Imagining the new CB Roster

The Cowboys have come a long way in getting ball hawks on their team playing the cornerback position.

Trevon Diggs led the NFL in interceptions in his 2nd year – 2021.

DaRon Bland was 2nd in the NFL in interceptions in his rookie year, despite not playing until late in the season.

Stephon Gilmore is a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

Imagine adding Emmanuel Forbes to this group, a ball hawk in his own right who had 3 pick-6 plays in college, and blocked two kicks.

The Cowboys would likely get burned a few times with this defensive backfield, because they take chances to get the ball. But the payoff in turnovers will probably outweigh the risk. Turnovers are the #1 stat that determines which team wins ball games. Having a fierce pass rush, with this group of corners playing on the backend will serve the Cowboys defense really well.

And don’t forget Jourdan Lewis, a sticky defender.
