There's little doubt that defensive tackle and cornerback are two of the biggest needs for the Dallas Cowboys headed into the 2003 season, and the first three players who have scheduled visits to Valley Ranch this week seem to confirm that very notion.
The Cowboys have tentatively set dates with DT DeWayne Robertson, CB Marcus Trufant, and CB
Most teams in need of help in the secondary have coveted Trufant and Newman for quite some time, including the Cowboys. As it stands now, it is believed that Trufant may be more of an attractive selection for Jerry Jones, considering that he'll likely be available should the Cowboys trade down in the draft.
Trufant has visits also scheduled with Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Seattle, and possibly St. Louis.
Newman is scheduled to visit Dallas, Detroit, Chicago, and St. Louis.
Robertson, a standout defensive tackle out of Kentucky, excelled at the NFL combine earlier this year and has been drawing massive interest from several teams in the NFC East, including the Cowboys and the Redskins.
Interestingly enough, one team pursuing Robertson the hardest is the New Orleans Saints, who won't go on the clock until the 16th selection in the first round.
CowboyUpdate has been told that the Saints are extremely high on Robertson and want to move up to get him. Certainly with the Saints owning 16th and 17th picks in the first round, it would be easy for them to make such a move.
The Bears and the Cowboys are the two teams that have already been in talks with New Orleans about executing such a deal.
