Zay Flowers, Darnell Washington are among names you should like on draft day

With the draft within weeks, we all have seen plenty of names visit , hoping their name is called when the Cowboys are on the clock.

With the best in recent memory for the , this draft feels slightly different.

It is the first draft in a long time that Dallas can go into with a clear focus on adding depth and getting better. They finally don't have any glaring needs like years prior.

With adding and via trades last month, the Cowboys are in a prime position to take the best available player.

The Cowboys have had several future NFL players visit with them. I have highlighted a few guys below that I would like to see the team take a chance on.

This is nothing more than players I either watched in college or did some research on after they visited with the team before this month's draft.

Zay Flowers

is a heck of a football player. If we are honest, he won't fall to No. 26, but if he did, I would love the Cowboys to take him.

It is always hard to tell how a draft will go. Call me crazy, but if Flowers and were in the , I would take Flowers.

simply last longer than running backs.

Flowers is a more undersized wideout, but he broke the Boston College single-season record for touchdown receptions (12) and finished with 78 receptions and 1,077 receiving yards.

Cooks could be gone after 2023, and drafting Flowers would allow them to hang onto him and for the long term.

Darnell Washington

The from Georgia, , is one of my favorite players in the draft.

Not only do I like him for the Cowboys as a possible second-round pick, but It also helps that he was the only tight-end prospect the Cowboys met with.

He is a big body and an above-average blocker. He can catch the football and has higher-end speed for a guy his size.

We understand this team wants to run the football; per what has been telling us, it might be hard to find a better guy in this class at the tight end position than Washington doing that.

If he is there in the , I am all for jumping on him and taking him. Let him compete with and .

All three could have the same impact that did a year ago.

Jaquelin Roy

If the Cowboys still have one issue going into the draft, it may be the need for more depth on the . I will first tell you I knew nothing about .

I did some homework after I noticed he visited with the team.

He is a player that is slated to go in the later rounds on most draft boards. Cowboys was in attendance at his .

Roy is 6'3″ and 305 pounds. He dealt with a hamstring , which limited him at the combine, but he ran a 5.13 in the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day.

Roy might be sitting pretty for the Cowboys to take on the second or third day, depending on how the draft goes.

Roy started 12 of 13 games a season ago for LSU. He finished with 49 tackles (3.5 tackles for loss), a half-sack, and a fumble recovery.

It is always hard to predict what a team might do until the day of, but the three guys above are who I would enjoy if the team took them.

Flowers might go in the first round, but Washington might still be around in round two. Roy could be a steal if they grab him on day two or three.
