A Dallas Cowboys “dream scenario” big board for the 2022 NFL Draft
The Dallas Cowboys are now less than two weeks away from the 2022 NFL Draft. As of now, the team has glaring needs at the guard, wide receiver, and linebacker positions. Over the years, the Joneses have been known for taking the best player available (BPA) in the first rounds instead of taking people they need. This year might be different.
Everyone seems to be set on the idea that guard prospects Kenyon Green or Zion Johnson will be the pick at 24. However, this would be going against the BPA approach the Cowboys like to take. In this article, I will create a big board that will list two players in each round that could be available that would be too good to pass up. They would be dream players for Dallas.
For those who don’t know, a team’s big board is a list of players ranked highest to lowest in terms of who they want to pick. These boards are based on need, talent, potential, personality, fit, etc. For instance, the Cowboys have a need at guard, so Green or Johnson are most likely higher on their big board than teams that don’t need a guard as much.
I ranked 12 prospects on my dream Cowboys big board and scored them out of 50 based on need, draft projection, talent, fit, and potential. Let’s get started!
