David Helman of expects first-round LB Leighton Vander Esch to play on the weak side.
Helman sees that as the best fit for Vander Esch given his expertise in pass coverage. If Vander Esch does start on the weak side, the Cowboys would likely roll with veteran Sean Lee at middle linebacker with Jaylon Smith helping out on the strong side.
