At the Cowboys' first minicamp practice Friday, McGee showed why he became such a hot prospect. Wearing jersey No. 7, McGee threw the ball really well and exhibited good accuracy.
McGee struggled with injuries in college, and though he clearly has natural ability, he still needs plenty of time to hone his skills. He will have that time to grow in Dallas behind Romo and Kitna.
Ogletree was one of the best athletes at the NFL Scouting Combine, and in addition to his impressive physical tools, he flashed great ball skills and route-running ability at practice. Williams also made his mark and was outstanding in the bag and pursuit drills.
While the rookies are in focus during minicamp, there was another noticeable addition to the Cowboys' practice facility. Team owner Jerry Jones has built an edifice he refers to as the "Taj Majal" on the east side of the field. He can entertain all of the Cowboys' sponsors at the air-conditioned, three-story building that also contains a massive television set and a top-floor area for photographers to take aerial shots. The only thing missing is an elevator.
