This is going to be an interesting season for the Dallas Cowboys. After claiming they were "all-in" throughout the offseason, team owner Jerry Jones and his son, Stephen Jones, went out of their way to do nothing.

Now they get ready to head to training camp on the heels of three consecutive 12-win campaigns with a depleted roster. They also have a coach and quarterback in the final year of their deals, so there's a chance a major rebuild could be on the way.

For now, they might not be willing to trade everyone but here's a look at six players they could shop for future draft picks.

6. Israel Mukuamu, S

Selected at No. 227 overall out of South Carolina, Israel Mukuamu moved from cornerback to safety once he joined the Cowboys. His 6-foot-4, 205-pound frame made him an ideal fit in Dan Quinn's system and his coverage ability allowed him to move from safety to slot cornerback when needed.

Mukuamu's most productive campaign was in 2022 when he played in 15 games with three starts. That year, he had 17 tackles and an interception. However, he was hardly utilized in 2023 due to the sudden depth of the position.

Even with Jayron Kearse gone this year, Mukuamu is still buried behind Donovan Wilson, Malik Hooker, Markquese Bell, and Juanyeh Thomas. They also like what they have in undrafted free agents Julius Wood and Emany Johnson.

That depth is why the Cowboys would be willing to listen to offers for Mukuamu, who is in the final year of his deal. He wouldn't bring much via trade but getting a late-round pick for someone who was initially a sixth-round selection isn't a loss.
