Cowboys needs and how it plays out in the draft

Matt Mosley of ESPN talks today about the Cowboys offseason needs, and how it relates to the 2010 NFL Draft:

I had a chance to visit with owner Jerry Jones on ESPN 103.3 in Dallas-Fort Worth on Tuesday and he made it pretty clear that he’s not feeling pressure to fill any certain positions. In some ways, the Cowboys will be rolling out two draft classes in 2010. The ’09 class was taken out by a wide variety of injuries, so Jones is anxious to see how some of those players respond. Jones didn’t confirm this, but I’ve been told that the scouting department is taking a long look at the safety position with the No. 27 pick overall. The organization is disappointed in the play of Ken Hamlin and it’s time to start looking for his eventual replacement. Alan Ball has looked good at times, but I’m not sure he’s ready for full-time duty. The Cowboys also would like to add depth along the offensive line. Doug Free emerged as a solid contributor in ’09, but the team needs to continue drafting and developing young linemen. I’m not sure where the Cowboys will find a place-kicker, but it’s certainly a major need. In fact, it’s probably their biggest need heading into the 2010 season.
