The Dallas Cowboys season brought us a lot of highs and lows this season with it once again coming to a disappointing end.
As the players begin their final meetings with the coaches, VP of player personnel Will McClay and his scouting department are getting ready to once again show why they are one of the best groups of talent evaluators in the NFL. They are going to have their work cut out for them again this season after the Cowboys were able to make it to the divisional round of the playoffs and eventually leaving them with No. 26 pick in this year’s upcoming draft.
With holes to fill on both sides of the football, they are going to need to once again work their magic in order to find players that fit what the Cowboys are looking for in terms of physical attributes and football IQ. Right now it’s way too early to assume they’ve narrowed down what they are looking for in the draft but after the loss to the San Fransisco 49ers, we can assume that they have an understanding of what positions they will need to make improvements via free agency and the draft.
Today let’s take a look at some potential candidates the Cowboys might like enough to use a first-round pick on. Some of these players’ stocks are going to rise and fall during the pre-draft process, so where they could end up at the end of this is still to be determined. In the meantime, let’s just assume these players are all in the range of the Cowboys’ 26th pick.
