IRVING, Texas -- Part 2 of the Dallas Cowboys' Twitter mailbag is ready. In it we discuss: Why the Cowboys would even consider drafting offense in the first round. Why the Cowboys could draft offensive line in the first round. Why the coaching staff could look a lot different. Why I think the Cowboys would pass on Teddy Bridgewater.

With free agency entering the final stages, we'll review the Dallas Cowboys' past five free-agency classes. We end the series with a look at 2013. Players signed: Will Allen and Justin Durant Starts earned: Eight Analysis: Allen was signed as a veteran to improve the free safety position. The Cowboys had some younger players at those spots and Allen was supposed to bridge the gap. Yet, Allen started just two games and the team went with rookie J.
It was interesting to listen to Danny White talk the other day on Sirius/XM radio about Tony Romo. White and Romo are similar in some respects. White failed to get his team to a Super Bowl, despite three consecutive trips to the NFC title game in the 1980s. Romo has yet to get his team past the second-round of the postseason. Romo has better numbers than White, because he plays in a pass-happy era. But here was White on Wednesday talking about how Romo is the perfect fit for this Dallas Cowboys team and that blame shouldn’t be placed solely on No.

IRVING, Texas -- We had another solid chat on Wednesday with a lot of draft questions. We talked about trading up (I don’t see it happening), selecting Anthony Barr or Kony Ealy if both are available at No. 16 (Barr), taking a chance on Dominique Easley, the extra time leading up to the draft (hate it) and my all-time favorite Cowboy. If you want to read the whole chat, click here. I was also asked about drafting a quarterback. R Lank, Md.
