Dallas Cowboys: Tight End (3)

Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz, Blake Bell

Again, the Dallas Cowboys decide to go on the light side here at the offensive skill positions. Mike McCarthy has been known to keep four tight ends on his roster from time to time but given the evolution of the game and the particular needs of this team, there’s a good chance he stands pat with three.

Jarwin is the obvious leader of the bunch, but I think Dalton Schultz is the surprise No. 2. As explained in “Don’t sleep on Dalton Schultz in 2020”, Dalton Schultz is a much better player than he’s credited for. He’s as good of a blocker as Blake Bell is and he has more upside as a pass-catcher then Bell as well.

Dallas Cowboys: Offensive Line (9)

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

The biggest surprise here is Adam Redmond not making the cut. The Dallas Cowboys are said to adore Redmond for his potential and his interior versatility but there’s a good chance he loses in the numbers game. Cam Erving proves to be his undoing since Erving is more versatile than anyone, capable of playing every spot on the line in reserve capacity.

It’s important to point out, Erving isn’t a good player. But he’s not terrible either and he’s pretty valuable if he can provide universal depth across the line.

Offensive Roster Spots: 23

Roster Spots Remaining: 27
