation I mean. I can't blame someone for taking that option I mean. It's a it's. Something was agreed by the players association with the owners before they for they started, then began this process of continuing the season this year. so now. I have an issue with that. Now New England I mean there are some players that you just mentioned that are impactful. Guys at decide whether they have I know there is you know. A there's there's players have are expecting wives expecting a child. They're going to have a child. It's the best interests that the exposed their child to Kobe nineteen I have no problem with that. The fact that they have an option to be able to. To opt out and pick that type of. Environment or whatever they decide to do. I think it's great for them, but. Look the bottom line is we don't know. What the process is going to be mean week. One with all these players start coming back main. If there's a ton a positive tests, we'll react R. J., I mean we're GonNa it is. We mentioned before the main in March whenever this pandemic started when you mentioned the combine and. It seems to us that it's gotten worse. It hasn't really gotten better, but we. We were speculating that everything was going to be Hunky Dory that we're going to start on time and here we are faced with the unknown, and hopefully the unknown will be, it'll be. This'll be not like baseball, but more in a bubble were geyser in a more accountable for and kind of protect themselves. Themselves, but you know the way they did. the OPT out. I have no problem with that. I think that you have to do what's what's What's right for your family? And what you feel comfortable with now I, completely agree Every player should do what they feel most comfortable with for whatever reason they have. That's good job by the NFL PA for getting them that option. You mentioned I mean back in March I remember. I thought. I thought the Masters was going to go off. You know the masters. It'll be fine like whatever I mean. Everything everything that we thought has just been completely broken and proven to be wrong. But I am I'm just curious for how guys will look at this because to your point. Maybe some guy is on the bubble. BEEN IN THE NFL couple years looks at the situation, says well. They have a lot of guys at my position. Maybe I'm not GonNa Make It let me opt out. Let me. Take you know what what is it? A bird in the hand is better than two in the Bush or whatever Bush a Bushel Bush. But Anyway Sir. The. Reference to because yeah, so anyway, maybe Maybe they look at it that way and that's that's a fair way to look at it. But I think the alternative way to look at is say you know I don't know say I am a defensive tackle right and say well you know to other defensive tackles have opted out bright. Maybe. I'll get more playing time this year. Because other guys are opting out and so maybe you know I can turn that playing time into a big contract. That's going to be worth more. You know what I'm saying like that's that's a very relevant factor like the opt-out can be affecting players in different ways. You know what I'm saying in that players opting out obviously creates opportunities, I mean for for different people think Marcus Cannon. The Patriots starting right tackle is. Is opting I mean. That's a new opportunity for a new tackle, in New England to play, and potentially make his mark, and make his way this entire season, and it depends obviously on each individual player what they value what they're the most comfortable with, but I'm just saying that's that's really interesting to consider. All of the details associated with the APP. Well. Let me put it this way. You're not gonNA, have demarcus Lawrence! WHO's making zillions of dollars often out I'm? The I think that there's concern for the exposed first family and everything when when you sit down, you think about it'd be hard to when you're making fifteen million dollars opt out for one hundred fifty thousand, so I think everything's relative to the situation so I I just. I mean that's no yeah. That is the big pitcher main and so that there's motivation is we just mentioned about? A player doesn't doesn't know if he's even beyond the roster to really just kind of go down that road. I can't blame him for that. It is. We're in some some really unique times. and. it's it's really is amazing. How every corner of our lives is affected. You know what I mean like everything. Everything we do is affected right now. It's nuts, but I started going back to jam, because I got out my pt where I was going into physical therapists, and I graduated from that and kind of more, my independent in rampant up my pt, so I'm going back to the JIM and. And, it's really it's it's totally it's weird how we're having to. Stuff Tech Granite going to the gym and exercising and mask, and I think the best berries highly sanitized, but just evacuate every day you work, we wake up. You gotta put that Mascot. And your thing and wow, this is twenty twenty I never thought that I'd ever experienced like this my lifetime. Let alone my kids lifetime, so it's just really really weird. How How many masks do you have? I got to I. got the one really. Does she pull up? It's it's it's really it's got the demolition in the mouth and. Wanted the legit ones. Yeah, so you pull it up and you pull it down and I got the the other one The regular regular mass at you know the the ones you. Got Two straps. In the years. It's blue. I couldn't breathe out of that and I. Just had that something Nebraska. My wife got a for me and I'm glad she got a form. Because you know, you gotTa make it where it's, it's a feasible and where it's something you can actually breathe. United is and you get claustrophobic and everything but. I I couldn't imagine going into working out our exercise, and when something like that, but the people are crazy i. mean rj you saw. I don't know if you saw on twitter. The lady was pissed off at someone because they didn't wear a mask, so she decided she was going to spray the husband with maize so. You'll be seeing that I have not seen that. There have obviously been a lot of some old ladies. Because you know they're at the park and they're having launch and hello. You GotTa take your mask off to eat or drink right? I will say he wants to spray spray. The you know the husband. That's there she i. mean this is crazy. Man I saw. I don't remember what baseball game was obviously baseball. I just came back, but the video was on twitter. some some coach or manager. Excuse me was upset, so he went out to go confront the umpire. Happens in baseball time, and it was so funny, because like we're were walking towards each other. They were both like masking up and it was. It was just. It wasn't funny, but if it's. Insane. And so like it was. Still a little bit apart and we're. They were still just as animated. Lights. the, though was like was like taking a while like you know. He was like stepping back and waiting to walk while he was like masking up so. One I'll find it out. But I mean so. We will see what happens about. We have our nine guys that we believe will be on the Dallas Cowboys Roster at defensive line So that's that. Any other closing. Thoughts Tony Before we get out of here now I just. Just to the point, we mentioned off the top of our shows. I'm just glad that. Football's back and I think that's the coach. We gotta look at it and just. You know that that glass is half full, and let's move on. And until we were told something differently like every every other day, then we'll just move on and continue to do our job and excited about cowboy football for sure if you get a Neville Gallimore Jersey tweet at a photo. That's I. Find that really cool that you've never heard body Jersey before. Even know what size you were. I don't know it's GonNa look different on my my old. Ask but I'm going to get one. Now will be cool you you. Should you know what you should do? You should once you once you can. You should do the swap with him. 'cause you're literally be swapping the same jurors. Like in it'll, it'll be the same thing just with different names. That'll be cool. I think that's kind of a cool idea. Just we're a little different age gap, but yeah, I think we got to represent I think it's a great idea, and you come up with some great brilliant ideas. I wonder that's why the show so good well. Okay got nothing else to do these days so. Sure besides golf. You still golfing every day. Yeah, we this my closing fat, I suppose. I moved to is is on a golf course so I keep a mask in the golf cart now. and we have We have a league here all the people that live in the neighborhood and so we go out every Wednesday.

