Eric Kendricks, LB, UCLA
As of now, the Cowboys have excellent depth at the linebacker position. It looks like Sean Lee will play the weakside linebacker position, Rolando McClain will play the inside linebacker position, and Anthony Hitchens will play the strongside linebacker position. Andrew Gachkar and Jasper Brinkley are the backups. However, if the Cowboys want to make this unit elite, Eric Kendricks is a guy that would make sense for the Cowboys.
At 6-foot, 230 pounds, Kendricks doesn’t have excellent size, but he diagnoses plays extremely well. He has top-tier athleticism. He’s a sure tackler, as is the case by the numbers he put up in his collegiate career. Kendricks is a guy the Cowboys have coveted, so if he falls to the 47th overall pick, it wouldn’t surprise me if he were the pick.
