Round 6, Pick 225: Tre Norwood, S – Oklahoma

The Dallas Cowboys have yet to address their need in the secondary thus far in free agency (at the time of this writing). The team has also not yet decided whether or not to bring back their starting safety Xavier Woods who is currently a free agent.

The organization decides to replace Woods with a cheaper option moving forward and selects safety Tre Norwood from Oklahoma. The team already selected safety Richie Grant in the second-round so this pick is mainly to shore up depth at a position of weakness for Dallas.

Standing in at six-feet tall the defensive back accrued an impressive five interceptions last season for the Sooners which led the Big 12. The young defender had 14 pass deflections and 111 total tackles during his collegiate career as well.

The case for drafting Norwood here is a relatively simple one. The team needs depth at this position and the defense needs a playmaker. The Oklahoma product would provide the team with that depth and showed his potential abilities as a playmaker last season.

At this point in the draft, the Dallas Cowboys are simply trying to add depth and maybe secretly hoping that Tre Norwood can turn into the playmaker the team desperately needs.
