The latest 2017 NFL Mock Draft expands from one to two rounds just as the list of team needs rose or shrunk following moves made early in free agency.
Here's a closer look at four of those teams, otherwise known as members of the NFC East.
Dallas Cowboys (Early selections: 28, 60)
3. Right tackle
Analysis: The underrated part of last season's NFC East title was how Dallas thrived despite missing players and lacking great playmakers along the defensive line.
Signing former Redskin Stephen Paea isn't likely to move the needle. Selecting pass rusher Charles Harris or interior option Malik McDowell might. ... Dallas lost safety Barry Church and cornerback Morris Claiborne in free agency. Signing veteran defensive back Nolan Carrol helps, but plenty more is required. ... Right tackle Doug Free's retirement opens up the possibility of the Cowboys spending another early selection on the offensive line. ...
New York Giants (Early selections: 23 and 55)
1. Left tackle
3. Tight end
Analysis: Still having an issue with protecting Eli Manning's blindside despite spending a top 10 selection on Ereck Flowers in 2015 is no way to go through life.
Several tackle prospects, including Garett Bolles and Ryan Ramczyk are in play at 23. ...Running back doesn't make this list despite Rashard Jennings' exit. That doesn't mean Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen are enough for a 16-game schedule. ... At some point, the Giants must come up with a quarterback replacement for the 36-year-old Manning.
Spending a second or third round pick on a Davis Webb or Nate Peterman might make sense, but would New York want to use a high pick for a future concern?
Philadelphia Eagles (Early selections: 14, 43)
2. Running back
3. Defensive tackle
Analysis: Getting Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith to sign on the dotted line early in free agency removed wide receiver from atop Philly's needs list. ...
Losing defensive tackle Bennie Logan in free agency could shift their plans, but corner remains the top defensive concern. Good news: This class is loaded at corner with 5-8 prospects potentially going off the board in the first round. ... Running backs Dalvin Cook and Christian McCaffrey could be tempting at 14.
Washington Redskins (Early selections: 17, 49)
1. Nose tackle/defensive line
2. Left guard
3. Inside linebacker
Analysis: We'll see how Terrelle Pryor fares, but between his addition and the return of Josh Doctson, the Redskins have enough firepower on paper to replace the loss of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. ... At best the exchange of players along the defensive line is a push, which isn't nearly enough for a unit that labored last season.
Here's the problem: This draft doesn't appear loaded with nose tackles worthy of round 1-2 selection. ... Best player available scenarios could come into play considering the amount of interesting cornerback, tight end and running back options in the early rounds. Washington arguably doesn't need help in those areas for 2017, but talent is talent.
