In the last few years, Cowboys invested most of their first round picks into the offensive line. The players they brought in were all Pro Bowlers in years after they were drafted. Left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick, and guard Zack Martin are the core of America’s Team offense. This year, if the best player in the draft available at No 19 spot turns out to be an offensive lineman, Cowboys will probably pick him up.
Yes, Big D has needs for players across the board, but in the first round, it’s more about quality than the position. Bringing another O-lineman into their group of potential Hall of Famers is a good move. With their history of picking quality players in the first round on the offensive line, Cowboys will probably make the right choice in April this year.
Many people believe that Dallas has pressing needs at WR, linebacker, or safety position but they could also improve up front. They need a new left guard because last years starter Jonathan Cooper will be a free agent. The second player on this position is veteran Byron Bell who is also entering free agency. Dallas franchise will probably re-sign one of them, but a new player is a must at this position.
Fans of Dallas Cowboys believe that they need to draft a wide receiver or defensive tackle at 19, but there probably won’t be any available guy that fits the description at those positions. Yes, No19 guarantees a quality player but most likely not the one that suits Cowboys primary targets.
From the players that play on the O-line and are going to be available at 19 according to various mock drafts are Georgia’s guard Isaiah Wynn or UTEP’s Will Hernandez. Players such as WR Calvin Ridley from Alabama, Derwin James from Florida State, and Vita Vea from Washington probably won’t be available when the time comes for Cowboys to pick.
