The Dallas Cowboys selected Jalen Tolbert from South Alabama as their 88th overall pick in the third round . Tolbert, who was unranked when he graduated high school, was the Sun Belt Conference’s offensive play of the year.
The Cowboys need help at the offensive tackle and guard spots. They lost Connor Williams via free agency to the Dolphins. Collins was the starting right tackle last season. After being the starter since 2015, La’el Collins was released to become the starting right tackle.
In a trade with the Cleveland Browns, Amari cooper was traded to them. This has created a playmaking gap wide along with budding star Ceedee lamb. It is a huge task to ask a young receiver for the responsibility of carrying the entire receivers room. McCarthy and Company will be looking for more than one fast, sure-handed receiver/ tight end over the course of the NFL Draft.
Head coach Mike McCarthy is now faced with the challenge of finding new players for his offensive and defensive lines after Randy Gregory left.
Dallas devoted 2021 to its defense unit and selected Micah Parsons as the first round draft pick. Parsons won the NFL Defensive Rookie Of The Year award in 2022, made the Pro Bowl, and was the leader of the team’s tackles for loss (20), sacks (13) and quarterback hits (30).
This selection will mark the third time the Cowboys will remain on the clock for the entire weekend. This selection closes Cowboys’ Friday draft slate. Dallas will receive six picks in the final three rounds of the draft, with four additional selections in the fifth.
