High expectations are nothing new for America's Team, but this season seems to have a ton of excitement revolving around the Cowboys now that September is here. Everywhere you look on this offense, there is an exciting playmaker, whether it's the three-headed monster of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb, or the talented duo of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard. With Dak Prescott playing to prove he is worth every penny he's asking for, and Mike McCarthy now calling the shots, I believe this offense will be one of the league's best.

However, it is the defense that has its question marks. After having a top-tier unit in 2018, the Dallas defense took a step back a year ago. The Cowboys brought in some free-agent reinforcements with Aldon Smith, Everson Griffin, and Dontari Poe, but those three just join a long list of defenders with contracts that expire at the end of the year. Help along the defensive line will be something the Cowboys keep an eye on in the draft, but with Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, HaHa Clinton Dix, and Xavier Woods all in the final year of their deal, the secondary is where I went.

Sterns was the Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2018, but struggled with injuries a year ago. Still, he is always around the football with 121 tackles in 22 games. The Cowboys have had a lot of conversations about improving at Safety with guys like Jamal Adams and Earl Thomas, but have balked at pulling the trigger for various reasons. With names like Stern, Oregon's Jevon Holland, Syracuse's Andre Cisco, and TCU's Trevon Moehrig, there is a strong chance Dallas will get a chance to change that next April.

COWBOYS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
