NFL Draft 2013 Dallas Cowboys: Focused on improving their Defense & Running Game
The Dallas Cowboys completed their 2013 NFL Draft on Saturday, by selecting a couple of players to add much-needed depth on the defensive side of the ball, along with a backup for their running back DeMarco Murray.
Here's how it all began day three of the draft in Dallas
Dallas Cowboys-Round 4 (no. 114 overall): B.W. Webb, CB, William and Mary The Cowboys made a nice selection here in Webb. He has extremely good feet, and his ability to hit and play receivers physical are assets that will serve him well at the next level. Still very raw in his coverage skills, he needs to add some weight to remain a fixture in Dallas' secondary moving forward.
Dallas Cowboys-Round 5 (no. 151 overall): Joseph Randle, RB, Oklahoma State
Dallas had multiple chances throughout the draft to select better backs than Randle, and there were some higher rated on the board when they selected him. Small hands and slower than an NFL back should be, Randle is an excellent pass blocker and decent in short yardage situations. Questions remain as to whether or not he could carry an NFL workload if needed successfully behind a porous offensive line in Dallas.
Dallas Cowboys-Round 6 (no. 185 overall): DeVonte Holloman, OLB, South Carolina
The Cowboys drafted for a position of need, but once again picked a far inferior talent than what was available to them on the board. Holloman isn't very strong, nor is he quick or agile. Holloman was one of the weaker performers at his position during the combine. Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine his role going into the 2013 season. Holloman may see extensive time, just because of the scarcity of depth at the position in Dallas, or he may never be heard from again.
