Which players do we rank as the Dallas Cowboys’ top six heading into the 2020 season?
The Dallas Cowboys undoubted have a very talented roster. One that some predict will rule the NFC this upcoming season. With training camp still in the strength and conditioning phase, we thought we’d take this time to look over the current roster in Dallas and attempt to determine which were the top six players for America’s Team.
Admittedly, our ranking is different than the Madden 21 ratings. And they’re possibly different than yours. So know going in that these ranking are subjective and based purely on what we’ve seen covering the team and our view of where each player is in their respective careers. Be sure to leave your own Top Six list in the comment section.
#6. DeMarcus Lawrence, DE
There is an argument to be made that Tank belongs higher on this list. But defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is coming off a down season statically, racking up just 5.0 sacks after posting 25.0 sacks over the previous two years.
Still, Lawrence was his same disruptive self and his play aided fellow defensive end, Robert Quinn, in racking up 11.5 sacks and earning a hefty five-year, $70 million deal with the Chicago Bears as a free agent this offseason.
We fully expect the 28-year old Lawrence to once-again record double-digit sack totals in a new Mike Nolan-led defense this upcoming season.
#5. Tyron Smith, LT
Still, just 29-years old, Tyron Smith has already put together a Hall of Fame career as he’s entering his 10th NFL season. Injuries have started to plague the seven-time Pro Bowler, and that has certainly impacted his play over the past few years. But that hasn’t stopped him from being widely considered one of the best players at his position.
Yet, we still ranked Smith above Lawrence just slightly here due to the fact we believe more NFL teams would want this proven left tackle on their roster over a dominate pass rusher coming off a down season.
