There a few prospects the Cowboys have to consider in the draft; however, they need to rely on their big boards and take the best players available to them.
If the Cowboys are serious about getting better for the future, they need to amass the best players around. Whether those players are of positions of strength doesn’t matter. Just draft good players.
Simple enough right?
The draft is kind of my thing. I love this part of the season and if I were to tell you guys to watch out for some particular prospects this is who I think the Cowboys should keep an eye on:
Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida St.: Werner is likely the best all-around defensive end in the draft.
Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina: Decent size, excellent athleticism.
Eric Reid, S, LSU: Best center fielder in college football.
Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee: Can Miles Austin stay healthy enough not to consider this?
John Jenkins, DT, Georgia: If the Cowboys are committed to the 3-4, Jenkins is a perfect fit.
These are just a few first-round prospects, but the Cowboys have to make the draft count. The only position I think that needs to be targeted is a future quarterback between Rounds 2 and 4 if great value is there.
Jerry Jones has a history of valuing players wrong. He needs to go away from need or “potential” value and draft players that they feel comfortable with as long-term assets regardless of immediate fit.
