The Dallas Cowboys are hoping to make it back to the playoffs for the first time since 2009. To do so, they will need a collective group effort from all 53 men on the roster.
Of course, Dallas will rely on its superstars to perform well, but it will take more than that. In order to have a successful 16-game season, some lesser-known players must step up.
It’s difficult to predict under-the-radar players to erupt because most haven’t seen the field much. Players like Sean Lee and Bruce Carter are expected to be great this season because of what they’ve shown us in the past.
The Cowboys’ roster is one of the most skilled in the NFL, but here are five less-familiar guys poised for a breakout year.
