It was odd that the Cowboys completely neglected the safety position this offseason. They have such a big need there that they could've taken a player to upgrade that spot in the first round.

The Cowboys neglected the running back position, failing to find a replacement for DeMarco Murray. I imagine they'll target a back early in the 2016 NFL Draft - perhaps someone from Jerry Jones' alma mater.
The Cowboys have taken a risky approach to the running back position in 2015. Adding an impact runner in the 2016 NFL Draft makes sense to get more out of their young talented offensive line.
Elliott (6-0, 225) was the workhorse who carried the Buckeyes to the National Championship in 2014. He destroyed Wisconsin (20-220-2), Alabama (20-230-2) and Oregon (36-246-4) in the final three games to lead Ohio State. Elliott averaged 6.9 yards per carry on the year for 1,878 yards with 18 touchdowns. He had 28 receptions for 220 yards, too. Elliott showed speed, cutting ability and a knack to pick up yards after contact.

The Cowboys get some interior defensive line talent.
Missouri has been a factory for defensive line talent in recent years, and Augusta looks like the player who will be the program's model for the 2016 NFL Draft. Shane Ray and Markus Golden received all the attention in 2014, but Augusta and the interior of the defensive line had a fine season as well. The sophomore totaled 23 tackles with 4.5 tackles for a loss, one sack, one interception and two forced fumbles on the year. He was disruptive at the point of attack. Augusta notched two sacks as a freshman backup in 2013. The 6-foot-4, 300-pounder has upside with size and speed.
