After making the selection of Alabama CB Trevon Diggs in the second round, the Cowboys look to find another key piece to the puzzle in the third round. With CeeDee Lamb and Diggs already in the bank, the general consensus was that the Cowboys were crushing this draft. Could it continue?
I think the #DallasCowboys should pick Oklahoma DT Neville Gallimore if still available at 82... #NFLDraft @NBCDFW @1053thefan— Pat Doney (@PatDoneyNBC5) April 25, 2020
Hot dang, now we’re cooking with grease. RJ? What do you think?
The Cowboys need to draft the player that they think can help their football team the most with their third-round choice.— RJ Ochoa (@rjochoa) April 25, 2020
Anything else would not make sense to me.
Well, he makes a point there.
At pick 82, the Cowboys drafted NEVILLE GALLIMORE, DT, OKLAHOMA

Let’s see what some of the reaction was to the Cowboys adding some beef to the middle of their defensive line.

Neville Gallimore is an appropriate value imo but not my preferred DT though— John Owning (@JohnOwning) April 25, 2020
More reaction with a lot of very positive takes.
Love Neville Gallimore. Watched every snap he played at OU and he got better and better. Plays HARD and STRONG and DISRUPTS. Makes things HAPPEN. A steal here.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) April 25, 2020
Cowboys are ripping the doorknob off this draft. Every pick they've made was much higher on the @PFF draft board— Mike Renner (@PFF_Mike) April 25, 2020
17. Ceedee Lamb (PFF board: 6th)
51. Trevon Diggs (31st)
82. Neville Gallimore (51st)
Through first two days, I'm not sure anyone has drafted better than Cowboys:— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 25, 2020
I love Neville Gallimore. He’s raw, but the athletic upside is tremendous.— Connor Livesay (@ConnorNFLDraft) April 25, 2020
32nd overall player at 82nd overall.
It’s not a virtual Pro Day, but here is #Oklahoma DT Neville Gallimore — 6’2, 305 lbs— standing and dunking. The late 1st rounder/early 2nd rounder got some hops. pic.twitter.com/0yPFMB9Z8E— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 22, 2020
#7 - Ceedee Lamb— Jeff Cavanaugh (@JC1053) April 25, 2020
#33 - Trevon Diggs
#70 - Neville Gallimore
The rankings from @dpbrugler for the Cowboys picks that were made at 17, 51, 82. That's some nice work.
Okay, but this is a good player and it’s good value, jeez! More Kool Aid!

Thank you!!! Look, the Cowboys need defensive help and they have knocked it out of the park in that sense:
I guess the Cowboys decided this weekend would provide them with an opportunity to improve their roster a lot ...... Sooner? .... than they anticipated.— David Helman (@HelmanDC) April 25, 2020
One particular Cowboys receiver was very happy:
