Why Cowboys fans shouldn't worry if Jeff Heath starts at safety; this rookie catches your eye

Why Cowboys fans shouldn't worry if Jeff Heath starts at safety; this rookie catches your eye

Aren't we getting to the point where it'll be too late to have someone other than Jeff Heath start at safety?

Jon Machota: I don't think the Cowboys view that as a problem. Heath was outstanding during the first minicamp practice, picking off two Dak Prescott passes. Like Kellen Moore and Terrance Williams, Heath is another guy the Cowboys have a lot more confidence in than the fans do. From everything I've seen and heard, I'm expecting Heath to be one of the starting safeties Week 1.

Which rookie has impressed you the most so far from what you've seen at these practices?

Jon Machota: Chidobe Awuzie. He can play several positions and he appears to be at least solid at all of them. Obviously they weren't wearing pads when we saw them, but he catches your eye. His knowledge of the game is off the charts. I think he'll end up being one of their most valuable defenders, maybe even lead the team in interceptions.
