2. Cornerback, Kristian Fulton


Kristian Fulton is another player the Dallas Cowboys probably considered at Pick 17 should their top picks be gone. Regarded by some as the CB3 of the draft, Fulton is a sticky corner with a fairly high floor. Primarily a man coverage CB, Fulton brings length and size to the outside (6-foot-0, 200lbs).

Fulton, a former 5-star recruit, brings strong athleticism and a lot of physicality to the CB position. He’s not a great tackler but he’s eager to mix it up against WRs. His change of direction and his ball skills aren’t optimal but he’s fairly safe as a prospect and excellent value early in the second round.

3. Cornerback, Trevon Diggs


Trevon Diggs is one of the most promising CBs still on board, largely because of his size (6-foot-2, 2017 lbs) and natural ball skills. If the Dallas Cowboys want to replace Byron Jones with another long and physical corner, Diggs is the guy.

Pro Football Focus gave Diggs the highest coverage grade in the Power 5 when in man coverage. The former receiver has elite hands for a DB and knack for the big play. He doesn’t have great catch-up speed or change of direction so he’s not the most versatile CB on the board, but if the Dallas Cowboys are looking for turnovers and high-end potential, Diggs is their guy.
