Cowboys beef up defense and add talented Memphis running back

No. 87: Cedric Gray, LB, North Carolina

With Leighton Vander Esch not being able to stay healthy, this is where Cedric Gray enters for the Cowboys as he was one of the top Linebacker in college football last year and recorded 121 total tackles, with 64 of them being solo, five sacks, two forced fumbles, and an interception.

No. 172: Justin Eboigbe, DL, Alabama

Since the Cowboys don't have a 4th round pick, they will be picking in the 5th round instead, and I see them taking the 6'5 294 pounder from Alabama, Justin Eboigbe, this young talent after having a season-ending neck injury returned to the Roll Tide, in 2023 where he recorded 63 total tackles, with 29 of them being solo, and 7 sacks.

No. 212: Blake Watson, RB, Memphis

With Tony Pollard being a free agent, I believe Dallas should take a Running Back in the 6th round, as the Cowboys had struggled running the ball all year, and drafting Watson, will do them wonders as in 5 years with the Old Dominion Monarchs and the Memphis Tigers, Watson put up magnificent numbers rushing for 2,601 yards, 20 touchdowns, and receiving 681 passing yards with 4 touchdowns.
