Two of the key areas the Dallas Cowboys are focusing on this offseason are on the offensive and defensive lines.
RanchReport.com reported after the Senior Bowl, and also after the NFL Combine, that Bill Parcells, Jerry Jones, and most Cowboys scouts involved in the drafting process, were all closely watching the trenches when given the opportunity to inspect talent for the upcoming NFL Draft.
That trend has continued this month, as members of the Cowboys organization venture out to various pro days and individual workouts.
Earlier this week, the Cowboys saw in person what Utah guard Chris Kemoteatu had to offer when the offensive lineman worked out privately for the team.
Kemoteatu, who stands in at 6-3, 341 pounds, is the type of lineman Bill Parcells likes. He's big, he can move, and most importantly, he has the right attitude to succeed in the National Football League.
The offensive lineman used to play on the defensive side of the ball, and even to this day, he finds defense to be more exciting.
"Defense is a lot more fun," Kemoteatu told Scout.com at the NFL Combine. "You find some little things on offense that make it fun."
An interesting side note, during his junior season with the Utes, a defensive player bent Kemoteatu over a pile, and he thought it was a cheap shot.
As a result, Kemoteatu wound up kicking the player in the face.
"I over reacted in the heat of the battle. I think I have matured from that. You have to be a different person on the field," said Kemoteatu.
Think Bill Parcells doesn't like that kind of attitude?
