3. Nahshon Wright, CB

Wright could stick given he's entering his third year with Dan Quinn, but the former third-round selection took a step back in 2022. There's never a good time for regression, but Wright picked a bad time to flounder following the season-ending injuries to Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis.

It helps that Kelvin Joseph also struggled, but the Cowboys experimented with Joseph on special teams and he was seen rotating with the safeties and later the nickel position during OTAs and minicamp.

All while Wright was sidelined with an apparent injury.

Ultimately, Wright was leapfrogged in 2022 by rookie DaRon Bland. With Jourdan Lewis slated to begin camp on the PUP list, Wright (if healthy) will get his fair share of reps. Following the additions of Stephon Gilmore and rookie draft choice Eric Scott Jr., who's already seen first-team reps, Wright's margin for error is paper thin.
