Talk around the Cowboys is that the team enjoyed one of its most productive, consistent preseasons in recent memory.

Competition.

“This camp was probably one of the best I’ve been a part of, other than the year Weeden was here and we won the Fiesta Bowl,” said Cowboys running back Jeremy Smith. “But man, when I say there are competitors out there, there are true competitors on this team.”

Smith said he saw it across the squad and also in his position group, where Desmond Roland, Caleb Muncrief and true freshmen Corion Webster and Rennie Childs are all in the mix for playing time.

“Dez is coming along really good,” Smith said. “He’s a backup now and he has to be ready. And he’s going to do good. These freshmen are coming along. I have to stay on them. Coach does, too. But they’re actually good.”

Tracy Moore said he’s witnessed the same at the receiver spots, where a core of veterans is being pushed by the next wave.

“The younger guys are definitely committed,” Moore said. “They accept coaching, even from players like me. They don’t talk back. They want to learn. They want to be better. They want to be good.”
