Big ups to DallasCowboys.com for actually writing some articles about the players at rookie mini-camp and not about Billy P and Eldorado. But Grizz - you might ask - haven't you been writing about Billy P and Eldorado? Yes I have, but if I could attend practices and get interviews in the locker room, you can bet the ranch that's what I'd be writing about.
First up from dallascowboys.com - Bobby Carpenter. The Tuna's personal waterboy has been fetching him water at mini-camp and reportedly doing a good job with it.
OK, we got that cleared up. Bobby knows the role they have in mind for him.
There's more about Carpenter in the article so check it out.
Next they cover some of the rookies in this article.
New FS Pat Watkins is a details guy and wants to stay ahead of the game. He even wanted to stay in Dallas after the mini-camp but NFL rules say players have to go back to college until the semester officially ends.
I like the way Watkins is thinking. Cory Procter is kind of a forgotten guy on our roster, but the offensive lineman got some ink today.
Procter, along with only a few other teammates - including second-year outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware - recently cleaned 400 pounds during the ongoing off-season workouts.
It would be nice if someone like Proctor, Colombo or Peterman had a break-out training camp.
Everybody's favorite new Cowboy, Montavious Stanley got some ink, too.
Love to hear that, but 7th round draft choice E.J. Whitley to care of business right after that.
The other 7th round draft pick, Pat McQuistan, gets his own article and it's a good thing Parcells doesn't have requirements about hair-length or McQuistan and Carpenter would be in trouble.
Walking up to the man is intimidating, to say the least.
That's great and all, but we just need to know if he can block. At least we know what position they want him to play.
