1. Simi Fehoko, wide receiver

Anytime you can find guys in the late rounds of the NFL Draft who post elite athletic metrics, you have to think you can at least count on them to produce on special teams. Unfortunately, over two seasons, former 5th-round pick Simi Fehoko hasn't been able to carve out any sort of role, so this sort of becomes a make-or-break year for him.

With just 134 snaps in 10 games over two seasons, Fehoko's tremendous size and speed profile hasn't been on the field much at all. But the athleticism remains intriguing and the opportunity is still there for something to materialize.

There's only so long you can really rely on a guy's potential, but there will be a battle in training camp between Fehoko and second-year receiver Jalen Tolbert for a pretty regular spot in the Cowboys' wide receiver rotation.

One particular advantage Fehoko might have that could really lead to a huge training camp and preseason is the switch over from Kellen Moore's offense to Mike McCarthy's offense. While Kellen Moore is much more about the vertical passing attack and Air Coryell concepts, McCarthy runs a version of the West Coast offense that will much more closely resemble what Fehoko played under David Shaw at Stanford.


A change in the offensive playbook could lead to more snaps and finally some solid production from Fehoko in the Cowboys' passing attack this season.
