Recapping the first two days of the draft for the Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys came into the draft weekend with a few different needs. Heading into day two, they may have added another one with Jason Witten potentially retiring to take over Monday Night Football duties. Owner Jerry Jones has said that Witten will take the weekend to spend with his family to make a final decision.
The Cowboys have addressed their need at linebacker and offensive line by selecting Leighton Vander Esch in the first round and Connor Williams in the second round. In third round, the Cowboys got their receiver Michael Gallup.

Cowboys Biggest Needs Heading Into Day Three
Safety – The Cowboys decided not to trade up for Derwin James after Derwin fell to pick 17 even though he was higher on the Cowboys board than Vander Esch, according to Mike Fisher from 1053 the fan. They also did not get a trade done for Earl Thomas.
Tight end – The current tight ends on the roster have a combined nine NFL receptions. Of course, with Witten in front of them they barely touched the field but that is definitely a need heading into day three.
Defensive tackle – The Cowboys were reportedly in love with Vita Vea if he fell to them in the first round and with the questions around David Irving defensive tackle is a need.

Best Players Available Heading into Day Three
Mo Hurst, defensive tackle – Michigan
Ian Thomas, tight end – Indiana
Josh Sweat, defensive end – Florida State
Jalyn Holmes, defensive end – Ohio State
Shaquem Griffin, linebacker – UCF
