Top 5 Cowboys Players in Preseason
At DMN, I listed by top five Cowboys players thus far in the preseason. Here is who just missed the cut:
Just missed the cut: Chris Jones, Mario Butler, James Hanna, Tyron Smith
– I was skeptical when the Cowboys let punter Mat McBriar walk, but Jones looks like a more than capable replacement. He’s got a huge leg and, unlike McBriar, he’s actually quite athletic.
– Butler has been all over the field thus far in preseason, particularly against the Chargers. He has cornerback/safety versatility that Rob Ryan will be sure to love.
– Hanna has looked explosive off of the line and out of breaks. He’s a natural receiver and reminds me a lot of Aaron Hernandez in New England.
– Breaking news: Smith actually whiffed on a block against San Diego. It was the only negative play I’ve seen from the second-year stud this preseason.
Not-so-spoiler alert: Victor Butler made the list.
