In The Stars: 5 Unexpected Prospects the Cowboys Could Target in the 2017 Draft

[tps_title]3T DT DeMarcus Walker, Florida State[/tps_title]

The has many needs that should and likely will be addressed in this draft, but 3T is actually not one of these pressing needs. Rookie starter has given Dallas an exciting piece at the most important position in their , while remains on the roster as a DT that was forced to fill the void at DE in 2016.

's best rushes at the have also come from the DT position, making the interior of this front relatively crowded. A firm believer in the draft philosophy of, “if you feel that you are good enough at a position, add yet another quality starter there,” I would be prepared for the Cowboys to at least show interest in Florida State's DeMarcus Walker.

An incredibly productive member of the FSU throughout his career, Walker has NFL traits but may not have a true professional position. Sliding down some boards while being tagged as a 3T DT (and a liability on running downs in this spot), Walker wouldn't have to be “the guy” with the Cowboys here.

Instead, Dallas can ensure that there best continues to come into the quarterback's face, targeting an athletic player like Walker who is capable of holding up in Dallas at LDE.

As these players, and many more rise and fall through the process of the 2017 NFL , be sure to check out Slant Sports for updated draft analysis and reports – as we continue to also target the prospects that will put the Dallas Cowboys over the top in the 2017 Draft right here at Inside The Star
