Day 2 Targets

1. Damarious Randall, Free Safety, Arizona State

It isn’t that big of need for now, but the Cowboys haven’t had a ball-hawking safety in the defensive backfield in awhile. In hopes to change that, the Cowboys might be looking for that guy and one safety they have fallen in love with in this weak safety class is Damarious Randall. Here’s what Matt Miller of Bleacher Report had to say about Randall and the Cowboys.

If the Cowboys move up in the second round, which they did last year, don’t be surprised if Randall is the pick.

2. Tevin Coleman, Running Back, Indiana

If the Cowboys don’t draft a running back in the first round, the position will still likely be high on their wish list. That said, a second-round option for the Cowboys is Tevin Coleman, who would also be a perfect fit in Dallas’ zone-blocking scheme. Like Gurley, Coleman has a great combination of size and speed. Despite his skillset, the Cowboys would likely have to move up to bring him in.

3. Quinten Rollins, Cornerback, Miami (OH)

Like the running back situation, if the Cowboys do not draft a cornerback in the first round, they will likely look to the second or third round to address it. Quinten Rollins is a guy who shows a ton of potential to be a ballhawk at the cornerback position. However, he only played one year of football at Miami (OH) because he was a basketball player for the first three years. With quickness and an aggressive playing style, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli fell in love with this player.

4. Mario Edwards Jr., Defensive End, Florida State

In such a talented Florida State defense, Mario Edwards Jr. doesn’t get a ton of potential. Although I have him as a defensive end, many people believe Edwards Jr. could bulk up and play some defensive tackle if need be. Edwards Jr. is a strong player. He does a great job at using his hands and he shows the ability to take on double teams in the trenches.
