TK19 had an interesting fanpost titled "David DeCastro and the Yuglies', where he makes a good argument for the Cowboys to draft David DeCastro, guard, in the 1st round of the upcoming NFL draft.
And of course, watching the teams offensive line disintegrate against the Giants again, fans are left with no opposition to the Cowboys continuing to beef up the Oline, and give Tony the protection he's always deserved
But then, several hours later, 5Blings publishes his fanpost "season wrap-up part 3- six for six", where he asserts that guard is not the most pressing need with the Cowboys Oline, but that center is, and states that he believes that the Cowboys should draft Wisconsin's Peter Konz, the top center in the upcoming draft.
I'm sure one could make a compelling argument that the Cowboys should also use the 1st round pick on DE, OLB, CB, or even another ILB. But that is not what this fanpost is about. We all know the Cowboys cannot afford to ignore the defense again this year, and they won't. But we all want to see the Cowboys continue to build a strong OLine. So the issue is IF the Cowboys find it that the best value is to draft Oline with the first pick, what would be the best position?
It's not that we all, as fans, don't want to see an upgrade at the guard position, because we all do. TK's point is valid, and Decastro would be a good pick. But would guard be the best value at 14, even if it was DeCastro? We all now see the growing pains of the Oline, and want to see even more improvement. So this now becomes a legitimate topic for Oline improvement, and the direction the Cowboys should go in IF the first pick is Oline.
