The 2013 NFL draft cannot come soon enough, and for Cowboys fans, that means a real chance at some tangible offseason results. With the Cowboys abstaining from major free-agency activity, the time has finally come to add some pieces to the roster.
With a punch list of roster needs and the endless search for talent, the Cowboys need to be strategic, opportunistic and focused heading into this draft. This a deep draft at certain positions, some of which happen to coincide with the most pressing needs of this franchise.
Offensive line, defensive line, running back and safety are just the most pressing needs, but the Cowboys could use a wide receiver or tight end if the right prospect fell into their laps. The most important factor to consider in anticipation of the draft is in finding good football players. It sounds simple conceptually, but it's been difficult in achievement for Jerry Jones.
With so much emphasis on whether combine results matched game footage and whether the Senior Bowl provided any answers, the Cowboys simply need to find football players who can contribute to the present and future of this team.

But exactly who are the right draft prospects for the Cowboys? Well, unfortunately, talent evaluation isn't exactly the fortune telling business, but it needs to be pretty close.
Let's take a look at the prospects who just might be the right fits for the Cowboys.
