The Cowboys are touted as strong playoff contenders in 2020. Here is what youngster, Trevon Diggs, said about his team’s prospects ahead of the 2020 season.
“I’m betting on myself. It’s just decision making. I feel like when I make that decisions, I’ve made it so I got to make that play. If I don’t make that decisions, I have to be there to make a play on the ball. If I do choose to make that decision, I’m betting on myself that I;m going to make that play nine times our of 10.”
“I can run routes too. I’m running the routes as a DB like a receiver, so when the breakdown I know when to breakdown and things like that. I watch Deion Sanders every day. I watch Patrick Peterson every day. I’m trying to get my game like theirs,” Diggs told Dallas Morning News.
Here’s what star quarterback Dak Prescott had to say about Diggs.
Dak Prescott on rookie CB Trevon Diggs: “He’s a great player. Very athletic. When the ball’s in the air, it’s just as much his as it is the receiver. He’s a special player. … He’s always talking to me after practice about what I’m looking for, what can he do to get better.” pic.twitter.com/ehOSANTv9R

CeeDee Lamb is really, really good says rookie Diggs
In addition to that, here’s what Diggs said about his teammate CeeDee Lamb who was drafted in the first round this year.
“I feel like he is [as] good or better than the receivers we had [at Alabama]. All of them are really good, but CeeDee is really, really, good. If he was at my school it would have been crazy. It would have been fun because we would have had all these good receivers at my school. But he is really good. His speed, his quickness, his hands, his routes — everything.
He is a good receiver and I see it. I didn’t get to face a lot of good receivers when I was in college. I faced them in practice. Was always getting work in at practice. I wish I would have played him when he was at Oklahoma and they played [us] but I was injured. But him being here now, I can see all the time, he is a really good receiver,” Diggs said.
The Cowboys start their 2020 campaign with an encounter against Los Angeles Rams. The two teams will face each other at the LoFi Stadium on September 14, 2020. Will coach McCarthy start his tenure in Texas with a win?
