With the fifth round compensatory pick they received for losing Cole Beasley in free agency, the Dallas Cowboys selected Utah defensive end Bradlee Anae.
DE Bradlee Anae to Cowboys with No. 179 overall pick.
Anae joins a draft class being widely heralded by fans and analysts alike, including Oklahoma wide out CeeDee Lamb and Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs in the first two rounds. The selection of Anae is receiving just as much love as any other over the last two days.
Bradlee Anae was incredibly productive at the collegiate level, tallying 7,8, and 13 sacks in each of his last three seasons. Though he lacks the length of a high ceiling rusher, Anae is an excellent value pick in the fifth round, bringing sack production and a high motor to the Cowboys defensive line.
The Cowboys will again be on the clock one more time, 232nd overall in round seven.
