Cowboys could trade Quinton Bohanna

Don't look now, but the Cowboys suddenly have three capable interior defensive linemen after they drafted Mazi Smith in the first round.

With Smith and Johnathan Hankins specializing against the run and Osa Odighizuwa establishing himself as one of the best young pass-rushing DTs in the game, Dallas' trench warfare is nothing to be trifled with.

While Smith isn't expected to start from jump street, he figures to get a ton of playing time. Either way, his arrival will have a domino effect on the rest of the rotation. Neville Gallimore largely has been pegged on the odd man out, but it might actually be Quinton Bohanna given he was drafted to bolster the run defense.

Gallimore, meanwhile, profiles as more of a downhill pass rusher. Bohanna admittedly was more effective than Gallimore last season, but that's not saying much. In fact, Bohanna logged a lousy 42.4 run-defense grade and totaled just nine defensive stops, per PFF.

The Cowboys used a sixth-round pick on Bohanna in 2021. Maybe they can get a seventh-rounder in return from a DT-needy team. The cap savings would be minimal, but a trade would allow Dallas the means to add a veteran to the rotation.
