The Dallas Cowboys will have the 16th pick in the 2014 NFL draft, after they won the coin toss with the Baltimore Ravens.  So many options the Cowboys could go with their first-round pick, but most people think it will be a defensive position that will be addressed. I mean if you come into a draft with the 32nd ranked defense in the league and you pick an offensive position with your first pick, fans might just riot. But, what position will they address? Here are my top-5 scenarios for the Cowboys’ first pick in the draft!

Scenario #1: Pick a safety:

The Cowboys have a lot of holes at the defensive line, but they really have a chance here to fix the safety position that has been haunting them since former Cowboys safety Darren Woodson retired.  Last year they tried to address the position with Cowboys safety J.J. Wilcox, but he lost his starting job to Jeff Heath. Outside of Barry Church, the safety position is very weak. This year, if the projections stay the same, the Cowboys have a chance to get two play-makers in the first –round.  While it would still be an awesome pick getting Alabama’s safety HaHa Clinton-Dix, I think that the Louisville safety Calvin Pryor is the better overall pick. Pryor has better coverage skills and can play just as good in zone as he does in man. He also has aggressiveness in his style of play, something that the secondary desperately needs. Pryor and Church would make a great pair back there for the Dallas defense.

    trade down with cleveland 26 pick, add a pick and still have the opportunity to select a good defensive line guy

    Wait a minute. This is all about defense. Where’s the O line in this conversation?

    Is it just me or does Jones’ fashion choice of a black ball cap with a black star, rather than silver, smack of the Darth Vader look?

    One key is what the Bears do at 14. They also are desperate for D help. For Cowboys definitely not a CB. Have to fix DL to help DBs. If the right DT is there, then take him. To much of a need and to risky to wait. Stating that the draft is deep is meaningless. Talent drops considerably after the first 2 or 3 rounds. Trading back to mid 20′s and getting another 2nd round pick would be good, but absolutely don’t trade out of the first round.
