The Dallas Cowboys defensive line is taking a hit this offseason. Many people are expecting Dallas to address the defensive line during the draft, but what do they have on their roster right now?
Let’s just say the Cowboys are unable to find the right lineman around their picks. The soon departure of defensive end Robert Quinn leaves a starting spot along the line open (likely for Tyrone Crawford).
That is a possibility that may have factored into his lowly snap count. It may also have to do with Quinn returning from suspension in Week 3 and eating up snaps.
Regardless, it can’t be a bad thing to give him some snaps and see what he does. The Cowboys need to keep in mind his young age and mold him into a long term solution. Part of that could be Hill watching from the sidelines.
I don’t expect that to happen though, especially after the low snap count last season. This season should be one that gives him more opportunities so he can learn as he plays.
