I'd say most people would agree with this. If you put either Rush or White on the practice squad then they're going to get claimed by another team. You have to keep them both.
Tavon Austin (flex)
Jamize Olawale (FB)
Zeke, Tavon, Rod, and Jamize are all locks to me. It's hard to not see Bo making this team so I'm going to put him in here too.
Yes I know, where's TWill? I'm not sure how it all checks out, but I think this is the year he won't make the roster. And yes I know that we have to pay him almost $6M in guaranteed money either way. If Williams finds his way onto the roster, which he likely could, I just don't see him having that big of an impact. I'd like to see guys like Gallup, Wilson, and Brown get more targets than TWill. This likely won't happen, but hey, these types of bold predictictions are what makes writing fun. Also, pay attention to Lenoir and Thompson who could very easily make this roster. I only have 5 here, but I see us carrying 6 WR's. I will see how everyone looks in camp and preseason until I make my next prediction here.
Carrying 4 TE's is a little crazy but I just can't see us cutting any of these guys as the TE position is up in the air right now. Lets see which one of these guys steps up to fill the shoes of GOAT Witten.
Martin through Looney seem like locks to me. The last spot here pretty much comes down to Marcus Martin and Kadeem Edwards in my opinion. We will see how each looks in camp.
Randy Gregory (If reinstated)
I see Tank, Crawford, Taco, and Kony as locks to make this team. Assuming Gregory is reinstated, he will make the team as well. This is his last chance, but I don't see Jerry parting ways with Randy after all they've been through. Also in play here are Charles Tapper and Dorance Armstrong. Either of them could make strong cases for themselves, but as of right now I have them on the outside looking in.
David Irving (Suspended 4 games)
Lewis Neal (On the 53-man while Irving is suspended)
Collins, Ward, and Jones are definite locks at DT. I think Brian Price will get the nod over Richard Ash and Antwuan Woods, but either of them could make a case for themselves. I also really like what Lewis Neal has brought to the table and I think he will make the roster for the 4 games that Irving misses.
Leighton Vander Esch
Locks here are definitely Lee, Smith, LVE, and Wilson. Thomas is pretty close to a lock for me, as well. The last spot for me comes down to Justin March-Lillard and rookie Chris Covington. Considering I haven't gotten to see much from Covington yet, I'm going to go with JML here. This could very well change after camp.
No debate that Chido, Byron, Lewis, and Brown are locks at CB. The final spot will come down to Duke Thomas and Marquez White. I did give White the edge until his 4th of July incident, so now my edge goes to Thomas. Let's see how White responds on the field after his off the field issues.
Woods, Heath, and Frazier are all locks at safety. I think we will carry 4 safeties this season so that comes down to Kam Kelly and Tyree Robinson for the last spot. Right now, Kelly's athleticism gives him the nod for me.
Nothing to debate here.
Each NFL team can have 10 players on their practice squad. In my prediction, these are the players who would be on the Dallas Cowboys assuming they weren’t claimed by any other teams. Again, this is just a Pre-Camp prediction, comment your thoughts below!
WR Lance Lenoir
WR Deonte Thompson
OL Marcus Martin
DE Charles Tapper
DE Dorance Armstrong
DT Richard Ash
CB Marquez White
DT Antwuan Woods
LB Chris Covington
S Tyree Robinson
