As the Cowboys rookies continue to work through Rookie Mini Camp, the franchise made the announcement Friday that they assigned jersey numbers for their .

It will be interesting to see if Smith can live up to those expectations, but you're likely not going to find that answer till years down the road.

Jumping to the other assigned jersey numbers, 2nd-Round Draft Pick Sam “De” Williams landed No. 54, and you could argue that is another interesting number since he will have to live up to the names of and , both MVPs for the Cowboys in the 1970s.

Lastly, No. 50 was handed to Linebacker . Fans will likely recall seeing run all over the field with the number, so we can only hope Harper does the same.
