Tony Romo's above-average play keeps the Cowboys just barely in the NFC playoff picture every year, but this is a team that lacks talent. Three fifths of the offensive line is questionable, wide receiver depth is weak, the entire defensive line is a mess and the best player on defense (Sean Lee) can't stay healthy. The most pressing needs in Dallas, though, exist in the defensive and offensive lines.

The Dallas defensive tackle rotation was extremely weak in 2013, as 16-game starter Nick Hayden is so subpar he was out of the league in 2012. His backups were arguably even worse. What's more, breakout tackle Jason Hatcher might walk in free agency after posting 11 sacks. After allowing a pitiful 4.7 yards per carry and 17 touchdowns on the ground in 2013, Dallas could particularly use a couple tackles who specialize in stuffing the run.
