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 the team's young talented offensive line.
Henry averaged 5.8 yards per carry in 2014 for 990 yards with 11 touchdowns. He added five receptions for 133 yards, too. The 6-foot-3, 241-pounder could be in store for a huge 2015 season with T.J. Yeldon and Amari Cooper in the NFL while Alabama fields a new quarterback. That has been the trend for the Crimson Tide in years past with players like Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and Eddie Lacy.
Henry finished the 2013 season in impressive fashion, while T.J. Yeldon wasn't as dominant as many thought he would be. Henry showed what he is capable of when he racked up 382 yards on only 36 carries with three touchdowns in 2013. In the Sugar Bowl, Henry had 100 yards and a score on only eight carries.

The Cowboys can't count on Sean Lee to stay healthy, while Rolando McClain is capable of going AWOL at anytime. It would be wise for Dallas to have better linebacker depth and talent.
In 2014, Frost had 87 tackles, three passes broken up, three forced fumbles, 3.5 sacks and 10 tackles for a loss. The 6-foot-2, 234-pounder is a tough in-the-box defender who could use some development against the pass.
