Rookie review: LB DeMarvion Overshown looks to be fresh face of new Mike Zimmer defense

Rookie review: LB DeMarvion Overshown looks to be fresh face of new Mike Zimmer defense

The Cowboys have put a lot of pressure on DeMarvion Overshown this season.

The words redshirt or wasted year has been used a lot when reviewing the Cowboys 2023 draft class, like we’ve done here with DT Mazi Smith and TE Luke Schoonmaker. In the truest sense of those terms though, only second-round pick DeMarvion Overshown was lost for the season with an ACL injury suffered early in the preseason that ended his rookie year in the NFL. The linebacker out of Texas was drafted under the leadership of Dan Quinn, who left Dallas for the Washington Commanders this offseason....

Cowboys’ 2024 draft plans are anyone’s guess

Cowboys’ 2024 draft plans are anyone’s guess

At the time of this writing, we're roughly 80 hours from the start of the 2024 NFL Draft.

We know the Dallas Cowboys have a lot of holes to fill on the roster. They've lost several players to free agency and retirement.

They've only signed two outside free agents – a linebacker and a free agent — but still need players at those positions.

Barring any trades, Dallas...

Cowboys draft 2024: Comparing Jackson Powers-Johnson and Graham Barton

Cowboys draft 2024: Comparing Jackson Powers-Johnson and Graham Barton

Which center prospect would be best for Dallas in your opinion?

The Cowboys are inching closer every day to being on the clock with the 24th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, yet there is still zero clarity on what they might do with that selection. Offensive line seems to be the most likely position they’ll target, but even then there are questions as to whether they’ll look for a left tackle or land a center.

If it’s the latter, there are two center prospects that have emerged as popular fits for the Cowboys: Duke’s Graham Barton and Oregon’s...

Dak Prescott or Trey Lance? Part II: Best-case scenario for the Cowboys

Dak Prescott or Trey Lance? Part II: Best-case scenario for the Cowboys

The conversation around quarterbacks marches on for the Cowboys.

To extend or not to extend, that is the question. Are the Dallas Cowboys going to re-sign Dak Prescott, who is the face of this franchise, or has the front office decided that a new, more affordable face is preferred?

This dilemma has been the topic of many conversations as fans and media outlets repeatedly express how poorly the front office has handled this situation. At least that is what people believe now, but we don’t know how this story ends. [Yesterday, we examined the worst-case scenarios for this ongoing quarterback...

Cowboys draft: Adam Schefter says it ‘would be a surprise’ if the Cowboys passed on Jonathon Brooks at pick 56

The Dallas Cowboys need to pick a RB in this upcoming draft and an NFL insider has a name

The Dallas Cowboys have a glaring hole in their offensive backfield. With the team choosing to move on from Ezekiel Elliott last offseason, and Tony Pollard moving on to Tennessee this offseason, 2024 is officially destined for a complete reset at the position in Dallas. As of now, Rico Dowdle is the most reliable option on the roster.

It has been assumed that the Cowboys will be taking one of the backs in this upcoming class for much of the offseason....

10 years, 10 picks: Cowboys’ best Day 2 draft picks since 2014

10 years, 10 picks: Cowboys’ best Day 2 draft picks since 2014

The Dallas Cowboys have had some solid Day 2 picks in the last decade.

The argument over what’s held the Cowboys back for so many years is multi-faceted, but one clear contributor is the success rate of their second- and third-round draft picks. Dallas has struggled on Day 2 of the draft for many years, but not without some wins along the way. Let’s look at some of their better Day 2 picks from the last decade.

We’ve talked plenty before about Dallas’ ugly history in the second round of the draft, going back all the way to the poo-poo...

Cowboys news: Evaluating Dallas’ trade options before the draft

Notable headlines surrounding America’s team.

3 trades Cowboys should make during 2024 NFL Draft (and 1 they shouldn’t) - Jerry Trotta, The Landry Hat

Dallas should make these trades. Whether they will is an entirely different question.

2. Cowboys should trade for Treylon Burks

Piggybacking off of Bateman, the Cowboys need another receiver. Treylon Burks is a far more compelling than the out-of-favor Raven. The Titans used the first-round pick they got in return from the A.J. Brown trade on Burks, and it hasn’t panned out for them.

Burks has fallen victim to injuries...

SB Nation mock draft: Dallas Cowboys select center Jackson Powers-Johnson in first round

SB Nation mock draft: Dallas Cowboys select center Jackson Powers-Johnson in first round

Our pick is in for the Dallas Cowboys in SB Nation’s mock draft.

The Dallas Cowboys’ slow 2024 offseason led to a couple of prominent offensive linemen leaving the team in free agency. Tyron Smith and Tyler Biadasz were entrenched starters who left in free agency, creating a hole at center and left tackle. Along with positions like running back and linebacker, offensive line has been a popular positional pick in many mock drafts. Given the value placed on the offensive line over those other spots, centers and tackles have popped up in the first round of many mocks for...

Dak Prescott or Trey Lance? Part I: Worst-case scenario for the Cowboys

If the Cowboys front office is playing with fire when it comes to Dak Prescott and his contract situation, here’s how the whole thing could burn to the ground.

The Dak Prescott contract saga with the Dallas Cowboys has dominated the headlines this offseason. And every time Jerry Jones, Stephen Jones, or Prescott himself speaks, more fuel is added to the fire as fans are left wondering if the quarterback we’ve cheered on the last eight years will be wearing the star after the upcoming season.

Adding more spice to this ordeal is the trade for former third-overall pick Trey...

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott’s change in tone about future outlook should have fans worried

A QB who couldn’t picture himself in another uniform before, now Dak Prescott is openly discussing all options for his future.

This offseason has been a perplexing one for Cowboys Nation. It feels like a broken record at this point, but with the activity and pursuit to make this team better so remarkably low since the season ended, it bares repeating once again.

The cause and effect of this plan of attack, in what many view to be a pivotal year, has already begun even if we do not realize it. The latest example comes from Dak Prescott and his...
