The 2014 NFL Draft is two months away, and the Dallas Cowboys are busy preparing their draft board. Dallas will be looking to address needs at numerous spots, and one of those positions is the offensive line. Dallas’ offensive line was better last season than in previous seasons, but they could still use an upgrade or at the very least some added depth. With that in mind, let’s take a look at five offensive linemen who could be fits for Dallas.

Cyril Richardson is a guard out of Baylor with freakish size. At 6-foot-5, 329-pounds, Richardson has the ability to engulf opposing defensive linemen. He is projected to go in the third or fourth round in the NFL Draft and would be a great fit for Dallas.

Morgan Moses is a tackle out of Virginia who moves extremely well for his size. Some scouts compare him to Ryan Clady, the talented tackle of the Denver Broncos. Moses is projected to go in the second round of the draft and is definitely worth a look from the Cowboys.

Gabe Jackson is a guard out of Mississippi State and has the rare combination of raw power and nimble feet. Jackson impressed scouts at the Combine where he bench pressed 225 pounds 30 times. Jackson is expected to go in the second round and would fit nicely in between Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick along the Cowboys’ offensive line.

Zach Martin is a tackle out of Notre Dame who is expected to go in the first round of the draft. While offensive line is probably not the most pressing need for the Cowboys, I believe Dallas should just focus on selecting the best available player. If Zach Martin is the top player on the Cowboys’ board, they should not hesitate to take him. I believe he will be a Pro Bowl caliber player for the next decade.

Taylor Lewan is a tackle out of Michigan who could be one of the top ten picks in the NFL Draft. If Lewan were to slip to the Cowboys at No. 16, however, he would be a tough player to pass on. Some scouts compare Lewan to Jake Long who is one of the top offensive linemen in the NFL.
