With the 129th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys select:

Pick Analysis. 129. Scouting Report. Tight End. Virginia. Jelani Woods. player. 123

The Dallas Cowboys have been connected to several Tight Ends during the draft process. Being a top 30 visit solidifies the team’s interest in Virginia’s Jelani Woods.

Woods is one of this draft’s fast risers. In February, he may have been seen as a late day 3 pick. With his impressive size and testing scores Woods has scouts looking at what could be. Now he finds himself as an early day 3 selection. There’s no doubt the 6’7″ 259lbs Reshirt Senior flashes the potential to be everything you want in a Tight End. As the draft process continues, this player could continue to ascend.

Woods was recruited to Oklahoma State as a dual threat Quarterback. After a position change followed by a transfer, Woods finally broke out at Virginia in 2021 with 44 catches for 600 yards and 8 touchdowns. Perhaps the rawness and inexperience at the position keeps him in the forth round range. If it does the Cowboys should celebrate.

With the 155th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys select:

Scouting Report. Tackle. TCU. Obinna Eze. player. Pick Analysis. 155. 123

The Dallas Cowboys have a number of concerns to address on the offensive line. They addressed Left Guard in round 1. Now they’ll address depth in round 5 by taking TCU Tackle, Obinna Eze.

Few Tackles in this class possess the impressive traits of Eze. Standing at 6’7″ 321lbs, the Horn Frog’s Left Tackle will have little issue filling out an NFL uniform. After letting La’el Collins go and few knowing what the Cowboys have in second year player Josh Ball it’s important for Dallas to add competition.

Eze plays with good feet. Functional getting to the second level and his rare length is a huge part of his success. Dallas is getting Eze in the 5th round because his strength doesn’t match his frame. He has a slinder lower body and only put up 18 reps of 225lbs when testing. There’s also no question he will need work on his technique.
