After losing 2019 sack leader to the in , and waiting for the of and , Chaisson would bolster a that finished only 19th in last season.

    Yetur Gross-Matos, DE, Penn State 

    There has been one scenario floating around the Cowboys in regard to the first round and that's trading back to select Yetur Gross-Matos to acquire more draft capital.

    I think they they shock many and trade back to get Jalen Reagor and go defense rounds 2-4 then draft another wr in 5th and then a TE in 4th also depending on how the trade back works.

    Hours before the draft, YGM is one of my favorite players for the Cowboys. Makes perfect sense, with Quinn’s departure and question marks for Gregory and even bigger question marks for Smith. Right DE to match up with Lawrence, with size, power, and speed/quickness to bend the edge and get to QB, hold up at the point, AND the agility to play in space. Be real happy if his name is called. Then, can get your good CB in second; Arnette, Fulton, Terrell. Or even a Robinson or Pride in 3rd to 5th Rds. CB class is pretty deep.

    it’s here….woo-hoo! Trade down, trade down trade down and stock pile those round 2/3 picks!!! Lots of positions of need to replenish roster depth.
