With the initial 53-man roster set, the Cowboys are lacking depth at both tackle positions. Tyron Smith, Terence Steele and Matt Waletzko are the only rostered tackles at the moment, making it clear that it'd be in the team's best interest to add depth.

With that being said, I wouldn't be opposed to Dallas taking a flyer on former 2019 third-rounder Bobby Evans following his release.

The 26-year-old offensive lineman had a solid preseason, allowing just 1 sack without a penalty on 39 offensive snaps. His efforts were good enough to earn a 70.4 Pro Football Focus grade, which is much better than the 29.8 mark he finished with at the end of the 2022 regular season.

Even though fans have the right to be concerned about last year's performance, Evans is still young enough to bounce back. He'd also be more effective in a backup role as opposed to a starter, which should help him find his game again.

On top of his experience playing both tackle and guard in the NFL, Evans can fill in as an occasional starter after starting in 12 of his 35 career games.

Evans won't win the Cowboys a Super Bowl on his own, but he could be a solid depth piece on a championship run.
