Buy Cowboy tickets

The Dallas Cowboys are feeling knee-deep in preparation for their 2022 debut Sunday night when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After making all of their roster moves last week, including one final edit on Monday, the team knows who’ll be in the action when their NFC East defense kicks off.

On Tuesday, the club released their unofficial depth chart for the week, which includes some interesting things to go on from the off-season, along with some surprising things, including a listing of 12 defensive players. The club will raise several players to the game’s coaching staff, some of whom are expected to be included in the depth chart.

Beginning: Dak Prescott
Series Two: Cooper Rush (PS)

He will raise the Cowboys Rush from the coaching staff to serve as a support for this competition as Prescott begins his seventh season as a start. He’s injury-free but with fewer primary goals.

It’s a two-headed attack, but Dowdle’s health should allow Klein Moore to spell both Elliott and Pollard, who we hope will see plenty of time on the court together this year.

Lamb will play everywhere, X, Z and slot and will be moved to force the defense to declare cover.

Beginning: Michael Gallup

Gallup won’t be ready to go this week, but it’s close. Novice Tolbert struggled with consistency during camp, but it’s time to put on the big boy pants now.

Second: KaVontae Turpin
Third: Dennis Houston

Fans will suspect Brown is ready to step into the spotlight but he had a great camp. Expect Turpin to play a large attacking role outside of his returning duties.

There is nothing behind Schultz but youngsters which raises some alarm given how much TEs will be required to help tackle.

The cowboy had a plan. It was a bad plan, but it was their plan. Now they have a 2023 plan a year in advance. At least they got Josh Paul out of the LT paint.

McGovern gets a second chance to make a first impression. He wasn’t very good at replacing Conor Williams last season, and he spent all of that training camp on the right-hand side while Tyler Smith acclimatized. This is the area of ​​concern for crime.

It was interesting that Dallas gave Biadas the safe treatment, playing with him the first 15 shots of the first game and not again. They seem to be much more confident than their fan base.

Martin is the best in the world at what he does. Hopefully Dallas doesn’t underestimate his perceived value by what they have around him in the second half of his career.

Beginning: Terence Steele
Two: Josh Paul

Steele is now well-established as a starting player for the first time in his career and the ball should be better on the right side (which Stephen Jones said belongs in the spring) than he has on the left.

Lawrence was injured after the first week but in every game he played in 2021 he seemed to be part of a top-tier DE.

Beginning: Quinton Bohana
2nd: Neville Gilmore
Third: John Ridgway

It’s interesting to see Pohana, who had a great bootcamp, get the nod here, but Gallimore is the second of a triple and will be more often because passing is the primary approach now.

Odighizuwa getting a nod on the starting line unlike Gallimore is no small feat, folks.

3rd: Chauncey Goulston

Armstrong sat out all pre-season, so the Cowboys firmly believe he can be the lead man to replace Gregory. Fowler has to take control or he will get the decisions of the DNP coaches.

3rd: Devin Harper

Barr is Parsons’ insurance, but he will play Vander Esch. Cox may take a while to return to his full potential after rupturing his ACL last year.

Joseph has a lot of work to do to make up for Brown now, which is amazing considering many thought he had a chance of splitting the picks to enter the final pre-season game of 2021.

The Slot Corner is one of the toughest jobs in the league, and now Lewis is only being underestimated, and Bland looks like a Diamond in the open.

Can Diggs lead the league in INTs in back-to-back seasons like Everson Walls did? Don’t bet against it, it’s a magnet.

Mukuamu is a Kearse clone, but all eyes will be watching to see if Kearse has been a one-year-old wonderland or if Dallas really discovered a gem.

Wilson is able to do everything in safety as long as he is healthy. But that was the hardest part.

Nobody talks about Hooker except for Jerry Jones. The dark horse will appear as the start of this season.
