Outside of Romo, Murray, Bryant, Witten and Tyron Smith, pretty much all parts of the Dallas roster could use help. The lines are in the worst shape, though.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Hayden provides some veteran defensive line depth

2012

Hayden will provide depth for the Bengals across their defensive line.

2011

Will provide depth along the defensive line.

2010

Likely destined for the practice squad but could get a shot if injuries open up a spot.

2009

Depth option at defensive tackle who made the leap from the practice squad for an eventual late-season debut. He'll have to earn the opportunity to remain on the roster during training camp.

2008

Hayden will push to stick as a reserve option at defensive tackle this summer -- a weak spot for the Panthers -- after being selected in the sixth-round of April's draft. Hayden was a solid run stuffer for the Badgers during his career at Wisconsin, but he'll need bulk up a bit in order to maintain his effectiveness against bigger offensive linemen at the NFL level.
