Today we look at who’s trending where for the Dallas Cowboys as they finally set sights on their 3:25pm opening matinée vs. NYG.
The Dallas Cowboys have been back for awhile now, but things are really seeming to heat up now.
After wrapping up their preseason with a 17-15 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and “finalizing” its 53-man depth chart, now’s the time for Jason Garrett and company to finally shift their attention towards the regular season.
Eli Manning, Saquon Barkley, and the New York Giants are now at the forefront of film study. Everything done from this point on will be solely centered around menacing the G-Men next Sunday Afternoon. Anticipation for the incoming NFL season is as high as expectations around the Dallas Cowboys, and excitement seems ready to boil over.
How does each positional group look heading into the new year? In this article, we will break down just whom is hot, whom is not, and more importantly, which depth charts we need to pay closer attention to.
Without further ado, let’s dive on in…
Stock Up: The Defensive Line
(10). DeMarcus Lawrence, Dorance Armstrong, Joe Jackson, Antwuan Woods, Trysten Hill, Maliek Collins, Christian Covington, Tyrone Crawford, Kerry Hyder, Taco Charlton
What a monster of a unit. It speaks volumes about the Cowboys and their depth along the defensive line to not have preseason standouts Daniel Wise and Jaylen Jelks to make the roster. Headlined by DeMarcus Lawrence, the Hotboyz look to stake their claim as the NFL’s best unit.
From top-to-bottom, every lineman looks capable of performing at a high level in 2020.
The truly absurd thing is the defensive line only looks to get stronger. Pass specialist Robert Quinn is getting healthy and will look to make his Cowboys début come Week 3 after serving an initial 2-game suspension to begin the year. The line also boasts a true wild card in speedster Randy Gregory, who seems eager to play this year.
Rod Marinelli and the Dallas Cowboys ‘rushmen’ look to terrorize the league in 2019. Eli Manning figures to be their first victim.
