Assembling an NFL roster is never an easy task for any franchise. While there will always be a significant number decisions that are no-brainers, there are also the same amount of decisions that are based on splitting hairs.
The bottom line is that even the most sophisticated personnel executives in the NFL don't operate with a crystal ball. The Dallas Cowboys are coming off of consecutive 8-8 seasons that were marked with inconsistencies, injuries, mistakes and the failure to live up to expectations.
The best way to overcome these disappointing seasons is by winning more games. That is easier said than done. For the Cowboys, 2013 represents yet another chance at inching closer to football's ultimate prize.
But what will it take to get there? Is it a lack of talent? Coaching? Management?
The Cowboys need improvement in all aspects of their organization, as football is the total team sport, but let's start with the roster and the product on the field. If the 2013 season marks a new beginning for this franchise then it needs to start with what everybody can see.
It's never too early to assess the depth chart. The completion of the OTAs is a great place to start.
