True, and I’m guessing here, but I would think at the very least, at that position, he can give valuable advice as far as technique, how tackles will tend to adjust, and how to readjust.Love seeing this. Being a great player doesn't make you a great coach. But, it can't hurt in May
My how this DL has evolved quickly, no longer yesterday's DL lineup, nice depth with ceiling still.Demarcus Ware is a great leadership model...and he adds to the defensive line positional group.
Whether he’s called an end or a linebacker, Parsons is the primary edge player of the Cowboys. He gets as many snaps off the EDGE as he can handle. Players like Lawrence, Dante Fowler Jr., Dorance Armstrong, Sam Williams, Chauncey Golston and possibly even Takk McKinley, split up the remaining opportunities.
While Fowler (28) and McKinley (27) are resigned to veteran rotational roles, Armstrong (25) and Williams (24) are ascending players who are possibly on the cusp of breakout seasons. Quinn’s unlikely to ever completely abandon his rotation on the line but it’s safe to say he’s interested in getting ample opportunities for his young and ascending players.
Things aren’t quite so crowded on the inside of the Dallas defensive line. The rookie Mazi Smith and Johnathan Hankins are virtual locks as the top two 1-tech tackles. While Osa Odighizuwa is the top player at 3-tech.
