2020 NFL Mock Draft: Cowboys Making Big Moves
The Dallas Cowboys are expected to make big moves in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Dallas currently only has a No. 17 pick to work with in the first round.
However, many believe that team owner Jerry Jones is going to work his magic and try to get something more in the lead-up to April’s big event.
Dallas has a ton of players entering free agency this offseason. Basic math suggests that it will impossible to retain all of them.
One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to replace bodies on your roster is via the draft.
According to Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, sources close to him have indicated that Jones wants to “make a big splash” on draft day.
While it is debatable what that means, it seems to signal that Jones wants to move up the board.
The Cowboys have reportedly been taking a close look at a lot of Ohio State kids.
While defensive end Chase Young is obviously the star of that group, he is almost certainly going to the Washington Redskins with the second overall selection.
There is no way Dallas is able to trade up that high.
That said, the Cowboys could definitely go after someone like cornerback Jeffrey Okudah.
The 21-year-old is widely considered the best cornerback in the whole draft, and many anticipate him being taken off the board somewhere in the top 10.
As such, if the Cowboys can finagle a top 10 pick somehow, they could theoretically walk away with him.
With all that in mind, it is worth remembering that the hype surrounding Dallas in the lead-up to the draft rarely delivers.
Don’t forget, there was talk once upon a time of the Cowboys trading up to draft Johnny Manziel. Fortunately for all involved, that did not end up happening.
