Ari Temkin (@arisports) and Patrick Conn (@patsportsguy) discuss the first week of Cowboys padded practice. What are the takeaways and how much can you really learn about a team through training camp? Plus, how concerned should we be about injuries to Tyron Smith and La'el Collins and should Cee Dee Lamb be retuning punts? Roy White from Blogging the Boys joins Cowboys Beat to discuss his impressions of training camp and guys he expects to step up in 2020.

 

00:25

How much stock should we put into training camp practice production? 

2:02

Are there some players where training camp practice production is more important? 

2:47

Are we buying the success we’re hearing Trysten Hill is having in Cowboys training camp practices so far?

3:43

There seems to be no correlation in the NFL to having successful training camps for individual players and success in the regular season. The bigger things to watch for are personnel, schemes and if younger players, or rookies play like they belong or are they overmatched?

5:40

Did Dak Prescott take a shot at Jason Garrett, Kris Richard and Rod Marinelli? Or was Dak meaning something else with his comments?

7:30

The defense is so intriguing because of the questions that need to be answered on the Cowboys defense schematically and then from a personnel standpoint. It’ll be interesting to see who starts where, especially in the secondary.

8:21

Some injury news out of Thursday’s padded practice, LT Tyron Smith left practice with an injury and La’el Collins still hasn’t practiced with the team. How concerning are these injuries along the Cowboys offensive line?

 9:43

Since 2015 Tyron Smith has not played in more than 13 games. How concerning is that?

 11:54

The importance of these practices for the Cowboys? Why training camp practices have a different value for the Cowboys in 2020 than most other organizations in the NFL.

13:53

Are you okay with Cee Dee Lamb returning punts for the Cowboys in 2020?
