The Dallas Cowboys may not have a first round pick in the 2009 draft, but they still will be busy. The Cowboys have 11 picks in the draft, including three 5th round picks and two 4th, 6th and 7th round picks. Not anything to get really pumped over, but we’ve seen some stars come out of the last pickings.
With that said, the needs of the Cowboys, according to sports pundits, runs the gamut. From wide receiver to offensive line, it seems like everyone has their own opinion of who and what positions the Cowboys need.
We know the Cowboys need depth. So, the No. 51 pick ought to be a safety, the best left in the draft. The remaining picks could add depth to the offensive line, receiver corp, and defensive line. The Cowboys also should strongly consider trading Bobby Carpenter, Anthony Spencer or Greg Ellis. Ellis and Spencer could move the Cowboys into the first round, and if that happens, they may want to eye a top receiver and give it a go. But I do think safety is the key need for the Cowboys.
The secondary also has some holes with safeties Roy Williams and Keith Davis gone, along with cornerbacks Anthony Henry and Adam Pacman Jones.
