Thursday night football is back!! Football fans everywhere are rejoicing because the NFL Draft is Thursday night and that signifies that football is on its way.  For Dallas Cowboy fans, they take this one of two ways, the beginning of an exciting season or the beginning of a frustrating one.  It all depends on the first selection.  The Cowboy needs are pretty simple, defense.  The Cowboys are going to be a busy team as they have needs pretty much everywhere so they can climb out of the 8-8 wormhole they have been in for the last three seasons.

Breaking it down, Dallas isn’t in bad shape on offense with an offensive lineman, especially after last year’s surprise selection of Travis Fredrick at the center.  He has proved to be a solid asset in the position.  Dallas could use some solid selections to add depth on the offensive line and fullback, which is basically a glorified offensive lineman in the backfield for the Cowboys.  At running back, there is room for improvement.

DeMarco Murray is a 1,500-yard back, but he will never get to that point due to continuous injuries.  After losing Murray and Lance Dunbar to injury, Joseph Randle needs to step it up.  At the wide receiver position, we are in great position with Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Dwayne Harris, and Cole Beasley.  Williams needs to continue to develop to compliment Bryant.  The tight end position could use some shoring up as Witten just turned 32 years old and Gavin Escobar needs some seasoning to prove himself.  As far as quarterback, a QB for the future is in order and as much it pains me to say, Johnny Manziel isn’t the answer.

    Funny you would say the offense is ok and spend the whole draft for identified needs. Dallas will never improve itself if they draft focused on need and let a superior talent go unnoticed. Lee will always be hurt in his current position due to his size and aggression. Lee would be better served as the weak side LB. Without better DTs to take off the constant hits Lee receives he will get injuried. Dallas does need better OGs for the run game and better protection for the QB. If the quality of DL is not there at 16 and the option to trade down and get additional picks is not available, then there has to be an opportunity for a WR, MLB, FS, OG, OT, or a QB value pick.

    B.W. Webb sucks

  • Alfredo Martinez

    Offense is not a finished product… We need a WR and a G in the early rounds… In the defense side of the ball, my boy is Anthony Barr from UCLA.. Amazing speed. (4.4 in 40s) could you imagine the mix of this gay with Marinelli?… if he is off the board, my dark horse is Louis Nix from Notre Dame.. (6-2, 331), another option is Kony Ealy from Mizz (6-4, 273), he can play 3 tech and DE, Willie McClay loves this young rushman…

    • David

      Nix is not a good scheme fit and Ealy at 16 would be a big reach. They need to land Barr, Dix or Pryor. I would rather see Shazier than Nix or Ealy…They could then go DE in the 2nd round.

    This draft is so deep every team in the NFL is going to fill some needs. At the end of the day parity will prevail.

    improve the defensive line and the dbs will be better, easy, cowboys need more help in def line than dbs, the defense was the last in 2013, the offense was in 13 or less, so who you select in the next draft to help
