The Dallas Cowboys have major needs on the defensive side of the ball, and some think there are some needs on offense as well. With a lot to improve upon, there are going to be a lot of conversations about who the Cowboys should be looking at on the first few days of the draft. For every prospect the Cowboys should look into drafting, there is going to be one they shouldn’t draft. The Cowboys have a good chance to really upgrade their team, and especially their defense in the 2021 NFL Draft, and make a true push for the playoffs.
Can Cowboys get back on track after bad 2020 season?
Last year, Dallas likely abandoned any plan they had in the draft when Ceedee Lamb fell to them at 17. That was not a bad pick. Yes, the defense was awful, but taking a defender over Lamb wouldn’t have solved that. The team really likes their second-round pick from last year, Trevon Diggs, and hopes that a transition to cover three-under Dan Quinn will jump-start his development.

The first two days of the draft are crucial, and when the Cowboys are on the clock, there will be players they should draft and players they shouldn’t draft. Here are three players the Dallas Cowboys should avoid in the 2021 NFL Draft.
