But some interesting things are there if you squint hard enough.CDTShareTweetShareShareA look at the roster of players participatingin Cowboys rookie minicamp Connor McGovern wants to prove he can play all five OL positions.Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY SportsIt has begun for the Dallas Cowboys. OK, the rookie minicamp is literally baby steps, but yesterday marked the first real day of the Cowboys march to the 2019 NFL season. It is the first look the staff has at the newest members of the team, even if most of them will not make it to the 53-man roster. This is used by the staff for teaching and introducing the Cowboys’ schemes and plays to the new players. There are walk-throughs, but no work by the offense against the defense. Right now, the biggest goal is helping the rookies handle the flood of new information while adjusting to their new life. There are also several “first-year” players who get to attend despite not being rookies, mostly based on them not being on a 53-man roster last year. They benefit from the extra work, and are all fighting for a chance to stick with Dallas after training camp.A total of 31 players were in attendance.Now, it is hard to derive true intelligence about what the team is up to, but a few things stood out to me.First, there were only two players invited in for tryouts, at least to start. The team could always add more, but it was interesting that they brought in a fullback. That looks to be as much to let them be able to put the offense on the field to practice sets involving the FB as anything. Joe Prothereo is no doubt dreaming of breaking through Dallas Cowboys Jalen Jelks Jersey , but given the three-year deal the Cowboys gave Jamize Olawale, it is highly doubtful that the newbie has any real shot at all. Phillip Nelson is in the same situation, given that it is rather hard to do anything at all without a quarterback in the mix. But unlike Prothereo, Nelson could have a shot at getting invited back for camp. Dallas really needs a fourth arm for camp to keep from overworking the three QBs already on the roster. It will cost someone else a shot, of course, but such is the reality of the 90-man camp limit. And Nelson needs to make a good impression, because the team can easily find a vet looking for a chance to show what he has to take that role.Also interesting is who was not added to the mix. There was no place kicker, and it is almost certain that one will have to be brought in for the same reason they need one more passer. And that will be something to watch in camp, because we all remember what happened last year when Brett Maher unexpectedly supplanted Dan Bailey. But there is no reason to try to identify one in the minicamp, since a kicker’s tryout doesn’t require any other players other than a holder and long snapper - and can be done without even that, since a coach could hold the ball for him. It does raise the question of just what they will do with long snapper Drew Scott, since they don’t have a punter in the mix, either. He may have to do a lot of work by himself Womens Jalen Jelks 2019 Jersey , although they could practice some special teams sets without actually having a punter or kicker back there for him.And the Cowboys are just using one tight end in Codey McElroy for this. That may not be any real indication, but for some of us (waves hand in the air), it offers a tiny bit more hope that we are going to see some real changes under offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. It would seem to indicate that they aren’t going to do much if anything with “heavy” sets in this rookie camp. And it might be a sign that the team will only carry five TEs into Oxnard, which just fuels the idea that things will be a bit more wide open under Moore, with perhaps only three on the 53-man roster. There won’t be much coverage out of the practices, and as mentioned, it is not going to be a heavy workload, at least from the physical aspect. But we will eagerly wait for any and all tidbits, no matter how small. It’s football! (Sorta.)Meanwhile, you might enjoy this clip from the mothership of the new draftees talking about coming to the Cowboys.And here are some reactions from after practice. 12 PM ET #6 Michigan at #24 Michigan State on Fox - Have Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines arrived or will Sparty have their number again?Michigan just got a big conference win over Wisconsin but it’s so hard to trust them, especially on the road. They are 1-1 on the road and this Michigan teams runs a little hot and cold. Besides, the Spartans have won nine of the last ten games against Michigan though they have consistency concerns of their own. The Spartans will have to protect the football if they plan on upsetting again this year:What to expect: Michigan has made their way into the Top-10 and have a leg up in the BIG-10, it’s time they finally deliver. Give me the boys from Ann Arbor by a touchdown.3:30 PM ET #16 N.C. State at #3 Clemson on ESPN - These two have a flair for tight contests with each other Dallas Cowboys Jalen Jelks Jersey , can the Wolfpack upset the Tigers?N.C. State has one of the nation’s top passing attacks and they face off against one of the best defenses in the country in Clemson. The Wolfpack are undefeated but if they want to be taken seriously, it’s time to beat a ranked team, why not Clemson?What to expect: Clemson is going to break the Wolfpack’s heart in the fourth quarter with a seismic score on a turnover.7 PM ET #22 Mississippi State at #5 LSU on ESPN - Coming off upsetting Georgia, LSU must continue power push in the SECLSU is only favored by 6.5 points? Even after knocking off the #2 team in the country? That’s because folks are feeling a letdown here as the Tigers may be looking ahead to Alabama. Don’t get caught being sluggish in this one because fans all over want that LSU-Alabama showdown to be between two Top-5 teams. The Tigers will have to make plays on defense against a Bulldogs offense that has shown it can contend.What to expect: It’s time for the Tigers to step up and their quarterback Joe Burrow gets it done in a big way this week setting up a showdown with #1 Alabama to start November.7:30 PM ET #2 Ohio State at Purdue on ABC - The Buckeyes defense can’t afford to struggle with a Boilermakers offense that could make them payIt was a tough start to the year for the Boilermakers trying to figure out who was going to take the reins at quarterback but David Blough stepped in. The Buckeyes defense needs to show out after Nick Bosa has decided to not return to the program. Their defensive struggles aren’t simply because of Bosa’s departure, they have been allowing too many explosive plays: What to expect: Though Purdue’s offense can put up big numbers and their defense is legit too, the Buckeyes aren’t letting this opportunity at the playoffs slip through their fingertips. Buckeyes win by 10.7:30 PM ET #12 Oregon at #25 Washington State on FOX - Can the Ducks maintain PAC-12 momentum or will Cougars put on an air show on Oregon’s defense?The Ducks have been a great story as of late, rising to the top of the PAC-12 but Mike Leach and Washington State is not going to let them off easy. The Cougars are far less prone to mistakes like the Ducks have been. Washington State have outgained their opponents 2,913 to 1,867 while outscoring them 251 to 143. That Oregon secondary will need to be on high alert:What to expect: This game has the smell of an upset coming and Mike Leach is going to make it happen. Who needs to run when you can pass all day long? Cougars by a touchdown.You can find the full slate of college football games right here.
