Heading into the 2021 season, there is no doubt that this offense is well ahead of the defense. My two biggest concerns about America's Team revolve around the secondary and the edge rushers. In the last two years, Dallas has spent five draft picks on defensive backs. Hopes are that some of those players will ease concerns in the secondary but this defensive line doesn't have the same young faces on the edge. Randy Gregory is 28 years old, in the final year of his contract, and has limited production thanks to his suspensions.

Demarcus Lawrence is 29 and could be a cap-casualty next offseason if his sack numbers don't improve. His cap hits in 2022 and 2023 are set to average $28M, and they will only be on the hook for a total of $19M if they cut him after this year. Tarell Basham and Dorance Armstrong don't have long-term commitments from the Cowboys, and Dallas' young defensive linemen are all interior options in Dan Quinn's scheme. Finding some youth on the edge may be their biggest need next offseason.

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.
