The Valley Ranch Review: The Cowboys Need Depth at Cornerback

The Star Telegram breaks down the Cowboys' need at cornerback. Although second-year pros Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick will be counted on, the position will have to be addressed come training camp.

Terence Newman is the only proven player at the position. But the Cowboys like the potential of Jenkins and Scandrick. Scandrick, a fifth-round pick in 2008, had a better rookie season than Jenkins, who was a first-rounder. However, Jenkins will be given every opportunity to develop his first-round talent. Scandrick will see the field no matter what, either as a starter on the outside or as a nickel corner over the slot receiver. Ball is in his third year and still is an unknown commodity while little is expected of Hawkins, an Arena League holdover.

You can see what Orlando Scandrick had to say on a variety of subjects in this BTB article from last night.

Nick Eatman is going with a Duck in his mock draft. He has the Cowboys picking Oregon center, Max Unger, at #51. Check out the rest of Eatman's picks.

Another Oregon player the Cowboys may have interest in is safety Patrick Chung. Rich Gosselin discusses Chung's versatility, "having played both free and strong safety in his college career".

Florida Gator running back Percy Harvin looks to be off the Cowboys' draft board.
