Quick Thoughts on Dallas Cowboys Final Organized Team Activity

Organized Team Activities are in the books! Throw a parade! Seriously. This means that we just checked off another thing from our to-do list. We are that much closer to the 2015 season!

Coach Garrett spoke to the media before today's and expanded briefly on the current state of the team. Dez Bryant (who still has yet to sign his franchise tender) and (rehabbing in Alabama) were both still absent. Coach did give us two things to sink our teeth into. has seen some looks at (although that's not exactly ) and fellow rookie has seen more repetitions at than he has at . Collins has been thought since his to be the potential starting for the team. Perhaps the team is drinking that kool-aid.

In terms of what we saw on the field at Valley Ranch, the starting defensive line scared me more than Jurassic Park (am I the only person who finds that movie terrifying?). lined up at left end, at the right, and and filled in at the tackle spots. Obviously second year player (who didn't practice today) will be in contention for that left spot, but that defensive line sounds and looks formidable. If these guys can get it together, under the guidance of , they can be an elite unit. Can you imagine the battles between them and the ?

Speaking of that offensive line the first team drills saw Darrion Weems at right tackle, is still rehabbing and not practicing, and at left guard. I don't read a lot into this as Free is still tender and Collins is being eased in. I'm excited to see draft pick get in there and would like to see him get some action with the starters to see what he's made of. Perhaps at training camp. Or on my team.

The position has been under the NFL microscope all offseason. did not practice and Darren McFadden, nursing a hamstring, wasn't a full go. This meant lots of repetition for , and the more work with the full first team he can get the better.

looked great. Randle tried to give him a juke and Sean didn't bite. Lee's instincts have always been phenomenal so hopefully with OTAs behind him he feels great physically and is past that mental block. He spent the final twenty minutes of drills participating in the 7-on-7 drills so he's very hungry for football action.

The Cowboys' mandatory three-day mini camp is next week so we're all going to have to hold our breaths until then. That'll be an exciting time as hopefully we can see some faces that we haven't out on the field. Can't wait!

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!
