Sleeper – Neville Gallimore
The Dallas defense is sprinkled with rookie talent, but most of them are in-depth roles with a chance to break out eventually. Of those players that will be given an opportunity this season, Neville Gallimore could be one of the largest contributors.
After a down senior campaign at Oklahoma, Gallimore saw his draft stock nearly plummet from receiving first-round consideration to being a third-round draft pick. Regardless, his junior campaign shows his ability to log tackles, having 50, while his senior season was more on the side of big plays with six tackles for loss and four sacks.
The other part of Gallimore being a sleeper this season is his opportunity to get on the field for the Cowboys. The starting defensive tackles for Dallas are Dontari Poe and Gerald McCoy, two veterans who are proven in the league.
However, being veterans they both are candidates to rotate off the field more and have higher injury risks. For that reason, Gallimore could see the field a solid amount this season which could very well turn into sustained production and maybe even free the Cowboys up to move on from one of the veterans and let Gallimore start in the near future.
