OTAs have begun for the Dallas Cowboys and teams around the NFL. Naturally, most of the talk concerning the Cowboys right now centers around quarterback Dak Prescott.

Prescott is participating in team activities and appears to be ahead of schedule in his recovery process. It is difficult to not get excited about number four back on the practice field and throwing the football.

There is also some noteworthy news on the other side of the ball. It is no secret how badly the Dallas Cowboys need to improve in the secondary. Trevon Diggs and Donovan Wilson offer some promise. Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis bring experience. Kelvin Joseph is not lacking talent.


A 2020 Cowboys draft pick has some fans excited. 2020 fourth-round selection Reggie Robinson II has been moved around in the secondary since entering the league a season ago.

The Tulsa product was initially drafted to be a corner in Dallas. Then, he was moved to safety in hopes of the coaching staff finding a real answer at the position. Now, it appears he is moving back to his original position.

Robinson was reportedly moved back to corner last week, according to Mike Fisher of Cowboys SI. The coaching staff appreciates that the rising second-year defender has been willing to learn multiple positions in the defensive backfield.

On Tuesday, Robinson was able to showoff his skills at cornerback. Based on multiple tweets from Tuesday’s practice, Robinson turned some heads in coverage. David Helman says Robinson — and 2021 third-rounder Nahshon Wright — “jumped out”.

It seems evident that the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff is doing what it takes to find a place on the field for Robinson. The Cowboys spent the 123rd overall pick in the 2020 draft on the defensive back out of Tulsa. For reference, draft guru Dane Brugler ranked Robinson inside his top-100 prospects.

With the need for a playmaker in the secondary, it makes sense for the Cowboys to do all that they can to find a role for the rising second-year player. Robinson had a lot of fans going into last year’s draft, and it was seen as a steal for the Cowboys to have gotten him where they drafted him.

If early returns from OTAs are any indication, it appears that Reggie Robinson is making the most of the opportunities that the coaching staff is giving him.
