Nobody expected the Cowboys to split the offensive and defensive players drafted down the middle. Many assumed it would lean heavily toward the offensive side. That doesn't matter anymore as the Dallas defense came out a lot stronger by the end of the draft and undrafted free agency.
Mazi Smith and DeMarvion Overshown will more than likely immediately impact this defense, while Viliami Fehoko and Eric Scott Jr. will have time to develop behind others. The surprise of this group here is that the Cowboys decided to keep Isaiah Land on the roster along with priority-free agent Tyrus Wheat.
The team could still go shopping for another linebacker and cornerback in free agency or eventually make a trade for a player that isn't going to make another team's roster. Outside of that the Cowboys' defense is pretty much set and got faster, stronger, and younger at certain positions.
