What Was The Cowboys’ Biggest Miss Of 2020?

To say 2020 has been a frustrating year for the would be an understatement. Once thought of as a potential contender, now sits at 3-8 on the season heading into a Tuesday night game that will start in.

It's been bad.

But while there has been a plethora of poor decisions, bad luck, and misses from the Cowboys this calendar year, Bleacher Report tried to name the absolute worst one this week. And it's likely not what came to your mind first.

“One particular juncture might hurt the most in hindsight. That's the middle of the , when the Cowboys drafted three picks before the took Julian Blackmon.”

Not drafting Julian Blackmon. This is interesting.

Blackmon was also named to ' midseason All Rookie Team, earning the highest grade among all rookie safeties. He would've been a welcomed addition to the Cowboys for sure, but this isn't where my mind went first when thinking of their biggest miss.

Some may argue that the hire should already be considered a miss, but I'd push back on that. It's too early to pin this all on him, plus the luck this season has been catastrophic.

Two decisions stick out to me.

First, not extending . Despite suffering a major season ending injury against the Giants, Prescott was playing some of the best football of his life this season. Hopefully he still wants to be with the Cowboys longterm, but it's possible another next year could sour the relationship.

The next miss hurt the 2020 team directly: not re- . The former pick has been incredible the past couple of seasons, and is continuing his dominant ways with the now playoff contending Dolphins.

Dallas' defense has been pretty much horrible this season, and Jones would've really helped on the back end.

So of all the potential candidates, what would you say was the Cowboys' biggest miss of 2020?
