2015 Depth Charts: Dallas Cowboys
• After struggling in his first season at left tackle, Tyron Smith has delivered two very strong seasons on the left side of the Dallas line, vaulting into the top tier of offensive tackles in the league.
• If the Cowboys aren’t able to bring back running back DeMarco Murray, it leaves three players at the position who we simply haven’t seen enough to judge. Regardless, until proven otherwise, it’s tough to have faith that any of the three could carry the load like Murray did.
• Sean Lee is one of the best linebackers in the league when he plays. The problem is that he has missed so much time through injury in the past few seasons that it’s tough to expect the Cowboys to get a full season out of him. If they can it would be big though, with his talent undeniable.
• With two very impressive seasons on the bounce, we couldn’t keep cornerback Orlando Scandrick any lower than Very Good. The best player in the Dallas secondary, he’s really stepped up in recent years.
Wide Receiver: While Murray would be a big loss, and create a major need at running back, the top priority for the Cowboys should be keeping Dez Bryant around. An Elite talent at wide receiver, his departure would leave Dallas with only Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley as receivers on the roster with any significant playing time.
Right Tackle: The left side is fine for some time to come, but the right side is a massive question mark for the Cowboys right now, especially if Doug Free departs in free agency. Despite no longer being at the level he was a couple of seasons ago, Free is at least a known commodity, with nobosy else at the position with any playing time of note.
Defensive Line: A unit which has plenty of question marks, the Cowboys adding some new faces to their defensive line could be a major boost, even is DeMarcus Lawrence can develop in his second season. In the very least, depth is needed here.
