Dallas Cowboys, CB Patrick Surtain Jr. Continue To Be Linked

At this point in the process, there seems to be four primary schools of thought nationally for the ' pick.

One, they take Penn State . This…well this isn't my favorite. We can leave it at that for now.

Two, they shock the world and draft a , maybe like Alabama's Mac Jones. Once again, not the biggest fan. They are better off just the quarterback they already have in .

Three, maybe they take an offensive lineman. After all we saw how depleted they were upfront last year, and can be penciled in to miss at least three games almost every season.

The fourth and most popular move, however, is to take the top in the draft class. Either Alabama's Jr. or Virginia Tech's .

The Dak Prescott decision looms large on the Cowboys' , but I expect him to get franchise tagged or sign a long-term deal” – Mel Kiper.

It's far from shocking to see the Cowboys mocked to take a cornerback here. And, honestly, it feels like the best possible move at this point. Dallas' current cornerback is a wasteland, and depending on free agency decisions it might not get much better ahead of draft day.

They desperately need a defensive play maker that fans can get fired up about, and that one can play alongside now second year cornerback Trevon Diggs for the foreseeable future.

Pairing Diggs with his former Alabama teammate in Surtain would give the Cowboys are a really fun foundation in their .

But, if does come down to Farley and Surtain, will be arguing over the pick for the next decade.
