Why wait? Let's take a sneak peak into the new player personnel matchups that are now on the table for the Dallas Cowboys 2015 season. Each team on the schedule (except for Washington, he he he) has new first-round blood in their lineups that will be projected to start. How will Dallas matchup against them? Let's see.
In the NFL, a cornerback can’t hide. Although we doubt Byron Jones takes over as the number one corner immediately, he will undoubtedly face some of the top receiving threats of the league. Offensive coordinators stay up late at night to try and dictate matchups and you can bet they will try to test the rookie as much as possible. At least, until he proves it to be a bad idea.
Meanwhile, even if Randy Gregory starts out as a situational pass rusher, the stalwart left tackles aren’t likely to be subbing out to make life easy on the second round pick. He’ll get his opportunities against the best blind-side protectors the pro level has to offer.