Girls Talkin 'Boys: 2020 Draft recap with Jeff Cavanaugh

"What IS UP COWBOYS ATION. Happy Victory Monday. We're going to call it victory Monday because it's the closest thing we'll get to one of these things for a while and quite frankly. I am feeling what the cowboys did this weekend. But before that this girl's talking boys I'm your host Kelsey Charles joined by my co host by lovely co-host Meghan Murray. We have a special guest with us today. You might know him when Jeffrey Cavenaugh from one of our three the fan. Hello Jeff. Don't say hi to me before your Coho says no right. Hey y'all railroaded her on that. It's all good. What's up guys you know? I just like to hear my phone. John guys how we guys have. Rip Rip so obviously a really fun weakened in the books draft day. Three days of it. And I think overall we felt like it was a resounding positive experience and we give this front office really high grade so we'll kind of review just in case you've been hiding under a rock. What went down. We had seven guys that are to be new in the building. Pick seventeen lamb wide receiver from Oklahoma second round. Pick fifty one trayvon digs. Who's a corner from Alabama third pick eighty two Neville Gallimore as head? Cat Defensive? Tackle her new pet cat. From Oklahoma Fourth Round one twenty three Reggie Robinson and other corner from Tulsa and. Then we've got we treat it up for Tyler. Gosh darn it. I don't know how to these already. Oughta BE A senator from Wisconsin from Travis Frederick University Fifth Round once a benign Bradley a night edge from Utah and seventh last but not least been democracy. A great name court quarterback from James Madison. So guys I just love to kind of start off and get your reactions on on really how you felt like this draft went down for the cowboys in overall. Give them a great. Well I'm going to have to give them an A. M I want to give them an A. Plus just based off of like drafts pathogen. How I like. We all get a little frustrated with how they've handled things in the past and this one just felt like a breath of fresh air but honestly a I will give them an A. Plus Oh my. It's my favorite draft. They've had in the six years that I've been studying draft picks I think they nailed it. I think it was awesome. I think I don't want to say. The Corona virus is a positive in any way shape or form but I think the fact that they had a new coaching staff and they had limited access to the players means they had to just trust their scouts entrust will mcclay and they said these are the best players available and Jerry said cool. I'll pick them from a super yet so more on the super yacht later but I really do feel like he needs to be drafting from that yacht every single year if the results are going to be like this but I wanted to touch on what you just mentioned where best player available. That's been a narrative around the team for a while now and it's whether you drafter fit or whether you draft for best player bill when I think in the past we've seen this team draft were fit especially in terms of guys like Taco great example where they fit this scheme they were going to be a Marinelli guy and they went for him and obviously didn't Super Pan out for us and then a Guy. Like cd-rom comes along where A Name Chase was selling the board in technically to need for the cowboys. But the team went ahead and went with the guy who's an outstanding player a total rockstar and went with best player available strategy. I mean do you guys give that credit to McCarthy Building Corona virus you. You kind of mentioned a little bit that you think in is a result or residual of that. But where's your head at well? Okay so Stevens said that will McLeish's MVP. I completely agree with that. But I do think that McCarthy came out and said he was going to focus a lot on bringing in the right guys and not just fit. Something you'd build something around that so. I think that he talked the talk earlier and I think he walked the walk and I look forward to seeing him continue to do that. I think it's a lot easier for the head coach to not push for any individual players when he's a brand new head coach so I think everybody gets credit. I do think this is a draft for. This is kind of dangerous because we. I think everybody loves will mcclay because we picture Jerry Jones as the GM and everybody's like Oh no not Jerry so whoever else it could be. You're like yes that guy he's perfect and Jerry's terrible and we'll try to own some of the misses in recent graphs. But I don't I don't want him to own it because I think it was Rod Marinelli. No stop taking credit for TACO. Will I don't think it was? You stopped taking credit for Tristen Hill. I know that wasn't you so I think we'll McLean the scouts get the credit. But Mike McCarthy get some credit to because Jerry listened to his head coach even if he's brand new. Jerry listens to a lot of different people and so he had guys that he liked could have swayed some pets. Yeah I think he could but I hope that this is a sign that Mike. Mccarthy is true to what he was saying where he's like listen four three three four defense. Whatever this position that position. Whatever Gimme the best players and I'll make it work and then when the best player on the board was. Cd-rom who they. They had no clue he was going to be right. No clue they were stunned and tonight here in the room with everybody basically like hey guys we were hoping chase on would be there and he is. Our plan is kind of on track here. We're good and then somebody's got to go but CDs way up there and somebody goes right but that wasn't our plan and they're like well. Yeah but but he's here so shouldn't we take the best player and they did and they kept doing that. And I GIVE CREDIT TO WILMA. Mclean the scouts for getting them in the right order and for Jerry and Mike McCarthy and Stephen Not Deviating from hey this is the order. You guys have them in this order. We're going to pick them in. So I love that too because we heard after the first round of the press conference the ownership and Coach McCarthy gave. They said they were shocked. All of us I think I think they said they went through six mock drafts and neither of them any of them with CD ever available and so I think that was a really big shock for them but a good surprise. Obviously if you will I mean this guy's going to be a rockstar. I'm so excited to have him on. Team I think he brings that that third wide receiver slot back to life. That you know rent a cop obviously was great and he came in. He's a he's a vet. He's going to do his job. He knows what to do but Kobe Kobe. Really in my opinion owned that position for us for a while and I think he can jump in automatically. Fill that third role. But you have guys like Amari you have guys like Michael Doubt. They can also trade into that slot as well. And so I. The flexibility in the this wide receiver core has a diversity is going to be really really fun to play with. We've got some guests here till I'd like to apologize for my dogs. I have a new dog named CD because it was the best draft pick in history. And he's the cutest so he's the best draft pick in history and so his name is CD and I just like to apologize. And here's back to Meghan to answer. Whatever you said. Thank you so much as add to. There is a everyone was shocked. But I think if anyone was watching you live They saw how shocked. You're your reaction was fantastic. It was one of the best reactions I've seen from this. I think you are more excited than CD's like tell me about that. I didn't have words you can check. I think one. Oh five three. The Fan Dot Com. I'm pretty sure they posted it or check their twitter account. 'cause YEAH. I didn't have words. I was ready leading up to this draft for them to pick a guy that was a reach at a position of need and like the guy to thousands took it sixteen. I thought. Aj Terrell. I thought he was like a second or third round corner and people start talking about. Oh yeah you know if you're wiped out and the guys that you aren't there that might be the guy for the cowboys. I'm sitting here going. You gotta be kidding me. And then CDs there. And I'm like okay. Cds There and I can deal with Caleb on Chason pick and build up to it and telling everybody like you know what they're going to do. They're going to pick the do they were planning to pick. They're not gonNA. They're not gonNA take a gift that fell right in their lap. And so they do. They pick for need. And then they picked him exceeded lamb and I think just giggled. I kinda giggled and chuckled. And put my head on the table just laughed for a while and then eventually. I think I've found words and I think I just said team. Forty Burger lives. So yeah you can say I was happy you could say I was happy enough to name a dog after we have to know we asked day the other day Who originated. Who came up with the phrase? Was it you or dave or someone else. I think that it was at not to be trite on twitter. Buddy Mike White not that my quite the but another Mike White I think and I think I stole it immediately. And so yeah he tweets me all the time and he refers to us as the originators which I think means he came up with it and I stole it and Senate mainstream. If Dave's trying to claim it he might have come up with it. I don't think he's definitely trying to claim it. What did he say maybe he did? I don't know he he was like it was either Mir Jaffa can't remember. Yeah well he was. Kinda trying to share the credit if you will all right so day one starter you think jeff yes CD Yeah Day one starter yet and I think Year two. He's going to be the cowboys best. Receiver which is saying a lot because Amari Cooper is awesome. He's like a top ten ish receiver in the League. And I think we'll be the cowboys best receiver twelve months from now. I think right now. He's starring as the third receiver seedy. Hey CD everybody chill little bit. Thank you yeah so. I think that he starts right away. Obviously and I think it'll be him and Amari Cooper both playing some in the slot and some outside. I don't picture Michael. Gallup is a slot guy so I think they'll figure it out. Co playing the slot to Mario playing the slot. Play a lot of three wide receivers. And Yeah he'll be a starter and then he'll be the greatest draft pick in cowboys history. Ten years from now outside of starbuck starbuck was picked in the tenth round but he also found out like three days later in a newspaper. 'cause I'm pretty sure. He was deployed when he found out that he was picked. So yes CD. Lamb will start so D- Opinions on the number situation. I we haven't gotten official word yet. Ten eighty eight David drought seventeen. I kinda loved that too I was. I was good with that. Do you think they would honestly give eight upright now they WANNA give him? Ada Jerry's campaigning for him to wear Ada so we talked to CD after he was picked and he said I'm rocking ten. I know that's what I heard it. I and I was like. Oh my gosh and then Jerry. After the first round at his press conference was like let me tell you a really long story about my friend named Jerry. His last name was lamb. I think his first name was jerry but his last name was lamb and he wore eighty-eight at Arkansas. While Jerry was area passed away recently. And he's like. I really want CD to where which is very guilt. Trippy Jerry in honor of my friend. I want CD to wear eighty eight and carry on the tradition. And I'm like yeah I could see CD rock in the eighty eight but pick no you get to pick your number. You don't get to peer pressure. My guy in Iraq and Ada. Let's go where he wants to wear surprised when he came on your show and said that he was going to be rocking ten because as someone who previously had experience Around the equipment department. I don't think they have a number secured for him concrete. We just yet so when he came on it was like I'm wearing ten. I'm like what how like. Hey if you want afford your own half of number ten like I'm cool with that to like make ten the next specimen history. I'm here for a legacy of tens are eight so CD was a good pick. Everyone super excited about him. I think it's an obvious were high on that pig. What about out of the rest of the guys? Who's your favorite pick? The cowboys made all of them almost all of them. I know nothing about the quarterback from James Madison option. D I know nothing about the NUCCI But I did spend the last hour of the broadcast looking his tweets because he said something about Romo being terrible at some point when he was like fifteen. I just feel like he should have had foresight. Actually apparently he met with McCarthy when he came down here for the FCS championship and his dad or his brother is his basketball coach. And I'm like Bro. You like look a lot of our prospects did a really good job of wiping their social media and I respect that but his agent or whoever it was probably thought he was undrafted. Free agent material. Maybe they didn't let go that deep into it and here we are the quote is Tony. Romo is absolutely horrible and yeah well. That's much like deck deck had an anti Romo tweet in his past. That came out as soon as he became a cowboy. So it's a tradition like none other. Whoever gets drafted to the cowboys at place quarterback blasts Romao? The good news is I went through his entire history. Signed up for twitter and early two thousand fourteen and I read through it all nothing else. Bad in there Just the Romo shot fired. He really liked his girlfriend when he was fifteen. Yeah he was a big Fan of hers. I don't know what happened. Hurt looks like her account isn't maybe it has a new handle but last name it doesn't link to it anymore. I don't know Trevan digs trayvon digs. Stop SAYING TREVAN. Trayvon digs fifty at fifty. One was an awesome pick. Because again I promise you that was the top guy available. Their top guy on their board very top like it wasn't what do we need all of this time? It worked because they did need a corner and they got two guys in the first two picks that they really thought they wouldn't have a shot at I thought trayvon digs might end up being the picket seventeen if they lost chase on and and CJ Henderson and the top three receivers and Giovan. Ken Law than I thought there was a decent shot. Trayvon digs was going at seventeen and I think they were standing made it to fifty one folly. Think some teams corners. Hard to figure out because everybody all of them are so different like Aj trail went. Sixteen from Clemson. I think trayvon digs is better than him. I have no doubt about it. I think he's better than him. But teams see these guys. Different ways teams value different things and they got. They got lucky with their first. Pick to get lucky with their second. Pick I'm good with the third pick. I don't love it like I love. The I two Neville Gallimore. I like him. Don't love him. Sell Harry Potter make loves already. I'm the opposite. I love him. We're going to get your because of Neville longbottom honestly. Yeah like he could be the Neville Longbottom for you like he comes out of nowhere and all of a sudden he like casts a spell and saves the day like you don't know he could be. Our undercover hero was never the one that ended up killing the snake. What we're saying. Good job I novel so okay. Good beyond beyond the center will know eight. Skip to pick Reggie Robinson the Tulsa corner again. I think they got so according to me. They got like six best player in the draft at seventeen. They got somewhere around the twentieth. Best player in the draft at fifty. One this is kind host of the show. Podcast in two thousand fifteen is what he was most afraid of a pandemic respiratory flu. He told me we're living in his nightmare so I had back on the show to ask him. What his he learned. What do all of us need to learn? How far are we from a vaccine? And what does he hope for society on the other side of this crisis? What do we need to do to build something better in? Its aftermath glistened our conversation by subscribing to guess or Klein show. Wherever you get your podcasts. Hey everyone it's Jimmy model on the host feed run a new show on qube produced by the team at Polygon. Speed gives you your daily dose of the biggest gaming and entertainment news every weekday. We'll give alice if the latest video games and highlight some of the best of the gaming community will cover everything from the twenty year evolution of action role playing games to the breakout success of riots. New valent for stories like this and much more download the APP to watch new episodes of speed run every weekday at eighty two was gal more and I probably had him as somewhere between the fiftieth and sixtieth best player. So still you're way ahead of the game there Reggie Robinson I would have his top one hundred player. They got him at what one twenty to give her one. Twenty three and then the center from Wisconsin beyond which I had as a third or fourth round or they picked him at the end of the fourth. So that's good value Bradley and I the Utah Defensive End Edge. Whatever you WANNA call it. They got him in the fifth round. I had him in the third so they killed it up and down the board. They killed it. The cowboys won Super Bowl. If you want a super bowl by drafting actually when I talk about that for a minute because obviously this team did a great job. In my opinion in the first couple rounds picking the best player available but also they managed to address their needs outside of Safety Corners D. Line. Why receiver was was position to. They could use some help that they they kind of checked the boxes in all of the regards but I think the big thing that I keep on hearing out of this is the value that they got to you. Keep on saying these guys that you you felt. They were better than where they were drafted at Also looking at some of the compensatory picks the day they they dealt with with the with the Wisconsin Guy Either. They traded up with Philly which is kind of weird itself but they trade next year's fifth because in their minds they were thinking compensatory that are going to be pretty good about four of them for next year. So this evens out I mean I just love the fact that they're even thinking in that regard to today they'll have extra next next year because of all the free agents say lost like They're gonNA get a nice pick for Byron Jones. Maybe in the third round. They'll get a pick for Robert Quinn. Probably in the fourth could be as high as a third and Just off the top of my head I mean I know that I'm already missing a couple but yeah they're gonNA have four extra picks so if there's a guy that you like and you want to go get him and it costs you your fifth next year. You're probably not worried about it because you're like all right. I'm GONNA have an extra pick at the end of the third an extra pick at the end of the fourth and maybe a couple extra picks at the end of the fifth. So why not go get the guy you like? I don't know they needed to do it for beyond I don't know I like. I don't think he's going to start for them. I don't think he's better than Connor McGovern play. Because you have some interesting Joe leany connor McGovern Connor Williams situation at hand. Where looney obviously we know he can play center. Williams has taken some snaps at center when they drafted him. Mcgovern was a draft pick. Last year. We know left guard is lockdown. We're not worry about that right. Guard starting right guard. Yeah my bad. If I guess I would say left Guards Connor Williams center is Connor McGovern and Joe. Loonies a backup but if JOE loonies backup then be out issues. Kinda stuck. It's like what am I doing? So maybe McGovern's up as the left guard and they want Connor Williams to be the swing everything. Use the left tackle at Texas. He's played guard for them. And then maybe it does become the starting center. I don't think he's a better player than what they have but he also dealt with injuries this year. Us three year starter at Wisconsin and he paved the way for Jonathan. Taylor run for like seven hundred million yards so seven million give or take she must have been insane So I guess with him. My answer is we'll see. I don't know we surprised. They went with old line because again like they have some options there and it seemed like from what. I was hearing that that it was. It was really coach. It was so high on him and Jerry was like well on Friday he. He decided he wanted to find a way to get him and then they even said they traded up the he wanted this guy. No Dang it I do this. Sometimes I forgot the question Well are you surprised at what with? Oh line kind. I didn't know if they would or not going into the draft because I I didn't think they were going to pick a guy that would be better than what they have and I still don't. They might disagree with that. Which would make sense with why they traded but either way the only thing they didn't address is safety in the draft that they probably would have liked to insult. Get good depth at offensive line. You've got the best wide receiver core in the League. You've got corners that are locked in for four years to replace guys. They're gonNA leave next year. I did a great job and I'm not. I'm not down on the pick. I just don't know how it plays out. That's why was he record league. Even though Philly was making some trades trying to make some moves at some speed it felt like yeah but philly. They hate alshon Jeffery. They want to run out of town. He wants out of town. Igor left but they don't care about tax they hated and not that I blame them. -Cause Philly it's just philly. Yeah I think the cowboys for three wide receivers. The three that'll be on the field. They have the best receiver core in the League. Like Tampa got two really good ones. There's other teams that have two really good ones but three deep. I don't think you can do better than Cooper CD. Lamb and Michael Gallup can't do to eleven hundred yard receivers and the best receiver in the draft. Get Out of here. It's GONNA be awesome. I keep on saying this but I watched I watched CD at the textile you game. And he's Insane. He's insane and it's so fun to watch him play I think Damon his scouting report says in his draft guide. Which again I know. The draft is over. But if you guys don't have this it's the best resource I. I didn't study the draft as much as like a guy like jeff and it brought us and K T in Dane. David Hellman obviously did but this is just such an invaluable resource for me and it's A wealth of knowledge but anyways You know he I think he says that the best in the sky where he says he plays bigger than what he actually is. And the best way I kept on being able to describe it was when he would catch the ball. It's he defenders will bounce off of him. I mean it's just impressive and it's going to be exciting to say the least so he's six one one ninety eight at the combine and bigger than he is a hundred percent accurate. I think of it as best description. He plays like six three to fifteen. He's so hard to tackle the lower body power the balance the ability to go up and get the ball. You would you. I was before I got deep into the study when I was watching CD. If you'd have told me that guy is six one and one hundred ninety one hundred ninety five pounds. It'd been like you're a liar. I've watched him run through. So many tackles watched him moss so many people that did six three to fifteen. And he's he's a monster and he's going to be a monster and that's why my dog's name CD the end. Thank you to our podcast. Very cute So Mag you've been pretty high on the corner. I know I know Neville is good as well but You like him cornerback. Wise though it was a need for us I feel like he's coming in obviously be able to compete for a starting job. He has some pretty strong famous bloodlines though. Trayvon DIGS MINNESOTA miracle over here. Yeah that'll be really fine. I mean he did play. He has a history of playing wide receiver in the past. So I smell a lot of interceptions. He's got good ball tracking skills. I mean we've been needing that like that's the turnovers were lacking the last couple of years. So hopefully he can come in and make an impact in that regard in really like change pace of a game We were worried about that. We were team forty burger. Yes here for that but also let's let's play a little keep away. I love else. Al Harris The d-backs coach came on your show. I think it was jeff and said he was saying you know listen. My goal in this draft is to find is they're they're long and he wants big corners. Trevan on and honestly I love it because he kept on saying like listen. You have to adapt to the guys that you're GonNa be defending in these. These wide receivers are getting bigger and better and stronger and faster. And we can match that How confident do you feel in in the two in the pair they picked up to be able to hold their own? I Love Them. I think that I don't know what's going to happen in your one. Trayvon digs doesn't start as a rookie. I'm totally cool with that. Because you've got three guys starting experience you've got cheeto. Anthony Brown Jordan Lewis to other contracts are at the end of the year so I think the corners are law. Our long-term picks you'd love for Trayvon index to show up in training camp and make you bench one of them. That'd be great but I also don't think that it's that big of a deal because he's only played corner for three years but still he was already so good in man coverage at Alabama He's a really good player that I think is going to become a really great player as he gets pro coaching and getting a year of experience under his belt and Reggie Robinson is the same thing he measured more athletic than I think. A lot of people thought he's in the ninety percentile of NFL corners when it comes to athleticism in the league. So he's athletic. He's big he's long. And he had production both intercept the ball and bat and balls down at Tulsa. And so I just. I think they've got great value and I think they've got guys that a year from now can both be starters for the next three years of their contracts so they picked off in the first round numbers. Like Oh my God what are you? GonNa do about the defense and the answer was well. We're going to pick four guys. It really great values that can probably be starters in the NFL. So that's how they killed it. Let's see I plus which is good because Jordan have contracts. That are expiring next year. So to get these guys in the door now is important and you're out what you're what you're lineup's going to be in if you be worrying about bringing Louis or cheeto back the that's exactly what they did with cheeto and Jordan Lewis when they drafted them they knew we have to remake the second. We do it quickly and they have to do it again. We won't mention safety because Xavier Woods is going into the last year of his deal and ha ha Clinton. Dick signed a one year deal so they have not at safety actually mentioned that Jeffrey. Oh sorry because Meghan one over here is very upset that one Jeff. Heath is gone from the team now. Yeah I've been saying and I will say he just always showed up in random moments when you need it most the goat the goat I yes. I think he's a better player than he ever got. Credit for and a worse player than the people who joke around and referred to him as the goat probably worse than that but he's probably a better player than he gets credit for and he's a great special teams player but I think there comes a point when a guy has been in the League for so long that they're even their minimum salary gets to a certain point where you say. I kinda replace him with a rookie. He's not really starting caliber at safety. And how much am I gonNA pay for a special teamer so I think at some point you've got to move on from guys like that and it was time? I'm GonNa get you thought. Sign the concept of some of these corners potentially sliding over into the spy based on the guys that they drafted and based on the guys on the roster right now. What are some names? You thicker viable for that position. So I've heard people talking about. Could you do that with Cheeto? And I think that is the name that would make sense because in college he played kind of nickel corner. Sometimes he was outside sometimes he almost was that a safety spot and I think in a vacuum. He could do that especially considering. He hasn't probably lived up to expectations as a second round. Pick who's been starter and maybe that is good enough but I don't I wouldn't do it because first of all you're talking about guys going in the last year of their deal. So why are we gonNA move them around and force rookies into the lineup? I think you just you just go to camp. You play ball and you see what happens. I wouldn't move anybody because the NFL. You need five good corners really. Somebody's GonNa get hurt. And a Lotta Times you'll be playing four of them at a time so I think I wanNA have at least five that I can trust to play. And I think they're right around there if Reggie Robinson's ready otherwise it cj Goodwin or Maurice Candidate. And I don't know about all that but no I don't move anybody so we've talked a lot about how the cowboys did in their draft I think we give them passing grades more than passing grades across the board Jeff what about the other teams in the NFC East? I mean I know. You've kind of been paying attention to that more than most. I would say Philadelphia's one that comes to mind but how do you think those teams did? Should we BE CONCERNED AND Yeah they so phillies fans I know hated their graphs and so I love that the Philly Fans WanNa just in Jefferson the lsu receiver and the Eagles took Jalen Reagan out of Tcu. In the first round I actually liked Reagan better than Jefferson so I thought they made a good pick. Their phenomenal actually watched him work out. A couple of months ago with the D. Rob and it was insane like he's a beast beast. Yeah it took. Jalen hurts in the second round which I saw. Oh my God. Philadelphia went bonkers. I saw people like sorry Carson. Sorry to hate you dude. This is dumb stupid. And it's like well Carson's GonNa miss five to eight games a year so you have somebody who can go in some football games and Jalen hurts makes sense in that regard a guy who can use his legs and throw the ball. Just it makes more suit Davey on Taylor Colorado linebacker in the third round for Philly. I really like the player. He didn't play high school football. He Played One game of high school football. He was a he was a seventh day. Get this wrong adventists. Adventists adventist adventist so sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. You don't do the physical activity or the sports or I'm sorry I don't know enough about the that particular belief system and I love you all if you're listening. So he played one game high school football and then he went to Colorado and you can tell he's inexperienced reason incredible athlete Philadelphia. I will give a B minus the giants Andrew. Thomas Number four overall seemed a little bit early but I get it for your starter. Georgia's savory came in the second Washington Chase Young's great Antonio Gibson's good player and Tony Agana golden the fourth. I'm going to give Washington A. B. minus giant. Everybody gotta be minus than the cowboys got. Plus the cowboys win. Bad News is. The Eagles had a better team coming into the draft. And so I don't know if your favorite for the division draft. Did you see any of the hallmark like Jason Garrett fingerprints on the giants at all the pick two offensive linemen and Garett loves? Turn on the ball. So sure that could be his fingerprint guys. Let's give to saquon eight hundred times. Who run for three yards and will lose seventeen to six every week CD. What can we talk about what your plan is doing? So maybe the answer is maybe all right well. I think we're getting some questions on twitter so we want to make sure we ask all of us. Those made you have few throw out to us. Yeah James she or ski sorry wanted to know how many players will start a game at some point. Next season providing their civil. And what do you think? How many rookies from the Cowboys Star? Game CD WILL START GAMES. I will say Trayvon digs will start games Never Gilmore will not start games. He'll rotate with Gerald McCoy. Mccoy will be the starter. Reggie Robinson I will say will not start games. Tyler is the tough one. Can He win the center job? I'M GONNA say no barring injury. He Will Not Start Games and Bradley in the Fifth Round. The Wild Card because I think that depends on Alden Smith and Randy Gregory and you tyrone Crawford who will probably take snaps it end. Let's get an update on that all day in Randy Alden. Probably sooner than Randy is what I've heard. But you have sixty days from when you file for. Reinstatement so the answer to that is. I don't know but I will say only two guys of the rookie class are GonNa Start Games. But I don't care because a year from now that answer might be five well and that leads me into my next question So if both of them are reinstated. Then who is who are you? More excited about this is from Brandon Snyder so I will go gregory mostly because he's younger and I think that Randy Gregory can literally get outta bed and do what he does. Which is be hyper athletic. And turn the corner and sacked quarterback all Smith. I'll be excited about. But he's also what three years removed from the NFL and creeping up at like thirty now and so a little more excited about Gregory but the idea of having both of them is. Oh my God. I'll pick them to win the division. If you promise both of those guys play sixteen games I honestly I mean for me I. Gregory Gregory is a guy that everyone has been so excited about. How big but he's quite. Frankly I would still consider him pretty unproven. And while he is a freak in has all this natural ability. I would love to see him. Put it together on the field consistently Alden Smith. Yeah he's being were proven but like you said. He's three years removed from actually selling on the field so Deputy some wild cards. But I feel like that's where the cowboys strive. They're good at that they're good. They like taking those risk. It's I think it's the it's the land man. Jerry you know just loving to go out and take a ticket on something if you will so I think they'll play out. I mean speaking about taking bets on people. I don't know if you've gotten a chance to look at the undrafted. Free agent signings. Is there anyone that you can see making the team? They almost got Courtney Davis the receiver and if they did. I think he would have made the team. Initially they had said that he was a cowboy but then likings came in and gave one hundred thousand dollars guarantee or something like that. Yeah so they guaranteed him more money than seventh rounders so yeah actual contract. Basically you made the right decision. They're not going to give you a hundred grand guaranteed and not. Have you make the team? Probably so he made the right decision. I'll have to get their full list of them. I know there's a safety from Illinois state named Luther Kirk that was at the Shrine Game All Star game in college and I believe he was a defensive. Mvp and he plays safety a position. Where the cowboys are short right now. So that may give him a shot to make a team and on a future podcast. I'll give you the scouting reports on all their undrafted free agents. They don't have the list in front of me. Dang it next question. Is which quarterback? Did you see moving over to safety? Answer would be. Cheeto but my answer is none. That's my answer. We kinda kick that around earlier. I just don't think it makes sense to move a guy when he's in the last year of his deal. Anyway you want to get the best out of him and I don't think that involves moving into a new position unless you get into camp and Trayvon digs incredible and you're like Oh God you start and Anthony. Brown is playing really well in your call. There's starter and Jordan Loses Roy Williams their star and cheetos playing terrible. And you're like all right so he's not gonNA play. Then if you wanted to say Dong around with say Dong around on the podcast and then if you wanna around with that fine but I would just leave everybody alone. See what happens is safety. They brought a guy in for one year. They're GONNA have a lot to do with their safeties next year but for now let people play Jerry mentioned Robinson too though. That was a guy that he said. That might be able to go over an okay. That would be interesting. Yeah he's got the Sun. It's weird though because usually corners more valuable than safety so if you draft to corner the Byron thing. That's why I never made sense. Because he was he was he saw his last year at uconn. He was a corner. He's really good. He plays safety before that at Uconn to play both. But if you thought a guy could be a good corner put him in safety corners more important if you can take away their best receiver go. Is it more important? Yes I think so I think Because if you get a really good one then you have him travel with the other teams best receiver or you the bell check and have him travel with the team second best receiver and double team their best receiver. I just I think it gives you a better opportunity to shut down an opposing offense then a safe. Do you know there's exceptions to this rule? Ed Reed I'll I'll take him over any cornerback in his day. He's okay Jamal Adams I'll take over most corners but generally speaking. That's why would you do the way you figure out. What's more important? Is You look up each position? And the highest the highest earning players corners make more than safety. Jamal Adams narrative dead. Yes check in with me around week. Five or six because around week. Five or six. If you're getting bad safety play and the jets are one in five. That might be revisited. icy. I have one over here to from Brian Stem. He wants to know. Guys who has more touchdown next year? Cooper Gallup and CD or deck in zeke rushing touchdowns receiving rushing Zico prior rush for about twelve deck will probably rush for about six. I think he does six literally every year. So that'll be eighteen. Maybe nineteen or twenty on the top in their cooper will have nine or ten Gallup will have six or seven lamb of six or seven receivers. Okay receivers may if. I had to guess who had the most. I think I'm going to go with coup. Just goes down him or so comfortable together. I think them all mixing around will open things up but I think that's his tried and true at the moment so if I had to guess who had the most out of all of them that would be my guess. I think I'M GONNA go with receivers as well. I mean I I think obviously I run games really productive but you know. We heard that we heard they coach and Kellen Moore met on Saturday in. We're already wrinkles was the word that was used which is such a way of putting it but the. I think they're they're scheming of ways till till use these new guys in there to mess with everyone said. Kellyn has reason to be excited. So I'm here for okay. This is my favorite question. We've gotten this far. James wants to know does bend Look like Country Music Star. Sam Hunts twin or what he does is the answer. I don't know what I don't know. Sam Hunt looks like and I've only seen bend NUCCI picture once and I already forgot what he looks like. So I'M GONNA GO WITH. Yes as well okay. Yeah I definitely think he does. It's going to be I guess for me. I doubt he has the same pipes. But you know it's bad. He has an arm. Yeah will allow it. He said around the table. God doesn't give with all of the hands you know aright while who's fun you guys Obviously again as you can hear. We're really excited about the cowboys. Bringing to the table from the draft this year a pluses all around Jeffrey. I think with an a plus plus so Really excited about how we're GONNA see these guys leverage. He went to get them in the door. Obviously they're going to be doing some remote training we'll see how that plays out and how they actually start to onboard these guys. But I'm sure we will have some interesting storylines to watch throughout this offseason. But if you love Jeff as much as we could catch him on one eight hundred the fan on back nation every weekday to to seven. Pm Central Time Zone but look at my youtube page thanks. Oh yeah here's ut page what's the UT page YouTube dot com slash shift cavenaugh? Things subscribe give him thumbs up. Do comments help to you. I have no idea okay. Well comment to probably.

