Dallas Cowboys Draft History: Greatest 7th-Round Picks of All Time

[tps_title]8. Dave Stalls, DL, 1977[/tps_title]

Dave Stalls

Stalls joined the Cowboys for the twilight of its greatness in the 70s. He served as a backup and roleplayer on the 1977 Super Bowl Champion team and then became a starter in 1979.

Tampa Bay traded for Stalls in 1980, sending Dallas a 4th and 7th-round pick in exchange. Dallas not only flipped Dave for a higher pick but even got back his original 7th; outstanding return for their investment.

Stalls continued to have a solid NFL career. He posted 6.5 sacks in only nine games during the strike-shortened 1982 season.

In 1983, now a member of the Los Angeles Raiders, Stalls picked up his second Super Bowl ring as a pass rushing specialist on their defense.

He then played in 1984 in the USFL for the Denver Gold, putting up 12.5 sacks as one of the top defensive players that season.

Dave Stalls had memorable stints with two different NFL franchises and even one in another professional league. It was an impressive career given his humble beginnings.

What do you think?

  1. I like Aaron Parker from Rhode Island for round 7. He would give better rotational depth at WR. If I’m Dallas I would honestly get him and get his teammate WR in the 5th also. Dallas would get 2 WR’S in this draft I think both of them would be steals.

  2. Get Isaiah Culter and Aaron Parker as a WR from Rhode Island. I think they would be awesome in Dallas and be steals in the mid-later rounds.

  3. The name alone, Bullet Bob, says it all. Hayes changed the game and was a true home run hitter every time he touched the ball. He is the best seventh rounder! And as the article mentioned, he was a great returner. He brought an excitement to the game that very few others could match. He was one of the players that kept the Cowboys a very popular team, with a rich, great history.

    Cowboys are America’s Team! And hopefully with the FAs and the right draft picks, they can compete for another Championship. Dak better take his big head out of his a$$, and get on board. If not, hopefully the front office has a plan B.

  4. “Mike Hegman was a backup linebacker and special teams player for his first four seasons. He helped the Cowboys win Super Bowl XIII in a big way, returning a Terry Bradshaw fumble for a touchdown.”

    The Cowboys didn’t win Super Bowl XIII. The Steelers did.
