The Dallas Cowboys have made their final selection in the 2020 NFL Draft by taking Quarterback Ben DiNucci out of James Madison.
The #Cowboys pick QB Ben DiNucci from James Madison.
Ben DiNucci proved to be a shocker on Day 3 of the 2020 NFL Daft. With the Dukes, DiNucci passed for 3,341 yards and 29 touchdowns while only throwing six interceptions. DiNucci started his college football career playing for Pitt before ending up in James Madison.
As a seventh-round pick, it’ll be interesting to see how DiNucci can contribute to the QB room this offseason. With Cooper Rush on the team, he’s a longshot to make the roster. Coming into the 2020 NFL Draft, the quarterback position was expected to be addressed.

While the pick is surprising, it’s impossible to criticize a seventh-round pick. Rolling the dice on a QB who led his team to an FCS Championship certainly seems worth it.
