Cowboys Get Elite 2018 Draft Grade From PFF

The 2018 NFL Draft is in the books. Pro Football Focus called the Cowboys finished draft ‘elite’ in terms of grades. Here’s who the Cowboys went with:

1 (19) Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State, 89.8
2 (50) Connor Williams, T/G, Texas, 85.7
3 (81) Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado State, 92.1
4 (116) Dorance Armstrong Jr., Edge, Kansas, 78.5
4 (137) Dalton Schultz, TE, Stanford, 82.1
5 (171) Mike White, QB, WKU, 84.2
6 (193) Chris Covington, LB, Indiana, 85.5
6 (208) Cedrick Wilson, WR, Boise State, 89.2
7 (236) Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama, 75.6

I’m a little disappointed with the Cowboys; but I am interested to see what these guys do in pads. I especially like the Scarbrough pick late, so he probably doesn’t end up with much of a career based on me liking guys I’ve seen on Saturdays with some name-recognition.

I am regretful that the Cowboys didn’t grab a WR or TE early enough. I don’t think Gallup or Schultz are the answers. Then again, Jason Witten was a really good example of why you can’t just discount a player taken in the middle rounds.

I just think this draft leaves a built-in excuse for the Cowboys struggling in the passing game once again.

The Dallas draft is in the books, literally. The city did a great job of hosting by all reports. The fans were electric when I watched on Thursday night.
