With the NFL draft looming, here are five bombshell scenarios that could shake up the event for the Dallas Cowboys and the rest of the league.
For the Dallas Cowboys, all the focus is now on the 2020 NFL Draft. Predicting what is going to happen in the draft is no easy feat. It’s kind of like the NCAA tournament in that way, as one small miss can bust your entire bracket.
The draft has proven to be unpredictable and anything can happen. For example, do you remember when Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was visibly upset in the green room when he drop to 24th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft? Or when North Carolina State defensive end Mario Williams was selected number one overall by the Houston Texans in 2006 over USC superstar running back Reggie Bush?
What about when the Minnesota Vikings passed with the seventh overall selection in the first round of the 2003 draft which allowed teams to select players before them? All of which were unexpected scenarios that played out before our eyes.
During every draft, there is almost always a bombshell that gets everyone riled up. And while predicting who ends up where is a pure guessing game, I instead offer you five potential bombshell scenarios that could shake up the draft for the Cowboys as well as the rest of the league.
#1 – DT Derrick Brown slides
In this scenario, the Cowboys trade their second-round pick, 51st overall, to move up to just outside the top 10 in the first round in order to select Auburn defensive tackle, Derrick Brown. I believe Brown is the best interior lineman in the draft.
Brown reminds me of the Philadelphia Eagles’ Fletcher Cox and the Kansas City Chiefs’ Chris Jones. Long, thick, and nasty players that can get pressure up the middle while always making the quarterback look for where he is lined up.
This is the type of player that teams build their defense around. Giving up a second-round pick for a prospect most wouldn’t be surprised to see be selected in the top-five certainly seems like a win-win situation for Dallas.
