The Dallas Cowboys are likely to take a close look at defensive tackles at the draft combine this week. With Monte Kiffin taking over the defense, the Cowboys may look to find a Warren Sapp type player in the draft, which is good news since this is deep draft in that position according to Mel Kiper. "It's a loaded group," Kiper said. "You can also find defensive tackles in rounds two, three and four. If you need nose tackles, if you need three-techniques, you got it all covered in this draft."

Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin has told players to watch tape of the Seattle Seahawks defense to receive an idea of what his defense will look like in 2013. "I kind of asked him what our philosophy and what the look of our defense was going to be, and as a prime example he said, 'Go see Seattle film and you'll probably learn a lot from those guys and just watch how they move on the field.'" CB Brandon Carr said. "That's some homework for me to do for the next couple of weeks."

Dallas Cowboys DE Jason Hatcher said he could play either defensive end or tackle in the team's scheme under defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. Hatcher figures to be an important part of the defense in 2013. "He still doesn't know where I'm going to play yet," Hatcher said of Kiffin. "I don't know if I'm going to be the Warren Sapp in his 4-3 defense or not. He does have high hopes for me. I'm going to be a big part of this defense, so I'm excited about this role I'll have in this upcoming season. I'm going to embrace it and be the best I can be." If Hatcher plays inside he might have to stay at about 295 pounds to deal with the pounding of taking on opposing guards and centers. Hatcher is at 295 pounds now; however, he would like to lose some weight if he plays off the edge.
