Cowboys second round pick Gavin Escobar says he learned a lot in rookie mini-camp but admits that he still has plenty of room to grow before his rookie season kicks off this fall. Luckily for him, he has two knowledgeable and willing teachers in Tony Romo and likely future Hall of Famer Jason Witten.
“During individual drills I’d try and look at [Witten’s] feet and his footwork,” Escobar said, per ESPN Dallas. “He’s one of the best. I’m just trying to learn from him.”
Sidelined after undergoing surgery to remove a cyst from his back, quarterback Tony Romo took on the role of coach during this first session of OTAs this week, and he took time to give some pointers to his newest tight end.
“It was little things, just running routes on air that he thinks will be helpful,” Escobar said. “Kind of more like the next jump up in level, there are little things that you’re not even conscious about or aware of and he’s telling me about them.”
