Overall, the Dallas Cowboys should be satisfied with the 2023 NFL Draft, even if they didn't load up on flashy players. To their credit, they seemed to stick to their board, avoided any panic moves, and apparently had a great smokescreen that caused the Bills to leapfrog them for a player they weren't even interested in.

In the end, it was a weekend that saw the Cowboys add more than one potential starter and they got great value along the way, but they also made a couple of picks they could end up regretting.

Cowboys pick they got right: DeMarvion Overshown, LB, Texas

In the third round of the draft, Dallas selected Texas linebacker DeMarvion Overshown who had 96 tackles and four sacks in 2022. He's listed at 6-foot-3 and 229 pounds and posted an impressive 4.56 time in the 40-yard dash during the Combine.

That time shouldn't surprise anyone given his past as a safety. His experience in coverage is only one reason he's going to be a good fit in Dallas, with his versatility being No. 1.

During his tenure with the Longhorns, Overshown played both inside and outside linebacker positions and handled each with ease. The Cowboys enter the season with three starters in place with Micah Parsons, Leighton Vander Esch, and Damone Clark on the roster.

Overshown has the talent to play any of the three spots, which makes him an incredibly valuable reserve on Sundays when active spots are limited. He's also a fearless tackler that might be able to help ease the loss of Luke Gifford, who was an underrated player in his own right.
