How the Dallas Cowboys Can Become Super Bowl Contenders
Most NFL teams that get a lot of publicity are teams consistently reaching or getting close to the Super Bowl. Not so with the Dallas Cowboys, who seem to be the center of attention despite their consistent year in and year out short comings to reach the pinnacle. All is not lost, however, for this team. Outside of the offensive line, this team is loaded on offense. They have three starting caliber wide receivers in Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Laurent Robinson. The running back position has two young talented players in DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones as well. And despite the general perception, Tony Romo was great last year.
The main needs for this team to be a contender is depth at the offensive line, secondary and another pass rusher to consistently bring pressure opposite DeMarcus Ware. I believe two can be solved through the draft, but not all three. This draft is loaded with defensive talent, and they can find a pass rusher and a starting corner in the first two rounds. Keep an eye on Dre Kirkpatrick (CB, Alabama), Janoris Jenkins (CB, North Alabama) and Quinton Coples (DE, UNC) for a first round selection. The big prize on the FA front is the guard from New Orleans, Carl Nicks. Sources say he wants to stay with the Saints, but at the right price, the Cowboys could snatch him away.
