Ogletree Gives Cowboys A Lot To Think About

Who would have thought that we would be talking about a free agent rookie named Kevin Olgetree after the first three preseason games? Ogletree, an undrafted rookie from Virginia, has been the biggest surprise of the preseason for the Cowboys. On Saturday, he continued to show the quickness and soft hands that has made him the top candidate in the battle for the fifth receiver spot on this Cowboys roster behind Williams, Crayton, Austin, and Hurd.

Heading into camp the receiver position has been surrounded with questions concerning Roy Williams and his ability to step up and lead this team. Few thought we would be debating whether the Cowboys should keep an undrafted rookie over 4th year receiver Isaiah Stanback. Stanback has done little to impress anyone this preseason, including catching only one ball and fumbling it away on Saturday against the 49ers. Couple that with his injury problems during his short career and it looks like this competition could be over.

One thing is certain, if the Cowboys want to retain Ogletree they will have keep him on the roster. Ogletree has shown too much for the Cowboys to sneak him onto the practice squad. I would say the Cowboys have some thinking to do.
