MAY 1: FINAL PICK In Round 7, with their final pick, No. 238 overall, the Cowboys chose Nebraska OL Matt Farniok, a two-year captain.
MAY 1: BIG CB The Cowboys' Round 6 pick is Israel Mukuamu ... a cornerback who is 6-4. With a 81-inch wingspan. He was the 'other' CB at South Carolina, alongside Jaycee Horn.
Betcha college coach Will Muschamp - besties with Dan Quinn - recommended Mukuamu to Quinn, too.
And by the way: The two tallest corners in this draft class are now Cowboys, at 6-4, "The Next Sherm' Nahshon Wright being the other.
MAY 1: SAM EHLINGER TO COLTS: At one point, former Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger talked about the 'dream' of joining the Dallas Cowboys. Well, that dream ended in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft when the Indianapolis Colts took the Texas native and former Longhorns captain.
MAY 1: JABRIL COX REACTS TO COWBOYS CALL: The Cowboys' newest linebacker, LSU's Jabril Cox, posted his reaction to getting his 'Cowboys Call' on Twitter on Saturday.
MAY 1: GOOD AND BAD ON BALL On the one hand, Josh Ball - the Dallas Cowboys selection, and their first offensive player in the 2021 NFL Draft, with the No. 138 pick in the fourth round - is a "get.'' Our guy Dane Brugler says the 6-7, 310-pound Marshall product is a "top-100'' talent.
He was allegedly involved in a series of domestic violence incidents against a girlfriend that caused him to get suspended at Florida State in 2018. Ball was never charged, but he transferred to Butler Community College in Kansas before finishing at Marshall.
As our Mike Fisher writes: "The Cowboys' in-house faith in their 'Second-Chance Valley Ranch' ability to deal with guys with 'character issues' - justified or not - is unbending.''
MAY 1: SAINTS TAKE IAN BOOK: With the retirement of Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints may have made their first foray into finding a 'quarterback of the future' in taking Notre Dame's Ian Book in the fourth round. Book was also the first quarterback off the board on Day 3 of the NFL Draft.
MAY 1: COWBOYS 'STEAL' COX: A Source tells CowboysSI.com that Dallas had a second-round grade On Jabril Cox - and they just picked the LSU linebacker in Round 4. Read the Cox scouting report here.
MAY 1: EAGLES, WFT MAKE FOURTH-ROUND PICKS: After the Philadelphia Eagles selected Texas Tech cornerback Zeck McPhearson at No. 123 overall, the Washington Football Team took Boise State tight end John Bates with the No. 124 overall pick.
The selections were the first on Saturday for the Cowboys' NFC East rivals. Earlier in the fourth round, the New York Giants took UNI pass rusher Elerson Smith, and the Cowboys took LSU LB Jabril Cox. The Cowboys have another selection in the fourth round at No.
MAY 1: GIANTS TAKE SMITH: The New York Giants selected Northern Iowa defensive end Elerson Smith with the No. 116 pick, right after the Dallas Cowboys took North Dakota State linebacker Jabril Cox at No. 115.
The Giants are looking to improve from a 6-10 season, their first without quarterback Eli Manning, who retired after the 2019 season. On Day 1 the Giants started addressing their offense by selecting Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney. Then, on Day 2 the Giants went defensive by taking Georiga linebacker Azeez Ojulari in the second round and UCF cornerback Aaron Robinson in the third round.
The Giants have two remaining picks in the sixth round.
MAY 1: JAGS START DAY 3: The first selection of the third day of the 2021 NFL Draft was announced from London, England, as the Jacksonville Jaguars took USC defensive tackle Jay Tufele.
The Cowboys have the No. 115 pick in the fourth round.
APRIL 30: COWBOYS TAKE NAHSHON WRIGHT: The Dallas Cowboys wrapped up a productive second day of the NFL Draft by selecting Oregon State defensive back Nahshon Wright at No. 99 overall.
Wright played in 18 games overall for the Beavers, with 16 starts. He had 64 tackles with 1.5 tackles for loss, one sack, five interceptions and 11 pass deflections. He was a 2020 Coaches All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention.
Golston joins a 2021 Cowboys draft class that now features four other defensive players taken on Thursday and Friday — Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons, Kentucky cornerback Kelvin Joseph, UCLA defensive lineman Osa Odighizuwa, and Iowa defensive end Chauncey Golston.
APRIL 30: COWBOYS GRAB GOLSTON: The Dallas Cowboys selected Iowa defensive end Chauncey Golston with the No. 84 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday. Below we provide our instant grade on the selection.
Golston, projected as a 3-4 defensive end by some scouts, was an honorable mention All-America selection, and an All-Big Ten First-Team pick by the Associated Press. Golston started all eight games, recording 24 solo tackles and 21 assists, along with 8.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, one pass break-up and three pressures.
APRIL 30: OSA! Dallas used the first of its trio of third-round picks on UCLA Osa Odighizuwa. It is the No. 75 overall spot. Osa is 6-2, 280 and considered undersized by some.
Our man Jim Mora knows his family and knows Osa ...
Dallas is working toward two more picks in this round.
