Today, we shall attempt to narrow down the offensive draft pick possibilities that the Dallas Cowboys will target in the NFL Draft.

After an excellent month of work in March. It doesn’t look like the Dallas Cowboys have any obvious weaknesses. A few spots remain up in the air.

The initial positions that come to mind are left guard, nose tackle, and right tackle. Don’t forget to include linebacker and wide receiver.

My focus will be on the offensive side of the ball for now and I’ll turn my attention to the defense at a later time.

This is the first installment of my two-part series. Examining which players would be a good fit for the Dallas Cowboys in the upcoming draft.

I believe Michael Gallup and Jalen Tolbert are on the clock. Yeah, sorry Jalen. Dallas has shown they will add another player at a position even if they have drafted one the year before.

Despite having Nahshon Wright and Kelvin Joseph as cornerbacks, the Dallas Cowboys still added Daron Bland. The same can be said for having Jabril Cox at LB. It didn’t stop them from selecting Damone Clark and Devin Harper in the draft. Quinton Bohanna did not stop them from selecting John Ridgway.

Two of the four 2022 draftees had successful outcomes. We are still not sure what to make of Jalen Tolbert, Devin Harper, and Quinton Bohannan.

It would be a mistake to assume the Dallas Cowboys aren’t interested in a player if he hasn’t been among the 30 or visited Dallas day. The Dallas Cowboys didn’t express any curiosity in Tyler Smith last year.

Dallas wants to keep their cards close to their chest. If this happens, other teams can jump ahead of yours in the draft. When one is too enthusiastic about a certain player.

The complete draft prospect visits have begun. Big Thanks to Charlie Campbell at Walter Football for compiling this data.

This is useful, but it isn’t always a clear sign of who the Dallas Cowboys are looking at. This can be a beneficial guide when we explore prospects and position requirements.

Trying to predict the direction the Dallas Cowboys might take. Mike McCarthy’s draft achievements in Green Bay should not be ignored.

During Mike McCarthy’s time in Green Bay, the Packers never selected a tight end in the first two rounds of the draft. In the second-round they added key wide receivers such as Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams.

During that period, the only offensive position they used a first-round selection on was offensive tackles Bryan Bulaga and Derek Sherrod. During McCarthy’s tenure as head coach, the Packers had 12 first-round picks, with 10 of those being devoted to the defense.

They were very successful in locating good value for their offensive line in the later stages of the draft. David Bakhtiari, J.C. Tretter, T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton – all Pro Bowl players – were chosen in the fourth round of the draft. Corey Linsley was chosen in the fifth round of the draft.

It is my intention to offer early and late round options. Let’s analyze all the position groups and attempt to determine the Dallas Cowboys’ draft path.
