Dallas Cowboys Round 4, Pick 129: Clayton Tune, QB

The Dallas Cowboys are committed to develop a QB and have stated their intentions of drafting a QB for the first time since McCarthy took a flyer on Ben DiNucci. Cooper Rush is locked up for the next couple seasons and Dak Prescott is expected to get an extension in the next 12 months.

Regardless, grooming QBs is a McCarthy past time and something everyone should expect this year. The main question is who?

Clayton Tune is another local product. The 6-foot-2 220 pound prospect played at Houston racking up over 4,000 yards, 40 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions in 2022, earning All-ACC honors.

Tune is accurate and athletic. He can create plays and deliver on target passes under pressure. He doesn’t appear to go through many progressions in his reads and often decides who’s getting the ball before the play even fully plays out. His 4/1 TD/INT ratio is good but he throws a lot of questionable balls.

Tune will need time to work on his game and learn to move through progressions without telegraphing his intentions. That will likely positively impact his decision making because I think they’re all wrapped into one.

The Dallas Cowboys have so many links to Max Duggan is seems suspicious. He doesn’t appear to be a prospect with much of a ceiling and they may prefer a player they’ve shown low-key interest in instead, Clayton Tune.
