Recent history shows the Dallas Cowboys aren’t afraid to rely heavily on rookies, or inexperience in general, at important positions.
2015 saw the keys to the Corvette (so to speak) handed to Joseph Randle in the run game. That worked out, um, not well. 2016 saw the Cowboys roll forward with rookies at quarterback, running back, and defensive tackle, among others.
Last season the Cowboys leaned heavily on rookie cornerbacks, plus they entrusted their backup quarterback position to an undrafted rookie (never mind that he was backing up a second-year player).
2018 looks to be no different as Dallas will likely rely heavily on Leighton Vander Esch at linebacker, Connor Williams at left guard, and Michael Gallup in the pass game.
