Dallas takes UT offensive tackle Connor Williams with second pick

The Cowboys missed the playoffs after a stellar season the year before that ended with a soul-crushing loss to the Green Bay Packers. They did add a possible replacement for Dez Bryant in Colorado State receiver Michael Gallup. This is a stacked offense with countless ways to attack opposing defenses. And if you're a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, you have something else to watch besides the draft this weekend. Gallup is worth a look with a late-round pick in re-draft leagues, and he's a third-round pick in rookie-only leagues for dynasty formats.

The Dallas Cowboys selected Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch with the 19th pick in the NFL Draft at AT&T Stadium. Michael Gallup is here, and I expect him to be a major contributor all over the field.

Wide receiver Cedrick Wilson is the second Boise State player selected by the Cowboys in this year's draft.

The Cowboys took the easy way out Thursday night. All or Nothing: The Dallas Cowboys is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

A traits guy, Covington has the raw athleticism to excel on the next level.




This is where Scott Linehan again enters the picture.

Vander Esch comes from the small Idaho town of Riggins, with a population of only a few hundred.

"I see Connor Williams as more likely to move inside to guard, so that means [La'el] Collins should stick at tackle". He will push for a starting job right away. Fourth-round cornerback Avonte Maddox fills a big defensive need as a slot corner.

The Cowboys have been a prime example of how the National Football League changes from year to year though. A big weakness that National Football League scouts see in him is his inability to be a receiver out of the backfield, something teams value highly.

Whether or not the Cowboys drive back towards the playoffs will be powered by their machine-like offense is up to the man with the keys - play caller Scott Linehan. With the last major offseason activity concluded, all eyes can focus on training camp and the start of the 2018 regular season, as the long march through summer begins.
