Cowboys Focusing On Offensive Line In The NFL Draft
Flozell Adams has played 12 seasons and will turn 35 in May. Even if he plays another season or two, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lists “offensive line depth” as the most important need. This draft probably won’t rival the 2008 draft when eight offensive tackles were taken in the first round and all started at some point in the season.
Last year, four were taken in the first round. In early mock drafts by draft analysts on ESPN and NFL.com, five to seven offensive tackles are projected for the first round.
Names mentioned possibly being drafted by Dallas are Maryland’s Bruce Campbell (6-foot-7, 310) and Iowa’s Bryan Bulaga (6-6, 312). When Marc Colombo missed seven games with injury, Doug Free was an effective replacement, but the Cowboys still need depth.
