    The dead period of the offseason has settled in at Valley Ranch. But all the Cowboys’ rookies stopped in earlier this spring to talk about the whirlwind of the offseason program. Chief among them was second-round pick Gavin Escobar, who spent his spring in the considerable shadow of Jason Witten.

    Having finished a large chunk of the offseason program, what’s the biggest difference between this level and college?

    Escobar: Everything is magnified a little bit more – the tempo is a little faster, everyone takes it a little more seriously, meetings are a little bit longer. Everything is a little more important, and everything is a little step above what it used to be.

    Do you feel like you’ve been able to settle into a rhythm in such a short timespan?

    Escobar: I’m getting the majority of the playbook, the basics down. I’m getting more comfortable with the terminology as well – it’s making more sense. Being able to compete with these guys has become a little more normal than it was.

    You’ve finally had a chance to work alongside Jason Witten for a while. How has that been so far?

    Escobar: He’s a pro, so he’s not joking around at all out there or in meetings. If I’m doing something wrong, he’s going to let me know on ways to improve – little things to be conscious of. And when we’re in the huddle together he’s making sure I’m doing what I need to be doing. Just little things like that.
