This draft comes down to one thing in my opinion...depth. There are many things to consider when heading into a draft , the main two things that get talked about are BPA and need, the one thing they both have in common is value. I don't think enough can be said for how much of an impact value has on a draft.
Would I love a new safety? Of course! What Cowboys fan wouldn't? Our safety play has been deplorable at best. With Abe Elam and Gerald Sensabaugh we have two strong safeties starting, so that, in my mind eliminates Barron because he's a strong safety, what we need is a true center field type free safety. Only issue is we need to upgrade our whole secondary and as far as depth goes in this years draft the value for a cornerback in the second and third is much higher. Markelle Martin will be over drafted due to lack of depth, but if we pick him at 45 we'll sell ourselves short because there will be a handful of cornerbacks rated higher than him at that spot. so my ideal scenario for the Cowboys first three rounds goes as follows.
1. Decastro if he's available, if he isn't I go BPA CB/ Pass rusher Dl or LB
2. If Decastro is taken in the first then BPA CB/Pass rusher, if he isn't then BPA G/C
3. BPA G/C/CB/Pass rusher
4. BPA G/C/CB
Since I think Decastro will be gone by the time the Cowboys pick and drugs or not Dre K will be gone as well, my mock goes like this.
1. Michael Brockers, DL, LSU or Melvin Ingram, LB, SC
2. Stephon Gilmore CB, SC or Chase Minnefield, CB, VA
3. David Molk, C, Michigan
4. Lucas Nix, G, Pitt
