The Dallas Cowboys have been a playoff team for the last two seasons.

Expectations are still high in Dallas after they wasted no time upgrading their roster to try and overcome a long and painful drought. This offseason consisted of acquiring veterans and filling the roster with young players in different areas of need at different positions.

While the front office could add some veterans as we get closer to training camp, the Cowboys' depth chart for 2023 is mostly set in stone. Top to bottom, this is one of the most talented rosters in the league, so let's rank each position group from worst to first.

Ranking every Cowboys position group from worst to first

10. Specialists 

Last year's kicker Brett Maher is now a free agent after he ended his season with a shocking and forgettable performance in the playoffs following a solid regular season campaign. 

Long snappers Jake McQuaide and Matt Overton are no longer on the roster. This means the Cowboys have some new faces in kicker Tristan Vizcaino and long snapper Trent Sieg. Both hope to fend off any competition at camp. 

The silver lining is the Cowboys possess one of the best punters in the league today in All-Pro Bryan Anger. 

9. Tight End 

There is no question the leader of this room is a spot now up for grabs. The Cowboys watched as their starter each of the last two seasons, Dalton Schultz, signed a modest one-year deal in Houston. 

This means a new face as the new starter will take over. Jake Ferguson, Luke Schoonmaker, and Peyton Hendershot are the notable names. 

Ferguson and Hendershot saw significant action last season, while the Cowboys are high on Schoonmaker, the Michigan product taken in the second round of the 2023 draft. 

The rest of the unit consists of Sean Mckeon, the veteran of the group, Seth Green, and rookie Princeton Fant. Nevertheless, the team will have much sorting to do before the regular season to field the best unit possible.
