Let's examine the Cowboys' defensive reshuffle....There will be 4 new starters on defense at this point.
DE, Marcus Spears
NT, Jay Ratliff
DE, Igor Olshansky (replaces Chris Canty)
OLB, DeMarcus Ware
OLB, Greg Ellis/Anthony Spencer
ILB, Bradie James
ILB, Keith Brooking (replaces Zach Thomas)
CB, Terence Newman
CB, Mike Jenkins (replaces Anthony Henry)
FS, Orlando Scandrick??
SS, Ken Hamlin
* Scandrick (5-foot-10, 192 pounds) could be sliding from CB to FS after an impressive rookie season. He's a fearless player with solid coverage skills and extreme confidence but will need more strength and bulk in that role on the base defense.
