Cowboys Draft: 2 College Football Games and Players to Watch this WeeK

It may not technically be draft season, but as the Dallas Cowboys limp to the finish line of the 2020 NFL season, it is for all intents and purposes draft season. As things stand now, the Dallas Cowboys sit with a top-five draft pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, though that is likely subject to change with several winnable games remaining on the schedule.

But with the unofficial start of draft season, now’s a great opportunity to begin familiarizing yourself with players that may be an option for the Dallas Cowboys in the top five of the draft. So with that, let’s take a look at 5 players and games to watch this college football Saturday.

Note: I’m not including quarterbacks for one reason. The Dallas Cowboys are incredibly unlikely to take a quarterback with their first-round pick as they prepare to pay Dak Prescott franchise quarterback money.

Note: the writer mistakenly included players who have opted out of the 2020 College Football Season.

Patrick Surtain and #1 Alabama vs LSU 7:00 pm on CBS

Though Farley has been the player that’s been mocked to the Cowboys the most recently, there’s certainly a debate to be had for the number one cornerback in the draft in 2021. Alabama Cornerback Patrick Surtain is absolutely in the conversation as a player the Cowboys could select.

If taken in the 2021 draft, he’d pair nicely with another Alabama cornerback turned pro in Trevon Diggs. Coming from an Alabama system that asks their players to be flexible enough to play in multiple defensive schemes.

With the turnover expected in the secondary for the Cowboys in te 2021 offseason, they’ll certainly be taking a cornerback or two in the draft, it’s just a matter of how high and which ones.

Kyle Pitts and #6 Florida vs Tennessee 2:30 pm CBS

Much like linebacker, it’s unlikely and probably unreasonable to select a tight end with a top five pick in the NFL Draft. The bust rate on tight ends is incredibly high at a position that generally struggles with its transition to the NFL. In addition to that, the Cowboys look to be pretty solid on their two deep depth chart with the emerging Dalton Schultz and the returning Blake Jarwin.

That said, Kyle Pitts is a fascinating player and looks to have the receiving ability to make the jump at the next level. In 2020, Pitts is averaging 17.5 yards per reception on 29 catches, has 513 yards and 11 touchdowns while missing some time.

  1. Even though Parsons opted out of the season which may slightly affect his draft status. Many think he is the best D player in the draft. With LVE injury issues and the continued regression of J Smith it certainly qualifies as a need. Further his skill set addresses several needs for the cowboys, not the least of which is a terrific run stopper and pass rusher.

    CB while more of a need doesn’t have a “can’t miss ” prospect though Surtain and Farley seem to be the cream of the crop. I would opt for Parsons with our first pick then get the best available CB with our high second round pick. It’s a pretty good year for CBs so we could still get a good one.

  2. i think the cowboys at this point should consider working on the secondary. The players we have right now are miss to many tackles. We need help on all positions, Dallas cowboy an’t shit right now
