The Cowboys swung a few trades in the later rounds and added three more players to their 2019 haul.
Starting in the sixth round, with pick 213, the Cowboys finally addressed the safety position by selecting Texas A&M’s Donovan Wilson.

It took a while, but the Cowboys finally took a safety. Texas A&M’s Donovan Wilson went near end of 6th round at No. 213. Dallas comes right back in the 7th round & takes RB Mike Weber from Ohio State.— David Moore (@DavidMooreDMN) April 27, 2019
If the Cowboys wanted a guy that can hit, maybe Wilson is their man though that “WWE” stuff could draw a lot of yellow in the NFL.
A little snapshot of Donovan Wilson’s production for the Aggies:
Last season Donovan Wilson had 46 tackles, 14 assists, 10 missed tackles, and 15 stops. In coverage he was targeted 26 times and allowed 20 receptions for 280 yards, 5 TDs, 2 INTS, and 1 pass breakup.— PFF DAL Cowboys (@PFF_Cowboys) April 27, 2019
Finally, the Cowboys got a safety, taking Texas A&M’s Donovan Wilson in the sixth round. He was a full-time starter in 2019 and had 66 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions and five pass breakups.

Of course, we leave the floor to Dane Brugler for a scouting report:
A traits pick. Longshot to make the roster, but he has some box safety skills. https://t.co/YzxBCMxkZ9— Jonah Tuls (@JonahTulsNFL) April 27, 2019
With pick 218 in the seventh round, the Cowboys went back to the well of running back and selected one of their 30 pre-draft visits, Mike Weber, from Ohio State.

Mike Weber posted a Good #RAS with Okay size, Great speed, Poor agility at the RB position. pic.twitter.com/jkiXOKHsKc
In the seventh round, the Cowboys like to take guys they don’t want to fight for in the rookie free agency period:
Both backs the Cowboys took have playmaking ability and some are excited about the potential:
Imagine having Zeke, Pollard and Weber on the field at the same time. Teams wouldn't know where the ball is going— ✭CowboysNation✭ (@thatwatshesed86) April 27, 2019

Weber is built for the full-time duties if he were called upon:
Also like this a lot. Didn’t mind Pollard, but felt like they had to find a guy who could carry the ball 15-20 times if Elliott were out.— John Williams ✭ (@john9williams) April 27, 2019
With the Cowboys final pick, they took Oregon edge rusher, Jalen Jelks.
The Cowboys are really trying to beef up their defensive line, trench warfare is the key in the NFL.
Jalen Jelks. Cowboys grab a third pass rusher to round this thing out.— David Helman (@HelmanDC) April 27, 2019
At 6'5, Jelks is just as big as Joe Jackson. Taking a hard look at traits here, I guess.
Jelks has an 83 inch wingspan at 6'5, 256 pounds.— Marcus Mosher (@Marcus_Mosher) April 27, 2019
Dallas certainly has a type.
