The draft rolls on, and so do we. At some point, the Cowboys will get their pick, until then, enjoy the draft.

This is an open thread for draft chat.


Rumors:


Cowboys 2020 draft picks:

Round 1, pick 17 (No. 17 overall)
Round 2, pick 19 (No. 51 overall)
Round 3, pick 18 (No. 82 overall)
Round 4, pick 17 (No. 123 overall)
Round 5, pick 18 (No. 164 overall)
Round 5, pick 33 (No. 179 overall)
Round 7, pick 17 (No. 231 overall)


Cowboys needs:

CB - With the loss of Byron Jones in free agency, and with Chobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis needing new contracts in 2021, the team needs to add some young talent.

EDGE - Robert Quinn took his 11.5 sacks to Chicago leaving a hole on the right side. The Cowboys hope to get Randy Gregory back, and hope that new signee Aldon Smith will also be re-instated, but they can’t count on either/both returning and being ready to play.

Wide receiver - Randall Cobb proved to be a more-than-worthy replacement to Cole Beasley in the slot, but now he’s left for the Texans. The Cowboys have a top-tier 1-2 punch in Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, but the cupboard is a little bare after that.

Safety - The signing of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix helped alleviate this problem, but it was only a one-year deal. Xavier Woods is also scheduled for a new deal in 2021. The Cowboys need to add some young talent.

Others: linebacker, tight end, center
