The Dallas Cowboys have all but finished their 30 pre-draft player visits. Now two names are gaining steam as their potential targets in the second round.
This time last year the Dallas Cowboys were still trying to play thing close to the vest in terms of who they were targeting in the 2018 NFL Draft. Ultimately they weren’t able to and Cowboy fans started to hear the name Leighton Vander Esch being floated as their target in the first round and we know how that turned out.
This year you are started to hear speculation about two potential targets. The first player and the one gaining more steam is NCAA career sack leader, defensive end Jaylon Ferguson out of Louisiana Tech. His draft stock took a hit during his pro day where he ran a 4.82-4.83 forty and had an 8.08 three-cone drill. Both horrible numbers for a defensive end hoping to be taken high in the draft. That could drop him right into the Cowboys’ lap at pick No. 58.
The next player gaining steam is Washington safety, Taylor Rapp. His ability to play both strong and free safety makes him a very intriguing prospect for the Cowboys who missed out on Earl Thomas in free agency. While his pro day like Ferguson was disappointing for some teams due to his slow 4.74-4.77 forty time. Rapp’s ability to cover, tackle, rush the passer and high football IQ still make him a top target for the Cowboys.
The Cowboys have plenty of time to narrow down their choice before the draft. It also depends on how 31 other teams view these players as it is the season for miss information. Hopefully, one of these talented players fall to the Cowboys pick at 58. If so, Cowboy fans should be more than happy with the team taking either one of these players.
What do you think of these to prospects and their chances of falling to the Dallas Cowboys at 58? Tell us in the comment section below.
