The Dallas Cowboys defense played superbly in 2018, finishing the season ranked No. 7 in all of football. But there's always room for improvement in the NFL, and the Cowboys aren't that great on the interior of the defensive line.
Tyrone Crawford and Antwuan Woods started at defensive tackle for the Boys last season and they did an adequate job holding the line of scrimmage. But the duo only combined for seven total sacks and six tackles for a loss. They could use a big guy to help bolster their production at D-tackle, and who better than this guy?
Could you imagine how awesome the Cowboys defensive line would be if Dexter Lawrence fell to 58?— Dan Rogers (@DannyPhantom24) April 1, 2019

Insert Dexter Lawrence, the 6-foot-4, 342-pound giant out of Clemson.
Not only would Lawrence add immense size and power to the Cowboys' defensive line, he would solidify the interior, which is something the Cowboys have been trying to do for years.
Dallas, as Cowboys fans well know, is without a first-round pick in this year's draft, but there's a chance Lawrence will still be available when they pick at No. 58 mainly because the 2019 defensive tackle class is historically deep. Lawrence would be a sure-fire first-round pick if he was entering the draft in any other year, which makes this a must if he falls anywhere near the No. 58 pick.
Lawrence was a force for Clemson during all three of his seasons spent there. He accumulated 131 total tackles, 18 tackles for a loss, and 10 sacks during his collegiate career.
He was also instrumental in the Tigers' National Championship run this past season, although he did miss the playoffs due to a suspension.
The Cowboys weren't able to get past the Divisional Round of the playoffs in 2018, due in large part to Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson combining for 238 yards on the ground against them. Adding a beast like Lawrence could prevent that from happening again, something the Dallas faithful is sure to be excited about.
