With the 2023 NFL Draft practically here, it's getting even more interesting to try and guess what the Dallas Cowboys will do. Their front office deserves a lot of credit for filling plenty of holes in the offseason while also making sure some of their key in-house free agents returned.

Now, they turn their attention to the incoming class of rookies and while the top-round talent gets all the attention, there are some low-key options that could wind up being producers at the next level. Here, we look at six such prospects that Dallas could turn to after Round 1.

Cowboys low-key option No. 6: Cameron Latu, TE, Alabama

With Dalton Schultz out, the Cowboys are surely looking at several tight ends in this class. Names that have been linked to them include Darnell Washington from Georgia and Dalton Kincaid from Utah. Both are exciting prospects but would also likely be taken in Round 1.

Should they elect to wait, there will be other options including Cameron Latu from Alabama. A 6-foot-4, 242-pounder, Latu averaged 14.1 yards per receptions during his career with the Tide.

In nearly any other class, he would be getting a good amount of attention as a pass-catching tight end but since this group is so loaded, he's flying completely under the radar which could work in the Cowboys' favor. Rather than having to use a day one pick, they can wait and add Latu in the middle rounds — then use him in a committee with Jake Ferguson and Peyton Hendershot.
