Today brings the last part of last week's chat with the National Football Post's Wes Bunting. Wes talks about defensive linemen here, offering one name who could fall into Dallas' orbit and be a replacement for Anthony Spencer, should the team not re-sign him next spring,. Wes also discusses depth positions, which nicely match up with two of Dallas' bigger offensive needs:
Cowboys Nation: We're a Cowboys site, and we're looking at Cowboys needs. For the longest time, until Tyron Smith declared, the focus was on defensive ends, guys like J.J. Watt and Cameron Jordan. My guess is had Smith stayed in college Watt would have been the guy.
You're mentioned Courtney Upshaw a couple of times, going back to the first chats after the '11 draft. Compare him grade wise and game wise to guys like Watt and Jordan.
