Cowboys Draft Breakdown – Safeties

The NFL Draft begins Thursday with Round one and continues until all 7 rounds are finished by Saturday evening. In the past two weeks I have broken down the Defensive Tackle position and the Offensive Linemen available for the Cowboys in the 2013 Draft Class. The third position the Cowboys have to look at in this Draft is Safety. In the new “Tampa 2″ Scheme the Safety position is the most important position in the secondary because they are responsible for covering players down the field, allowing the underneath coverage to make plays on the ball. The players have to be agile enough to cover half of the field and be able to change directions quickly to stop teams from making big plays in the passing game.

The Cowboys opened up the 2013 offseason by cutting starter Gerald Sensabaugh. This move was not only a monetary move, but Sensabaugh did not fit in the new system, creating the hole in the Cowboys’ roster. They will have to address this position at some point during the weekend, and based on their pick in the middle of the rounds and the depth at the position in the Draft Class somewhere in the first four rounds expect them to take a Safety.
