    Let’s start at the tight end spot, where new position coach Mike Pope may be delivering dividends as hoped. He made his recent reputation with the Giants, turning tall no-names like Kevin Boss and Hank Ballard into productive second options to bigger names like Jeremy Shockey.

    In Dallas, he’s tasked with polishingJason Witten’s game and getting at least one of James Hanna or Gavin Escobar to approximate Witten’s level of play. Make them become the next Boss and make significant catches and blocks. If necessary, get them to be at least adequate in the starters role should Witten go down for a spell.

    Escobar seems to have seized the lead in this audition. He’s demonstrably bigger this year, having added muscle to his upper body. He’s applying that strength in special team’s drills and in passing plays from the 12 package. Yesterday, in the camp’s first session with pads, Escobar was throwing his weight around in kick return drills, showing value as a wedge player.
