The Dallas Cowboys will begin training camp in July as they prepare to trim their roster down to 53 players for the 2023 campaign. It won't be easy to figure out who makes the team, which is a testament to the work the front office has done in creating competition.

While it's true many of the starting spots are locked up, there will be some serious competition for reserve positions. Here, we look at five players who could do enough to become contributors in 2023 — but could also just as easily be cut during the summer.

5 Cowboys potential cut candidates this summer

5. Simi Fehoko, WR

When the Cowboys added Simi Fehoko in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, it was safe to say he was seen as an intriguing pick. He stood 6-foo-4 and 220 pounds but was more than just a big target, he also showed off some wheels.

At his Stanford Pro Day, Fehoko turned in an unofficial 4.37 in the 40-yard dash which definitely turned heads.

Of course, there's more that goes into the position than pure speed and Fehoko was still considered very raw. At Stanford, he never developed into a consistent threat and had 62 receptions for 1,146 yards and nine touchdowns in his career.

Since joining Dallas, it's been tough for him to crack the lineup due to the talent around him. He did have a shot last season with Amari Cooper being traded away and Michael Gallup hurt but it was Noah Brown who took advantage.

Now heading into 2023, Fehoko has just three receptions for 24 yards to his name. He again has a shot to prove himself with Brown joining the Houston Texans in the offseason but if he can't crack the top four, it might be the end of the line for the promising wideout.
