4. George Selvie
Whenever you sign someone off the street to come to training camp because you have two starters and a rotation player all dealing with major injuries, the expectations are low. You’re really just hoping to land someone who can be a situational type player and provide rest for your starters. Boy did Selvie exceed those aspirations. All Selvie did was become the only Cowboys defensive lineman to start all sixteen games. He didn’t just provide a warm body either.
Seven sacks, seven tackles for loss, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and countless quarterback pressures, Selvie was arguably the best player on the defensive line behind Jason Hatcher. I know it seems hard to imagine the defense being any worse but without Selvie, opposing teams may have never punted. He also gives the Cowboys desperately needed youth and a solid option for 2014 when an entire defensive makeover is in need. Dallas will need at least two new linemen but they can count on George Selvie to man one end.