"The performance and a comeback win over the Cleveland Browns. But Wilson isn't the only quarterback carrying his team to a great start this year to Shawn Watson helped pull off a huge win over Jay Don Buckey Brookshire back. It's moving cleaver Russell Wilson has the hawks off to a five and one start after pretty comparable numbers through the first six weeks. The Wilson is just edging out Watson in most major categories are the questionnaires who is no interceptions zero zero he plays the game as such a cerebral ways so smart states within his skin and Jeff Watson because I think people are just catching up to the Shawn Watson story I think this year with his comments and the post game press conferences where he shows his football intellect after every game I think people are going to catch on to this story have told him and start really same one whose leading it right now Russell Wilson like that gap right there is all you need last year we saw petre holes and drew brees and we saw that same gap and we were like tough story to close this gap as well because certainly about a numbers Russell Wilson only four of quarterback in history to go out there and I six games one hundred plus quarterback rating and if he can do what he's doing ice to San Francisco what he's done to the League thus far you gotta go with Russ listen but if the Shawn Watson always going to win the MVP not just based on now but who is going to win the MVP Shawn Watson a Russell Wilson if you had to bet today he needs it for his resume and so people are into story damaged Russell Wilson's having this incredible season let's give him the MVP he may not there's more to work with his if you say yes daffy Andre Hopkins Willfuller Kenny Stills Tyler Lockett Decay Metcalf well let's let's go with the story of Ju- Breezy Number One and tried to go there and it wasn't enough to close that gap and I don't think Shawn Watson despite his greatness there's going to be they just lost her tied in different like look at this this was normally worse most outstanding flare it'd be Russell Wilson based on what he's done most valuable player is going to be to sean listen to Sean Watson's value to the Texans his ability to get them over the top we talked about an earlier block we expect a Texas to be right there with the Patriots at the end and to topple them as out of harm's way this one if is just stays pat I don't see how Shawn Watson closes this gap well if Shawn Watson and the Houston Texans they do what the you pick the top three receivers you're gonNA probably go off three to Houston receiver so does Shawn Watson has more to work winning if they play how you think they're going to play it's a no brainer to Shawn Watson GonNa win CBS position again to Shawn Watson younger however having said if it doesn't go well as your San Francisco if they don't win their division I feel he provided him the week before but let's not act like that game wasn't right there in the balance at the end and Patrick Mahomes could easily won that game we have a different conflict wet logs it is it's easy to Shawn Watson is GonNa win it Russell Wilson is leading the race right now he has yet to play San Francisco and when you play that team that defense so Wilson is TJ point he's got to play San Francisco and that defense twice I think Russell Wilson's going to win it and the reason why is migrated I'm certainly not trying to denigrate Patrick mahomes eighty by before a young kid I just think history is going to get better and better he can do things with his legs he Mitchell trubisky was drafted ahead of Wasser and Pat Mahomes which is ridiculous when you go back about it and then pat mahomes strikes like wildfire MVP is everything on the on the table for him but he utilizes those parts intelligently rather than some guys that just lean into their running ability highest paid and being a great quarterback is the story of the Legion of boom and them leaving him and he didn't mean to say I could do this all by myself on this I story how great you have ep did you hear a rustling what happened yesterday what Russell Wilson had said highland y'all didn't think I could I'm more than capable I mean I like it but I still think this Shawn Watson is the Guy I think when you talk about the story remember now he called the entire merce drive game he said I couldn't hear anything so I just called the plays on a first round they went down the field and scored so his intellect is if his team is planted love with emerged as the heavyweight in the AFC does that wasn't GonNa win the award votes are before the playoffs so who knows ends into play also but yea the rest of it I think it's probably eight is on par with the shine Wasser but I'm just too in terms of story and if you watched this dude yesterday in me home I know you taking bucky you got Cam Right Cam Newton I thought you want to replace taken a lot of heat for going after Maury who he said was misinformed on the issues but yesterday when the Brown was asked if he planned to learn more about the Hong Kong situation and array lists yeah you're GonNa play the Patriots the Patriots right that could swing some volt all the time defense planning all the time we've got a chance to see both those guys on the field you compare them to the Super France one being bad men would be in Superman I think the appreciation for Shawn Watson skills his overall quarterback you wanna knows his time clock a lot of other guys getting enter to not always translate those but that's the problem with this I play we've seen him be the villain after the decision and going to Miami and that didn't go the greatest I don't think Lebron works most so he made it clear he just wants to shut up dribble on being a captain and win a championship which leads me to my opinion this is my concern Lebron James actively efficiently unless he's planning from a place of joy he does not like being the villain I actually think this controversy and the kind of I'm in Kansas City and will fuller was point shaving today damn near don't do this Russell Wilson Wilson has a greater store and beyond would he did it to line and screw it was Peyton manning this I watch a lot of football a lot of times I don't see Tom Brady doing all that and he does I'm sure he does I'm not trying to long has lost but he's in a discussion he just behind to all right now we started team who you taking game and now when you throw in the intellect I think that could be enough to push him over top if he gets the big win in December over the Patriots Y'all stop Russell Wilson I need to do what he intended to do when he came to la which is gotta get the Lakers back restore the purple and go finish my legs tale for six this weekend are now hit the Jackpot with thirty four fans walked away Richard as we if that's failure in Dyla- woods middle circumstances I wonder what success is so I think that this is a guy who's going to be fully motivate do whatever that mental space is in terms O- they're not all applaud into king and lap two year more versed da to deal with it and let's just be now for big story and let's return to Lebron James WHO's comments on Darrow Maury and China have reignited the controversy over the NBA's relationship with the Communist Country Lebron has we know space jams coming out we know the seventies all that stuff is answer Larry to the core issue of Lebron reestablishing the Lakers and himself as king some guys leaning into throwing this students using all of his tools very intel yes yes yes he's using all will handball off Carlos high go get it that he will even be labeled as Deville in this respect I think some people look at them sideways so may think disingenuous a fraud but you gotta understand this will be lapped too oppa Smith's he's done all that he's accomplished everything I mean he mentioned that when he signed with the Lakers and so right now it's all about getting the champs trying to get something for about the same time rolling that's GonNa go on over social media and in NBA Arenas could impact Lebron's performance this year I don't think so at all I don't think is there he's more mature Christie said when he was in Miami he didn't know how to win yet he didn't know how to win in regards to a championship in the NBA. He learned that he experienced history but we're going to get over this he's been through worse Jim before you go out and only thing I'm GonNa just push back here if you go look at the farmer the off strong on the court and that didn't go as planned as advertising your one he's locked in we know a son's in high school now balling out of control believing that this dude is the smartest guy plan quarterback right the smartest he's just a one stand longest in the press conference we do payment when things come up during the season that they want him to talk about how to reevaluate high answer those questions so it's an whole learning process so I do think this is a left politically this is what they do they eat their own if you show any sign of weakness they come for your head Lebron I don't think it'll impact the season at all look Lebron is in a much more mature place right now I was in Miami he was still trying to find his legacy reached those I think what they'll do is probably give them a little bit more fire to get the Lakers to a championship to be able to prove that he can do at this age okay but I think it also is going to give him pause there's been people that fought that Lebron what he did was it really real so for them it kind of validates that point but I don't think it impacts the season from this perspective his or hooked up to social media than Lebron James and that's where this war is going to be conducted and I will side with you all if Lebron goes one getting the Lakers back to the championship to also figuring out from a man perspective who I am as a leader how do I handle situations moving forward more deli on shoulder sign of weakness I think there's media there's going to be a consistent media group attacking Lebron but they been attacking the Brian is consistency zero dark three sixty five and that's a year let me get up off this social media deal because to me social media helped talk him into this one of those defining moments in the bronze career on and off the court what he does how he handles this situation because in the Miami and put him in this position but if he remains active on social media I just think mentally it's going to hurt him yeah I mean he has to relation he was still young and probably didn't handle it the right way in regards you I'm GonNa take on this villain role now he's more mature has the family now I I'm very interested because were he's at an known him since he's been in high school the next step in the next chapter because this is the beginning for next chapter so I do think this year is to stop the exchange in terms of internalize in social media attributes because he's not the biggest on social media as an athlete Cristiano Renaldo Want to know it looks like it is was basketball you know it's play he's played a high level Lakers a plan to high level in expectation is forgotten because there's still going to be a rough patch in a row kinsley okay then kind of speaking off the cuff only the only thing that I think is different to jaw underestimating is no athlete is more and I think that was the shared experience they had the work out there looks and then after that they did so what Lebron is facing now is completely different from those things this is the only question and so even though again he's not the primary culprit Nike to me is Adam silver they're the primary culprits and should be grilled you would him being vilified Miami and the decision was unintended coincidences which is a man. It's the first time I've been in the finals would I do find comfort in my own privacy knowing I'm not the biggest culprit oak that may be true but he's in the position and this is where athletes are in really goes back to what we said in the last segment about is the salvageable all he has news play basketball right now he's still you know you talk about the fawning they'll give him comfort at night when he went through the decision he had to take all that heat all of that weight was on the Bronx he actually designed to decision that fell flat an unfair position Daryl Morey doesn't have to talk to the press once a month a year who knows Adam silver gets dictate five six times a year I'll meet with the media Lebron Eighty two games both practice sessions constantly ask question after question perfect role model okay I want somebody to get some floor somebody but then there's somebody that recognizes those flaws and improve on that okay because nobody rather so I think there's GonNa be some comfort y'all hate is displaced is really for multiple people but IAGO look at me 'cause I'm the biggest name biggest face I'll take that never been in his situation is rarely we have athletes that come around with the pressure that he has to live on on a daily basis easy for me to say what he should you're kidding do can dictate to social media or you can start to receive some of its values and I think that's the lines got blurred for Lebron what happened to me not feud oh we kept Kretschmer hose on the sideline out for forty minutes Oh yeah that's the way to do it and this show is a marvellous game plan it to some this one there are more recent that tweet and then Adam silver didn't take proper cover and then I'm out here trying to take it for for everyone else in the NBA has all understand why penrose names now even in this we already got bored with that you know the one loss again Mr you download the super six play for free for a chance to win Jim Jackson and Chris Anes back and again I'm not saying this is a criticism saying this is just a reality of that type of upbringing it takes a little bit longer for you to have those foundational pieces true co starred Dwayne Wade think about it when he was there in Cleveland you couldn't rely on shock and Mo Williams in the same respect as the broad day when he got to debate first year look at it and it numbers are not wide enough where you say oh I'm GonNa go take guy they're all gonna take you but I'm not living in his shoes every day I have a question can you be consider won't domestically and walked about it the first time he had to do with it he had an amazing first year they just lost the championship he had his worst stretch and finally then they won the championship shit they went back to the minos straight but they do to take those hits let me say this it's interesting because we're on this panel talking about what we think the bronze should do media in all of that they're still going to be there you know they're still going to be there all of well Chris go settles we played in the League I was famous but I'm not Lebron James Hey I don't know what he goes through the pressure that he has to deal with okay I don't want rounder to Jacksonville which means that dating back to two thousand seventeen the team is set to go five straight seasons without a first round pick question here is live in China this is my point of view applies to China and here at home Moore Brown I think is just grasping those things and I don't say that to diminish him in and so there's things that my parents instilled in me particularly my grandmother instilled in me that my point of view doesn't change I put the same all of this bringing like I had to highly involved parents I think you guys had the same exact he didn't have that and so identity emme way situation I've been born in the same situation I think I would be having the same struggle and I'm not trying to eight and at the same time this probably won't fix their problems their problems are up front offensive line issues this team six worse chiefs in Kansas City yesterday and has Houston atop the AFC south at four and two both of these guys are putting themselves in the early MVP running with minutes Lebron anyway I just think this situation is going to be very tough and it could impact is performance on the court whitlam m`Sila desperate with this Ramsey move yeah they do and I think there are two mutually exclusive things happening right now one this was a great trade making a flurry of roster moves yesterday headline by their trade for Disgruntle Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey Ellison two first rounders any force large so we're masking some issues but I played in a way Phillips Defense we were number one ranked defense in NFL when we had some limited assets on offense wait doc and widely joined now by Fox sports NFL analyst Mark Slater and Bucky Brooks I let's move to the rams who clearly weren't satisfied after that embarrassing loss to the forty niners you know because and this is where I think this is a learning experience for Lebron that he needed to go through Lebron didn't have a traditional in terms of run blocking and second to last and turn the pass blocking last time I checked Ramsey not about the strap up and put it on extra hundred and fifty pounds it can all be three to can you can you have tough that's tough to do you have your own lane that you stick with it to be on that island in man coverage I think right now the gamble the desperation risk is we're going to let our defense lead this team while we're having it says you know what let me see let me say my will my soul blitzes let me get my linebackers involved in his pass rush help Aaron Donald out corners y'all on island and I need games defensively I was right there with all of you on fought hey desperate trait good tree and then I read Dion Sanders is comments and also I wou player I did their game last week and one of the big issues continuity on the officer side of the ball one of the things that I think that oftentimes gets taken for granted six percent of the time last year and now the teams are playing them a bit different and their offensive line is struggling you go back and watch the film how much Sean McVeigh gives you the illusion of complexity and then he crams it down your throat running game they are a three wides team that ultimately won maker on the island when we talk about right now what they need they need to fix the offensive line jalen Ramsey won't help that but if I'm building this team and I'm looking is kind of off the ball create a tone up front and they replace them with young players who aren't nearly as good and they are suffering right now because of that when you look run the ball back run the wide zone tight zone and cram it down your throat what's happened to them they were in they were in eleven personnel three wide receivers ninety the rams from an offensive perspective what they've done the last couple of years you know we make a lot out of Sean mcvay and you know I mean the owed McVeigh you rubbed up against Sean mcvay you get ahead Orne too tight ends right now they have completely changed who they are because of their issues up front and their issues with blocking the edge right now and that's reasons he's in Florida no state tax he just he's coming to California fourteen percent of that money is going to disappear Diaz says this right I would just say first and foremost I think we should all pray for Jalen Ramsey and his back hole I hope that he's going to be okay do for you they lost John Sullivan Center to retirement and they lost what I think is their best offensive Lineman Rauscher's Roger Southfield who was there you have players on the outside that are talented players and they have a bunch of talented players you haven't much good players on the offensive side of the ball you take for granted what those guys up front coaching job in this is the way that he coached his football team here's what he has done that has was taken for granted over the course of the last couple of years this is a huge gamble given a ball that draft capital for a guy who can't play because you've got a terrible back in like this this guy's this guy is a great and Diaz from Florida state he and Jalen Ramsey your clothes and dion sanders is on the record this morning I think on the NFL network he doesn't Jalen Ramsey's their past this year four financial and less is saying I need a cornerback key to leap injured right now and a free agent at the end of the year Marcus Peters was a free agent at the end of this Dave Ramsey you fill in those of the pieces and I know people say is really expensive to get Jalen Ramsey because you given up picks always take proven players over picks and if we don't get him long term we'll live with the big as Marcellus love to say past behaviors prediction of future behavior he's already tapped out on one team what's hurt this team so I'm hundred percent with you guys though it's Wade Phillips go hey man we're gonNA play man manfried ninety percent of the time brings them blitz and we're GONNA try to win as well so they had to go look for corner and here's a franchise player at the cornerback position young and talented like that who wants to play man and Wade wants to go out has maybe just negotiation tactics to say maybe I can leave you just left Florida if you wanted to stay with no state tax just stay still because I know what I'm getting if their scouting department is good they can figure it out in the later deal more to you said number one corner they've got both okay look what's going to happen when I've tried to block Cam Jordan shouldn't happen and this is the same thing that's going to have a look at this but in bitch rocket ship has lost him eight point it how they can be a team that can thrive in the NFC west for the long term they have to be dominant on defense right now you get the number one pass version Aaron Donald you now get the number more corner and did not last past this year next year we'll contracts up next year and then you can franchise them let's just be real so I understand what he conine feet damn happened is supposed to anchor supposed to drop your but dropped hits but he did not Taylor now collects himself lightly show of Jordan say here guard we build a championship team he's a bunch of blue chip players and they certainly had and have those guys on the contract Jalen Ramsey was a top five picky played like a top pick he gives them a difference in play man free so I think this is a great marriage understand it thirteen percent millionaire tax out here trust me we know out at feels I don't go here it's never brother now let's go to number one pat there's defensive tackle Jeremy Korda Real McCoy ooh match he brings down James Winston his former teammate McCoy had they do that look it costs them a first round pick but more than likely the way they've unit their first round pick was gonna be in the late twenties how often are you going to get a dominant player in the League twenty into the NFL quarterback Lamar Jackson who faces arguably his stiffest challenge of the season when he travels to Seattle to take on Russell Wilson and the five and one seahawks is number seventy five of the Jaguars reminds me of somebody else number seventy five of the Jaguar this boy dead to play for the Jaguar before Oh Joon Taylor poor you we believe that he's going to be a piece that's going to help us get to the super bowl that means we're going to be picking thirty one or thirty two so now we're willing to trade it off for the short term of having his services and struggled in losses to the browns and the chiefs last week against the winless Cincinnati bengals Jackson Pass for two hundred thirty six yards and ran for one hundred fifty talk about my family's watching at the same time you gotta go just let this situation and now you're gonNA use it do the rushing total caused the media to project the Jacksonville Demolish Michael Vick's NFL record of one thousand thirty nine rushing yards for a quarterback in move so when you do that you got to get the proper position and now he's going to steer Margaret Away with the reset move and all of a sudden he's sticking damn it gave them a number no season Jackson's on pace for twelve hundred yards on the ground is that a good thing or is it cause for concern took nineteen carries one hundred fifty two yard wjr from Jackson for the Ravens to beat the bengals twenty three seventeen last week that's not sustainable. The year Michael Vick ran four thousand yards the falcons finished seven app out again if necessary joined by college football analysts Fox collarbone go flat smartest men in college football it's time for of College Oklahoma Senior Neville Gallimore number two with the quick spanned for the sack on Sam Ellen did I say that right click sure all right cool I think here's the thing about this is used Marcus Peters as the example unless you say that they're just GonNa Rent Jalen Ramsey for another year or so and then walk away from it nine in two weeks the Ravens face the Patriots on Sunday night football they close out November with a stretch of games against the Texans Rams and forty niners Seattle Oh New England Houston Los Angeles and San Francisco have a combined record of twenty three and four if Baltimore wins two of those five games all right guys Marcellus get us rolling is this good for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens that he's on pace to smash Michael Vick's rushing record Hockett right now it's an accident waiting to happen it's an offense that can beat good teams it's an offense Short Jackson's career as a starter yes it works that were about Hookah Crook I'll give a damn I'm gonNA take some prophetic words from the scholar himself mark that do do yes myself what you got we got the best of the big uglies the big main upfront so we won't be showing the La Rams you know that all right let's number three Saints Ninety three I'm looking about the ring on one day I want to be up there with the greats so what he does have a tremendous game two and a half sex bring down his former teammate reminds them Yasha outside the pocket and rg three comes the name everyone wants to say but you know what there is no protected existence in the NFL so with that learn who said it's just interesting how people are trying to legislate contact out of context sport talk all the rule changes referees and now that implementation I'll consider the possibility the Lamar Jackson run heavy offense is a smart strategy right now it's a bad scheme designed to hide the fact that Jackson can't play quarterback from the indictates him to run that often I don't have a problem with it because if you stay in their pocket you're GONNA have to deal with it and if you get out gotta deal with it I'm fine what it is well now let me go Jerry Maguire year our debt and dude of the week again I'm Jay Zodda return the ravens are four and two or four victories have come against opponents with a combined record of four eighteen in one Jackson is floors against weak competition aw I with the ball look at that somebody still remembers that canes and then he's GonNa see Allie markets is hands go get them he's going to push it off and this is a reset take a little more it is nothing for you and everything for Cam Jordan who was our number three debt Doodo the week maybe reggie white he's a beast this goethe it's a historically it has but it's it's it's it's evolving win when Vick was planned they weren't running RPO's they weren't vic with thriving they weren't doing that uses our own office and you WANNA hold sneaky hoed target hits and lifting needs all the youngsters at home when you turn your hips that's how you get pressure on the quarterback receiver I'm not but if I'm on that team trying to win I'm fine with it if he can give you get a Baltimore Ravens sixty years it is they'll take that they'll take it if he can't and with the way he's playing if he can do this for six to eight years in the head coaching President I let them do it you watch them on film this is I call it heavy spread because they are three tight ends there are fullback I mean they are big they are strong and this amazing also how broadcasters are illogically trying to talk about how you can play the position from the pocket and it safer so you run the calculation what's going to give our team the best opportunity for success right now based on terms based on situations and circumstances that game longer than that because of injury it reset my argument just just I'm saying you can't win running the ball from the quarterback position that's win games I saw is it sustainable hell no it's not sustainable because they ran him I think of the one thousand nine Russia's he's had last week I think fifteen of them by my count in leagues where he can do the same thing to Seattle that he's been doing everybody else now moving forward will he be able to do we don't know we've never seen we've never seen this before but if I'm a bad man Cam Jordan Air Jordan nine speed to Jack's Turkey and Ham Jordan gets Garnham issue one of the two sex day for Jordan now the first thing about this watch them it's unbelievable what they're doing and just when you think you saw one run that was the best run you've ever seen your entire life you like whoa wait that run was better than the last one I deterioration and a lack of efficiency and execution you're you're asking your offensive linemen to do more than the opposing teams in game skid schedule though when you're playing more physical brand of football than everybody else on that side of the ball I just think it's going to lead to ars more than big did completing twelve twelve percent more of his passes it's a different game it's evolved coach who's one he just said and a half sacks on a date you know McCoy familiar with his old team learned a lot knows losing years he's I I think I noticed not count and watch him he's going to get off the you get a couple more you get a couple of those again I don't know if I'm with you I think he may last six years and if you can get six years with the quarterback playing historically you're correct it's a different day and age now football the way guys playing I mean you look at it he's averaging one hundred I don't think he's long at that position my point about winning is they just played the winless bengals and this do pretty much played the perfect game no interception and two hundred thirty six ers pass a hundred and fifty two rushing they won by six I guess the winless Bingo the bengals are trashed so if you're the La Rams you're looking at this like we're renting a top five player seventeen or something anyway go ahead you you playing the long game or designed quarterback runs now some of the outside how many needy take big hits on a couple that's that's not bad I'll say is namic of offense is smart to plan you play good teams and there feasting on bad teams hats autumn but when you play good teams and when you get into the postseason the you with all this way never say short never seen anything over a sixteen game schedule if you ask your offensive linemen and tied in defense in your mind and imagination is still amazing that's not the reality and they're leaning on his run a game to kind of cover those warts when they were giving up over five hundred yards continuously see guys in the pocket where you WanNa go to someone other greats peyton manning Tom Brady and the pocket is held to pay his will or you want to look at some of the guys who they're not

