As the Dallas Cowboys get closer to draft day, they are examining many options. There are a lot of players in this draft who would make Dallas better, but Dallas needs players who can make huge impacts from day one. They need players who can make everyone else better because of the way they play the game. With that said, here are my top five players who could be available for Dallas and would be able to make a huge impact for the Cowboys.

If Dallas selects a defensive lineman in the first round, he will automatically become the best pass rusher for Dallas. Kony Ealy is no exception. He isn’t the best defensive lineman in the draft, but he would make a huge impact.

Many people believe the player Dallas wants more than any other in this draft is Aaron Donald. I believe Donald would be a perfect fit for Dallas, and if he is there, he would be a great pick. The reason I have him fourth on this list is because while he would make an impact for Dallas in 2014, he plays the same position where Henry Melton would likely be the starter.

3. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Dallas’ second biggest need is safety, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is one of the best safeties in the draft. Clinton-Dix could come in and start from day one, and he would bring a huge upgrade to the secondary.

2. Calvin Pryor

The other safety who should go in round one is Calvin Pryor. Pryor would solidify the secondary, but maybe more importantly he would bring an attitude to the defense. He loves to make the big hit and is constantly around the ball.

While Anthony Barr is a LB, the Cowboys would draft him with the intention of making him a defensive end. Most scouts agree that Barr would have little trouble making the adjustment. He would give Dallas an edge rusher that they sorely need, and given his experience at LB, he could cover the opposing running backs when needed.
