The Dallas Cowboys had some fun this weekend selecting eight of the over 400 prospects looking to find a new team in the 2019 NFL Draft. Today, we’ll be discussing the outlook of these prospects and how they will impact the team.

Without a first round pick and a late second round pick, some luck would be necessary for the Cowboys to come away with a really good haul. For what it’s worth, the Cowboys did what they needed this draft.

The freshest memory of the Cowboys previous season is the 273 rushing yards they allowed against the Los Angeles Rams. Even if the defense only allowed 30 points, nothing hurts more than seeing C.J. Anderson gas the middle of our defense for big gains or seeing Jared Goff bait Jeff Heath into a hand-off only to run outside him for a first down.

In all, it felt the Cowboys would go safety with their first pick given the type of death on the Cowboys. With Woods being the best safety on the depth chart, the Cowboys had a combination of Kavon Frazier, Jeff Heath, and George Iloka. So it only makes sense that they went with Trysten Hill with pick number 58.

The first pick for every team sets the tone for the rest of their draft and the Cowboys selecting Hill did nothing different for them this time around. Today I’ll be discussing where each pick is currently on the depth chart, what their future may hold, and what the Cowboys were thinking at each draft pick.
