NICE EFFORT, POSITIONS ARE FULL
EMMETT CLEARY (RT)
Both of those considerations are pushing Chaz Green to settle into the back-up swing role at all four guard and tackle positions.
Position flex is a huge factor in deciding the roster in Dallas. Since Both Green and Byron Bell have starting NFL tackle experience, Cleary is a luxury they can’t afford.
Conclusion: Dallas goes short with eight offensive linemen. Cleary is ninth in line.
MARQUEZ WHITE (CB)
Early in camp White showed more promise in his game than most expected.
Unfortunately a sixth round rookie can’t afford to miss extended injury time at a loaded position. Thomas seized the opportunity and already claimed his bid.
The two corners are only a year apart. It shouldn’t matter who was drafted or not, the most consistent, best player deserves to keep playing.
Both are trying to crack a position with five corners already sewn into the roster.
Conclusion: Dallas will go long at corner making Thomas the sixth. Limited action should get White past waivers. Stash him away to sneak on the practice squad.
ROBERT BLANTON (S)
The former NFL starter and veteran safety is too ordinary to warrant squeezing out a promising, younger option at the position.
He’s an inferior player to the two young safeties in key aspects of the position. Xavier Woods is a better defender (especially in coverage) and will be the third safety.
Kavon Frazier is more imposing against the run and also plays special teams. The first year player should land the fourth safety spot.
Conclusion: Dallas has no need to hold onto a fifth safety when Chidobe Awuzie could switch from corner if needed. Blanton has skills left, they’re just too ordinary.
