Top pick: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
There was no way the Dallas Cowboys could pass on CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick after he was projected to go in the top 10-12 by many.
Lamb’s after-the-catch ability is his most outstanding trait, and he may be one of the most productive players in that regard that I have scouted in recent years.
Even with as much money as Amari Cooper just made, it wouldn’t be surprising if Lamb is the Cowboys’ number one receiver before too long.
Steal: EDGE Bradlee Anae, Utah – 5th round
Bradlee Anae was consistently productive for the Utah defense over the past three seasons and put together some of the most dominant reps on tape at the 2020 Senior Bowl.
Anae didn’t test overly well athletically, but he can undoubtedly factor into Dallas’ rotation sooner rather than later off the edge. He doesn’t have the quickest get-off but he can rush the passer and he hits with a ton of force.
Overall Grade: A
The Cowboys got good value at every selection in this entire draft.
Looking up and down the list, their best value could be argued as any one of these picks.
Trevon Diggs will be counted on to start as a rookie in all likelihood. He is a converted wide receiver whose struggles with consistency are likely the reason he dropped to the second round, but he was predicted to be a first-round pick in a lot of mock drafts.
Neville Gallimore replaces Maliek Collins as the small, quick, powerful interior pass rusher on the Cowboys’ defensive line.
Reggie Robinson was not a highly touted prospect with just one season at Tulsa, but he had a very nice 2019 campaign with three interceptions and 13 pass breakups.
Tyler Biadasz should be an instant starter at center if the Cowboys need him to be after the retirement of Travis Frederick.
