As the 2020 season went along, one of the major issues that stood out was the lack of depth at cornerback. With injuries throughout the year to Chidobe Awuzie, Anthony Brown, and then-rookie Trevon Diggs, the Cowboys struggled to stop opponents in the passing game. Practice squad player Rashard Robinson saw a significant amount of snaps for the Cowboys, which led to a major focus this offseason.
In the 2021 offseason, the Cowboys rectified some of the depth issues when they spent three draft picks on Kelvin Joseph, Nahshon Wright, and Israel Mukuamu. Through OTAs and minicamp, it’s Anthony Brown who has the inside track to be the starter opposite of Diggs. However, that spot opposite the Cowboys’ second-round pick from 2020 has the potential to be a revolving door. With that possibility, Trevon Diggs needs to quickly become not only the Dallas Cowboys’ best cornerback but one that’s capable of closing down half the field most weeks.
