I've been leaning towards a defender for most of the fall with the Cowboys first-round pick, mainly because of the multitude of free agents this group has on the defensive side of the ball. However, guys like Dalton Schultz, Cedrick Wilson and Connor Williams have likely priced themselves out of a return to America's Team, and considering the recent struggles on this side of the ball, I'll be keeping a more open mind.

I'm sticking with an edge rusher this week because there is still a strong possibility that Dallas is unable to retain guys like Randy Gregory and Dorance Armstrong. Both are having career seasons, combining for 11 sacks, and Dallas will need to replace that production if they find a new home this offseason. Jackson's career at USC was filled with brilliant flashes and consistency issues that stemmed from varying roles that each new defensive coordinator thrust upon him.

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.
