2021 NFL Draft: Week 8 Loss Moves Dallas Cowboys Into the Top 5

After the Week 8 loss to the the 2-6 record is currently the fifth worst in the entire league. As such, if the were to end today they would be slotted to pick within the Top 5 in the .

  1. (0-8)
  2. (1-6)
  3. (1-6)
  4. (1-6)
  5. Dallas Cowboys (2-6)

The last time the Dallas Cowboys secured a Top 5 draft pick was back in 2016 when they selected fourth overall out of . Fast-forward four years later and none of us would've probably predicted the Cowboys drafting so highly or so soon once again.

It's really way too early to know which position or player the Dallas Cowboys could be targeting if indeed they do secure a Top 5 draft pick in 2021. I think we can safely speculate the pick being used to upgrade the defensive side of the ball, however, we can't rule out it being used on an offensive player completely.

Defensively the Dallas Cowboys need a ton of help. Nearly their entire become at the end of the 2020 season and they need some help along the as well. I wouldn't rule out another either considering the way has played this season and 's inability to remain healthy.

Although the Cowboys should be top priority in the , we can't completely rule out investing a top pick on the offensive side of the ball. With a Top 5 pick , Justin Fields, or could be within reach if they choose not to bring back . I wouldn't rule out taking in OT that high either due to 's ongoing health concerns.

Again it's still way too early to know where the Dallas Cowboys will be slotted in the 2021 , but it's definitely something to keep an eye on the second half of the 2020 season. It could be one of the more interesting things to follow as the season progresses.

Where do you think the Dallas Cowboys will pick the 2021 NFL Draft?
