Dallas Cowboys Round 5, Pick 179

Caden Sterns, SAF


Caden Sterns is rated as the 145th prospect so finding him here offers pretty strong value. Normally I wouldn’t prearrange a “steal” like this, but we see the safety position fall in drafts every single year and the simulator shows that happening here quite often.

As such, there’s a really good chance some decent safeties fall to the Dallas Cowboys here at 179. Whether it’s Sterns, Tyree Gillespie, or Reed Blankenship this spot in the draft is going to offer a deal at safety. Since Dallas is severely lacking in the safety department, this is a good time to strike.

Dallas Cowboys Round 6, Pick 194

Josh Imatorbhebhe, WR


Another Combine snub was Josh Imatorbhebhe from Illinois. The 6-foot-2 215 lb. receiver is a diamond in the rough here at pick 194. He possesses an explosive first step, tremendous deep speed, elite jumping ability and dominant 50/50 ball traits.

He’s a raw player who projects as a bit of a project at the X spot, but he’s smart and hard working. The former 4-star recruit set the scouting world on fire when he posted a 47.1-inch vertical coming out of high school. That’s over an inch more than the NFL combine record. It’s easy to see Josh being a dominant force in jump ball situations as a pro and given his size, strength, and length – a whole lot more.
