1. Kelvin Joseph

Joseph has had his ups and downs in camp and while many recognize his talent and athleticism, he hasn't been able to have that translate to the field. The biggest obstacle in Joseph's path is rookie Eric Scott Jr., who has been a standout so far in camp holding his own against rookies and veterans alike.

Joseph has an advantage over Scott with his special teams experience, but even that may not save the 2021 second-round pick thanks to his knack for penalties in that role.

Joseph is going to need to have everything click for him quickly in order for the Cowboys to even think about keeping him on this roster because all they've seen is a player that is a liability on the field at cornerback, a penalty machine on special teams, and a player that they have to worry about off the field.
