3 least deserving players to make the Cowboys 53-man roster

• Second-year tight end took a step back

• A rookie who was extremely quiet

• Cowboys should move on from this CB

2. Villami Fehoko, DT

Another player who really didn't make much noise at all during camp — or the preseason — is defensive tackle Villami Fehoko. A fourth-round pick from San Jose State, Fehoko played defensive end during his collegiate days but the Cowboys decided to kick him inside as a 3-tech at the next level.

At 6-foot-4 and 267 pounds, his build seems better suited for the edge but they felt his mix of speed and power could come in useful inside. And in all honesty, it would have been hard for anyone to crack the rotation on the edge which includes Micah Parsons, DeMarcus Lawrence, Dante Fowler, Jr., Dorance Armstrong, and Sam Williams.

But going inside, Fehoko has a couple of other players to contend with including the starting 3-tech, Osa Odighizuwa. There's also Chauncey Golston and Neville Gallimore — who can also play the nose but will be behind Jonathan Hankins and Mazi Smith.

Perhaps the move inside is what kept Fehoko from making much noise during camp. He did create a pressure and nearly recorded a sack against Seattle but outside of that, he barely made a sound.

Dallas was never going to cut him, especially after using a fourth-round pick, but that doesn't mean he was one of the best 53.
