2018 Draft: Dallas Cowboys Targeting SMU WR Courtland Sutton on Day 2

The are entering the second and third rounds of the with their need at unaddressed. Choosing Boise State LB in the , the Cowboys will have the 50th and 81st overall picks to potentially use on . Per this morning's reports, they are targeting local prospect .

The SMU wide receiver took an official pre-draft visit with the Cowboys, and had Head Coach Jason Garrett in attendance for his pro day.

Sutton would continue the Cowboys theme in this draft of targeting players with high upside. A true X-receiver to “replace” , Sutton has more than enough physical gifts to contribute on day one in Dallas.

To reach his full potential, Sutton will need to improve as a route runner and finisher against contact, but this is a player that creates separation and presents his with a large target.

It's prospects like Courtland Sutton that allowed the Cowboys to pass on a WR at 19th overall, seeing both and pushed down the board because of this year's depth. With plenty of teams in need of receivers picking ahead of the Cowboys though, they may have to up today to ensure they keep Sutton in Texas.

Giving away any of the nine picks remaining in Dallas to address an immediate need would be an ideal way for the Cowboys to enter the final day of this draft. Having achieved their goal of creating a younger roster that's ready to win, a new toy is coming 's way in just a few hours.

Keep an eye on this reciever being Courtland Sutton, who would join current Cowboys WR in 's receivers room as players our of SMU.

Please lord no. . . . Sutton is NOT what Dak needs. Dak needs a guy who runs good routes, has speed to force teams to cover deep, can get YAC.

Sutton is NONE of those things. He’s a lesser Dez without the tude.

Give me one of:

James Washington
Christian Kirk
Donte Pettis
Anthony Miller
Equ St Brown
Darice Fountain
Antonio Calloway
T’quan Smith

Not all with the 50th.

Or give me a top TE


I like the idea of a TE especially with Witten’s departure. Dak loves the short throw so a top tier TE that can block, catch and run after the catch would make more sense than a WR. We also already have a big body WR in Noah Brown which I hope will see more playing time this year

Hector Espindola

James Washington!!!

Chuck Wright

Would love that pick. Think he is underrated and does everything Dallas needs. Plus he’s a great kid/not a head case.

Hector Espindola

Hope FO agrees he is the “right kind of guy”…

Hector Espindola

Steelers hot him, sad for us, good for him anyway. He will have lot of competition at that roster.
