With the 180th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select …
Chauncey Rivers, DE – Mississippi State
With the potential for Robert Quinn to leave in free agency after an 11.5 sack season, the Cowboys need more help rushing the passer.
Rivers would give the Cowboys just that, a player that can rush the passer from the defensive end position and defensive tackle position.
Rivers 6-foot-2, 275-pound frame are also strong enough to set the edge in the running game. He and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence would be a nice one-two punch once Rivers can hone his craft.
Career Stats: 67 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks.
With the 233rd pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select …
Thomas Graham Jr., CB – Oregon
Coming in at just under 6-0, Graham Jr. is a player the Cowboys could use in the slot or on the outside. Although he most likely will head to the practice squad in his first season.
His ability to diagnose a play and attacking the ball in the air two of his best traits. Those traits may just help him in the long run with the Cowboys.
Career Stats: 183 total tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 8 interceptions, and 32 passed defended.
We all know that the NFL draft boards will change more than a few times before we get to the draft so don’t get too caught up in these players. Mine will change as well and we will get a better sense of what the Cowboys are looking for once visits and workouts being. So stay tuned.
