Dallas Cowboys

Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram rattles off five areas the Cowboys should focus on during Senior Bowl workouts, including finding another DeMarco Murray. Mendez: "We're talking about a top-round talent who might shine in practice, if not necessarily the game. In 2011, Murray got only two carries at the Senior Bowl. Mike Gillislee of Florida is close to Murray in size, is fast and can catch the ball."

New York Giants

While reviewing the Giants' safeties, Big Blue View's Ed Valentine tabs Kenny Phillips as a player to keep an eye on this offseason. Valentine: "The 2008 first-round pick is an unrestricted free agent and, while he is an excellent player, it would not be a stunning decision if the Giants allow Phillips to leave."

Philadelphia Eagles

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reads into what Chip Kelly might be looking for in his defensive coordinator. "Kelly is probably looking for a coordinator who can devise a scheme and call plays for a defense that can shut down offenses at key spots -- on third down, in the red zone, and during the fourth quarter. 'Obviously, you're looking for a guy that can stop people and [can tell you] philosophically what their theory is and how they go about it,' Kelly said. 'But when you interview [someone], I think if you're a football guy you learn a lot, too.'"

Washington Redskins

Don't expect a lot of Redskins fans to be lining up to get on the Baltimore Ravens' bandwagon, writes Rick Snider of The Washington Examiner.
