The Dallas Cowboys are heading into what is shaping up to be a hectic offseason. Over the last couple of months, the Cowboys have already undergone a variety of changes to the coaching staff.

Most importantly, Dallas moved on from Jason Garrett and replaced him with Mike McCarthy. Of the previous regime, only Kellen Moore was retained for McCarthy’s coaching staff.

In a little over a month, the free-agency period is going to be underway in the NFL. Aside from trying to sign Dak Prescott to an extension, the Cowboys also need to address the safety position.

Throughout the 2019 season, it was evident that Dallas had a huge drop off in the backend of their defense. That makes Grant Delpit a prime candidate for the Cowboys in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Delpit is being touted as one of the best safeties available in the upcoming draft. With that in mind, here is why the Cowboys can’t afford to pass on Delpit in the 2020 NFL Draft.
