It’s Day three of the 2020 NFL Draft. This is the day during the selection process that makes or breaks your team. According to ESPN, 65 percent of your picks make an NFL Roster. One of those players that know that quarterback Dak Prescott. He was drafted in the sixth round in 2016.
On Days one and two, the Cowboys selected CeeDee Lamb with the 17th pick cornerback Trevon Diggs with pick 51, and defensive tackle Neville Gallimore with the 82nd pick.
For the Cowboys, they have been outstanding about picking players for the positions they need. So far, cornerback, defensive end, and wide receiver have been taken off the board. Now, they are looking for lineman and safety.
Pick No. 123: Reggie Robinson II, Cornerback
Looking at their position needs, the Cowboys need to address their cornerback needs even though they drafted Trevon Diggs. At pick 123, the Dallas Cowboys chose Reggie Robinson III out of Tulsa. In only one season in Tulsa, he had a total of 26 solo tackles and three interceptions. Not sure if he is a starter for the Cowboys down the road, but at the moment, he will be a good backup cornerback.
Pick No. 164: Tyler Biadasz, Center
The Cowboys must have felt pick 164 was the right time to select a center. They chose Tyler Biadasz from the Big Ten’s Wisconsin Badgers. Biadasz is good friends with former Cowboys Center Travis Frederick, who retired from the NFL last month. Both players went to the same school, but at different points in their football journeys. Having Tyler join the squad feels like nothing has changed.
Pick No. 179: Bradlee Anae, Defensive End
Seven-year veteran defensive end Kerry Hyder who only spent the only season with the Cowboys and now is with the San Francisco 49ers on a two-year deal due to free agency. Now with an open spot, Dallas is looking to fill it at pick 179. Originally this was supposed to be the Eagles pick, and Dallas was going to have pick 309. Then the two swapped. So, with this selection, they drafted Bradlee Anae from Utah. With 83 solo tackles and 29.5 sacks in four seasons at Utah, look for Anae to start several games for the Cowboys in 2020 and beyond.
Pick No. 231: Ben DiNucci, Quarterback
For two seasons, quarterback Ben DiNucci leads James Madison University to the FCS Playoffs. In 2018, his team lost in the second round while in 2019, James Madison played in the FCS National Championship, where they lost to North Dakota State. With Dallas drafting a quarterback, it looks like it’s going to be a battle to back up Dak Prescott. Who will it be? Cooper Rush, who is currently on the roster, or will it be the rookie who was drafted at number 231 Ben Dinucci?
