    Cornerback is one of the Cowboys' biggest needs entering this draft. With Brandon Carr headed to Baltimore and Morris Claiborne recently joining the Jets, Dallas is thin in its secondary.
    Orlando Scandrick, Nolan Carroll and Anthony Brown currently represent the corner depth.

    The good news: cornerback is regarded by many as the deepest group in this class. Several quality outside corners with good size should be available for the Cowboys in the first few rounds.

    Here are 10 names to keep an eye on at the top of the draft.

    1. Marshon Lattimore


    College: Ohio State

    Height, weight: 6-0, 193

    Notable: Many consider him to be this class's No. 1 corner. He intercepted four passes and broke up nine last season for the Buckeyes.

    Scout's take: "Lattimore has average size but possesses elite foot quickness, agility, and awareness. ... I love the way he competes. He has all of the tools to develop into a No. 1 cornerback at the next level." -- Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com

    2. Marlon Humphrey


    College: Alabama

    Height, weight: 6-0, 197

    Notable: Started the last two seasons for Crimson Tide teams that played in consecutive national championship games. In 19 games he intercepted five passes and broke up 13.

    Scout's take: "Humphrey possesses the size and speed scouts are looking for on the outside and he appears to be just scratching the surface of his potential. His lack of ideal fluidity leaves him vulnerable to smaller, quicker receivers, however, and he has been complemented by a terrific pass rush over his career." -- Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

    3. Fabian Moreau


    College: UCLA

    Height, weight: 6-0, 206

    Notable: A former running back turned defensive back, Moreau had eight pass breakups and two interceptions last season. Foot injury caused him to miss most of the 2015 season.

    Scout's take: "I don't think we're talking about him enough. He ran 4.35 in the 40. How about 38" vert, 11'4" broad. His game tape is really good. And then you get out here in the drill section, and he was just smooth. Everything's under control. He catches the football. I think Fabian Moreau is gonna be a tremendous value for some team." -- Mike Mayock, NFL.com

    4. Teez Tabor


    College: Florida

    Height, weight: 6-0, 199

    Notable: A Washington D.C. native who said at the draft that he'd love to play for Jerry Jones. Tabor had seven interceptions over the last two seasons.

    Scout's take: "Tabor has excellent size for the position and plays relaxed in coverage, trusting his skills and feel for the game. He is patient and balanced in press with quick footwork to mirror and ride routes vertically and has the ballskills to force quarterbacks to think twice before challenging him." -- Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

    5. Sidney Jones


    College: Washington

    Height, weight: 6-0, 186

    Notable: Jones was regarded by many as a first-round pick, but an Achilles injury during Washington's Pro Day could force him to miss his entire rookie season. The Cowboys have shown they are willing to overlook a serious injury if the upside is there.

    Scout's take: "I think he picked up all of (Marcus) Peters' good traits as a player without the personality defects. He marries that great FBI (football intelligence) with an explosive close-out and that will win in the pros just like it wins in college. You will always wish he was 198 pounds, but he won't be." -- NFC East regional scout via NFL.com
