The Dallas Cowboys will be without a pick in the first round of this weekend’s NFL draft, after trading that pick for Amari Cooper.
Silver Star Nation insider Mickey Spagnola feels like with where the Cowboys roster is they won’t be looking to move too far off that 58th pick.
“Now stay put, as in maybe if somebody that really kind of piques their interest you move up somewhere higher in the 50s to maybe you know maybe 52, 50-something like that,” he said. “I know there’s a lot of folks kind of hoping that they can trade back into the first round, I just don’t see that as being a possibility the cost is way too high.”
As far as who they Cowboys will be looking at with that second round pick, Spagnola feels like this team needs to address their defensive line.
“Remember there’s no more David Irving, they’re not sure about Randy Gregory,” he said. “Even though that they signed Robert Quinn, in free agency, it’s only a one year deal if there’s no Gregory, he may be the starter there, but who’s the next guy up because Taco Charlton certainly hasn’t proven that he deserves one of those spots. “You got to have somebody behind the DeMarcus Lawrence. He’s coming off their shoulder surgery.”
Spagnola talked about the possibility of drafting a safety, but he said it doesn’t have to be with that 58th pick.
“They could use a safety but I don’t know that they need to take one in the second round,” he said. “When I look back to the end of last season, and they got beat by the Rams in that playoff game, the safety position, didn’t cause them to give up, 273 yards rushing to the Rams so that defensive line, I think could use some help.”
