Jerry Jones and his team of advisers are being praised for a step in the right direction because of their decision to place heavy emphasis on the defensive side of the ball in this year’s draft. Out of the nine players that were drafted by the Cowboys, seven of them are defenders. At the start of the offseason, Cowboys fans were generally dismayed at the loss of so many defensive backs (Brandon Carr, Barry Church, Morris Claiborne, and JJ Wilcox). Through this draft, however, the positions claimed by these men were swiftly filled (Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, Marquez White, and Xavier Woods). In the trenches, we lost Jack Crawford and Terrell Mcclain who were replaced by pass-rushing athlete Taco Charlton, Joey Ivie, and Jordan Carrell. The offense has meanwhile seen the addition of Ryan Switzer and Noah “Is That Stickum” Brown. The Cowboys are in prime position to improve on an impressive year last season. Hopefully, the aforementioned players will be able to contribute towards a run in the playoffs. Go, Cowboys!
