Jaylon Smith has spent most of his offseason back at Notre Dame, taking 21 hours of classes. On Sunday, he will earn his degree in Film and Television. “A wonderful experience,” Smith said Wednesday night at the Reliant Home Run Debry at Dr Pepper Ballpark. “When I left after my junior year I promised my mom that I would go back and finish, so finishing my third year with the Cowboys, it was time. So 21 hours, it was very stressful, but life changing. I'm excited to walk across the stage this weekend.”

Travis Frederick said his strength, “feels like I'm back, close to if not full strength,” after missing last season with Gullain-Barre Syndrome, but he will not take part in team drills in the upcoming organized team activities and June minicamp because of shoulder surgery. When training camp starts in late July he expects to do everything. “I think that's where we are in the point of recovery and I think that's going to be an important step to my return, being able to go through (practice in pads) and there's going to be rust,” Frederick said. “You're going to have to knock the rust off during training camp and get back to doing those. You can do the movements on air as much as you want but it's not until you're going against a live person that you feel football.”

At his Block out Hunger Foundation event at Top Golf in The Colony Tuesday, Travis Frederick helped raise more than $30,000 in an auction of teammates' jerseys, a helmet and donations with more expected to be raised as the night went on. Frederick's Nourish 2 Flourish program will feed more than 6,000 kids this summer and he will open a third pantry in Dallas on Thursday that will help underserved families. “This is a really important time because during the school year kids are able to get that food for breakfast and lunch,” Frederick said. “Once that ends, they lose access to that, so that's one of the things we do over the summer.”

Rookie running back Mike Weber will not have surgery at this time on a sore right knee that required an MRI after the Cowboys' rookie minicamp over the weekend. The hope is rest and rehab will help but there is a possibility of needing a scope in the future if things do not improve. Weber left the Saturday morning practice early and watched the final workout that was open to the media in the afternoon.

Tony Romo will not advance to sectional qualifying for the U.S. Open after shooting a 3-over 74 in the local qualifier at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, on Monday. He missed the chance for one of the eight spots available to advance by three strokes.

The Cowboys have lost their second scout to the Oakland Raiders with Walter Juliff leaving to join Mike Mayock's staff, according to sources. The Raiders named Jim Abrams, the Cowboys' West Coast scout, as their director of college scouting after the draft. Juliff spent 31 years with the Cowboys and served as a national scout for the last eight years.

After going through their orientation over the weekend, the Cowboys' rookies will be around the veterans for the first time starting today for teaching sessions, which can be an eye-opening experience. “I think when you really think about their ages and OK, Jason Witten played 15 years so these guys are 21 or 22. So literally they were 5 and 6 years old when he came into the league, right? I think for those guys sometimes that's a little eye-opening,” coach Jason Garrett said. “They walk in the locker room, (it's a) ‘I've been watching this guy play since I was in second grade,' kind of a thing. I do think they get a chance to get acclimated over the course of this weekend and they start to maybe get a little more comfortable and that helps smooth that transition. There's no question it will be different when the veteran guys are here.”

Jon Kitna has been the Cowboys' quarterbacks coach for only a couple of months, but he has been quickly impressed by Dak Prescott. “The hardest thing I think in life is to go from really good or great to elite. It's one of the hardest things,” Kitna said. “They're kind of enemies of each other and fortunately for him and for me as a quarterback coach, he wants to be elite. He wants to be the best and so he comes out every day wondering, asking the whys. Why am I doing this? Why are we doing this drill? What do you want me to do this for? Because he wants to know why it connects and how it's going to help him become an elite player in this league for a long time … I think that's what sets him apart. He already has an elite mindset. He doesn't want to just be good enough or very good or great. He wants to be elite. He wants to be the best. He wants to eliminate anything that maybe he sees as a weakness. He wants to get better at it and so, yeah, definitely his drive is what sets him apart I believe.”

Trysten Hill, the Cowboys' top pick, is two days into a career, but the mini-camp is more of an orientation. The players are not in helmets and there is no offense vs. defense work in the workouts that last less than an hour. Hill has already built a bond with defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, who worked him out at his pro day and kept tabs on him through the draft process. "It's a dream come true," Hill said. "Knowing that he wants the best, he definitely takes care of me. He watches out for me. He makes sure to coach me up the right way, the way I want to be coached. He's unwavering. It's just important to be around him. It motivates me to go out and give my best."

With one rookie minicamp practice down, the Cowboys have signed all but one of their draft picks: defensive tackle Trysten Hill (second round), running back Tony Pollard (fourth), cornerback Mike Jackson (fifth), defensive end Joe Jackson (fifth), safety Donovan Wilson (sixth), running back Mike Weber (seventh) and defensive end Jalen Jelks (seventh). Hill received a signing bonus of $1.567 million. The only pick unsigned is third-round offensive lineman Connor McGovern. The third round deals generally take longer because of the difference in base salaries.
