The Cowboys roster is abundant with young talent | #DallasCowboys



These are exciting times to be a Dallas Cowboys fan, and looking at the roster, clearly this will continue for some time. Apart from superstars like Dak Prescott, Zack Martin and Demarcus Lawrence, the Cowboys have one of the best young crops in the entire league, led by three guys ranked into the top 25 players under-25 by the Pro Football Focus.


Micah Parsons is the best of the trio. The defensive rookie of the year in 2021 made a serious case about being the Defensive Player of the Year in the league, but ultimately nobody was taking last season's award away from T.J. Watt. He moved seamlessly to the NFL, quickly becoming a nightmare for opposing offenses with his pass-rushing qualities and coverage range as a linebacker. And he's still growing.


CeeDee Lamb has established himself as the Cowboys' number one receiver following Amari Cooper's departure. With his blend of athleticism, route running and hands, he's a threat in every ounce of grass and you often have to give him double coverage looks.


Trevon Diggs led the NFL in interceptions last year with 11, and he also got consideration for Defensive Player of the Year for some time, although his level of play declined through the second half of the season. His aggressiveness to cut out routes is a fresh sight for the Cowboys - sometimes it results in long touchdowns, but most of the time, he can make plays with the ball. That's a worthy trade-off.


With so many young talents growing on the roster, Dallas will be a problem for their NFC East foes for a long time still.
