Jerry Jones has once again made some of the most questionable draft picks in team history with this group of guys. After stating multiple times leading up to draft day that the offensive line issues were not a factor to him; Jones drafted center Travis Frederick with his first pick.
This pick infuriated much of Cowboys Nation, but to the rest of us makes perfect sense considering Frederick played on a Wisconsin Badgers offensive line that featured All-American running back Montee Ball.
Now with Frederick and the addition of 5th round pick Oklahoma State Cowboys running back Joseph Randle; the Cowboys should go from the bottom of the league running the ball to the top. Randle was by far the smartest pick Jones made in this years draft after DeMarco Murray suffered his second injury in as many years that hampered the Cowboys running game.
Along with Randle, rookie free agent running back Kendial Lawrence has also joined the team after having an amazing 2012 season with the Missouri Tigers. These two backs and Frederick should relieve enough pressure for quarterback Tony Romo to be able to find his play makers down the field to put the explosiveness back in the Cowboys offense.
The Cowboys second area of concern from the 8-8 season has also been addressed with the amount of new defensive faces that have been added to the team. Third round pick J.J. Wilcox and rookie free agent Jakar Hamilton will have the most attention since the Cowboys secondary presented a ghostly effect last season after the injury to Barry Church.
