3. The talent at defensive tackle shines through
Every season we see the Cowboys pass rush and pass coverage shine during the season, but the run defense continue to lag behind in terms of production.
After the addition of Mazi Smith and the young talent they've acquired along the defensive line to go with the veterans this unit could be ready to catch up to that pass rush and pass coverage. They've got size, speed and power to combat what offenses are going to throw at them this season.
If this unit can come together quickly and become stout enough to hinder rushing attacks, it not only benefits the defense but the overall outlook of the team this season.
Finding the right rotations will be key for this unit to succeed and with defensive coordinator Dan Quinn leading them they have a chance to do something we haven't seen this unit do in a long time: stop the run.
Now, onto the worst possible outcomes at Cowboys camp.
