a draft class that, they hope, will justify the way that they have approached team-building this offseason. It was not shocking at all to see Dallas sit out the major parts of free agency, but the reason that was so often listed was that the draft had yet to come. Well the draft cometh which means it is officially go time.
It is certainly possible that the Cowboys net a class that creates confidence; we all have a rooting interest in the team doing well. Unfortunately, though, there are two sides to every coin which means it is also possible that this draft falls apart for the Cowboys and they don’t get what they want.
Sometimes one can lead to the other as evidenced by last year’s first round. Dallas had their top two choices taken away in the two picks before them with the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos taking Jaycee Horn and Patrick Surtain, respectively, but they pivoted and landed Micah Parsons and fans are grateful that they did.
