to After watching the tape of many of the targets Dallas is considering I've come to the conclusion that Mark Barron is the direction this team needs to go get to the next level.
Cases can be made for DeCastro, Upshaw, and even Janoris Jenkins but none of those guys possess what Barron does. Barron is going to be the type of leader that we haven't had since Darren Woodson. He's a violent hitter that also excels in coverage. As we've seen for the last decade or so, good safeties are far and few between. If our Cowboys continue to pass over elite safeties we will continue to be mired in mediocrity. How many times do we pass over once in a generational talent in guys like Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu? It's time to stop ignoring Safeties.
DeCastro does help our offensive line, but not our defense. What many of you don't understand is you stay relevant defensively. That's why Baltimore and Pittsburgh have been playoff teams for the last decade. If we want to set our team up for success long term it's time we stop making moves to help us offensively. We've had offensive talent for years and what has it gotten us?
The fact that 2 of our top 3 wrs we found off the street speaks volumes (Laurent Robinson, Miles Austin). You can get great offensive players in the middle and later rounds (Jason Witten, DeMarco Murray are both 3rd rounders). Most of all, our Qb was an undrafted Free Agent.
You can't fill defensive spots with late round draft picks and guys off the street. So forget about the injury and draft Mark Barron at 14 - it will pay dividends immediately.
