The Dallas Cowboys had a phenomenal 2016 NFL Draft, says the media. The media says the Cowboys haven’t had this many good picks since the 1990s, which helped them build a Super Bowl dynasty. The picks they’ve taken this year kind of makes the team looks like the old Cowboys who were three-time Super Bowl champions in the 90s.
A lot of football analysts believe that with a healthy Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, and the new addition in the backfield, first round pick Ezekiel Elliott, will be like the triplets back in the day, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith who went on to win three Super Bowls.
The team also has a new addition at quarterback after drafting Dak Prescott to back up Tony Romo. Prescott will be like another Colin Kaepernick but won’t have just one good season; he will only get better. The Cowboys also made some moves on the defensive side with selecting Jaylon Smith, linebacker from Norte Dame, who was projected to be a first round top ten pick until he got hurt in Notre Dame’s final game against Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl when he suffered a bad knee injury.
Dallas also selected defensive tackle Maliek Collins from Nebraska as well as an addition to the secondary, Anthony Brown, cornerback from Purdue who seems to be a nice fit to the Dallas secondary. They also drafted another running back from Eastern Michigan, Darius Jackson, late in the 6th round.
