Dallas Cowboys Draft Report
Round 1 Pick 17 CeeDee Lamb
The Cowboys didn't need a receiver, but the cornerbacks and safeties on the board were not on the same level as CeeDee Lamb. They drafted BPA and ended up with a receiver who has been compared to the likes of DeAndre Hopkins. Even though they locked up Amari Cooper to a hefty deal, if CeeDee Lamb develops, they can opt-out of it and save a lot of money. Lamb is a big play receiver who has elite ball skills, route running, blocking, and just overall is a very complete receiver. This was a STEAL by the Cowboys and this offense may be one of the best in the NFL.
Round 2 Pick 51 Trevon Diggs
Another steal by the Cowboys. Diggs was a top 25 prospect for many on their draft boards and some mocks had him going to the Cowboys at PICK 17. After losing Byron Jones, the Cowboys secondary was in the gutters and needed a huge upgrade in the draft. Diggs is a strong, fast, and instinctual corner with great ball skills who excels in zone coverage. He has the makings for a number one corner.
Round 3 Pick 82 Neville Gallimore
Gallimore will be playing alongside, Demarcus Lawrence, Gerald McCoy, and Dontari Poe. This Cowboy's defensive line is very underrated. Gallimore has a quick first step and thrives at shooting through a single gap. He is very athletic and has great hands as well. Learning from Dontari Poe and Gerald McCoy, Gallimore could be the future for the Cowboys at the interior defensive line.
Round 4 Pick 123 Reggie Robinson II
The Cowboys doubled up on cornerbacks during this draft to bolster their week secondary. Robinson is a very physical corner who isn't technically sound but can jam receivers and has great ball skills. He can be a rotational cornerback in his early years he could eventually become a starter outside of Trevon Diggs.
Round 4 Pick 146 Tyler Biadasz
After the surprise retirement of Travis Frederick, the Cowboys needed a center/backup center who could grow into the starting role. Biadasz is a strong run blocker, mobile, and powerful with great football IQ. If he stays healthy, this is yet another steal for the Cowboys.
Round 5 Pick 179 Bradlee Anae
WOW, ANOTHER STEALLLL. Anae had great production at the college level when he finished with 13 sacks last season. He is very quick off the line of scrimmage, but his lack of athleticism may limit him from reaching his full potential. He has great hands as well and will serve as a great backup who will learn from Demarcus Lawrence, which will only grow his game.
Round 7 Pick 231 Ben DiNucci
Watch out Dak Prescott, your time is almost up. DiNucci is from a smaller school but is a very accurate and mobile quarterback. DiNucci has a big arm and exceeds in the play-action game. He can be a great camp body and compete for the QB3 position against Cooper Rush.
