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.
