We are nearing the end of March and the Dallas Cowboys haven’t done a whole lot to improve the defense that finished among the worst in the NFL last season, although there are signs that they are now starting to get serious in free agency. Thankfully, the team-building portion of the offseason is far from over. It is no secret that most fans would like to see the Cowboys be bigger players in free agency, but the NFL Draft is typically where they like to make their way.
Dallas started the offseason with six selections in their arsenal and added four more by way the announced compensatory picks. Ten total selections gives the Cowboys plenty of ammunition to either use them all on players or trade around (remember that they traded up in the fourth round last year to take Tyler Biadasz).
With the dust around the compensatory picks finally settled, the NFL has announced the exact picks that each team has. Here are all ten picks that belong to America’s Team.
The Cowboys have a compensatory pick in each round from three through six. Their original fifth-rounder was what they sent to the Philadelphia Eagles when they traded up for Biadasz last year.
Dallas has four picks in the top 100 and six picks in the first four rounds. All of this doesn’t even mention that they own a top 10 pick by way of a very painful 2020 season, ideally all of these assets help make 2021 a far different experience.
