Joseph Randle, the running back out of Oklahoma State taken by the Cowboys in the fifth round, had little trouble describing his game.
“Being versatile,” he said. “I do everything well: running, blocking. I take pride in my blocking. I take pride in being able to catch, and I take pride in being able to make tough yards and make people miss one-on-one.
“That’s just my game in a nutshell right there.”
The Cowboys will count on it in case he has to spell starter DeMarco Murray, who has missed nine games in his two years in the NFL.
“The NFL is a two-back system now, so guys need other guys to come in, and you don’t want to drop the tempo off much, so I think we’ll work well together,” Randle said. “I’m just going to come in and work hard and see where that gets me.”
