    Cowboys CB Marquez White Could Emerge in 2018

    Last year, rookie cornerback Marquez White had to watch from the Dallas Cowboys' . He heads into 2018 still with the club and hoping to have a far bigger role next season.

    Taken in the of last year's draft, White failed to make the roster but stayed in Dallas the entire season on the practice squad. He was signed to a futures contract after .

    There is a good precedent for Marquez to have a bigger role next year. Other taken in the sixth round, CB (2016 draft) and safeties (2016) and (2017), were all contributors last season. Brown will likely be one of the team's top-three corners in 2018 and either Frazier or Woods could be competing for starting roles at .

    With veteran potentially gone as a casualty, the fourth spot on the cornerback could have open competition. Even if Scandrick returns, the fifth spot should up for grabs.

    Another veteran, , is a this year and his return is hard to project.

    Marquez White will likely join Duke Thomas, another young prospect from last year, and other hopefuls the Cowboys may add from this year's rookie pool. There should be at least one spot on the roster open for them to make the team, and perhaps two depending on what happens with Scandrick.

    The arrival of as the new and assumed future will also factor in. Richard liked bigger corners in Seattle and White is listed at 6'1″ on the team's office roster. That could help him catch the eye of his new position coach.

    While late-round picks have few guarantees in the NFL, they certainly have a leg up on any undrafted competition. Teams are naturally biased toward drafted players; wanting to prove themselves right for selecting them.

    Will Kris Richard's arrival, roster changes, and his drafted status help Marquez White make the Cowboys roster in 2018? Time will tell, but he certainly should not be forgotten about this .

    The cowboys kill me with their personnel decisions sometimes. Marquez White had a good preseason but he doesn’t even make the roster BUT… Nolan Carroll and Bene Benwikere do???? White was a draft pick, while Carroll was a waste of money and Bene was a waste of trade. I hope they get the man some real reps

    Michael White

    I second that…I always questioned the signing of Nolan Carroll and then we draft 4 defensive backs…Why not save the money and I’m still wondering about Benwikere..wasn’t he the lead actor in Transformers???

    Agree w Mr Diggs. Stud at FSU.

    The Cowboys secondary will definitely have depth , that’s for sure .
