Dallas Cowboys Draft Option No. 5
Patrick Jones II, EDGE, Pittsburgh
If the Dallas Cowboys want to go with their defensive line with their tenth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft they should draft Patrick Jones II. Jones II has been a complete monster at the University of Pittsburgh. His two best years were his junior and senior year at Pittsburgh.
In those two years at Pittsburgh, Patrick Jones II would record 24 tackles for loss and 17.5 sacks in the 22 games that he played in those two years. Jones II would give the Dallas Cowboys another solid pass rusher on the edge. The only problem is that he does not have much experience in the standup role as a edge rusher.
He possesses a great football IQ and picks up on things quickly on the field. Which gives the Dallas Cowboys a good feeling that he can learn the standup role if needed. His ability to get off the ball quickly and the pass rushing moves he possesses make him a good pick at ten for the Dallas Cowboys.
Patrick Jones II will need to put more mass on his frame to help him in the NFL. With his lack of mass he is still a great run stopper. His quickness and pass rushing moves help make up for his size. If adding mass is something he has to do that should not scare away the Dallas Cowboys from taking him with their tenth pick.
