    The Cowboys Don’t Pick In Tonight’s 1st Round, And They’re Fine With That

    The of the 2019 gets underway tonight. On ABC primetime this year, the draft is as popular and flashy as it ever has been. Thousands will watch the commissioner read names from a card Thursday night, but the likely won't be involved whatsoever.

    And they're totally ok with that.

    The Cowboys, of course, used their 2019 first round pick on former Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper. Cooper helped to awake an which had been abysmal prior to his arrival, opening up the passing offense and unlocking 's best abilities.

    spoke to the this week, giving his reasoning for why he is comfortable with not having a first round pick this year.

    “I think you’d be hard-pressed to find anybody that would’ve made a difference on our roster like Amari made last year and like we feel like he’s going to make as me move forward” – Stephen Jones

    Of course, he's correct. At least partially. Dallas went 7-2 after the Amari Cooper , winning a home playoff game while Cooper put up dominating statistics. Cooper quickly became the Cowboys' most prolific target in the and added an element they so dearly missed during the first half of 2018.

    Still, though, not having four (plus one) years of a first round pick on a rookie deal is never ideal. You'd like to have the chance to add that young talent on the cheap. Instead, the Cowboys will need to give Amari Cooper a big payday quickly.

    There's no debating that the Amari Cooper trade has been a success for the Dallas Cowboys, however. He's the undisputed WR1 in Dallas, and had instant chemistry with young quarterback Dak Prescott.

    You can't help but be excited to see how those two grow together moving forward.
