The Dallas Cowboys gave away their first-round draft pick this year to acquire Detroit Lions wide receiver Roy Williams, so the first pick the Cowboys have is No. 51?
So, who should it be? Fantasy Football Jungle analyzed the scenarios for the Cowboys in an easy to understand format, offering all sorts of options. You can check it out here.
All indications are the Cowboys will draft a safety with that first pick.
One possibility is Emmanuel Cook, South Carolina. He’s the fifth ranked safety in the draft, about 5’10” tall and 210 pounds. His 40-time is a decent 4.47. His high points are that he is one of the hardest hitting safeties in college football. But he’s not a great tackler.
Louis Delmas, of Western Michigan, had a great showing this season. He pummeled people a few times. He has good instincts and is known as a natural playmaker.
Rashad Johnson, of Alabama, has a fast 4.4 40 time. The kid was a walk-on for Alabama and then earned a scholarship before making All-American honors. Some say Johnson may be the top safety picked, but he could fall to the Cowboys. I think Missouri’s William Moore and Oregon’s Patrick Chung will end up being drafted before Johnson, giving the Cowboys a solid opportunity to grab him.
