The long-term future of the Cowboys is decidedly... mixed?
Every NFL offseason brings plenty of rankings in various categories. Most of the rankings are focused on the upcoming season, in this case, the 2021 NFL season. But every year ESPN puts out a ranking that tries to project a team’s future over the next three years.
This year, that ranking for the Dallas Cowboys is a decidedly mixed bag. There is good news to be found, and bad news. As such, the Cowboys are directly in the middle-of-the-pack when it comes to their ranking.
First, a breakdown of how the rankings are made.
To project which NFL franchises are in the best shape for the next three seasons (2021 through 2023), we asked our panel of experts — Jeremy Fowler, Louis Riddick, Seth Walder and Field Yates — to rate each team’s quarterback situation, remaining (non-QB) roster, drafting ability, front office and coaching using this scale:
100: A+ (Elite)90: A (Great)80: B (Very good)70: C (Average)60: D (Very bad)50 and below: F (Disastrous)
