With OTA’s and training camp around the corner, here’s an early look at the Cowboys depth chart after the draft.
The 2021 NFL Draft has finally come and gone, and to the surprise of many, the Dallas Cowboys weren’t in the mood to make deals outside of the one they made in the first round with the Philadelphia Eagles. They were able to pick up an extra third-round pick and still get their “target” in Micah Parsons with the 12th pick. After that deal, the Cowboys decided that more bodies in camp for them meant more chances for them to get talented players on this roster, In the end, the Cowboys ended up drafting a whopping 11 players, eight on defense and three on offense.
These players will need to come in and compete for a roster spot so let’s take a look at where they all fit currently on the roster, who’s been pushed down on the depth chart, and who’s risen up before we get to training camp. We’re just slotting people, but given the variables of different formations and who would replace who in the case of injury, those are situations that are not addressed here.
Note: This listing does not include prospective UDFA players as the exact status of their signings is not formally know at this point.
