Clark Phillips III NFL Draft photo
Through the first several weeks of the season, two things are clear about the Dallas Cowboys. This defense is one of the most talented units in the league and the offense is not. Because of that, I'm strongly leaning toward offensive prospects with this pick, but that doesn't mean I'm writing off defenders completely. While the Cowboys did reach to fill a need last year with Tyler Smith, that typically isn't what we see from America's Team early in the draft.

Will McClay and Stephen Jones usually lean towards value over need, and that's why I could see them going with someone like Phillips. The Cowboys have a young group of corners, but right now that bunch has more potential than production. If guys like Kelvin Joseph, Nashon Wright and DaRon Bland don't show the kind of progress that inspires confidence in their ability to latch on to a starting role in the near-future, I could see them looking for a top-end talent to pair with Trevon Diggs.

COWBOYS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
