    Tyrone Crawford said he sees himself as a defensive end, which is where the Cowboys have tried playing him during the OTAs and mini-camp.

    “Yeah, I loved it in college. I loved playing on the outside in college,” he said Wednesday after a mini-camp practice. “And then being able to go inside and play tackle a little bit. I’m happy we got into this year and are doing it.”

    Crawford said he has trimmed down to 285 pounds, the target weight the Cowboys wanted him to aim for this year.

    It’s where he played in college at Boise State, and where he feels good.

    “Yeah, I loved it in college. I loved playing on the outside in college,” he said Wednesday after a mini-camp practice. “And then being able to go inside and play tackle a little bit. I’m happy we got into this year and are doing it.”

    We were told earlier in the spring that Crawford was up to 305. Now with Kiffin here he down to 285. Definately sounds like a DE and the replacement for Spencer when he leaves after this season.

    So he bulked up and slimmed down? Sounds like a LDE alright.

    I wonder if this reporter misunderstood because Broaddus is where the 305 number comes from and it's recent and he even pointed to Crawford on mini camp live about how much bigger/stronger he is at around 305. He was 285 last season

    It was reported in today's DMN Cowboys update column as well that he is at 285.

    This certainly changes things at DE and you could be right on the money.
