Simi Fehoko, WR

Wide receiver is one of the deepest positions on this Cowboys roster, led by 2-time Pro Bowler CeeDee Lamb. Starting along with Lamb are Michael Gallup and the. newly-acquired Brandin Cooks. Between the three of them, Dak Prescott will have a phenomenal trio of targets at wideout.

Behind those three are a couple of intriguing names. Last year's third-round pick, Jalen Tolbert, is improving this offseason and looks to bounce back from a disappointing rookie campaign. The Cowboys also have return specialist KaVontae Turpin, and he's not going anywhere.

Simi Fehoko will then likely make it as the team's sixth wide receiver. The big-bodied 2021 fifth-round pick gives the Cowboys a nice reserve who can be a gigantic target on the outside.

Dante Fowler Jr., EDGE

With Micah Parsons officially switching to the edge position, it makes things a little muddier for the other guys at that spot. Behind Parsons is Dorance Armstrong, who finished last year with 8.5 sacks and he's not going anywhere.

From there, Dante Fowler is the third man up. But, he's not going anywhere either. Even though the Cowboys have DeMarcus Lawrence on the other side, at defensive end, Fowler's spot on this roster should be safe. He came up with 6.0 sacks last year, and that type of production is not easy to throw away, especially for a rotational rusher.
