At the end of the season, Parcells said he would likely not attend the combine and just review the practice tape and interviews on video.
Generally coaches like to use the combine to interview players personally.
However, Parcells' absence would not be out of the norm for him. During his coaching career, his presence at the combine has been
intermittent at best.
From the Cowboys' point a view, the combine is a useful tool in the decision on whether to draft a player but not the deciding factor. They
will attend personal workouts and also bring players into Dallas for interviews and private workouts.
The major focuses for the Cowboys in the draft are running back, offensive line and defensive line.
Some players who might be available when the Cowboys pick 22nd in the first round are running backs Steven Jackson, Chris Perry, Greg Jones
and Kevin Jones, offensive tackle Shawn Andrews, defensive tackle Randy Starks and defensive end Antwan Odom.
Early reports also have the Cowboys very much interested in Northern Illinois RB Michael Turner and Ohio State's Maurice Clarett.
