The draft is rolling along, and we patiently wait for the Dallas Cowboys to get on the clock at pick #28. As long as the Cowboys don’t decide to make a trade, we’ll get at least one pick in tonight. Who will it be? Stay tuned...

Defensive line/edge rusher: The Cowboys have needed help here for years, ever since the departure of DeMarcus Ware. They have plenty of guys int he rotation, but they need one stud who can get to the QB.
Cornerback: The Cowboys lost Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in free agency. They still have three corners who can play, in Orlando Scandrick, Nolan Carroll and Anthony Brown, but they need depth, and a possible upgrade.
Safety: Starter Barry Church and sometime-starter/reserve J.J. Wilcox both exited in free agency, leaving the Cowboys with Byron Jones and question marks. Jeff Heath is currently the other starter, but a high pick int he draft could become the starter at the position.
Right Tackle: Doug Free is retiring, and Chaz Green has yet to show he can stay healthy. Free agent signee Byron Bell is a stop-gap, the Cowboys need to find the future at the position.
