The highlighted cells conveniently show the Cowboys draft picks this year. Here's how those picks came about:

  • The Cowboys still hold their original picks in the first four rounds (4th, 34th, 67th, 101st).
  • The Cowboys traded away their original fifth round pick (143rd) to the Raiders in exchange for WR Brice Butler and the 189th pick.
  • The Cowboys traded away their original sixth round pick (178) for the 246th pick in the last draft, with which they drafted TE Geoff Swaim.
  • The Cowboys traded their original seventh round pick (225) to Seattle for RB Christine Michael.
  • Pick 135, 212, 216, and 217 are compensatory picks.
  • Note for nerds: This draft has only 253 picks instead of the regular 256 because the Patriots (1st round) and Chiefs (3rd round) cheated, and the Rams used their fifth-rounder in the supplemental draft last year.

Given these draft picks, where do you think the Cowboys should draft a running back? Go ahead and vote in the poll below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
