The NFL Draft is just around the corner and the Dallas Cowboys are looking at their options and what will help them rebound from the horrible season they had in 2013. While they already had enough internal problems to deal with, the Cowboys now have to account for DeSean Jackson on the Washington Redskins and many think that may prompt them to draft a cornerback to counter the move.
But according to ESPN’s Todd Archer, the Cowboys will be going defense in the first-round of the draft but won’t be going cornerback.
I think they’re going to go with Carr, Claiborne and Scandrick unless a player of great value falls to them in the second or third round. I don’t see them going after a corner at 16.
While the move of Jackson to the Redskins seems daunting, it’s not as though the Cowboys didn’t already have to account for him when he was with the Eagles. If the Cowboys have one bright spot, it’s their defensive secondary and while they may take a cornerback in the draft, it won’t be very early.
