The Cowboys chose Hill with their first pick of the 2019 draft (58th overall) to supplement the middle of the defensive line. Hill’s tabbed to play the 3-tech spot, and will be asked to use his athleticism and quick-twitch get-off to create havoc in the opposing backfield. That’s something the Cowboys need, especially now that David Irving will no longer be with the team.But there’s another aspect to the middle of the defensive line Youth Michael Gallup Jersey , and that’s clogging the middle and stuffing the run. The Cowboys got worked toward the end of the season in that department, here’s how John Owning explained it:Anybody who watched the playoff loss to Los Angeles knows the torture of the Rams running backs ripping off huge chunks of yards right through the middle of the Cowboys defense. It was maddening and the Cowboys couldn’t do anything about it.This offseason, they made a move to help with the problem. In fact, SB Nation calls it “the under-the-radar move to love” for the Cowboys this offseason. That was the signing of Christian Covington.Covington was a part-time player for Houston, but he is particularly effective in handling the run. We go back to our friend John Owning again who did a full breakdown of Covington when the Cowboys signed him. Check out Covington’s technique against the run.He does an excellent job of engaging the blocker and then mirroring him down the line while still controlling him with his hands. He drives his man slowly back until he is finally right in front of the ball-carrier. Covington prevents any holes from opening up on the play side and helps in preventing a cutback lane. Obviously J.J. Watt causes the real disruption on this play Michael Gallup Jersey Stitched , acting almost as a 3-tech in this alignment, but Covington does the unsung work of containing his blocker and driving him back into the play side. This is the dirty work that needs to be done when handling the run. Covington also had his best year as a pass rusher in 2018, racking up 3.5 sacks in a part-time role. That’s not going to be his calling card, but the more he can show in that area the better his chances are to live up to the “underrated” tag that has been given to his acquisition. The Cowboys have a lot of competition going on at the defensive tackle spot. At the 1-tech position, Antwaun Woods returns Cheap Allen Hurns Youth Jersey , as does Daniel Ross. And with a full contingent at the 3-tech position, there will be a fierce battle down the roster for a spot on the 53-man roster. We are reminded by K.D. that comp picks could play a role if all things are equal at the bottom of the roster.The Cowboys will gladly “lose” that comp pick if Covington can be a force in the middle, especially if he can help shut down the opposition’s run game. We’ll see if we love this under-the-radar move at the end of the season.

The Cowboys are just about to start their first OTA session Youth Dorance Armstrong Jersey , they haven’t even convened for training camp or played a preseason game yet. There is still so far to go until the games of are played, That hasn’t stopped CG Technology from creating spreads for each through Week 16. (No Week 17 spreads because of the unpredictability of the lineups for those games).The Cowboys do pretty well as they are the favorite in nine of the games. They are also in a pick ‘em game with the Los Angeles Rams where the Cowboys are at home, and are curiously in a pick ‘em game with Washington on the road. Not sure why they wouldn’t be the favorite in that game. Dallas are prohibitive favorites when they host the New York Giants, the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills. They split with the Philadelphia Eagles, each team is the favorite when they are at home. The Cowboys are underdogs against some big dogs Dorance Armstrong Jersey Stitched , the New Orleans Saints, the New England Patriots and the Chicago Bears are all favorites as the Cowboys are on the road for all three of those games. Dallas are favorites (or pick ‘em) in all of their home games and are favorites (or pick ‘em) in four away games.Expect these lines to change drastically as the season begins, but it gives you a feel for how oddsmakers are feeling about the Cowboys right now.
