Round 4, Pick 138: Camryn Bynum, CB – California

The Dallas Cowboys continue their strategy of picking defensive players with their next pick, cornerback Camryn Bynum.

The 22-year old defensive back played four years for California and finished his collegiate career with the sixth-most pass deflections in Pac-12 history with 26. The young defender managed to accrue 19 total tackles and an interception in four games last year with the Golden Bears.

Even with the Cowboys’ recent re-signing of cornerback Jourdan Lewis to a three-year deal the team still needs more depth at the cornerback position. Earlier in the draft, the team took a swing at trying to find its starting cornerback of the future with Patrick Surtain II. With this selection, Dallas looks to bolster the depth of the position with a solid prospect who could see playing time with the team in his rookie year.

The six-foot, 200-pound cornerback is right around the prototypical size of an NFL player at his position. Throw in the fact that Bynum was able to accrue invaluable experience during his four-years at California playing against solid competition and this pick starts to make a lot of sense.

Dallas is able to add to their secondary with an experienced and battle-tested defensive back who might see some playing time if the teams’ injury luck continues to fail next year. Bynum is not a flashy pick, but a solid one, and unless the organization makes a play in free agency to address this need (please) he also might be a necessary one as well.
