Cowboys Draft 2020: PFF’s latest analytics-based mock has Dallas landing an elite cornerback

Cowboys Draft 2020: PFF’s latest analytics-based mock has Dallas landing an elite cornerback

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Not your average mock draft. It has been almost two weeks since Byron Jones joined the Miami Dolphins, and the gigantic contract he received was hardly surprising news to Cowboys fans. We have all been largely operating over this offseason as if Jones would be playing elsewhere in 2020, and that places cornerback near the top (if not at the very top) of needs that the Cowboys have. Pick at interception numbers all you want, but Jones’ production in terms of coverage will need to be replaced. Nobody was shocked to see the Cowboys and their typical...

Cowboys could potentially get good value in LSU safety Grant Delpit in the draft

Cowboys could potentially get good value in LSU safety Grant Delpit in the draft

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Once considered a top-10 pick, it is looking like Delpit will fall in the draft. Depending on who you ask, the Cowboys have a different priority position of need. Replacing Byron Jones with a corner in the draft class needs to be on the to-do list, bringing in a reinforcement at pass rusher after Robert Quinn left town is essential, adding a safety in a talented class must be considered, and the wide receivers in this class are other-wordly. At one point in time, it seemed that safety was the consensus top need for the Cowboys among draftniks....

Cowboys cited among teams losing the most free agent talent, but there’s a twist

*Photo by Joe Robbins/ It’s not free agency that has hurt the Cowboys. In the early stages of free agency, there were some tense moments for fans of the Dallas Cowboys. Everyone kind of knew that star corner Byron Jones would be leaving, and when he did to the Dolphins, it was just a confirmation of what we knew was going to happen. But then Robert Quinn left for the Bears and Randall Cobb went to the Texans. Suddenly, some real talent was exiting the Cowboys. Another couple of starters, Maliek Collins and Jeff Heath, also left the Star for greener pastures in Las Vegas. That’s five...

New Cowboys safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was named one of the biggest steals of free agency

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Clinton-Dix appears to be a smart signing by the Cowboys with the need in the secondary. Free agency helps shape teams in a major way in terms of how good they will be in the upcoming season. Adding veterans at positions of need is very helpful for teams that are a piece or two away from truly contending, or for organizations that do not want to go into the draft with one arm behind their back and be forced to draft for need instead of value. The Dallas Cowboys have seen some of their free agents walk out of town: Byron Jones to the Dolphins hurts the...

Q&A with Blogging the Boys: what are the Dolphins getting in Byron Jones?

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports Managing editor Dave Halprin answered questions from Craig Smith regarding the Dolphins’ heralded free agent signing. With the main wave of free agency behind us, it’s time to start getting to know some of Miami’s newest acquisitions, and none were more splashy than Byron Jones. Jones was drafted with the 27th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft by Dallas, with whom he spent his first five seasons. As such, I reached out to the managing editor of Blogging the Boys, Dave Halprin, who was kind enough to answer my questions about Miami’s new impact...

Dolphins’ Byron Jones reveals reason he signed with Miami

The Miami Dolphins landed one of the top defensive players on the market earlier this month, signing cornerback Byron Jones to a five-year, $82.5 million deal. But why did Jones join a Dolphins club that won just five games in 2019? He apparently sees a bright future in South Beach: “What really brought to me […] The post Dolphins’ Byron Jones reveals reason he signed with Miami appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Maurice Canady isn’t a household name but he could potentially make a name for himself in Dallas. [We have previously been profiling potential fits for the Cowboys but now free agency is here, and things are moving. Let’s start profiling the free agent acquisitions made by the Dallas Cowboys to see where they stand in their roster-building.] When free agency opened up and the Cowboys lost Byron Jones to the Dolphins, signing Maurice Canady did not drum up a ton of excitement.

Cowboys remaining free agents: Will any of them re-sign with the team?

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Cowboys whittled down their free-agent list, now we have to see if they do any more work. The Cowboys had a huge number of free agents heading into this 2020 offseason. Given that extensive list, not everybody was returning to the team (that doesn’t even happen in years with a smaller amount of free agents). Dallas had to make some hard decisions, like letting Byron Jones go, but now they have gotten through most of the list by either re-signing players, or seeing them sign contracts elsewhere. But there are still a few left. First, let’s take a look...

2020 NFL Draft: Who can possibly replace Byron Jones for the Cowboys?

2020 NFL Draft: Who can possibly replace Byron Jones for the Cowboys?

Cornerback options are needed. There is no question that Byron Jones is a big loss for the Cowboys, fortunately the 2020 NFL Draft is stacked with cornerbacks. Ohio State’s Jeff Okudah is commonly seen as the top cornerback prospect, but it is unlikely that he falls to the 17th overall pick. Who then is the second best corner in the NFL Draft? It depends on who you ask, and for that reason one of these three players could definitely be available for the Cowboys top pick with the 17th overall selection. Florida’s CJ Henderson He is a smooth, hippy player. The Gators use him in a...

Here are a couple things to keep in mind about the Cowboys approach in free agency

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports It’s business as usual for the Cowboys. The 2020 NFL Free Agency period is upon us as several big name players are committing to huge deals with new team. And for a team like the Dallas Cowboys who have a plethora of high demand players, it means saying goodbye to several of the players we’ve grown attached to over the years. Byron Jones left for South Beach. Robert Quinn is heading to the Windy City. And Randall Cobb joins a Houston receiving group that is now without DeAndre Hopkins thanks to a very perplexing trade the Texans made with the Arizona...

What the Eagles trade for cornerback Darius Slay means for the Cowboys

Photo by Tom Pennington/ A big name corner has arrived in the NFC East. The first wave of the 2020 free agency saw big-name wide receivers receive big deals (or be involved in a major trade): DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals, Stefon Diggs to the Bills, and Amari Cooper re-signed with the Cowboys. The cornerback market has seen some action as well. Byron Jones signed a huge deal with the Miami Dolphins on the first day of the tampering period, while rumored Cowboys targets Chris Harris, Jr. inked with the Chargers and Desmond Trufant signed with the Lions.
