10 Dallas Cowboys Who Won’t Make the Final Cut

The first wave of preseason cuts is here, by the end of the day the Dallas Cowboys will have to cut down to the league mandated 75-man roster.

Here are 10 players that I predict won’t make the final cut.

B.W. Webb, CB, Dallas Cowboys

For the most part, B.W. Webb has been unimpressive. I truly believe that Sterling Moore, Tyler Patmon and Terrance Mitchell have leapfrogged him on the depth chart. The fact that he can’t stay healthy and is in danger of missing, yet, another game isn’t helping his cause.

Jeff Heath, SS, Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys have tried to move Jeff Heath around in their defensive scheme, giving him snaps at both strong safety and free safety. Unfortunately, Heath isn’t very good at either. In Week 3 he didn’t play because of an elbow injury.

Nick Hayden, DT, Dallas Cowboys

I respect Nick Hayden because he seized the opportunity in front of him. Last season, no one expected him to make the team, much less start. Unfortunately, he isn’t very good at stopping the run and offers nothing in regards to pass rushing. What good is a 1-tech defensive tackle that can’t stop the run?

Adewale Ojomo, DE, Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys have been moving Adewale Ojomo all over the defensive front in hopes of finding him a home. Unfortunately, he’s been awful against the run. This defense is already littered with guys that can’t stop the run.

Matt Johnson, SS, Dallas Cowboys

It’s been time for the Cowboys to cut ties with Matt Johnson. I like the guy and I like the prospect of what he might be one day, but the Cowboys need help now.

Chris Boyd, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Chris Boyd is a guy that I like because he’s a big guy at six-foot-four, 210-pounds. Unfortunately, he hasn’t shown up in any of the preseason games. In fact, he’s 0-for-three when he’s been targeted.

Dezmon Briscoe, WR, Dallas Cowboys

As with Chris Boyd, Dezmon Briscoe is a guy that I like because he’s a big receiver. Unfortunately that hasn’t translated to the field and his 33.3 percent catch rating shows it. When Cowboys Qb’s threw at Briscoe their passer rating dropped to 50.7, second-lowest on the team behind Chris Boyd’s 39.6.

Tom Honrsey, P, Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys only have room for one punter, and Tom Hornsey failed to make a good impression when he was given the chance. Barring injury, I don’t see him making the team.

Caleb Hanie, QB, Dallas Cowboys

I’ve maintained that the Cowboys would only be carrying two quarterbacks during the season, and Caleb Hanie hasn’t done anything to make me think otherwise. He’s getting the axe when the first wave of cuts comes through.

Dustin Vaughan, QB, Dallas Cowboys

Dustin Vaughan is a guy that I think the Cowboys will try to keep on their practice squad. I like some of the things he does on the field, but Vaughan needs a lot of coaching if he’s going to be anything more than a backup at this level.
