FRISCO – History shows the Dallas Cowboys may be a bit of a wild card during the NFL Draft. After a disappointing silence to free agency, the focus now turns to how “useless” Jerry Jones and company can use Dallas’ 24th overall pick.
There is no denying that the Cowboys have made some of the best NFL Draft decisions in recent years; Recent examples are the likes of CeeDee Lamb in 2020 and Micah Parsons in 2021. The Cowboys look to hit another home run in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Maybe, just as important is Dallas to avoid a strike. The Draft Network made a list of draft errors that every NFL team should avoid this season, and for the Cowboys, this is …
Priority for Wide receiver on the offensive line
The Cowboys offense decided to split with some offensive players this season, losing to receivers Cedric Wilson and Amy Cooper, who changed the power of their passing attack. They were the least capable of joining Michael Gallup with CeeDee Lamb, but their depth has been removed indefinitely.
To make matters worse, the offensive line is not as strong today. Adding an offensive lineman in the first round costs more for quarterback Dick Prescott’s success than forcing the receiver. In particular, with this talent pool of recipients, they can find a capable third wide receiver the next day.

The Cowboys are still the favorite (-115) to win the NFC East Division in 2022. In order to be recaptured as a division champion, the Dallas must meet the requirements on the offensive line, receiver and edge rusher … but which position is the top priority?
Currently, the Cowboys are touring for 30 draft prospects at the team’s headquarters in Frisco. The list of possibilities includes three wide receivers who are first-round selections with a total of 10 possible first-round level players.
It is important to note, the depth of the receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft Class is one of the reasons the Cowboys turn the page on Emery Cooper.
Dallas ‘offensive line took a big hit with the release of Lily Collins, and Conor Williams’ departure in free agency. While the Cowboys are pointing out that an offensive lineman should be elevated in the draft, Jones also said that “off the pressure” and “keep the draft pure” they would like to address the offensive line in free agency. in front.
How do they smell ?!
Jerry Jones and Dave Sanders
While a receiver may look more shiny in the first round, perhaps preferring the offensive line will give Prescott the best shot in this season’s game.
Historically, Dallas has produced and developed talented positioning stars including Hall of Fame talent such as Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, Tony Dorset, Emm Smith and more. On the other hand, the Cowboys also lost people like Montana (1979), Randy Moss (1988) and Mike Singletary (1981). It’s part of the game here … and thus one of the big mistakes to avoid.
