Cole Beasley, a free-agent signee from SMU, made a handful of notable catches during Thursday’s session, including a deep route against cornerback Teddy Williams. Beasely (5-foot-8, 177 pounds), who grabbed a team-high 86 catches for 1,040 yards in college last season, acknowledged he will have to lean on intangibles to land a spot on the Cowboys’ roster.
“I always wanted to be 6-2 like everybody else, but I didn’t quite make it. So I have to make up for it with my quicks. I can jump a little bit,” Beasley said. “Any player in this league has to have confidence to play out here. You can’t go out there timid. You have to go out there like you can beat the man across from you. That’s how you win ball games. But you’ve got to do it, or else you aren’t going to make it.”
