The Dallas Cowboys went into 2017 with their usual high hopes but finished 9-7 and missed out on the playoffs. The drawn out suspension of Zek Elliott was a major distraction and Jerry Jones of course didn’t make things better. Full disclosure I hate the Cowboys- and I hope Jerry Jones lives forever and never sells because as long as he is the owner and meddling into the situation they will never get back to another Super Bowl.
Last week the Cowboys released disgruntled receiver Desmond Bryant. It seems like his entire career has been one distraction after another, which Jerry Jones probably liked because it drew attention to his underachieving team. Replacing Dez is a major need along with DT, LB, OG and Tight End- Jason Witten can’t play forever can he?
With the 19th pick in the first round the Dallas Cowboys select WR Courtland Sutton SMU 6’4″ 218 4.54 in the 40. Sutton is a solid receiver, not a true burner but has good speed and is a red zone target- He needs to be more physical with cornerbacks in the NFL but he has great size- he is even a couple inches taller than Dez. It would surprise me if Dallas doesn’t go receiver in round 1. They need more offensive weapons than Elliott to take pressure off of QB Dak Prescott who must prove his rookie season success wasn’t a fluke.
