Running Back (4):
This is the position that will look the most different in 2023 for Dallas. Yes, they made additions to other spots but it's the absence of a former superstar that stands out here.
For the first time since 2016, Ezekiel Elliott isn't the No. 1 running back in Big D as Tony Pollard is set to take over. Pollard is playing on the franchise tag and coming off his best campaign. While still splitting time with Zeke, he had 1,378 yards from scrimmage with 12 total touchdowns.
Malik Davis is the only returning member of the team from 2022 as the undrafted free agent out of Florida showed enough during his rookie campaign to stick around this year.
He's joined by Deuce Vaughn, a rookie from Kansas State. Vaughn is undersized at 5-foot-5 and 179 pounds but he's lightning in a bottle and can be a dynamic change of pace back.
Last is Hunter Luepke an undrafted free agent from North Dakota State. Luepke isn't a typical fullback at 6-foot-1 and 236 pounds and he was someone Dallas was stoked to add after the draft. He's a capable receiver out of the backfield but will really make his mark as a short-yardage guy early in his career.
They do wind up releasing Ronald Jones in this scenario, which is a testament to their faith in Davis as the primary bell cow if Pollard suffers an injury. That belief is why they have two backs who are typically specialists.
