Cowboys round 1, pick 32: OC Zach Frazier

Again, the Cowboys take to the phones, this time accepting an offer from Kansas City to swap spots in the first round. Dallas gains the Chiefs third round pick in 2024 and adds their fourth rounder in 2025.

Before trading back, Dallas saw Graham Barton and Jackson Powers-Jackson were both off the board. Frazier seemed rich at that point so the trade back to 32 allowed them to get better value while adding extra selections along the way.  

The need at OC is obvious. Tyler Biadasz left in free agency and Brock Hoffman doesn’t appear to have starter quality traits. Finding a plug and play starter is high priority for Dallas and Frazier is just that.

Frazier profiles as one of the top OCs in the draft. The 6-foot-2, 315-pound product of West Virginia is a former wrestler with elite balance and stability. With 38 games of starting experience at the center position, he comes more polished than the two OC prospects that went before him.

Experienced in both zone and gap running schemes he would be a clean fit on the Cowboys. A hard worker with a high-end IQ and tremendously high floor makes him an instant starter. The only downside with Frazier is his ceiling isn’t as high as Barton or Powers-Johnson.
