New live thread here.

It’s finally here. The 2018 NFL draft is about to get underway, and it’s time to find out what the rest of the NFL does as we lead up to the Dallas Cowboys pick at #19. Will the Cowboys go wide receiver, guard, linebacker, defensive tackle or surprise us with a different pick? Stay tuned and feel free to discuss the rest of the draft in the comments below.

Cowboys Needs:

Wide receiver: The Cowboys reeving corps struggled in 2017, and that was before they released Dez Bryant. Adding Allen Hurns helped, but they could still look for more firepower in a Dak-friendly offense.

Guard/Offensive line: Jonathan Cooper moved on, and the Cowboys didn't get a sure-fire replacement in free agency. There is still a discussion about moving La’el Collins back inside, so they need a guard or right tackle.

Linebacker: Anthony Hitchens was a solid part of the rotation, but he’s gone. Sean Lee is the main man but his injury history is a problem. Jaylon Smith is still tying to regain his form pre-injury. Dallas could use another piece here.

Defensive tackle: The Cowboys had to play Maliek Collins out of position for much of the year, and the run defense suffered for it. Collins was also not as effective as he was in 2016. A big 1-tech with 3-tech traits would be nice.
