Dallas Cowboys Draft Option No. 3
Zach Wilson, QB, BYU
This is a pick that the Dallas Cowboys make if crazy things happen and he is still there at number ten. With a lot of the top ten being rumored to draft a quarterback, Zach Wilson should be one of those quarterbacks. This is also a pick that depends on Dak Prescott.
If Dak and Dallas can come to an agreement on a deal and he plays at a high level, then Wilson doesn’t make sense at ten. Dallas Cowboys picking a quarterback at ten is based largely on Jerry Jones and how he feels about the future with Dak Prescott at quarterback. If things fall apart with Dak and he doesn’t heal good from the injury and Wilson is there, Dallas has to take him.
Zach Wilson is ranked third just behind Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields. He brings good athletic ability and is smart with the football. Wilson gives the Cowboys a quarterback that works through every option before tucking and running the football.
When watching Zach Wilson at BYU a couple things stood out in his abilities. One is the improvements that he made between 2019 and 2020. His timing when throwing the football and his confidence. Wilson is confident that he can make every throw and that he can make those throws with great accuracy.
Like mentioned above if Zach Wilson is available at ten then the Cowboys should go quarterback with that pick. If not then they should go to another primary position that is needed. There is also the possibility of trading the pick to fall back and gain more picks in other rounds.
