Reaction to Cowboys Selecting Oklahoma State LB Devin Harper with 193rd Pick

The have selected with the 193rd pick in the 2022 . He's the second linebacker taken by the Cowboys after was taken with the 176th pick.

My initial reaction is that this is a strange pick. Dallas only needed one linebacker to add depth, and now it's selected two. Maybe, they wanted a guy who was going to play this season since Clark is going to miss the . However, I would've gone with either a or a here.

He had a great , including a vertical jump of over 40 inches. He's another good athlete and another project pick. But my problem is with the position, not Harper himself. I don't think it was wise to go with another linebacker. However, Harper is a good player, so I don't entirely hate this selection. Dallas is clearly going with players who have good traits and high athleticism.

Here's how others reacted to the pick:

Jabril Cox is coming back from an ACL and didn’t get much action on D before the injury.
Damone Clark is red shirting for a herniated disk/spinal fusion surgery.
Leighton Vander Esch is on another 1 year “prove it” deal and seemingly a perpetual injury concern.
Davante Bond is a PS level player who is always hurt.
Luke Gifford is on a 1 year deal and more ST’s than LB.
Micah Parsons is better as a pass rusher than an off the ball LB, but is pretty good at that as well.

Selecting a healthy LB with Devin Harper’s traits was practically a must, not only for this season, but for next as well with all the 1 year deals and injury concerns. At this point, there’s no telling when or if Damone Clark will ever be 100% and if so, for how long.
