This Draft is very deep with players along the Offensive Line. The 2013 class is very top heavy with five players along the offensive line in my Top 15 prospects overall, four players in the Top Ten, and three players in the Top Five. Because the Cowboys need players at every offensive line position, instead of breaking them down by position, I have decided to lump all of them together and put them in order based on their value as a prospect rather than split up by position. This will provide an ability to track the players as they come off the board during the Draft process.
