Reggie Robinson Stands Out in Dallas Cowboys First Training Camp Practice

It would be difficult for any rookie to make an impact their first year with a team after as soon as the player is drafted, the team changes his position. That was the first year for Reggie Robinson, who the switched from to in 2020, only to leave him on the sideline when the team struggled to find healthy cornerbacks in the second half of the season.

With a new and a fresh start, Robinson was moved back to cornerback, his college position. Through one practice out in , California, it appears that Robinson is impressing.

In the , you can see several starters in the 11-on-11 drill. , , , , and Blake Jarwin all flash on the screen. It's in coverage of Blake Jarwin that Reggie Robinson can break up the pass in the team drill.

Heading into year two, Robinson has a huge opportunity in front of him. Only is a lock to start or get significant playing time at cornerback in 2021. That leaves the other outside cornerback spot and the slot wide open for a new face in the . Even with the additions of , , and in the , Robinson still has the talent to force his way onto the field.

If he can continue to build upon his early success, he could push for a starting job in 2021. There's a lot of to go, but the second-year cornerback out of Tulsa appears to be off to a good start to training camp.

Sam

It was disgraceful that he never got a defensive snap last year on a team that was destined for failure.

The coaching staff is incapable of seeing the big picture in coordinating player development, roster building and cap management.

Nothing worse than a terrible record and still NOT taking advantage of the opportunity to play the perceived bottom of the roster.

Could it be that the owner (front office mgt.) or looking over the shoulder of coaches too much ??

I would agree with Sam except for one caveat … as bad as the team was last year, they were actually in a playoff hunt right up until the very end. I could care a less about what the fandom thinks may have happened in the playoffs had the team won the East, because the No.1 prioirty is to win the division and secure a spot in the party! The entire team should have been solely focused on just that.

The argument made for Robinson last year can also be made for Anae …. yet for whatever reason, the staff didn’t see enough to warrant giving them playing time on a bad team. That may actually speak to the player, and not the staff?

I feel like Lewis and Brown should be first out in the CB room. Id like to see the Cowboys give Robinson, Wright, Joesph and Canady opportunities. Our D was so bad last year except for a few people(Gregory, Gallimore, Diggs, Wilson, Lawrence) that we should be looking at all fresh faces on Defense.

The secondary as a whole was atrocious last year. I’d like to see the Cowboys go to a single high safety, like the Ravens did with Ed Reed. Never let a WR get behind you!

This just shows how bad Mike Nolan was and is. Glad we have DC Dan Quinn. He seems to have common sense with defensive players. There will be significant improvement this season. He already cleaned up M.Nolan’s mess once before.

..Quinn will make Dallas defense top 12. Get us into post season.
