The Dallas Cowboys select three wide receivers in this draft but manage to sure up not only their offensive line but their linebacking corps. For a young quarterback, you could not ask for a better draft as Dak Prescott should have all of the weapons he needs to shine.

They did right by their defense in drafting replacements for both Hitchens and Wilber and managed to snag a hard-hitting safety. They patched up holes along the offensive line and allowed for much more competition all throughout the roster.

More from Dallas Cowboys

That will be the keyword at Cowboys camp this summer, competition. Personally, you could not ask for a better coupling of picks in the first and second round for this team. Addressing the two biggest needs of your roster early on and splitting top picks with both the offense and defense should pay off big by the time the season rolls around.

I do not want the Cowboys to reach on D.J. Moore but I also want him to be wearing a star on the side of his helmet come September. Trading up in the second should get the job done but in general Cowboy Nation should be prepared to see Sutton, Kirk, Ridley, or Moore as a player selected because there is just no telling how this draft will fall.

Originally I had Dallas taking three linebackers instead of three wide receivers, but there is so much talent at both positions it became fairly hard to decide. In the end, taking three wide receivers seemed to make sense as the Cowboys are currently second in the NFL in terms of spending at the position.

This would assure them not only depth but insurance in case they had to make any releases or trades in the near future. Overall productive draft, the team seems to be moving in the right direction, and hopefully, the Cowboys can get this lucky on draft day.
