It’s official. With the 241st overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys have selected Oregon defensive end Jalen Jelks. The Cowboys continue to beef up their defensive line with another draft prospect, making three additions in the draft.

Long-limbed edge worker who might be best suited as a 3-4 outside linebacker unless he can add much needed strength and mass. As a junior interior defender, Jelks was often physically outmatched, but he showed the tenacity and talent to still be productive and disruptive. Some teams will struggle with where he fits from a position standpoint, but he could challenge for reps early in his career as a designated pass rusher along the interior in sub-packages.
