For the past month, the Cowboys have held three OTA sessions that were three days each. These sessions are important, especially with the Cowboys trying to install a new offensive approach under Kellen Moore. But these sessions were all voluntary. Still, the Cowboys had a very good record of attendance. As noted by the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys had some absences for specific reasons, like Jaylon Smith working on graduating from Notre Dame, but otherwise the Cowboys had almost everybody there. Sean Lee sums up the Cowboys buy in.There’s also a very practical reason for players to be there , at least most of them. Fear of losing ground against the next guy up who is trying to take your job. Now it’s mandatory, but there will still be some guys who won’t be present. Old friend K.D. talks about some of the absences due to injury in this article.The DMN also notes that Allen Hurns, Connor McGovern and Chidobe Awuzie have injury issues that could affect how much they participate in minicamp. The three-day session coming up is the last big item on the schedule until training camp begins on Saturday, July 27th. You can never have enough pass rush"Miller also does a good job with his hands when engaging blockers. His long arms (35 1/8” long) allow for him to get great extension against linemen, and his high motor keeps his feet active to get good leverage. Miller is quick with his arms, shooting out to stun the blocker and drive them back. Furthermore, Miller also knows how to break free and disengage from the lineman, either to move around him or get after the runner. To that end, Miller also has an impressively deep repertoire of pass rushing moves. It seems as if he knows every single move in the book, and he’s mindful to employ all the different moves with enough frequency to keep opposing tackles guessing. The issue here is that while Miller has a deep set of moves Taco Charlton Jersey White , he’s not always fundamentally sound in executing his moves. At times, he can play outside of himself and get a bit crazy, which allows for tackles to handle him easier. Miller wasn’t used in run defense too much, as the Crimson Tide sought to utilize his pass rushing skills as much as possible, but Miller looks good against the run. Just as he uses his length and active hands in pass rushing, Miller is able to get off blocks rather cleanly. It’s hard to tell just how good he is at processing plays and diagnosing where the ball is going, given his low usage as a traditional linebacker, but Miller has the athleticism and lateral agility to move around the field.

In the open field Amari Cooper Jersey White , Miller probably can’t be relied on too much as the sole tackler, but coming off the edge that’s rarely the case. Still, Miller has some good short area quickness to where he could be more than just an edge rusher. In fact, the Cowboys might be looking at Miller the way they once looked at Kyle Wilber, which to say a linebacker/defensive end hybrid. Miller has the size and quickness to hold down a serviceable role as a SAM linebacker in base packages and switch to defensive end in pass rushing downs. However, unlike Wilber, Miller has much more athleticism, pass rushing prowess, and burst off the line of scrimmage. If the Cowboys were to take Miller, regardless of how they plan to use him Womens Michael Gallup Jersey , he’d be able to carve out a role early on in rushing the passer in sub packages. If Dallas also likes him as a linebacker in base formations, he’d form a nice trio with Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith as well. Regardless, Miller is a tantalizing prospect that could significantly improve the Cowboys defense. If they want him, they might have to use pick 58 to get him, as players with the kind of pass rushing skills as Miller don’t tend to last too long.
