The Cowboys currently hold nine picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. They get things underway in the first round with the 24th selection. It is of note that they hold four picks in the fifth round.

Key prospect names to look out for in the first round
There are infinite ways the first round could play out given there are 23 picks before the Cowboys. Dallas could trade up, trade back, or a player could fall to them that they never expected. Below are a few names to keep an eye on that make sense for the Cowboys based on need and interest. This list is littered with offensive lineman as the Cowboys could bolster the trenches.
- Zion Johnson, OL, Boston College
- Kenyon Green, OL, Texas A&M
- Tyler Linderbaum, OL, Iowa
- Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State
- Trevor Penning, OL, Northern Iowa
