With just one game left in the preseason for the Dallas Cowboys, we announce eight clear-cut winners of their respective positional battles.
With the completion of the third preseason game for the Dallas Cowboys, all eyes now turn to the roster and the upcoming final cut-down day. Scheduled to take place this weekend following the team’s preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night, the Cowboys will be forced to trim their roster from 90-players to only 53.
This marks the official end of any positional battles that have been taking place throughout training camp and into the preseason. For some, the battle is already over. Here are eight players that we believe have emerged as winners of their respective positional battles.
Devin Smith, WR
A second-round selection in 2015, injuries led Smith to being unemployed last July. The Cowboys took a flier on the speedster back in January and it appears their gamble has paid off. Smith has posted stellar performances in the preseason and in training camp, separating himself from the pack.
Although both Smith and Cedrick Wilson could be in a battle for the last remaining roster spot on the wide receiver depth chart, we think there is a real chance the Cowboys opt to keep both wideouts. Therefore we are declaring them both winners. If the Cowboys decide not to keep them both, Smith may have the bigger upside due to his former draft status.
