The Cowboys need a quarterback of the future.  Tony Romo is 36 and hasn’t shown that he can stay healthy.  However, they also need to add depth for the defensive line.  Particularly at defensive end.  The Cowboys still have options though at defensive end.  They could more free agents or take one later in the draft.  So quarterback is the biggest need.  Carson Wentz might be the best quarterback in the draft and it will be hard for the Cowboys to pass him up.  Even if he doesn’t play much as a rookie.  The Cowboys could set themselves up at the position for the next decade.  They have yet to sign a free agent quarterback of note.  So there is a need for depth as well.   .
