The Dallas Cowboys hold the 51st overall pick in second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Who will land in Big D? Will the team go defense or offense? Let’s talk …

We are closing out the month of February, with March just days away. Daylight savings time is set for March 8. Yet, the Dallas Cowboys are still waiting for the dominoes to fall.

Quarterback Dak Prescott has a franchise tag target on his back. The status of Jason Witten is yet to be determined, along with how the tight ends room may look. Cornerback Byron Jones and star wide receiver Amari Cooper don’t have new contracts in place.

Those are some big names in the Dallas Cowboys universe. Last week, I offered three potential first-round picks. I posited safety, defensive tackle and also tight end.

The second round of the 2020 NFL Draft offers some nice gems for the Cowboys. In fact, I can’t see the ‘Boys passing on safety in either of their first two overall picks. The second round offers depth on the defensive front line as well as the backfield.

For the Cowboys, it’d be smart to stay put, not trade up, and select with the 51st pick. If America’s Team drops out of the 51st slot in favor of more picks, so be it. But trading up may lure in trouble.

So, do the Dallas Cowboys land a trophy safety in the second round? Fans have been clamoring for a top-flight safety, someone like Darren Woodson, who was also a second-round pick (37th overall). Woodson would go on to play his entire career in Big D from 1992 to 2003.

With that said, let’s take a look at three potential second-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft. The NFL Draft is in Las Vegas, NV this year, starting on April 23.
