The Dallas Cowboys are soon to be heading to California for Training Camp and while there certainly could still be some roster churning, anyone they add at this point isn’t really going to change how deep, or thin, a position group is. Some of the groups are still a little bit of an unknown with the number of rookies, but just going by what is on paper we can make some assumptions. How thin or deep a group is will be about experience, depth, and talent.

Let’s look at quarterback as an example of how deep it is. Dak Prescott is a top quarterback in the league, but the group is rather thin after him. However, since they have a potential MVP candidate starting, we will list the group as a little thin, but it is not one of the top three. It would be easy to list the group as thin, but with quarterback, anytime you lose your starter a team usually takes a step back.

Here are the deepest and thinnest position groups on the Dallas Cowboys

Before we get to the thinnest groups first, I am going to leave off special teams as outside of placekicker, punter, and long snapper, the group regularly gets churned anyway. The Cowboys will need to figure out who is going to return kicks and punts, but they have a myriad of options so the group itself is not thin, but rather, unsettled. Let’s get into the three thinnest groups.
