J.J. Wilcox sounds like the real deal for Dallas

It sounds like the Dallas Cowboys might be in good shape going into 2014 with J.J. Wilcox as their starting free safety. Hearing good things about J.J. Wilcox as the FS this season.

What’s the ceiling on this defense in ’14?

Dallas, TX – The enigma this offseason has centered around a defense full of question-marks, who’s going to do what or who’s going to play where? Well the Cowboys are less than a month away from starting Training Camp and will be looking to find a few answers to these questions that have been posed all offseason.

Projected Cowboys starting defensive lineup

Although they weren't wearing pads during OTAs and minicamp, we have a slightly better idea of what the Dallas Cowboys will be doing defensively in 2014. DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher are playing elsewhere and Sean Lee is likely out for the season. So, who will be in the Cowboys starting lineup when they open the season against San Francisco? Here's my prediction. Safety...

Will the battle at safety become a lot more interesting?

The Dallas Cowboys have been trying to find a replacement for Darren Woodson since his departure back in 2004, but have they really been trying that hard? Woodson was taken as the 2nd round pick for Dallas in the 1992 NFL Draft, but since his departure it has been quite the revolving door around Valley Ranch. Ken Hamlin, Roy Williams and others have all tried to emulate the future...

THE SAFETY VALVE IS OPEN: Dallas Cowboys firmly support young J.J. Wilcox following the 2014 NFL Draft | Dallas Cowboys defense

IRVING, Texas – Perhaps rookie safety Ahmad Dixon will turn into something truly special, but the numbers speak for themselves. The Dallas Cowboys drafted Dixon No. 248 overall, eight picks away from the end of the 2014 NFL Draft on Saturday. The fact that they took him means they see something promising in his play, but his position on the draft board doesn’t inspire much in...

Cowboys believe their safeties are better than people think

One of the Cowboys’ biggest needs this offseason was at safety,  but executive vice president Stephen Jones think their current group of safeties are better than people give them credit for. “We obviously feel a little bit better about our safeties than maybe some of our critics in the media,” Jones said on a conference call with season ticket holders. Jones explained why...

Stephen Jones Offers Intriguing Details in Conference Call

Stephen Jones took calls from season ticket holders and revealed several tantalizing tidbits. If you don’t have the time to listen to the call here are some of the revelations: Cowboys had Kony Ealy rated after Demarcus Lawrence and would have been a left end pass rusher and play some under tackle (3-tech). Cowboys ended up moving up for Lawrence and the rest is history. Ealy...

Dallas Cowboys ‘comfortable’ with the players they have at safety

It was difficult to find an NFL Draft analyst who didn’t have safety ranked among the Dallas Cowboys’ biggest needs heading into this weekend. The Cowboys front office didn’t share those concerns about the position. Thirteen safeties were selected in the first five rounds of this year’s draft. Dallas didn’t choose one until the seventh round, taking Baylor’s Ahmad Dixon...

Dallas Cowboys players react to Zack Martin pick

ARLINGTON, Texas — Dallas Cowboys defenders had a feeling the front office would use the sixteenth overall pick to add to their unit in Thursday night’s draft. “I think it’s C.J. Mosely,” second year safety J.J. Wilcox cried when he saw on television Commissioner Roger Goodell stride to the podium. Instead of the Alabama linebacker, who went the very next pick to the Baltimore...

Good chance J.J. Wilcox is Dallas Cowboys’ other starting safety

Mayock talked up Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix during a Thursday conference call. McShay and Kiper both have Louisville safety Calvin Pryor going to the Cowboys in the mock drafts they released...

Players Cowboys could regret passing on in 2013 NFL Draft

It's easy to look back at previous drafts and find players that, according to their production, should've been drafted higher. Obviously no team has a perfect draft. The Dallas Cowboys' 2013 haul already looks promising after one year. Travis Frederick and Terrance Williams were starters in Year One and Gavin Escobar, J.J. Wilcox and DeVonte Hollman all have some interesting...

Safety is not priority number one in this Draft.

Four Tuesdays ago I wrote this article , where I articulated my reasons why the Dallas Cowboys and newly promoted defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli should make fixing the defensive line the top priority in the 2014 draft. I am still convinced that following the old 90’s Cowboys Super Bowl team’s blueprints of a solid 8-9 man defensive front rotation is the key to getting the...

What Does The Future Hold For J.J. Wilcox?

There aren’t a lot of positives to take away from the Dallas Cowboys’ defense, particularly in the secondary. And rookie safety J.J. Wilcox had a very shaky year. And if you have already started digging into the 2014 draft, you will see many draftniks putting a safety in their first round of their mock drafts to Dallas. And while I wouldn’t necessarily be opposed to that, I...

Poll: Cowboys 1st Round pick should be used on?

If history is any indicator, then expect the Cowboys to be very quiet come the start of free agency. In fact, it could be said the Cowboys have already made their biggest splash by re-signing kicker, Dan Bailey to a 6-year deal. That being said, the Cowboys will rely on the draft more than ever. The consensus about the  Cowboys biggest weakness is on defense, mainly the defensive...
