RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Wilcox returns as the starting free safety for the Cowboys after recording 74 tackles and three INTs in 16 games last season
Wilcox won a starting safety job as a rookie in training camp last season, but the death of his mother and a knee injury limited him to just five starts in 2013. He's got the athleticism and nose for the ball to put up useful IDP numbers if he stays on the field for a full schedule, but Wilcox isn't worth taking a flier on right out of the gate.
The Georgia Southern product is a recent convert from running back, but he already looks like a natural at safety. While the Cowboys likes Barry Church and Matt Johnson at safety, the two are question marks due to Achilles' tendon and hamstring issues, respectively, not to mention a complete lack of a track record in both cases. Wilcox is a sleeper IDP investment as a potential Week 1 starter.
