The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine is over with, and now we're counting down the days before the NFL draft takes place at Radio City Music Hall in New York on April 25, 26 and 27. The Dallas Cowboys will have to wait for free agency to take place before getting a feel for what they'll do with their No. 18 overall pick, and what happens in the 17 preceding picks will obviously factor in as well.
Still, we couldn't wait. Here are 10 prospects the 'Boys should be planning on targeting with that top selection in our post-combine draft board for America's Team.
As the first point notes, the key will be what happens with impending unrestricted free agent Anthony Spencer, whom the team wants to re-sign but might not be able to afford. As they move to a 4-3, they'll need a complementary pass-rushing weapon for DeMarcus Ware, but the interior defensive line also requires some reinforcement.
That, combined with the fact that Doug Free is a huge liability at right tackle and there are weak spots at center and guard, means the trenches should be the focus of this year's draft.
I also included a pair of safeties while mentioning a third, but I feel as though Dallas can fare well at that spot with Gerald Sensabaugh and Barry Church starting in 2013.
Please feel free to fire back with some thoughts in the comments section.
