The Dallas Cowboys have a number of questions along the defensive line, but rookie Marshawn Kneeland could be the person who brings everything together.

The Cowboys Wire takes a look at how the second-round pick out of Western Michigan could be the man to tie up any loose ends along the line.

Zimmer also has a knack for using gap-versatile players to their best advantages. Back with the Vikings, he had pass-rusher D.J. Wonnum, selected in the fourth round of the 2020 draft out of South Carolina. Like Kneeland, Wonnum is a hybrid-built player (6-foot-5, 258 pounds) who could win from more than one alignment, and had all kinds of ways of getting it done. In 2021, Zimmer’s last season, Wonnum had a career-high 42 total pressures, and when you look at the two players and their primary attributes, it’s easy to make the connection, giving us some idea of how Kneeland might be deployed.
