Follow along with the 2017 NFL Draft and discuss all the moves. So far the Cowboys have picked up a defensive end in Taco Charlton, and a corner in Chidobe Awuzie. We’ll see if they keep with the defnesive theme in the third round where they have overall pick #92. This is an open thread for draft chat. Cowboys Needs: Defensive line/edge rusher: The Cowboys have needed help here for years, ever since the departure of DeMarcus Ware. They have plenty of guys int he rotation, but they need one stud who can get to the QB. — Taco Charlton Cornerback: The Cowboys lost Brandon Carr and...
Cowboys do need pass rush help, but here's why they need to take DB in draft's first round

Cowboys do need pass rush help, but here's why they need to take DB in draft's first round

This is Part II of a three-part series.The Cowboys' front office watched, rather nonchalantly it seemed, as two of Dallas' starting cornerbacks signed with other teams during free agency in March.Sure, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne could be polarizing among fans because production didn't always match the investment the Cowboys made in them over the last five seasons. But their exits to the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets also proved unsettling. Uh, how did Dallas plan to fill the void, exactly?All is copacetic, the Cowboys' brass promised. The expensive, sometimes underperforming...

POLL: Is the Ravens roster better or worse after the first six weeks of the offseason?

The Baltimore Ravens have been busy during the first six weeks of the 2017 NFL offseason. Ozzie Newsome and the front office have retooled the roster with several bold moves. Tony Jefferson, Brandon Carr and Danny Woodhead have been acquired, their contracts will equal $70 million combined in the unlikely event that all three play out the entirety of their deals in Baltimore. The Ravens have also re-signed five of their own players - Brandon Williams, Anthony Levine, Ryan Mallett, Lardarius Webb and Michael Campanaro. The maximum value of these five contracts total another $70 million. Due...

Cowboys 2017 Draft: Is Gareon Conley The Most Complete Corner In The Draft?

Cowboys 2017 Draft: Is Gareon Conley The Most Complete Corner In The Draft?

If the Cowboys take a cornerback in the first round, the Buckeye should be player they hope to land. The Dallas Cowboys are going to get themselves a good cornerback in this draft. Who that player is and when they take him, is a big mystery. There are several ways to go for the Cowboys. The best player on their board at 28 could be a corner or they may choose to wait until pick 60 to take one. Either spots should give the team a quality CB that can step in and fill the shoes of the departed Brandon Carr or Morris Claiborne. Over the next few weeks, there are going to be several corners...

The Ravens have the potential to roll out the NFL’s best secondary in 2017

The Ravens have the potential to roll out the NFL’s best secondary in 2017

It has been one crazy offseason in Baltimore. One of the biggest needs on the team coming into the offseason was the secondary, but now the unit looks like one of the team’s strengths. This offseason, the Ravens brought in Tony Jefferson and Brandon Carr in addition to bringing back Lardarius Webb after cutting him in March. These moves helped to strengthen the starting secondary unit, as well as its depth. As a result, the Ravens could very well produce the best secondary in the NFL. At cornerback, the Ravens posses three truly solid starters. Jimmy Smith will continue to be the number...

Which Cornerback Among The Cowboys Pre-Draft Visitors Should Dallas Draft?

Which Cornerback Among The Cowboys Pre-Draft Visitors Should Dallas Draft?

The Cowboys are bringing in a quite a few cornerbacks for visits, but is there one consensus leader? The Dallas Cowboys have telegraphed their intention to draft at least one cornerback, possibly more, in the 2017 NFL Draft. Based on the fact they let Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr leave in free agency, you knew that cornerback was going to be a focus. As the pre-draft visitor’s list started to come out, it became even more obvious as the Cowboys have had at least 11 corners in for visits, nine of which are likely first-or second-round picks. Here’ s our up-to-date list. Cowboys...

Poll: Biggest need remaining for the Ravens as they near the draft

Poll: Biggest need remaining for the Ravens as they near the draft

The Baltimore Ravens have had a relatively active offseason, bringing in players such as Tony Jefferson, Danny Woodhead, and Brandon Carr to a squad that nearly made the playoffs last season. While there is no way to tell how their record will shake out at this juncture, it is probably fair to say that the team has improved since the start of free agency. This is despite the losses of Rick Wagner, Kyle Juszczyk, and Timmy Jernigan, and in part thanks to their ability to retain mammoth defensive tackle Brandon Williams. Ozzie Newsome has said that there is a ‘high probability’ that...
