    The draft needs that I had in mind for the Cowboys really haven't changed too much. Cornerback, safety, defensive line, outside linebacker, offensive guard and wide receiver are all priorities on my wish list. Running back seems to be one of the deepest positions in the draft, so there are some running backs ranked according to talent instead of need.
    You will notice that the board has extended from 50 to 64. It just made sense to expand the rankings to the first two rounds. With a full two rounds of rankings, you can get a better feel for exactly how I feel about prospects through the 64th pick.

    Making this board is honestly one of the hardest tasks I have ever come across when writing on football topics. When I started my board last year, I truly appreciated the draft community even more. This is not an easy task, the professionals that get paid to do this aren't just throwing names on a board and ranking them, well the good draft analysts don't do that anyway. This experience has made me appreciate the scouts job even more because you have to be an extremely patient and smart person to analyze hundreds of college players for an NFL team.
