Option #2: Aaron Donald, DT

Here is the second best option for the Cowboys, which might not be most likely of picks. Donald, who played for Pittsburgh, has been shooting up the draft boards since his impressive showing at the NFL combine. This might not be as much of a need since the Cowboys signed Melton in the off-season, but getting him would be just another asset to a rebuilding defense. Donald has an impressive combo of size and speed, which in the 4-3 is necessary for the defensive lineman. He plays the three-technique position that is now occupied by Melton, but he can play the one-technique if he needs too. Donald would be a good option because he would be a good replacement for Melton if things don’t work out. He would help solidify the defensive line for years to come.
