According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Will Allen and Barry Church are the favorites to start at safety for the Cowboys this season.
Of all the draft picks from the 2013 class, J.J. Wilcox has been impressive. He’s around the ball, whether it’s making an interception or a knockdown. You can tell he’s picked up the defensive scheme well. The favorites to start at safety are Barry Church and Will Allen, but Wilcox has made more plays than Matt Johnson, a draft pick from last year, who didn’t play a snap because of hamstring and back issues. Wilcox has to continue his good work in training camp and the preseason to move up the depth chart.
