Vander Esch showing 1st-round talent as rookie for Cowboys

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Leighton Vander Esch said it almost felt weird to have the ball in his hands again on the first NFL interception for the Dallas Cowboys linebacker.

The rookie from Boise State who used to play every down - offense and defense - for his eight-man high school team never said anything about it feeling strange to diagnose a screen pass before it was in the air, slip past a pair of blockers and make a critical open-field tackle for loss.

That defensive play of the game in a season-saving win at Philadelphia was a signature moment weeks in the making, through preparation and focus that Vander Esch said should be expected of any team's first-round draft pick. At least that's how he sees it.
