NFL Draft 2015: Dallas Cowboys Team Needs

2015 NFL Scouting Combine

The Cowboys were an inch away from the NFC Title game last season, and while many still feel they were cheated by the officials in what should have been a good catch by Dez Bryant, that’s all in the past as the team gets set for the 2015 NFL Draft. Get the 2015 NFL Betting Lines here at

Let’s face it, even if the Cowboys would have beaten Green Bay, they would have had to have a great effort against the Seattle Seahawks. Sure they may have won that game as well, but no matter how far they would have gotten, this team has needs, and with losing running back DeMarco Murray to the rival Philadelphia Eagles.

As far as needs, there’s five that the Cowboys will need to focus on for the 2015 NFL Draft, which will take place April 30th to May 2nd, and this year will take place in Chicago.

The team could use the following – cornerback, running back, defensive tackle, offensive lineman, and linebacker.

Here’s a list of the seven picks that the Cowboys Falcons and staff will have when the draft kicks off, this is unless the team makes a deal to give away or even add more picks to try and get their roster where they want to be.

Round 1 (27), Round 2 (60), Round 3 (91), Round 4 (127), Round 5 (163), Round 7 (236), Round 7 (243)

The team did go out and try to at least stop the bleeding at the running back spot, that being the pickup of former Oakland Raiders back Darren McFadden. He is a stop-gap at best for now until the team grabs a full-time back that hopefully will make the loss of Murray not be as big as it seems today.

Another spot they need to get filled right away is cornerback. They will look to fill that role in the draft, as well as if a player or two gets released come training camp.

As far as Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli goes, he is going to want an interior defensive lineman, and one player that could fill that void is Malcolm Brown, a huge defensive tackle from Texas.

Grabbing the big-bodied, hometown guy will help fill a need in the middle of the defensive line and give the Cowboys someone who can occupy blockers and set Greg Hardy free once he returns from his inevitable suspension.

Dallas could also look for a strong side or middle linebacker this year. The Cowboys could also add depth to not the offensive line. They have needs to fill, and look for the 2015 NFL Draft to be the start for the Cowboys to get better and ready for this upcoming season.

    Note to COWBOYS fans from the DMV:

    Thank you for BILL CALLAHAN.

    This guy is a serious upgrade where it was needed.

    Now all the REDSKINS need is a road-grader at RG. BRANDON SCHERIFF comes immediately to mind if the new GM trades back to 10-12 in the first round. That of course remains to be seen.

    In an aside, maybe JASON HATCHER has enough around him to earn his pay this season. We’ll see.

    If the REDSKINS hold onto and use their fifth pick, I see KEVIN WHITE in our future, not RANDY GREGORY. At five you take the best player on the board regardless of players/positions currently on the squad. If DANTE FOWLER is not availabe, then the best pass-rusher is already off the board. It makes no sense to take the second-best rusher that high.

    I think noise about MARKUS MARIOTA is just that – noise. An inducement to a trade down to secure extra picks.

    Note to writers and editors of the ‘GAB’ – when are you going to open up the REDSKINS site so I can post there?
