Share “Cowboys thin at receiver”

/> And there will be unlimited chances to impress the coaches in the last structured workouts in front of them until August.

Here are three pass-catchers with the most to gain in spring practice:

Josh Cooper: The primary position for the sophomore-to-be from Mustang is the slot, played in 2008 by Davis and Bowling, so the opportunity to step to the forefront at the position is optimal.

→Blackmon: The Plainview High School product generated as much buzz as any redshirting freshman in 2008. The door is open for someone to step in as the No. 2 receiver opposite Bryant, and Blackmon has loads of talent.

→Jamal Mosley: The tight end has been an important piece of the passing game, and the coaching staff obviously likes Mosley in that realm. He had five catches as a true freshman, with his primary playing time coming during the span when Pettigrew was injured.
