Cowboys TE Luke Schoonmaker should play fewer snaps

Schoonmaker has been an easy target for Cowboys fans given how many questions were raised when he was drafted No. 58 overall in April.

With a readymade TE1 in Jake Ferguson chomping at the bit to take the reins from Dalton Schultz, drafting another tight end felt redundant and needless given Dallas invested a fourth-round pick in Ferguson just last year.

The early returns have been less-than-promising for Schoonmaker, who dropped a wide-open pass from Dak Prescott on the Cowboys second possession. He redeemed himself with a big block on CeeDee Lamb's touchdown run later in the first half, but mistakes continue to plague the former Michigan Wolverine.

Last week against the Eagles, Schoonmaker derailed a huge Cowboys drive with a holding penalty on a big run from Rico Dowdle. At this point, he should just be an extra blocker. Throwing to him has more often than not been a waste.
