The Dallas Cowboys could attempt to draft Amari Cooper’s replacement in the first round.
Since the Dallas Cowboys usually tip when it comes to who they pick from their list of top 30 contenders in the NFL draft, there’s a good chance they’ll replace 24th-ranked Amari Cooper with a top-notch wide receiver .
Dallas rarely deviates from their list of top 30 visitors when it comes to first-round picks. The final three first-round picks not included in the top 30 attendees selected by the Cowboys were CeeDee Lamb (2020), Morris Claiborne (2012) and DeMarcus Ware (2005). Micah Parsons has done Zoom interviews with the Cowboys and would have been a Top 30 attendee had they been present last draft season.
Of the nine players with a potential first-round grade who have visited the Cowboys, three are wide receivers: USC’s Drake London, Arkansas’ Treylon Burks and Ohio State’s Chris Olave.
Other first round players include Charles Cross on Mississippi State offensive tackle, Bernhard Raimann on Central Michigan offensive tackle, Boston College’s Zion Johnson, Texas A&M’s Kenyon Green, Texas A&M offensive lineman, Jordan Davis on defense -Tackle by Georgia and Devin Lloyd of Utah.
Will the Cowboys go 24th with a wide receiver or an offensive lineman?
Dallas Cowboys draft rumors: Could they replace Amari Cooper with No. 24?
While it would make sense for the Cowboys to target a wide receiver in 24th place, there’s almost no chance London will be available then. Olave will also likely be off the board by this point. As for Burks, he could fall for them at number 24. On the other hand, he might be worth trading for because he’s a pig like all Joneses. Jerry Jones may not be able to fully contain himself.
As cool as it would be to see NFL Shaq play for America’s team, Davis is likely to come off the board before 24th place. Lloyd would be phenomenal paired alongside Parsons, but it’s highly unlikely that the Cowboys will linebacker consecutive drafts with picks in the first round. For that reason, if the Cowboys can’t get a wide receiver, going with an offensive lineman is probably the most likely outcome.
As there are sure to be many other talented wide receivers on Day 2, Dallas may prefer to go in that direction. On the other hand, winning three first-round wide receivers as one-tenth of a team’s allotted top 30 draft visits certainly speaks volumes. Ultimately, the Cowboys will go with an offensive lineman if they can’t pick the wide receiver in 24th overall.
Cooper’s replacement will be in this NFL draft, but he may not be the first-round variety.