Code one, they strike and listen to Russ Tucker, and Philadelphia goes film junkie Francey breakdown the top college prospects on another tasty edition of the college draft. Yes, it is daddy soda time, and it is hard to believe. We're going into week seven of the college football season. He is Fran Duffy the video scouting guru for the Philadelphia Eagles at f Duffy three on Twitter. I'm at Ross, Tucker, NFL on Twitter and Instagram, longtime, NFL, offensive lineman. Now I got a bunch of podcasts including this bad boy where we get to talk about the week that was in college football from a prospect standpoint, as well as the week that will be friend. Let's get right into it. It feels like the biggest game of the weekend was Texas, Oklahoma. What did you see there. I mean, it was certainly the most pertaining one that I watch. I watched a good amount of that game, and there were a few guys that really stood out to me on Saturday afternoon Rossio from Oklahoma standpoint. They've got a ton of speed on offense. I mean, Cuyler Murray, the quarterback. I don't think he's gonna play in the NFL. He's going to go ahead and be a baseball player if if he's smart about it, but this kid can absolutely fly the long touchdown late in the fourth quarter, third down, I forget if that tied the game or if that brought them within a touchdown. But my wife and I are watching the game together and she couldn't believe what she saw either. I mean, the kids just got some wheels. He had a turnover in this game that was really bad, really unfortunate trying to brace himself going to the ground under pressure in the pocket, and he coughed up the football, but he was pretty impressive. And the game, Hollywood Brown and CD lab. Those guys can fly to as receivers on the outside and in the slot. And you'll Lincoln Riley really knows how to leverage the speed of those two guys. They just got they have so much speed to the point where you know my wife was asking, how can we change the channel once. Texas was up three score, and I told her, I said, you know, not yet because these guys can come back at any point and they certainly did that Oklahoma ties the game, but you gotta give a ton of credits, Texas, man. I mean, they did not flinch. Sam etlinger the quarterback for Texas. He had a good game, big, strong, kitties, thick. They relied on him in the quarterback run game. He converted on a number of short. Yardage plays in the middle of field is a well as a number of touchdown runs as well. I thought Texas won both sides of the line of scrimmage to me that was one of the big keys to victory. Oklahoma, they've got an impressive defensive tackle Neville Gallimore whose long and explosive Canadian kid who's really getting his first taste of long-term action. But overall, I thought Texas one on both sides. We've talked last week about char- who the defensive end for Texas and how excited I was to see him in this game. I thought he really showed up stat sheet only had three tackles and a sack for him. But he he kept getting his name called. He was so disruptive upfront in the run game in the past game. You know, I don't. Who long term is going to be a high pick. I don't think he's going to, you know, be like this big time, double digit sack guy in the NFL. But I do think that he's gonna stick for a while in the league. You know, he's got great length. He can win at the point of attack. He's got a high mode or he plays with a ton of urgency. There's a lot to like they're on the outside for Texas little Jordan. Humphry certainly stood up. But Colin Johnson is the big name that a lot of people are excited about. I haven't done a deep dive on it, but he's a big kid made some nice contested catches. He did a nice job in the quick game of winning one on one on a couple of those slant routes for crucial situation catches there in the middle of the field. That's the kind of player. I think he'll be in the NFL. I haven't studied Johnston yet, but just watching him on TV over the course of his career. I don't really think that he's kind of a game breaker that's gonna win down the field, but more looks like a salad possession receiver. He's six, six, two hundred twenty pounds. He's a big kid. I thought he showed up in this game. So overall it was it was a really fun to watch the Red River. Shootout did not disappoint for sure. I can't remember what game it was that I was watching earlier in the season friend and I should've tweeted this, but I really think Mary might be the fastest quarterback I've ever seen and the guys that come to mind or Michael Vick RG three, Lamar Jackson, and I don't know if you would run a fast forty time like those guys, but he looks that fast. I mean, he is absolutely electric out there. It's really, really impressive when you watch what he's able to do. What about what about some other games? Anything. Anything from Notre Dame Vitek. Yeah, I kind of bounced around a little bit throughout the rest of the night and the rest of the afternoon. Yeah. Watch the Notre Dame VO tech a little bit. You know who you know who stood out. We've talked about Jerry Taylor who I think physically this kid's study at four sacks last week against Stanford, senior defensive tackle great run defender who coming into the season. I thought had athletic upside to be a pass rusher but seems to have. Put it all together from technique standpoint and also from a motor stamp point when it comes to getting after the quarterback, the issue, he's been really productive. Yeah, he stood out the linebackers tavon Coney drew tranquil those guys plenty of town. They stood out, but the junior pass rusher Khalid Corinne you know, he had a sack fumble in this game that was taken back for a score kind of a critical play. That helped turn the tide. I haven't done a deep dive on him yet, but he's flashed every time. I've watched the Irish this year from week one against Michigan all the way up until this week against Virginia Tech. So he certainly stood out to me in this game a guy that I'm excited to watch moving forward. I watched a little bit of Auburn, Mississippi State as well. We've talked about this little bit Russ, but both quarterbacks of this game jarred stood him for Auburn, Nick FitzGerald, Mississippi State. I have to watch more film of both these guys from this year, but I don't know. I just don't know if either of them is a guy that we're going to be looking at his big time prospects whenever they do declare Nick FitzGerald is a senior. So he certainly going to be in this draft to, but stood them. Just holding onto the bots who long and clutch moments. The BAAs gotta come out quicker FitzGerald. On the other hand, you know he's got a hang in the pocket of bit longer just watching TV, even you could just see that the I read if it's not there, he drops his eyes. He's looking to run like I said, FitzGerald, senior, he's going to be in this class. I hope he decided to go back to school. I mean, people are going to argue that he's not going to get better for the NFL and auburn's offense. Yeah, that's that's a fair point. But I think you need to master that offense. If you're going to be a high, pick like that scheme can make things so well defined for a quarterback with what they do with misdirection in the run game. It's very well defined reads, they opened things up to the point where short you may only throw twenty times in a game twenty five times, but you should be going if you're a top-flight quarterback prospect that offense, you should be going nineteen and twenty five. You should be going sixteen of twenty. And I, I'm not box scores scouting Rosso you know that, but cinnamon that offense the way that they play the way Gus malzahn plays. He that's a QB friendly offense. He should be completing sixty. Of his passes every week. If he is that big time guy, we've seen guys like Shaun white, Jeremy Johnson, and Nick. Marshall other quarterbacks in that scheme, put up similar numbers and everyone will say, oh, well, his numbers aren't worse than that. Yeah, but none of those guys reviewed as big time quarterback prospects if you're gonna view Jarrett stidham as being that guy as being a top fifteen top twenty pick in that scheme, which is much simpler than what he's going to be running at the NFL. He should be completing passes at a higher rate. He should be putting up bigger numbers just overall. I mean, that's just kinda the surface level thing, withstood them just watching them on film last year. I saw some of those red flags as well. Doesn't look like they've gotten better so far. I mean, the numbers this past week obviously weren't great and just looking at of, I'm just not sure that he's going to be that guy at the next level. I haven't seen it yet. I'm hoping he goes back to school for another year, feels like he's been pretty disappointing. I know our guy Dane burglar at the athlete. You know how to piece recently about some disappointing SEC quarterbacks instead them as a guy can just tell on Twitter that he's not real high on what I am high on friend dose equities. Number one, it's beer. Number two, their commercials are hilarious. Number three, they are genius date sponsor the Ross Tucker football podcast, and the college draft podcast. That's all you need to know about their beer. Plus they keep it in Tara Sante this college football season because they are the official beer sponsor of the college football playoff. Of course, Fran is, you know, it's the taste that led former president, Ben Franklin to tear down a goalpost. That's brise favorite thing. And the inspiration behind Steve Spurrier's nickname, of course, the head beer coach dose AKIs. Absolutely. Awesome. Make sure you're getting some dough Sekiyu for your tailgate. Or even if you just having a couple of daddy sodas while you're watching the games on Saturday or Sunday, or Thursday night or Monday night or whatever drink does ecu's responsibly imported by surveys us, may he kind White Plains New York. Speaking of other things we need to get to did how much, how much of Florida LSU did you see. Only a little bit. I always try wash the three thirty CBS game because I just love their broadcasts. So I watched a little bit of the game early and then got away from it and then watch a little bit at the end so much left to be decided hoping to go back and watch a lot more. I'll tell you the one guy that did stand out was Jakob polite when I was live from Florida, and then even seen some of the clips that are going around on Twitter from him is really, really impressive. I'm excited to dig into his phone. That's what I was gonna say. So first of all, a couple of things stand out to me right. You know, I'm not one of those like I am not one of those SEC bang the drum for the SEC guys. But first of all, nobody gets hit. SEC quarterbacks get hit. Is this year's those guys get annihilated fully bay Franks and Joe borough. We're getting it. So it's not even like not even a consideration of Bellamy. It just it's it's hilarious. They both. I was watching Martinez Ivy and it's interesting as watching him. I was thinking about him and Mitch high it and kinda surprising. You know, both those guys are seniors and both those guys playing in the US army bowl, and they were the top two hundred tackles in the country. And I remember talking with you about them. I think they both started since they were true, freshman. It just kind of interesting that neither one of them, you know, felt like they were good enough to leave after their third year, and maybe we've set the standard to hi Fran, but that was just what I was thinking about watching Martinez Ivy. He was getting physical. He was finishing and trying to be a bully with the LSU d. line which I liked to mazing how many of the corners look like what you want your corners to look like in that game, but your guy. I don't remember us talking about before the season, his change of direction and his movement skills. He doesn't look like he's very heavy polite, but while he he is impressive. How big is he offhand? And I don't know off the top of my head, but here's what I do know he so he's not a like every week starter for them. It seems like he's the guy that's of coming off the bench and playing and pass, rush situations which look that we've seen. We've had this discussion with before with guys like Tim Williams and guys that are built that way. That's great. And if you've got that one trick, if you've got the ability to get up field to get after the quarterback, I think that that will serve him. Well, I'm just excited to just got to get into the film and just see what he does look like as a run. Defenders. Florida does have a lot of town on that d. line. So if he's not starting because they like these other guys more, you'll be able to hold up a little bit better and he does compete in the run game. Then that will go a long way with me if he just looks like he's a non-participant in the run game. I will be a little bit worried that being said, I mean that first step, his accelerate his ability to exceleron running the hoop is rare like that. There are a couple of clips that I've seen where you know he's just he's able to win with that. First step turn the corner, and then just like a race car at top speed just fly around the hoop to the quarterback is really, really impressive. Greg McElroy from ESPN just posted a shot yesterday from this game to where he's able to win inside. And to me, like if you've got the ability to win both outside and inside a tackle, doesn't know which way you're going. I mean, you could speak to that like, that's when you've won as as as a pass rusher. If you've got the ability to win both ways at a high level, you've got the speed rush, and then he's got a wicked spin inside spin move and newly. That's all you need. If you free any, you know, it helps toyed Freenet surprising power to, but really if you're just fast you an inside spin move and you get enough power that you really put in off at the tackle in a bad spot and to your point the Notre Dame Virginia Tech game as well. You mentioned Jerry Tillery. They were disappointed in him. I could tell when I was there for in the spring game a couple of years ago, but he's gotten a lot better. I thought he would end up on the offense of line, but he's gotten better. The other guy that stood out to me again, watching that game. I think he actually is draft eligible. I don't think it'll happen. I want you to check out Damon Hazelton the wide receiver from Virginia Tech at some point, really impressive. Physically, he's from Baltimore was like a five, ten running back who went to ball state. And now he's like six, three to fifteen wide receiver head a big true freshman year at ball state. So big that he's like I'm transferring. And now he's clearly Virginia Tech. Receiver. I'm thought that was pretty impressive. I was at the Fordham Georgetown game, which is funny because Bill Polian was there because his granddaughter goes to Fordham. So we were talking about four forty minutes a tight end. That's pretty good. Georgetown has a defensive lineman, Christian Tate, who's a junior who is hill end up getting a shot. He's a three technique. I think all the way they thought maybe even a fullback. He's a little salt off like six foot two, two, probably six one to eighty five. But he reminds me of like three technique defensive tackle, but Fordham has a tight end is as right, and he had three really, really nice catches where he used tremendous body control number one for Fordham. So that's kind of my my FCS scouting report of the week. What about the news about Miami wide receiver? Amman, Richard really, really stinks, just terrible and. Just terrible. I look the kid's been battling a bunch of injuries the last couple of years and we didn't. We haven't heard anything about the neck, but you know, I think it was a hamstring he's dealing with this year. Last year was ankle and knee stuff. He burst onto the scene as a freshman and was so so talented and I went back and watched this film last year. And even though he missed a bunch of time with injuries, you just saw the talent there. I mean, it was a big kid who could run you showed flashes route one or super competitive. Great. Blocker really just showed a lot of urgency with everything he did, whether it was as a route runner going up eating at the catch point. There were some drops. There were some inconsistent play and the production wasn't always there, especially over the last year and change, but this kid had loads of talent. So obviously the health is most important. I'm glad that they caught the condition before it became even more disabling, but certainly terrible news from the. What about some other guys you've watched? I've got Akron at UB on Saturday at noon on CBS sports network, which is convenient. 'cause you get a chance to check out Anthony Johnson recently, right? Yeah. I watched him in the summer and I kinda I, we talked about this wide receiver for UB by the way for the listeners. Exactly. So he's the wide receiver and he was like first team. All MAC last year was his first year as a starter, and he just ripped it up with production like his numbers were so crazy, especially an a second-half last year, like they were things really click. I would say this year he's been a little bit kind of in and out of the lineup because of injuries. I think he's dealing with a hamstring as well. So he's we kind of in and out of the lineup, but I watched a couple of games this year and just knowing how I felt coming into the year. This is just kinda feel like this. This is a kid that's got pretty good size. I mean, he's he's only six foot six one, but he's I think he's like two twenty. Like he's. He's really thick. He's strong and that shows up on film. I think what I watched Johnson. I see a guy who could play the ball on the air. You know, I mentioned that strength. He's a big physical kit. It can out-muscle kids at the catch point. But you know, in terms of his speed, his quickness is overall athleticism. I think that that's a big question Mark for me. You know, he still works in a dropper to that. I'd like to see come off the board. I'd say the big thing though overall that I really liked in the game that I watch from Johnson this year, and these are the kinds of things that stick with scouts playing on the road at temple just across the street here in south Philly. Third and ten twenty nine yard line a minute left in the game. He came in motion to the slot and he ran a quick slant from the right side. He broke a tackle at the twenty five and he raced across the field of power throw tackle inside the five to the pylon touchdown. They win the game. It was oppressive just to see him. Come up big in that moment, and those kinds of clutch plays do count and a little bit more and stick in the minds of evaluators a little bit more. I do have questions about Johnson athletically. There are times on watching them, especially with the ball in his hands. He almost looks like an undersized tight end the way he moves. But there is something there. Hopefully he could just get healthy just finish out the season strong. I'm excited to see what you think from when you get to see him in person. Just, you know the the quickest standpoint and the ability to create separation on the outside. That's a, that's a major question for me for him right now is AOL as he guy that can line up outside every down and win, or does he going to be more of a rotational guy or an inside slot, big slot guy and be that type of matchup guy. That's something that I'll be looking at. Get that question answered over the next eight months and I'll be looking for you guys to check out the new show on the CW. So I like drama. I like TV shows when I get chance to watch them. And yes, you know, I love football and that's why I'm checking out CW new show all American. I love it because it's based on a true story of Spencer pacing her, you know, he went to Oregon played there. Then he was drafted by. The giants played in the league for a while, and it's his story as a young kid growing up as a high school football FINA. I'm in south central, getting recruited to play in Beverly Hills. Tate digs is the coach plays a former star player in his own, right? And here's the thing, Billy promises Spencer Billy's coach days the chances someday go pro and that relationship is everything between the coach and the player, both the good and the bad. Don't miss out in the incredible new series. All American. It's Wednesdays only on the CW and the CW app. Again, the show is called all American. All right, Fran. Let's go head to head. I feel like we talk about it every week, but we were keeping track of these quarterbacks against the defenses in some cases, top defenses they're going against. Yeah. So my number one, senior quarterback drew lock big tests this week they go and they take on Alabama and they've got a loads of talent at all three levels. I mean, whether you're looking up front at rake, Lon Davis, the junior defensive tackle who's just a freak show, kinda reminds me of deforest Buckner type of player, like in terms of style, Anthony, Jennings off the edge pointed Williams. I haven't studied this kid Quentin Williams yet a nose tackle there, but he's getting a lot of buzz now is AM bugs at defensive end is kind of a Jonathan Allen type kind of a Squatty defensive tackle who can light up a number of different spots and win. And then you look at linebacker. MAC Wilson, you know, his eyes are a little bit slow, but he is an explosive athlete. It looks like Reuben foster in the open field. He's just doesn't see things like Reuben foster did at the linebacker level when he was at Alabama and the Deontay, Tom. The free safety. They've got a young secondary there, but Thompson shows up weekend and week out with his range and his ability to play the ball in the air. So I'm excited to to kind of watch, drew lock against the scene. We watched him against Georgia a few weeks ago, and you saw his supporting cast was kind of overmatched expect that to be the case on Saturday, but it just interesting to see how he matches up against that unit out west. Justin. Herbert obviously is the guy that a lot of people feel would be QB one. There's just a lot of buzz about him. Just he's going that he would go back to school. So we'll see if he does decide decide to enter into this class, but big test this week against this Washington defense, namely that secondary because they've got a ton of talent Byron Murphy as a redshirt, sophomore, who's getting a ton of buzz as a potential first round pick if it went, he does decide to enter the NFL Taylor wrap it safety is a guy that I've heard a lot of good things about Jordan. Miller's, a senior who was on the senior bowl, watchlist is a very talented secondary as is usually the case there in Washington. So good test there for Herbert with. Oregon, Vanderbilt, go back to the Vanderbilt. They take on Florida. So we'll see Jakob polite and the rest of that Florida defense. They've got some talent up front there for the Gators going up against Vanderbilt quarterback, Kyle sherpa. This is a good test for him. The senior quarterback four year starter, the son of giants quarterback are giants. Head coach, Pat Shurmur. We'll see what he's able to do their against the Gators and then starting to hear a lot of our buzz. Continuing about this kid, Stephen Montanez from Colorado, you know, he's, he's put up big numbers this year. They're starting to win some games and they go up against the US kind of like the buffaloes in this game going up against the leg supporter Gusta and camp Smith biggie Marshall at quarter marvel. Tell at safety. A lot of draft eligible players a lot of senior talent for USC. So good test there for Colorado quarterback Stephen Montanez in this in this matchup. What about some of the running back linebacker matchups this weekend. Yeah, we'll stay in the big ten and AO. Michigan takes Wisconsin, Karen Higdon and Chris Evans, for I know Chris Evans has been banged up there kind of hoping that he'll be back and fully healthy for this game. But Karen has been putting up some nice. Some nice performances here so far is a senior. I don't think that he's a supreme athlete. He's not the biggest or strongest honor. He started last season as the third string back and kind of worked his way into the role. He's got now, but to see what he looks like against a senior Laden Wisconsin defense, and they've got talent at all three levels as they always do at linebacker. I love TJ Edwards, a guy that I feel could be three down player in the NFL. I know a lot of people like his teammate right next to him in that three or four steam Ryan Connolly. So both those guys matched up against these Michigan running backs. I feel be really interesting and then Michigan state and Penn State. You got LJ Scott who I think has been into that. He's been in and out of the lineup, and I, I know they're kind of hoping he's going to go. If he does go, that's going to be the big test for Penn State and this front seven, you know, we know about felt David. The wide receiver he came through big for Michigan state this past week, but. Scott is in the game. He's the guy that you have to account for. I'm excited to hear what you think about that matchup how those two sides kind of face off your this weekend. Well, I would have told you before that. I thought it was a major concern for Penn State. Their run defense has not been good this year. They were okay against a high of state. They're coming off of a bye and last year, the worke absolutely lit them up. I mean, it's amazing Penn State last year lower-key and j. t. Barrett. I would say both guys had probably the best game to their career against him. I don't know what that says about Penn State. They're really hurting for depth the defensive tackle the even switched over an offense of lineman. So I think that's going to be a good matchup and Michigan state's had enough issues throwing the ball this year that I think that they'll try to lean on that offense of line and they'll try to pound Penn State and also keep the ball out a trace McSorley hands. So that's going to be the key matchup in the game. Glad you highlighted. What about some wide receiver tight ends against DB's friend? Yeah, we'll start in the big twelve and we talked last week about Texas corner, Kris Boyd a little bit on the shorter end. He's not a supreme athlete for the position. I do worry a little bit about his recovery speed, and his boss skills are a little bit up and down, but good matchup this week against Baylor and these two receivers, you know, Denzel mims guy. A lot of people are high on, but you know Ross a few years ago, you and I, we talked a lot about Jalen Hurd the running back from Tennessee. He was there with Alvin Kamara, and then he decided to leave the team mid season. He transferred out there were issues with the coaching staff and Butch Davis. So he left went to Baylor, had to sit out last year now he's a receiver, and there is a buzz on the scouting trail about this kid. I mean, at the end of the day, he's six four. He's to twenty. He's going to test like a freak show in the spring. I don't know that he always plays to it, but it'll be interesting. I haven't studied him yet it receiver I'm excited to kind of dig into a good test here against this Texas defense and an opportunity for both mims and. Heard to kind of get on the national stage with everybody talking about the longhorns. So that's an interesting match up to watch in that game. You go to the SEC Georgia takes on LSU so that talented receiving corps for the BULLDOGS Terry Godwin's a senior to meet your s- Robertson the transfer from cows at junior. You have the younger Ridley brother, all these guys going up against LSU greedy Williams obviously can't cover all three, but watching how he matches up against this group. I think we'll be an interesting game within the game there in that matchup and then go to the two matchups to watch here. Louisville takes on Boston College in Louisville, they've got the senior wide receiver Jalen Smith who a lot of people were really high on the Spriggs. Some people had him in the first round of mock drafts. I don't see him as that kind of talent, but certainly a guy that can make waves in the Strath. I do think they can be kind of an early day three selection and Boston College. They've got to senior safety, so those guys will be charged with trying to match up with him at least over the top. And then also when he does side of the slot because both of those guys will line up over the number two or number three receiver at time. So Lucas. Dennis, and we'll Harris from Boston College. The two names to keep on there with Louisville wodge Seaver, Jalen Smith. And then for Jinya verse Miami, we talked about Miami last week in that match up with Florida state. I like the senior corner, Michael Jackson, and then Sheldrick red wine is the free safety there. He's a senior as well. Red wine will match up on slot receivers at times, and that's where you're gonna find Allama day zacchaeus from from Virginia. He's at under-sized slot guy. He's got some quick this. He's not truly dynamic. He's not explosive, but he is a guy who's got quick to send out a breaks. He's a former running back as well. So good after the catch there. Some toughest there with this kid. I kind of liked what I saw from zacchaeus. I think he's going to be an NFL player. So when you watch that batch, that's an interesting little battle there to watch in the slot between Michael Jackson red wine, and then also zacchaeus, most importantly, Olin d line frame. What are you got a match up that you and I have been really looking forward to since the summer and that's Wisconsin. Verse Michigan, this Wisconsin, offensive line Mike. Deiter David Edwards, Ben Shaul. I mean, all those guys up front for the badgers going up against this Michigan defensive line and chase win Avik the high motor senior off one side shot. Gary missed last week. He gets Maryland, but they're hopeful that he will play this week against the badgers. I think he probably could have gone last week Gary, but they were hoping to just kind of hold them off. Make sure that he was good to go against this this badgers team. So this is going to be a fun match up to watch. In the trenches. I guarantee you every play every time. Any evaluator goes to watch anyone from either side of the ball, they're going to go to this game, whether if they're watching Michael or they're going to see how did he do against one of Gary and vice versa. This is going to be a big matchup for all those guys in the trenches in that game, you look at Alabama, Missouri as well. I could say the same thing for Terry Beck near the defensive tackle from zuri. He's got some holes in his game, but going up against Alabama. That's an opportunity to kind of prove your wares. How is he gonna look against Lester cotton in Ross Pierce Spock or the rest of that into your Alabama, offensive line, and then staying in the SEC Zack. Bailey is a guy that I like he's out his natural position of guard going up against Texas a. and m. they've got those talented emptier guys Dalen MAC as well as they've got a senior down there as well. So keep an eye on that matchup for that game. Love it. I am very, very fired up. And for those of you that like to make the games more interesting, you know what to do it is bit online.

