Who showed out the most on Saturday night?
The Dallas Cowboys opened up their 2019 preseason Saturday night against the San Francisco 49ers. Despite being the first preseason game, many starters did appear in the game and played well, albeit for a brief time. The backups on the other hand, were a mixed bag.
Dallas ended up losing the game 17-9, but more importantly their offense was outscored 10-0 in the second half. Overall, it was a fairly sloppy game on both sides, but the Cowboys did have some players shine. Here are three Cowboys whose stock went up on Saturday night.
When the Dallas Cowboys began the 2019 offseason, many believed upgrading the safety position was their greatest need. Names like Taylor Rapp, Juan Thornhill, and Johnathan Abram were linked to the Cowboys around draft time, but the team waited until the 213th pick to select safety Donovan Wilson out of Texas A&M.
