Dallas Cowboys lines

Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line (9) Tyron Smith, Tyler Smith, Tyler Biadasz, Zack Martin, Terence Steele, Matt Waletzko, Josh Ball, Connor McGovern, Matt Farniok

Last week I would have left Matt Farniok off completely but lately I think his stock may have pushed him to the other side of the bubble. Right now I have nine making the cut of 53 with a possibility a veteran is acquired to play swing tackle at some point.

Connor McGovern can play all three IOL spots but the Cowboys really need a true backup center. Empey looked strong so he could be that guy – we just need to see more before he give him a roster spot.

Josh Ball was bad but the Dallas Cowboys don’t have many options. I still think he stays on the team and blame poor conditioning for his decline in Denver (I want to believe that).

Dallas Cowboys Defensive Line (9) DeMarcus Lawrence,  Osa Odighizuwa, Neville Gallimore, Dorance Armstrong, Sam Williams, Quinton Bohanna, John Ridgeway, Chauncey Golston, Tarell Basham

To facilitate the extra players needed elsewhere, the DL goes one player shy. Noticeable cuts are Dante Fowler and Trysten Hill. Hill has flashed in camp this season so this move may seem surprising but with Bohanna, Ridgeway, and Golston (all primary DTs) already making it, I see him just missing the cut.

Basham had a strong performance with Denver so he stays on over Fowler. Fowler has very little guaranteed so he’s been on the block. It may be redundant to keep both Bohanna AND Ridgeway but if Dan Quinn really wants to toughen up the team personality, this is the move.

Parsons is actually a part-time DE so the depth at EDGE is strong
