Dallas Cowboys Draft

Round 3, Pick 99

SAF, Andre Cisco

As explained earlier, the Dallas Cowboys have needs at both safety spots this offseason. Xavier Woods is sure to leave and Donovan Wilson is fairly one dimensional in his play. We snagged a replacement in for Woods in Round 2 when we drafted TCU star, Trevon Moehrig. And Wilson serves as a great in-the-box option next to him (in the right situations).

But another safety, one who won’t get lost in coverage and can handle duties deep in Cover-2 looks, is still needed. After all, this is a passing league and you can never have enough coverage guys on the backend.

Andre Cisco is great value at Pick 99. Like all the other covermen we’ve drafted, Cisco has elite ballskills. He’s led the ACC in interceptions the last two seasons. He’s not all that big (6-foot-0 203 lbs.) or a very fierce tackler, but he makes up for it in his ability to make plays on the ball in coverage.

The Draft Network’s Joe Marino specifically points out his best role is playing the robber role. Dallas, no strangers to the single high, could use him as that SS robber who disguises his coverage and sneaks into the box as well as an option to use in deep zone.

Cisco and Wilson would be great rotational pieces next to Moehrig on defense and in big nickel looks, all three could play. Very lucky to round out the secondary in the top-100 picks. That’s an achievable goal if the Cowboys trade back to gain extra picks.
