NFL Draft 2019 live thread II: Cowboys needs & discussion, draft order

Follow along with the 2019 NFL Draft and discuss all the moves.

NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Our second open thread for discussing the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.

It’s finally here. The 2019 NFL draft is about to get underway, and it’s time to find out what the rest of the NFL does as the Cowboys sit out the first round. Unless the Cowboys shock us all and trade back into the first round, we’ll be sitting this one out secure with Amari Cooper. Feel free to discuss the draft in the comments below.

Cowboys Needs:

Safety: Xavier Woods is one piece of the puzzle but the Cowboys are looking to upgrade from Jeff Heath. Based on their pre-draft visits, they certainly are making the position a priority. Keep an eye on how many safeties go in the first round, especially the names Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Johnathan Abram, Juan Thornhill and Taylor Rapp.

Defensive Tackle: David Irving is no longer here, and the Cowboys were soft at times up the middle last year, especially when the Rams ran all over them in the playoff game. With Maliek Collins and others in the final year of their contract, solidifying the position is important.

Running Back: The Cowboys need a backup for Ezekiel Elliott. They will pick one at some point in the draft.

Tight end: Jason Witten is back on a one-year deal, and Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz have potential. But getting a true receiving weapon at the position would add a new dimension to the offense.

Defensive end/cornerback: You can’t have enough of either.
