After a stellar regular season, the Dallas Cowboys are still in search of their first trip to the Super Bowl in over 20 years. Jerry Jones had to be thrilled by the way Dallas drafted in 2016 when the club added start rookies Ezekiel Elliott with the No. 4 overall selection and Dak Prescott with a fourth-round pick, but Jason Garrett's squad has plenty of work ahead to reach the championship game in a stacked NFC.

There's added pressure on Dallas to build off a successful campaign and once again they will turn to the draft to strengthen their chances. Because of a 13-3 season that boosted the Cowboys to within a game of the NFC Championship, the Cowboys will pick No. 28 and have a decent number of options to address some of their needs: a defensive lineman and a cornerback.

Cornerback might be the most pressing need. The Cowboys will have to deal with the likes of the New York Giants' superstar Odell Beckham Jr. and emerging receiver Sterling Shepard in the regular season. In the playoffs, they may have to face the Green Bay Packers again, with the likes of Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams.

Dallas almost certainly will draft at least one cornerback and will likely bring several into camp as rookie free agents. But landing a cover man in the first round could be a top priority.

When breaking down the first round, there might be a few impressive names available for Dallas at No. 28.

Adoree' Jackson, CB, USC

Will he still be around? Many general managers are looking to boost their secondary and Jackson fills that while also offering teams a potential star punt or kick returner. Comparisons to Deion Sanders are ridiculous but Jackson was one of the most dynamic players in the college football in 2016 and probably deserved attention for the Heisman Trophy. He plays with a lot of pride and has that Cowboys swagger that Jones loves. The 21-year-old seems like an ideal choice.

Tre'Davious White, CB, LSU

Was a very experienced cover man with the Tigers in his four seasons. Like Jackson, White has a good chance of landing in the middle of the first round and also can be a punt returner and kick returner. His experience at a major program known for defense likely means he is NFL ready. The problem with White is that he's not a great tackler, but that's not always a major concern for a corner. He may not become an NFL star, but he seems like he has a very good shot at being a consistent and steady starter due to his maturity and intelligence.

Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

The son of Bobby Humphrey is a talent and seems destined to have a strong NFL career. He has a tendency to overcommit but some may interpret that as a sign that he's aggressive. He's only 20 and if his coverage IQ catches up to his athleticism he could be a starter in Week 1. Humphrey has size and speed of the prototypical NFL cornerback and he started every game for the Crimson Tide so his durability won't be questioned. He should be available at No. 28.

Montravius Adams, DT, Auburn

He's 6-foot-4 and over 300 pounds and has quickness for a position that doesn't really require it. Adams, who had a strong Senior Bowl, probably won't be a great pass rusher at the professional level, but his size and speed can force opposing offensive lines to make adjustments and lead to more overall sacks for the line. The Cowboys finished with a respectable 36 sacks in 2016, and Maliek Collins had a solid season, but Dallas may need another defensive tackle to aid Collins and Tyrone Crawford, who will probably see more time as a defensive end. There's a possibility that Adams drops to the Cowboys in the second round, but if the players above are taken before No. 28, Dallas should take a chance on Adams and find a corner in the second round.

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that the Cowboys have the 26th. The Cowboys have the 28th pick.
