(INDIANAPOLIS) — Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is looking to improve his offense come April’s NFL Draft. The Cowboys will have the 18th overall pick and Garrett wants to improve his rushing attack.
“It’s certainly an area where we have to get better. Whenever you’re near the bottom of the league rushing the football, you want to improve that area,” Garrett said. “It starts with the offensive line and we believe strongly that other people contribute to running the football.”
Garrett will have a new defensive coordinator in Monte Kiffin this year. The Cowboys hired the 72-year-old coordinator after the firing of Rob Ryan. Garrett enjoyed having Ryan as a coach and believes he will do a great job with Saints head coach Sean Payton.
“Didn’t suprise me one bit that he’d get a job,” Garrett said. “I think it’s a great fit for Sean Payton down there in New Orleans, Rob (Ryan) will do a great job for him. Knowing both those guys fairly well, I think the match is really a good one.”
