RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Escobar, Dallas' second-round pick in last year's draft, is the heir-apparent to aging veteran Jason Witten, but he struggled to see the field much in 2013 (only appearing in 11.4 offensive snaps per game) due to blocking deficiencies. Still, Escobar showed flashes of his prominent receiving chops, including a highlight-reel touchdown catch in Week 17. Early reports out of Dallas indicate that Escobar has taken it upon himself to get stronger and become a more complete player, but as long as Witten remains a Cowboy, Escobar will have to wait his turn.

2013

Second round pick Escobar will compete for snaps with James Hanna in two-tight end sets as a rookie, but long term he could be the heir apparent to Jason Witten.
