The Dallas Cowboys will select fourth in the 2016 draft, which will be held April 28-30 in Chicago. Here are prospects CBS Sports and NFLDraftScout.com draft analyst Dane Brugler targets for Dallas, along with his comments:
Myles Jack, LB, UCLA (6-1, 225) One of the best cover linebackers to enter the draft in recent memory, Jack is a twitchy athlete with the instincts to match his speed. If Rolando McClain is not re-signed, the Cowboys can move Sean Lee back to the middle and add Jack at weakside linebacker.
Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State (6-5, 275) Not only is Bosa physically gifted, but he understands how to use those gifts to leverage blocks and disrupt the pocket. Regardless of whether Greg Hardy returns to Dallas next season, Bosa adds another dimension to the Cowboys’ streaky pass rush.
Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss (6-2, 210) A not-quite-as-dynamic version of Dez Bryant, Treadwell has a large catch radius and reliable ball skills to make tough catches look routine. While Bryant is the No. 1, Treadwell would be a fantastic addition opposite him as the Cowboys’ No. 2 receiver.
Jared Goff, QB, California (6-4, 210) Although the physical traits don’t jump off the screen, Goff can make all the necessary NFL throws and is advanced between the ears with a quick trigger. The Cowboys need to address the future of the position in the off-season, and Goff might be too good to pass up.
Jalen Ramsey, DB, Florida State (6-1, 202) After starring at safety his first two years at FSU, Ramsey moved to cornerback in 2015 and showed the versatility to play both spots in the NFL. With his size, speed and playmaking instincts, his best position with the Cowboys would be at safety, but the only reason he wouldn’t be a fit is because his skill set is too similar to that of Byron Jones.
