    I like the kid. I would love to see him add some serious beef this off-season, though.

    I think he is a young talented player who saw limited playing time. As for size he is not the 1st or last guys who people claimed was too small. We will just see how he holds up

    Hey, I went to school/played ball with Gerald McNeil and he was no bigger than a Smurf. I think he did okay in the NFL.

    There are a host of players today and former players who were told they were to small, not fast enough and some even in the HOF.

    Heck Wes Welker was UDFA who people claimed was too small and too slow, not many people claiming that now

    I don't know what Cole will do in the NFL but I know he has very good quickness and has shown very good hands. Time will tell how he is able to hold up to the rigors of the NFL

    I agree. The kid has something the Cowboys can at least nurture. Get him in the weight room and see if he can put on some beef.

    He WAS tiny.

    I'm not sure he ever had an NFL reception either.

    And although he was a serviceable return man, he never had a season as good as Harris did this year.
    Ice Cube was fun to watch, but I'm not sure he was a great success.

    McNeil ran a 4.35, so he had real wheels.

    The problem is that Welker outweighed Beasley by 20 lbs at draft time.

    Until Miles Austin is off this team, he is the fourth receiver barring injury. He played good enough to challenge for that next year.

    Hopefully Danny Coale comes back from his litany of injuries next year and they make that fourth spot a hard decision for the coaches.

    2-3 inches taller too.

    I still would like to see what he could do. More out of curiousity than anything.
    We talk about opportunities, but in his limited time at least two of his targets resulted in interceptions. Careful what we wish for.

    And again many players have been called to small yet manage to beat the odds. I don't know if Cole will or will not but I don't think any of his critics can say for sure he can't do the job.

    Thus far he has shown he can do the job in limited action in terms of durability only time will tell.

    I think he can have a niche role in the offense out of the slot to help move the chains on 3rd down.

    I agree with this. At best right now, he's a guy you use in 4/5 WR sets where you're able to dictate a favorable matchup or coverage for him. I like him but i think we definitely need to add talent to the WR corps especially if Miles and/or Ogletree are let go.

    he's too small and doesn't have the fortitude to overcome that

    Don't have a problem getting rid of Smiles and Otree, but Harris and Beasley aren't going to take their place.

    I picture Beasley going over the middle vs Seattle and having his life ended

    He's a little small, which means you have to throw the ball lower to him over the line, which means balls thrown to him are at higher risk of being intercepted. That's not to say short guys can't play, but I'll take Dwayne Harris in the slot over Beasly. With that said, I still like Beasley.
