07:52 PM ET 04.18 | The Dallas Cowboys cannot afford to have another poor draft. The 2013 season might be the most important season of late for Jerry Jones' team. Superstars like DeMarcus Ware and Tony Romo are not getting any younger. Dez Bryant and Miles Austin aren't going to throw the ball to themselves, and DeMarco Murray can't block for himself. So what's next? Hopefully the Cowboys can plug some holes that need to be filled before we can even start to discuss a division title or playoff scenario. Dallas must make next week's NFL Draft productive in what looks like not a very deep draft class. Dallas must address some serious issues including, but certainly not limited to, offensive line, defensive line, outside linebacker and safety.

I've never heard of Sport DFW.

Obviously, I need to look into their fine work. I'm missing some deep probing research right here.

As opposed to the Cowboys needing help from the NHL draft?

No ****.

The Cowboys are wasting 22% of the salary cap on dead money and penalties from a few years ago. With that much of your cap space gone (and with nary a player to show for said cap space) obviously free agency isn't really an option, at all. You still have to field a team, even if you're operating with less cap space than every team not names the Oakland Raiders (30% cap space wasted on dead money).

Long story short, Dallas has a number of holes to fill (offensive line, offensive line, offensive line, safety, defensive line, wide receiver, running back) and either they hit a bunch of home runs in the draft (unlikely) or we get a whole bunch of Doug Free and Jeremy Parnell and Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner and Cole Beasley.

It's not gonna be a fun year for the Cowboys unless a miracle happens in the Draft.

In a perfect world yes. Unfortunately the Jaguars, Bills, Cardinals and Browns never seem to get the memo.

Unfortunately, the Cowboys' most pressing need can't be met in the draft or free agency. They desperately need a real GM - someone who at least has a clue and an interest in winning, not just getting his name and picture (face lift and all) in the media. Boycott the Cowboys until Jerry Jones hires a real GM.
