What is social media saying about the latest Cowboys pick?

NCAA Football: Alabama vs Duke Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

How could the Dallas Cowboys follow up last night’s pick of CeeDee Lamb? The supremely talented wide receiver fell right into the laps of the Cowboys, and Dallas, to the happiness and excitement of many, did not flinch. As a result, Dak Prescott gets to throw the ball to a wide receiver corps that features Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Lamb.

The first round was fun, but championship teams continue to find talent and fill out their roster on days two and three. Dallas entered the second night of the draft with needs at corner, safety, and pass rusher. There was some talk that the Cowboys would trade up in the second round, but they ultimately decided to stay put at 51.

With the 51st pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Cowboys grabbed a player that had some considerations as a borderline first-round selection: Alabama Crimson Tide cornerback Trevon Diggs.

Lamb AND Diggs is a helluva haul for the Dallas Cowboys through two selections.

The great Gil Brandt says that “Jerry’s boat is sailing smoothly so far.”

Adding a talent like Diggs is such a steal for the Cowboys. Many suggest that he may have been the pick at 17.

Diggs excels in press coverage, according to Pro Football Focus’ data.

Trevon’s older brother, Stefon Diggs, is happy with the selection:

This was undoubtedly a very special moment for the Diggs family.
