With the 16th pick in the NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select…

Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

Selection made by Steven Mullenax, The Landry Hat

Here is the analysis on the selection:

Although the Cowboys preferred picks are gone (Barr, Donald and Manziel), Dallas will be thankful Lewan falls to them as he’ll help solidify the Cowboys offensive line. Dallas’ current starting right tackle, Doug Free, will be moved to guard alongside Ronald Leary and center Travis Frederick. Lewan and Pro Bowl left guard Tyron Smith will bookend the Cowboys offensive line for the next ten years. Free is in his final contract year and it’s unclear if Dallas will choose to re-sign the 30-year old. So selecting a guard later in this draft might also be in the cards. Wideout Brandin Cooks is also a possibility here.
