The long and boring portion of the NFL offseason is among us as we wait for teams to report for training camp. For the Dallas Cowboys, they head to Oxnard, CA on July 26 to get things started.
Once there, the Cowboys will begin to work toward getting back on top of the NFC East. While that's the team goal, there will be some individual goals as well. For these three players, that could be as simple as trying to improve their falling stock.
3. Kelvin Joseph, CB
The Cowboys front office deserves credit for the way they've drafted over the past several years. Sure, they have had the occasional miss — see Taco Charlton and Trysten Hill — but they've also hit some home runs — see CeeDee Lamb, Dak Prescott, and Trevon Diggs.
While that's true, the misses seem to really sting especially when it's a player they were expecting to fill a major role.
That's the case with Kelvin Joseph, who Dallas wanted to pair with Diggs. The Kentucky product was taken in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft and after two seasons, he's been a disappointment.
Joseph earned a 49.2 grade from PFF in his second season which is very alarming. Dallas was fortunate enough to land Stephon Gilmore in a trade with the Colts but he's a short-term fix given his age.
This season is likely the last opportunity for Joseph to prove he belongs and with his stock at an all-time low, there aren;t likely many people buying right now.
