The Cowboys interesting coaching changes are now in the rear-view mirror. What else is there to look forward to now? There’s no Super Bowl for Cowboys fans, and the Pro Bowl has come and gone. Logically, the next place to look is the roster period.

There’s still a lot that can take place between now and the March 11 kickoff of Free agency, so it’s hard to analyze and predict what Dallas might do during that period, but there are a great deal of college players who are going to be eligible to be drafted May 8-10.

The question still remains – does Dallas need to add depth or another starter-caliber running back, or are they set for a while with the young backs on the roster?

The best way to come to a conclusion is to look at what Dallas has, what is potentially available, and then draw a conclusion. We’ll review the work by each of the Cowboys backs from 2013 in this week’s post, and next week we’ll look at potential fits that may come through the NFL draft.

    No they should not for the simple reason of their last hiring of linehan. They will continue to be a pass happy offense. I personally would rather them take an offensive lineman with that 4th or 5th that they would use for a rb.

    Sure! Take two. And while you’re busy wasting draft choices, get a couple more TE’s too. Forget both sides of the line or the defensive secondary. Nobody pays any attention to them anyway.

      what are you going to say if murray gets injured next year? we can definitely use DAT in later rounds or tre mason a bruising back who reminds of me of ray rice. i still prefer dt/de/cb-s/lb combo followed by qb and then more dt/s/wr run.
