    Luke Kuechkly, Patrick Peterson, or JJ Watt. Would take Luke out of all of them.

    Belichek. I know he's not a player but 1 player doesn't make a team. A HC does.

    Easily Calvin Johnson or Adrian peterson if we're going offense. Could you imagine an offense with Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, Terrence Williams, Jason Witten, and Demarco Murray??? I mean who would you cover? Dez and Calvin both require double teams and sometimes even triple, that'd be fun to watch.

    Defensively would obviously be J.J. Watt, he'd instantly turn our d-line into a top notch group.

    Watt is the best choice. 25 years old, complete beast, only owed 2m in 2014 and 7m in 2015. Can tag him for 11m in 2016.

    After Watt, I would take Clowney since he is only 21 years old and under control for little money for the next 5 years(6 if you Franchise him)

    Luke Kuechly or Dontari Poe. I really think we are set on offense.

    If the premise is you add one person to make the team better then a better HC would make do a lot more for this team than any one player.

    Patrick Peterson. I see the wisdom of looking for a sure replacement for Ware on the Dl, but at this point, with the rotation they have in place the Cowboys may have replaced him. I think we know what we have at CB and Peterson would not only be an instant upgrade, but a guy who could lock down the #1 CB spot for the next 5 years easy. And when you have that type of talent at the corner spot, the Safety position get's a whole lot easier, meaning the Cowboys could focus on the Dl and Lb positions through the next several drafts.

    Gerald McCoy might be a better fit in this defense than Watt.

    I really wonder how good he would be without that defensive line in front of him? He runs around quite freely back there. Nevertheless, he is a good player indeed.

    With this offensive line I would take a healthy Adrian Peterson over anyone. And run on first,second and third downs.

    I like Watt but we had the best pass rusher in the league for the last several years and you see where that got us.....our defense sucked regardless of Ware being awesome. It's too hard to count on any 1 player to make a huge difference.

    Now with Calvin Johnson or Adrian Peterson you are bringing in a guy who already has the weapons around him to make a huge difference. Either guy makes our offense scary.

    I know defense wins championships but being realistic, no one player will make us (or anyone) win a title.

    It's got to be JJ Watt on defense and Calvin Johnson on offense. Can't go wrong with either when it comes down to just one.

    Robert Quinn, JJ Watt or Greg Hardy. Basically any young sack artist.
