Predicting the Dallas Cowboys starting lineup in 2018
With the NFL offseason coming to its near end, it is never too early to take a look at what the Dallas Cowboys starting lineup may look like come Week One.
As the Dallas Cowboys wrap up their offseason, there are a lot of new faces that will be wearing the star on their helmet this upcoming year.
With some key longtime veterans no longer with the team, and some young additions from the draft and free agency looking to slide into starting roles, the Cowboys team we see on the field in 2018 will look much different than the one we saw a few months ago in Philadelphia.
Although the Cowboys first preseason game is still a few months away, here is an early prediction at what lineup Dallas may roll out when they travel to Carolina to take on the Panthers in Week 1.
Quarterback- Dak Prescott 6’2 226 lbs 24 years old
This one is a no-brainer. Baring injury, Dak Prescott will be the Cowboys signal caller when they go to Carolina to start the 2018 season.
Dak will be the leader of their new look offense, and will have lofty expectations coming into year three.
Running back- Ezekiel Elliott 6’0 225 lbs 22 years old
Again, a pretty easy one her. Zeke will be back in the fold and the Cowboys will rely on him heavily to carry this offense.
If you think Dallas leaned on Elliott in 2016, I expect them to use him much more this coming season.
Fullback- Jamize Olawale 6’1 238 lbs 29 years old
After acquiring Olawale early in the offseason, he looks to be the fullback for the Cowboys in 2018. Olawale is not much of a pass catcher, so if Dallas looks to use Rod Smith‘s versatility in a fullback role, it could make Olawale expendable.
