With the draft season in full swing we look at some names to know for the Dallas Cowboys, last week was defense, this week is offensive names to know.
Last week we looked at some defensive names to know as we roll closer to the NFL draft for the Dallas Cowboys, there will be more names, but as of today these are some names to keep an eye on. Big boards are still being developed and potential rounds someone might be picked in will probably change as well.
We will roll through the position groups, and while we could easily touch on some of the big names in some groups, it would be safe to say certain names will not be someone the Cowboys will reach for early. For instance a quarterback is probably not going to be a first round pick, regardless of who drops.
So with that being said, the Cowboys could use some depth behind starter Dak Prescott. Do not expect a name like Tua Tagovailoa to be on the Cowboys’ roster even if he is there at 17. I would not be surprised if the Cowboys do decide to grab one in the later rounds though. Anthony Gordon may have added too much to his cause to be a later round pick.
Some of the names to watch are Nate Stanley out of Iowa, a pro-style offense might help him go in the middle rounds, and could be above the next name in Jalen Hurts, who did not help himself in Mobile at the Senior Bowl with accuracy issues. Tyler Huntley out of Utah is a mobile style QB who doesn’t display the deep arm strength and patience and might be later in the draft.
After the draft there are some names that could pop up starting with local product, Mason Fine out of University of North Texas. Fine needs work, but has enough tools with his arm to keep around. Another name similar to Fine would be Shane Buechele, the SMU quarterback, another QB who has some limitations, but certainly worth a look. The last name to keep an eye on would be Kelly Bryant out of Missouri who is intriguing with his knowledge of RPO offenses and ability to run through progressions. However, Bryant will need to work a lot at direct snaps under center before he could be more than a depth player.
