We inch closer to the NFL Draft, with Round One beginning on Thursday April 25, Round Two and Three on Friday April 26 and the final rounds on Saturday April 27. Last week I provided a breakdown of the Defensive Tackle position and the players available. While I feel the Cowboys have needs at other positions specifically along the offensive line, I feel the best value at number 18 will be at Defensive Tackle. The original plan of my posts was to breakdown the Cowboys Draft positions by where I feel they may Draft, but I have changed the plan to breakdown based on the positions I feel most necessary for the Cowboys to attack in the Draft. I will provide my list of players in order of my position ranking, an overall grade for the prospect, their draft projection and the strengths and weaknesses of the top players available.

The Offensive Line is a huge need for the Cowboys. It is obvious that Doug Free at Right Tackle just cannot hack it and was overpaid enormously. I cannot figure out why he has not been cut by our Owner/GM, but Mr. Jones is known to be loyal, even at a fault, to his players. Doug Free was so useless last year that at the end of the season he was actually put in a platoon situation with Jeremy Parnell. Maybe the Cowboys can move Doug Free inside to the guard position if they plan on keeping him on the roster. If they do decide to move him inside, they will still need to draft an offensive lineman at either position, Tackle, Guard and Center, if not draft all three at some point during this Draft.
