Defensive line – DeMarcus Ware (2010-13), Jay Ratliff (2010-12), Tyrone Crawford (2012-19), DeMarcus Lawrence (2014-19)
Ware played just four seasons of his soon-to-be Hall of Fame career for the Cowboys in the last decade but they were memorable. His 52.5 sacks in just four seasons are the best for anyone in the decade and would be fifth-best in franchise history. He was also a Pro-Bowler from 2010-12 with one All-Pro selection in 2011.
The “other” DeMarcus posted 39 sacks in the decade, good enough for seventh all-time in Dallas Cowboys franchise history. The team is hoping his average of almost one sack every other game continues or improves into the 2020s.
For the interior linemen, the fact that Ratliff and Crawford are pretty obvious choices says a lot. For whatever reason, this team just does not value interior defensive linemen.
Ratliff played just three seasons, albeit two of which earned him Pro-Bowl nods. Crawford has been available for essentially just six of his eight seasons in the league. While all of them have been with Dallas, he’s been moved back and forth from inside to edge.
