I don't think Dallas is going to be very active in FA. We might pick-up a few guys but I doubt they are big names. We will probably resort to resigning the key guys like McBriar, Colombo, Romo etc.
The two biggest needs I see is G and CB. The two players I see probably being available is Blaylock and Ross from UT (Hook em Horns!).
I think both players would be instant starters. I would probably say G is our bigger need by far.
How about the LB's? What guys do you think we will be targeting?
I think Ross is a great player with a great upside, however, he would not be an instant starter. CB is one of the most demanding positions on the field and most top CB prospects don't fair so well their rookie seasons. I know many people might counter that with a Terence Newman argument, but he was one of the few exceptions to step in as a rookie and play well. Ross had a great senior year, but still has very little experience having only played full time at CB his senior season. Blalock on the other hand could very well step in and start as a rookie.
