Dallas Cowboys 2016 Draft Order: Week 12 Update

While the NFC East hopelessly won’t let the Dallas Cowboys die peacefully, we here at Inside The Star must prepare fans for the best case scenario (an improbable playoff berth after winning the division) while simultaneously preparing you for what expects to be a long offseason.

To do so, I gave you my five upcoming free agents that really need the team’s remaining five games.

Ryan Ratty has also been pointing out some potential draft targets for the Cowboys, which covers a number of positions:

Of course, to get a better feel for the draft and who may end up on the Cowboys radar, we need to know the general area that their pick will come up on the clock.

If the season ended today, the Cowboys would have the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The two-win Titans and Browns own the top two spots, respectively, followed by the 3-8 Chargers and 3-8 Cowboys.

With only one of the top three teams in clear need of a quarterback (Cleveland), this pick could feasibly be used on the future signal-caller for the Cowboys – to sit behind Romo for the remainder of his time in Dallas.

It is too early in the process to take any draft rumors seriously, but the Browns reportedly have some interest in Memphis QB Paxton Lynch. If this all falls into place, and Lynch goes to the Browns, it would leave Jared Goff as the next most likely quarterback to be drafted.

Goff, out of California, has drawn some comparisons to Romo in his ability to extend plays – so it may be a good fit for Scott Linehan’s offense.

Historically, the Cowboys have only picked with the fourth overall selection one time and selected defensive tackle Scott Appleton in 1964 – who was immediately traded to the Steelers.

The last time the Cowboys selected in the top five, they picked defensive back Terence Newman in 2003 with the fifth overall pick.
