All eyes are on the Dallas Cowboys and what they do with the No. 26 overall pick in the NFL Draft. The good news is Dallas already boasts one of the best rosters in the league. Assuming they add a few more marquee players in the draft, this will be a Super Bowl or bust season for Mike McCarthy’s squad.

Of course, no roster is perfect at this stage of the offseason. 

The Cowboys are no different. While they fortified areas of need by trading for Stephon Gilmore and Brandin Cooks, there are legitimate concerns about the depth, or lack thereof, at linebacker and the offensive and defensive lines, specifically the interior. 

With that, here’s a quick look at Dallas’ depth chart before the 2023 draft. As always, multiple players will move down in the pecking order once the draft wraps on April 29, but here’s where things stand as of this writing.

There shouldn’t be any surprises on offense, though new players could enter the picture at quarterback, receiver, running back, tight end and offensive guard with the Cowboys expected to address at least some of those positions during the draft, seemingly with a focus on tight end and running back.
