2020 NFL Draft: Predicting Dallas Cowboys Day 2 Draft Picks

Predicting who the Dallas Cowboys will draft on Day 2 of the NFL Draft.

Well Cowboys Nation, how are you feeling today? Are you still riding the high from the Dallas Cowboys first-round selection of Wide Receiver CeeDee Lamb? Maybe you’re more like myself and are impatiently waiting for Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft to get underway. Either way, all we can do is hope that today is as exciting and rewarding for the Cowboys as yesterday was.

Today, I thought I’d go ahead and share with you who I think the Dallas Cowboys could be targeting in the second and third rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft. There’s still a lot of talented prospects yet to be drafted, meaning the Cowboys should be able to come away with a couple of impact players. But who? Which positions could they be targeting with the 51st and 82nd overall picks?

Let’s take a look…

Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah

Jaylon Johnson is the most likely cornerback still left on the board who could slide right into the lap of the Dallas Cowboys in the second-round at Pick 51. I had him graded higher than quite a few of the CBs who heard their name called last night in Round 1 and the only reason I think he’s still available is due to injury concerns (shoulder). To my knowledge, Johnson has had three different shoulder surgeries, on the same shoulder, dating back to high school. Maybe teams are worried about his long-term health, but that could help land the Cowboys yet another talented player.

Jonathan Greenard, EDGE, Florida

In search for more pass rush help, the Dallas Cowboys could turn to former Louisville and Florida EDGE rusher Jonathan Greenard with Pick 82 in the third-round. Greenard checks all of the boxes as far as what NFL teams are looking for in an EDGE player. He has the size, length, quick first step, and athletic ability to apply pressure off the edge. He is also a good run defender. He still needs to develop his rush plan and counters, but his relentless and menacing nature will get him on the field early as a rookie. He should be an immediate pass rush contributor with the Cowboys.

Who do you want to see the Dallas Cowboys draft on Day 2?

  1. Trade Rnd 2 and 3 Pick to move up and take Mckinney or Winfield ASAP. That would be a major steal. I get we have other needs, but we NEED a starting safety and these two are first round players that fell. We should take advantage.

    • If they trade up, I doubt it will be for a safety. The fact that no safeties were drafted in the first-round should tell you all you need to know about how the position is valued around the league. I think they will let things play out like they did yesterday and then take the best available player. I think Winfield has a chance to make it to 51.

  2. That’s a horrible idea. There are still 4 good safties in the draft. There are too many needs to fill to trade away a 3rd rounder. 2nd and 5th maybe to go up a few spots.

  3. I would like McKinney to fall to them- Need a defensive back desperately and he looks to be the best of the rest!

  4. Getting Lamb at 17 was a steal but as most cowboy fans know only way this team improves next year is to be more proficient in the red zone and improve our over rated pathetic defense.That means getting a safety and a corner in rounds 2 and 3 and a defensive lineman in round four.We really shouldn’t have to if Trysten Hill would just live up to Rod Marinellis hype.Smith has to have a better year,and Vanderesch needs to stay on the field.Wow not much to ask,and while we’re at it can we talk Jerry into selling the team and stop playing GM.Ive used up all my wishes for one life time.

  5. Agree with Dboys 100%. Have to go Secondary in 2 and then again in 3 unless a really good edge rusher is available

  6. I’d like to see an edge rusher in round 2, but no one is really jumping off the page to me. If we went best available in round 1, then round 2 could cover needs. There are some good CBs still out there, wouldn’t mind if we traded back up into the 2nd to get Stefon’s little brother.

  7. If we cant get fulton or Johnson, there is still espenesa and gross matos. If we were to trade up and those players are gone id say trade our 5th round picks or maybe 4th and pick to move up and grab Josh Jones with their furst second and an edge or corner with the second. 3rd round maybe pick up the kid Morgan at QB to back up Prescott and I think we got ourselves a team. Also side note Randy Mosses son is still a late possible pick at Tight End.

    • I didn’t think he would make it to 51. Great value for a player the Cowboys would’ve considered if they would’ve traded back in the 1st.


  8. They should just get clowney out of free agency and address that secondary everything else is cool from are dline to backers are offense is stacked just need a center or a guard that’s all