What Walkman. altoona their episode of the Ocho in partnership as always espy nations blogging the boys dot com him rj a CIA of course from bb from writer as you're humble host on the show it is Tuesday October thirteenth. Two Thousand Twenty. We hope all is well wherever you are. We hope you're happy safe healthy and I know that you are likely still. bummed. As we all are I it's it's a hard week. It's hard whenever you lose a player like back Prescott and obviously we're all hoping and praying and just offering our well wishes to Dak and excited to see him whenever he does return to the cowboys in two thousand, twenty one. Season moves on, and we're going to focus on that and we're going to try like crazy to be as confident as we Canada's team is. As much as. Reality will allow. But that's that's where our focus is and if you want to talk about. Here for you certainly talk about later on the day myself in two time superbowl champion Tony Casillas seventy-five, you can look forward to that. But for now, let's get to the latest news the latest headlines in the world of the Dallas Cowboys. Now we've talked about extensively, but he was not the only Dallas cowboys play lost for the season during Sunday's victory against the New York giants Tristen Hill, second year defensive tackle. Who has been playing just so well so far this season in fact, Mike McCarthy in his Monday press conference said that Tristan Hill is maybe the most improved defensive player on the cowboys and is undoubtedly the most improved defensive lineman on the Dallas cowboys and that's an assertion that I agree with In fact, I've said at times that Tristan Hill is the best defensive player on the Couch Alden Smith has certainly. Made his case for that, and we'll see advantage has to say is the season moves on hopefully but Tristan hill suffered a torn ACL and is gone for the season his second year in the NFL his road to recovery begins now just like Prescott's in. Just a huge bummer man I mean these are the players that the cowboys have lost for the season. Okay and this is just for the season because we're still dealing with a lot of injuries like the aforementioned leandra rush. Have Lost Jail McCoy Blake, Darwin Liau Collins Tarrant Smith Dak Prescott interested in Hill. That is four offensive starters. Blake Darwin Lau Collins Tarrant and Dak Prescott in two I. Don't know if you would come defensive starters because I don't know that Tristen Hill starts have Joe McCoy doesn't get injured Kinda play with a bit of can of worms there but the point is To really good defensive players to really good defensive tackles. In fact, arguably your to best defensive tackles in jail McCoy interest in hill. So the cowboys now, obviously, we'll have to lean on Antoine Woods on Dante repoed Neville Gallimore the rookie the Dallas cowboys drafted out of Oklahoma third round was active on Sunday against the New York giants he will, of course be done. Skin thin. It's getting thin. Conversations back. In the days of fifty three man roster talk about how the cowboys were sort of sneaky deep defensive tackle. That was why you know they. They know I thought for a long time that Antoine Woods wasn't going to make the fifty three man roster because the cowboys had so many bodies in so many potentials. But obviously, you know whatever happened and. This is this is tough. And you know Anthony Brown already returned from injured reserve. See About Lane Vanderbilt we'll see about Cam Irving today is Tuesday, and so tomorrow. Is when more information will be Abbott Remembered The Dallas Cowboys play on Monday night football this week. So everything gets pushed back a day as far as normal week's worth of practice is concerned but. Our thoughts and our prayers, and our well wishes go out to Tristen Hill as well because man just. It's tough and you know I think that you could. You could ask a lot of teams and a lot of fans of different teams and they would tell you how it's tough for them and Mike, McCarthy's success with the two thousand ten, green. Bay. Packers has been noted in terms of how that team overcame. A lot of players being placed on injured reserve and injured reserve does operate differently here in two thousand and twenty because of Covid nineteen protocols players can be brought back after three weeks but. It is you know and I think that that's Probably going to have video about this later in the week on the block on the boys Youtube Channel by the way if you haven't subscribed there, make sure you please do so. I think it is worth saying and I know I've said this already but because people are being critical of Mike McCarthy and that's fair he's the head coach in the buck stops with him. I mean this is not the team that Mike McCarthy. Had during his opening press conference at the Ford Center at the Star. At that time Mike McCarthy's starting center was Travis Frederick, and he had Terence Smith and Lyle Collins and Blake. Back Prescott and didn't have Joe McCoy. But you get the picture I. mean this has dramatically changed for the cowboys so far this year and That's why you get paid right I mean you're paid to be the guy that can figure it out, and that's where the cowboys are out with Andy Dalton with Dalton Schultz. In fact I'm just now realizing that there's going to be adult adult and connection I also realized that. Andy. Dalton will get to play against his former team in the Cincinnati bengals when the cowboys head on over to Cincinnati in week fourteen so we will get some Delton versus borough action. Figure, it out. That's that's really what it ultimately comes down to because. It's very possible that this team could win the NFC east. It is very possible and I have settled on the idea that Andy Dalton is the second best quarterback in the NFC East I know that you WanNa, make joke that Carson Wentz isn't the best but Carson Wentz is the best quarterback in the NFC east at the moment. In. Andy Dalton might be number two I. Think there's there's room for Daniel Jones to grow into improve. Alex Smith is just such a wild card so It's possible and it's possible if this coaching staff and I thought that Bob Sturm from the ticket and the athletic put it well. In his Monday morning after the athletic, this is where we will find out whether this coaching staff is different because the Jason Garrett staff for all their effort failed when they lost their centerpieces. Where you live through that and it will be very interesting to see for the future of the Mike. McCarthy era if this coaching staff is also incapable of surviving the loss albeit of the most important person in some of the most important people on the team but they should be good enough to overcome that we've talked so much about how Doug Peterson was able to do it and other coaches, etcetera and Mike. McCarthy. Has To answer that call. Speaking of Mike McCarthy I do want to mention that. Mike McCarthy mentioned during his Monday press conference at the Dallas Cowboys will be adding a third quarterbacks would be on the lookout for that obviously now with Andy Dalton starting Ben Delucci. Aka. Which is the primary backup and so. Yeah, I think it would behoove you if you're the cowboys to go out and get another person another quarterback just in the event of emergency because you are now operating in the event of an emergency that is your current reality. So. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa be a long week. We're GONNA figure stuff out and we're going to you know get ready for the cardinals and we're going to see what happens by the way the last time the cowboys hosted the cardinals, another backup quarterback with red hair started in place of the starter in Brandon Weeden so. Interesting coincidence there to some degree. But that does it for our Tuesday episode here on the Ocho again, the seven five hundred coming to you. Later today here on the belong in the boys podcast feed make sure subscriber available wherever you get your podcast all major podcast platforms I'm Marjo in Hey.

