Mailbag: Who Is The Most Versatile Player?




Who is the biggest rival outside of the division? The team that has been the biggest nemesis to the Cowboys in recent years.

Bryan: I don't even think it's even close -- the Green Bay Packers. Whether it's been the regular season or playoff games, Aaron Rodgers has found ways to defeat the Cowboys in the most gut-wrenching fashion. Those games have stuck with fans longer than any other defeats the Cowboys have suffered. 

David: Green Bay is the obvious answer, but I'm going to throw out the Falcons, too. Atlanta has drilled the Cowboys the last three times they've played – including a beating that completely altered the 2017 season. The Falcons are on the schedule again in 2018, and it will likely once again have playoff implications.



From Jeff Heath kicking field goals, Byron Jones playing all over the secondary, to Tyrone Crawford's versatility on the line, which player has the most versatility and position flex?

Bryan: At one time I would have said Keith Smith due to all the things he did on offense, defense and special teams. I've seen Tavon Austin play running back, wide receiver and return kicks in a game, so he might be the new Keith Smith on the roster. 

David: Hopefully you never have to see him do it, but I'm going to say Zack Martin. We know he's an All-Pro guard, and he has also worked at times as an emergency center in practice. He was an All-American tackle at Notre Dame, and I bet he could handle the job if the Cowboys needed to move him out there for some reason. I don't think it's a stretch to say Martin could play all five spots on the offensive line – and play them well.
