#16 Dallas Cowboys: Kony Ealy, DE Mizzou

Rory’s Take: Adding Melton in theory solves the three tech question, but what they still lack is outside pass rush. Ealy may not be the most explosive, but he is a solid all-around 43 defensive end that seemingly fits well into this system.

Chase’s Take: Kony Ealy was the star of Mizzou’s rise to national prominence and a spot in the SEC Championship as one of the most dominate outside pass rushers in the SEC. With Ware out of Dallas it just makes sense for the Cowboys to go this route.
