We’ve made it to the final day of the NFL draft, Day 3. The Cowboys have six more picks today, adding to their five picks on the previous two days. Dallas has yet to select an offensive player in the draft although that is sure to change today.
This is an open thread for draft chat.
I find it interesting that Stephen Jones said the Cowboys were considering the possibility of selecting an offensive player at a couple of different points through the night... "offensive linemen, in particular. We might take a look at receiver as well."— Mike Leslie (@MikeLeslieWFAA) May 1, 2021
"Once again, that poor safety position -- missed out again." - Stephen Jones, mocking my pain.— David Helman (@HelmanDC) May 1, 2021
Asked if Vegas stole Trevon Moehrig from them @ 43, he adds: "I'm sure they think that." Say the Cowboys were focused on drafting a CB.

CB - It’s the most popular position for the Cowboys to use their #10 pick on. Chidobe Awuzie departed in free agency from a group that wasn’t very strong to begin with. Trevon Diggs is a piece to build on, but the Cowboys need help.
OL - Injury and age are catching up to various pieces of the Cowboys once-vaunted offensive line. Tyron Smith has an uncertain long-term future, and the middle of the line still has question marks.
DL - The Cowboys could use an infusion of talent at both defensive tackle and defensive end. Expect both positions to be among the picks this weekend. LB - Sean Lee retired, Joe Thomas left in free agency, and the Cowboys are undecided on Leighton Vander Esch’s fifth-year option. This is a need that has been building this offseason.
S - The Cowboys signed a few free agents to go with Donovan Wilson, but they were mostly one-year contracts. The long-term stability of the position is in doubt, and the small sample size of Wilson’s work only adds to that.
