The Dallas Cowboys were about to win the NFC East Division, but they ran out of gas at the end of the season. The Cowboys absolutely need depth on their squad, so let’s take a look at who they picked in the NFL Draft.
Round 1, Pick 17: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma (6’2″, 198 lbs). Lamb is one of the best wide receivers in the Draft. He is the best at breaking open-field tackles. Adding him to the team gives the Cowboys one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.
Round 2, Pick 19: Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama (6’1″, 205 lbs). Diggs will be able to use his size to press up close on receivers. He should see some time at corner and possibly as a returner.
Round 3, Pick 18: Neville Gallimore, DT, Oklahoma (6’2″, 304 lbs). A problem that the Cowboys had last season was that they had some problems stopping the run. Gallimore will be able to bring pressure up the middle.
Round 4, Pick 17: Reggie Robinson II, CB, Tulsa (6’1″, 205 lbs). Robinson will add depth to the secondary and to the special teams because he is good at blocking kicks (at least one blocked kick in every season in college).
Round 4, Pick 40: Tyler Biadasz, C, Wisconsin (6’4″, 314 lbs). Dallas had to draft a center out of necessity; Biadasz should start from Day 1.
Round 5, Pick 34: Bradlee Anae, DE, Utah (6’3″, 257 lbs). Anae will add pass-rushing depth (13 sacks last season).
Round 7, Pick 17: Ben DiNucci, QB, James Madison (6’3″, 210 lbs). DiNucci will compete for the third-string QB spot.
Grade: B+. Adding depth with players that will make an impact will mean that the Cowboys will be back in the hunt for a division title.
