With mandatory minicamp coming to a close, the Dallas Cowboys will focus on the next part of their offseason — training camp. This won't begin until late July but the coaching staff, and even some of the players, are already turning their attention to their time in Oxnard.

Dallas is coming off their third consecutive 12-win campaign, but they once again fell flat in the playoffs. They know the pressure is at an all-time high, especially with key players such as Dak Prescott and Zack Martin coming into the season with cloudy futures.

Most of the attention will go to them — and CeeDee Lamb who is holding out for a new contract — there will be plenty of intrigue throughout the roster. Here, we look at six players who are on the bubble and need to show out in camp to keep their spot on the team.

6. Viliami Fehoko, Jr., DL

Dallas selected Viliami Fehoko, Jr. in the fourth round last year. The San Jose State product measured in at 6-foot-4 and 276 pounds which might end up hurting his chances of success. His size led to a belief that he could play both the defensive end position, and slide inside as a 3-tech on passing downs.

The Cowboys have done this with Tyrone Crawford and Chauncey Golston with mixed success. Their thought process is fine and versatility is great but players need to be afforded the chance to learn one position before moving around.

For Fehoko, he would be best served to stick in one spot. Right now, defensive tackle would give him a better chance at making the roster but he's still listed as a defensive end. If he stays there, he will be behind Micah Parsons, DeMarcus Lawrence, Sam Williams, and rookie Marshawn Kneeland. He might not be in danger of being released just yet, but he could wind up buried on the depth chart.
