With the 82nd pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select …
Davon Hamilton, Defensive Tackle – Ohio St.
Career Stats: 40 games played, 66 total tackles, 20 tackles for loss, 7 sacks, 4 forced fumbles
The Dallas Cowboys defensive line is a group that is very much a question mark going into the 2020 NFL Draft with only Trysten Hill as the notable defensive tackle on the team. The Cowboys do plan on trying to bring back Maliek Collins and Antwaun Woods, but they will still need bodies to rotate in and help stop the run. Sounds like something we keep saying but for some reason the Cowboys never wanted to address it under Jason Garrett.
That has changed under new head coach Mike McCarthy who is looking to bulk up along the interior of his defensive line. An if you’re looking for a big body look no further than Hamilton who comes in at 6’4 and 320lbs at the NFL Combine. During his time at Ohio St. Hamilton’s ability to stop the run and eat up blocks to free up linebackers and pass rushers was on full display.
During his senior year Hamilton added pass rushing to his resume racking up six sacks, showing teams that he is more than just a big body to take on double teams. Seen a day three draft prospect Hamilton would be able to give the Cowboys the size they want on the defensive line but also the possibility of an additional pass rusher.
