Fifth Round

The Cowboys have two picks in the fifth round: their regularly scheduled pick and a compensatory pick gained after losing Cole Beasley to the Buffalo Bills last winter.

Safety. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 123. Clemson. Tanner Muse. 164

The Cowboys have starters at safety right now in HaHa Clinton-Dix and Xavier Woods, but both players will be free agents after the season. Muse turned heads at the combine with the second-fastest 40 time in the safety group and has good instincts at the position. The plan should be to develop Muse into a potential starter in 2021.

Nate Stanley. player. 123. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Quarterback. Iowa. 179

Jerry Jones let it slip that the Cowboys are looking at quarterbacks in the draft when he shared that the team was doing a Zoom interview with Jalen Hurts. Dallas waits till the end of the fifth round to grab Stanley, a pocket passer with a gifted arm that needs to work on his accuracy and decision-making skills. Stanley would sit behind Prescott and hopefully develop into his long term backup.

Sixth Round

The Cowboys don’t have a sixth-round pick after dealing to Miami last season in the Robert Quinn trade.

Seventh Round

Tyler Higby. 123. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Guard. Michigan State. 231

The last pick the Cowboys make is Tyler Higby, a guard from Michigan State. Higby is a developmental project along the interior line, which Dallas can afford to do since Connor McGovern figures to enter the starting lineup this season.
