TE Jason Witten
When the Cowboys drafted Witten in the third round in 2003, they had finally found their franchise tight end. In his seven years with the Cowboys, Witten has started 101 out of a possible 112 games, showing how dependable he has been. He has totaled 27 touchdowns in his career and has been named to the Pro Bowl six times.
The Best of the Rest:
CB Terence Newman
Newman has been exactly what everyone in Dallas thought he would be when they drafted him: a borderline shut-down corner. He has had health problems the last couple of years, but when he is healthy he is one of the best corners in the league. He has 23 career interceptions and has been named to the Pro Bowl twice in his seven-year career.
LB Bradie James
When people think of Bradie James, the first word that should come to mind is consistency. Since becoming a full-time starter in 2005, James has never missed a game. In his five full seasons as a starter, he has eclipsed 100 tackles four times. Despite being so consistent every year, James has never been named to a Pro Bowl. His best season came in 2008 when he totaled 116 tackles, eight sacks, and three forced fumbles.
Both Tony Romo and Keith Davis were undrafted free agents who signed with the Cowboys after the 2003 draft. We all know how talented Romo is, and this year he finally showed that he is capable of winning a playoff game. He has been named to the Pro Bowl three times and has 107 career touchdown passes.
Davis was a special teams ace in his time with the Cowboys. He was consistently the best player on the special teams unit, which eventually led to a chance to start at safety next to Roy Williams. While he wasn't the most instinctive safety, he did a decent job of holding the position until the Cowboys found a more suitable replacement.
