Cowboys need to pass on drafting a tight end in 2024

I swear to the Almighty, if the Dallas Cowboys draft a tight end in the 2024 Draft – in any round – I'm going to need bail money. I'm not kidding. Going into last year's draft I pointed out Dallas' poor history when drafting a tight end in the early rounds. They went ahead and did it anyway. I think we can all agree that the Luke Schoonmaker pick in the second round last year was a wasted pick. Schoonmaker's stats were abysmal. He also cost the Cowboys a win in Philadelphia by running his route too short. Fortunately, the loss did not deny Dallas the NFC East title. But in 2024 the Cowboys h ..read more

In under two weeks, the 2024 Dallas Cowboys draft class will be set in stone with the start of the NFL Draft. This is the biggest event of the offseason for many teams, and the Cowboys are no different. They need an influx of talent after losing out on countless free agents and moving on from players of their own. Dallas needs new starters at multiple spots and more depth pieces on the roster. Cowboys needs: Starting LT Starting C Starting RB Top 3 DT 3rd WR 3rd or 4th LB 4th CB EDGE depth Cowboys draft picks that made an impact last year: none We got this — Jeff Cavanaugh (@timeforjeffrey ..read more

Wide Receiver is a dire need for Cowboys in 2024 Draft
Inside The Star » NFL Draft

As mentioned on Thursday, most mock drafts have the Dallas Cowboys going after an offensive lineman with their first pick in the NFL draft in two weeks. A few have them taking lineman in the first two rounds. And I stand by the statement that they do not need to do so. The Cowboys more urgent needs are at running back, wide receiver, and either a middle linebacker or defensive tackle to shore up their run defense. In Thursday's post, I had the Cowboys taking a running back with their first pick – either at No. 24 or in a trade back into the early second round. Which leaves their original seco ..read more

Will the Cowboys prioritize Defense in ’24 NFL Draft?

Heading into the 2024 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys defense is reeling. They have, so far, lost six defensive players to free agency, or, in Leighton Vander Esch's case, medical retirement. This is a unit that cost Dallas badly once the lights got bright in 2023. In nine games against opponents in the top 15 for total offensive yards, the Cowboys defense gave up an average of 360 total yards. That ranks 26th in the league for yards allowed per game. This weakness to perform against top offenses is, in large part, what ended their season in the playoffs. With a new defensive regime under Mike ..read more

Cowboys 1st 2024 Draft pick must be a Running Back
Inside The Star » NFL Draft

Most of the mock drafts for next month's NFL Draft have the Dallas Cowboys laser-focused on taking an offensive lineman. A few have them spending both their 1st and 2nd round picks on the line for that matter. All of them are dead wrong. Should the season start today, the Cowboys have the players on the roster to start a solid offensive line. What they don't have is a bell cow running back to take some of the pressure off of quarterback Dak Prescott. And that is why Dallas should make their first pick of the 2024 Draft a running back. The only question is: Do they make him a first round sele ..read more

I'd like to think I have a knack for getting great imaginary value from using Pro Football Focus' mock draft simulator to whip up the best draft for the Dallas Cowboys. Nobody really cares what my thoughts are when I tweet them out into cyberspace, but let it be an expert and everyone is all ears. I don't blame them. These guys are experts for a reason. They have connections across the league to information that the everyday fan can only dream of. ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. dropped his final mock draft of the offseason a whole 16 days before the draft took place, and his Cowboys pic ..read more

The Cowboys trading up in the 1st round shouldn’t be ruled out

We are less than three weeks away from the 2024 NFL Draft and fans are brimming with anticipation at the next big offseason milestone. The Chicago Bears are officially on the clock and if you know anything about football, it's clear that it's QB Caleb Williams or bust. After the first pick in the draft, it's a mystery what will happen within the top five or top ten, and even more of a mystery what will happen in the rest of the first round. How many trades will we see? How many quarterbacks will be drafted? Another big question draft pundits like to answer is whether a team plans to stand pat ..read more

The 2024 NFL Draft is now 18 days away and the air is thick with anticipation throughout Cowboys Nation and the rest of the NFL. Will McClay & Co. have been working tirelessly because the draft is the main pipeline to improve the Cowboys' roster. Jerry and Stephen Jones have emphasized the draft and developing their own guys as opposed to utilizing free agency for talent. It's a frustrating strategy. Especially this offseason where the fanbase wants the Cowboys to be “all-in”, yet they once again only signed one cheap outside free agent. That player was former Viking LB Eric Kendricks, an ..read more

Eagles’ mock draft would make them the favorites in the NFC

As the 2024 NFL Draft approaches, pro days and 30 visits are in abundance while teams and draft prospects prepare for the big day. The Dallas Cowboys are the team that perhaps relies more on the NFL Draft than any other team for the development of their roster. Jerry Jones and the rest of the front office have shown us that they only rely on outside free agents for depth on cheap one-year deals. It's been many years since they have invested heavily in free agency, and that strategy has fielded competitive teams year in and year out. The Philadelphia Eagles are right on par with the Cowboys ov ..read more

Mock draft shows Giants will usher in a new era at QB

The 2024 NFL Draft is 21 days away and the Dallas Cowboys front office is diligently preparing for the big day. Dallas doesn't draft until the bottom fourth of the first round but few expect them to stay put with the 24th pick. Free agency has left the Cowboys roster without 13 key contributors on the field, and the only addition besides re-signing a few of their own players has been LB Eric Kendricks. Cowboys Nation has been up in arms about the lack of activity from a front office that recklessly used the term “all-in” when they had no intention of the phrase meaning the same as it means to ..read more
