I'm sure you're getting plenty of these questions now that the Cowboys' season is at an end, but what do you see as the biggest needs for the upcoming draft? I feel it's defensive tackle, safety, then TE/interior lineman in that order (depending on whether or not it looks like Travis Frederick will be able to play next season). - CHARLES BALBOA / LONG VALLEY, NJ
Bryan: Those appear to be good starting points. Depending on what happens at defensive end with DeMarcus Lawrence and linebacker with Sean Lee might influence you as well.
Rob: Sounds like Frederick's outlook for a 2019 return looks very good, according to head coach Jason Garrett. I'm not dodging your question at all, but free agency (who they keep and who moves on) will determine a lot of their draft needs. Wide receiver could be a need even after the Amari Cooper trade because Cole Beasley and Tavon Austin have expiring contracts. We'll see what happens there. Defensive line depth always should be a target through the draft, both at tackle and edge rusher.
Even though the 2018-2019 Dallas Cowboys are eliminated from the playoffs, what are the priorities for this young team, not only to stay hungry but also to be competitive for years to come? - LUTHER JOHNSON / MONROEVILLE, PA
Bryan: Have to continue to find ways to build around this quarterback. I might be alone here, but you have something in Dak Prescott and I am working hard to see that through in the future.
Rob: They need their young players, those first- and second-year guys, to take a step forward next season. The Cowboys don't spend a lot on signing outside free agents and they don't have a first-round pick. They should have a solid amount of cap space to try to re-sign some of their own top guys – DeMarcus Lawrence figures to be a top priority – and then look to draft well. But they need further development from within.
