Dallas Cowboys draft pick grades following the Oxnard portion of camp
By Brad Austin
FOURTH ROUND – DALTON SCHULTZ (TE)
It’s unfair to be too hard on Dalton Schultz as the Cowboys home site commentators blew up his hype far above his draft status. Schultz was the 10th tight end selected in the draft for a reason. He has shown ability, but both his blocking and receiving game need much time and reps. If being honest, Schultz trails all three veterans.
FIFTH ROUND – MIKE WHITE (QB)
Just like Schultz, the main site again over-hyped a developmental caliber rookie. Expecting the 8th selected passer in the draft from small school Western Kentucky to stiffly challenge back-up Cooper Rush was wishful thinking. White hasn’t done much to keep the critics at bay, but he still deserves time to develop.
SIXTH ROUND – CHRIS COVINGTON (LB)
Chris Covington is battling Justin March-Lillard for the final linebacker spot. He has contributor potential and special teams worth but this group may be too talented.
SIXTH ROUND – CEDRICK WILSON (WR)
It’s hard to assign any real value to Cedrick Wilson after his season ended with an injured shoulder during the team’s first practice in full pads.
SEVENTH ROUND – BO SCARBROUGH (RB)
Bo Scarborugh hasn’t locked down the third running back spot. Though he’s flashed enough ability in practice and one game to hold a narrow lead over other contenders.
