Mandatory minicamp is behind us as the Dallas Cowboys now have their eyes on training camp. They will again hold practices in Oxnard, California as they look to repeat as NFC East champions.

It won't be easy considering the offseason they had. Dallas lost some important free agents including Tyron Smith, Dorance Armstrong, Tony Pollard, and Tyler Biadasz. Dallas is looking to players they've been developing on the bench as well as a few rookies to replace the outgoing talent, but it won't be easy.

Filling out their depth chart will be key as they prepare for the 2024 season and here we dive into their six top priorities, which include more than just shaping the roster.

6. Find out what Trey Lance can do

It's hard to figure out why the Cowboys traded a fourth-round pick for Trey Lance only to have him sit all season. While they never had to replace Dak Prescott as a starter, keeping Lance as the third quarterback meant he wasn't even on the field for garbage time.

Now entering his fourth season in the NFL, and second with Dallas, they still know practically nothing about him. That has to change before the start of the regular season.

Thankfully, the coaching staff seems to be on this very page. Lance is expected to get a lot of reps in training camp and will be the featured quarterback in the preseason. Prescott hardly takes a snap in the exhibition games, so he won't be out there and they already know what Cooper Rush brings to the table.

Now, they have to find out what they have in Trey Lance, especially if they're considering letting Dak hit the open market in 2025 – which would be a massive blunder.
