We're doing a series to provide an outlook on the Cowboys' roster until training camp arrives. Episode 10, cornerbacks
Trevon Diggs broke out in 2021 and quickly became one of the NFL's best cornerbacks. He's not an elite player as he still allows receivers to get behind him because of his aggressiveness, but it was definitely a plus in 2021, as he netted 11 interceptions and made a ton of game-changing plays for Dallas.
The rest of the team should look just like 2021, with underrated cornerback Anthony Brown starting on the other side. He's not as aggressive as Diggs and he doesn't have a lot of picks to show, but he still provides quality play with a good blend of mobility, athleticism and intelligence to read the offense.
The slot corner job will again belong to Jourdan Lewis, a position that he's more than capable of covering and holding his own. The biggest question mark, obviously, is Kelvin Joseph. Everybody knows how talented he is, but there's a possible connection to a homicide case back in March that may net him a suspension to start the year. As nothing has been announced by the league by now, we can only wait for more information.
This is one of the Cowboys' deepest cornerback rooms in a long-time.
Cornerback room grade: 4,5/5. With a proven star and two good guys playing alongside him, the starter part is fine. Depth needs some attention, but it doesn't hurt the team overall. The Cowboys can be happy with the group.
