The Dallas Cowboys surprisingly pass on safety for another round. With Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and other safeties still on the board, the Cowboys decided to take an offensive player in the third round. With the 90th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Cowboys drafted OL Connor McGovern, from Penn State.
This is undoubtedly a surprising pick, specially when you consider the players available at safety and tight end. However, the pick does make a bit of sense. The team has a desperate need at offensive line depth. McGovern could be a plug in player as a guard and the Cowboys could kick last year’s second round pick Connor Williams to tackle in a year. Or, maybe the Cowboys are open to trading La’el Collins and adjust accordingly?
Who know what the Cowboys plan is in the future, but this pick certainly raises some questions.
The player is good, but the question lies in how will he be used in Dallas. During NFL Network’s broadcast, Daniel Jeremiah called him his highest graded interior offensive lineman available at the time.