The Ocho: How do we feel one week in?

"America. What? Welcome. To another episode of the Ocho presentative in partnership as always with spn nations blogging the boys dot com. Arduous Cha. You Know Me of course from VDB from writer humble host onto the Ocho it is Friday August twenty first two, thousand and twenty. We hope all is well wherever you are. We hope you're happy safe healthy and you are ready for the weekend I know that you have been working for it and. We are one week into Dallas cowboys training camp. You know it felt like it was never going to get here and so much has happened I certainly don't want to say too much has happened but we went from. Just wandering in the desert to a filet mignon in a lobster tail and shrimp ladder in a gigantic dessert bar in. Everything that you could possibly imagine there has been so much happening over the course of the last week with regards the Dallas cowboys it has mostly been good. Obviously, the Joe McCarthy was a huge bummer. But I thought that the today's episode of the Ocho would serve as. A checking in kind of a status quo sorts. With regards to the two thousand Twenty Dallas Cowboys in their quest to win the Super Bowl. I know that the girls have talked about hype this week they did so on Mondays episode of girls, talk and boys, and they will continue to do. So later on today, you will have a brand new episode egbe in your blog on the voice podcast feed. Later on on Friday, about lunchtime makes you do subscribe to our podcast network wherever you get your podcast we are available on all major podcast platforms you get access to two different Dallas. Cowboys episodes every single day keeping you updated thoroughly updated on all things America's team on Saturdays we offer a very special treat for you every Saturday cowboys Roy with Modise George Regas an entirely Spanish Dallas cowboys show it is fantastic. So strongly encourage you to check out all of our wonderful shows we have you set for the season. In fact, we are now that it's Friday while we're twenty three days where Jordan days away from the season beginning and. I. Here's where I'm at. You know if we're GonNa Talk Status Quo Right? If we're GONNA talk like how you feel and I. Would argue how you feel bro, how you feel in I mean. I have not been this excited for Dallas Cowboys team and I don't even know how long I truly do not know, and I'm not trying to be hyperbolic in fact, I'm resisting all urges to get you know this excited or kind of excited remotely excited because. You know that happens right like we all you know get excited for the cowboys to do well, and then something happens and they don't do on. It's disappointing and I think you know maybe the last time and I don't mean to cast. This these sorts of doubt over the twenty twenty season. I was very excited entering the two thousand, fifteen season and I think that a lot of people were as well I. Think if you remember I'm sorry two thousand sixteen season. Well, twenty two. Let's let's look at both of those because if you remember twenty fifteen. Obviously. The cowboys are coming off of having caught it at Lambofield they drafted Byron Jones. In the first round they had landed Randy Gregory in the second round they had picked up Lyle Collins and free agency and everybody kind of thought. Okay. They're going to be able to rent it back. Right. DEMARCO's gone. He went to Philly whatever but DEZ is still here it was Joseph Randall's time to shine, and there was a lot of hype about that and. Obviously, the air was that balloon rather quickly does getting hurt and week one when Tony Romo had the great comeback against the giants on Sunday Night Football Dunbar game, and then we to when Romo goes down but the cowboys were to and. Know to in the division but he thought that would kind of hold them and it did. But you know obviously that season was terrible and I think we were all really excited in two thousand sixteen just because of the potential of offense featured Tony Romo and Ezekiel Elliott, and obviously that didn't happen but that's it was wildly successful, etc. my point is those are the last times I was really really excited I wasn't I wasn't all too excited entering twenty-seven tend to be. Honest. Just because it was so hard to know what it was going to be random and there were still so many questions and two thousand, eighteen. Okay and then got off to the rough start and last year I think I think that this time last year everybody sort of knew that we were going to be some very different a year later because everybody kind of assumed that Jason Girl wasn't going to win the super bowl and therefore wasn't going to keep its job. But if I go further back, if I'm you know tasked with giving you three teams besides this one that I was really excited for I. was really pumped for the two thousand eighteen I know that's a subject we've spoken about a lot over the years I know it's something that friend of the show bobby belt and I have talked about there is no reason why the two thousand and eight Dallas Cowboys did not go win the Super Bowl. That is one of the most talented teams in franchise history to not compete at any real level. And obviously, that season was so horrible ending the forty four to six loss eagles and whatnot but. Those are the last time I was like this juiced and that's how I would describe this. There's like the other day my wife and I we bought some awesome peaches and I'm big fruit guy. Late at night, it's kind of my thing I make a little fruit platters and peaches and banana some. Every. Now, and then on mixing some yogurts animal crackers if if you care about my dietary habits. And so we bought these speeches and do they were the juiciest peaches I've ever seen in my life I mean it was I felt like I cut it open like to cut up this last this licence because like I said I'm yeah, I'm making a platter. If I'm going to do this I'm going to be organized and I'm going to vote some time. So I can sit down and watch them big brother or whatever and. So I cut this thing open and it was like somebody dumped this thing in just like peach juice I mean it was like dripping wet it was it was like you know. Like those not nerf balls, those pool toys that are like the balls that you throw, and then when you pick it up out of the pool, it's still dripping and then you squeeze it and it just like. Out Pool water like that but the peach and Long, story short I am that's how I would describe my hype for the two thousand twenty cowboys. It is like that juicy peach or like that pool toy that probably would have been more sense started there. Because and again, I really caution myself and all of us to temper expectations into pump the brakes and Dubuque careful and to tread lightly shadow Walter White. But just about everything that we have heard are we have seen or that has happened has been. Remarkable is acting like you know they're walking on water and things like that. I'm not saying but it has been. Vastly different in the most optimum way the things that we have heard the different levels of thinking that we have heard from Mike McCarthy from Stephen, Jones from Kellen more from Mike Nolan even from John Fossil Ins. We have heard in terms of their planes and their preparations for the season have been things that we have wanted to see from the cowboys for some time and so that's why it feels so good. Steven Jones was I wonder if I take the fan on Thursday? And, he talked about how you know. He's really liked it but he soon for Mike McCarthy and he said something we played the late in vander audio from one the fan on Thursday's episode of this show. Where late and talked about how the couch a practicing generating turnovers more Stephen Jones corroborated that idea I want to see the fan he said, yeah I. Mean. That's one of the things I've seen is. Stephen Jones can talk some generalizations sometimes, but he mentioned you know we all know what happens. If you win that turnover battle, you put yourself in a good position to win that game, etc. Whatever not that that is one hundred percent indicative of anything. But obviously, window turnover battle is a very good thing and a focus on that is something that we have. This is a very, very, very tiny minute thing here. Okay. But the fact that that has become a talking point even. A shows how low the bar was for all of us I guess but be signifies a change in thought process, which is the most exciting thing and that's why I mean maybe my ph hype isn't necessarily for the twenty twenty cowboys as much as it is for this next little run I. I remember an I really am not trying to just like send the hype. Train off the rails but I think that a lot of you probably felt this way after the two thousand, sixteen season when the cowboys loss at the packers ironically, Mike McCarthy's packers in the division around I. Think we all had this thought that at some point Dak. Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are going to win a super bowl and I've only ever thought that and I. Promise I am not comparing the two. So don't go down this direction, but I'm you know I'm San Antonio Spurs fan like a lot of NBA teams and I'm a little bit more loose when it comes to basketball but I remember watching in two thousand fourteen when the spurs were on their way to winning their fifth todd that was an awesome spurs round but they beat the Golden State Warriors on the way and I remember thinking like man that warriors team because they were so young then and everything and they before it's all said and done before this nucleus is done, they're going to get one and obviously the became one of the greatest dynasties NBA history. That's not what I'm saying the cowboys are about to, but my point is. After Dakyns, Zeke's rookie year. I had a similar thought like man at the end of this you know this relationship, this little run this nucleus here they're going to get one, and since then not that that feeling has dissipated dwindled by any means and. I certainly did not feel as strongly about that after the twenty seventeen season for example, or you know the month you know. That was the last month of last season but that that feeling has been kind of like stowed from me a little bit. You know like when the fires going out and you Kinda poke it, you still got a little bit that that little flame has been kicked me a little bit maybe maybe like somebody through a couple of pieces of newspaper on there and there's a flame again towards that thought process and I think that more than anything and that's the most exciting thing is I feel based simply on this last week, which I know is making amount of a mole hill.

So maybe the feelings and the expectations in the excitement for this particular next season a little bit more isolated at a different way. I think, we all think this team we'll have success in two thousand twenty, but it's hard to win the Super Bowl and that has to be acknowledged. I think in a bigger sense, I feel confident that this is a team with the primary pieces, the cornerstone pieces that it has in terms of its head coach in terms of its offensive coordinator, and we'll see what happens to cal it more in terms of its quarterback in terms of its core nucleus of young players, you're Amari Cooper. In the future obviously, your offensive line's a little bit older. You're lane vander ashes. Your Trevan digs is hopefully you demarcus lawrence is things like that I, feel very confident in the future of this team which obviously spills over into the two thousand twenty season. And that's a really exciting thing and I think what sort of crystallized that thought from me in in the final way and maybe I'm just. Really kind of looking at things through some foggy glasses. But was what Everson Griffen had to say on Thursday now Everson, Griffen obviously the newest member of the Dallas Cowboys. The newest high profile member of the Dallas was that is, by the way, a bit of a programming note Everson Griffen did get number ninety, seven, the Dallas cowboys team website. After, Thursday's practice reflected that he. Did Indeed score the number that he wanted I don't know how that ultimately came about but Tristan. Hill, who wore the number last year by the way if you remember this time last year Tristen, Hill was number seventy nine. But after the cow is moved on from Taco Charlton, he picked up ninety seven himself. So that number has experienced quite a bit of change since two, thousand seventeen. So maybe that number is kind of emblematic of what I'm feeling right? Like the stokes the flames have been stoked on ninety seven anyway. So Everson Griffen is now ninety seven Tristen Hill Wearing Travis Fredericks number seventy two. I know I know I. Know You feel a certain way about that? Believe me I know. And finally. Neville gallimore talked so much on the seven five, oh myself and Tony. About how the cowboys once again had defensive tackle from the University of Oklahoma wearing member seventy-five just like Tony. Did because Neville Gallimore was wearing number seventy five he changed though because. After the cowboys this was the process of it all. In order to make room for Everson Griffen on their roster, the cowboys had to say goodbye to Jalen jokes who previously if you remember Jalen jokes when he first started with the cowboys had number seventy, four switch to ninety six this off season Collins Latin free agency had that number basically for the spring in some of this summer. Obviously. But when he was released that opened up ninety six, Everson Griffen was originally given ninety six, I believe it was Dallas Cowboys Dot dotcoms billips that first reported that and so somehow some way ever since talked. Tristen. Hill into giving him ninety seven and seventy two was obviously available because Travis Frederick retired. So Tristan Hill took that and while the number changes were happening, I guess never gone more said, well, Hey, everson if you don't want ninety six, you know because I know Jalen is gone I was going to have it I'll take it. So that's that's where all the number stand in case you were curious but anyway, Everson Griffen spoke to the media on Thursday his first time as a member of the Dallas cowboys unless you count the video that the cowboys on their social channels and he talked about how he was named after Everson walls a cowie spin. That was very cool etc. how the cowboys were his favorite team growing up But this is the part that stuck out to me he said. Obviously. After he was asked why he chose the cowboys his, they've been my favorite team. In this time I'm trying to win a championship I look at the pieces that they've got here with Deck Coop Lamb Mike. So I think that they have the weapons. Zeke. Offensive Line all around. So I think the weapons are put in place and it's up to the players and. The coaches to go out there on Sundays and win the Games. But on the defensive side were stacked de la Alden me. We've got a lot of good guys on that side of the ball. We're just excited to play football and excited to win. That's our main objective is to win here. Again, I'm not trying to just go down all of the KOOL aid but. I'm I'm definitely taking a big drink. I've I'm not. Taking. Down at. But I mean I'm definitely like you know when you come inside after like working on the or something I know that that. Ari Roy in Helmand were kind of mentioned something about this when it's hot outside. But when you when you've done something outside or just when you really I like the middle of the night and you wake up and and you just take like a gigantic gulp of water. I mean like a breath of fresh air like that's the goal that I have taken on the two thousand twenty cowboys. So, we'll see if it's Justified, substantiated. But you know look that's what being fan is really all about right. kind of letting your emotions run away from you a little bit and it's fun. It's fun to think into hope into imagine what's to come and so. This could be a fun season. All Things considered the last thing I do want to say and I did tweet about this Dak Prescott on on Thursday met with the media. We've obviously heard from a little bit because he is the quarterback and he asked about a couple of things asked about CD. Lame and things like that. But he was asked one very important question. All right. We know the cowboys quarterbacks wearing red practice jerseys. We've covered that extensively and that was worth all the coverage that we gave it. But Dak, Prescott has been seen to this point and training camp wearing a visor on his helmet, oh? Yeah. That's right. Baby a clear visor. All right now here's the thing. You gotta be a bad ass to make clear visor. The cool. That's that's a rule I'm sorry that's rule and deck makes it look cool I I've said this before and I've got to the point where I wonder if I made it up because I've looked this up to see if. If I could find any. Evidence to support this but I can't but I remember hearing when I was a kid there Chris Simms when he was at the University of Texas, there is an institution of higher learning in the state of Texas by the way. But. When he was at the University of Texas, he had a clear visor and I remember hearing or reading somewhere some way if you know a piece of data that substantiates appreciate it but that the visor was his prescription because he wore glasses and I thought that was the coolest thing ever and it was certainly the most efficient advisor that's ever existed. But It is hard. It is actually hard as cool as visors are. It's hard to make a visor look cool as a quarterback let alone a clear visor I mean it's It's not that hard to make like a tinted visor. Emmy. There are guys who do it really well, Tyler Maria looks awesome. Tinted visor most guys. I think because of the tinted visor look good in some guys you know, hey, I I would not look good in adviser I mean it's cool I can accept that I can I can I can own that however Dak Prescott said he's wearing a clear visor because he he just thought about it he thought he'd try dome. Back press this million touchdowns it's happening I mean watch out the clear visors here it is just awesome I. Love The visor it is a truth that the more you resemble a madden character the more likely you are to have stats week in and week out throughout your NFL career that's just a fact I mean those are the facts, those objective data points and they cannot be denied. But anyway, like I said, we do have a brand new episode of girls talk and boys coming your way later on today Kelsey Megan get into things that they are hyped about I think Francis Bernard might make the list in Vanderbilt was pretty hot about him to.

