There was talk that the Cowboys coaching staff wanted to play Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick at the safety position but Scandrick wants no part of that.
“Not happening,” Scandrick told Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “Brodney Pool, Gerald Sensabaugh and Barry Church are our safeties. Orlando Scandrick, Morris Claiborne, Brandon Carr and Mike Jenkins are our corners.”
Career Stats: 293 tackles, 17.0 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, and 3 interceptions at Montana.
Pros: Extremely tough and competitive. Very consistent, hardworking, and durable. Plays hard and competes.
Cons: Has short arms and tight hips. Average athlete with marginal foot speed and can be outflanked to the perimeter. Can be a liability in man coverage and cannot keep pace with running backs. Very quick to read and react…physical take on at the point of attack…knows how to use his hands to control and play off blocks…nice slide and shuffle down the line of scrimmage…stays active until he finds the ball…then fills the hole…will bounce off blocks…plays on his feet…don’t see him get cut or get tangled up in the trash…always moving…can get outside when the ball spills…is a wrap up tackler…looks comfortable in zone drops…able to get in position to play the ball down the field for an interception…able to leap at highest point to snag the ball…Against Idaho State had to adjust out of the middle of the field to try and help in coverage on a receiver that went vertical up the field, was just a step away from making an impressive play on the ball…used as a blitzer…had a sack against Tennessee when the scheme called for him to run a stunt…made a tight path to the quarterback.-Bryan Broaddus of Dallas Cowboys.com

Cowboys Inside Linebacker Bruce Carter took the first-team repetitions next to Sean Lee during Wednesday’s OTA workout at Valley Ranch.
“He’s really come into the offseason program and embraced it,”
“He’s gotten better physically. I think he’s healthier than he was last year at this time certainly. You can just see he’s getting more and more comfortable. He needs to play more football. He needs to play at a higher level, both in terms of his understanding of scheme and also just how you play relentlessly. That’s how you play football. He’s starting to understand that. You see flashes of that. He just needs to do it more and more.”-Jason Garrett
