Cowboys finally deep at safety, but will they need any of these top 2025 prospects?

Elite safeties are a rare commodity, and the 2024 NFL draft underscored this scarcity. As teams scoured the draft board for defensive gems, the limited availability of top-tier prospects became evident. Unfortunately the talent pool at the position should remain similar for the 2025 draft class.

The current safety position for the Dallas Cowboys appears stable, but with concerns over its long-term prospects. The starting safeties, Malik Hooker and Donovan Wilson, face potential contract outs after the upcoming 2024 season. While the safety depth, Juanyeh Thomas, Israel Mukuamu, and Markquese Bell, has demonstrated reliability, uncertainties persist, particularly regarding Bell’s position following a positional shift to linebacker for 2023.

These players also lack long-term contractual commitments, however. Additionally, Julius Wood and Emany Johnson are poised to bolster the safety group as undrafted free agents heading into training camp.

The Cowboys are set to have plenty of cap space for the 2025 offseason, but that space could quickly dissipate with extensions of star players like Dak Prescott, Micah Parsons and CeeDee Lamb. Securing the future of the safety position may come down to the team’s draft and develop philosophy. The Cowboys will certainly have a scouts eye on the safety position during the upcoming college football season.
