Tight End (4): Jake Ferguson, Luke Schoonmaker, John Stephen, Jr., Brevyn Spann-Ford

Jake Ferguson took off in 2023, making it even more frustrating that Dallas reached for Luke Schoonmaker in the second round. As Ferguson developed into a star, Schoonmaker struggled through a lackluster rookie campaign. Despite this, his draft status keeps him around as the TE2 for now.

John Stephens, Jr. was a star during training camp before suffering a knee injury. The converted wide receiver offers a versatile passing threat off the bench and pushes out Peyton Hendershot, who is talented but struggling with durability. Undrafted free agent Brevyn Spann-Ford is the fourth option and he might be able to develop into a solid No. 2 down the road.

Offensive Line (10): Tyler Guyton, Tyler Smith, Cooper Beebe, Zack Martin, Terence Steele, Chuma Edoga, T.J. Bass, Brock Hoffman, Asim Richards, Nathan Thomas

Dallas deserves a lot of criticism for their work this offseason but they also deserve praise for how they addressed the offensive line. In need of two starters, they successfully flipped the 24th pick to Detroit for the 29th and 73rd. They then added Tyler Guyton and Cooper Beebe, who are expected to start.

Thankfully each player has a stud to work alongside with Guyton lining up next to Tyler Smith while Beebe is sandwiched between Smith and Zack Martin. There will be questions about the rookies and Terence Steele, who struggled mightily in 2023.

Their bench is decent too with T.J. Bass, who has the makings of a starter at guard. Chuma Edoga can play guard or tackle as can Asim Richards. Brock Hoffman is the backup center but performed well when asked to start in the past. Nathan Thomas also finds his way to the roster as a developmental swing tackle.
