After failing to make it past the opening round of the NFL playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys are ready to get back to work. There are some changes including a new defensive coordinator, as Mike Zimmer replaces Dan Quinn — who is now the head coach in Washington.

The Cowboys can also use more depth on their roster and they could look to the trade market in order to fill those needs. In 2023, they did this and landed Stephon Gilmore and Brandin Cooks. Now, we look ahead to 2024 with three players they could realistically target.

3. Davon Godchaux, DT

Micah Parsons made it clear what he thinks the Cowboys need. The star pass-rusher said they need a 330-pound defensive tackle — and he's right. He added the nose tackle needed to be "nasty" which is definitely a trait these guys can use on the line of scrimmage.

One player who could fit the bill is Davon Godchaux, currently of the New England Patriots. Godchaux is a seven-year pro who could be on the move since the team is transitioning to a new coach. As they rebuild, they might be willing to shed his $11 million contract.

For a typical nose tackle, that might sound like a lot but Godchaux produces at a much higher rate than most 330-pounders. In seven years, he has 362 tackles and 5.5 sacks. During his three seasons in New England, he's registered 183 tackles, with seven of them going for a loss.

Dallas needs someone who can eat up blockers and shut down the run game. Godchaux could be that player for them.
