    After December’s ‘highlight reel’ touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles, it seems Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar was looking to hone his flying skills Monday at iFly in Frisco. Escobar was joined by safety Jeff Heath as they gave sky diving a try. Knowing that jumping out of plane isn’t such a good idea with OTA’s just around the corner, the two were filmed safely by Cowboys broadcaster Gina Miller at the indoor sky diving facility.

    would really like to see him add some upper body strenght this off season. I don't expect him to be a crushing blocker but would like to see better blocking from him. I think this is an important off season for Escobar to take the next step.

    Escobar could potentially be a real offense weapon with that combination of height and athleticism.

    If he can convince Jerry Jones to try sky diving, I would do a complete 180 on that draft pick.

    For all of the talk about getting help from the draft, traditionally you expect for last year's draft to provide a big leap in what they can contribute, as most rookies don't do a whole lot. Unfortunately for us, our top picks were on offense, and I don't know if Esco even got enough playing time to build on.

    I hope he becomes someone who can do work in the seam and dictate single coverage for Dez- Witten doesn't play real tall and prefers to sit on shallow routes. Good for when you don't have a run game or o line, but Escobar can help us by keeping safeties on their heels. He will be a good player for us, sure would have liked Warford tho

    Traditionally, one of the areas where you expect players to make the biggest gains between their 1st and 2nd years is in strength, which is exactly what Escobar needs. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    I'm hoping the new TE coach pays some dividends this year.

    He'll be gone by round 2, we only draft TE's in round 2.

    I'm glad the article came with pics. At first, I was afraid Blake Griffin had slapped a jetpack on him.

    Does he ever close his mouth? Seems he is breathing through his mouth every time I see a picture of him.

    very true. it's not really hard to make guys stronger. but blocking is more about technique than strength. he needs to work on learning how to use leverage and perfect his technique. the strength will come but it takes many hours of work to refine the skill of blocking and since he did very little in college he has alot to learn. i think he can learn and will be a nice asset this year. he did'nt get many chances last year but the ones he did, he did a nice job of getting production

    Just asked a question based on an observation. Don't think I stated or inferred that it was relevant to anyone other than myself.
