The 2024 NFL Scouting Combine is upon us with drills from Feb. 29 through March 3. Every team will be aiming to improve their roster and for the Dallas Cowboys, they'll be trying to figure out what holes need to be filled in order to take their next step.

Most experts believe they will be looking for an offensive lineman, with left tackle being their primary need. Tyron Smith has stated he would like to return but the injury concerns might be too great for Dallas to bring him back. That's why we kick off our list of six draft targets for Dallas with a look at two of the top tackles in the class.

6. Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

Listed at 6-foot-6 and 312 pounds, Jordan Morgan is the ideal size to play tackle in the NFL. He spent his entire time at Arizona playing left tackle and while he was never elite at run blocking, it was hard not to be impressed with his pass protection.

Morgan possesses enough athleticism to handle speed rushers but he's also strong enough to deal with the bull-rush. He's not a splashy player by any means but that's not always a bad thing. Morgan simply gets the job done and has a very low floor in the NFL. Whoever drafts him should be able to plug him in at left tackle and not worry about the position for the next decade.

At the Combine, it will be interesting to see how well he moves. If he comes in and runs every drill with excellent fluidity, he could climb up draft boards in a hurry.
