2019 NFL Draft: Six defensive prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

2019 NFL Draft: Six defensive prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

The Cowboys are sitting in good shape at defensive end, but that doesn’t mean they won’t take one in the upcoming draft. The Dallas Cowboys recently signed their star pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence to a lucrative five-year deal. The team also traded for veteran edge rusher Robert Quinn. On top of all that, the team has several young pass rusher prospects like Randy Gregory, Taco Charlton, and Dorance Armstrong on their roster that they are hoping will be a part of their future. On the surface, it doesn’t appear as if the Cowboys need a defensive end, but things can change in a hurry....

Cowboys are already underdogs for several of their big games in 2019

Cowboys are already underdogs for several of their big games in 2019

People have their doubts. We’ve known the 2019 NFL schedule for a few days now, and a lot of people have begun to make arrangements for their fall. Trips are being scheduled, parties are being planned, and folks in the desert are adjusting lines based on who they think will win and who they think won’t. There are a lot of interesting teams heading into the 2019 season, shockingly another year following a Super Bowl win by the Patriots. Typically we see a bit of turnover in terms of playoff teams, the Cowboys were one and have failed to put together back to back seasons of that caliber...

2019 Cowboys Draft: Juan Thornhill might be the exact safety that Dallas is looking for

2019 Cowboys Draft: Juan Thornhill might be the exact safety that Dallas is looking for

We’ll know in about a week. We are less than a week away from acquiring some new members of the Dallas Cowboys. It’s the final days before Christmas and we’re not allowed to shake any of the presents underneath the tree. Dallas held their annual pre-draft press conference this past week and this is typically something that provides a lot of information on what they’re looking for. This year Stephen Jones did most of the talking which meant that Jerry didn’t have as much opportunity to tip the Cowboys hand, but it was still valuable nonetheless. Listening to either Jones member...

2019 NFL Draft: Six running back prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

2019 NFL Draft: Six running back prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

The Cowboys will be on the look out for a backup for Ezekiel Elliott but when will they pull the trigger? The Dallas Cowboy don’t have any glaring needs entering the NFL Draft and you can thank the crack-shot staff over at The Star for that. They’re sitting in pretty good shape, but there are some positions where they could use some extra depth and running back is one of those spots. Nobody touched the ball more than Ezekiel Elliott last season as he had a league-high 381 total touches and there were times during the season where you could sense it was catching up to him. The Cowboys...

Cowboys news: Dak Prescott negotiations could control rest of offseason

Check out today’s latest and greatest news surrounding America’s team! Cowboys invoke predictable tactics in Dak Prescott negotiations - Patrik Walker, 247 Sports Which side will present the best case to “win the deal”? That projection was made before the Seattle Seahawks made Russell Wilson the highest paid player in NFL history on a four-year extension worth $140 million, including $107 million in guarantees and a $65 million signing bonus, a market-setting deal that will have a direct impact on what happens with Prescott. While Jones has continually praised his franchise QB,...

2019 NFL Draft: Eight “flagged” prospects that could fall to the Cowboys in the second round

2019 NFL Draft: Eight “flagged” prospects that could fall to the Cowboys in the second round

The second round has always been one of chance for the Cowboys. The Cowboys have a deep history of taking risks in the second round. Whether it’s injury or off the field issues, history shows that they don’t mind spending their second-round pick on wild card players. In the past it’s been guys like Sean Lee, Randy Gregory, and Jaylon Smith, but with the draft coming up next week, are there any guys who could potentially fall into the Cowboys lap at 58th overall due to those “flags”?

State your case: who do you want to be Cowboys a week from today?

State your case: who do you want to be Cowboys a week from today?

Who are you going to bat for? We’re inside of a week to the 2019 NFL Draft officially beginning, but we’re just now a week away from when the Cowboys will likely add new players. Dallas doesn’t have a first-round selection thanks to trading for Amari Cooper last October, and while they could obviously trade into the top round it’s best for us to act as if they will watch the first 32 picks from home just like the rest of us. It will make for a boring Thursday, but Amari’s greatness helps soften that blow. My odds on pick 58:Juan Thornhill - 20%Jaylon Ferguson - 20%Isaiah Johnson...

2019 NFL Draft: 14 cornerback prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

2019 NFL Draft: 14 cornerback prospects for the Cowboys and when they should target them

There’s a good chance the Cowboys take a cornerback in the upcoming draft, but when? The draft is just a week away and it’s only a matter of time before the Dallas Cowboys have a new crop of rookies joining their football team. The front office has done a great job filling holes in free agency so the team can now concentrate on selecting good players. Sure, there are some positions that would be more advantageous to grab a top talent, but the team will not let that control their decision making process. Many positions are fair game, including cornerback. Despite spending a lot of draft...

Commitment issues: Cowboys may be considering life after Zeke

Commitment issues: Cowboys may be considering life after Zeke

It may be just caution or normal business, but the latest from the team can be interpreted more than one way. The Dallas Cowboys took care of their most important offseason priority when they worked out the new deal with pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence. That leaves them with a quartet of players who are seen, in some order, as the next ones they need to get done: Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and Byron Jones. The Prescott situation has been attracting all the attention of late in wake of Russell Wilson’s big new contract with the Seattle Seahawks. According to the team,...

Cowboys Draft 2019: Pick 128 in the 4th round may be the spot for Cowboys to land a WR with upside

Cowboys Draft 2019: Pick 128 in the 4th round may be the spot for Cowboys to land a WR with upside

The Cowboys can maximize the value of their fourth round pick by targeting a receiver. We know how important 30-visits are to NFL clubs and the Cowboys are one of those that use their visits diligently in the draft process. Knowing how likely it is that the Cowboys pick from their visitor’s list we can estimate that safety and defensive tackle are two positions they are targeting early. Four of the six safeties the Cowboys are keen on have late second-early third round grades and the three interior defensive line prospects are in the same boat. Day three of the draft is always where the...

Cowboys news: Gil Brandt says Cowboys picked right draft to trade out of first round

Gil Brandt says the Cowboys picked a good year to trade their first round pick with so much depth at positions they’re targeting. Hall-Of-Fame Scout Gil Brandt believes Cowboys chose right draft to trade away 1st rounder- Jori Epstein- USA TODAYAre the Cowboys missing out by not having a first-round pick? Maybe not. Hall of Fame talent evaluator Gil Brandt said Wednesday roughly 17 prospects are sure first-rounders. The tier below them is deep. “You’re going to find a whole bunch of players from about 17 to 70 that all look alike,” Brandt said. “So it’s an interesting draft and...

Look forward to more plays like this from veteran safety George Iloka | Film Room

Look forward to more plays like this from veteran safety George Iloka | Film Room

George Iloka signed a one-year deal with Dallas. If he has more plays like this, it will be money well spent. In this episode of Film Room, we’re taking a look at the Cowboys defense. While he may be coming off of a down season with his previous team, newly-signed safety George Iloka brings a lot to the table. With his 6’- 4”, 225 lb. frame, many think he is nothing more than an in-the-box strong safety, but that could not be further from the truth. In his 2016 game against Washington, the then-Bengals defender made a fantastic play to pick off the pass of quarterback Kirk Cousins....
