Today is the day. NFL fans all over wait for this day as much as they do the opening day on the regular-season schedule. The NFL draft starts tonight with round one and every team will try to rebuild their roster and be ready to compete for a Super Bowl.

Due to the Dallas Cowboys poor record in 2020, they will be selecting 10th in the first round. Whether they stay at that pick or decide to trade it remains to be seen. Popular choices for the Cowboys at pick #10 include cornerbacks Patrick Surtain II of Alabama and Jaycee Horn of South Carolina.

The Cowboys have 10 picks overall, but the general feeling is they will trade some of those to move up in a few different rounds. 10 rookies from the draft combined with UDFAs is a lot of rookies to run though the offseason and into training camp. But we’ll see if they actually do trade.

Below are the Cowboys picks followed by information on viewing the draft.

  • Round 1, pick 10
  • Round 2, pick 44
  • Round 3, pick 75
  • Round 3, pick 99
  • Round 4, pick 115
  • Round 4, pick 138
  • Round 5, pick 179
  • Round 6, pick 192
  • Round 6, pick 227
  • Round 7, pick 238
