Today, we shall attempt to narrow down the defensive draft pick possibilities that the Dallas Cowboys will target in the NFL Draft.

This is the second installment of my two-part series. Examining which players would be a good fit for the Dallas Cowboys in the upcoming draft.

You can find the first installment right here. Click on the link and give me your opinions in the comments section.

The Dallas Cowboys have been greatly bolstered by their defense in the past two seasons. Allow me to repeat myself from the first Dallas Cowboys installment.

"During that period, the only offensive position they used a first-round selection on was offensive tackles Bryan Bulaga and Derek Sherrod. During McCarthy’s tenure as head coach, the Packers had 12 first-round picks, with 10 of those being devoted to the defense."

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Dallas Cowboys chose a defensive player with their first round pick of the draft. There is no such thing as having too many defensive game changers.

The Dallas Cowboys defense is steered by Micah Parsons. He is the unbreakable force of the defensive unit. A true unicorn, if ever there was one.

The best elite edge player and the best off the ball linebacker on the roster. He’s a combination of Bobby Wagner and Von Miller.

With this draft, the Dallas Cowboys will have the opportunity to add some game wreckers they can help elevate their defense to the elite level status.
