Dallas Cowboys are short changing their best corner

    The Dallas Cowboys seek to boost coverage under former Seattle Seahawks’ secondary guru Kris Richard. Demoting his best cover corner is not a good start.
    Dallas Cowboys minicamps often include experimentation so depth chart moves at this point should be taken with a grain of salt. That being said, one can only judge off past or present roster decisions.

    The current backseat usage of corner Jourdan Lewis is every bit worthy of critique and then some. The team’s most talented cover corner is no longer starting outside.

    Instead Lewis is being limited to starting slot snaps while a converted safety and fellow 2017 draftee man the outside. Slot coverage is important but this setup is reducing the snaps of a player the defense needs to get the most from.

    New secondary coach Kris Richard has vocally stated his preference for big corners. Apparently Lewis (5’10, 195) is being slighted for not fitting the height mold.

    I guess these current NFL corners aren’t worthy of starting outside…Casey Hayward (2016 / 2017 Pro Bowl), Kyle Fuller (NFL All-Rookie Team), Adam Jones (2014 All-Pro, 2015 Pro Bowl), Brent Grimes (4-time Pro Bowler). None of those are over 5’11, 192.

    Shouldn’t the master of Seattle’s infamous Legion of of Boom secondary know best?

    Training camp hasn't started. Richard is just seeing what he's got. Too early for second guessing.

    Yeah, I'm concerned. Could be nothing, just moving guys around in the offseason, but it could also mean this guy really believes he's reinvented the wheel and great length is the only way to go at cornerback.

    As I said before. If Lewis is a backup when the season starts, meaning not one of the top 3 corners on the depth chart, you can have Kris Richard. At that point I would have already seen enough to know he was a terrible hire.

    Heard Nate on the radio yesterday talking about this. He spoke with some people out at The Star who suggested they are experimenting.

    I don't take editorials by fan sites seriously.

    Lewis played like 8 games last year as a rookie and was a 3rd round pick. Im not sure we can call a guy like that our best cover corner. Im not we can call anyone in our secondary great at anything to be honest. All potential, bust, or backups out there at this point.

    He was their best Corner last year.
    It's laughable to think that he wouldn't be one
    of the starters this year.

    New coaches mean new preferences for technique. He's not looking for height so they look better in prom photo. He wants tall guys because of how he uses them.

    Lot of new coaches. Some guys will move up the depth chart. Some guys will move down. Expect it.

    You’ve said numerous times Lewis was a better slot corner than outside. Acting like the internet forgot your nonsense :rolleyes:

    Brace yourself. I'm sure this will be brought up at least a handful more times before training camp.

    Am I the only one who thought Chidobe showed more last year?


    Also, Byron Jones moving back to corner was always going to be a starter.

    Chidobe and Byron were going to be the wide guys. Lewis is competing against Brown to play the Scandrick role.
