10 Dallas Cowboys Who Are Most Important to Super Bowl Hopes

The Dallas Cowboys, known as "America's Team," have fallen on hard times recently. Despite possessing high expectations and a talented roster—with players like Tony Romo, Jason Witten and DeMarcus Ware—the Cowboys have failed to make the playoffs three years in a row, mainly due to injuries, inconsistent play and playing in the always tough NFC East division.

This year, the outlook looks sunny again for the Cowboys. Many key players are getting healed up, and the team has a new defensive coordinator, Monte Kiffin, who has 26 years of experience as an NFL assistant. The hire of Kiffin is even being lauded as the "best hire the Cowboys have ever made," according to former Cowboys scouting director Larry Lacewell.

So which players look to be the most essential to a potential Cowboys' Super Bowl run this year? Let's look at the top 10.

Players will be ranked according to how much impact their performance this season will have on the team's overall success, not necessarily their skill level.

Honorable mentions: Anthony Spencer, DE, Miles Austin, WR, Travis Frederick, C, Dan Bailey, K
