With the 167th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys select:

Defensive Tackle. Noah Elliss. 123. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Idaho. 167. player

Dallas Cowboy fans have long desired a run stuffing Defensive Tackle. The Dallas Cowboys look toward the back half of the draft once again to address fans concerns. Could Idaho DT Noah Elliss help put those worries away?

At the very least Elliss would be competing with last year’s sixth round selection Quinton Bohanna. At the very best, they once again draft on traits, toss in a nice pedigree and find themselves coming away with the steal of this Cowboys draft class.

Elliss may not be the most impressive athlete, though in context he moves decently on the field for his size. What he lacks in mobility he makes up for in strength and movement. His weight may be something that will need a consistent eye, but the body and the push Elliss brings is something the Dallas Cowboys could use.

With the 176th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft the Dallas Cowboys select:

123. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. LSU. 176. player. Kicker. Cade York

Former Dallas Cowboys Kicker Greg Zuerlein signed with the New York Jets over the weekend. Putting to bed any idea of the team bringing him back on a smaller contract. Leaving the team to either sign an outside free agent or draft a kicker. An area the Cowboys have seen inconsistency from since the decline and departure of Dan Bailey, who Dallas took as an UDFA in 2011.

If the draft pool is where your greatest success came from then perhaps it’s best to use a resource and invest in the drafts best kicker, LSU’s Cade York.

The Dallas Cowboys are getting York who has an 84.6% career hit rate, including 79% from 50 yards+ and a 57 yard game winner under his belt.
