Follow along with the 2023 NFL Draft and discuss all the moves.

NFL: NFL Draft-Kansas City Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We have reached another milestone on the NFL calendar. It’s a huge day for NFL teams and fans alike as the 2023 NFL draft kicks off. This year the draft will be in Kansas City and the Cowboys hold pick 26 in the first round.

Let the fun begin!

This is an open thread for draft chat.

Cowboys 2023 draft picks:

  • Round 1, pick 26
  • Round 2, pick 58
  • Round 3, pick 90
  • Round 4, pick 129
  • Round 5, pick 169
  • Round 6, pick 212
  • Round 7, pick 244

Cowboys needs:

OG: The Cowboys lost Connor McGovern, last year’s starter, and have yet to really replace him in the lineup. Tyler Smith could be the guy if they wanted, but they might prefer him at tackle, especially given Tyron Smith’s injury history, and Terence Steele’s injury recovery.

TE: Dalton Schultz has moved on. The team has some options in Jake Ferguson and Peyton Hendershot, but Dallas may want more firepower and a possible starter.

RB: Dallas begins life without Ezekiel Elliott (unless they re-sign him). With Tony Pollard as RB1, the Cowboys could use a complement, especially with Pollard on a one-year deal.

WR: The team brought in Brandin Cooks giving them a solid top three, but depth is an issue. It hurt them last year, they will want to reinforce the position for 2023.

LB: With Micah Parsons spending the majority of his time as a lineman, the depth here is really thin, They will definitely draft one at some point.

CB: You can never have enough, and Stephon Gilmore may be only here for a year. They need to make a move to fortify depth and looking to the future.
