    Josh Brent was fairly impressive after joining the Cowboys as a late addition to camp last year, and his style is more similar to that of a traditional nose tackle than starter Jay Ratliff.

    But that doesn't mean Brent is counting on taking a big leap in 2011. The supplemental seventh-round pick from a year ago will likely start Thursday's preseason game with Ratliff nursing a hip injury, but believes his snaps will again be limited once Ratliff is healthy.

    "I still have a Pro Bowler in front of me," Brent said. "He's the best nose tackle in the NFL. So until I become the best, pretty much, I don't think I will be able to step on the field as much as people think I will."

    His role needs to increase. He has a high ceiling. This could be a starting caliber player. We need to see more.
