9. Goodbye to a Veteran Safety?: When this defense lines up against the New York Giants on Sept. 8, I think Xavier Woods and Jeff Heath are going to be the starters. The question now becomes, who are the backups? Kavon Frazier, Darian Thompson and Jameill Showers are the holdovers from last season. Frazier is a core special teamer, but he has yet to take that next step in the secondary. Thompson showed range and the talent to make plays during the OTAs, while Showers will be a long shot to make the squad and is out of practice squad eligibility. The new additions are George Iloka and rookie Donovan Wilson. Iloka is a savvy veteran who is best around the line of scrimmage, while Wilson has flashed some playmaking ability when he has received the chance. This is another one of those positions at which the Cowboys could go long. It would be surprising to see them carry five safeties, but they might keep a guy like Wilson on the roster to allow him to develop. If they decide to just carry four then Woods, Heath, Frazier and Thompson would be my guess, unless they wanted to switch out Frazier or Thompson for Wilson.
