    Dallas Cowboys Head Toward NFL Draft with No Glaring Needs

    When the began after the fell to the in the of the , it was clear that they were a team on the rise, but had several areas they needed to address as and the draft approached.

    The team had holes or depth issues at , defensive , swing tackle, , , and . Through the first two weeks of free agency, the Dallas Cowboys have taken care of each of those areas.

    With the signings of , , , , , , and , The Dallas Cowboys have set themselves up to approach the draft with “clear eyes and a full heart.”

    As they head into April with the looming, the Cowboys won’t be held back by positional need and can allow their draft board to do the work for them and just add good players. It’s an excellent position to be in as they don’t have to reach for a player at a position of need they may not like as much because they have a veteran presence filling that need.

    Backup appears to be the only position where the Cowboys could use some depth, but that player for this team is more of a player who gets limited snaps on because of the greatness of . It’s generally a position where there is a lot of talent deep in the draft and undrafted pool, which allows the Cowboys to be patient filling that need behind the NFL’s leading rusher.

    Mother than that, if the Dallas Cowboys has to go play a football game and win today, they’d be in great shape to do so.

    On the flip side, however, the Cowboys can still add players at , wide receiver, tight end, safety, and defensive end because they aren’t restricted by big contracts to those veteran players. Each of them came to the Cowboys on one-year deals. The veterans that they signed would prohibit them from drafting at that same position, and that’s the point.

    The Cowboys have created a formula that works really well for them. Sometimes it get frustrating watching the team not make any big splashes in free agency, especially that first week when other teams are bringing in big-name players to add to their rosters. That formula has led them to a 48-32 record over the last five seasons with three titles, and two playoff wins, and three divisional round appearances.

    And the playoff runs could have been deeper with a bit of luck and correct .

    The Dallas Cowboys have set themselves up really well as they now set their sights on the NFL Draft at the end of April. Though they won’t have a pick to add to their talent pool, the Cowboys have shown that they can find talent in the and beyond. This year will be no different.

    Now it’s time to sit back and trust the process.
