With the Dallas Cowboys selecting early in the first round, here is how the Boys can get the fourth pick right and wrong.
There are 23 days left before the 2016 NFL Draft begins. With the Cowboys selecting at the fourth spot this year, the selection is the highest position Dallas has held in a draft since grabbing defensive tackle Russell Maryland in 1991 with the first overall pick.
Two years before Maryland, the Boys nabbed quarterback star Troy Aikman, also with the first overall pick.
Since 1989, the Dallas Cowboys have selected within the first 10 picks only seven times. One of those players is in the Hall of Fame (Mr. Aikman) and six out those seven have gone on to establish themselves as Pro Bowlers. (Morris Claiborne is the lone star without a Pro Bowl nod.)
What does this all mean?
It means this that this year’s fourth pick is the single most important draft selection in over 25 years.
So, with the Cowboys on the clock early, waiting for three teams before they take a turn, the question becomes: can Dallas get the name on the card wrong?
I mean, quarterback Johnny Manziel‘s name can’t show up again, so there is that.
With all the mocks and expert analysis circulating the football world, let’s discuss how the Cowboys can get the fourth pick right and wrong on April 28th.
On your marks. Get set. Let’s draft!
