Dallas Cowboys Offense

Quarterback (2)

Dak Prescott, Andy Dalton

The Dallas Cowboys upgraded their red-headed back-up QB when they signed Andy Dalton to replace Cooper Rush. The DFW product should easily take the QB2 spot from challengers and provide a safety net should something prevent Dak Prescott from playing.

Rookie Ben DiNucci cannot be ignored here. Mike McCarthy picked the obscure signal caller out himself and will want to groom him long-term. As long as he doesn’t show too much in preseason, the Dallas Cowboys should be able to stash him on the practice squad.

Offensive Line (9)

Tyron Smith, La’el Collins, Zack Martin, Connor Williams, Connor McGovern, Joe Looney, Tyler Biadasz, Brandon Knight, Adam Redmond

This shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. The core four of the offensive line are Smith, Collins, Martin, and Williams. McGovern will likely split time competing at guard and center. He has starting experience at both in the college ranks and his draft pedigree indicates he’s more than capable.

G/C Joe Looney was re-signed using the brand new Veterans Salary Benefit exception. It keeps him in Dallas this season and keeps his numbers off the books.  He’s basically a sure thing to make this team as interior depth, at the very least. C Tyler Biadasz is a sure to make the team as well. The Dallas Cowboys traded up in the draft to get him and will likely look to groom him for the long-haul.

OT Brandon Knight is someone the team seems to love. He made Cameron Fleming expendable this offseason and he’s the shoe-in to serve as swing tackle going forward. And the last guy on the depth chart is G/C Adam Redmond, someone the front office locked up and someone who offers a little interior versatility.
