The Cowboys ranked 23rd in total defense last season and gave up the most points in team history. They needed help in the worst way.

The rebuild began with the hiring of former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn to replace Mike Nolan, who lasted only one season. It continued in free agency with the additions of Tarell Basham, Keanu Neal, Carlos Watkins, Brent Urban and Damontae Kazee.

In the first round, Dallas selected Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons, trading back two spots to No. 12 overall after the top two cornerbacks, Jaycee Horn and Patrick Surtain, were drafted in front of them.

The Cowboys got their corner in the second round.

They took Kentucky’s Kelvin Joseph with the 44th overall choice. The Cowboys selected Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs in the second round last year.

They re-signed Jourdan Lewis to play the slot and have veteran Anthony Brown, giving them depth at the position.

  1. Dallas gave away Heisman trophy winner to their division rival for a third rounder . It will be a blast to watch the camera pan to Jerrah after Smith scores three TDs against the worst Secondary in the league . A third rounder is what your happy about Dallas fan wait till Smith lights you up twice a year hahahahahaha

  2. Dallas needs decent coaching on defense they had two of the best corners in the draft in my opinion last year and they made the team. They really did not get any playing time to speak of. So how can a young player develop without proper coaching and playing time in defense. Wake up Dallas the time is now.
