2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cowboys Still Looking At Alfonzo Dennard

The Dallas Cowobys have are set with the No. 14 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and their pick is still going to be a defensive back and CBS Sports Rob Rang has the Cowboys selecting a defensive back:

Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska Cornhuskers: The secondary issues for the Cowboys are far from a secret and are an area that must be addressed this offseason. Dennard would probably be a top-10 pick if he was a little taller (listed at 5-10, but he's closer to 5-8) because of his fluid hips and tremendous ballskills -- has the talent to work his way into the starting line-up and replace aging Terrance Newman as one of the starters on the outside.

The selection of Dennard has been the most common pick for the Cowboys from the various mock drafts from around the Internet. The pick makes sense since the Cowboys secondary has been lacking players for the past few years, but it has gotten to the point that they are in a desperate need of upgrading their secondary.
