In the , the Cowboys rectified some of the depth issues when they spent three draft picks on , , and . Through and minicamp, it's Anthony Brown who has the inside track to be the starter opposite of Diggs. However, that spot opposite the Cowboys' second-round pick from 2020 has the potential to be a revolving door.
