We are now officially less than a month away from the 2021 NFL Draft beginning and the Jacksonville Jaguars being on the clock. Time is sort of flying this offseason, isn’t it? Things are getting really exciting when it comes to the upcoming draft and a lot of that is thanks to the trades pulled off between the San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins, and Philadelphia Eagles as last weekend began.

It is not only possible, but it is arguably very likely, that the Cowboys will watch offensive players be taken with every selection before them on April 29th. While the Kyle Pitts contingency would love to see true offensive nirvana at AT&T Stadium, this is ultimately an extremely good thing for a Cowboys team that needs help on the defensive side of the ball.

On the latest episode of The SB Nation NFL Show Pete Sweeney from Arrowhead Pride and I did our best to predict the first 10 picks of the draft and I outlined things surrounding how this impacts the Cowboys in the latest video on the Blogging The Boys YouTube Channel. You can watch right here.

The Denver Broncos present the biggest threat to take a cornerback right now, although the Detroit Lions are a bit of a wildcard under former Cowboys tight end Dan Campbell. Even if the Broncos did take say Patrick Surtain II, the Cowboys could still take Jaycee Horn or one of the tackles that would be there in that situation.

It seems extremely likely that the Cowboys are going to be staring at an option menu of Surtain, Horn, Micah Parson, and the option of trading back. If that were to be the case it would be difficult to argue with Surtain as the pick, but picking up more picks is always an appealing option.
