NFL Draft Wishlist: Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are another team on the rise.  They have enough talent on both sides of the ball to compete with any team in the NFL.  With a need based draft the Cowboys can become one of the most well rounded teams in the NFL.  The Cowboys should look for a franchise safety or defensive lineman as well as an offensive lineman who could help add depth to and solidfy the Dallas offensive line.

Round 1 – Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas – The Cowboys love making sexy picks, this year they can make a sexy pick from one of the fanbase’s favorite schools and have it fill a major need.  Vaccaro headlines a strong safety class and upgrades a much improved but still building Dallas Cowboy secondary.  He also may be the best overall player on the board in the bottom of the top 20.

Round 2 – Terron Armstead, T, Arkansas Pine Bluff –Terron Armstead has Dallas Cowboy written all over him.  For one, he fills a major need for the Cowboys on the offensive line.  For an offensive lineman he’s quick and athletic, dazzling scouts at the combine with a 4.71 40 yard dash, a speed unheard of for an offensive lineman.  Now, add that he’s an Arkansas football player like Jerry Jones.  I can just see those two hitting it off big time during interviews.  Regardless of all that extra curricular stuff, Terron Armstead would be a great grab and upgrade at the right tackle spot on Dallas’ offensive line.


Sleeper Pick – Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU – Montgomery is a solid player, a 2 time 1st team All-SEC defensive end, Sam should be a 1st rounder, but right now is operating with 2nd-3rd round draft stock.  This is a player who played well against the toughest competition in Alabama, South Carolina and Clemson.  If he does indeed fall to round 2 or 3, he’ll most definitely be worth the pickup for a team that needs a defensive end with first round potential.

    This would be a good selection. I would prefer a Warmack, Cooper, or Flucker at 18.
    Kawann Short DT in 2nd.
    Eric Reid or T.J. McDonald FS in 3rd.
