Could Cowboys Take Another 2nd Round Risk On DT Jeffery Simmons?

The have taken a few risks when on the clock in the of the in recent years. and , both important starters on , were drafted to the after they went down on many teams’ draft boards. In 2019, they’ll have the opportunity to take yet another risk. Recently, one of the best defensive tackles in this year’s class, Jeffery Simmons, suffered a torn ACL while going through a drill during his workout in Florida.

Simmons took to to share the unfortunate news that will drastically affect his draft stock only a couple of months before the Draft.

Before the , Jeffery Simmons was seen as a top draft prospect. Some even envisioned him being drafted in the top 10. As a 21-year old defensive from Mississippi State, Simmons had an impressive career during his time in . In three seasons he managed to rack up 157 tackles and seven .

If one thing is clear it’s that the Mississippi State product will be an impact player when he gets on the field on Sundays. His quick reaction on the get-off will still interest a lot of teams despite his injury. A sound defender on the running and , he’ll pay big dividends for whichever team decides to pull the trigger on him come April.

Due to their recent second round draft , I can’t help but wonder if the Dallas Cowboys will consider him when they’re on the clock in the second round. This year though, there will be a big difference. Pick #58 will be the first time the Cowboys will be on the clock in this year’s draft after trading away their first rounder for last year.

It will be tough for them to wait until the to pick a player they could actually put on the field for the . Specially considering the fact that they’re a football team with title aspirations this year. Despite their history and the fact that Simmons will be one hell of a pro, I believe the team will not want to make such a pick in the second without a selection.

The team has a big need at DT, although and were very serviceable in 2018. We’ll see how tempted they are if Jeffery Simmons is still on the board when they’re on the clock.
