It is fair to say that the Dallas Cowboys had a disappointing season in 2020. The team, which headed into the year with legitimate postseason aspirations, was plagued with injuries and inconsistent play and ended up missing the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

The organization headed into the offseason with a plethora of needs that were heavily skewed towards the defensive side of the ball. After a quiet start to the free agency period, the Cowboys have made a handful of (somewhat) significant moves to attempt to address these needs.

These moves including signing safety Damonatae Kazee, who led the league in interceptions with seven back in 2018, as well as safety Keanu Neal, who is expected to mostly play weakside linebacker for the team next season. Even with these moves, and some other less significant signings, Dallas still has several needs it should try to address in the remainder of the offseason.

Obviously, the team could attempt to address the rest of its needs (starting cornerback, offensive line depth, defensive line, etc.) during the remainder of free agency. However, with most of the best free agents already signed and the organization somewhat cash strapped it appears the NFL Draft will likely be the best chance for America’s Team to address these needs.

Fortunately, the Dallas Cowboys have a whopping 10 picks in the upcoming draft, starting with the tenth overall pick. With much of the attention (understandably) going towards who the Cowboys will pick at ten, here is a list of five-day-three prospects the organization should keep in mind.
