There you have it. Now, there are a couple of things that you may shake your head at: 1) no fullback – the reason I think you go without one is Martin Rucker and Jon Phillips can both play the h-back position and since the Cowboys don’t have a fullback that has stood out in the preseason they could go this way. If they don’t, I think they’ll keep Gronkowski at fullback and drop Rucker from tight end; 2) They may have players like Bruce Carter starting on the PUP list or the NFI list which would free up a spot or two, but I didn’t want to assume in my post.

Let me know what you think.

    DB’s Josh Thomas and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah will BOTH make the final cut.

  2. Alex Weston says:

    they may, but I hope not. Neither one has done anything in the preseason so far, and with Garretts comments about looking at performance over number and draft status, I hope he sticks with it.
