The Dallas Cowboys will enter the 2012 NFL offseason with a plethora of questions. Hopefully, some of those questions will be answered in free agency. By the time the NFL draft arrives in April, Jason Garrett and the Cowboys should have a defined plan of attack.
Some personnel issues should be solved. For example, the Cowboys should have signed a veteran backup quarterback or handed the reins to Stephen McGee. The Cowboys should have signed most of their free agents, whether they are big names or small additions. Lastly, the Cowboys should have parted ways with some of the slack on their roster.
By the time April comes, Garrett should know exactly where the Cowboys are weak and what players can help improve the team. Garrett will have a lot more say in this draft than many people think. Jerry Jones is no longer dictating over Wade Phillips. Jones has stated many times how intelligent he believes Garrett is.
This draft will most likely tell the story of Garrett’s career as the Cowboys head coach.
