The Dallas Cowboys made DeMarcus Lawrence the highest-paid player in franchise history and gave him a pass-rushing partner on the other side in a trade for Robert Quinn.Even after the two biggest offseason moves for owner/general manager Jerry Jones and company Youth Zack Martin Jersey , defensive line remains a high priority in the draft.The Cowboys probably won’t pick until the second round Friday after trading their first-round choice to Oakland for receiver Amari Cooper last season.“We think it’s probably the deepest position in this draft,” said executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones, Jerry’s oldest son. “We think it’s deeper than it’s been in many years.”Coming off their second NFC East title and first playoff win in three seasons with the star pairing of quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys have the 58th overall pick in the second round.The signing of Lawrence to a $105 million, five-year contract after a second consecutive Pro Bowl season answered the most pressing question for Dallas going into the draft. At $21 million per year, the deal surpasses retired quarterback Tony Romo and other big-name predecessors. It also gives the Cowboys a feeling of freedom.“That’s our goal every offseason is to accomplish that and not feel like, ‘Hey we’ve got to take a certain position with the first pick or this second pick or we’ve got to address this position at least by the second or third round,'” Stephen Jones said. “It’s nice not to be able to do that Zack Martin Jersey Stitched , and I think that’s why we’ve had success in the draft.”Before the addition of Quinn, the two best pass rushers on the Dallas roster were second-rounders.One was early in the second with Lawrence, the first defensive end taken by the Cowboys after they released franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware in 2014. The other was late in the second in Randy Gregory, drafted in 2015 after he slid out of the first round because of off-field concerns.Gregory is suspended indefinitely, his fourth ban for substance-abuse violations, and 2017 first-rounder Taco Charlton has not progressed as hoped. Because of that, the Cowboys won’t rule out taking another pass rusher with their first pick.But it wouldn’t be a shock if Dallas drafted an interior defensive lineman before the third round for the first time since taking Russell Maryland No. 1 overall in 1991.Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli believes in making productive tackles out of lower-round picks. But if Dallas breaks that mold, Miami’s Gerald Willis could be among the prospects.Safety is also a popular choice in mock drafts.“We’ve put ourselves in a position to have total flexibility as to taking care of a need Youth Travis Frederick Jersey ,” Jerry Jones said. “We’re still looking at defensive line. We’ve got some options at tight end. We’ve got some options at safety.”SPEAKING OF TIGHT ENDThe return of Jason Witten makes tight end one of the more intriguing topics. The 11-time Pro Bowler is poised to set the club record with his 16th season after deciding to come back following a one-year retirement to be the lead analyst for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.”Witten, who signed a one-year deal worth up to $5 million, will be 37 and supposedly won’t take virtually every snap the way he did for 15 years. But even Jerry Jones admits he’ll have to see that to believe it.The Cowboys drafted Dalton Schultz in the fourth round last year, and 24-year-old Blake Jarwin tied a club record for a tight end with three touchdown catches in the regular-season finale, a 36-35 win over the New York Giants. Dallas likes both, but still might be looking for its next two-way standout at tight end.SPEAKING OF SAFETYDallas never got serious in the bidding for free agent Earl Thomas (the three-time All-Pro went to Baltimore) and settled for inexpensive and steady seven-year veteran George Iloka. There’s little question safety tops the list of positions needing a young potential star for the Cowboys.The most recent time they drafted a safety higher than the third round was Roy Williams, a 2002 first-rounder. Byron Jones, a late first-round pick in 2015 Travis Frederick Jersey Stitched , played safety early in his career after getting drafted as a cornerback.ELLIOTT’S BACKUPIt seems crazy to consider running back a position of need for a team with a starter who will be 24 and already has two rushing titles in three seasons (Elliott).But seldom-used Rod Smith hasn’t re-signed, and the Cowboys would be intrigued if one of the draft’s better backs were available late in the second round.“We can’t and I don’t expect to have a substitute for Zeke,” Jerry Jones said. “But someone that can do what Zeke does, which is not necessarily a change-of-pace guy, is the preference for me.” Round 2 is almost here and the Cowboys will finally pick."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsDallas Cowboys 2019 Draft2019 Cowboys Draft: Three names you absolutely need to know for day twoNew,113commentsRound 2 is almost here and the Cowboys will finally pick.CDTShareTweetShareShare2019 Cowboys Draft: Three names you absolutely need to know for day twoReinhold Matay-USA TODAY SportsWe’ve finally reached the point in the 2019 NFL Draft where the Cowboys are going to make some selections. On day two they’ve got picks number 58 and 90. That’s enough to make some noise.It’s so hard to know who the Cowboys will take because we have a good chunk of picks to go between now and then. While there are a lot of possibilities, NFL Network’s Jane Slater dropped three names that are all likely if not probable (assuming nothing crazy happens). Two for pick 58 and one for 90.Slater notes that the Cowboys would “love” to nab Virginia safety Juan Thornhill, but that they feel the likelihood of him still being there is very low. She then explains that Central Florida defensive tackle Trysten Hill is someone whom Rod Marinelli has developed quite a liking for.Hill could be the 3-technique that the Cowboys currently need Youth Sean Lee Jersey , but he doesn’t carry the crush value that Thornhill does in the eyes of most fans. Whoever the Cowboys do take with their first selection, Slater mentions that we should be on the lookout for Alabama running back Damien Harris as an option for Dallas in the third round. Ezekiel Elliott needs help after all.All of these names have been mocked to the Cowboys by one person or another. They’re ones that have been strong possibilities for some time, it appears that is only growing in the eleventh hour.
