Wideout Eric Rogers – Speaking of division III players, it could be argued that Rogers is actually have a better camp then anyone currently on the Cowboys roster, outside of Dez Bryant. The 6’3, 210 lb undrafted rookie from Cal Lutheran is doing the one thing that translates well at any level of football: he is simply catching the ball. Obviously, there is a monster of a learning curve to overcome to make the jump from division III. But Rogers has shown the raw talent and dedication to give him the benefit of the doubt. Remember Dwayne Harris two touchdown coming out party in the preseason a couple years ago? Rogers could be the next in line.
Tight End Andre Smith – Considered to be one of the top blocking tight end in the 2011 NFL Draft, Smith spent most of his first two years on the Chicago Bears practice squad. He was then claimed off waivers last mid-season by the very tight end heavy Indianapolis Colts. Despite being placed on the active roster in December, he was never activated for a game. Smith now finds himself in Cowboys’ camp. And much to the delight of coaches and fans alike, Smith is actually a good player and solid pass catcher. He is making his case for the Cowboys to keep more than just four tight ends this season.
Running Back Lance Dunbar – Despite being one of the smallest players on the field, Dunbar has had one of the biggest impacts during the Dallas Cowboys training camp. Firmly planting himself as the back-up to DeMarco Murray, Dunbar has impressed and showcased his overall game. He used his speed, quickness and pass catching abilities to outrun fellow half backs Phillip Tanner and rookie Joseph Randle to the second squad promotion. I would not be surprised to see Dunbar as the Hall of Fame game`s MVP.
