The Dallas Cowboys must rebuild their defense through the 2017 NFL Draft. Here’s an updated draft order for the Cowboys.
Going into the 2017 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys have some needs to address. Despite finishing with the NFC’s best record at 13-3, they lost to the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs. So far in the offseason, they have lost both of their starting corners and one of their starting safeties. Brandon Carr is now with the Baltimore Ravens while Morris Claiborne is now with the New York Jets. Barry Church signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
It’s up to general manager and owner Jerry Jones to get some talent at the 2017 NFL Draft. Luckily, this is a deep draft for the secondary, so it’s feasible they could get two starting corners and a safety. However, Dallas will need a bit of luck to do so. They also must improve their offensive line depth after losing Ron Leary to the Denver Broncos.
Dallas has a bright future thanks to Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. Hopefully Dez Bryant will have better chemistry with his quarterback with a full offseason to work with him. Jason Witten is starting to show his age a little bit, so drafting a tight end is very likely for the Cowboys. They also need to add a pass rusher or two, as they didn’t do a good job of pressuring quarterbacks last season.
Round 1 – 28th overall
Round 2 – 60th overall
Round 3 – 92nd overall
Round 4 – 133rd overall
Round 6 – 211th overall
Round 7 – 228th overall
Round 7 – 246th overall
This is a very important draft for the Cowboys. Jones has to nail these picks or else he risks losing a great chance to bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Dallas. America’s team will look to improve in the draft.
