Who Will be the Cowboys Pick in Round 1?

    The have made solid moves in in regards to their . On the interior , they added six-time Pro Bowler and two-time Pro Bowler . In the , they signed veteran to lineup opposite .

    When it comes to the , most people have the Cowboys going defense with their first selection, and rightfully so considering starters , , and all found new homes. With that being said, there are three defensive players heavily linked to the Cowboys as strong first-round options.

    , CB, Florida 

    Henderson enters the draft as the second-best in this class after Ohio State's Jeff Okudah. His physical measurables are prototypical for a cornerback in today's NFL at 6'1 204 pounds. He can play in a variety of different packages which allows you to be more flexible defensively. Not only can he cover bigger receivers, but his speed (ran a 4.39 at the ) allows him to cover smaller/quicker receivers down the field on deep routes. Excellent at reading the 's eyes and uses great anticipation to break up passes. He's your CB1 if drafted.

    , S, Alabama 

    Probably the most popular name you'll see pop up on for the Cowboys is Xavier McKinney. Arguably the best in this class along with 's , McKinney can play in a variety of different coverages like the aforementioned Henderson. Very physical tackler. He can spot route combinations and adjust quickly. Has the ability to play down in the box vs the run and is a very good blitzer. His instincts and athleticism allow him to make plays on the ball. If drafted, he has a shot at being a starter opposite Xavier Woods.

    , , LSU 

    Chaisson is regarded by most as the second-best pass rusher in this year's draft class behind Ohio State's Chase Young. He has incredible flexibility to bend coming off the edge with speed. Use his hands very well to keep linemen at bay and possesses an excellent inside-counter spin move. He can translate speed to power quickly. Wore the number 18 for LSU as a symbol of success on and off the field and a selfless attitude. Can play in a 4-3 or as an outside in a 3-4. He's your probable starter opposite All-Pro if drafted.

    Either of these prospects would be an instant upgrade for the Cowboys that can provide immediate impact. The question now is which one will have his name called when the Cowboys pick in round one? Only time will tell.

    I like it only thing to me is chiasson just had a great 2nd half of the season is that enough to be drafted at 17??…good read my guy keep up the good work

    Victor A Gardner

    I would rank them:
    1. Henderson
    2. Chaisson
    3. McKinney

    Cowboys fan

    That’s crazy…. I would rank them:
    1. Mckinney
    2. Henderson
    3. Chaisson
    And the only reason I have Henderson 2nd is cause I really don’t like Chaisson!! And Henderson was a 2nd or 3rd round prospect before the combine for a reason!! He did do good at the combine, but he was projected to go in the 2nd or 3rd round for a reason!! And my favorite choice for us in the first round…. Xavier Mckinney…. He has been projected for the first round the whole time!! The combine didn’t turn him into a first round prospect!!


    Trade down and grab Ruiz (C) later in the 1st.

    Find quality in the 2nd, maybe move up to get best CB or WR available.


    This years Draft is full of WR and if everybody remembers correctly Emmanuel Sanders even The great and shitty Antonio Brown we’re drafted in the 6th round. So that leaves us with a Defense stance and definitely need a Center. So where we go is up to what we would really need most. The lose of Travis Fredrick and Bryon Jones is two huge holes to fill. I would think we should grab the best possible Center who should be available by the 17th pick or trade down for more picks and probably still get that same Center. Also who knows what Dak will do. I think we should get rid of him cause he hasn’t proven anything in my eyes. His record showed for it last year. Maybe not his stats but his wins and loses tell it all last season. We couldn’t throw or beat anyone with a half decent team. I believe any QB would had the same result. This makes for a interesting year.


    Trade Prescott to Miami for 5th pick ++ and get Tua. Overrated problem child gone and start Tua and go better than 8-8 easily.

    Prescott 2019 stats at first glance look good, but go deeper and you will see an lot of GARBAGE yards. You will see him feast on bad teams. You will see him WILT against winning record teams. You will see when the division was there for the taking against Philly, he flopped.

    On top of all that, he has delusions that he is the best QB in the league and wants to be paid that way. HE IS NOT! He is still making a living off his freak rookie year. We are seeing and living with the real Dak now.

    With that GREAT offensive line, with that GREAT running back, and the players (Cooper, Cobb, et al) they brought in JUST for him, he still went 8-8.

    Enough already. The PARTY GUY should be gone. Hey Jerry and Stephen wake up.
