The last pick for the Cowboys draft goes back to the D-line. With Stephon Tuitt, Will Sutton, and (sleeper pick) Ethan Westbrooks already on board, the Cowboys pick the DT from Syracuse. Bromley is a big kid who earned his way into the draft. He has good ball quickness and strength, and should be able to make the D-Line rotation for the Cowboys.

Bromley improved production throughout college and has yet to hit his ceiling. For a 7th round pick he has a relatively high floor with no character red-flags to speak of. He needs to improve his killer instinct and plays a little too nice at times.


I really wanted a CB somewhere and would have liked to add a LB somewhere at the end. I’m perfectly fine neglecting the WR position until the 7th and think the 2 offensive linemen I added have a really good chance to make the starting lineup at some point in their careers. The pass rush and pass coverage were both improved and a potential QB of future was acquired. I would have really loved to add a top DE but we all know this team makeover is going to take more than one draft to complete, so it’s best not to reach on a player.
