Round 6, Pick 193: G Chris Paul
The first of their final two picks will be used to fill in a bit more depth on the offensive line. The pick here is Chris Paul from Tulsa.
Paul enjoyed a four-year career in Tulsa where he started all four years. He played mostly right tackle but his build projects to a move to the guard position. He had a very good junior season before underwhelming a bit his senior season.
The Tulsa product finds most of his success through good balance, length, and very good hand usage. He struggles to move laterally which can justify his move to guard. This could be a good developmental pick for the line.
Other notable prospects available: QB Bailey Zappe, T Obinna Eze, RB Pierre Strong Jr.
Round 6, Pick 216: QB Brock Purdy
The current quarterback situation for the Cowboys is pretty much resolved with Dak Prescott as the starter and Cooper Rush as QB2. Behind them are Will Grier and Ben DiNucci, who are both a bit more underwhelming.
While having a good QB3 isn’t totally necessary, we thought the same thing in Prescott’s rookie year. This is more of a “you never know” pick, however, that is no shade thrown to Iowa State QB Brock Purdy.
He had a very solid season, throwing for 3,200 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. He also does a fair amount of damage on the ground as well, rushing for 350 yards and a touchdown. He did struggle with holding on to the football, fumbling eight times over the course of the season.
