In just weeks, the Dallas Cowboys will begin their training camp.

The NFL draft, mandatory mini-camps, OTAs, and rookie camps are now complete. It’s less than a month before the actual work for the Dallas Cowboys begins.

I won’t be making any more predictions until we have a better understanding of the Dallas Cowboys’ 53-player roster. My first 53-player roster prediction is available by clicking on this link.

I’ve written previews for the offense and defense training camps position battles, feel free to check them out, too. You can disagree with me on twitter.

Just remember, this is purely speculative at this point. “Another early try at the 2023 Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster prediction” is the title because of this reason.

Dallas Cowboys Quarterbacks (3)

Dak Prescott, Cooper Rush, Will Grier

Dak Prescott holds the position of starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

Will Grier is a viable backup option for Dallas, but Cooper Rush has earned the number two QB spot.

Dallas Cowboys Running backs (3) and fullback (1)

Tony Pollard, Brandon Jones, Deuce Vaughn (R), Hunter Luepke (UDFA)

The team’s lead running back position is currently taken by none other than Tony Pollard. He is the explosive element of the Cowboy’s offense.

The reason Brandon Jones is going to be chosen over Davis is because of his extensive experience and capability of handling a significant amount of workload.

Deuce Vaughn is going to fill the scatback position on the team. Vaughn can catch swing passes, angle routes, and wheel routes as a receiver out of the backfield. Vaughn’s all-purpose back abilities include catching the ball out of the backfield.

Hunter Luepke will play a significant role in the offense. What makes me believe this? In the west coast offense, the key position is the fullback.

The position is something that Mike McCarthy has professed his love for. Similar to former Greenbay Packers FB John Kuhn, I think McCarthy will make Luepke a utility nightmare for defenses.

Over six seasons, John Kuhn was a dangerous utility player for the Packers, tallying up 573 rushing yards, 13 rushing touchdowns, 482 receiving yards, and four touchdown receptions.
