The Dallas Cowboys used their last pick in the 2017 NFL draft on another defensive tackle. This time it was Jordan Carrell out of Colorado. The Cowboys certainly decided this was going to be a defensive draft, and they made that happen. Carrell becomes the second late-round defensive tackle for the Cowboys along with Joey Ivie.

NFL DraftScout:

2016 ALL-PAC-12 CONFERENCE HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): DL, Jordan Carrell, Sr.,...Honorable Mention All-Pac-12: Played a big role in helping CU's defense lead the conference by allowing just 323.8 yards per game, a mark that ranked No. 13 in the country … his 625 snaps played on defense were the most of any Buffalo defensive lineman, and his 46 tackles tied for the most by a CU defensive lineman … he had 5½ sacks on the season, ranking second on the team and in a tie for ninth in the Pac-12 … was also credited with 12 quarterback pressures on the season and four third-down stops

Cowboys Needs:

Defensive line/edge rusher: The Cowboys have needed help here for years, ever since the departure of DeMarcus Ware. DE Taco Charlton

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. CB Chidobe Awuzie, CB Jourdan Lewis, CB Marquez White

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. S Xavier Woods

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.
