5. Jerry Jones wants fireworks

Don’t forget, the Dallas Cowboys paid Dak Prescott. He is now the future, the sole provider and leader to the next championship.

Guess what? Jerry Jones is going to surround his investment with more investments. Does this mean draft Kyle Pitts? No. No, I don’t think so.

But just because the Cowboys have wide receiver CeeDee Lamb in the wings, I still see the owner and general manager vouching for the offense. He spent top coin on Prescott, now he has to live up to the marriage.

For better or worse, regardless of your opinion, the Cowboys are heavily invested in the offense. Obviously. And what better way to improve the machinery than to update it via the NFL Draft?

Blockers, please?

The offensive line is shaky. With Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, and La’el Collins missing several games due to injuries, I’d imagine the Cowboys declaring a need to support their megastars. Because let’s face it: These ‘Boys aren’t going to SoFi Stadium with an ailing offensive line.

Let’s not forget about a declining Ezekiel Elliott. The running back is entering the 2021 season on a downward trend. So to keep Prescott upright and the running lanes open, the Cowboys are sure to draft for protection on the front line.

The DNA of America’s Team

Clearly, improving the offensive line makes sense to me. But here is where my concern sits. Jones is all about that spectacle. Now, I still believe that the Kyle Pitts noise is just that — noise. Instead of drafting for defense, will Jones and staff suggest extra offensive tools?

If the mindset isn’t on fixing the defense, at the very least, the Cowboys can put on a show and reap in ticket sales. Hey, let’s make Big D the biggest show on the planet! Forget about winning when you can draft for touchdowns and stats.
