Round 6: Kearis Jackson, WR, Georgia
Kearis Jackson started to come on strong as a redshirt sophomore in 2020 when he had 36 receptions for 514 yards and three touchdowns. Unfortunately, a knee injury set him back in 2021, and he had just 16 receptions for 194 yards on the year.
He has one final season of eligibility, and if Jackson shows anything similar to the form we saw in 2020, it could be worth taking a flyer on him. For Dallas, it makes sense to keep the bottom of the roster strong at wideout, since they have a lot of unknowns right now beyond CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, and rookie Jalen Tolbert.
They have been able to turn late-round picks into contributors in the past — Cedrick Wilson and Patrick Crayton come to mind — and should try to do so again with Jackson.
Round 7: Isheem Young, S, Ole Miss
Dallas has more depth at safety right now than we have seen in years, but none are under contract for long. Donovan Wilson will be a free agent in 2023, and both Malik Hooker and Jayron Kearse have deals that expire ahead of the 2024 offseason.
That’s why they add Isheem Young with their final pick in this draft. Young recorded 109 tackles and three picks in two seasons for Iowa State and now heads to Ole Miss. Should he decide to go pro, he could be a Day 3 pick who has some upside.
