    Fifth-round rookie Pat Watkins is reportedly the favorite to start at free safety for Dallas, over incumbents Keith Davis and Willie Pile.

    Watkins has been the story of Cowboys training camp. An athletic 6-5 specimen, he is someone to monitor in deep dynasty IDP leagues.

    Seems unlikely that he starts opening day. Thinking mid season at the earliest.

    Exactly the same thing I was thinking. With the bye week coming so soon, perhaps that might be the time to make the switch.

    Watkins has been my "favorite to start at free safety" since we drafted him. I still can't figure out why we paid Davis all that money to be a STs ace.

    Was Davis signed before or after the draft?

    That's what I thought we signed Coleman for. Expensive insurance if that's why we signed Davis.

    This is great news.

    After seeing Watkins in camp the last two days .. He's very fluid and looks to be a hard worker. I hope it really works out.

    I just hope he is better than anybody else on the team. He's just a rookie, and really doesn't have the credentials to be "awesome" at this point in time. He wasn't drafted on the first day, and being that, he is not an elite player ready to take on the NFL's best WRs. I just hope he can learn the game as he goes.
