Round 7, Pick 233: DT Jordan Jefferson

Jordan Jefferson is a player who is tragically low on many media draft boards but might be higher on team draft boards. The 6-foot-3 313-pound DT from LSU has been a player on the cusp of breaking out for years but has never been able to do it.

The fifth-year senior has power and speed which can’t be taught. Likely cast as a 1-tech run stuffer in the NFL, Jefferson looks like the next Quinten Bohanna since he’s a Day 3 1-tech with developmental potential. Jefferson made Brice Feldman’s Freak List which puts him on Dallas’ radar and since the Cowboys have a clear and obvious need at DT, he’s an easy pick in the latter stages of this draft.

Round 7, Pick 244 WR Ryan Flournoy

Flournoy out of Southeast Missouri State is a player who’s good at many things but excels as a deep threat in the same way Cedrick Wilson once did and Jalen Tolbert did as prospects. In this loaded WR draft class he’s just the type of player to slip through the cracks and offer some lucky team extreme value late on Day 3.

At 6-foot-1, 202-pounds he’s well built with explosive testing numbers. His 4.44 speed puts him in the top 73rd percentile and backs up his ability to get deep. He doesn’t play very physically and runs a very elementary route tree so seasoning will be required before he can compete for a regular role. But he’s a natural hands catcher who tracks the ball effortlessly, so he comes with strong potential as a developmental player.

Whether it’s Flourney or some other WR prospect, this is a good time for the Cowboys to snag a falling WR prospect with legit upside.
