After a disappointing 2020 campaign, the Dallas Cowboys are in a great spot to add some real talent to their roster. The NFL draft is less than a week away, and like every year, rumors are sprouting all other the league. The Dallas Cowboys have been mentioned a number of times in NFL draft gossip, and as much as it excites fans to make a blockbuster trade and potentially trade up for Florida tight end Kyle Pitts, the Cowboys seem to be staying exactly where they are.

Cowboys fans know better than anyone. Jerry Jones is a man of luxury. It remains to be seen on whether or not the Cowboys owner will be drafting from his 357ft yacht or a $1.15 billion stadium. Even with all of Jones’ toys, he has his eye on a new prize. Kyle Pitts seems to have the intangibles, the skills and the size to become a generational talent, and he very well could be the best player in this year’s draft. Although, the price for Pitts is more than even Jerry Jones can afford.

Now, if Pitts by some miracle falls to the 10th pick there is no doubt that he should become a Dallas Cowboy, but realistically there is a minute possibility of that dream senecio to come to fruition. The Miami Dolphins have been rumored to be fielding offers for the 6th overall pick. Here’s why Dallas is not throwing draft picks to try and acquire Miami’s pick–

  1. There is no guarantee Kyle Pitts will be on the board at No. 6.
  2. Dallas needs to add defensive talent
  3. Dak Prescott is already an MVP candidate with the weapons he has right now.

Realistically, with 10 picks in this year’s draft, Dallas could snag Miami’s pick, but there is no reason to believe the John Mackey award winner will get out of the top five. The Atlanta Falcons could be looking to add another weapon for Matt Ryan. The same could be said for the Bengals and Joe Burrow. A guy like Pitts is almost impossible to pass up, especially if three quarterbacks go off the board early.

Dallas cannot overthink this draft. Patrick Certain II, and Micah Parsons are day one starters for any team in the NFL today, and right now the Cowboys are lacking at cornerback, and linebacker. Defense was an all-time worst last season, and Dallas needs to focus on bulking up that side of the ball. One or both of these players will be on the board when Roger Goodell walks to the podium for the 10th overall pick. Jerry Jones needs to kick his feet up on his yacht and wait to pick one of those players.

As great as it would be to have Kyle Pitts in a Cowboys uniform as a potential suitor to future Hall of Famer Jason Witton, there are too many risks involved to roll the dice on a trade. Dak Prescott is already locked and loaded with guys to throw to. Blake Jarwin and Dalton Shultz are serviceable tight ends who can be impact players. Defense needs to be the focus for the Dallas front office come April 29.
