The Dallas Cowboys defense under Monte Kiffin last year was a disaster.
The Cowboys have since demoted their now former defensive co-ordinator, but are still looking to add depth and talent to an under performing section of their team.
One of the potential targets for the Cowboys in the first-round is All-American, Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who has been incredible during the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.
NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline wrote today:
"Word at the combine has the Dallas Cowboys going defensive front seven early and often in the draft. Word is Aaron Donald is a possibility for the team in round one."
Donald left tongues wagging earlier and impressed everybody in Indianapolis. The No. 22 overall prospect, was unofficially clocked at 4.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash, a jaw-dropping time for an interior defensive linemen, even one with less than ideal size at 6-feet-1 and 285 pounds.
Last season Donald picked up the Outland Trophy, Chuck Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Award and CBSSports.com Defensive Player of the Year after recording 59 tackles, 28.5 tackles for loss, 11 sacks and four forced fumbles in 13 games.
Donald's body type looks like it will limit him to playing in a 4-3 system, which is perfect for a team like Dallas.
