How Did The Draft Impact The Cowboys' Schedule?


The recently concluded draft has given NFL teams their first infusion of new blood since the offseason began. Save for the less than handful of free agents that were without a contract (read, released) no one has been able to join a franchise except for the draft picks. We all gathered around the campfire when the Cowboys schedule was released. Let's take a second look and see what has changed with the infusion of amateur talent.

Follow the jump...

WEEK OPPONENT NOTES ON DRAFT IMPACT
1 @ NY Jets For all that is said about the Jets vaunted defense, they don't rush the passer well. Meet penetrating d-linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and Kenrick Ellis.
2 @ San Fran Game 2 of the Kaepernick era? Some folks pet cat Aldon Smith playing 3-4 OLB
3 Washington We'll get our first look at Kerackpo, and the wealth of Skins mid-rounders
4 Detroit Fairley and Suh? We better be able to run in space…ahem Tyron Smith, DeMarco Murray.
5 BYE WEEK Hardest game on the schedule
6 @ New England We get to rush against the target BTB feared, Nate Solder, while Dez and Miles battle Dowling-McCourty
7 St. Louis We get to see SackSEER's overvalue case of Robert Quinn, plus Bradford has three new weapons in TE Kendricks and WRs Pettis and Salas
8 @ Philly Dallas gets the first crack at AARP OL Danny Watkins
9 Seattle Not much to see here, in my opinion. The Seahawks drafted two lineman I wanted Dallas to specifically avoid in Carpenter and Moffitt
10 Buffalo The Bills needed so much help, every position was probably an upgrade, but Aaron Williams in the secondary draws my attention after d-line stud Dareus
11 @Washington Kerrigan has some games under his belt and Hankerson might have developed at wideout.
12 Miami The Dolphins went all O early with help on the line in Pouncey and skill guys RB Thomas and WR Gates
13 @Arizona Dez Bryant vs Patrick Peterson. Yum. Sam Acho vs Tyron Smith. Delish.
14 NY Giants Jason Garrett applauded when Amukamara went to the Giants, let's see what he saw.
15 @Tampa Clayborn, and McCoy, plus possibly Bowers? Wow. Get ready O-Line.
16 Philly It will be interesting to see Jaiquawn Jarrett's career, if the Cowboys passed on a legit safety or not. Marsh at CB too.
17 @NY Giants Marvin Austin is next in the line of annoying Giants d-lineman. How does Jerrigan even see the field at WR?
