Oxnard, Calif. — Cole Beasley is 5-foot-8.
He's short and he grew up a short distance from Valley Ranch.
He played high school ball just 43 miles away from the home of the Cowboys and he played college ball right next door to Irving at SMU.
Beasley was the leading receiver for the Mustangs his senior season and the Cowboys liked what they saw.
He was the only free agent rookie to make the team two years ago and last year he caught 39 passes.
He's playing and he's looking to play a bigger role.
"It's never exciting sitting on the bench and watching," Beasley told KETK. "It's always exciting to play."
"I've wanted to play in the NFL for a long time and I feel like I could be successful," Beasley added. "A lot of people didn't and that motivates me more than anything."
