More pressing need for Cowboys: DE or CB?


  • During the 2016 season, the Cowboys had a glaring need for an edge rusher, ranking a lowly 25th in cumulative team pass-rush grades.
  • Losing 1,419 snaps at the cornerback position through the departures Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr gives rise to another glaring concern.
  • Cornerback has leapt up the team’s list of priorities, but pass rush remains a concern, with no defender notching more than 38 total pressures last season, or less than half the league-leading total of Khalil Mack (96).
