As another preseason comes to an end for our Dallas Cowboys football team, and now it time for the Dallas Cowboys front office and coaching staff to shift their focus and make a lot of tough decisions on whom to keep on their final 53 man roster.

Here is my 53-man projection for the 2013 roster. Let's Go...........

 

 

 

Quarterbacks (2)

Starter: Tony Romo

Backup: Kyle Orton

 

I know a lot of Cowboys fans wanted the Cowboys to carry (3) quarterbacks on the roster but with lack of quality depth on the offensive and defensive lines we will only carry two like we did last year. Hopefully Tanney will clear waivers and be added to the practice squad.

 

 

 

Running Backs (4)

Starter: DeMarco Murray

Backups: Lance Dunbar, Phillip Tanner, and Joseph Randle

 

 

 

Tight Ends (4)

Starters: Jason Witten and James Hanna

Backups: Gavin Escobar and Dante Rosario

 

 

 

Wide Receivers (5)

Starters: Dez Bryant and Miles Austin

Backups: Terrence Williams, Dwayne Harris, and Cole Beasley

 

 

 

Offensive Line (10)

Starters: Tyron Smith, Ronald Leary, Travis Frederick, Mackenzy Bernadeau, and Doug Free

Backups: Jermey Parnell, Phil Costa, Nate Livings, David Arkin, and Darrion Weems

 

 

 

Defense

 

 

Defensive Line (9)

Starters: Demarcus Ware, Jason Hatcher, Nick Hayden, and Anthony Spencer
