    What's our priority in the first next year?

    WR? My best bet

    DT? We don't seem to value it with a first rounder

    RT? This is my next bet, it feels like when Joseph Randle was handed the starting spot. Just feels like a lot of hope that things work great without really knowing.

    TE? Witten, gronk, graham, sharp, gates. Not a first rounder amongst them.

    OLB? My third choice, needs to be able to play SLB but hopefully is Lee's eventual replacement at WLB

    The goal is to finish making the defense championship material. By the time the 2017 season is over it will be clear which direction that first pick should go. The problem is the best player available probably won't be at that specific position. So unlike this year picking which direction the Cowboys will go will be sigificantly harder.

    Another suspect year at OL? When you look around at the various mocks and lists it seems McGlinchey is the only one who consistently shows up in Top 25 lists.

    If Jaylon Smith doesn't bounce back, Malik Jefferson becomes my #1 hope for next year.

    Derwin James, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Clelin Frerrell, and Harold Landry would all be wonderful additions to our defense.

    It will be hard getting a top notch player when you picking 32 in every rd. Hopefully one falls to us.

    You've been warned.

    Meh think of it this way. The Cowboys would get to pick before any other team in the next round.

    I want nothing to do with that Notre Dame OT. That guy will be a bust,he is terrible. He has 2 left feet and he couldn't walk and chew bubble gum at the same time.

    another top rated qb from usc. so far the past five qbs from usc have not made much a long term impact in the nfl.

    Darnold has more to offer physically than Sanchez, Barkley and Kessler though.

    Mel is obviously way too consumed with Dessert.
