With the majority of free agent signings in the books and the NFL Draft complete, it’s time to predict the 2020 Dallas Cowboys 55-man roster.

The calendar has moved on from April to May, one step closer to (hopefully) the 2020 NFL regular season. With the official schedule set to be released on Thursday, it’s beginning to feel more and more like football is coming around the corner.

After the moves that the Dallas Cowboys have made this offseason, the hype is starting to reach epic levels. Given that amount of excitement, what better time than to take a stab at just who will be on the Cowboys’ roster, if and when, the season actually does kickoff.

Under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the roster size has expanded two spots to 55 in total. With a roster starting to appear quite deep, that expansion only could work in the Cowboys’ favor. Here is one man’s way too early, but best guess at what that final 55-man squad will feature

Quarterbacks (2)

Dak Prescott, Andy Dalton

The starting/backup quarterback duo has not been this strong since Tony Romo was the backup to Dak for the final seven games of his career. One could easily argue that the Dallas Cowboys have both a top-five starting quarterback AND the best backup quarterback in the entire NFL.

Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard, Jamize Olawale

We all know how great Elliott is but what we want to see if what Pollard can bring to the table. He looked good in the preseason last year, only to get barely 100 touches all season when it mattered. The new coaching staff needs to find ways to use both at the same time.
