No. 2 LB DeMarvion Overlooked

Left guard Tyler Smith, center fielder Jake Ferguson and cornerback DaRon Bland were among the Cowboys players who had breakout performances in 2023. Who’s next? We count down five potential candidates.

2. DeMarvion overdone

Position: Defender.

Project class: Third round, 2023.

Season 2023: I couldn’t play for a whole year due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Perspectives: How impressive was Overshown as a rookie before suffering a season-ending knee injury in the first quarter of the second preseason game? The former Texas standout hasn’t practiced since, yet the Cowboys have no problem projecting him as their starting linebacker for Will in 2024 despite having a new coordinator.

Cowboys defensive end DeMarvion discounted ahead of schedule as he recovers from torn ACL: ‘Looks great’

Overshown has been ahead of his rehabilitation schedule for months and is expected to hit the ground running in Oxnard, Calif. His athleticism and vocal leadership were absent last year. It’s worth noting that the success of any Dallas linebacker is at least partially determined by the defensive line, whose interior is questionable entering camp.
