The cornerbacks for the Dallas Cowboys were arguably the position group that struggled the most in 2020. There's plenty of blame to go around when your pass defense coughs up 3,600 yards and 34 touchdowns.
In terms of rushing, the team gave up the second-most yards in the league, which led them to the drafting of linebacker Micah Parsons in the first round.
The yards allowed by the secondary actually ranked 22nd in the league, but it's a slightly misleading statistic.
Per Pro Football Focus, The defense allowed the second-worst passer rating in the NFL with targets of 10 yards or more.
This led to some personnel changes, including the departure of four-year veteran Chidobe Awuzie and the drafting of Colorado rookie Kelvin Joseph.
Joseph, the 44th overall pick in April's draft, is expected to get significant playing time opposite Trevon Diggs, a promising second-year corner who showed flashes of brilliant potential amidst a general sea of despair in 2020.
