Adding Stephon Gilmore was a huge win for Dallas this offseason. He comes in as one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL and will line up across from Trevon Diggs who can say the same. DaRon Bland should remain as the slot cornerback after picking off five passes last season.
Of course, he will still have to compete with Jourdan Lewis, who is no slouch either.
They round things out with Kelvin Joseph, who beats out Nahshon Wright. It's hard to say Joseph has been better thus far but he's been decent in OTAs and was a higher draft pick. He's also worked some at safety and in the end, that's enough for him to make the cut.
At safety, the Cowboys are able to return all five players from a season ago — which didn't feel likely. Donovan Wilson appeared to play his way out of town but still agreed to a three-year deal to stick around. That was a huge win for Dallas as they stay very deep at the position.
Even behind Wilson, Jayron Kearse, and Wilson they have two capable players in Israel Mukuamau and Markuese Bell. Mukuamu even stepped up and played in the slot last year as he helped them navigate injuries at cornerback.
