Cowboys Plan Defensive Draft, Adoree' Jackson In Play at 28

What a difference a year makes. A year ago at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Cowboys had the fourth-overall pick with a number of issues to address for the future of the franchise. Dallas' front office hit a home run in the 2016 NFL Draft by landing young franchise quarterback Dak Prescott in the fourth round after taking star running back Ezekiel Elliott in the opening frame. Playing behind the best offensive line in the NFL, Dallas' young duo led them to the top-seeded team in the NFC before falling in an epic playoff game against the Packers. In speaking with members of the Cowboys scouting staff, Dallas is inclined to have more of a defensive draft in 2017. 

The Cowboys could look to upgrade a few places on their defense. Last year, Dallas was close to drafting cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and corner remains a position that they look to address. Sources have said they have Adoree' Jackson graded in the first round, and he could be in play for Dallas. There were concerns about Jackson's height, but he measured in at 5-foot-10, 186 pounds, and those numbers are similar to former Chargers first-round pick Jason Verrett. Dallas likes Jackson's cover skills and ability to prevent separation. Jackson is fifth in our NFL Draft Cornerback Prospect Rankings.  

Dallas also wants to upgrade its pass rush, and there are a number of edge rushers who could interest them in the first round. As Jerry Jones stated, the Cowboys need a "war daddy" to lead their pass rush, so they could easily go with a defensive end.
