        That wasn't very nice to do to poor Bob, though.

          I remember when Mschmidt claimed that Sean Lee wasn't handsome enough to ever become a team leader...

                Yeah, from what I have seen, it's nothing.

                        • Byron Jones showing he's a fit for Kris Richard's style

                          FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys passing game coordinator and defensive backs coach Kris Richard likes what he has seen from Byron Jones as the fourth-year player makes the move from safety to cornerback in 2018.

                          “He’s long. He’s got strength. He’s got speed. He can jump over this place,” Richard said. “He certainly does fit the profile.”

                          One play in particular from Tuesday’s minicamp practice stood out.

                          In 7-on-7 drills, Jones worked in press coverage at the line on Allen Hurns and was able to reroute him enough. He stayed on Hurns’ inside hip down the field, putting him in perfect position to correctly knock down a Dak Prescott deep ball with his right arm.

                          “You’ve got five yards, we want to be physical,” Richard said. “We want to keep our hands clean after that and then again we can’t disappear once we get past five. So we do have the right to our position on the field so long as we maintain our leverage, maintain our position on the field so we’re not fouling. We can’t disappear.”

                          On to more observations:

                          There’s just a difference when Sean Lee is on the field. He took part in individual drills for the first time this offseason and he just doesn’t let things slide. When things got a little sloppy, he yelled, “details, details.” With Lee leading the drills, it was as if the linebackers knew their dad was watching.

                          Terrance Williams, who is recovering from offseason foot surgery, ran off to the side under the watchful eye of director of rehabilitation Britt Brown. The expectation is that Williams will be ready to go for training camp but the Cowboys will likely work him into drills over time after not practicing all spring.

                          Zack Martin was on the field during individual drills but did not take any team snaps. Kadeem Edwards, who spent last year on the practice squad, served as the first-team right guard. He is the third starter the Cowboys have used with Martin not taking part in OTAs, behind Chaz Green and Marcus Martin.

                          The Cowboys’ punt returners Tuesday were Tavon Austin, Cole Beasley and Trey Williams.

                          Speaking of Austin and Beasley, the Cowboys ran multiple plays with them on the field together, both lining up out wide with Hurns in the slot and Geoff Swaim tight to the line at tight end.

                          Orlando Scandrick was an effective blitzer off the slot in his time with the Cowboys. Anthony Brown has been working as Scandrick’s replacement in the nickel and had a sack of Prescott in team drills. The defense was able to stop the offense in the situational work in part because of Brown’s sack but both Ezekiel Elliott and Hurns had drops on the drive too.

                          One thing Prescott has done a nice job of this offseason has been changing his cadence in drawing the defense offside. He was able to get Jihad Ward to jump, allowing him to take a deep shot to Austin. The pass fell incomplete, but Prescott knew he had a free play to take a chance.

                          Charles Tapper, who missed the final few OTAs with a concussion, was able to pressure Cooper Rush after bowling over Green with a power move.

                          • 5 takeaways from Day 2 of Cowboys' minicamp
                            BY DREW DAVISON
                            June 13, 2018 03:18 PM

                            Another day, another sloppy practice for the Dallas Cowboys' offense.

                            More dropped passes became the storyline of Day 2 of minicamp on Wednesday.

                            "It's a work-in-progress," quarterback Dak Prescott said. "We're not anywhere where we want to be, but we know the strides we need to make. We know where we need to get to, so we’re not going to stress too much or get too frustrated over a few drops here and there. Obviously I missed throws, so it’s part of it.

                            "But we’re definitely getting better. That’s the main importance of this right now."

                            On to the observations from Day 2 --

                            1. Drop sequence. As stated, the Cowboys offense struggled to catch passes on Wednesday, particularly during one stretch of seven-on-seven drills.

                            Backup quarterback Cooper Rush threw a strike to Rod Smith, who bobbled it and had it broken up by linebacker Damien Wilson; rookie Michael Gallup dropped a pass by Rush; and then rookie running back Bo Scarbrough had a drop, borderline fumble, on a pass from fellow rookie QB Mike White.

                            It wasn't a promising performance by the offense.

                            2. Strong D. As the offense struggled, the defense shined.

                            Safety-turned-cornerback Byron Jones made a couple noticeable plays early on. He dropped what should have been an interception on a poor throw by Prescott to Gallup, but rebounded the following play with a nice breakup when Prescott tried to go back to Gallup.

                            Duke Thomas, a cornerback and University of Texas product, made a nice pass breakup, and linebacker Jaylon Smith knocked out the ball from tight end Geoff Swaim on a would-be reception during seven-on-seven drills.

                            Finally, second-year cornerback Jourdan Lewis came down with an interception on an overthrown ball by Rush intended for rookie Cedrick Wilson.

                            3. Beasley's TD. The offense did flash at times, though, and one of the highlights was Rush connecting with Cole Beasley for a touchdown. Beasley ran past cornerback Jourdan Lewis on the outside, and Rush placed a perfect ball for him.

                            That play excited the rest of the offensive players near the end of practice.

                            4. Praise for Austin. It hasn't taken Tavon Austin long to make a positive impression on the Cowboys. He's become one of the leaders in the wide receivers room and his versatility has intrigued offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.

                            Austin has the ability to line up in the backfield, outside or in the slot. He's the type of weapon the Cowboys haven't had in recent years.

                            As Prescott put it, "He's a steal."

                            5. Conditioning work. The Cowboys have been running sprints at the end of practices, something that Prescott praised.

                            It's not something the Cowboys have done in the past, but it's being embraced by the team despite the high June temperatures.

                            "It's definitely different but everybody on this team is embracing it," Prescott said. "That's how you win. You've got to be conditioned first and know what you're doing. That's kind of the main reason we're doing it."
