The Dallas Cowboys narrowly missed out on the NFC east Division title and the playoffs in 2012, so a solid draft could help them ascend into the postseason in 2013.
The offensive line could use help in pass protection as well as run blocking, as quarterback Tony Romo has shown he’s good enough at scrambling to make up for many deficiencies on the line, but the enigmatic QB can shoulder only so much before he makes a game-costing turnover. Dallas could opt to give Romo another receiving threat with Miles Austin always injured, Jason Witten aging, and Dez Bryant being Dez Bryant.
It’s also worth noting that with Defensive Coordinator Monte Kiffin coming in and installing a new 4-3 defense, the Cowboys may look to draft a true 4-3 defensive lineman or linebacker.
Previous Pick: Steelers- Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
