3. Eric Scott, 4. Villiami Fehoko
The Cowboys' offense has the defense to mostly thank for the team's first four wins of the year. Dan Quinn's unit has remained one of the league's best once again in 2023, ranking No. 5 in fewest total yards allowed and sitting No. 3 in defensive DVOA.
While injuries have hurt this group early on, the remaining healthy players and the backups who've been promoted have stepped up. As a result, that's simply squeezed out rookies Eric Scott and Villiami Fehoko.
Scott was drafted in the sixth round to help provide some extra depth in Dallas' secondary. While that could still be in the cards, right now he's clearly got some work to do. The Southern Miss. product still hasn't made his NFL debut yet, failing to crack the lineup despite a rash of injuries to the CB room.
Meanwhile, Fehoko has the unfortunate pleasure of fighting for playing time on the Cowboys' loaded defensive line. He clearly has potential after winning Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year last season at San Jose St., but with veteran EDGE talent like DeMarcus Lawrence, Dorance Armstrong and Dante Fowler in front of him, he just has to focus on his development right now.