The Ocho: Initial 53-man roster reactions

"NONA. Whatever welcome. To another episode of the Ocho presented you in partnership as always espy nations blogging the boys dot com. Rg Show of course from. And from writer as you're humble host onto the OCHO, it is Saturday. September. Fifth two, thousand and twenty. We hope all wherever you are. We hope you're happy safe healthy and that you are satisfied with the initial Dallas Cowboys fifty three man roster we often don't get to chat on Saturdays you and I. You did get a brand new episode, Pacific Cowboy earlier today in your podcast feed makes you go back and listen to that makes you subscribe to The dog in the boys podcast network wherever you get your podcast, we are available on all major podcast platforms always have things coming your way to discuss the latest and greatest in the world of America's team, and on this find Saturday which is eight days ahead of the season opener on the road against the Los. Angeles Rams The Dallas cowboys like every team in the NFL have officially set their fifty three man roster, their initial fifty three man roster. That word is important because while the fifty three man roster has been set, it is going to see some changes over the course of the next day two days, etc. Even though the season begins days from now, there will be some changes. Some obvious ones maybe some surprising ones that happened with the cowboys and across the NFL. Now, before we go through this, did want to jump on. Here and just kind of give quick reactions now that the fifty three has been again initially said I did want to explain a particular injuries specification that is happening specifically in the year two, thousand twenty. Now, if you've been following the NFL for some time, you are aware of the injured reserve designation that has been going on for a long time. Now, what that is is a player that. In its initial sort of operation was placed on injured reserve and there was able to be brought back off of injured reserve after they had healed up, etc. This is something that is typically done for player that suffers an injury. It's GonNa, take them out six to eight weeks. Ten weeks happens earlier in the season that rule that. Idea has seen several modifications in several changes over the course of the last ten years or so. Now. You can pull players off of injured reserve. The IRA boomerang is people call it. But in the year two, thousand and twenty, there are no limitations. There is no maximum of players that you can bring back off of injured reserve because everybody is dealing with covid nineteen and so the NFL has no again limitations. So players can be brought back. They are placed on injured reserve throughout the entire season. Normally, players have to be on injured reserve for six weeks to be eligible to be brought back here in two thousand twenty, they only have to be on injured reserve for three weeks. So that is important for you to understand a similarly important thing is that players have to be on the fifty three man or astro when it is officially set like a just now has been at the time of this recording to be eligible to be placed on injured reserve to be able to be brought back after a three week period of time. So players that are on the couch 53-man Asta, there were about to talk about are eligible to be placed on injured reserve and then brought back. Three weeks, four weeks, whatever the case may be. We will definitely see the Dallas cowboys utilized this for several players I think. But let's get to the fifty three man roster if you wanna see it for yourself. You'RE GONNA head on over to blog on the boys DOT COM. We have the entire list there for you at the top of the homepage. A lot of our predictions were right here on the show and across her other shows. Let's begin at quarterback. The Dallas cowboys big shocker kept Dak Prescott and by the way. We did talk about this all of twitter there were sarcasm that was somewhat detected. Deshaun Watson the Houston Texans. quarterback did get a four year extension on Saturday morning averaging thirty, nine, million dollars a year. You might remember it was a little over a year ago now that NFL networks chain slater we've talked to her about this before here on the network and I've been on their show talking about it was you know Jane didn't specifically say the Dak Prescott wanted forty million dollars per year. But that became this ridiculous rumor that really got a lot of life for no reason whatever the case on that was would to shawn. Watson, getting thirty nine million dollars per year. Now I am not saying the Prescott is better than to Shawn Watson but this is the way that the quarterback market works. There is no doubt about it whenever DAK Prescott gets his long-term beyond whenever that day comes, he is unquestionably going to get forty million dollars per year, but that is A. Separate Subject Deck Andy. Dalton Bendon, achie- The new your three Dallas. Cowboys quarterbacks after the initial fifty three man roster has been set i. doubt. We see any real changes here? Honestly I don't think that into new cheese a practice squad guy I bet he just stays on the fifty three man or Austria for the duration of the entire season at running back the cowboys have three players. One of whom you have heard here on the Ocho over the last couple of months as you go Elliot Tony Pollard not any shockers by any means RICO DATA There was some thought that maybe there would be a different running back a third running back we tried to the cowboys might be in the running back market but for now, Rico data, a member of the Dallas Cowboys fifty three man roster at wide receiver. There were five names that were universally agreed upon that. We're absolutely going to be on the Cowboys Roster Amari. Cooper Gallup city lamb cedrick Wilson, and Noah Brown. Duh Duh. Then tell Bryant makes six as of now I would imagine the event Bryant might be one of those players that ends up on injured reserve, which would open up another Astra spot for the cowboys to find someone else at tight end I. Think we all knew that three players were absolutely going to make team play. Darwin. Dalton. Shelton Blake Bell of course. But Sean mckeown made the cowboys fifty three man roster. We will see how. That shakes out that one is a little bit more interesting. Maybe if Shonda impressed so so good for Sean but living on there are ten ofensive lyman on the Dallas cowboys as the initial fifty three man roster stands your starters tyrant Smith Connor Williams Joe Looney Zack Martin and Lyon Collins and then five reserves three tackles two guards one guard center. If you want come that Cam Irving Brandon Knight Terrence Steel Khanna McGovern in Tyler. Shout to my dudes in Lubbock on talk terrence still making the cowboys team they are six defensive ends moving to the other side of the ball. Again, nothing's shocking here demarcus Lawrence Tyrone Crawford Everson Griffen and Smith doorns Armstrong and Bradley Anaya. Now Randy Gregory Does Not Count Against The Dallas Cowboys fifty, three man roster. If you somehow misty, Randy Gregory was reinstated by the National Football League on Friday September fourth we wrote about that in several ways at blogging the ways dot COM If you want to go re does we also talked about it in a special emergency episode of the Ocho if you want to scroll back in your podcast feed and listen to that. But for now, there are six defensive ends on the team. We will see how the cowboys handle Randy's return. He is eligible to return when the cowboys visit Washington in a week seven Mike McCarthy has said that there would be four defensive tackles on this team. I really do wonder how things would Have Shaken out if Joe McCoy had ultimately stayed healthy and of part of the team but your four defensive tackles Dante Tristen Hill who Steven Jones taught I want to five through the fan had earned a starting spot on top of making the roster. There are people that thought he wouldn't even make the team in his second year Antoine Woods, and of course, this third round pick Neville gallimore there are five linebackers. This was a position that I think saw or the position I should. Say That, saw the biggest shock the biggest surprise when it came to fifty three, hundred Ostra decisions and roster cuts and things like that. You're five linebackers that as of now are on the fifty three man roster late in Vandross Jalen Smith shown Lee Luke, Gifford and Joe Thomas now, Francis Bernard. Not a member of that group. He was one of the roster cuts we had heard so much talk about and we'd heard late in Vandereycken himself talk about how Great Francis Bernard had looked You know, hey, the cowboys felt like could risk cutting him now maybe trying to stash on their practice squad now here's something to note here Sean Lee is a candidate to end up on injured reserve to begin the season that would obviously opened up another roster spot. You might have noticed that just in March is not a part of this five linebacker group at the moment according to the Dallas Morning News Justin March is expected to be part of the cowboys. Group come week one against the Los Angeles Rams. This is this is just procedural this roster construction this is we can get away with this. We can't get away with that. We can risk this guy, etc. so just in March for the moment for the time being in a literal sense is not on the Dallas Cowboys fifty, three man roster but very likely we'll be when all the dust settles. There are currently nine secondary players on your cowboys roster she who's A Jordan Lewis Anthony Brown trayvon digs, Darryl, Worley executive, your woods dairy, and Thompson Donovan, Wilson and Reggie Robinson the second. Now, we listed these secondary players because we don't exactly know which one's the cowboys are going to potentially move over safety. Are they going to play Darryl Worley and safety they're going to key bridge Robinson the second and safety are they going to sign Brandon car employment safety what is the case there they have still continued to just flirt with The idea of moving obey leuze there to safety. So nine secondary players as a whole now, you did not hear CJ Goodwin's name. He is in that camp with Justin, March not technically on the roster at the moment but very likely to return when all of this settles especially because John Lewis himself could be one of those players that ends up on injured reserve to begin the season. That is forty excuse me fifty fifty players altogether that we have named so far. Three left of course, three specialists. Chris Jones Greg's are line and L., P. Ladder. So that is your initial Dallas Cowboys fifty three man roster whatever happens whatever changes come. We will, of course, keep you updated a blog in the boys dot com we hope you have a fantastic, very safe and happy wonderful Labor Day. We can I'm Joe, Joe. You can follow me on twitter or Instagram at show, and you can do me a favor and have the absolute best weekend of all time in a way because you deserve it we will see many on my friends as always go cowboys.

The Ocho: Cowboys Draft Ben DiNucci at 231 Overall

"America what a world a welcome to another episode of the Ocho presented you in partnership as always SPF nations blogging. The BOYS DOT COM name. Rg Showa me. Of course from from writer as you're humble host on of the OCHO and welcome once again to be. Tv's coverage of the two thousand twenty NFL draft. We say we would be meeting after the cowboys made their seventh round selection and that has happened with the two hundred thirty first. Pick in the two thousand twenty. Nfl Draft The Dallas Cowboys selected. James Madison quarterback Ben Dinacci into the cowboys had been in the mix draft in a quarterback a lot of people mocked one to them at different stages in different quarterbacks etc but ultimately the cowboys Took a James Madison's Benvenuti and there's a lot to this honestly I don't you know there will be people that you know. Come up with takes. You know that. Say this is about Dak Prescott. This has nothing to do with that. You know the only reason you know you draft a quarterback if there's something wrong with your starter is you know you spend like a first or second round pick on that quarterback you know not to point any fingers or anything but this is this is really just about you know about depth. I mean Mike. Mccarthy has talked a lot about wanting to develop a quarterback and really talked about that after Thursday night and so talked about how that's kind of the model at the Green Bay packers us. You know dating way back to the nineties. You think about all the quarterbacks that were on that roster behind Brett Farve you know Matt Hasselbeck Kurt Warner once upon a time. Doug Peterson himself so I think this. Is You know the cowboys I think you know. A LOT OF PEOPLE WANNA sexy pick and wanted a name. You don't WanNa Thaddeus Moss at Lsu but remember. The cowboys did Sign Ben. Bell in free agency by the way Ben Friend of the show. You can go. Listen to our interview with him Way Back in the podcast but you know James. Madison isn't exactly a football powerhouse. For what it's worth but You know it should be mentioned. That Benvenuti transferred to James Madison from Pitt and in the aftermath of getting drafted by the cowboys showed some interesting details for example. Mike McCarthy if you did not know cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy from Pittsburgh and so obviously has a lot of family in the area. It was a big deal when the packers play the steelers in Super Bowl. Forty five obviously Benvenuti share that. His Eighth Grade Basketball Coach was Mike. Mccarthy's brother So interesting how life takes things full circle and by the way you know for what it's worth James Madison played in North Dakota State in the National Championship game. That game was at the Star so Benvenuti certainly familiar with the area And that building but I mean overall you know this is again obviously. The cowboys wanted to protect the NUCCI. That's why they drafted him then. Risk getting to a priority free agency so cool. It's quarterback and I don't think it's a bad idea to bring in quarterbacks to be developing because again Dak Prescott is the unquestioned starter for the Dallas Cowboys for the foreseeable future. But I mean the reality is their backup situation. Certainly certainly needs some Work if you want to call it that but but yeah and for what it's worth. The athletics drama showed it tweeted out that. Bendaoud she received interest from the Cleveland Browns and Chicago bears as well as the cowboys. About signing as an undrafted rookie. Free agent so you know if you're the cowboys. Look the cowboys already got an incredibly. You know just unbelievable draft class and so you get the guy you want. You spend the draft. Pick to get the guy you want. So good for the cowboys. Making sure they get their guy but that pick wraps up the two thousand twenty Dallas cowboys draft class again CD lamb trayvon digs Neville gallimore. Reggie Robinson Tyler Br Bradley UNAI and Benvenuti round out the seven players Dallas cowboys drafted the only extra cost beyond what we all knew. It was going to be in terms of draft picks fifth round pick in two thousand and twenty one which the cowboys traded up to draft in the fourth. Round and overall. I don't know that there's any reason to be upset about any of these things. I think the cowboys addressed all of their needs. Didn't draft safety but if you're expecting them to new haven't been following this team for that long and look. This is going to be fun. As mentioned we are going to be tracking all of the UNDRAFTED. Free agents they signed. Perhaps they find player there. It's well known how the cowboys have done. When it comes to priority free agency and they will also be fascinating to hear from Mike McCarthy Jerry Stephen in terms of you know how they pulled distract off etc and so we'll have tons of coverage available for you at blog on the boys dot com and on social and by the way speaking of social we have all of the twitter handles and instagram handles. If you want to follow the newest members of the Dallas cowboys you can head over to the blog and the boys twitter or instagram at blog in the boys is on twitter at blogging dot. The boys is our instagram. You can head over to my twitter or Instagram at our job. Show any one of those places and you can find that information because you know we know that you want to follow the cowboys. And whatever and there's going to be a lot of fun stuff on social and people make great edits of them and stuff and so we've got that information available for you as well altogether. I think you know I. It's hard to call any drafts a plus but I mean this is as close as it can get for the cowboys. Interests was an A. And people people will be upset or whatever about the NUCCI pick but look. That's the guy they wanted again. Mike McCarthy talked very very very much about wanting a quarterback to develop and he got his guy. I mean he got his. And what did it cost? It costs a seventh round. Pick so good for the cowboys. Making sure that they got the guy they wanted overall again. Just an incredible draft with the cowboys in many respects incredible job. I will mcclay the entire Scouting Department and in personnel group Jerry Jones and Steven Jones and of course Mike McCarthy and the entire coaching staff. It's it's going to be fine. I think this is GonNa be fun to watch this team. I think offensively you know they really don't have any holes. The only thing offensively left to address is the contract situation for Dak Prescott. Once that happens this offense is flying high and we should mention this another. Kelsey meg and special guests Dave. Helen mentioned this on Fridays. Girl's talking boys but our most sincere condolences to Dak Prescott on the passing of his brother. Certainly thinking of and praying for Dak and his family. I in you know what is obviously an incredibly difficult time for them. but You know defensively. The couch was definitely need help and safety but like we said they liked to roll needing help So you know that's their way. I think you know adding an edge. Rusher is certainly smart adding two quarterbacks as certainly smart adding another defensive tackle along with Joe McCoy and Terry Po-. There's there's not you know there's no real reason for the cowboys to to not compete at a high level. I mean not to compete at all and by the way as we're recording this a tweet popping up from ESPN's Todd Archer talking about the national championship game took place in Frisco. They've been to Nucci introduced himself to Mike. Mccarthy inside of an elevator at the Omni which is to hotel connected to the star Obviously you know Nucci News. Mike McCarthy's brother was his eighth grade basketball coach and whatnot. So pretty cool and you know. Sometimes that's how things happen. Sometimes it's those crazy connections. Not just football are the NFL but in life you know really sort of the the weird things. I'm sure you've met somebody in a weird way or whatever that led to a fine and interesting perhaps beneficial relationship but either way Bendon Uchi the newest member of the Dallas Cowboys. That gives them three quarterbacks now at Deck Prescott Cooper rush into NUCCI end. I don't know you know we'll see how and obviously a lot of the world is up in the air. But if there's a pre season you know If everything is normal I should say then. We'll see if Benvenuti balls out in this hypothetical preseason than maybe the cowboys can't sneak them onto their practice squad. Because that's been the case right. I mean the cowboys have not really been able to sneak the quarterbacks they've liked onto the practice squad and they've had to carry them on the fifty three man roster whether it was Mike White or even Kellen Moore before before he ultimately became the team's offensive coordinator. But this was this was a really fun draft and on the subject of the climate of the world and everything we're in it was really fun to experience with all of you. We appreciate so much everybody who has download and subscribe to and listened in Red Along in interacted on twitter and left US comments and watched on Youtube.

