The Dallas Cowboys have been in the news a lot due to the lack of contracts beyond 2024 for Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb, and Mike McCarthy. The quarterback and head coach have been hard at work despite the uncertain future whereas Lamb has been holding out and is subject to fines.

While these stories have hogged the attention, there's been much more going on at camp. Here we take the time to discuss three players who have seen their stock take a nose dive during these offseason programs.

3. Luke Schoonmaker, Tight End

Luke Schoonmaker was easily the least popular pick by Dallas in the 2023 NFL Draft. This front office has done wonders when drafting for talent but when they zero in on a position as the motivator, they get in trouble (see Charlton, Taco).

That was the case in this draft as they took Mazi Smith out of Michigan in Round 1, which felt like a reach as they targeted a need at defensive tackle. Their need at tight end was just as great, which is how everyone who follows the team knew where they would go in Round 2.

With several of the top options off the board, Dallas brought in Schoonmaker, another Michigan product. Unlike Smith, however, this one didn't seem to have much upside. Schoonmaker had 165 yards receiving in 2021 and 418 in 2022. Those numbers were far from impressive and to make matters worse, he turned 25 during his rookie season.

Older draft picks hardly develop any further in the NFL and Schoonmaker didn't do anything as a rookie to prove he can change that perception. He had just seven receptions after missing much of the offseason programs due to injury.

Schoonmaker is off to a similar start in year two, missing OTAs with a hamstring injury. The Cowboys might want to keep giving him chances due to his draft status but it's hard to say Brevyn Spann-Ford, Peyton Hendershot, and John Stephens, Jr. aren't superior options behind Jake Ferguson right now.
