The biggest issue surrounding the Dallas Cowboys in the last two years has been their secondary. They simply haven't had the playmakers back there to make a big enough impact in the NFC East.
However, with the signing of free agent Brandon Carr and the drafting of Morris Claiborne, the Cowboys are looking to change that. As far as pressure goes, the most pressure is going to be on Claiborne. Not only was he the first defensive player taken in the 2012 NFL draft, but the Cowboys made a giant trade to move up to draft him with the sixth pick.
They're basically putting their stock in Claiborne to instantly improve that unit, and that is a lot of pressure to put on such a young player. While there is no doubting the immense talent that Claiborne has, the fact that he has to play with "America's Team" will put even more pressure on him to perform from day one.
There are few who don't love what Claiborne brings to the table, and hopefully, his mental makeup is capable of handling the pressure that has been placed on him.
