Cowboys' second-year TE John Stephens Jr. could be a sleeper

From Blogging the Boys:

"While he is listed as a TE on the Cowboys depth chart, his background is that of a wide receiver. That kind of versatility could make him a unique mismatch weapon for Dak Prescott and Mike McCarthy to utilize in a variety of different ways this season. Of course, that all depends on how he's able to rebound from his ACL injury."

"So far, the signs are pointing to Stephens Jr. being on track to suit up in some capacity when the Cowboys report to training camp July 24. While it's true the coaching staff will probably take the cautious approach and ease him into things to help prevent any kind of setback, it's also true his return to the field will be met with much anticipation."

With the Cowboys needing help at receiver, Stephens will be an intriguing player to watch.
