    Dallas Cowboys Defensive Line Looking Absolutely Stacked

    Don't look now, but compared to years past the defensive line is looking as if it is absolutely stacked full of talent. Whether it's defensive end or defensive , the depth at both positions looks pretty formidable right now. This could possibly be the best DL unit has had since joining the Cowboys.

    On paper, the Dallas Cowboys current depth along the defensive line seems to be an upgrade over what we saw on the field in the against the . That last impression is the way many of us still view the Cowboys DL and unfortunately they were embarrassingly manhandled in that contest.

    Thankfully though that was last year and this is now. The Dallas Cowboys clearly wanted to upgrade their DL and it's really starting to look as if they've done just that. But don't take my word for it, let's take a look at the current depth along the defensive line so that you can get a better idea of what I'm talking about.

    Defensive End

    Defensive Tackle

    Hybrid DE/DT

    As you can see, the depth throughout the defensive line is pretty impressive and that's not even including players like DeMarcus Lawrence and Tyrone Crawford who have yet to practice. Nearly every listed above has stood out at some point this and that could make things extremely difficult for the Dallas Cowboys when the time to make cuts.

    The Dallas Cowboys typically only keep around 10 defensive lineman on their . That means only about half of the current DL on the roster make the team. There's a quite a bit of talent who could get released because of the numbers crunch and some of those might surprisingly be veterans.

    If some of these younger undrafted players like Ricky Walker and Daniel Wise continue to impress maybe Tyrone Crawford becomes expendable. He still has two years remaining on his current contract, but the Cowboys could save a little money if they or released him. It's an option, but these young guns will definitely need to prove they're capable of replacing his production.

    It's hard to believe the Dallas Cowboys have such a plethora of riches, or so it seems, along their defensive line. It's a position they've undervalued for years now, but it finally looks as if they could put together a pretty formidable unit for the 2019 season. That's what we all hope at least.

    What do you think of the Dallas Cowboys depth along the defensive line?

    I believe in our DLine as long as they can stay on the field. With DLaw hurt, Crawford (Hurt/Suspension), Randy G. Always suspended. Taco trying to put it all together. Quinn suspended for 2 games sux bigtime, I wanted to see him put together a 16 game season and make everyone else better with his agility. I’m thinking that Maliek and Trysten will be a top notch duo that will create some havoc & Opportunities for our Guys on the outside and Linebackers in particularly Smith and Vander Esch. So I feel like our Defense overall will come thru and help out Offense out ALOT!

    I wasn’t impressed with the backups in the 49ers game there were no stops for lost, I felt the 49ers DL looked much better. I was disappointed in Covington and Hill. Hopefully we’ll see better results tomorrow.

    Ahad, Holy Dabir of Aleppo

    Hill is on the way to bring the bust I already know he is, DLaw is hurt, Crawford is lucky Quinn got suspended, or he’d be a cap casualty, and Gregory is a mirage on the Rico Gathers level. Not nearly as strong as you think
