The 2021 NFL Draft is approaching, however the NFL Free Agency period is coming sooner. The free agency period for the Dallas Cowboys is one of many questions. Do they keep their face of the franchise quarterback in Dak Prescott, or let him go? How much should they spend on free agents with multiple guys coming up on deals in the near future? The biggest question is, are we close enough to a Super Bowl to go all in and take a two-year window run?

There is not a right answer for any of those, but Dallas seems to be far more focused on free agency than the NFL draft. In a domino type effect. With the rest of the NFC East also having their own questions, Dallas could look at this as an opportunity to try and break the bank and take advantage, getting into the playoffs just by winning in a weak division.

Where will Cowboys look to upgrade?

The Cowboys are seemingly set at offensive line, wide receiver, and running back. This is good news for them, as those are the top-dollar positions currently in the NFL minus quarterback. So in a year when the cap ceiling shrunk, they don’t have to worry about breaking the bank on a maybe a mid-level player.

There are however questions still in the secondary, linebacking corps, and you can go either way on what they should do via the tight end position.

This of course is all pending they come up with a plan for Prescott. The Cowboys have not been in a who is our quarterback going to be next season situation for quite some time, after a long run with Tony Romo and several good years with Prescott. The positive here is, if they don’t want to pay Prescott there are options in the NFL Draft.

Let’s take a look at who could fill up some holes, and change their draft drastically.
