Cowboys Use 11 Draft Picks in 2023 NFL draft

Cowboys have already gotten at least 4 starters out of the 2023 NFL Draft. If you give the Eagles credit for trading their 1st round pick to the Titans for A.J. Brown, then you MUST also give the Cowboys credit for trading 3 low round picks for starters in Hankins, Cooks and Gilmore. Whether Schoonmaker or Ferguson becomes TE1, the truth is that TE1 and TE2 play a lot of snaps. Schoonmaker is a better prospect than Dalton Schultz was when drafted. Overshown will likely become a nickel Linebacker/Safety for the Cowboys in the mold of Jevon Kearse. The Cowboys new Dline Coach Shariff Floyd was on the radio, and indicated that Fehoko will be asked to bulk up, and play in the rotation as a 3-tech DT with Odighizuwa.

This may not seem like a sexy draft, but the Cowboys are using their draft capital to build a team for now and the future.
