Have the Dallas Cowboys reached their first three draft picks?

Avoiding the 2022 NFL Draft’s tendency to be a team to participate in trade picks, the Dallas Cowboys concluded the first two days of the draft with three picks, in three rounds.

With those first three picks, the Cowboys covered NFL.com’s projected need for the roster; offensive line, defensive line and wide receiver.

The 1st round pick of Tulsa offensive tackle Tyler Smith (pictured above) has proven to be a controversial pick already. Why? Mainly because of his performance in college and his lack of discipline which led to numerous penalties.

So, as the Cowboy enters the 2022 season, a legitimate question will be “Will Smith make it?”

Meanwhile, for day two of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Cowboys made two more picks that ticked off their list of needs.

In the 2nd round, the Cowboys selected DE/OLB Sam Williams from Ole Miss. As a super-senior in 2021, Williams moved from OLB to DE for the Rebels.

He played 13 games, amassed 57 tackles, including 15 TFL. But more importantly, he recorded 12.5 sacks. Williams should be able to make a positive impact on the Cowboys’ pass rush.

For their 3rd round pick, the Cowboys went back on offense selecting a wide receiver. However, the chosen player came from a lower level FBS school. The pick was Jalen Tolbert of southern Alabama, who plays in the Sun Belt Conference.

Tolbert played four seasons for the Jaguars. In his last two, Tolbert has recorded more than 1,000 receiving yards in both seasons. In 2021, Tolbert caught 82 passes for 1,474 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Saturday, for the last day of the draft, the Cowboys will have six choices between rounds 4 to 6.
