Cowboys’ executive vice president Stephen Jones isn’t happy with the team's running back situation, and plans on doing something about it in the draft.
The Cowboys are happy about DeMarco Murray, but after that they feel there is a big drop off. The often injured Felix Jones never filled his vast potential; however, his time is winding down as well as his body.
Jones was quite explicit about Felix, and he went on to talk about what is needed for success at the position.
“Obviously Felix wasn’t as good as we would have liked,” Jones said, via Rainer Sabin of dallasnews.com.
“In this league, you have to have more than one back,” he said. “Obviously, we developed DeMarco Murray but you also have to look at the fact he hasn’t been healthy yet in terms of for a full season.
I think we need a back. I like [Lance] Dunbar and I like [Phillip] Tanner but I think they’re more third backs than second backs.”
