PICKIN’ AT SWEET SIXTEEN: Your 2014 Dallas Cowboys Draft Guide | NFL Prospect Rankings: Offense | Special Feature

Dallas Cowboys Depth Chart - 2013 offense

Offensively, the Dallas Cowboys are in pretty good shape going into the 2014-2015 NFL season. If everyone stays healthy, the only void from the offseason would be finding a replacement for Miles Austin. Fortunately, the 2014 NFL Draft is loaded with wide receivers.

The problem is, lately, staying healthy is easier said than done. If recurring injuries or other health issues surface once again, the team needs to be prepared. Regular readers don’t have to be reminded about Tony Romo’s back surgeries, what happens when DeMarco Murray goes down, Dez Bryant’s back spasms, Lance Dunbar’s hot then hobble tendency, or the lingering prospect of an issue with LG Ronald Leary. That’s not to mention the unmentionable … will Kyle Orton return to the field or return $3 million to Jerry Jones’s checking account and then retire?

Lastly, there is a good argument that the Dallas Cowboys need depth along the interior of the offensive line.

Let’s take a look at the top offensive prospects available in the 2014 NFL Draft, graded and ranked by their projected round. I’ve included the current 2014-2015 Dallas Cowboys Roster to make it easier for you to see who’s already on the team. As a final touch, the Dallas Cowboys depth chart is shown in the top photo and below.
