A Recap on the Cowboys' Draft
Credit: Sideline Insider
It's been about a week since the NFL draft, and there were plenty of great drafts by nearly all NFL teams.....and one terrible draft by a pretty terrible team (looking at you Bears), but that's another story for another time.
The Cleveland Browns appear to have gotten one of the best draft picks, and if everything pans out and Myles Garrett turns out to be everything he was (over) hyped for, then the Browns will be making the right moves down the right path.
However, I want to talk about one team in particular: The Dallas Cowboys.
First off, how 'bout Drew Pearson killing the Eagles fanbase?
Anyway, going into the 2017-2018 season, the Cowboys had a very depleted defense due to letting many of their veterans walk to other teams. This coupled with a mediocre at best secondary, basically meant their defensive line made most NFL team’s offensive lines look like the best in the league.
Well it looks like Cowboys defensive coordinator, Rod Marinelli might be getting what he wanted, and the team is hopefully in the process of patching up the entire defense.
In fact, it seems as if the Cowboys dedicated the entire draft to fixing their defensive line. Their picks for the first, second, and third rounds were all defensive players, which is something the Cowboys haven't done in 34 years.
They drafted defensive end Vidauntae “Taco” Charlton in the first round with the 28th pick of the draft, and only picked up two offensive players out of their 9 picks: A much needed KR/WR in Ryan Switzer, and star WR Noah Brown out of OSU with their last pick.
They also picked up two-time Big Ten defensive back of the year Jourdan Lewis and cornerback Marquez White, who are filling spots the Cowboys desperately need to be filled.
All the Cowboys need is a great defense, and then they will be a Super Bowl caliber team. After this draft, it looks like they might be on their way.
So, watch out NFCE teams and the rest of the NFL. If you are a Cowboys hater, you better buckle up. After this year of their new defense being rookies, they have a high chance to go all the way to the Super Bowl with OROTY Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant.
Think the Cowboys have potential with this new defensive lineup? Let me know in the comments.
