Dallas Cowboys preseason: The good, the bad, and the ugly
By Broe Reeve
The Good – Ezekiel Elliott
Zeke hasn’t played in the preseason, but he has been putting on a show in training camp and at Cowboys practice. At the first team practice at the star in Frisco, Zeke looked like he was in a different gear. He’s kept himself in shape this off-season and it is noticeable on the field.
The Cowboys have been getting him the ball more in the passing game, and Zeke has shown he has nice hands and can help the offense pick up some of the slack. Zeke is set up for a massive workload and looks like he’s more ready than ever to put the offense on his back.
The Good – Receiver Depth
What the receivers may not have in star power, they make up for in depth. This is a deep group and a really good football player may wind up not making the 53-man roster. The Cowboys have a versatile set of receivers and might surprise some people this year.
Michael Gallup looks like a draft day steal and should get a chance to make some plays this year. He has been a standout in training camp and also caught a touchdown from Dak against the 49ers in the Cowboys first preseason game.
Allen Hurns has turned some heads as has Tavon Austin and Lance Lenoir. This is a crowded receiver room and while they may not have a go-to-guy, the sum is greater than the parts
