    1 DT - I really think RAT is done but we need his replacement
    2 DE - Spencer ? is he gone - Ware not getting any younger

    Stephon Tuitt*, DE, Notre Dame Height: 6-6. Weight: 303 - top 25

    Jackson Jeffcoat*, DE, Texas Height: 6-5. Weight: 245 - 2-4

    Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina Height: 6-6. Weight: 265 - 3-4


    3 OG - depends on what happens this year - if we can not get guard play this year

    Xavier Su'a-Filo**, G, UCLA Height: 6-5. Weight: 315 - 1-2

    Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State Height: 6-4. Weight: 320 - 1-3.

    Tre Jackson*, G, Florida State Height: 6-4. Weight: 327 - 2-3

    Defensive Line and Interior OL...exactly like last year.

    We have no choice but to go D Line this next draft. Ware, Ratliff, Hatcher, and Spencer are all north of 30... Spencer and Hatcher are free agents..Ware's and Ratliff's salary cap hits double. Jerry might try to sell fans on a D Line of Crawford, Lissemore, Bass, and Ware but it would be disastrous.

    DL will be the top priority. The interior OL may be developing some depth based on early training camp results. OT may actually be a bigger need. It's also probably about time to draft a QB as well.

    The trenches should be the priority as usual. They may not go in that direction, but it is a constant weakness year after year. It will continue to be the downfall of this team until it is addressed properly.

    Can you say trenches? As bad as the D Line needs addressing, I think they end taking another OT high up again.

    Would be nice to see and extremely beneficial to have a loaded trenches draft.

    I think we need 2 new DL in the first 3 picks in the next draft.

    After that it is hard to say. A lot will depend on how much progression we see out of some of the young interior OL we have: Killer, Arkin, Costa, Leary and TFred will hopefully show us they have us covered on the interior. It still wouldn't hurt to add another guy from the mid-rounds even if they are all developing well so long as there is value there. I still have hopes that Mack might make a big jump in play based on his improvement in the second half of the season.

    After those two areas I would put WR next again depending on how much some of the kids show as Miles may not be with us much longer. If TWill shows us he is the #2 of the future this year then we probably don't have a huge need but it'd be nice to have another big guy in the mix.

    We will take the best pass rusher on the board whether its a DE or DT.

    Its early but I would guess picking a OG and DT somewhere in the first three rounds would be a solid idea.

    Like most here, I think D-line first and formost. A guard/tackle - 2nd, 3rd round. Be it DT - should be some good ones comming out this year, or DE, and Im sure Crawford was in line for Spencers job so we will have to see how they address that now. But same as last year, I think a 3 technique is top of the list.

    I'm looking at Kareem Martin DE UNC and James Hurst OT/OG UNC. Also wouldn't mind Byrn Renner QB and Tre Boston S

    Just looking at who we should expect to lose, we'll want to add two DLs early and probably another OG in the middle rounds, at least.
    QB is an option for a high pick in the first or second if the right guy is there.

    O-Line and D-Line. Throw the kitchen sink at them in the first 3 rounds.

    It's way too soon to draft a QB that high in the draft with the current situation of the Dallas Cowboys. We have holes to fill, and do not have the luxury to throw a high draft pick on a QB who will sit most of his rookie contract.

    The Cowboys should have about 11 picks this year with comp picks, and 3/4 of those should go towards the offensive and defensive lines. We need to add at least 1 starter to OG, and a replacement for free in a year or so, but we need to add at least 1 DT to start, and 1 DE. If we can add some depth behind them hopefully this time next year we won't have to look on the waiver wire to fill those positions.

    What can I say? I think we'll be looking hard at QBs from here on out. And you've got to take them early. OG can be filled outside of the first three rounds of the draft. We're not bringing in that many drafted linemen. And Crawford's coming back. We will probably add a pair of rookie DLs.

    QB is too important, and takes too long to develop. If Tanney doesn't get that developmental spot, we need to draft one early.

    I want the big uglies with atleast the first two picks of this upcoming draft.

    Safety is also a concern with me as well.
