06:22 PM ET 04.24 | Everyone makes a big deal about the first round of the NFL Draft, and for good reason. But a lot of teams live and die, or even redeem themselves in the second round. The Cowboys were then absent from drafting a second-round pick in 2012. Dallas needs to focus on key areas to build a championship caliber team. Unfortunately the key to drafting a lot of key players, is drafting a lot. Dallas only has six picks in Thursday's NFL Draft, while the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers are loaded with 13. The 49ers built their team through the draft. For some reason, Jerry Jones and Co. continue to try and build through free agency. This year, they don't have the money. They must draft well and build from within.

MARs,

I don't know how you? personaly feel about JJ keeping Romo for the long haul,but i gotta say,I would keep him this year and go for another QB.

I like Romo so I'm fine with the contract but I do think Dallas needs to start looking for a replacement some time soon.

Dallas fans out there can't have any faith at all that Jones will make the right moves.

If the Cowboys live or die based on who Jerrah drafts in the second round I would be concerned, very concerned. This doesn't seem to be the draft to hang your hat on.

Sorry Otis

The Cowboys will do enough to get hopes up

"Will the Cowboys live and die by the second round?"

Can't they just die? At least, can't Jerry Jones just die?

April 25, 2013  10:44 AM ET

Well there is always room to hope. Lets face it JJ has been wrong so many time the law of aversges says he should get one right.

April 25, 2013  12:53 PM ET

live or die by the draft..... we're screwed then. JJ has shown his "football mind" the last decade and this team just gets worse with age.

April 25, 2013  07:40 PM ET

Yeah, right - that's really going to happen. The Cowboys (that is, Jerry Jones) have been so successful in the draft the last many years. JJ is essentially a huckster whose idea of being a GM is the football version of "Let's make a Deal'. Making deals and getting his face-lift in the media is more important than doing the work to get a good draft and build a winning team.He's the NFL's answer to Donald Trump, only without the charm. Boycott the Cowboys until JJ hires a real GM.
