IRVING, Texas Ė Last week the Cowboys coaches and front office met to discuss the personnel on the roster and players who could leave, such as Anthony Spencer
. This week the Cowboys head to the NFL scouting combine to begin in earnest the search for new players.
The Cowboys will get the chance to meet officially with 60 players during interviews that last 15 minutes apiece. They will hold informal discussions with other players, as well.
The two most important parts of the combine are the interviews and the medical information, with all of the players taking physicals.
The most talked about part of the combine -- and often the most overrated -- will be the workouts. Drills donít really mean the guy can play (or canít play) on Sundays.
The Cowboys' needs are pretty clear: Offensive and defensive line, safety, linebacker, cornerback (
), tight end and wide receiver.
