Over two months ago, I wrote a piece combing through the roster and assessing where the Cowboys biggest draft needs resided.  If you did not get a chance to read those articles, here they are:

PART TWO – DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS

Given that these were written a full month before free agency and with less than a month before the draft, it seems like a good time to review things and determine what Dallas most focus on to build a strong roster through the draft.  With eleven picks, six of which come in the final round, the Cowboys have a few options.  They can either package a couple of low round picks to move up in a specific round if there is someone they really want or they have the luxury of using six picks in the seventh round as a sort of leg up on the free agent process when it comes to unsigned draftees.

Looking back at the previous projections and factoring in what has been done with some of the free agent moves, here is one man’s list of the five most important positions that Dallas must address in the draft.
