The Dallas Cowboys have now completed their third training camp practice, players on both sides of the ball are making strides. Early on, several players have shown why they deserve a starting spot or ways to contribute to the team at their respective positions.
One player, in particular, Tight End Blake Jarwin, who missed 15 games in 2020 with a Torn ACL, is back on the practice field and picking up to where he left off. Quarterback Dak Prescott has always spoken highly of Jarwin and the chemistry the two developed when on the field.

When Jarwin went down week one last season, backup tight end Dalton Schultz emerged as the starter and put the league on notice as he became a reliable option on offense. Schultz showed sure hands, blocking ability and was very dependable on a 6-10 Cowboys team decimated by injuries.
For his efforts, he may have a chance to be the starter for the upcoming season.

Jarwin is more fluid, athletic, while Schultz is the better all-around player as he can block and assist in the run game on the edges. So far this offseason, there has not been much talk if Jarwin will enter the season as the starter. Do not forget about Schultz, who will look to build on his breakout season and earn a starting spot.
We are in for an exciting offseason to see how this position will play out. The Cowboys have a good problem on their hands as offensive coordinator Kellen Moore can line both players up in different packages. Opposing defenses will have issues game-planning for both players as Jarwin can get upfield with great agility while Schultz can move the chains consistently.
