2021 NFL Draft: Dallas Cowboys Select LSU LB Jabril Cox

The Dallas Cowboys have selected Linebacker Jabril Cox with a 4th-round pick, 115th overall, in the 2021 NFL Draft. He played his senior year at LSU after three seasons at North Dakota St.

Cox was generally considered one of the top talents available going into Day 3; someone many expected to be drafted on Friday night. After getting criticized for reaching on talent with some of their 3rd-round pick, Dallas shouldn’t hear any of that with this pick.

Michael Gehlken on Twitter: “And we are underway with another defender: former LSU linebacker Jabril Cox to Cowboys at No. 115 overall. Team had a Day 2 grade on him. Cox will be busy as rookie on special teams. https://t.co/oJ0DW20ep5 / Twitter”

This pick gives Dallas their sixth defensive player in this draft; a clean sweep so far on that side of the ball. Cox is also the second linebacker drafted after Penn State’s Micah Parsons joined the Cowboys on Thursday night.

Depth at LB was a clear concern for Dallas, arguably their second-biggest need to cornerback, heading into the 2021 Draft.

Welcome to the Cowboys, Jabril Cox!

  1. Very nice value pick who has great coverage skills. I love this pick. With this I would say either LVE or Smiths time is coming to an end

  2. Joe Thomas replacement/upgrade.

    Glad they’re getting back on track after the puzzling Nahshon Wright pick in the 3rd.

  3. With a shady 3rd rd and another LB that makes me think there’s something looming bringing in Richard Sherman and not kj Wright.

  4. This pick is the best one of the draft!! I never minded us taking a LB, but I did not want us taking one in the 1st round!! Especially Micah Parsons… I would’ve taken my chances with Caleb Farley, or moved down a couple more spots and got Greg Newsome!! Caleb Farley is gonna be good, this back problem he had surgery on isn’t a recurring problem, the 2nd surgery was to fix something that he should’ve let them fix the first time, but he decided to see if it would go away on it’s own!! But it didn’t so he decided to have the surgery and fix it so he would be ready for the start of the season!! So he’s gonna be good to go!! But oh well, we can’t change the past!! Just gotta hope for the best!!

    And TUTX88, I doubt they’re gonna move on from Jaylon Smith, if I had to guess I’d say they will be moving on from LVE!! He’s the one who’s injured all the time and misses all kinds of games!! And they still haven’t picked up his 5th year option either!! So I think he’s the one that’ll be moving on!!
