Cowboys are stacked at starting linebackers, but depth will always get tested at some point

Cowboys are stacked at starting linebackers, but depth will always get tested at some point

Linebacker depth is always key to this defenses success. For years, the Cowboys lack of overall talent at linebacker has always come back to bite them at some point in a season. Up until the Cowboys spent valuable draft resources on both Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch, the Cowboys defense went as far as Sean Lee (and his health) was able to take them.