The Ocho: Cowboys Draft Bradlee Anae at 179 Overall

"America what a world welcome to another episode of the Oh Joe presented you in partnership as always an SPF nations blog the boys dot com my name. Arja Showa Nomi of course. Btv and from radio is your humble host onto the Ocho and welcome once again to be DB's continued coverage of the two thousand twenty NFL draft. The last time we spoke the Dallas cowboys had just made their second pick in the fourth round trading up with the Philadelphia Eagles to nab Wisconsin. Senator Tyler. That left the cowboys with only two picks left in the entire two thousand twenty. Nfl draft already made five selections to in the Fourth Round. Once again in case you somehow forgotten somehow missed it. The cowboys traded their first pick in the fifth round this year. Plus their two thousand twenty one fifth round draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles of all teams in order to jump up and NAB BE IDA shy to give them an option at center. With Travis. Frederick having retired but the cowboys did have a pick in the fifth round. Still after all that. One hundred seventy ninth overall pick has been made the Dallas Cowboys took Utah Edge Bradley. A Ni- with one hundred seventy nine th overall pick and there is a lot of reason to be excited about it. Bradley. I really just one of the more physical aggressive relentless edge rush options in the class and we hadn't seen the cowboys obviously address that group to this point but a lot of that was because the valued in necessarily make sense for where they were picking obviously Kayla. Von Chason was an option for the cowboys with the seventeenth overall. Pick before they took CD lamb but again the value didn't necessarily make sense more than city and the cowboys we saw took trayvon digs and then Neville gallimore on and on and on they just kept taking the players that made the most sense. We've talked about this several times. Everybody loves to talk about best player available and that really is a thing. However it's a thing married with team need and we've known that the cowboys have a huge need at edge rush. We know obviously Robert Quinn is now a member of the Chicago. Bears cows have to replace the eleven and a half sacks he leaves behind rally and I I think is a great step in that direction. Emory and who is a fantastic? Nfl draft analyst at F- Ball Football F ball game plan on twitter. Has I think the best tweet on this cowboys. Get my number one edge which is different from a four three and in Bradley? He plays a full sixty minute game. A now is a nonstop energy and relentlessness stellar senior bowl week by the way and I was a senior bowl. Mvp He's explosive off the ball really challenges and offensive tackle. The state technically sound off game strong hands at the point of attack basically Bradley. A Ni- is just a bull rush. I mean he's somebody that's going to throw everything he's got whatever tackle he's going up against and that's a really awesome option for the cowboys and now granted we still do not know technically the status of Randy Gregory or Alden Smith entering the two thousand twenty. Nfl season but with the cowboys. Drafting Bradley. I in the fifth round. This is what their potential pass rush. Group could look like. Obviously you've got demarcus Lawrence leading the way tyrone Crawford who a lot of people WANNA cut get off that crop need to be for salary cap purposes but demarcus Lawrence Tyrone Crawford dorrance Armstrong Joe Jackson. Last year's fifth round pick by the way who Jerry Jones was very very very high on through training camp and the preseason Jalen jokes seventh round draft pick now Bradley I Randy Gregory and Alden Smith that is solid solid solid group and I think you know there are so many people somebody well respected draft analyst the show Jona tolls had a great tweet talked about how he would have been thrilled if the cowboys had landed. Bradley with the Eighty Second Overall Pick. And you know you think about it and the cowboys to get him. Almost one hundred picks later is just incredible value. And I think if you had asked anyone maybe not in these particular terms but if you had said look you can walk away from this draft with CD LAMB trayvon digs and Bradley and I forget everything else if you had just told them that. I think they would have taken that. I think they would say you know what that gets me. A corner a high quality corner gets me a high quality edge rusher and that gets me perhaps the best wide receiver in the class. The cowboys drafting so much of a game of poker. If you've played poker you have to have a poker face. You have to have discipline. You have to have patience. And we've seen the cowboys exhibit that so with Bradley Anaya. They are getting somebody extremely extremely extremely special. He's somebody that I know our own talk in the draft. Connor lives is particularly high on. Connor's done an excellent job breaking down. All sorts of draft prospects has a guide out there. You can head on over there and by that when there are tons of draft grads are amazing by the way Dean Burglars is the Best Connors is awesome pro football focus. A great one obviously The addition of the Cowboys magazine they put out is a must have as well but Bradley and I again twenty two years old six foot. Three two hundred fifty seven pounds just a gigantic human being That didn't test well and that was kind of the reason for the fall. If you're wondering why did he make it all the way to one hundred seventy nine overall? Sometimes that happens and sometimes you know I'm not trying to say every two missed out on Bradley. Because if he truly was that that that special the cowboys wouldn't have taken that many chances in passing him over but sometimes teams can look at testing numbers and rely a lot on them and You know kind of talk themselves out of what might be a good option etc etc etc. You know how it can be but Bradley and the newest member of the Dallas cowboys newest edge rusher for the cowboys and the cowboys class. Now just I mean Shoshefsky man again. First round CD lamb second round Trayvon digs third round. Never Gallimore Fourth Round Reggie Robinson fourth-round again to trade of Tyler beyond dish and fifth round Bradley. Neither cowboys at the time of us. Talking right now still have one draft pick remaining their seventh round draft. Pick two hundred thirty first overall. Of course they could trade ABC trade out. Whatever you know. That's a recording. These kind of as the draft moves along. But the way you look at this or what you should look at this. The distribution on each side of the ball ride the cowboys have taken to offensive players only two positions that they really needed help in or wide receiver and senator. They've addressed both of those with the best center in the nation and the best wide receiver in the draft class and then on defense. They've addressed every area of concern. Except for safety they've got two corners and trayvon digs and Reggie Robinson they've got a defensive tackle to add to jail McCoy Dante. Repoed their free agency editions. And now they have Bradley and I an edge rusher. Do you wish maybe they would have gotten a different edge. Rusher certainly I mean maybe you were a Kayla. Von chason super supporter and really were bummed. For whatever reason that the cowboys didn't draft him at seventeen overall but again when you calculate the value here the cowboys have gotten by most measurements. Five of a lot of draft analyst. Top One hundred players. That is an incredibly difficult thing to do. And I know that we're all still in this moment and we're all looking at in saying. Oh my gosh to cowboys. You're having the best draft ever but based on the information that we have at hand right now because anything can happen in any players. Nfl career you know how it goes but based on the information that we have right now. The Dallas cowboys are absolutely dominating distracting. You have to wonder why I mean. A lot of people obviously trying to place credit here or there attributed to this factor that factor but either way the cowboys are collecting an enormous amount of value on enormous amount of talent and there somehow someway managing to do it positions. That really really really need it. So one pick left. Obviously there last pic- and you know it's hard to be able to get a lot out of a seventh round pick. There was some thought. Maybe the cowboys punter kicker. I mean that really is a need kicker not really necessarily given. Greg's early but you get the point Chris Jones. A spot has been debated for a while. Now the cowboys enough. They WANNA throw a seventh round. Pick at a safety at a quarterback. That wouldn't shock me. I think it makes some sense but either way Bradley and I again just an incredibly relentless is probably the best word and you. Don't get to use that word a lot with edge rushers Bradley and I again Utah Address. You know you're looking up. Some Youtube highlights make sure if you're on youtube by the way you subscribe to the official blog on the boys. Youtube CHANNEL THAT BRADLEY NEITHER. That's L Double E. NOT THE STANDARD SPELLING. Bradley and a Ni- a an a I thought you know. Just an excellent. Pick by the cowboys and again you know if they had taken them or taken him. Excuse me at eighty second overall at Jonas said. I think that I think a lot of us would have understood that. I think a lot of us would have said you know what that's great value. Right there So the cowboys really really really just handling the straps. So well and I think this this is. This is what we waited for. I mean this is what we wanted. This is sort of you cross your fingers and you hope that that draft is going to go as smoothly as the cowboys draft going so good for them and Good for them but As mentioned there is one more pick that we will discuss jump on And give you the rundown the one on one on whoever the cowboys pick a two hundred thirty one over also makes you subscribe to the blog in the boys pie case.

Safe healthy, and at this Humpty is glorious for you. It is training camp time. It is training came season. That means sooner rather than later.

Be Family, so make sure to subscribe to the voice podcast network wherever you get your podcast. We are available on all major podcast platforms, apple devices spotify tune in radio subscribe leave a rating, Rod Review we some fine plan. Some fun coverage things in store for you as the football season hopefully kicks off. Obviously, there's a lot of the season. Not In doubt, but that people are apprehensive about amid our current climate cove, nineteen, the coronavirus, and all that and something that is a bit of a news item here as of late in terms of the NFL, is players opting out. Players that are uncomfortable or have underlying health conditions or players who have people near them or around them in terms of their family, with underlying health conditions can choose to opt out. This is something that the NFL PA petition for and did a great job on honestly in terms of securing for the players now we've found out on Monday that Maurice Kennedy Free Agent. cornerback cowboys signed. This season has chosen to opt out because it is a voluntary down. He will be getting a hundred and fifty thousand dollars salary advance. We found out on Tuesday that undrafted free agent rookie wide receiver Stephen drew from Mississippi. State will also be opting out now. NFL Networks Tom. Sarah did report that undrafted free agent rookies not eligible to receive the hundred fifty thousand dollars salary advanced, but he also reported that there is some confusion that there's a lot of legal things going on, so this kind of. A moving sort of situation. A fluid situation is what I mean to. Whatever happens there? You can rest assured that we will keep you covered always at blogging, the boys dot com and our social channels in here on the podcast network, because there's a lot of happening frankly right now the veterans for the cowboys and the rest of the NFL save for Kansas City in Houston Pamela homes, one of those veterans who now is part. Part owner of Kansas, city royals amazingly. veterans did report on Tuesday take their tests took their test. How wars are hard and we'll have to wait and hopefully get the clear from that test and have to take them on their tests seventy two hours later, which is Friday take that test, and then get an all clear, and then they can begin. Strength and conditioning, etc, etcetera, etcetera, and as far as meetings go. If the meetings go over a person limit, you know all. These situations, obviously, we've all heard from different leaders in different realms. They will have to do those virtually in his socially distanced way so a very very very unique training camp experience for the NFL this year. So I'm recording this at about four PM central time on Tuesday. I'm always. Fully transparent about that because this does change on a minute by minute hour by hour basis, so if you're listening. Early Wednesday morning and something else happened. That's why you know. Sometimes news drops a late, the old, proverbial, five o'clock news dump or whatever you WanNa, call it, and if it happens, and it's big enough. Don't worry. We will have an emergency episode of the OCHO available for you as always but. There are some high profile players opting out across the NFL. Notably among the New England patriots, dont`a hightower Tony and I talked about this in the seven five hours well Patrick, Chung I'd. Just so strongly dot to hightower doesn't get enough credit for his contributions to the more recent. New England Patriots Dynasty. You know Dr Hightower. marshawn Lynch at the goal line before Malcolm Butler's interception. It was dont`a hightower who caused the Matt Ryan Fumble in Super Bowl. Fifty one without that key piece that whole comeback does not happen, but people look at the Malcolm Butler. Pay People look at the Julian at home and catch and. There's a lot of ways to look at it. The GRONK catch against the rams in Super Bowl fifty three right. So dot to hightower missing the season is is a big deal. Eddie Goldman of the Chicago bears will miss the season opting out as well. So. There's a lot going on i. mean there truly is a lot happening across the NFL star low too late I mean there are some big names that have chosen to opt out. There are some big names that are still free agents I. Think Everybody's looking at. You have cloudy and Everson Griffen. See where they end up, but. We'll see the Dallas cowboys I was reported last week. In the fall out of the maybe it was two weeks ago now of the Dak Prescott situation at the Dallas cowboys would like. To add another piece or to the words Tom Cerro on rapid podcast, but. The contractual situation with Dak Prescott makes those things complicated. Wow, I wonder who could have resolved that but. So other news in terms of the cowboys having to do with their roster, it is worth noting. That every. NFL team must get down to eighty players because that is. How training camp is going role. Typically, every roster has ninety players this time of year, but it is going to be eighty in an effort to. Not have as many people around s possible. We talked about the ramifications of that we talked about how all of a sudden that's three hundred twenty people across the litter out of jobs, and it really is unfortunate and the Dallas. Cowboys have gone that process on Tuesday was reported that Jordan. Chandi running back who's been with the cowboys for the last two years and Garett Marino, the offensive linemen are being waived. I think either of these are shocking. I don't think that either of these are moves that are going to decimate the cowboys. There at one point in time has been a contingency of people that have thought join Chun could be something special, but look I mean if you're running back on this team, not named Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard, the reality is you're probably not going to make the roster ever since Z has been part of this roster. It's really just been Zeke and a little bit else right I mean it was early-on. Darren McFadden had a hard time getting on the team once Zeke. Was well established Lance Dunbar? There? Was that going on? And then it became Alfred Morris and then. Tony Pollard and his rookie season, not being used as much etc.. So it's Zeke. It's Tony Pollard. It's Zola. Wally and that's about it when it comes to. Ball carriers for the Dallas Cowboys, but all the best to Jordan China, and Marino in other news along with roster sort of updates, the dallas cowboys. We've all been talking about one particular player. That people have had confusion on. People have wondered. Whether, he will be backed people you know WanNa know What's the situation here, etc? Well. Antoine Woods is now back with the Dallas. Cowboys are friends or DALLAS COWBOYS DOT COM David. Hellman reported that antwon would sign his exclusive rights free agent tender. What is that? I've seen the acronym E.. R. FA RJ I really don't know what it means. I'm confused. What does that mean well? In. This off season was an exclusive rights free agent for the Dallas Cowboys. Here is the definition of that well definition. Here are the layman's terms, any player with fewer than three accrued seasons and expired contract if his original team offers him a one year contract at the League minimum based on his credited seasons, the player cannot negotiate with other teams, basically, if you're an exclusive rights, free agent or a restricted free agent, the team that you are playing on or Heaven, playing on has just about as much control over you contractually as they could possibly have, so the Dallas cowboys have really been in a situation where they weren't going to lose Antoine Woods unless they really wanted to. In. Clearly they do not, so. They brought him back. On his tender and he is now in the mix. We've seen him by the way if you follow all these great trainers. All the cowboys defensive line that had been working out Alden Smith been working out in the same capacity as Antoine Woods, and so that's exciting, but when Tony I did our defensive line fifty three man roster prediction? We left Antoine off, and if you go back and listen to that again. Tuesday's episode of the seven five Oh Tony did petition for Antoine Woods I just cannot see the cowboys keeping more than four defensive tackles. That's just kind of the way Mike McCarthy, his role in his career and I mean you get to four rather quick. I mean you've got your McCoy. You've got Dante Repo. You've got Neville Gallimore, and then you've got interest in hill but. Tristen Hill. Added here Bro I will totally keep Anton Woods over Tristan Hill I get that. But the business of the NFL plays a factor here and Tristan Hill. The reality here is younger seemingly has a higher ceiling at this point. In is still under a rookie contract that offers the cowboys three more years of team control. So his contract situation are friendlier to the analysis convoys. Antoine Woods's maybe. Maybe. The cowboys carry five defensive tackles. It seems unlikely to me. Maybe they just want another body for training camp I. Don't know it's hard to tell but. Either Way I. don't see it happening, but I would totally. Be over to the possibility of being proven wrong there especially, because Antoine Woods has been a really good player for the cowboys. At different points in his career over the last two years, but but Antoine. Woods is back Jordan Chon. Marino have been waived. There are now two cowboys are reportedly intent on opting out, and that's kind of where things stand through Tuesday of this week again it is training camp season, and it doesn't feel anything like that. I totally understand because these are such unique and interesting times. But that is that is where things are now. It is also worth mentioning that we should know by the end of this week the very beginning of next week what players are opting out across the NFL, and because there are some legal, you know situations involve to your as as we mentioned earlier, it's likely going to take the next couple of days to fully find out who's opting out. Why etc? What the distinctions are going to be because there's so much so much is up in the air. We are likely going to be finding out more opt-outs as the week rolls on, but. But rest assured there whatever happens whatever news drops concerning the Dallas cowboys.
