Neville Gallimore, DL: Make it hard for the staff to keep him off the field

While he was at Oklahoma, Neville Gallimore was a big-time interior pass rusher and one of his main weapons was his all-out effort on every snap.

Over the past two seasons, Gallimore was excellent, racking up seven sacks and four forced fumbles along with 79 total tackles.

The Cowboys had to say goodbye to the talented but oft-injured Maliek Collins in 2020 and Gallimore is a similar type of player just in terms of being a smaller defensive lineman who excels in the pass rush department with high effort, quickness, and a nose for the QB.

I think a reasonable expectation for Gallimore in his rookie season is definitely that he will see the field behind Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe, but also that the Cowboys could have a hard time keeping him off the field.

Poe hasn’t exactly been great in the past few seasons since leaving Kansas City, and Gallimore may be more valuable in passing situations.
