Pollard shows some skill between the tackles and has the speed to break long runs. Memphis featured Pollard as a receiver and runner in its offense. Look for the same in Dallas. Because of the Cowboys' offensive line and surrounding skill talent, Pollard has the upside to thrive if Ezekiel Elliott gets hurt or the holdout continues into the season.

Summary

By not re-signing Rod Smith, the Cowboys created a wide-open competition for the No. 2 and 3 roles behind Ezekiel Elliott. GM Stephen Jones sung rookie Tony Pollard's praises and it's clear he'l get an opportunity to earn a role. Pollard was primarily a gadget player in college, and his film is unconvincing if you're trying to project him into a 5-10 carry role. (August 9)
