The swing tackle position continues to be a major problem for the Dallas Cowboys. It was believed that it would be down to five players, led by rookie Matt Waletzko.
But, Waletzko is still undergoing shoulder surgery. It’s not clear how long he will be out. Amon Simon, Josh Ball, Isaac Alarcon and Aviante Collins are now eligible for the final spot.
Ball is the favorite because of his upside, but continues be underwhelming. Also the undrafted rookie Simons and veteran Collins.
Isaiah Wynn is a former first-round draft pick who has been with New England Patriots ever since 2018. It has been both positives and challenging times.
He has played in 34 career games, having started 33. Even some at guard. His career has been marred by a variety of injuries. He played 16 games in 2021. This was his longest career.
Tyron Smith will be out of action at some point during the season, which is a harsh reality. Terence Steele, the concern’s right tackle, is also showing his worth. Despite the fact La’el Collins was let go by the Dallas Cowboys, Steele is considered a worthy starter.
Wynn, who has played both left and right tackle in the Cowboys’ past, would be Wynn’s experienced starter. It would also mean that they would have another skilled offensive tackle who is not prone to injury.
It is worth looking at the areas that he has fixed, given how urgent and vigorous they are. Wynn’s flexibility in his position adds value to Dallas and the needs that he fulfills.
Bill Belichick is still moving players one year ahead of schedule or players with greater value elsewhere. It may be worth considering Wynn’s talents and its impact on Dallas.