April 30, 8:46 p.m.: The Houston Texans became the final team to make a selection in the 2021 NFL Draft when they picked Stanford QB Davis Mills, which gives the Texans some insurance given the current situation with starting quarterback Deshaun Watson.
The Cowboys still have three selections in the third round.
April 30, 8:35 p.m.: The world champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers wrapped up a raucous second round of the 2021 NFL Draft by selected their quarterback of the future in Florida signal-caller Kyle Trask, the only quarterback taken in the second round.
The Cowboys are sitting on three draft picks in the third round — No. 75, No. 84 and No. 99.
April 30, 7:31 p.m.: The New York Giants, after trading back in the second round, added to their defensive talent by taking Georgia outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari. Ojulari had a great season for Georgia in 2020, but concerns about an injury history likely kept him out of the first round. But, as a pass-rushing outside linebacker, Ojulari can help the Giants' defense.
Meanwhile, the Washington Football Team took Texas offensive lineman Samuel Cosmi at No. 51, a second-team All-American.
APRIL 30: The Cowboys believed they'd secured pick No. 35 from Atlanta in trade to open Round 2. ... to jump from No. 44. However, it appears the Cowboys backed out ... at which time the Broncos jumped in and executed a similar deal.
'We said going into Round 2 that Dallas would be calling in the range of the Jets at No. 34, and that happened. We suggested the trade target might be TCU safety Trevon Moehrig.
As we write this, with Dallas' at 44 three picks away, Moehrig is among the many attractive players still available.
April 30, 6:40 p.m.: NFC East rival Philadelphia selected Alabama offensive lineman Landon Dickerson with its second-round pick on Friday, further fortifying its offense with former Crimson Tide players.
Dickerson joins his teammates, DeVonta Smith, the Crimson Tide wide receiver who joined the Eagles last night when he was taken No. 10 overall. The Eagles moved up to No. 10 in a trade with the Dallas Cowboys, who received the Eagles No. 12 pick and an additional third-round pick to move back.
Both will help out another former Crimson Tide player, quarterback Jalen Hurts, who is now the starter for the Eagles and finished his career with the Oklahoma Sooners.
April 30, 6:30 p.m.: The Denver Broncos executed the first trade of the second round, moving up to No. 35 in a deal with the Atlanta Falcons.
With the pick, the Broncos selected North Carolina running back Javonte Williams. The Falcons fell back to No. 40 overall. The two teams also swapped late-draft picks.
Does that help the Cowboys? Well, it pushes more defensive players the Cowboys' way at No. 44 overall. Plus, per our Mike Fisher and Bryan Broaddus of 105.3 The Fan, the Cowboys should be exploring ways to move up.
April 30, 3:45 p.m. CST: The Athletic's Dane Brugler put together a Round 2 and Round 3 NFL Mock Draft, based on the results of Round 1, and he had the Cowboys getting Oregon safety Jevon Holland. That would put Holland at No. 46 overall, assuming the Cowboys make no moves.
It would also connect Dallas with a safety that we've already put together. Read below ...
The Cowboys, with three third-round picks, could be on the move tonight. But, if they stand pat, Brugler had the Cowboys taking LA Tech defensive lineman Milton Williams at No. 75, Texas Tech cornerback Zech McPherson at No. 84, and Cincinnati offensive lineman James Hudson at No. 99.
April 29, 9:46 CST: The New York Giants wrapped up the NFC East selections in the first round (barring a trade) by taking Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney at No. 20, after they traded back from No. 11 in a deal with the Chicago Bears. This gives quarterback Daniel Jones another weapon to use in 2021.
One pick earlier, at No. 19, the Washington Football Team selected Kentucky linebacker Jamin Davis, a player that had been connected to WFT for a good portion of the draft process.
Earlier on Thursday, the Cowboys and the Eagles flipped first-round picks, with the Cowboys sliding back to No. 12. The Eagles used the Cowboys’ No. 10 overall pick to select Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith, while the Cowboys took Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons.
April 29, 8:37 p.m. CST: The Dallas Cowboys found a trade partner with their NFC East rival, the Philadelphia Eagles, on Thursday night, as the Cowboys decided to move down two selections to the Eagles' No. 12 overall pick. The Eagles used that No. 10 overall pick to select Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith.
The Cowboys received the Eagles' third-round pick tomorrow night, along with the Eagles' No. 12 selection. That means the Cowboys now have three third-round selections for Friday's session, giving them more ammunition to trade.
The trade makes sense, with Horn and Surtain gone, and with, among others O-lineman Rashawn Slater still on the board and available at 12.
April 29, 8:26 p.m. CST: The Dallas Cowboys missed out on another cornerback Alabama's Patrick Surtain II, when the Denver Broncos took him at No. 9 overall.
Surtain was considered a potential pick to help the Cowboys add talent at the cornerback position. With that selection, two of the Cowboys' cornerback targets went back-to-back and right before their selection at No. 10. South Carolina's Jaycee Horn went at No. 8 to Carolina.
April 29, 8:19 p.m. CST: The Dallas Cowboys lost another potential first-round target when the Carolina Panthers took South Carolina cornerback Jaycee Horn at No. 8 overall on Thursday night.
Horn not only became the first cornerback off the board, he was the first defensive player off the board, as the first seven selection were all on offense.
