Name a need; Cowboys have it
By Todd Archer
INDIANAPOLIS – With back-to-back 8-8 finishes, the Dallas Cowboys have plenty of needs to address in order to improve in 2013.
The good news, according to owner and general manager Jerry Jones, is that the Cowboys will not be married to one position. Whenever a team can use the “best player available” theory, a draft is more successful.
“I think that you can just about name any position that we can draft and it will help us upgrade some of the areas that will look like needing upgrading,” Jones said.
Offensive and defensive line and safety figure to be at the top of the Cowboys’ wish list, and several general managers said the draft is strong in those areas as prospects worked out at the NFL scouting combine.
On Sunday Texas’ Kenny Vaccaro, considered the top safety in the draft, said his agent told him the Cowboys will bring him in for a visit.
“We upgraded safety when we brought Kiffin in relative to what we’re doing to need at safety and what we’re going to do,” Jones said.
