An exact best-case scenario for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2022 NFL Draft
Pick 24: G Kenyon Green
Immediate starter at the left guard position with all-pro potential.
Would win the WR3 spot and provide a deep-threat big-body receiving threat, trade up if necessary.
Pick 88: DE Sam Williams
Could come in and compete for the starting defensive end opposite of DeMarcus Lawrence. Provides a Parsons-like skillset.
Pick 129: LB Damone Clark
Will miss the 2022-23 season due to injury, but expected to fully recover and can pair with former LSU teammate Jabril Cox for the future.
Pick 155: DT Haskell Garrett
Provides great pass-rushing ability and can come in on crucial passing downs.
Pick 167: CB Derion Kendrick
High ceiling prospect with skillset similar to Kelvin Joseph. Provides competition at the CB position.
Pick 176: OT Max Mitchell
Developmental future replacement for Tyron Smith or could even compete for the starting RT position.
Pick 178: LB Micah McFadden
Special teams player and developmental interior linebacker prospect.
Pick 193: S Verone McKinley III
Ball-hawk that can compete for playing time early on at the free safety position.
This scenario for America’s Team provides not only three or four potential starters, but also adds an additional three or four guys who can compete for quality snaps starting next season. The draft is just a week away, and if this were to happen, the front office could make up for their miscues so far this offseason.
