Cowboys’ Trysten Hill to Make Regular Season Debut vs Dolphins?

A lot has been made of the Dallas ’ decision to make 2019 second-round pick Trysten Hill inactive for the first two games of the regular season. With also being inactive, people attempted to compare the two to make broad generalizations about Hill’s present and future in the NFL. The problem is these two are vastly different players in different situations.

Speaking to 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Friday, Cowboys Vice President talked about where Trysten Hill was in his development and ability. It sounds as if Hill is ready to make his regular-season debut for the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

With and likely out for this game, the Dallas Cowboys could use some help on the . and are the only true defensive tackles set to be active for the Cowboys, which makes Hill’s debut a foregone conclusion. With Crawford and Woods dealing with Hill will have the opportunity to play a lot against a Miami Dolphins that has allowed 10 in their first two games.

Crawford and Woods’ absences means the Dallas Cowboys will have around 40-50 snaps to be distributed to the rest of the . Christian Covington will get the first shot to play the 1-technique defensive . and will get some of those Tyrone Crawford snaps since they can play both on the interior and on the like Crawford can.

There will be opportunities for Hill, especially if the Dallas Cowboys can get out to a big lead. If he’s active, which all signs indicate he will be, then the Cowboys’ will use this game to get Hill as much experience as possible.

Trysten Hill is a player that and even are really excited about. They believe that he has what it takes to be an elite in the NFL, he just needs to refine certain aspects of his game. Hill has elite quickness and get off on the snap. He’s very good at getting penetration and causing disruption in the backfield. He needs to work on his technique and playing with better leverage when engaged with blockers, but the tools and the effort are there for Marinelli to turn him into the dominant 3-technique defensive tackle that they’ve been looking for.

Facing the Miami Dolphins on Sunday will is an excellent opportunity for Trysten Hill to get some experience and earn opportunities to be on the gameday in the future.

Trysten Hill has the skills to be a force for the Dallas Cowboys. With the depth that the Cowboys have along the defensive line, it’s not always possible to bring everyone you have to the gameday roster. With injuries and earned opportunities, the time has come for Trysten Hill to get an opportunity to show his skills in the regular season. That’s a good thing for the Dallas Cowboys. Not so much for Josh Rosen and the Miami Dolphins.
