Jason Pociask to get chance at fullback
Now, Pociask is trying to make it as a fullback after being switched earlier in the week where his competition is Chris Gronkowski, who is in his second year, and rookie Shaun Chapas.
“Pociask is a little bit like the other tight ends,” coach Jason Garrett said, “He has the versatility to where he can play the true ‘Y’ position, the ‘F’ tight end position and we think he can be valuable at the true fullback spot. We want to give him the best chance to put his best foot forward and show some versatility in playing some different position, and we want to see if we can create some competition on our football team.”
Because the Cowboys ask the tight ends to do some fullback work, Pociask said the position was not completely foreign to him but that it requires more focus because it is new. He even got a carry in a practice the other day.
“I think I saw it right,” said Pociask, who said his only other carry came on a tight end reverse in high school, “but they said I’ve got to keep my pads lower.”
