Dallas Cowboys Draft Preview; NFL Schedule Released
With the NFL Draft set to begin on April 28, let’s take a look at this year’s Dallas Cowboys Draft Preview.
The Dallas Cowboys have the 4th pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. They have some minor concerns at a few different positions, with some major concerns at others. The Cowboys’ biggest need is undoubtedly at Cornerback. Their current secondary has battled issues with injuries, free agency, and contracts coming due.
Should the Cowboys choose to focus more on a top pass-rusher however, it may alleviate the urgency to fill the CB spots at this juncture. They may be able to wait on that.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys have already invested a lot of time and money building up their offensive line in recent years. That said, they could still use a RB like they had in DeMarco Murray, who can light up defenses by running behind such a line.
The quarterback position has also become a big concern suddenly for the Cowboys. Romo leaving with a season-ending injury last year brought the spotlight on the position and raised a lot of questions. an Romo have longevity, remain healthy, or sustain the hits he’s all too often taken? Many would say the answer to that is a big fat NO.
So, with the draft providing a few good prospects at the QB spot, do the Cowboys take advantage of their draft position and snag one? Perhaps they should, as no one knows if and when they’ll be in this position to grab another one.
Cowboys’ Top Prospects:
CB – Jalen Ramsey (Florida State), Vernon Hargreaves (Florida)
QB – Jared Goff (Cal), Carson Wentz (North Dakota State), Paxton Lynch (Memphis)
RB – Ezekiel Elliott (Ohio State), Derrick Henry (Alabama)
DT – Andrew Billings (Baylor), A’Shawn Robinson (Alabama)
