Round 6, pick 191, Sadarius Hutcherson, OL- South Carolina

The Dallas Cowboys offensive lined cracked in 2020. The unit, usually a source of strength, was riddled with injuries and inconsistent play and ended up giving up 43 sacks last year. The Cowboys once again attempt to address this growing concern by selecting offensive lineman Sadarius Hutcherson in the sixth round.

Hutcherson was a four-year starter for the Gamecocks during his collegiate career. During his time there he demonstrated an impressive level of versatility by playing as a left guard, right guard, and left tackle. The young lineman also demonstrated his durability by starting in 39 games during his time in South Carolina.

The six-foot-four, 320-pound offensive lineman has shown above-average athleticism for a player his size and gained invaluable experience while playing in the hyper-competitive SEC. The young prospect was also named to the Second-Team All-SEC last year by PFF.

This move could add even more competition for the role of starting left guard for America’s Team and, at worst, would at least add much-needed depth to the unit.

The Dallas Cowboys try to address a growing need with this selection and get a player who could potentially develop into a starter for the team sometime down the road.
