With two days of the 2023 NFL Draft in the books, the Dallas Cowboys have acquired three players to help their football team this upcoming season. After taking a run-stopping beast on Day 1 in the form of Mazi Smith, the team selected tight end Luke Schoonmaker and linebacker DeMarvion Overshown on Day 2. The Cowboys will now turn their attention to Day 3 as they draft four more players and then sign a new crop of priority free agents.

Who will the Cowboys be looking for on Day 3? We’ve done our best to compile a list of 18 prospects who the Cowboys may go after in the later rounds or look to sign after the draft (players are listed in order of average draft position according to NFL Mock Draft Database).

78. WR Tyler Scott, Cincinnati - with great speed and quickness this Bearcat receiver knows how to get open.
