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.
