    The Dallas Cowboys depth is being tested this with notable players missing. , , and have been out for the entirety of training camp and it remains to be seen when they'll return. will be out for some time after suffering a fractured right hand in Tuesday's practice. All of those absences at the position have created opportunities for others.

    One player who has been showing out quite regularly in training camp is Defensive End Dorance Armstrong. Last week during the team's individual pass-rush drills, Armstrong beat All-Pro Left with a nasty counter spin move.

    Then Tuesday, the second-year player added another starting tackle to his ledger in with this outstanding rush in the compete period.

    Armstrong's efforts have vaulted him ahead of former first-round pick . In the last couple days of practice, Dorance Armstrong has received the first-team reps at left defensive end, where Charlton had been filling in for DeMarcus Lawrence. Now with Quinn out, Armstrong may see reps at both defensive end spots with the first-.

    Though a lot of players are missing that might otherwise be ahead of Armstrong on the , he's been excellent all . Even if Lawrence, Gregory, Crawford, and Quinn were available, Armstrong's offseason performance has earned him snaps against the first team. However they've come, he's making them count. Aside from , there isn't a player on the defensive line that has been as good as Armstrong has through the first couple weeks of training camp.

    In his rookie year, Armstrong had a really nice camp and even played well at the start of the , but wasn't able to maintain that level of play. Heading into his second season, he's been one of the best players throughout the , minicamp, and now training camp and his stock continues to rise.

    DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn are still your starting defensive ends once they're available. However, Dorance Armstrong is going to force the Dallas Cowboys to find him a substantial role in 2019. With Quinn only signed through the and Gregory still under an indefinite from the NFL, it's very likely that Armstrong is your starting right defensive end in 2020.

    The Dallas Cowboys scouts and decision-makers continue to hit home runs in the draft and Dorance Armstrong is just another in a long line of mid to late-round selections that have blossomed for the Cowboys. Armstrong is trending in the right direction and if he can continue this trajectory will be a tremendous asset for the Dallas Cowboys in 2019 and beyond.
