Dan Quinn’s philosophy as a defensive coordinator will differ from Mike Nolan’s, but it won’t matter without an upgrade in talent. Amari Cooper had his second consecutive 1,000-yard season for the Cowboys, and team owner Jerry Jones gave him high marks for it by calling him one of the best talents during his tenure in Dallas.

Donovan Wilson logged 10 starts in 14 games in 2020 and solidified himself as the playmaking safety the Cowboys have been looking for. Trevon Diggs was a second-round steal at cornerback, and he became the first rookie Cowboys defender to led the team in pass breakups and interceptions.
