The Dallas Cowboys always seem to be at the front of the drama and news no matter the time of the year. This year talks have rotated around two key positions for Dallas. Those positions being running back and defensive end. While running back has brought on its own amount of drama, it is nothing compared to the amount of drama that has been heaped upon the Cowboy’s defensive end position. It all started with the addition of troubled defensive star, Greg Hardy, of the Carolina Panthers. The move was met with backlash, but the Cowboys held firm in their decision.

Greg Hardy has since then been suspended ten games with the appeal pending. Going into the draft, the Cowboys knew they needed a long term solution for their pass rushing problem. Someone needed to be paired with DeMarcus Lawrence for the next decade, and that man was top pass rusher Randy Gregory. The troubled pass rusher practically fell into the lap of Jerry Jones with the 60th overall pick. That is a huge pickup for a guy that was projected to go in the top ten before failing a drug test at the NFL combine.

Gregory is a risk, but before the draft he met face to face with Jerry Jones. Gregory told Jones that if the Cowboys drafted him he would seek help from the team, and the Cowboys are the best the NFL has to offer when helping troubled players. Gregory will be entering a program that has helped players by the name of Michael Irvin, Adam Jones, and most recently Dez Bryant. The former Cornhusker should be in very capable hands with the team.

The Cowboys essentially got three first round talents from this draft with only one first round pick. Byron Jones was selected before Gregory in the first round, and La’el Collins was signed as a undrafted free agent. All three of these young men could make a huge impact for Dallas this year. It’s not time to start screaming super bowl, but these moves should make Cowboys fans  even more excited for this upcoming season.

    I agree. Nothing lost if he doesn’t make it.
