The Cowboys “position cluster” of free agent visits could say a lot about their 2018 draft strategy

The Cowboys are being very narrow about what positions they are looking at in free agency. What would you say is the biggest position of need on the Cowboys at the moment? (waits for you to think) (now waits for you to answer in your mind... bonus points if you did out loud) Cool. Thanks for playing. We all likely have some sort of combination of linebacker, safety, guard, and in some cases (probably a lot) wide receiver. The upcoming NFL draft will likely be when we the Cowboys try to address all of these glaring holes, but if only there had been a way for them to accrue talent over the...

Will Allen Hurns interest Dallas given their pursuit of wide receivers this offseason?

After ‘missing out’ on Sammy Watkins last week, maybe the Cowboys will have interest in Allen Hurns. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team that has had its struggles on offense previous to 2017. The addition of Leonard Fournette and the coaching of Doug Marrone made the unit much better. Part of the issue has been Blake Bortles, drafted with the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Despite all of that, one player who was productive when healthy was Allen Hurns. At the age of 26, Hurns has been a quality player and should be a hot name in free agency.

Linebacker is a position of need, and the Cowboys have shown previous interest in NaVorro Bowman.
