Cowboys Draft: Three Remaining Targets For Round Two

The hit an absolute home run with their pick last night, landing dynamic Oklahoma receiver .

Lamb might be the best wide out in the entire draft class, and the Cowboys now have put together arguably the most explosive (on paper) in the .

So what's next?

Dallas still has holes on their which need addressing, but the names remaining on the board heading into round two tonight are promising. Here are three dream scenarios for the Cowboys 51st overall pick.

McKinney may not become an elite NFL like we've seen out of Alabama in recent years (Minkah Fitzpatrick and Eddie Jackson, to name a few), but he can step right in and be a starter on the Cowboys defense.

He can be moved around all over a defense, filling a multitude of roles in a which could use the versatility.

The Cowboys tried to address the safety position with Haha Clinton-Dix during , but Delpit would give them a longterm solution to a position they haven't treated with much care in the past.
