Offense: QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR Allen Hurns, WR Terrance Williams, WR Cole Beasley, TE Rico Gathers, LT Tyron Smith, LG Connor Williams, OC Travis Frederick, RG Zack Martin, RT La'el Collins
Defense: DL David Irvin, DL Maliek Collins, ED Demarcus Lawrence, ED Taco Charlton, LB Sean Lee, LB Leighton Vander Esch, CB Chidobe Awuzie, CB Jourdan Lewis, S Byron Jones, S Jeff Heath, DB Anthony Brown
Outside of pass-catchers, the 2018 Dallas Cowboys offensive lineup is obvious. No one is coming close to pushing quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott for a starting job. Their offensive line is made up of four top-40 picks and La'el Collins, who has started at both guard and right tackle for the team after he went undrafted.
The questions about the WR unit are legitimate, though. Terrance Williams might have to be the No. 2 wide receiver after posting less than 600 yards in back-to-back seasons, despite commanding a $7.25 million dead cap that locks his spot on Dallas' roster.
Unfortunately for rookie Michael Gallup, only three wide receivers (Stefon Diggs, John Brown and Jamison Crowder) in the last four draft classes eclipsed 600 yards after being selected 81st or later. Between that reality and the fact that Dallas' top three tight ends (Rico Gathers, Geoff Swaim and Dalton Schultz) have only registered a combined nine NFL receptions, you begin to see that Prescott isn't going to have much help on the other end of throws this season.
On defense, the biggest question is which linebacker will be off the field in nickel looks. On plays where they line up in a 4-3 defense, linebackers Sean Lee, Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith should all be on the field. When a linebacker has to drop, though, the question is whether 2018 first-round pick Vander Esch or 2016 second-round pick Smith will be the one tapped out. As a long-term scenario, this will be solved by the 31-year-old Lee aging out of his role, but in the immediate future one of these young top-35 picks is going to be on the bench more often than not.
