While not much has happened around the Dallas Cowboys yet for the offseason, there are some rumors swirling. If those things happen, it could shape how they approach outside free agents and the draft.
Two of the biggest rumors are that the Dallas Cowboys are interested in signing Tony Pollard and have talked about a potential restructuring of Ezekiel Elliott.
Should both of those happen, an early running back is likely out of the question. There are also rumors surrounding Leighton Vander Esch and a one, Bobby Wagner, at linebacker. Then of course the talk that Tyron may be done in Dallas is another rumor slowly making its rounds.
Should all of those things happen, that leaves wide receiver, cornerback, left guard, and defensive tackle as arguably the top four needs. Should the Cowboys decide to let Donovan Wilson walk, safety could be a bigger need, but until that rumor happens, we will assume he is a target to bring back. I’m sure there will be more as the offseason progresses, but for now, we will look at those as truths.
The Dallas Cowboys have some rumors regarding certain positions so we hold those as truths and try a mock draft under those assumptions.
While some of the names will rise and fall, there is no consensus at the moment, so I use a combination of their boards along with where I have guys ranked at the moment. This is more about getting to know some of the players and some of the position groups likely to be addressed by the Dallas Cowboys.
With that said, let’s get underway.
