Cowboys News: NFL’s best young talent? Is Dallas better than 2022?

The Cowboys’ 2023 preseason slate of opponents was revealed when word came down about the club’s 17-game regular season schedule. Now there are actual dates and start times attached to each contest. Fans will be keyed in on the pecking order for various roster battles and a key one anticipated this summer will be how the offensive line is configured with three starting-caliber tackles and a hole at left guard.

The roster is filled with young talent whose roles are cemented in the team’s plans, with linebacker Micah Parsons earning honors as the top NFL player under the age of 25 and two others also ranking in the top 25. Parsons is an image of the evolving NFL, where position-less players can be true game wreckers and adjust depending on the situation.

The addition of wide receiver Brandin Cooks to an already potent offense reflected in a top 5 offensive win-share projection for next season. Part of this optimism is related to the growing connection between quarterback Dak Prescott and new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Find out about their budding relationship, a look at a rookie pass rusher and more in the latest News and Notes.
