If there is one thing I love more about the NFL Draft process than scouting players and building my own board, it is the philosophy behind what is this sport’s best way to obtain talent and build a contending team. With jobs constantly on the line, 32 NFL teams all evaluate a massive pool of college prospects differently, and put their strategy of talent acquisition to the test with the pressure of a ticking clock inside the war room during the NFL Draft.

Some teams excel in the draft, others fail entirely, but most are relatively good at landing a few starters for their team each year. In 2016, the Dallas Cowboys excelled in the draft, and if they do it again this spring – a dynasty could very well be in the making in Dallas again.

The foundation for the perennial power the Dallas Cowboys could soon become is obviously the current members of America’s Team though, and thus they will affect the 2017 draft process.

Here are seven names to keep in mind. Use the arrows to get started.

    I think you nailed it with those variables and who will impact the draft. I think it’s fair to say that Chaz Green has been a disappointment. When you are not available it is disappointing and while he has shown some flashes at tackle it now looks like a position of need. I know there was talk of moving Collins to tackle but losing Leary will most certainly require us to take a tackle. Cooper is a bit of a wild card also as he may gel well with this line and be the guy he was originally drafted to be. And we still have Looney and Cleary. A guy of interest to me in the draft that often shows up in my mocks is Pat Elflein at C from Ohio State. I know he has played guard but wonder if he can play tackle. He is a great team leader and fits that RKG that Garrett likes. Good overview Sean.

      Thanks as always for your loyal readership and responses, Randy. Really appreciated. Firm believer that a player’s best trait is availability, since you here it from good scouts all the time, and that is what it really comes down to on Chaz Green. I’ll have to take a look at Elfein. Thanks! Enjoy the Super Bowl.
