CeeDee Lamb, Trevon Diggs Standing Out in Cowboys Training Camp

    After the concluded the word around the NFL is that the had a great draft. Arguably the best in the NFL. Not only were they able to find value in their selections, often selecting players that were graded higher than where they were selected, but they found players that could have an impact in their rookies. In particular, and are two players that could play a lot of snaps for the Cowboys in their first year in the NFL.

    Based on early reports, things are going very well for the Dallas Cowboys top two draft picks, CeeDee Lamb and Trevon Diggs. Both players come in with a lot of expectations. CeeDee Lamb was one of the ten best players in the draft and fell to the Dallas Cowboys at number 17. Many pegged Trevon Diggs to be a late first-round draft pick, and he fell to the middle of the for the Cowboys. Diggs, in particular, is tasked with being the long-term replacement for former Cowboys' .

    There's often a lot of hype about a rookie draft class, especially your first and second-round picks, but it isn't often that they're making plays early in . There's been an emphasis this on creating a scheme that allows players to attack the football and adding players that can create turnovers, especially in the . has been impressed with Trevon Diggs in the early going.

    Trevon Diggs started his career at Alabama as a before making the conversion to cornerback, so attacking the football should come very naturally to him. His “ball skills” are what everyone has raved about, and they're already showing up. Per Jane Slater of NFL Network, Diggs had a pass breakup on a deep ball from to .

    Though disrupted the offseason for the NFL and its new crop of rookies, it comes as no surprise that Diggs has made a smooth transition to the NFL game, at least in practice. As the younger brother of Wide Receiver Stefon Diggs, Trevon was able to workout with his pass-catching older brother this offseason. Stefon is one of the best route runners in the NFL. So even in informal workouts, Trevon was still getting put to work.

    The buzz around CeeDee Lamb began to grow several picks before the Dallas Cowboys even went on the clock, and it hasn't subsided since. I can't remember a time when Cowboys analysts, media members, players, and fans were all in unison about a draft pick, but that's what's happened. And Lamb hasn't disappointed. 

    As you can see from Jori Epstein of USA Today, Lamb was able to create some separation on Cornerback in practice yesterday. Not surprising, Lamb was an excellent route runner in college, and his combination of size and speed makes him very difficult to cover. Whether in the slot or on the outside, Lamb is poised to take the league by storm. Unlike most situations a rookie wide receiver steps into, Lamb won't be asked to carry the load for the passing , but he'll have a huge impact nonetheless. Just ask .

    It's important to follow trends when assessing the performance of these players in training camp practices. Players can be up and down depending on the day and depending on what the team is working on that particular day. However, the early reports about Trevon Diggs and CeeDee Lamb are revealing that the Cowboys' first two picks in the 2020 appear more than ready for the task at hand.

    No surprise those two are showing out. They might be the best athletes on the team. Tremendous skill set on both. When they learn the nuances of the NFL game look out!

    I think extreme athleticism tends to pop out, especially in training camp setting. But CB tends to have a bit of a learning curve. However, with our CBs being less then dominant, it wouldn’t surprise me if Diggs wins a starting spot. If the competition is close, I say throw him out there and let him go make plays.

    I’m going to trust the new coaching staff to make the appropriate choices for who plays what and where, go Cowboys!
