Draft-rankings provided by CBS; picking players within 3 spots above or 10 spots below; no more. Restructures:Romo, Ware(with pay cut of about 3m this year and next), Lee --~6m in cap space March 11th. June 1st cut: Miles adds 5.5m to cap space. I as Dallas refuse to chase anyone in free agency. --this team isn't one player away. I believe they will sit tight and and wait for the draft first. If they chase free agents it will likely be under a new coach in 2015 imho. Going to posit they bring Spencer back. Staff has always loved the player and he is too hurt to chase riches. Incentive-laden 1 year deal that starts at vet minimum. Incentives are very easy to add (and very cap friendly) since he played less than 2 full games last year. I 'think' they can do a reverse of last year and get Spencer back on the field by week 2 or 3 as a back up SDE. Draft: Rd 1: Aaron Donald --Donald is a day 1 starter at 3T. His size is WAYYY overblown. This defense relies on quick twitch guys at DL and Donald is that in spades. Rd 2: Lamarcus Joyner --Small but huge playing making safety. A lot like JJ Wilcox but knows how to actually play the position. Can be the nickel cover guy if Scandrick plays outside once you release Carr in a year or so. Rd 3: Jeremiah Attaochu --speed rusher/WDE back up. Potential to grow into starter status. Rd 4: Bruce Ellington --WR not a huge need but a great value here. Essentially a better Beasley here. Very strong though not very tall. Love ex Point Guards because they know how to maximize quickness to get open. Rd 5: George Uko --One of my sleepers and late round pet cats. Explosive guy who can play 3T and SDE. Comes from a rotation system and probably best there as a back up in NFL. Rd 6: we will have a pick here somehow, team won't go 70 or so picks between players with all the 7th round ammo they'll have after comps are announced.... Denicos Allen--Telvin Smith type player who you can afford to wait on this late in the draft. Special teamer and nickel backer year 1. Rd 7: a) Aaron Colvin --value pick with big upside. future pick. b) Trey Millard --Not an OU fan but the back to back 7th here are extreme value. Milliard a far better player than any FB we've had. Can catch and can run. Plays out of backfield comfortable which our TEs have struggled with. c) Spencer Long --another injury special. Long is type of guy Garrett loves. Checks all the boxes and can be developed as top interior back up. UDFA targets: OL -- at least two OTs DL --A couple 1T guys WR --always add one of these QB --should be appealing as we have a roster spot begging to be had and the number 2 job is readily available in short order. RB --at least two guys here LB --a couple here. Projected Depth Chart QB: Romo, Orton, UDFA RB: Murray, Randle, Dunbar FB: Millard TE: Witten, Escobar, Hanna WR: Dez, TWill, Benford/Harris Slot: Beasley, Ellington, Harris OT: Tyron, Free, Parnell, Weems OG: Bern, Leary, Long OC: TFred, Bern WDE: Ware, Attaochu 1T: Hayden, Kearse 3T: Donald, Bass, Uko SDE: Crawford, Selvie WLB: Holloman, Carter, Allen MLB: Lee, Carter SLB: Durant, Wilber LCB: Carr, Mo, Scandrick RCB: Mo, Scandrick, Moore Nickel CB: Scandrick, Joyner, Webb FS: Joyner, Heath SS: Church, Wilcox Punter: UDFA or FA Kicker: Bailey Returners: Harris, Dunbar, Ellington Overall thoughts: This isn't a title team but it is younger and salary cap flexibility is at a decade long high. It is a reasonably deep roster by recent standards. Money is there for a DL or OL if something happens in camp to a projected starter. I have Brian Waters and Marcus Spears numbers if I need a big body. Nothing about the above is at all sexy but it does strike me as the types of off-seasons winning football teams have. Questions entering Camp with this group: Does Orton retire? If he does Dallas needs to sign a veteran free agent. LB: Dallas has to figure out how to best employ it's LBs. They have quality bodies but the 4-3 is new to many of them and getting some wear and tear off Sean Lee's body a major goal. Bounceback years? Dallas needs Mo and Bruce Carter to show up. Add Crawford to that group and that's a lot of young, highly drafted talent they need to come through.
