Not so Fast on a Reggie Robinson Position Change for Dallas Cowboys?

One of the bigger question marks following the week to week was how they came to their game-day rosters. With throughout the and at times some poor play, it was shocking that fourth-round pick Reggie Robinson couldn't find his way onto the field.

But that was one of many weird occurrences that went down during 's lone season as the Dallas Cowboys .

Heading into the 2021 and under a new defensive regime and scheme, Reggie Robinson has a chance at a fresh start, but the Cowboys need to decide where he plays moving forward.

Last week, Mike Fisher reported that the Cowboys were planning on moving Robinson back to , where he starred at the University of Tulsa. I hypothesized the position change as well, noting that he has the requisite length to play in 's cover-3 scheme.

However, now is pumping the brakes on that and predicting that the Cowboys may continue to develop Reggie Robinson at safety.

Robinson is a really good athlete that has 4.4 speed. He plays with range and has good playmaking ability. Though he didn't play at safety in college, he was a safety in high school and was recruited by Tulsa to play safety in their program.

With the Cowboys picking at 10 and several cornerbacks available to them in that range, it makes sense for the Cowboys to continue giving Robinson an opportunity at safety. And without a on the roster, Robinson might find himself with a huge opportunity this spring and summer.

Having an ability to play both corner and safety will play huge dividends for the Dallas Cowboys. As they work through the and draft process, they'll have a much better indication of where he fits in Dan Quinn's by the time the team report said for offseason training activities.
