Dallas Cowboys: The OT Option

Remember the name Penei Sewell? Well, here we are. Sewell might be the best non-quarterback in the draft this year. He is a long-term option at tackle and could easily be a pick. I know – what about Tyron Smith and La’el Collins?

Well, if the Cowboys want to jettison some cap space, they could let either go or trade them, and instantly fill Sewell in. We don’t know what Tyron’s health will be, he hasn’t played sixteen games since 2016. Collins is having a hip issue, and we have zero clues on what that will look like next season.

Sewell isn’t the only player though. Names being thrown about are Micah Parsons the linebacker out of Penn State, Gregory Rousseau the defensive end out of Miami, and Patrick Surtain the corner from Alabama. There are more names, but the Cowboys could stay put and just go with someone that will help the defense. I doubt they go wide receiver, but Ja’marr Chase is certainly up at the top of the draft too.

Grabbing a player may not be what a lot of people initially want, but getting talent is always welcome. Picking third gives them some flexibility on who they could grab as they have a ton of options at third. Defense is what most want, but really a player that isn’t a quarterback could be almost anything.
