    Brian, very good assessment of our draft needs at this point in time. Now if we picked up a FA or two in between now and then, that could change things somewhat. But for right now, good overall overview of where we stand.

    Crash

    This is what the Cowboys should draft:

    1st.) CB To bookend with Trevon Diggs
    2d.) S This position has been ignored for along time and now needs to be seriously addressed
    3da.) LB. With Sean Lee’s future uncertain need a replacement for him
    3db ) DL. To replace a retired Tyrone Crawford
    4tha) OL To be able to step in anywhere on the OL if needed
    4thb). DE Someone to rush from the edge
    5th. ) LB With Vander Esch unable to stay healthy
    6th.a) CB For depth
    6th.b) LB For depth
    7th. ) QB. For depth
