2020 NFL Draft: Cornerbacks Dallas Cowboys Could Target in Each Round

Which round should the Dallas Cowboys target the cornerback position?

Anyway you look at it, the Dallas Cowboys are in desperate need of adding some more cornerback help through either free agency or the 2020 NFL Draft. Since they’re willing to let Byron Jones and possibly Anthony Brown leave via free agency, it looks as if that depth may come through the draft. Who knows though… it could be both.

By now you’ve probably heard the CBs being linked to the Dallas Cowboys in the first-round, but you may not be as familiar with the ones they could target with their other draft picks. That’s why I thought I would go round by round and share with you a CB I think they could target in each round they currently hold a draft pick.

Let’s take a look…

ROUND 1

CJ Henderson
Florida CB C.J. Henderson

C.J. Henderson, Florida (6’1″, 204)

C.J. Henderson has become a popular pick for the Dallas Cowboys with the 17th overall pick in the first-round this offseason. He’s regarded as the second-best cornerback in this year’s draft class behind only Jeffrey Okudah. His combination of size, speed, and his ability in coverage, make him a high ceiling prospect at the next level. As such though, he could find himself drafted much earlier.

ROUND 2

Noah Igbinoghene
Auburn CB Noah Igbinoghene

Noah Igbinoghene, Auburn (5’10”, 198)

Noah Igbinoghene is a wide receiver turned cornerback whose on-field play projects well at the next level. He’s still learning the intricacies of the CB position, but his athleticism and strength to alter routes in press coverage makes him an intriguing prospect. His rawness may keep him from becoming an immediate plug-and-play player as a rookie, but his ceiling is as high as any CB in the 2020 draft class. The added value he brings as a special teams player makes him well worth a second-round pick.

ROUND 3

Troy Pride Jr.
Notre Dame CB Troy Pride Jr.

Troy Pride Jr., Notre Dame (5’11”, 193)

Troy Pride is as athletically gifted as any cornerback in the 2020 draft class. His size, weight, speed, and athleticism are all pro-ready, but there is a lack of consistency in his game that will probably keep him from being drafted higher. He really needs to become a more confident player and trust what he sees. Right now, he’s better when he can keep the game in front of him which could limit his scheme fit.

ROUND 4

Michael Ojemudia
Iowa CB Michael Ojemudia

Michael Ojemudia, Iowa (6’1″, 200)

Michael Ojemudia looks the part of what the Dallas Cowboys former coaching regime would’ve looked for in a CB prospect, but that may no longer be true with the new staff. His size and length probably makes him better in a heavy press scheme, especially considering his instincts and ability to click and close in off-man is questionable at best based on his film. At this point in the draft though his measurable’s are worth taking a chance on.

ROUND 5

AJ Green
Oklahoma State CB A.J. Green

A.J. Green, Oklahoma State (6’1″, 202)

A.J. Green has the size and length to be an outside cornerback in the NFL, but his lack of deep speed will limit his scheme fit. He was at his best in press man where he can get physical with WRs off line of scrimmage during his time at Oklahoma, but will struggle with with shifty and speedier receivers at the next level. He may need to play in a heavy zone scheme where he can keep the ball in front of him.

ROUND 7

Reggie Robinson II
Tulsa CB Reggie Robinson II

Reggie Robinson II, Tulsa (6’1″, 205)

Reggie Robinson checks all the boxes as far as size, speed, and ball production is concerned, but unfortunately that all doesn’t show up on tape. He’s a little stiff through the hips in his transitions, which allows receivers to gain separation on him. He possesses enough talent for the Dallas Cowboys to take a chance on him here, but a switch to safety may be in his future if he can improve his run support just a little bit.

What do you think?

  1. Brian, all good picks, Any thoughts on Harrison Hand out of Temple. Great on RUN SUPPORT, which we need badly, and great speed reported 4.31, and 40 inch vertical.

  2. Why just 1 choice for each round?? My understanding was that you were gonna name all CBs that we could take in each round!! Cj Henderson wasn’t the only CB in round 1 that has been linked to us, and Noah isn’t the only one linked to us in the 2nd round either!! This article would’ve been better if you would’ve listed all the CBs we could get in each round…. Especially the good ones in the early rounds!! And then just name a couple in each of the later rounds!! I know Cj Henderson isn’t the only CB we could go after in the 1st round, I actually hope we don’t, I’m not as high on him as everyone else is!! There’s a reason he was expected to go in the 2nd and 3rd round before the combine!! Just cause he did good at the combine it doesn’t change how he played in actual games for 3 or 4 years of college!! And there are much better options for us in the 2nd round than Noah too, that’s why I brought up talking about more than just 1 prospect in each round!! The only player I liked out of all these you named was Troy pride!!

  3. I can see you did hardly any or NO research when it comes to CJ Henderson @Cowboys Fan. Do some homework before you speak down on ANYBODY.
