Offensive Tackle: Flozell Adams should be back to cement things at left tackle, but improvement must be made on the right side, either by Rob Petitti or a replacement. Early analysis for the upcoming NFL Draft yields the Cowboys' first draft pick could very well be a tackle. Without question, team scouts will be evaluating offensive tackle prospects in the upcoming Senior Bowl and the NFL combine.
Safety: That the Cowboys considered bringing Darren Woodson out of retirement for the playoffs is a sign they are not comfortable with what they have at safety. Keith Davis was a solid safety but he is still viewed more of a great special teams player by Bill Parcells. In addition, the Cowboys would like a safety with more speed and better coverage ability to compliment strong safety Roy Williams.
Inside linebacker: With Dat Nguyen set to retire, the Cowboys need a starter opposite Bradie James at inside linebacker and quality backups for depth purposes. Undrafted free agent Ryan Fowler is the current starter at inside linebacker.
Kicker: The Cowboys made four changes at kicker in 2005. They need someone they can count on in 2006. Shaun Suisham will get a look, but he is not the answer. Look for this need to likely be addressed in free agency as opposed to the draft.
Wide Receiver: Keyshawn Johnson and Terry Glenn are still productive, but they are aging. Third receiver Patrick Crayton had a strong start but tailed off at the end. A speed receiver for the future is a need.
