Current Depth of Cowboys Roster

The Dallas Cowboys can’t afford to trade any of their players. Outside of what it would cost in draft and player capital to move up in the draft, moving what could amount to multiple players for what will only be a single player would be counter productive.

The Cowboys are actually in a place where they need more capable bodies, not where they can afford to use them as amenities.

Needing playmakers all over the field on the offense, the draft is always the perfect place to uncover a gem. This is especially true offensively as the league has not only become more wide open and pass happy, but has started to look more like the college game in most aspects.

This allows younger guys to make more immediate impacts due to familiarity with schemes and the simplicity of systems.

Although the Cowboys signed George Iloka, they still need to add a safety to the back-end of the defense. Needing help all along the defensive front, from edge rushers to interior lineman, they cannot afford to miss on a chance to deepen this roster.

That is especially important in this draft, not only with defensive lineman being a huge need for this team, but also being a huge commodity in this draft.
