If the Dallas Cowboys have anything going for them on offense, it’s that they have explosive players all around. Tony Romo’s a good quarterback, they have stable of solid running backs and they have the weapons at tight end and wide receiver to exploit any defense. The receiving group is so good right now in Dallas that they might not keep one of their 2012 draft picks.
According to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com, Danny Coale, last year’s 2012 fifth round draft pick is on the bubble to make the Cowboys roster. MacMahon believes that Coale, along with second year pro Cole Beasley and veteran Anthony Armstrong are fighting for one, possibly two receiver spots after Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, Terrance Willaims and Dwayne Harris.
Coale didn’t show much in his rookie season because injuries robbed him of his opportunities to show his skills. He had a stress fracture in his left foot during organized team activities last May and then tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on November. This offseason Coale still hasn’t been able to get onto the practice field and has been doing only rehab work thus far.
That should all change in a few weeks when training camp opens for the Cowboys. Coale boasts a great set of hands, the ability to make tough catches and find soft spots in the defense, so it will be interesting to see what he can do in camp. Dallas loved his potential last year and felt like he could make a impact as their fourth or fifth receiver last season.
It’s a new year for the Cowboys and Coale, who will be battling it out with Beasley and Armstrong for what could be one of the last roster spots on the team. It could all come down to the how many receivers the Cowboys want to take with them in 2013, five or six.
Danny Coale will finally get his shot on the Cowboys this season, the only question is, will he make the team or not?
