Cowboys Draft Day: On the Clock In Review

IT. IS. TIME. (Almost). The 2016 NFL draft is finally here, with today being the day where we finally learn what a miserable 4-12 season brings us. The Cowboys’ compensation will come in the form of the fourth overall pick – to be used on players as exciting as Jalen Ramsey or Ezekiel Elliott.

Throughout the team’s rich history, they have drafted plenty of exciting players, along with their fair share of busts. Here on Inside The Star, we have been documenting all of these picks over the past 31 days.

Starting with their most recent 31st overall pick on March 28th, we worked our way through Dallas’ draft history a day at a time – ending with Russell Maryland yesterday.

To recap, here is each player’s profile:
