The had quite an interesting 2019 . Starting in the , their selections were questioned by many analysts and die-hard . Many, myself included, were surprised to see them take Defensive Trysten Hill over some of the top safeties such as or . But the surprises didn’t stop there, as the went on to take an interior offensive lineman in Connor McGovern with their pick. Among other oddities, Dallas waited until the to draft a , passed on the tight end position altogether and double-dipped at the running back position.
