The Dallas Cowboys drafted versatile Wisconsin interior lineman Travis Frederick in the first-round of the 2013 NFL Draft and he could be moving around the offensive line early in his career. According to head coach Jason Garrett, Frederick will be receiving reps at guard and center during training camp as the team finds the best place to give him his first NFL start.
“He has a comfort level with that, so we’re going to look for opportunities starting here in training camp to be able to do some of that,” Garrett said, via the Star-Telegram.
If Frederick shines at guard during camp, that would allow the team to keep Phil Costa, who has plenty of starting experience, at center.
The versatility from Frederick is a big reason for the Cowboys drafting him in round 1, so if he makes a start at guard, the Cowboys would still have an improvement along the offensive line which is all that they can ask for.
