Right now we’re all just guessing.
Somehow, almost overnight, the Dallas Cowboys solved their issue at cornerback.
Maybe it really was overnight, though, the night of April 28th, 2017 when the Cowboys drafted Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis in the second and third rounds, respectively.
It took all but one evening to do what the Cowboys tried so hard to accomplish with Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in 2012, and the future at cornerback looks bright.
What about safety, though? Bring that up with Cowboys fans and they’ll say there hasn’t been an established one since Darren Woodson, never mind Roy Williams.
Dallas has been sorely needing legitimate safety play for some time, and many thought they’d answered the call with the drafting of Byron Jones in the first round three years ago.
Depending on who you ask, Byron has been solid or disappointing. The fact is he’s been a little bit of both, so much so that even the subject of whether or not his option will be picked up is a massive debate.
