#2 – QB Tua Tagovailoa gets to 17

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been touted as a top-five selection in this year’s draft but what happens if he gets to No. 17 where the Dallas Cowboys pick in the first round?

Venturing more into the unknown, what happens if Dallas selects him? Complete and utter chaos is the only words that come to mind. This one could hypothetically break the internet and split the fanbase on who should be the face of the franchise.

Nonetheless, if this scenario does happen and they do decide to take Tua, I would imagine it would force Cowboys’ current quarterback, Dak Prescott, and his camp to make a move of some kind. Would they hold out or would Dak rush to a deal to stay with his childhood team?

#3 – Dallas trades back for a center

In this scenario, Dallas once again trades back in the first and selects a center from Wisconsin with their late first-round pick while picking up another third-round pick.

Wisconsin center Tyler Biadasz grades out as my top run-blocking center in this draft. Here’s what Pro Football Focus thinks. I will note that I do not have a first-round grade on any center in this draft but I did not either when the Cowboys selected center Travis Frederick back in 2013.

A replacement for Frederick could be in the cards for Dallas depending on what they think they have on their roster already. This is certainly not a sexy pick but one that could pay dividends down the road.
