2014NFL Draft Preview: Dallas Cowboys

Could Dallas be looking at a target for Romo in round one? - Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Taking a look at what could be in store for the Dallas Cowboys come draft day

Over the next several days, Big Blue View will be taking a look at each of the New York Giants' NFC East opponents and who they could be targeting in the upcoming NFL DraftAfter looking at the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday, let's check out the Dallas Cowboys.

Record last year: 8-8, second in NFC East

How the season ended: Dallas fell to Philadelphia in Week 17, missing out on the playoffs and a divisional title as a result.

Biggest loss: Cap-strapped, it's tough to pick just one of the many departures from the Cowboys as the most significant loss. Despite this, losing one of the NFL's most feared pass rusher with no guaranteed replacement is a tough pill to swallow. Demarcus Ware is in Denver, leaving a massive hole on an already troubled defense.

Biggest gain: Former Bears' defensive tackle Henry Melton joined the Cowboys on a one-year deal to help beef up the middle of the defense. After changing to a 4-3 defense last year, the Cowboys need 4-3 personnel, Melton is a start.

NFL Draft: With Ware gone, and a defense that was already in dire need of help, few would argue if the Cowboys spent nearly every draft pick to help improve the "Big D" in Dallas. Anthony Barr could be worth a look, or Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix.

Sleeper selection: While defense is a need, Dallas has a few holes on offense, too. No. 16 may be a golden opportunity to snag a play-making wide receiver to pair opposite Dez Bryant. Another position to ponder? Quarterback. NFL Network's Mike Mayock said in a recent conference call he wouldn't be surprised to see the Cowboys use a "fairly high pick" on a signal caller with Tony Romo now 34 years old.
