It wasn’t a pleasure-filled journey to get here, but here we are. The Dallas Cowboys are sitting pretty with the No. 10 overall pick after a 6-10 campaign that saw almost every available body have to be used due to injuries. Dallas employed four quarterbacks, umpteen offensive line combinations, their top three free agents all off the roster by midseason and just a myriad of things going wrong stemming all the way back to the hiring of Mike Nolan as defensive coordinator.
Whew. It was a lot. But the NFL draft is a saving grace from a lost season. The Cowboys have a top-10 pick in a draft that seems to be QB-top heavy and without a need for a QB as Dak Prescott is locked in for the next three and likely four seasons. To compound the joy, the Cowboys are loaded on talent on offense and, while they can always add more, are in a prime position to take defense when most of the teams above them will be focusing on grabbing weapons in attempts to catch up to where Dallas already is.
That means there are very few ways the Cowboys can screw this up. In fact, I can only think of three.
