2. Jordan Davis, Defensive Tackle, Georgia

Dallas needs help on the defensive line as they gave up 115.9 rushing yards per game this year and 169 yards to the 49ers in the playoffs. In an otherwise shining defense, stopping the run was a very sore spot. Davis is a beast inside that will immediately become the Cowboys’ best defensive tackle.

Davis is 6’6,” 340lbs, and is great at stopping the run. Being that large makes him almost impossible to move and allows him to eat up blockers. He is a perfect fit for the Cowboys and exactly what they need.

Davis is not known for his ability to rush the passer, but he can overpower some offensive lineman and help close the pocket. He lines up as a 1-technique (over the center) or 3-technique (between the center and guard) and that is exactly where Dallas needs assistance.

Adding Davis to Osa Odighizuwa would give the Cowboys a formidable defensive front for years to come.
