The Cowboys’ 53 man roster looks heavily skewed toward the defense once the final cuts are made in the next couple of weeks. Dallas boasts a lot of depth with a young star crew, so spots aren’t guaranteed for many players who could play in the league. Trysten Hill is a former second round pick from the previous era and is one of the roster bubble’s defensive tackles.
He made an incredible play against the Chargers, whether he was making plays for his staff or catching another’s attention. Hill made the ultimate trio right after KaVontae Torpin had scored his second return touchdown TD in the first half. Hill sacked the quarterback and took the ball from Turpin to give the Cowboys the ball back.
The Cowboys led league with 26 INTs last year. But Dan Quinn wants his guys to force far more fumbles than last year’s 8.

Hill was drafted by the team in 2019, when they traded a first round pick for WR Amari cooper. Although injuries have impeded his progress, he has shown glimpses that he might one day emerge. He is competing against players like Carlos Watkins, rookie John Ridgeway and Neville Gallimore to finish behind Osa Odighizuwa and Quinton Bohanna in the interior of DL.
Dallas scored on the drive and led by 19 points at halftime against Denver. Dallas is up 29-10 after a disappointing performance against Denver last week.
