Other than safety, the defensive line, and linebackers, where should Dallas look in the draft? I know I only looked at the defensive side of the ball, but there is a good reason for that. Our offense wasn’t the problem this past season.
My next look would be at a speedy wide receiver or a blocking tight end. The re-signing of wide receiver Randall Cobb would mean less of a need for a speedy wideout, but if he leaves then that becomes more of a need.
Wide receiver Tavon Austin has not had much of a role in Dallas’ offense and unfortunately, I don’t see him having much this upcoming season. Somewhere between the third to the fifth round, Dallas should be able to find someone who can slide in.
A blocking tight end would fill in the void of tight end Jason Witten if he leaves. He did not do much as far as production, but he had a key leadership role with the team. Either way, it wouldn’t be bad to have a young tight end develop under Witten.
A cornerback can be looked at, although Dallas has a good group of young guys. A possible departure of cornerback Byron Jones would mean their number one corner is gone, and the lineup will have to shift up.
A kick returner could be useful if Dallas can find one in the middle of the draft. Current returner Tony Pollard hasn’t looked as good at returning kicks as he is at rushing the ball.
Overall, the three main positions of need are a safety, a linebacker, and a defensive lineman. The other positions could maybe use some depth, but those three could use an impact player.
