Ranking the Cowboys at season's end

The Cowboys finished 8-8 and missed the postseason for the second consecutive season. After a season like that, with five fourth-quarter leads blown, struggles in the secondary and injuries to key starters, roster changes are expected.

With that, we rank the 53-man roster heading into the offseason. (The rankings are based on 2011 performance and expectations and future potential. Players must have played a minimum of five games and currently be on the team to be ranked.)
