Cowboys receive extra fourth round pick

Cowboys will receive an extra fourth round draft pick thanks to Stephen Bowen, read here.

The Cowboys will have an additional draft choice next month with the NFL awarding the franchise a fourth-round compensatory pick, having lost defensive end Stephen Bowen to Washington last year as an unrestricted free agent.

The Cowboys will have eight picks in the three-day draft with picks in each round and two in the fourth. The second fourth rounder will be No. 135 overall. The compensatory selection cannot be traded.

The Cowboys need to stop taking guys like Akwasi Owusu Ansah in the fourth round. No more projects from small schools who don’t have a set position. Rounds 3-6 build the foundation of guys who are starters, but not Super Stars. When the Cowboys turn those picks into a guy who isn’t around two or three years after the draft it kills the depth on the club.

    Absolutely! We need as many new starters as we can find. Later round players have to develop and within 2 years. Failure to draft well the last 3-4 years is why we are mediocre at 8-8. Did alright in FA 2 weeks ago, but we need some serious players in the draft. No projects, no MCL knees waiting on guys for an extra year. We’ve been doing that and it delays the improvement. Nice to get Lee and maybe Carter, but we need new starters on the D line for sure and the secondary.

    I hope they use it to move up, not down ! When in the last few years have they done anything to demonstrate that they can draft good player after the first round. Rounds 2 thru 5 ? Tragic !

    I think Jason G. is better at listening to his scouts than Wade was. I thought last year was pretty solid.

    I understand the comment, but I always think of Demarcus Ware when people say no more small school projects without a set position.
