(Wichita Falls-AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys will have the steal of the draft if rookie cornerback Mario Edwards can cover as well as he entertains. The sixth-round pick from Florida State is continuing the loud-talking, showboating ways of another former Seminoles cornerback, Deion Sanders.

Edwards is showing his stuff at training camp in Wichita Falls. He's dared quarterback Troy Aikman to throw his way and begged to cover Joey Galloway and Raghib Ismail.

Shoelaces dangle from Edwards' waist of his shorts to his knees, symbolizing the lassos he hopes to throw around receivers. Everything Edwards does is in the name of fun. He insists he's not trying to offend anyone, just pump himself up and keep things lighthearted.

The Cowboys are going through major changes in the secondary, starting with the loss of Sanders.
