Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs is coming off a season where he made first-team All-Pro. His eleven 11 were the most in Cowboys franchise history since 1981 when Everson Walls also had 11. But lost in Diggs’ big season was the abundance of chunk plays he allowed en route to allowing over 1,000 yards receiving.

In fact, the duo of Diggs and teammate Micah Parsons became the first to have double-digit interceptions and sacks since the Chargers Antonio Cromartie and Shawn Merriman in 2007.

Fast forward to 2022 training camp, and Diggs has been on the receiving end of many big plays by Cowboy receivers.

Now it’s one thing to get burned by Cee Dee Lamb, a former first-round pick, who’s slated to occupy the team’s No. 1 receiver role now with Amari Cooper in Cleveland. But who’s Simi Fehoko, and why is he running by a first-team All-Pro player with ease?

While it’s only training camp, it should still concern defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and head coach Mike McCarthy. They want to bring pressure, and that means having Diggs on an island in man-to-man coverage. But if he’s going to be beaten this easily come the regular season, he’s going to need some safety help over the top.

The constant highlights caused Diggs to delete his Twitter account.

 

Cowboys Insider Calvin Watkins Says Diggs Is Having A Good Camp

Someone who sees much more than clickbait highlights is Dallas Morning News Cowboys beat reporter Calvin Watkins, who tweeted the following about Diggs:

“Lot of hate on these Twitter streets late yesterday after watching Trevon Diggs get beat a few times. It happens. He’s having a good camp,” Watkins assessed. 

Not sure if Watkins is trying to perform damage control for Diggs, but he’s got a front-row seat to the daily action out in Oxnard, California, home of the team’s training camp for the 16th time. In all they’ve traveled west for 43 years for training camp.

Teammate Micah Parsons Believes Diggs Was Best Defensive Player In The League In 2021

In a July interview with USA Today, Parsons, the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year, called it disrespectful that Diggs wasn’t considered a top-five corner or better yet the best in the league. Parsons even referred to Diggs as the best defensive player in the league in 2021.

“We’ve seen 20 sacks before. But in this era we’ve never seen anyone reach 10-plus interceptions,” Parsons said. “So it’s disrespectful to me, because I think he deserves all the credit in the world and deserves to be named a top-five corner if not the best corner in the league.”

It’s admirable that Parsons is speaking on behalf of his teammate, but Diggs is nowhere near the league’s best corner in a league that passes it roughly 60 percent of the time. So with that being said, Diggs’ high number of thefts need to be taken into context. Diggs and Parsons are a rising duo, but they aren’t in the same stratosphere as Rams superstars Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey as MP suggested.

This shouldn’t make Diggs delete his account though. That’s an odd response to failure. He needs to improve his cover skills. Lock down these no-name guys in camp and shut everyone up. That’s what a first-team All-Pro does. He should want all the smoke.
