Dallas Cowboys fans are looking to Jerry Jones to make the right picks to retool the Cowboys roster. The Cowboys missed the playoffs once again in 2011 despite their strong passing game, the dynamic pass-rush of DeMarcus Ware and a top-10 rush defense.
A few things were missing in 2011.
First, the offensive line lacked depth and gave up a disappointing number of sacks. Second, Cowboys cornerbacks failed in coverage. Third, the Cowboys pass-rush was often absent despite Ware placing second in the NFL in sacks.
Cowboys fans likely wonder whether Jones will draft the players they're hoping for or if he'll pick players for flash and brilliance. Will he fill needs or go for talent? How many players will be drafted above their projection?
Following is a prediction of how Jones will approach the draft for the Cowboys.
