A Look At Our CB/Safety Depth After Draft

Well after a very interesting draft weekend I figured I would list our CB/Safety Depth Chart for everyone to our depth at the positions now.


 Please note that the only the starters listed are guaranteed depth chart positions as of right now numbers 2+ are my predicted spots.

So with this depth at secondary we are set for some interesting training camp battles to stay on the roster. I personally see Jerome Carter, Michael Hawkins, Pat Watkins, and Stephen Hodge to be cut before the 53 man roster is due in.

  1. Tom

    I don’t think Davis will be back though…

  2. I think they will keep DeAngelo Smith at corner, and I can truly see Pat Watkins nailing down the strong safety spot. I can also see people like Hawkins, Battle, Carter, and possibly Ball getting cut

  3. James Edwards

    Thrugh the whole offseason I was thinking our WR depth is more of a concern than our secondary,just because there were plenty of secondary players in the later rounds of the draft.And now look uncertainty at WR…..still

  4. Mike

    Sorry but Brown will be cut before Watkins.

  5. nate

    the 2009 secondery might look like this:


    1.terrance newman
    2.mike jenkins
    3.orlando scandrick
    4.mike mickens
    5.aaron ball

    strong safety

    1.gerald sensabaugh
    2.michael hamlin
    3.maybe stephen hodge if he is a special teams beast and can also play a little linebacker or even fullback

    free safety

    1.ken hamlin
    2. deangelo smith

  6. nate

    oops, i ment alan ball…i have a buddy named aaron ball and i always get their names switched around…

  7. Josh Bradley

    great list nate but switch Michael Hamlin and DeAngelo Smith around casue smith is more of a SS and Hamlin a FS like the other Hamlin

  8. nate

    i hear ya. i want the best players on the field, period. if sensabough plays to his potential, he should have the strong position locked up for a while.

  9. nate

    actually deangelo smith is a former corner considered too slow to play more than zone at the position so an over the top kind of free safety position is where the cowboys are going to play him. he will also be used as reserve cornerback depth. mike hamlin played free safety at clemson, but dc.com reports that him and ken could eventaully be the starters at safety. meaning ken at free and mike at strong.

  10. Josh Bradley

    ok i get what you mean bout smith now….but dont expect the other hamlin to start SS this year maybe in 1-3 years but if Gerald plays like i think he will then mike will not be starting SS for a LONG TIME
