Patrick Surtain II’s Dominant Pro Day Could be Bad News for Cowboys

The , including , were on hand at Alabama's to witness dominate every single drill he was put through. He's been a dream and a favorite for them with the 10th overall pick in the first-round, but sadly that dream may have died yesterday afternoon.

The numbers and measurements for Patrick Surtain II couldn't have been better if he'd scripted everything himself. That dominant performance not only made him quite a bit of money yesterday afternoon, but also solidified himself as arguably the top-ranked CB prospect in the entire class.

This could very well end up being bad news for the Dallas Cowboys. It's no secret he was someone they were targeting with the 10th overall pick, but that dream may be dead because there's a really good possibility he could be gone well before they are on the clock.

There are several teams slotted to pick ahead of the Dallas Cowboys who could target Patrick Surtain II to upgrade their , including the division rival the . That could be a nightmare if that is indeed the way things turned out.

Not only would the Eagles add a top-notch CB to upgrade their secondary, but it keeps the Dallas Cowboys from doing the same. To make matters worse, Dallas' next top-ranked CB prospect, , might've taken himself out of contention as well after electing to have back surgery.

Dreams have a way of turning into nightmares and that certainly seems like it could be the case for the Dallas Cowboys if their two top-ranked CB prospects are no longer available for them with the 10th overall pick in the first-round. It's all of course speculation right now, but there's a pretty good chance that's the way things turn out.

Would that ruin their entire draft strategy? Probably not, but it could very well force them into turning to their contingency plan. There's no way of knowing what that is because we don't know who might still be available, but with the possibility that Surtain and Farley not in play it definitely changes things.

With so many fans around with tunnel vision for these two CB prospects this could be one of those nightmares that becomes reality. Patrick Surtain II's dominant Pro Day and Caleb Farley's surgery could take both prospects out of play for the Cowboys. What then?

This of course is all speculation on my part right now. However, I don't think it's that big of a stretch this could very well come to fruition. It might be time to look at some of the other top-ranked prospects who could be in play. It's always good to have a contingency plan in place if things do indeed fall apart.
