Dallas Cowboys 2012 Minicamp: Undrafted SMU Receiver Cole Beasley Shines

Dallas Cowboys scout Bryan Broaddus is keeping a minicamp blog over at the team's official site, and is impressed by the early play of undrafted wide receiver Cole Beasley out of nearby SMU. Beasley's tiny size - 5-foot-9, 175 lbs. - was a setback for the receiver even at the collegiate level, so it's newsworthy that scouts are high on the diminutive slot receiver early in camp:

Where Beasley's smarts are going to serve him well is when he has to learn both the inside and outside positions at receiver in this offense. I really believed that his height would limit how much you would see him on the outside when you have guys like Holmes, Ogletree and Radway on the outside but today Beasley took some reps on the outside with Austin inside in the slot.

Beasely had 79 catches for 954 yards and a league-high 7.2 receptions per game in 2011 for the Mustangs, which led Conference USA.
