With the 193rd pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select: David Bright, Offensive Tackle, Stanford
The Cowboys lack of depth on the offensive line became a problem in 2017. Tyron Smith suffered all season with injuries and play of the backup left tackles dug the Cowboys’ grave. Adding an offensive line swiss army knife like Stanford’s David Bright would really take a step in ensuring that would not happen again.
Bright played all across the line at Stanford. He logged snaps at left tackle, guard and right tackle, guard. His experience would be very beneficial as Tyron Smith has been prone to miss games and the left guard position has been a question mark for Dallas.
One of the things that scouts love most about him is his arm length. If he could develop better usage of his hands, he could be a real asset to any team’s line. Even though he is not as good as some of the other linemen in this class, Bright is coveted for his intangibles. He has a high football IQ and is extremely tough as he played through numerous injuries throughout his career.
Spending a late round pick on a lineman like Bright would do no harm and possible help solve some of the Cowboys’ problems from 2017.
