Cowboys Draft Cornerback Trevon Diggs With 51st Pick

    The continue their strong performance in the with their most recent second-round pick. With the 51st pick, the Cowboys have drafted out of Alabama.

    The #33 prospect in 's (fourth ) will fill fit right into the Cowboys' defensive backfield. After letting walk in , cornerback undoubtedly became the single biggest need for the team.

    “Overall, Diggs needs to clean up his technique and discipline in coverage to reach his full potential, but he has shown improvement in those areas and projects as an NFL starter due to his size, twitch and competitive nature.” Dane Brugler on The Athletic.

    With and set to hit free agency after the upcoming season, a rookie's arrival helps the team in the long run. However, Diggs should be set to make an immediate impact.

    He played a ton of time in the slot in Alabama, but his size should allow him to play on the outside at the next level and become a true CB1. Diggs was seen by many as an option in the , yet the Cowboys found him in the middle of the as they took just the second cornerback of the day.

    Speculations were made early on Friday about the possibility of the Cowboys trading up to pick at the top of the second round, but they ended up staying put with the 51st pick and avoided spending draft capital to get their guy.

    With the top safeties remaining being drafted picks before (McKinney-Giants, Delpit-Browns, Winfield-Bucs), the decision to go for a cornerback was made easy for the Dallas Cowboys. Fortunately, the team made an insurance in free agency by getting at a low price.

    The Dallas Cowboys still hold the 82nd overall pick in the later tonight, which we'll be covering here at Inside .

    I think diggs is one of the est cb in the draft i like him much better than johnson and delphit i would if chose him at pick 17 he is a gonna be a good one great pick Dallas



    Trevon Diggs is an excellent selection for cornerback, a position of considerable need for the Dallas Cowboys.

    Trevon is big, strong, and fast, so he can tangle with the most physical receivers. A former wide receiver, Trevino also plays the ball well, which can’t be said consistently of Chidobe, for example.

    I expect Trevon to see plenty of playing time in his rookie season. Coming from the biggest of college programs, he’ll catch on quickly in the pros.

    After CeeDee Lamb miraculously landed in the Cowboys’ saddle in the first round, everything else is gravy. But Trevon Diggs is particularly good gravy.
