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.
