Dez Bryant Provides Immediate Test For Cowboys Young CBs

When you're new to something, it's always good to have an elder presence around to show you the way.

That goes for anything in life, whether it be your typical 9-5 desk job or for the .

The Cowboys is young. Very young. With at least two rookie cornerbacks expected to make the roster and a second-year corner being depended on greatly in , the Cowboys feature some serious “pups” in their back end.

But, luckily for those pups, they have to face a seasoned dog each and every day at practice. That dog, is .

The seventh year receiver out of , Dez Bryant has enjoyed a great amount of success thus far in his career, and has learned how to win along the way. Now as the veteran of this young Cowboys team, he seems to embracing his role.

Even if that leading is by example, and by bullying these young corners a bit.

Dez spoke with's David Helman yesterday about this young secondary, and gave a fantastic quote.

To hear points like these straight from Bryant's mouth is exciting, especially considering how competitive he tends to be on the field. For Bryant to go after these young corners day in and day out is important for their growth as football players, as they will rarely have to cover more talented players than Bryant on Sundays.

As the pads come on and the season gets closer, it will be interesting to see which corners go right back at Dez Bryant, and which ones shy away.

I think it's safe to say that the way they respond to, and cover Dez Bryant in practice, will go a long way in deciding who gets to start week one when comes to town.
