Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sure has been praising first-round pick Felix Jones a lot. He has even commented on his rear end, showing just how close the ubiquitous owner is to the new guy.
Most recently, he’s called Felix “smooth.”
But he also is high on Tashard Choice, the Cowboys fourth round draft pick. In an article here, Jones says Choice is quickly adapting to the Cowboys offense.
“He’s able to do anything you ask a running back to do,” Jerry Jones said of Choice. “He’s exceptionally smart. He’s got a chance to have a role here. We know that he’s been a very productive back and hopefully he can bring that with him to the NFL.”
So how will these two rookies do competing for a job they both want?
“We have a good relationship,” Felix Jones said. “We met at the [NFL scouting] combine and clicked. He’s somebody I can talk to and relate to. We’re going through the same thing. We’re going to compete out there on the field but in the locker room, we’re friends and we’ll communicate. We talk about things.”
