Is Fletcher Cox the Cowboys man at 14?
Next Thursday evening, the 77th NFL Draft will take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. I just started working again (finally) almost three weeks ago, so the past few weeks have been a blur for me. This is one of my favorite times of the year as a writer and a fan of football, but towards the end of the draft season, I just cannot wait for the real draft to begin. Months of analyzing and breaking down prospects begin to take a toll on your mind, so I know I am thankful that the real thing is almost here.
This has been an interesting offseason leading up to the draft. The Cowboys arguably had one of their most productive offseasons in recent memory. Some holes have been filled, and the front office did a good job of acquiring talent for a reasonable price. However, there are a few needs that still remain.
The center issue was never resolved in free agency. I wouldn't say the team is done addressing the guard position even though they signed two of them. The defensive line still lacks a disruptive five technique. Even with the addition of Brandon Carr, the secondary still has some holes in it. You can never have enough pass rushers, and I consider adding another one a need. I love Raymond Radway, but his inexperience and injury push me in the direction of wanting another wide receiver on the depth chart.
