Even after the signings of Damontae Kazee, Jayron Kearse and even Keanu Neal, safety is still a large need for the Dallas Cowboys. While Neal will shift to a hybrid role that focuses his attention on the line of scrimmage, he and Kazee are familiar with defensive coordinator Dan Quinn which will give them some pedigree in pecking order. Both are signed for just one year and Kazee is coming off an Achilles injury in October; the team is not viewing either as long-term starters which opens the door to address safety at some point in the draft. The front office will likely not look to address the position at No. 10, but it should be on the table at any point after that, including in a trade-back scenario.
Trevon Moehrig is easily my No. 1-rated safety in the class and may end up going in the first round depending on how the board falls for certain teams. If Moehrig were to fall here’s why the team should be aggressive in trying to add him to the team.
