The Cowboys' 2019 draft class, even its earliest picks, has not made much immediate impact. DT has not earned much playing time over more experienced teammates and G/C has been out with a pectoral .

Michael Jackson, drafted seven spots ahead of DE , was the highest selection to not make the 53-man roster. But now he joins the Lions and may get a chance to suit up against the Cowboys in three weeks.

Whatever the future brings, best of luck to Michael Jackson in his NFL career.
