NFL Draft Rumors: Dallas Cowboys likely to select defensive player in first-round

The NFL Draft is right around the corner and there are a lot of players that could go in any number of ways. But while the players will shuffle around the draft, the teams with needs will likely stick to those needs and adjust for the players available at given positions.

For the Dallas Cowboys, their needs are on defense and that’s likely what they’ll take in the first-round. According to Brandon George from SportsDayDFW.com, the Cowboys will be looking at who is available on defense when they go on the clock in the first-round.

Per The Dallas Morning News:

Well, Clowney would be the obvious name, but he’ll be long gone before the Cowboys pick. I’d say they’d be safe taking any of the top DL because that’s a position that has to be addressed high in the draft. … I did this earlier this off-season and it hasn’t changed: DL, DB, LB and then probably OL, WR.

This makes a ton of sense given the losses the Cowboys suffered on defense both literally on the field in 2013 and in the offseason. It’s hard to see the Cowboys passing on defense and a beefy defensive line prospect may be the way to go.
