Jerry Jones made it abundantly clear that the Dallas Cowboys were looking for talent in the 2010 NFL draft. Picking the best player, rather than concentrating on filling holes, is a mantra recited by a lot of NFL teams this time of year. But the Cowboys probably adhered to it as much as any team.
Heading into the draft with glaring needs along the offensive line Dallas contented itself with taking another gamble with a renegade by choosing Dez Bryant the mercurial wide receiver from Oklahoma State. Apparently the Cowboys are looking to send a message to certain other guys on their squad while giving Tony Romo an explosive target.
From there the Cowboys went defense by choosing a linebacker and a cornerback in quick succesion. In fact, Dallas completely ignored the offensive line and the defensive backfield for the rest of the draft. Expect the Dallas Cowboys to be signing some free agents somewhere along the line here.
